Welcome to the first bye week of the season. I presume many of you are here for some bye week assistance and advice on who could be a nice plug-in from the waiver wire. I've posted some of the early waiver wire suggestions on both Monday and Tuesday of this week, but there are just so many out there - so read on for more waiver and start or sit sites:

I thought I was getting a steal with Larry Johnson at #5. So far I guessed wrong. I have Edg and APeterson so am OK with RBs, but am WR-weak. What caliber WR should I expect for LJ in a trade at this point in the season?
Tough question without knowing more details; I think trades can be very subjective based on what you need and what the person you're trading with needs. It always helps to know who is on your team. And how clued in the other person is to the world of FF. LJ is a big name and I would think you could at least get a low-end WR1 from him. Many people are probably banking on the fact that he will have better production as the year goes on...I'm still not convinced of this but you never know. Since so many WRs have put up big numbers this year (especially compared to RBs), I think players might be more willing to part with a higher ranked WR than normal. I mean if Kevin Curtis is going to emerge as a big star (pure conjecture at this point), do you need your Donald Driver or Reggie Wayne quite so much? Speaking of Reggie Wayne, I'd be interested in seeing if you could pull a trade for LJ and either Wayne or Marvin Harrison. Those Colts receivers have been relatively quiet so far and could be nice trade material for you.
I personally wouldn't trade LJ for a WR lower than a low-end WR1; I'm sure others have different opinions and again, it's so hard to say without knowing your exact situation.

As for the flex player, I'd go with Lynch. Normally I think a QB is primed for more points (esp in a 6 point TD league) and I think that Eli has a decent matchup this week...but the Jets are easy against the run and with the before mentioned new Buffalo QB, the Bills offense might need to lean on Lynch a little more this week.
Hope that helps - good luck.
