No way you blow that kind of lead.

In one of my leagues I need a TE.

Looking @ Pitta or Scheffler. Leaning towards Schef.

Pitta has been coming on strong and with Schef you never know if he is going to be targeted or Petigrew so that is an issue.

Scheff gets some looks with all the other TE banged up in Detroit but still i think i would go with Pitta. Even though Broncos closed Meyers down that was mostly because he stayed into block. Over the yr though broncos have given up plenty to the TE spot. Just my opinion though.

I was set at TE early in the yr when Vernon Davis was going off but now TE for me a mess. I started Dressen a couple times and got 1 good game out of him. Then I picked up brandon meyers and got several good games. I was lucky to win my playoff game with him throwing at a 0. I was saved by picking up Moreno and having the balls to start him over Ryan Mathews who has been a bust for me.

So rg3 on the shelf most likely. Damn that really kills my team. Now I have to start Matt Ryan vs the Giants. I just dont think he is going to do that well vs them. Hell I am considering picking up Carson Palmer who someone dropped a week ago to make room for Bryce Brown on his roster.

What do you guys think Palmer vs the Chiefs, Or Matt Ryan vs the Giants?

My worry with Moreno, even though i will probably have to start him as my flex, is that ravens play physical and he has a history of leaving games banged up.

Yes with the Scheff pick it obviously depends if Pettigrew is down. Pitta will have a good game, then nothing.

I've noticed with Vernon Davis ever since Kap has taken over he's tanked. Myers had that huge game and like you said tossed a goose egg last week(unavailbale though)

Just my luck my TE are Davis and Meyers. I dropped Gresham from cincy earlier in the yr and that was probably a mistake.

Davis tanked way before they switched qbs though.

Detroit feeding CJ the ball because they are out of it and he has a chance to break Rices record.

I would probably start Spiller just because Moreno is more of a flex option IMO. Spiller probably a low end 1, or a solid number 2 starting RB.

Also Spiller IMO capable of bigger plays.

Spiller goes against the seachickens, BUT Fred Jackson is done for the year.

To add: I have SPiller and if I had Moreno, I would run Spiller.

I didn't think of that, but they do not have a lot of weapons on offense so Scheff should get a lot of targets(assuming pettiigrew is out).

A lot of people did that and he finally came on. There's really only been 3 TE's worth a **** this year and it was gronk, Gonzo, Graham. You could possibly throw in Heath Miller and Hernandez probably rotted on someone's bench all year.

Between Bush and Moreno, off the top of my head i would take Moreno. But i havent paid close attention to Bush last few weeks. I just feel when it comes down to being a close call go with the team that has the better offense/qb combination.

You almost know moreno will get a few redzone carries and a chance for a td. Miami sometimes doesnt get into the redzone but a few times a game.

Spiller over Moreno
Moreno over Reggie Bush

But what do you think.

Matt Ryan vs the Giants
Carson Palmer vs the Chiefs.

At the time i felt Vernon Davis had finally reached start every week no matter what zone. Wow I just cant believe an athletic stud like him doesnt get more involved. It makes me want to say the coaching staff in San Fran not that great when it comes to offense.

Does anyone doubt V Davis ability? Not me i would kill to see him with manning. Could you imagine a TE like that going down the seam drawing safetys away from DT? We should really think about that. Not Vernon Davis obviously but looking for a really athletic stud TE.

Who would you start Moreno/Murray/Charles/Morris? Can only start two. Defense between giants against falcons or Ravens against broncos. What do you think?

Thanks Guys!!

I'd go w Ryan over Palmer just based on overall rank.

Def agree w Spiller>Moreno>Bush.

I picked up Moreno right away n it saved me last week, started him over Mathews

OK, Brass Tacks:

RB (2) Murray, Moreno, Mathews, Alex Green?

WR (1) Hobbled Nicks, Britt w tough Jets passing D or Antonio Brown?

TE (1) Rudolph, Sheffler or V Davis?

Lotta money riding on this. Ahhh boy.

I look at the guys pulling the trigger. You have Smith and now Kap. And as you said the coaches aren't featuring him.

You add Vernon Davis to Denver, bam.

I just couldn't start Palmer for the playoffs knowing I have Matty Ice. The last Chiefs game Palmer didn't go for a lot of points. And I don't expect a high scoring affair thus affecting Palmer's statistics.

**** Palmer, save the roster spot and go Ryan and be confident about it. FBG has ryan as the 3rd best qb this week where Palmer is ranked 12th. You should feel good about having him as your backup qb.

My problem with Reggie is the touches. They just aren't there. He did all right against the Niners, but no TD. And as mentioned the Dolphins offense is awful. The only reason you would consider playing him is because the Jags are coming to town and Bush had some success last week.

I just like how Moreno gets the touches, which leads to opportunities and thus last week finally scored. Moreno could've had another TD if Franklin didn't blow his block on the goal line. Moreno is the back for Denver. More so than when Willis was carrying the rock. Young, fresh Moreno verus Willis who had to be spelled more(tired and older).
