I'd keep Williams.  He had a bad game last week, but had a touchdown in Week 1, and almost had 1000 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie last year.  Moore seems to always have something bothering him, and Henderson for what it's worth wasn't even drafted in either of my leagues...both of them 12 team 25 man rosters.  Sure, he got picked up during the opening Packer game, but to me there's nothing better than picking someone up off the waiver wire and trading them for a guy who has had his price drop.  I just unloaded Scott Chandler, Lance Kendricks, and Dexter McCluster for Aaron Hernandez and Ladainian Tomlinson yesterday.  I'll just wait a month or so with Gates as my lone TE, and then break out the double TE formation with Calvin Johnson at WR. I',m pumped about that.

Williams is a potential stud.

I have been offered Jermichael Finley for Ryan Matthews.

I already have Gronkowski, but do you think he will keep it up? I do looooove Finley though lol.

I already have Steven Jackson, Ahmad Bradshaw, and James Starks.

What would you guys do? I love having RB depth and you can never have enough but Jermichael may be my favorite player so it might be hard to turn down.

If you can only start one TE, I would roll with Gronkowski.  If you can start both of them, personally I would do it without knowing the rest of your roster or lineup specs.  Mathews might be turning the corner though...and don't forget about Steven Jackson's injury.

Yeah I declined it. We can only start one TE

One tight end means you have probably the best one in Gronkowski right now.  Even when Hernandez gets back there's absolutely no need for you at the position.

In a league where we must start 3 WR's (can't convince the dinosaurs to switch to a flex).  Normally I'm in good shape with White, Austin and Wayne with Floyd and Bess as bench players.  Well, Austin and Floyd are out, and I picked up Buffalo's David Nelson.  Going to start White and Wayne, but not sure whether to start Bess (@ CLE) or Nelson (vs. NE).  Bess is a better player, but NE's pass defense is still giving up a ton of yards.  Or is there another option that might be available on the street that I'm not thinking of?

Edit:  Is Crayton worth a pickup with Floyd out against the awful Chiefs? Or Nate Washington?

Crayton might not be a bad option, especially with Gates dealing with his inevitable year-long injury and Floyd out. But it really seems like with those guys out, Rivers will either dump it off or force it in to Jackson. You could also see if Massaquoi is available. McCoy is looking towards him a lot, and it looks like he'll probably play.

Will you have this left guard to be the 224th pick?

I was offered Mendenhall and Tampas Mike Williams for Steven Jackson and Seattles Mike Williams. It looks like this trade is heavily in my favor using the evaluate trade feature. I'm kinda torn.

NFL Blitz has better referees.

Whoever gets Tampa's Mike Williams and Mendenhall should accept yesterday.

Donovan McNabb v. KC
Josh Freeman v. Indy
Rex Grossman v. StL

Need to choose one. I don't like the idea of playing McNabb, but KC's defense is terrible. Then again, they're defense might just be bad enough that AP will run all over them and McNabb won't need to throw. Freeman is probably the best overall QB of the three, but I hate starting a QB against Indy because they're almost guaranteed a sack/fumble or two from Freeney and Mathis. Grossman...good God I can't even believe I'm thinking about doing this, but he's probably the best option of the three for this week.

Thoughts?

When in doubt....go the Monday Night route, especially when he's your best player out of the three.

I'm in a league with a real Packer homer who is lusting over my Rodgers. So I thought I'd sell Rodgers high.

I proposed giving up Rogers/ Santonio Holmes/ Reggie Bush and getting Ray Rice/Stevie Johnson/ Matt Schaub. I already have Stafford, and you can never have enough RBs. It's only a 8 team league, so Holmes and Bush have essentially zero value based on who's available.

I was hoping to propose something ridiculous, but based on Yahoo's trade evaluator, it's actually pretty even numbers wise.

what do you think?

It's hard for me to evaluate because I can't remember the last time I was in an 8-team league. I watched my dad's 8-team league draft this year and was blown away by how stacked those teams are.

That said, you could easily play matchups with Stafford/Schaub. The one thing that I would be careful about is the idea of "selling Rodgers high." That assumes he'll drop off at some point, and for many reasons not related to being a Packer fan, I don't know that you can make that assumption. He's been lighting teams up for awhile now, and I don't see McCarthy suddenly deciding to run it 35 times a game. Considering your QB situation is already strong, and you're picking up Rice, and I would call Johnson a slight upgrade over Holmes, I'd say you're getting a pretty good deal.

Should I trade Wes Welker for Cam Newton? 

I'm set at WR with Welker, DeSean Jackson and Nicks, but we also play a flex so I usually start all 3. 

At QB I have Bradford and Campbell, I just play matchups on them and hope to scrape together 15-20 points.  (It's a 16 team league, so there's no waiver QB's available).

PPR? I lean no.
Non-PPR? I lean yes.

However, you're buying high with a guy you should be selling high. I know this advice is two days late, but I'd shop around a little bit if you can hold the offer open.

No problem, I appreciate the advice.  I had leaned towards yes as well.  Although I definitely feel like I'm buying high on Cam, I feel like I am selling high on Welker, too.  He's had an amazing year so far but I don't quite expect him to continue to put up the same numbers the rest of the way.

TE - Vernon Davis @ DET, or Aaron Hernandez vs. DAL.

I have to start 3 WR's (already starting Austin & White) but am debating between Wayne @ CIN, David Nelson @ NYG, Jacoby Jones @ BAL (stunk it up last week in place of Johnson) or Mike Thomas @ PIT.  Leaning towards Wayne.

Hernandez is still nicked up, and the Lions D is a really nice matchup for Davis and the game itself may be a high-scoring affair. I go Davis over Hernandez no question.

I agree on Wayne vs. Cincy vs the other options.

I don't know if Hernandez did anything, but I feel your pain if you started Vernon Davis. He's been a bit of a disappointment this year.

Edit: And just as I say that, Hernandez catches the GW TD.

Aaron Hernandez is basically the starting WR opposite Wes Welker and is called a TE.  If he's playing, you should start him every week.
