I had to pick up a QB and TE since Rodgers and Romo were out last week (bye and injuries).  Neither were productive for me.

Anyways, the team that I played (who is still undefeated BTW at 8-0) dropped the Bears D/ST for a position player!   Couldn't believe it!

So even though I have the Titans D/ST, I am still going to try and get the Bears D/ST if i can through waivers and use one or the other in a package deal for trade bait once I do some research (if it even happens).  BTW, if the team in your league who had the Bears D/ST dropped them last week when they had their bye, jump on them NOW!!! Especially if you have first dibs on waivers.  I unfortunately have 9 of 10 (2nd place with a 5-3 record)

I picked up Jeff Carlson and Jeff Garcia, and neither Jeff did much for me at all in week 8.  I got JEFFED in the ARSE!!!  So I am dropping both and will het two of the following off of wwaivers once these transactions go though at 3AM (Bears D/ST, Donnie Avery, Tim Hightower, Cedric Benson, and Jerius Norwood).  

*Two of these players will be on my team in place of Garcia and Carlson.

In other news in case just in case you face/own Kellen Winslow...
MARK MY WORDS...Kellen Winslow will come back this week and score a touchdown OR TWO and have 80 yards against Baltimore.  It's a rivalry, Derek Anderson is starting to hit a groove, and the Browns whooped them TWICE last season.  Neither team is that much different and the Browns are ALL HEALTHY including Stallworth!  Winslow is a gamer with a bit of an attitude problem but he definately leaves it all on the field and he will not be more psyched and pumped up for a game since putting on a Browns uniform! He wants to put an end to ALL of the criticism, skepticism, controversies, and rumors.  Kellen is fine, 100%, and he will BALLLLL on the Ravens this week in my honest openion...
You heard it here first!

I would like to see that even though he was once then man and then others came that shows that he is still the man. Kevin Faulk would be my lucky pick this week.

I picked Donald Lee to fill in the gap at TE, but I'm thinking about Visanthe Shiancoe

Hey Trinidad, I would start Pittman.  Derrick Ward is the Giants third down back and he got more carries in other situations last week against the Steelers because Brandon Jacobs' running style was nopt proving to be effetive against Pittsburgh's style of defense.

Ward will still remain as the third down back, nothing more than that unless they call a special play in a special situation.  He doesn't typically get a lot of touches and because of that he does not have the opputunity to get you points...In my opinoin Ward is nothing more than a second tier flex option or a handcuff for Brandon Jacobs...

On Pittman,  START HIM!!!  The Broncos offense is high powered and Pittman is their declared and bonafide starter as stated by Mike Shanahan (the coach) himself.  

Ryan Torrain may get some carries this week (and if you own Pittman it might not be a bad idea to handcuf Pittman with Torain if you have an extra roster spot in case Pittman goes down or loses his starting gig eventually) but Torain will not take many carries/stats/fantasy points away from Pittmanin my opinion this week!

Thanks, hope I was helpful bro!

Hey Brian_77..   I would stick with Doanald Lee since Rodgers is going to throw the ball more than Freotte (who has A. Peterson as his RB) combined with the fact that the Packers are facing the Titans who put a lot of pressure on opposing QB's meaning you may see a lot of dink and dunks to Lee!
