Yeah I noticed that too! Colston did have some big drops that could've made his night even bigger.

Colston was a beast, I think Graham's injury helped since he was nothing more than a decoy for the 2nd half (and he killed my fantasy team too, but that's another story).

Hey guys, need advice. I need a 1 week QB pick up while Brees is on a bye week. I'm literally picking him up for one week and them dumping them.

Is Christian Ponder against a TERRIBLE redskins defense this Sunday a good idea???

That is not a bad choice for a fill in.

Depends on what other QBs are available.

Help guys. I need to make a decision fast. A guy has offered me a trade, and I need a receiver. He's willing to give me either Percy Harvin or Demarius Thomas. Which one should I take???

IMO, Harvin's the better NFL player while Thomas is a better FF player. They're both the preferred targets for their respective QBs but I have more faith in Manning than I do Ponder. Denver also has a pretty soft schedule with games against: CIN, NO, TB, OAK, KC(2x), CLE while Minnesota has to play CHI(2x), AZ, SEA, HOU. Watch Thomas' fumble-itis, though, he lost 3 already this season.

thanks for the detailed breakdown, Jay. I agree that Harvin is the better overal player. I've also taken notice of DT's fumbles, which my league penalizes heavily for. Percy Harvin also has the kick return game, which adds to his value. Kinda torn here.

@ Orange, nope, its not a PPR leage. 1 point for every 15 yards receiving, and 6 points for TDs. Then there are bonuses for the 100+ yards total, 125+ total yard, 150+ yards total, etc.

If your league awards points for return yards and TDs then Harvin might be the one to get. In my league, return TDs are awarded to the Def/ST, not the individual player.
