ARGH! I won my game handily. But if I had started Matt Forte over Felix Jones I would have set an all time high score for our league of 214.XX, instead I'll have to settle for the 3rd highest score of all time, 204.XX. The record was broken this year with 211.XX, I was the previous record holder, 3 years ago I had 205.XX. Oh well.

My entire world just came crashing down. Nicks is out for at least 3 weeks which kills BOTH of my fantasy teams and the Giants. Shit.

I'm up 20 now, but my opponent has Orton going tonight against SD. Luckily, I've got a pair of receivers to add insurance, but who's the better pick?

Gaffney vs Crayton

I'm starting Crayton. Naanee and Gates are out and I figured Bailey will lock up Floyd so Crayton will be the number 1 target for Rivers tonight.

With my 3 best scoring players (Bradshaw, Mendenhall, and Orton) not playing well at all, I was glad to see my two receivers carry my team (Jennings and Colston). I keep my streak alive that started after the week I lost Clayton, Finley, and Collie in one week.

Now, I hope based on this past week that NY continues to run with Bradshaw.

Not now that Portis is on IR.

Which brings me to this weeks question. PPR League. Pick 2 with at least 1 RB.

K Williams vs Min
Forte vs Philly
Breaston vs SF
H Ward @ Buf
F Jackson vs Pit


I'm starting Gore, Bowe & Vincent Jackson. Breaston & Forte are currently slotted.

I'd say keep Forte in there, replace Breaston with Ward.

We have similar teams, I'll also be starting Gore, Bowe, and Jackson this week.

However I am debating between V. Jackson and Forte for my flex. My gut says Jackson comes out big his first week back, so he is in the slot right now.

Hold up on VJax. As far as we know he could get absolutely zero snaps out of spite. I won't play him until I see something.

I'd play Williams against the Vikes piss poor run D. Breaston and Ward in VJax's place - then again, watch VJax blow up.

No way. SD can't afford to play any games with all the injuries they have on offense. I also have Floyd but his hammy flared up on Monday & Crayton went down.
Combine all that with a matchup vs Indy & I think VJax is a must start this week. He's had a few weeks of practice so rust shouldn't be much of a factor.

I must disagree with this. SD has played phenomenally in the past weeks with injuries to Naanee, Floyd, Mathews, Davis, and Gates. Rivers is playing better than Manning, and that's saying something (Manning has been known to turn 3rd stringers into must starts).

That said, you're correct in implying VJax is not coming back from injury, but this is an organization that was willing to let him sit the entire season and not trade him. It's very possible they could sit him just to hurt his FA status this off-season. If I'm wrong and he blows up, then you know. If he pulls a Randy Moss, then you've dropped a goose egg in your WR slot.

Of course it comes to crunch time and my RB gets demoted (Bradshaw) after being the 5th leading rusher in the league... screw NY.

I still think it is better to start him than my backup (Marshawn Lynch). Is that a wise move? The best thing in the waiver wire is Donald Brown but he splits carries with James.

Stupid Sanchez. I figured he'd be the lesser of 3 evils (Sanchez, Kitna, or Fitzpatrick). Starting to look like they might have been equal evils.

No reason at all for you to be carrying Palmer & I'd try to trade Sanchez for help at WR or RB. Rodgers is matchup proof.

I should win my matchup in the money league. Down by 3, but I have Reggie Wayne, so a TD or 40 yards, and I'm good. If he only scores 3 points, I still have a good chance since I have Gates on my bench. Even if I didn't, Steve Breaston (his bench) would still have to score 15 points, just for a tie.

Yup, Peyton Hillis scored for me just under half of what my opponent's team is going to finish with. Looks like I'm going to 12-0 this week with a 174-100 or so victory.

I should have known VJax & Rivers would bone me after Bowe trumped Hillis.

I still trail by 12 but he only has Feely left while I have Gore & Breaston. I should be fine but it's still annoying when a W should already be in the bag.
