Oh, I won in Keeper? Coolio. Thought I was done for there.

Hey Grump, I see an error in my Pro record. It should read, "0 - f**king 7"

Heads up, David Wilson MAY be going on IR.

It was assumed this year would be a down year for RBs, but holy crap.

#8 50 Shades of Legion

Crawling up the ladder...

Nice 1 pt win! There have been a lot of consistently close games in Keeper so far this year.

Seriously bad timing on that trade.

So somehow in Pro I've gone from being desperate for WRs to having 5 ranked inside the top 25 of yahoo's rankings for this week, and that's not even including Brandon Marshall on bye or Roddy White.

Man, my Keeper games have been brutal. The ol' Rail Riders have had a really rough go of it.

At least I have Div 1 to fall back on.

I've been cruising on a thin roster in my other league. Sitting in first right now but I've stashed Harvin from the draft for keeper purposes and I'm still holding White from waivers in case he turns it around and gets healthy. I'm awfully tempted to swap White for Keenan Allen as someone let him go in waivers this week.

I have 5 receivers on my bench that aren't playing this week in Keeper. Fantastic. 3 are on bye and 2 are injured (not counting Crabtree on IR).

Also, seeing as how I got him in Pro and Keeper, I'm curious how much people paid in D1 and D2 for Mike James. Anybody?

I didn't bother putting a bid in. Outside of VJax (who I don't have) I'm done with the Bucs.

Mike James is still available in DII. I for one am a bit RB heavy but I'm not that surprised. Doug Martin was not producing much behind a bad O-line and the TB is very, very broken right now.

He might be an okay player to have in our PPR format, but otherwise it's the Bucs and they're almost as bad as the Jags.

In other news, Mr. Williams decided to run for a TD last night, the bastard. I hate having him on my non-GWJ team, though I got him super late in the draft.

The team on the field last night was worse than the Jags. It's going to be a battle for that #1 pick now.

DeMarco Murray out.

Some byes hitting me in both my leagues this week. Hope I muddle through.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Pryor with a 93 yard rushing TD... on my bench...

I am getting DESTROYED in D1.

One thing I learned is that Andy Dalton is coming off the bench next week.

My defense was my highest scorer of the week!

I have a nice lead. But my opponent has Rogers and Lacy tonight. Need to keep that combo under 40 or so.

Little worried.

Oh wow, up by .05 after Rogers/Lacy failed to get in and Crosby got FG points for me.

Holy crap. No more offense for Green Bay please...

That last pass put me back down by .25

Now I need GB to kick a FG. Or Lacy/Rogers to fumble...

Jeez.

EDIT: YES! 45 yard FG good!

If this season has taught me anything to this point, it's to go all-in on WRs. I benched Josh Gordon for Terrance Williams this week. Well, it turns out I should have started them both.

For week 9, I'm pretty sure I'm doing the 5 starting WR gambit and leaving only Ray Rice or Danny Woodhead in to handle RB duties. And, strangely, I'm leaning much more heavily to the Wood Head. This season has been wacky.

Though I am not in this league, I was offered the following trade and looking for opinions please?

I will get
RB Demarco Murray
TE Jordan Cameron

I will give
RB Knowshon Moreno
TE Greg Olsen

Thanks!

A lot to think about here. I'm not sure I like it because you're giving up a bona fide RB1 for a guy who may or may not be healthy and a top 5 or 6 TE. With RB scarcity the way it is this year, you're taking a big gamble here to upgrade at TE. And while Cameron is a clear upgrade over Olsen, I'm not sure he's going to have the same value he did early in the season. He's gotten lucky the past couple of weeks to earn some points during garbage time.

The problem I have with Murray is, we're not totally sure if Murray is healthy. If you remember last year, we went week after week of the team saying he was OK, that he could come back anytime, and he never did. This looks exactly the same way. Although Sunday showed they desperately need him. But he's made of glass, so I would tread lightly. You're giving up a bona fide RB1 who's healthy and productive for him, obviously with the thought that you'll get a big upgrade at TE.

I realize the Broncos say they're going to dial back Moreno's usage, but it's more than likely that he will still get red zone and passing work. If Murray is indeed healthy I would take this trade, and if you're confident he is I would probably pull the trigger. But I am not optimistic about his condition given his history, so take this at your own risk. I'm highly averse to trading for injured players but you might be different.

If you've got another RB to start I'd do the trade. You've gotta imagine Cameron will get more targets after Davone Bess imploded. Campbell is a relative unknown on what he's going to do with Cameron, but Bess dropping balls is good news for Cameron and Josh Gordon.

If you're in a non-PPR league it gets even tougher to determine because Moreno has been scoring touchdowns left and right.

Looks like Murray is coming back from his injury this coming weekend and Randle hasn't been terribly effective as a replacement. The question is how long will Murray be around?

This isn't even close. Murray is mediocre and always gets injured. Don't do it.

Thanks for the feedback. I decided to decline the trade. As mentioned, Murray is coming off yet another injury so his current status is unknown and his injury prone history seals it.
