I have three questions:

1) I need to pick up a defense this week. Which one should I pick up? (see below, I will be dropping Ryan Williams). Should I be putting in a waiver claim here (I currently have #5)?

Here are my available options for DT:
Tampa - vs KC (@Tampa)
Indy - vs JETS (@Jets)
Cleveland - vs Cincy (@Cleveland)
SD - vs Denver (@ SD)
Buffalo - vs Arizona (@ Arizona)
Detroit - vs Philly (@ PHilly)
Tennessee - vs Pitt (@Tennessee)
Cincy - vs Cleveland (@Cleveland)
KC - vs TB (@TB)
Denver - vs SD (@ SD)
Washington - vs Minny (@Washington)
Oakland - vs Atlanta (@ Atlanta)

2) Should I pick up any of the following RB options (and if more than one, in what order), and who should I drop?
Should I be putting in a waiver claim here (I currently have #5)?

William Powel
Alex Green
James Starks
Larod Stephens-Howling
Kendall Hunter
David Wilson
Beanie Wells

3) If you said YES to using my waiver claim for both the defense and RB, which order should I use them? Thanks in advance for your help!

1) Denver; no need for a waiver claim on a defensive stream

2) Howling/Hunter/Green/Starks/Wilson/Powell/Wells

3) Could see using a waiver on the RB; #5 isn't extremely high.

Missed that part. Probably wouldn't personally sit on 3 QBs in a 1 QB league but I'd have a hard time dropping any of them either. Don't think you need to make a move if those are your drop choices.

Agreed. I don't like holding onto three QBs, but really Romo hasn't played well this year so having two other choices is good. Also, if I drop either Flacco and/or Dalton now, the other teams in need of a QB (for the bye weeks) will get a good one and I really don't want to help them. :-)

Thanks for the advice.

Denver and Tampa were both claimed on waivers.

Who's next on the DT list to pick up?

Guess you could try Cincy. Not a good looking lot.

Ok. Last question on this subject, I picked up Ballard this afternoon since Brown went down (dropped Willaism for him).

Question: Who do I drop to pick up my DEF? (Ballard, one of my QBs?)

My Team:

QB = Joe Flacco
RB = Alfred Morris
RB = Stevan Ridley
WR = Steve Smith
WR = Larry Fitzgerald
TE = Rob Gonkowski
FLEX = Mikel Leshoure
K = Jason Hanson
DEF = Chicago Bears

BN = Vick Ballard
BN= Hakeem Nicks
BN = Andy Dalton
BN = Jonathan Stewart
BN = Tony Romo

Wasn't your original intention to pick up a DEF because you were dropping Williams? We've already kinda covered if you're not willing to drop any of those QBs for obvious reasons, you don't have anyone else to drop except for your DEF and I'm sure you don't want to do that. Go with your original plan so you can have a DEF for the week.
