  1. Would you have a suggestion on how to convince someone who has Eric Decker to trade them for Randall Cobb and Andre Roberts?(Let's pretend Cobb and Roberts don't have Byes this week for the sake of argument.)

    Or would it never happen and it's just a terrible trade?

  2. Well, it comes down to trading the #8 WR (Decker) for #10 (Cobb) and #15 (Roberts), which is a pretty good offer (though Decker has already had his bye). I'd say he gets 1.5-2 starters for 1, and some injury insurance -- meaning there's a better chance that 1 guy will get hurt than 2 of them.

  3. Thanks Mr. Biro, I just discovered your website here and I'm very much liking it. Please keep up the great work.

  4. I'm setting my lineup for this week and have enough room under the cap for Kyle Rudolph or Brandon Myers at tight end; both are around the same price. Can Rudolph get back to early season status or do you think Myers will have another week like last one?
