    Thanks guys. I will take the advice and stick with Clay. My RBs need some help so maybe look at what I can pick up there instead.

        I don't have strong QB options in my 12 team league: RGIII and Roethlisberger.

        There are still some reasonable options on the wire since a few teams are currently only carrying one QB. I love Locker vs. Dallas this week. Carson Palmer is also on the wire. He has a pretty tasty matchup @ NYG this week and a fairly favorable schedule for the season (with a few exceptions, ie, two Seattle matchups).

        Would you drop Roethlisberger for either one of these guys? I'd lean Palmer. Not that RGIII/Palmer should make me feel much better than RGIII/Roethlisberger, but Palmer has some pretty nice weapons and won't have to deal with weather in home games as the season progresses.

          I would drop Griffin before Big Ben.

            I just ran and benched Peterson.

            Then I realized how shitty my RB depth was.

              I dont like Ben for fantasy football. You never know what you are going to get from him and with RG3 there is still some hope. If I was dropping one it would be Ben and out of the two QBs you mentioned I like Palmer better. Now whether to actually do it is a tough question. I would probably roll the dice and do it.

                Definitely not going to drop RGIII at this point. He has upside. Looks bad in the new system so far but it has been one regular season game. He has some nice weapons to throw to and there are going to be times where he's going to have to take off running. Those rushing yards really boost a QBs point total, obviously.

                I've had Big Ben on many fantasy football teams and I know what to expect. Some pretty good games, but with some total clunkers throw in (ie, last night). Carson Palmer might be the same guy though. I like that WR corps pretty well though and may pull the trigger.

                  You are going to regret it if you drop Ben instead of Griffin. Go with Palmer and he will be a decent addition to your team.

                    I think I'm going to put in a waiver claim for a RB in my 12 team 1.0 PPR league this week. I have Gio Bernard as a good #1 but my options at #2 are as follows: L. Miller (sucks, but should be a reasonable #2 with Moreno out a while), Pierce (meh, but he gets touches), Gerhart (yikes...), Sankey (holding and hoping, but he's the drop for one of these other guys).

                    Here are the RBs I'm looking at:

                    K. Davis–best upside but for how long? Charles will be back
                    S. Ridley-should have value all season but a maddening start week to week with NE backfield (also doesn't catch any passes)
                    D. Brown-may have a starting job longer than K. Davis, but probably won't be as good.

                    Which one and why?

                      I'd pick Davis over the other two without question. They weren't shy about using him a lot this week in the run and passing games. Ridley will still lose points to Vereen and we've seen enough from Brown over the years to know how limited his value is, even as a starter.

                      Check on Miller's status as he got hurt too. I would either start him or Davis.

                        Miller practiced today.

                          I think I am going to go with Davis for the short-term boost. He is a potential difference maker for me over the next few weeks. Plus, the guy who has Charles is a big rival in this league and I like the secondary benefit of keeping Davis out of his hands.

                          Miller is going to play (as Rev mentioned, he practiced today) but I think Davis is a better start.

                              I'd go Davis with Ridley as second option since he is always one fumble away from the doghouse with Belichick.

                                I didn't drop either one of them. I was a bit nervous about Palmer's shoulder when it came time to pull the trigger so I held off. I'll be dropping Griffin this week, of course. Your boy Big Ben is @ Carolina though, and that's a terrible matchup. I'm going to pick up Cousins if I can get him but I'm using my waiver priority on K. Davis.
