Need some advice on my fantasy team. Kicking myself after I made this pick, however it came down to the wire and I thought it was a good bargain grab for Welker when I got him, instead of taking Pitta.

 

Should I trade Cordalle Paterson & Antonio Gates for Pitta and Kelvin Benjamin?

 

My Team (10 person):

 

QB- Nick Foles

WR- Julio Jones

WR- Cordalle Patterson

RB- Matt Forte

RB- Arian Foster

WR/TE- Rob Gronkoski

 

Bench

C. Johnson

B. Cooks

M. Jones

A. Gates

M. Wheaton

I would not make that trade.  I wouldn't want any part of Benjamin this year.  He is a raw rookie.  yes Pitta could be a bit of an upgrade over Gates.  While I am not the biggest fan of Patterson, he has a lot higher ceiling than Benjamin this year and lower floor.  What was your point about Welker?  Is he on your team as well?

Don't make that trade. You have Gronk, and it he plays, no need for Pitta

Yeah, Benjamin is probably Carolina's WR1 and apparently had a nice preseason, but I see his (honestly kinda optimistic) ceiling as a Demariyus Thomas lite and his floor as more like a Greg Little, Stephen Hill or Jon Baldwin. And that ceiling will take time to reach, so if you're not in a keeper league I wouldn't touch that trade.

 

Welker should still be solid this year. If anything though, I'd be looking for RBs. Foster and Forte are both a bit sketchy because of age and injuries imo - not bad guys to have but depending on your scoring system, will probably need to have guys on the bench in case they get dinged up.

Who should I start at flex?

QB: Nick Foles (vs Jax)

WR: Calvin Johnson (vs NYG)

WR:Brandon Marshall (vs Buffalo) 

WR: DeMaryius Thomas (vs Indy)

RB: Alfred Morris (@ Hou)

RB: Doug Martin (vs Panthers)

TE: Jason Witten (vs SF)

Flex:???

Options:
Marques Colston (WR) (@ ATL), Andre Ellington (RB) (vs San Diego)

 

Would you make any other changes?

Bench:

Fred Jackson, RB (@ CHI) | Kelvin Benjamin, WR (@ TB) | Cecil Shorts, WR (@ PHI) | Greg Jennings, WR (@ STL) | Martellus Bennett, TE (vs Buffalo) | Mark Ingram, RB (@ ATL) | Jared Cook, TE (vs MIN) | Andrew Hawkins, WR (@ PIT) | Tim Wright, TE (@ Miami) | Andy Dalton, QB (@ Bal)

 

Please let me know what I should do, I am most torn at the flex spot

You have several good options but I TBI k I would go with colston against what looks to be a poor Atlanta D. I assume Dalton is not an option?

No, flex is W/R/T

I think it boils down to Colston or Ellington, but seeing as Atlanta has a poor LB core I feel Graham and Cooks will see the ball more.

Graham is going to get his regardless. Colston will be Bree's next target.

Has to be roddy. He's the for sure number one tRget in a good offense. The others are a bit cloudy for a week one start.

Ya I was debating between him and Golden Tate, going to go with Roddy White since I was leaning towards him. Thanks for the advice!

The Giants actually have a very legit secondary and it still remains to be seen if anyone can honestly compete with Megatron to assert themselves as a viable fantasy threat across from him.

Should i start Tom Brady Week 1 over Matthew Stafford? Stafford is projected to get more points but I feel Brady is gonna light up Miami.

I like Stafford because of the matchups. Miami has a pretty strong defense that gets after the QB. NYG not so much.

But the Giants went all out to revamp their secondary and were pretty good with Amukamara and Trumaine McBride before. But then again, Brady doesn't do very well against the Dolphins historically. The second time he faced them last year was probably one of the stronger games he's ever had against him, with the first probably being not so unusual.
