Do you think Pryor can be a solid QB2 in rotation with Alex Smith/Big Ben? Or am I better off keeping Big Ben/Smith?

Pryor is just a guy to have on hand for streaming purposes, and when the match-up is right, he's a good option. Especially when passing TDs are only worth 4 points. At this point, I think I'd rather have Pryor over Smith in standard leagues. But Pryor could become fantasy useless at any point, he's just not a good real life QB.

I assume your thoughts on Manuel are pretty much identical to your thoughts on Pryor? Or is there bigger upside?

Yeah, you gotta do that 2-for-1 now before Gordon is back. Even if it's a small upgrade somewhere else, do it. Is there any team in your league desperate for WR help? You have a lot of those. If not, you have to drop Smith or Manuel, as you don't really need 4 QBs on your team.

He laughed off the trade, I laughed at his team, lol. Cam is his pride and joy, if he won't take Bush + any combination of Bowe/S. Johnson/Big Ben/even offered Garcon, he probably won't do the package you mentioned. I told him the deal is off the table after this week anyway. I want Gordon now before he returns, that's my only reason for trying to do a 2-for-1.

Yes, I think he has WR2 potential. I tried to get him in all of my drafts this year. I would aim higher than Lacy, if you could. If you could get Cam, that would be a good deal. Parting with Bush would be hard though. Why not offer Bowe or Stevie plus Miller and Big Ben for Cam? Frees up two bench spots for you, and you keep Bush. Packaging for a better QB would be a good course to go, as the rest of your roster is really solid.

Do you think Gordon is a potential WR2 in my group with Fitz, Garcon, S Johnson, and Bowe? I'm thinking of flipping either Bowe/Miller or S. Johnson/Miller for Eddie Lacy. Or should I be shooting for a QB2 and package Big Ben + Johnson/Bowe for someone like Palmer? I sent out a feeler to an owner of Cam Newton, R. Bush + Big Ben for Cam... I doubt he says yes to that, although his RB's are weak and Matt Ryan is his QB2, with Pryor stashed on his bench. Should I make a big play for Newton? How high should I go? Sorry for all the questions, you've helped me out a lot.

Thanks, sorry for the double post. I'll try that.

I would try to work out some sort of 2-for-1 trade that will free up a bench spot. Find a team that is weak at a certain position, and offer them an upgrade and then pick up Gordon. That would be the best solution. You just have too many good players to drop.

Who would you drop for Josh Gordon? Ben Roethlisberger, EJ Manuel, Alex Smith my QB's in QB2 rotation. Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles, Lamar Miller as my FLEX rotation... Pierre Garcon, Dwayne Bowe, Steve Johnson as my WR2 rotation... and Jordan Cameron as my back-up TE... I don't know who I would drop. Lamar Miller maybe? Dwayne Bowe? One of the QB's?

Who would you drop? Big Ben, A. Smith, EJ Manuel... Lamar Miller, Darren Sproles... or Garcon, Steve Johnson, Dwayne Bowe?

Yeah, you have good WR depth. So the lose of Thompkins shouldn't hurt too much. You need to pick up Gordon ASAP. Somehow. No way that guy should be on waivers. That's not a bad strategy to go with the QBs.

I see. Pryor was snatched before I could get him. So I was forced to pick up Manuel. I dropped Kenbrell Thompkins, but I think I'll be OK with Fitz, Garcon, Bowe, and S. Johnson. Plus, Gordon, Hartline, Sanders, V. Brown, Britt, and James Jones are all on waivers, so I'm not sure anyone will pick up Thompkins unless he explodes this week. I'm thinking I will keep EJ, Smith, and Big Ben until week 4, then drop the worst of the bunch for a potential play off waivers.

I like Manuel's long term prospects more this year. But Pryor is the home run threat.
