Couch although I do not like the idea of dropping any of those receivers. I guess Kevin Johnson if you must.

Well, I also have derrick mason, who before his injury was my only real productive receiver.. he should be back this week. I only start 2 receivers.. I am trying to use them as trade bait.

Ditch Glenn, he has only had one decent game this year. Start either Maddox (has been playing pretty well) or Dilfer (decent track record)

Is randy moss ever going to contribute? I'm thinking of trading him for a backup kicker. Not so much his fault I suppose since pep keeps throwing to the other team.

Speaking of backup kickers, I need one since Longwell is on a bye. Kickers for these teams are available:

Carolina (vs TB), Cincy (vs Tenn), Houston (at Jaguars), Jacksonville (vs Houston), Minn (vs Chi), Giants (at Phi), Jets (vs Cle), San Fran (vs Ari), Seattle (at Dallas), Tenn (at Cincy) and Wash (vs Indy)

No negative points for misses, 3 points each except 45+ are 4 points

Kickers are a crap shoot. Find one kicking in a dome.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Vick at QB (Culpepper is not good this year & NE has good pass defense).

Smith, Ward & Stallworth at WR. If Stallworth isn't playing, go with Jackson, I guess.

And I'd lean towards Jacksonville for the Defense. Houston has an awful offense & are heading towards shattering the sacks allowed record. Pittsburgh has the better defense, but I think Baltimore can do more on offense.

I have the Pitt D and they are going against Baltimore this week. Should I go with them or pick up one of the following off waivers:

Indy (at Wash)
Buffalo (vs Det)
Tenn (at Cincy)

Pts for sacks, TOs, returns for TD (INT & KO/Punt), and low PA.

Cincy has the lowest PPG, one of the highest number of turnovers (the same as Washington), and allowed a pretty good number of sacks.

Detroit has played pretty well lately & Indy scares me after Monday night. I'd lean towards Tenn, if you wouldn't have to drop Pittsburgh. If the choice requires dropping Pittsburgh, I'd just play them against the Ravens.

No - I am keeping Pittsburgh. I have another piece of dead wood to drop.

Yeah - you are probably right about Detroit but I thought it might be a good since they are at Buffalo. Indy is so tempting because the Skins OL is so bad right now and Matthews is bound to be rusty.

need a running back this week?

Amso Zeroue is starting for the Steelers, easily could have 100 yards and a TD. He is good enough to be a teams starter in the future.

Just a heads up.

Beware of the Colts D. I picked them up for one week to go against the Bengals and it almost backfired. Dillon ran wild on them so I would look elsewhere.

I actually picked up the Colts D on 2 separate occasions. It worked out great vs the Texans but badly against the Bungles (of course I had Dillon as well in my starting lineup that week so it was okay).

I decided to stick with Pitt this week.

Me.

Culpepper MIN (DEN will rush Portis all game).
Smith JAX
Ward PIT
Jackson (I guess. I would look over the waiver wire here).
Davis WAS
White CLE (you have no problem at RB this week, IMHO)
Pollard IND
Akers PHI
either D is fine. JAX should be ball control over HOU.

Look for a better WR than DJackson and you are set.
