Depends on if your league takes points away for interceptions.
Yes, it does, and Warner is my backup QB to Cutler most weeks.
Chilli, hope you took my advise and started Orton.
If Stewart is keep eligible for next year, great move. If not, might have been a mistake getting rid of Warner. Atleast Stewart should vulture the majority of the goaline carries in Carolina.
I certainly did! Won last week, but since I screwed up this week, and forgot to put in a kicker, I lost by 7 points. With my kicker, I would have had 10 more points.
My current starting TE is Greg Olsen (vs. MIN).
Available free agents are:
David Martin (BAL)
Dustin Keller (@OAK)
What would you guys do? Input is very much appreciated.
I'd stick with Olsen, who I think is either 6th or 7th in yards from the TE position this year. So he can give you a consistent 3-4 points yardage wise over most scrub TEs who just give you an goose egg or 1-2 points.
If Scheffler (groin injury) was 100% healthy, of course he'd by my choice to start. Problem with groin and hamsting injuries are they can act up at any time and take out a player out of the game after just one bad play. Just look at Joseph Addai who pulled his hamsting on one of his first few plays and never returned. I'd rather have the sure thing.
Finally, if this is a heavy TD league where yardage don't count much, might want to take a flyer on Dustin Keller who might be a sleeper. Keller almost scored his 3rd TD in 3 games but the TD was called back because of penalty. Either way, Favre looks for him near the end zone as shown by their last three games, plus don't forget Keller also caught Favre's first TD in the preseason also.
Thanks for the input! I've gotten 4 responses (here and elsewhere) and 4 different answers I'll have to sit down and think about it.
Here's a tougher question, Choose 3:
Frank Gore (@NYG)
Earnest Graham (SEA)
Warrick Dunn (SEA)
Jonathan Stewart (@NO)
Derrick Ward (SF)
Kevin Smith (@HOU)
Ricky Williams (BAL)
Frank Gore is a lock, but do I go with 1 or both of TB running backs? What about Stewart and Ward, who both might do quite well?
Gore, Graham and Stewart. Those three are starters, why the other four are backups and you have to hope they get the right matchup or what not. Again, go for the sure thing.
So I went over my logic above, but right now (8 months until I need to pick my keepers ) I am thinking about keeping Frank Gore, Kevin Smith, and Jonathan Stewart.
Therefore I am trying to find a way to get something for Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, and Anquan Boldin. Whether that be picks or another player, it's something.
What are some thoughts on this?
