I knew when I drafted so many Saints that week 6 was going to be interesting. Now that it's here I don't really know how to progress from here. My line up is really week and I don't really know what to do to fix it. Here are a few questions I have. First should I be looking for another QB or is Smith a good bet? Here are a few other options at QB:

Brandon Weeden

Ryan Tannehill

Jake Locker

Blaine Gabbert



I am also worried about starting Simpson and C.J. Spiller. Simpson got zero last week and Spiller was also unimpressive. Should I stick with them or pick up someone else? Also I got Jennings starting right now even though there is probably 0 chance he will play. Here are a few of the top options I have avaiable.

RB:

Brandon Bolden

Doug Martin

Kendall Hunter

Joique Bell

Jonathan Stewart

Jacquizz Rodgers



WR:

Jeremy Kerley

Kendall Wright

Josh Gordon

Brandon Stokley

Leonard Hankson

Robert Meachem (am I really that desperate)

T.Y. Hilton

Greg Little



I know I need to do something b/c Jenning isn't even starting the question I am having is how much should I change? Thanks for all ya'lls help!

As of right now I was thinking about putting these waiver requests in

Drop J. Simpson for R. Meachem (I am hoping that they target him more since he did pretty good against the Saints)

Drop M. Ingram for A. Green (He is going to start since Benson is out if I am not mistaken)

I would still have to start Spiller but who knows maybe he will get a break out run.

I would start Simpson (provided that he is healthy) vs Washington over Meachem. Just don't trust Meachem. Dropping Ingram for A Green works fo rme. Spiller still has a high upside and I would hang onto him.

This is the reason I am shying away from starting Simpson:

"Simpson's MRI revealed a back issue that was causing his leg weakness/numbness Sunday, the Star Tribune's Dan Wiederer reports.

Analysis: Simpson will undergo further testing Tuesday to determine the specifics/severity of the back problem. Nothing's certain, but Simpson's availability for Sunday's game against the Redskins doesn't look promising"

Had not seen that injury report. Thanks. I was hoping that Meachem would be more consistent with the Chargers since he didn't have as many "wepaons" to compete for targets, but it just appears that he is an inconsistent receiver. Much like Devery Henderson his former teammate.

Yea I had high hopes for Meachem as well. I always liked him on the Saints but he wasn't featured as much. I actually drafted Meachem originally hoping that he would flourish at San Diego and dropped him week 3.

I'd keep Smith. Locker is listed as out this week, Weeden is an average QB on a bad team, and St. Louis defense is coming around so not really liking Tannehill, and Gabbert is also on a bye this week.

I kept Smith and got my waiver requests. So I guess my team looks slightly better but I am still not feeling good about this week. :(
