Really CJ? Are we going to do this all over again? Good thing everyone else crushed it today. I'm up 152-88 right now and still have Wallace going. Scoring over 110 in my league is usually good for a win so I'm liking my team so far.

Holy bananas what kind of crazy scoring system is this?!?! Do you get 35 points for every TD? I have Ahmad Bradshaw on my team and he scored 15.3 points (terrible game but he managed a TD) but he got 34.3 points for you. That is nuts. Matthew Stafford alone would have outscored 6 teams in my league so far!

Yeah it's definitely a unique scoring system the guy uses.

Pass Attempt:1 point
Pass Completion: 1 point
Pass Incompletion: -1 point
1 point per 10 yards passing/rushing/receiving
6 points TD
1 point per rushing attempt
PPR

Bonus points for 300 yards and 400 yards passing and 100 and 200 yards rushing/receiving. Also bonus points for a 40+ yard plays.

Holy hell my running backs sucked in every league this week. Deangelo Williams, Richardson, Hillis, Jennings, Fred Jackson. Of course I had CJ Spiller on the bench. Thankfully I also had Julio Jones and Reggie Wayne on that team combine for 60 points to give me the highest for the week (which is funny because people kept saying having no RBs would hold me back).

Another league I won 58-58 because my bench outscored his by 3. Both our teams sucked terribly, it was glorious.

Lost the ESPN league, but that was my freebie, so that one doesn't matter so much. :razz:

Edit: Actually, will probably lose the tied game. I didn't realize at the time of my post my opponent still had Boldin on the bench.

Would you guys do any 2 combo of Rashad Jennings/Peyton Hillis/Beanie Wells/Robert Turbin for Vernon Davis?

My three RBs today only gave me 23 points. Just bad all around.

I'd give away Jennings and either Hillis or Turbin for Davis. While Beanie may suck, he will always get touches.

As a Niner's fan, I love me some Gore. That said, Jacobs is going to leach the Hell out of Gore's touches. Especially with Harbaugh suggesting going easy on Gore this year. Brown I think is the man this week. With no Tolbert, I'm not sure who else to trust there.

For me, I'd go Tate/Brown.


You'd think as a Niner fan you'd know Jacobs was going to be out yesterday lol

Even so, Jacobs couldn't rush for 4 yards with a 5 yard head start. Overrated.

Absolutely keep CJ Spiller. I haven't read the reports yet, but Fred Jackson will miss time after that nasty collision.

You should know about the Mike Shanahan RB carousel by now.

You only have 3 running backs? Without knowing the rest of your team, CJ Spiller is worth keeping right now. He went off yesterday, and Fred Jackson is getting an MRI and I'd expect him to get the bulk of the carries next week regardless of Jackson's health.

In my one league, I decided to cut Deangelo Williams and pick up Alfred Morris though. You perform that poorly and you play against some high scoring offenses the next couple weeks? Yeah, I don't expect you to be of much value right now.

yeah we can only have 3 rbs total between bench and the one start and one flex. i got tony romo as qb with smith as a back-up. ray rice and murray as my two starters and spiller on bench. my 4 wrs are lacking tho, i have garcon, bowe, michael floyd, and steve smith off the rams. trying to waiver wire the jets wr that did really well to get on my bench and i already put in a claim for ogletree.

What do you guys think about starting Torrey Smith over AJ Green? I am down by 33.5. He is done and I also have DMC and it's also half ppr.

I am thinking about doing it, Smith is facing one of the worst set of cb and saftey in the league. Looks like he now can be an all in one wr, not just a burner. On the other hand AJ is going to get a lot of targets, they have nobody else, but its the Raven's def. They are good in the secondary.

Any serious opinions?

Black Ops SUCKS!!!

AJ Green is the third best WR in the NFL while Torrey Smith is boom or bust. I wouldn't do it.

I think Green and DMC definitely get you 34 points.

I would drop smith for Ogletree I guess because he could become this season's Laurent Robinson but I wouldn't hang my hat on it,, I would keep Floyd.

Haha - Jacobs was the one player on the Giants over the last few years that I really couldn't stand. You know how you always love the guys on your team even though everyone else hates them (see: Shockey)? Well, I just couldn't stand Jacobs. He had his moments but his skills deteriorated a ton over the last 2 seasons. However, he just can't keep his mouth shut I just never liked his attitude. Hey 49ers, enjoy those 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalties.

The guy is really a legend in his own mind. I thought he could be a decent back early in his career but the more I saw of him (and heard) the more I loved to watch him fail.

The little kid that sent him $3.36 to stay with the Giants was overpaying by about $3.25.

A great example of why sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Matthews was going to be inactive, so I had to start Michael Bush. He only gets 42 yards backing up Forte, but falls into the endzone twice on 1-yard TDs.

Anyone in a Yahoo! league? They added "Recaps" this year and they are awesome. They are stat and match-up summaries and they are really specific to what happened for that week. Good stuff.
