    Winston has been such a disappointment, I think McCown can lead me to the title, I got a lot of balance on this roster outside of QB. If Bryant starts balling, then WATCH OUT.

    Going with mccown and not giving a younger qb a chance is going to ruin your fantasy team in the long run.

    Seriously, you can probably get by with him. Deep squad

    ahahaha, its funny you said that cause one of the reasons I made this topic is because, someone offered me Carson Wentz for Melvin Gordon. I don't think I am going to take it. It's also a dynasty league, so perhaps I will revisit the trade in the off-season ...

    Or maybe Winston actually eats that W and becomes a straight beast

    I've had a combination of Winston and Carson Palmer at QB over my past 4 games... I have a combined 12 points from my QB position over that stretch. Fucking brutal.

    On topic, McCown should be serviceable since the rest of your team is pretty solid. The Wentz offer is interesting though. I have Lamar Miller as my RB 1 and while he isn't spectacular he's usually good for at least 10 points a game. I think you may be able to afford dealing Gordon for a significant QB upgrade.

    Side note, goddamn your bench is huge! I get three bench slots (14 team league)!

    ouch ... you should pick up a Jacoby Brissett from the Colts if he's available ... I started him a few times this year and he got me like 15-20 pts

    I’m in a 16 team league with 5 bench spots. It is slim pickings on the waiver wire.

    There are far too many bench spots as it appears FJF has the same issue, but the waiver wire is where champions are born!

    I'm down to McCown myself, but pretty much of the running now haha. Had David Johnson as first pick, IR. Aaron Rodgers as QB, IR... Traded Gronk away for Deshaun Watson to fill the gap, IR... Ty Montgomery, broken ribs. I don't think my team ever had a chance with that run of luck.

    I'm hoping my makeshift team of McCown, Robbie Anderson, ASJ, and AP can keep me in contention, but it's a long shot.

    I actually grabbed Roethlisberger on waivers this week and dropped Winston. Hopefully that settles things.

    I think you could probably do a lot more with a better RB2 and RB3/Flex But I was the only one who knew how to draft in my league so I got lucky.

    Kenyan Drake is okay. McCown will win you a few games this year

    McCown, as my QB we clinched a playoff spot. Winston is back, but I think I might roll with McCown the rest of the season.

    He had a great game against Denver yesterday.
