    #12 Jersey

    QB - Drew Brees
    RB - Ray Rice
    RB - Mark Ingram
    R/W - Jackie Battle
    WR - Darrius Heyward-Bey
    WR - Greg Little
    WR - Eric Decker
    TE - Jimmy Graham
    W/T - Jermichael Finley
    K - Novak
    D/ST - Jets

    BENCH
    James Starks
    Damian Williams
    Felix Jones
    Carson Palmer
    Josh Freeman

    So when the news broke about Carson I dropped Mike Thomas & added Palmer. Even though Thomas is generally considered a PPR dream his production has gone way down with Gabbert under center. My hope was to parlay Palmer or Freeman in a deal, but no bites yet. In week 8 the Jets, Packers & Raiders are off so I will be without a D & W/T. With both Palmer & Freeman off there trade value will be even more limited so do I just drop them? Would you drop Starks? Felix should be back in a few weeks and his fantasy playoff matchups make it hard to drop him. If Damian puts up a stinker he would be on the chopping block but I have to start 3 WRs. lol

    carrying 3 QBs is definitely killing you. You best bet would be to cut one loose. I seriously doubt that you'll get anything for Palmer. If your lucky, you might and I stress might, be able to get a #3/4 WR but with teams able to start 5 WR in your league, they are probably pricey.
