    Need to pick up a QB for this week

    Since Romo is on a bye this week and I don't have a backup (due to the fact my league can only have 5 backups and I've had some injuries), I need to pick someone up for this week.
    Here are the (depressing) options (in the order of projected points by yahoo):

    Cleo Lemon (NYG-in london)
    David Carr (IND)
    Alex Smith (NO)
    Tararvis Jackson (PHI)
    Trent Edwards (@NYJ)
    Quinn Gray (@TB)
    Kellen Clemens (BUF)

    So, who should I pick up.
    Also, please give some reasons to your pick.

    T-Jack may not be ready because of the broken finger. I would go with Alex Smith against NO, since the Saints D has been burned deep this year.

    You might be best of to go with the Lemon mainly because he is the only one that has been putting the ball in the air.
    But any buyers of Lemon beware.
    The Giants sack the crap out of QBs.

    Carr is kind of a lemon, he could get yanked for Vinny "model T" Testeverde.
    Carr does have a great WR in Smith that is his only polish.

    A.Smith, can't trust.
    TJ, can't trust.
    Gray, can't trust.

    Is Clemens starting?

    Edwards has a high completion rate, but he really hasn't pruduced much.
    Him and Evans were trying to get on the same page last week.

    In this order..... the first three are a toss up.

    Lemon
    Carr
    Clemens if he starts.
    Edwards
    the rest........ I wouldn't touch. My heart wanted to tell you go with TJ which he could have a good game, but after the last 2 weekends only completing 15 passes!

    There is no Greise in your league.
    He is already snagged up.

    To me the obvious choice is Cleo Lemon.

    Re: Need to pick up a QB for this week

    Ok, I looked around at some of the other teams for the posibility of trading for a QB.
    I found a team that has Brees, Anderson and Griese, but also has three empty positions (RB and 2 RB/WR) open due to bye weeks.
    So, I cut Oakland's defense (who I picked up the week before for a spot start) and picked up Mushin Muhammad and offered him for Griese.
    I think these is a good chance that he would have just cut Griese anyway, but I didn't want to take the chance and wait only to find out that he kept him.

    Either Clemens or Edwards is the best on that list.
    I'd go with Clemens because he's the home start.

    Sorry, must have had another brain fart or senior moment. My appologies.
