i was pretty sure steelers wanted Wallace but not for that pricetag - they had limited cap and i know they didn't like his attitude but had they had the money they would have made a competitive offer- not what he got paid but again for w/e he would have been worth as a RFA most likely

Man outside of Fitz my FF WR group is maddening inconsistent is like playing russian roulette trying to see who you start at WR2 or in the flex.

@iycedout I'm still going with 'Miami got him at a discount" vs what Minn offered.

@iycedout right on both counts. they offered wallace more money than brown offer, before they offered brown.

@MIANoleInSWFL Haley and Ben... he has to just hate that offense.  You can really see how much they are missing wallace.

@Bpardo95 bradford

johnson, forte

andre, welker

flex: gio/wallace based on opponent.

@MIANoleInSWFL I wouldn't know what this is like.  I am having issues with who to change out at QB and RB though.

"the steelers didn't even want wallace"

@Bpardo95 @MIANoleInSWFL ditto. running pryor and wilson right now at QB. RB is tough with moreno, ridley, and gore competing for my #2 and flex spot.

@finfan5357 It is a PPR league... I have kept Forte as my keeper 2 years in a row.  It's done well for me.

@finfan5357 @Bpardo95 Someone is trying to knock my team as I sit here 2-0 with the 2nd highest point total in the league.

Try to score more points that the other guy, and focus more on gambling.

@MIANoleInSWFL @iycedout nicks and autin (based on matchup for Austin)

have to play

but nicks has been solid surprisingly and not hurt yet - but Austin has 3 tds and his role should continue growing
