So I am starting to panic a little because if I lose I am out. I am in a standard league and my roster is :

QB EJ Manuel
QB Fitzpatrick
QB McCown
RB Jamal Charles
RB Lacy
RB Le'von Bell
RB Gio Bernard
RB Zac Stacy
WR Welker
WR Keenan Allen
WR Harvin
TE Jordan Reed
K Gano
Def KC
Def Miami

We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF and 1 Flex (RB/WR). Would you drop Fitz to pick up Carson Palmer? The only thing is a lot of people think McCown is a sure thing to be a great play this week...whenever I hear that it makes me a little nervous. With Chicago's bad run defense I would not be surprised to see the Vikings win. That's why playing Fitz over him might make sense? Would the Browns or Giants defense be better than what I have for this week? Should I keep Gano or pick up Feely, Succop, Dawson instead?

I would grab Palmer and drop Manuel unless he is next years keeper.

I start McCown this week over Fitz. Palmer plays good at home but sometimes struggles on the road. The matchup is with McCown. Escpecially if Forte does not play.

Philly is playing better defensively as of late. So don't think Palmer is a shoe in for a big day.

All of those defenses don't impress me for this week. But Geno Smith throws int's every week so I think I might stick with Miami. The Browns would be my second pick.

McCowan gets the start and I drop Manual for Cutler if he is on the ww. Palmers ros schedule after this week gets tough and the Bears have the best ROS schedule for qb's.

Fitz has a good ros schedule also. I like the Browns D slightly better this week, but the fish are a good play.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D
