    Default 0-4! AP for a QB?

    Hi all....I'm looking for a discussion on how to try to salvage my season after a disasterous 0-4 start. Long story short, my QB is Vick...who I anticipate will go down to injury at some point. 2 managers in my league want to try to snag Adrian Peterson off of me, but I think the gain that I would realize through an upgrade at QB would be more than offset by the deficit that would be created by trading away my top RB.

    Please take a minute to have a look and give me your thoughts. Our scoring is pretty close to standard, except we use IDPs and team D. Here's my roster:

    1 QB: Vick
    2 WR: D. Thomas, D. Jackson
    2 RB: A. Peterson, D. Murray
    1 TE: B. Pettigrew
    2 Flex (W/T/R) C. Johnson (RB) R. Williams (RB)
    BN: M. Floyd (WR), F. Davis (TE), B. Hartline (WR), K. Britt (WR), M. Crabtree (WR), D. Richardson (RB)

    1 K: Tynes
    1 DEF: San Fran
    2 DB: Woodson, Hall
    2 DL: Peppers, Mathis
    2 LB: Lee, Weatherspoon, Briggs

    My back-up QB was Alex Smith, but I dropped him to pick up Hartline. Best QBs on the waiver wire are Fitzpatrick, Kolb, Cutler, Ponder, Smith.

    1 manager in my league has both Brady and RG3, and he wants AP. Another has already offered me Cam Newton....he's also willing to part with Ryan Matthews for cheap. I thought about this for a while, but I just don't think the upgrade from Vick is significant enough to justify parting with Peterson, especially considering the performance of CJ2K thus far. Still, Vick will get hurt at some point, and I am 0-4.

    Any thoughts?

    I'd hang tight and just roll with a back-up QB.

    Ponder is a good option this week & R-Fitz is a good option in following weeks (I wouldn't start him this week against SF).

    If you part with AP, you are dead in the water.
    You've gotten some bad luck with Chris Johnson - I think you are better off crossing your fingers.

    I don't mind the Mathews and Newton for Ap. but look at Brady maybe offer up Vick and AP for Brady and a RB 2.

    That team looks solid. I'd wait it out a bit like Pengwin suggested. AP is too much to give up and then you'll be sitting with two good QBs and lack of depth at RB. With those flex positions, you want depth at RB.

    Fitzpatrick would be a good pickup. See if the Stafford or Eli Manning owner is frustrated and throw Vick+ at him (I'd be selling Hartline now -- he'll be worth a lot less in a couple weeks).

    I'm guessing that if you sit tight, your record will start turning itself around too.

    I've been looking at this one for a while now, but I'm not really sure what I would do. Vick+AP for Cam+Mathews seems pretty nice as I think Mathews will outperform AP for the rest of the season.

    BUT, I do think getting a top WR will help your team even more. I just got Nicks for my BJGE, so maybe his owner in your league is fed up with him as well?

    My favorite buy lows right now: Trent Richardson, Mathews, SJax, Nicks, Dez Bryant.

    They wont be cheap, but if you can get something like Trent+Nicks for AP+Crabtree you are definitely winning. People treat SJax like his dead, but I actually like what he did last weekend. Nobody has more rushing yards vs Seattle so far this year and he did it in only 18 carries. Sure it is just over 3 YPC, but that defence is good and he looked good. Also got flagged and lost a nice run and a decent run+TD. Not saying he would be your RB1 but if you can get something like Trent+SJax+Nicks for AP+Thomas or something?

    Keep AP.

    Get rid of a WR and add Fitzpatrick. No way he should not be owned. He's the leading passer in TDs. Yeah, he throws picks, but so what b/c his TD and yardages offsets that. Dude is putting up better pts than a lot of QBs who are better than him in real life and should be better in fantasy.

    Besides, he plays the Pats twice and the Jets twice - no Revis. Mia is scaring no one either.
