    Fantasy advice?

    First, who to start and who to sit for WR's. I'm in a 14 team league and we're playing for cash. I currently sit in 2nd place.

    For my WR's I have

    Laveranues Coles
    Dwayne Bowe
    Patrick Crayton
    Joe Jerevicius
    Marques Colston

    Although Jerevicius gets some nice red zone TD's, i've pretty much eliminated him after Crayton's 35 point performance last week. Now... with the saints offense in a slump and Crayton and Bowe doing well lately, who do I start? Laveranues is pretty much a given for 10 points each week but Crayton and Bowe are both up and down along with Colston. I need to choose 3.

    I made a trade- Jerious Norwood straight up for Chester Taylor. I need a bye week fill in for my two starters (Addai and Barber III) and I figured Taylor has a better chance of having a breakout game than Norwood since Taylor is *technically* the starter. Either way, neither of them have done jack this season.

    With Vernon Davis on the mend and Alex Smith (the TE) not really producing, should I drop Smith or the unproductive Davis and pick up Scaife/Shaincoe/Bubba Franks/Justin Peelle?

    At RB in a 14 team league you should be set.
    At WR you are looking good too. Bowe will see more and more balls, but may struggle in tough matchups. Crayton is a great option until Glenn comes back. Colston has to break out sooner or later. Coles is also very solid, but shares ball with Cotchery. Look at those 4 and choose based on matchups (who they play that week). Trading Crayton while his stock is high might not be a bad idea.
    At TE, Cut Smith, go with Scaife.

    For a 14 team league you have a nice team.

    Sit Bowe
    - Colston/Coles are for sure so it's down to Bowe & Crayton.
    In even matchups I usually pick the MNF guy.......plus Buffalo isn't very good

    Bowe and Crayton for sure start. Colston and Coles are a toss up. If Pennington gets enough time then Coles will have a big day, but that is a big if. Colston on the other hand is going through a sophmore slump. Brees is awful too this year, and their offense might struggle big time without McAlister.

    I would start Coles. Wait for Colston to prove his worth before you start him.

    Re: Fantasy advice?

    Yeah I think I'm gonna go with Crayton, Bowe and Coles.

    While I'm here..

    Rivers vs. Bears

    or

    Campbell vs. Lions


    I'm definitely leaning towards Rivers since Campbell was just a quick sign since Alex Smith is probably done for the year.

    Yeah Bowe has been huge and Crayton ofcourse with his big game, i might be wrong but i don't think Colston has done much yet, so i'd also take Coles on this one,and im havin the same problem, so i was wondering some opinions about my lineup, here are my receivers (im not playing for $ so less pressure ) Shaun McDonald, L. Coles, Steve Smith, and Santonio Holmes (Patrick Crayton is a free agent, are any of these receivers worth dropping for him?) i can start 3 receivers btw, thanks-

    Tough call.
    I would have to go with Shockey, of course just as soon as you do that Tony G. will have a big game.
