I have Charles in two leagues. Started him in one and sat him in the other. So not all bad.

Oh, that'll make you sick to your stomach to see. Hopefully you still won at least to take most of the sting away!

I started Jamaal Charles! I kicked butt in my Fantasy league this week! I also have Tom Brady and the Falcons defense.

Welp, I'm starting to get to the point where I might have to pull Brees. He's been okay thus far, but I've got Matty Ryan on my bench and he's outscored Brees every single week. Drew Brees puts up big numbers, but my league penalizes pretty heavy for interceptions and yards lost on sacks, so he's been shooting himself in the foot for my fantasy.

I keep telling myself "the saints and brees will get it together. But he keeps throwing interceptions, and he keeps getting sacked. Meanwhile, Matt Ryan continues to light it up.

Brees was the #1 rated QB by most fantasy mock drafts, and lucking out with the first pick, I snagged him immediately. But I might actually pull Brees or put him up for trade and just stick with matt Ryan. I definitely didn't think I'd be considering benching Brees 3 weeks into the season..

Just the thought of benching Brees is crazy but it is reality with how those two players are trending. Fantasy football definitely is a "what have you done for me lately" type deal so you gotta play the hot hand. Brees will get it turned around but in the meantime you are set with Matty Ice so that's nice.

I'd wait until Brees turned the corner and then trade as right now you won't get anywhere near what you should for what I consider the 2nd best QB in the league (behind Rodgers).

Yeah, I agree with playing the hot hand. I'm hoping Brees can eventually turn it around though. Even though he lit them up last year, Brees is going against the #1 pass defense in the NFL in Green Bay this weekend.
