I guess I should post all of my trade proposals here before approving/denying.

What is this guy thinking? He offers me Domanick Davis and Ashley Lelie for Kevin Jones and Andre Johnson. But 10 minutes later, he cancels the trade proposal. But this morning, he emails me and asks if I would do Fred Taylor or Domanick Davis and Ashley Lelie for Kevin Jones and Andre Johnson.

Seems to me that Davis is better than Kevin Jones and Lelie is better than Andre Johnson, who is hurt and who I also hate.

Which DEF would you go with:

Detroit's (vs. Panthers)
Seattle's (vs. Houston)
Minnesota's (at Chicago)

Im leaning towards Seattle as Houston gives up alot of sacks.

Which RB would you start:
Mike Anderson (vs. New England)
Curtis Martin (at Buffalo)

Im leaning towards towards Martin since Tatum Bell is sharing carries with Anderson.

Im picking up Minnesota's D this week. (Philly on bye) So go with them.

And I would go with Martin.

To try and compensate for my depleted WR group (Joe Horn, Darrell Jackson, Braylon Edwards), I offered a guy Ronnie Brown for Derrick Mason. He's loaded at the WR position and has 3rd down backs as his starters. I hope he takes it. I have Jamal Lewis and Kevin Jones and DeShaun Foster, so I can spare Brown. He's having a solid rookie year, but I think Ricky Williams will start to steal carries this weekend.

That's a horrible trade for you. Why would you want a WR on an offense that sucks? You should be able to do better than that.

Jesse Chatman traded to the Saints, should be starting by November, everyone go pick him up!

Added: and vote for me in the TV Talk draft. I'm losing because everyone likes Arrested Development Season 2 more than Simpsons Season 5.

Dilema here...

I have Culpepper and Vick as my QBs. Culpepper has been anything but reliable where Vick is most likely going to play this week. Vick is playing against the Saint where Culpepper is playing against a fairly tough DST this year, Chicago. Both are away.

Who do I start? Hmmm...

I will ask a few more questions later. I have a decent team this year in my primary league but the QB position is one to be desired. Thanks.

chrisih8u - Dom Davis is more valuable in pts/rec. I think this guy is hoping to "buy low" on KJ and AJ. Depending on your scoring system, I might let him!

gmal - agree with your picks.

Mr. Cinema - I would take your trade if you offered it to me. Brown is nice.

peabrain - Vick if he plays.

So, I have Dominick Davis, McGahee, Droughns and Bell.

I gotta pick between Droughns and Bell. They both had good games, but Bell had over 100 yards and 2 TDs. I'm leaning towards him this week.

Shanahan once again is going to torture people with his RBs.

So here's Stallworth's production so far:

Week 1: 4.70
Week 2: 14.10
Week 3: 0.00 (and he did "play" in the game)
Week 4: 12.90
Week 5: .60

See, my problem was that I was looking at the matchups and other stuff (hmm... week 5 vs a weak GB secondary, with Horn out... should be a big day, right?). Instead, I should've looked at whether it was an even or odd week.

Anyway, here's my 3rd WR dillemma:
D. Stallworth (Atl)
Randle El (Jac)
Stokley (StL)

Favre has an off week, so for the first time since week 1 I won't have to agonize about whether to start him or Palmer. But for my 2nd RB, I have to choose between:

T. Jones (Min) if he's not hurt
L. Jordan (SD)

He has 27 catches in 4 games. My league includes pts for receptions. Is there a better WR than Mason that could I get for a rookie RB? I can't think of many.

I wouldn't start Culpepper until he shows alot of consistency, which he hasn't done at all this year.

I'm first in the waiver wire. I've got to dump Davenport. Do I pick up Tony Fisher with the Packers, or Ant. Smith or Aaron Stecker from the Saints? Anyone know which Saint is going to start?

whatever you choose, let me know. I lost my third game this year by less than 1 point. This year (in different leagues) I have losses by .95, .75, and .1

The pt/recept makes it different. Still, I think you might be able to do better than Mason, even with Ganjaman on the horizon.

Cards have a bye this upcoming week, so starting McCown and Fitzgerald might be a bit risky.

I have Culpepper and McCown as my QBs. A guy from my league has offered me P. Manning for McCown in a straight up deal.

I'm tempted to accept this deal in order to turn around and trade either Culpepper or Manning for help at WR or RB. I need help in both areas badly.

Will you guys make this trade?
