Just trying to put the pieces together. I can see this working depending on the rosters involved. If someone was really hurting at WR I could see them taking a shot that Martin will perform well enough that getting Jackson put the trade over the top for them.

I would not do this trade if I had decent WRs. I definitely wouldn't do it for a "spot start" player to make up the shortfall from MJD to Martin.

I need to start three receivers in my money league. I have Victor Cruz, Eric Decker, Andre Roberts, Reggie Wayne, and Antonio Brown. Cruz would be the only lock. Who should get the other two spots?

I would think at this point Wayne would also be a lock on a weekly basis. I would go Decker as my third. That game may be a shootout and Decker seems like the main target for Manning.

Who do I start?? Fred Davis (Redskins) vs Atlanta? or Martellus Bennet (Giants) vs the Cleveland?

Davis started out slow, but continues to build a rapport with RG3, and he's been catching more passes every game.

Martellus Bennet started off the first 2 games hot, but has been quiet the last two weeks.

I'd go with the hot hand in Davis. Also, Atlanta's D gave up some good numbers to Greg Olsen TE for the Panthers last week.

Brandon Llyod or Amendola? .5 PPR.

I'd go Amendola. He's 2nd in the NFL in receptions. I have Amendola on my team, and he's been tearing it up for me.

As I Giants fan and a Bennett owner I can say that he stayed into block quite a bit in the second half against the Eagles last week. The Browns don't have nearly the D or pass rush that the Eagles had so it's possible they won't use him to block as much and let Bennett get downfield. G-men also have Barden and Nicks out at WR, so potentially that could lead to more targets for Bennett. Don't know too much on Davis.

Amendola broke his collarbone. I wonder how many player's season I have ruined by drafting them?
