    I need some roster help for week 9.

    At QB Should I play Ben Roethlisberger or Kyle Orton?

    My two starting WR are Wayne and Austin, I need a 3rd WR. Mike Williams(SEA), Deion Branch or Jacoby Jones?

    Thanks for you input from NE Ohio.

  2. Opps I meant week 8 not week 9.

    NE Ohio

  3. Ladd,
    Need your help. I need to play two WR's between Andre Johnson, Greg Jennings, Brandon Lloyd and Hines Ward. I also need two RB's between Chris Ivory, Brandon Jackson and Ryan Matthews. Whadaya say?

  4. Ladd,
    I'm looking to climb out of the bottom and need a win. Whom shall I play?
    WR #3 L Evans or D Bess?
    RB# 2 C Benson or K Moreno?


  5. need 2 WR:

    B. Edwards, M. Wallace (T.B.), L. Moore, M. Crabtree, L. Evans

  6. Anonymous,

    Go with Orton and Williams.

  7. Anonymous (#2),

    Go with AJ and Lloyd. Don't like any of your RBs, sorry. BJax, I guess, and pick your poison on the other.

  8. Anonymous (#3),

    In a PPR league, go with Bess. Otherwise, Evans. And Benson at RB.

  9. Seth,

    First off, do you mean Wallace from PIT or Williams from TB?

    I'd go with Wallace from PIT and Moore.
