haha. thats real good. I've seen some other Martin trades that people have posted - Martin for H.Miller, Martin for Bradshaw, Martin for Hartline, etc. etc.

Who are the people making these trades and why are they allowed to play fantasy football?

To tell the entire truth I gave up Turner & Haywood Bay and got Martin and Bell (RB - Detroit) Bell is in for DMC and the guy cut DHB

Martin or TRich?

Why would u not start martin???

TouchdownBundy Aug 13 '78

can't start both? TRich is getting in the endzone every week now except for the week he was pulled at halftime. I think both are going to do well this week but if I had to choose one, I'd go with Martin. I'd be interested to see who you're starting in front of these two, must have AP or Foster I'd guess.

yikes. I saw you started Mathews over one of these guys. Woulda went Foster, Martin, TRich.

Why would Adrian Peterson be in second place for Rookie of the Month?

reread that sentence. Martin led the NFL with 155.7 yards from scrimmage. It does not say he led rookies. Martin was rookie of the month and the reason why is because he led the NFL in yards.

Since the second paragraph jumps from "rookie" to "led the NFL" - I think it is safe to assume they mean the entire NFL.
