Adrian Peterson was the consensus #1 player in all of fantasy football. He'll likely finish best at his position. Gronk has the same potential post-injury to finish over Jimmy at TE in the rankings. Jimmy is more valuable in PPR formats, but Gronk is a TD machine and Brady needs him badly.
McFadden is always an injury concern. Finley is inconsistent. Megatron is the only sure thing. I want the two studs, Peterson and Gronk, over one stud and two question marks.

Auto-drafted. Rodgers was my homer/1st round pick. RB's are crap, I know. Which of the 2 TE should I try and trade and what should I be looking for? I'm 1-1 after tonight.
PPR or standard? You have to move Gronk or Jimmy for a true RB1.
Jimmy is a sure thing every week and more coveted. Gronk is returning from injury.
I would offer Jimmy for an elite RB1. Shady, Dougie, Beast Mode, Spiller, Trent.
Move Rivers ASAP while his stock is soaring. He has no value sitting behind Rodgers. You'll never start Rivers over Rodgers.

Hold onto Gio, man. He's a stud. Law Firm's days are numbered.
I'd keep Nuk (and Tavon to a lesser extent) if it's a keeper league.
I would move Edelman first. His value is highest now especially in PPR formats. Gronk is returning soon. Thompkins and Dobson will get more comfortable meaning more targets and receptions potentially.
James Jones is the second player I'd move. He seems to be conceding receptions to Cobb and TD's to Jordy.

Also purposed a trade...MJD for Mendenhall. =\
You'll be fine once Roddy fully recovers from the high ankle sprain.
I would have kept MJD because he's not trading well in terms of value related to ADP. Mendy's not terrible return, I suppose.
Don't start Roddy this week until he gets full, normal reps. Otherwise he's just a decoy for Julio and Gonzo.

You likely won't get Megatron, that was more of a pipe dream suggestion preying on a weak owner. Demaryius is a possibility.

What trades would you maybe look for if you had my team, or would you keep it as is?
Minor tweak would be acquiring a stud at WR2. Target someone like Roddy while he's "injured" and cheap. Or James Jones, Edelman for Cruz.

The only factor that I consider to be a problem for them this week is lack of time. The Eagles got a short week for the second consecutive week in a row (MNF -> Sunday -> TNF)
Kansas City's defense is legit. I'd consider benching MV7. What is your other option?

Minnesota defense easily. Cleveland's only hope is Trent, Cameron, and Gordon. The QB position a huge question mark. Frazier is a defensive minded HC.

Everyone will be putting in a waiver request for Royal, Moreno, and Starks.
Add him. Who can you drop for Royal?

I see Eifert sitting there as well
Dropped the Panthers defense for the Broncos defense and I have bucs defense on my bench.
Eifert has tremendous long-term value later in the season. He's better than Gresham.
Denver's defense is an extremely safe play against Oakland on MNF. Containing Pryor is the only threat.
I would start Luck, but I worry about the decreased pass pro from Ballard. I see SF blowing out Indy with emotion after getting romped by Seattle. But that's a good thing potentially for fantasy. If Colts are down two tubs, Luck will be airing it out to catch up. He has the weapons in Allen, Fleener, Wayne, Hilton. Bradshaw is a decent running option, but Indy will air it out.

I agree that Freeman is a liability and has to be moved. Palmer is a decent buy low option.
However, I don't like including Ridley. He's a legitimate RB2 despite the two poor performances to open the season. Richardson isn't quite enough return. I'd either ask for a better back than Richardson or substitute Ridley for another back from your squad.

PPR format? I'm asking because that impacts Bell's value.
I'd ask for a Filler WR just to acquire maximum value from the deal.
You're doing well to acquire MJD at a buy low price point. Bell is surplus for you (Detroit) once the Pittsburgh Bell returns, which could be Sunday Night against Chicago.
Stevie is Buffalo's best WR option, but you expect growing pains with a rookie Q.
Good overall offer. I'd accept.

Smitty all the way. I wouldn't even consider Edelman in the Flex unless it's PPR this week. Tampa's defense played their heart out against New Orleans, and they have better playmakers than New England. Someone is drawing Revis and it's likely Edelman with Amendola out.
NYG's defense has proven vulnerable against Dallas and Denver.

I dont need 3 QBs and outside of WIlson, none of those dudes have any trade value. I'm thinking about dropping Pryor or Roethlisberger for Ryan Tannehill, since he is the top QB on my waiver wire
Tanny was my sleeper QB (third QB) in my two start QB league. Miami is on the cusp of something special. Tanny linked up well with Wallace in W2.
I'm 90% ready to drop Ben for Tanny. Haley and Ben have a disconnect. The offensive line is miserable. The running attack won't be improved until Bell is back and healthy.

Stevie Johnson at Jets
Dwayne Bowe at Philly
I need two starters, help guys...
I also have Jamaal Charles idk if that is worth noting
Sit Roddy until he's fully healthy and getting normal, full reps.
Wallace should play. He connected well with Tanny in W2. Philbin heard Wallace's request for the football loud and clear. I'd also start Bowe over Stevie. He can beat Cary Williams and Boykin. Philly was carved by lesser receivers from San Diego.

He countered with my Vick and CJ for Brady, Ridley and BGE. I would pull the trigger if I could offer him one of my lesser RBs (also have Sjax RB2, Lacy, and Woodhead)
Or if I could get a better RB (he has Marshawn, Ridley, BGE, and Shonn Green). But I doubt he'll want to trade Marshawn.
Law Firm is worthless to trade for. Gio is here and he's not going away.
I'd offer to give away Vick, S-Jax, Lacy for Brady, Beast Mode.

How y'all feel about Miles Austin? Last week was disappointing and I'm considering starting someone else in my flex instead of him. Thinking about Andre Roberts, Joique Bell or Moreno if I land him on waivers. Jordy and Megatron are my WR 1 and 2.
Miles let me down so bad in W2. I know Kansas City has a good defense, but I thought the attention on Dezzy and Witten would benefit Miles. I'd start Moreno over Miles if you land him. He's real. Did this last year to close the season. Ball fumbled in the RZ. Hillman got one carry. Oakland is a sheep. If Denver runs up the score, they'll pound the rock to close the game with Moreno.

Miller. Carolina's front seven is stout. Miller got a tub in W2 and Miami trusted him to close out the game with carries. Wilson's pass pro is slightly improving, but the fumbling issue is still alarming.
Cameron is a must start every week. He's Cleveland's best receiving option. Big, live target. Chud and Norv utilize the TE everywhere they go.
I would say Carolina's defense has the slight edge, but their secondary can be exposed by Eli, Cruz, Nicks.
