So I had the misfortune of starting both Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers' defense this past week. That's the last time I put my faith in the Steelers! How long should I give them before I dump the bums?

I have got a similar dilemma with Chris Johnson

I assume last week was basically a bad week for C2K but this week he plays Baltimore.
Right now I consider Starting Sproles vs. Chi instead, but I might be overreacting a bit.

MJK give the steelers time, the defense is fine, and Ben is solid but not great.

Kulko, the saints running backs aren't going to be consistent, they have too many weapons, stick with CJ in the tough matchup.

Non-ppr: WR3 this week? Manningham (vs Rams with Eli in a funk) or Burleson (vs KC with Stafford looking good)

I thought for sure Jared Cook was going to go off and failed to draft another TE. Which waiver wire wonder would you recommend:

Ben Watson (CLE)
Evan Moore (CLE)
Scott Chandler (BUF)
Ed Dickson (BAL)
Lance Kendricks (STL)

Or should I just commit seppuku?

I wouldn't expect Moore and Chandler to be effective for long. Neither really gets a lot of passes, I think they were just lucky. I'd try Ed Dickson.
