I normally don't need to ask but....

PICK 2:
BenJarvus Green-Ellis [vs. Cle]
Trent Richardson [@ Cin]
Alfred Morris [vs. StL]

I'm thinking BGE & T-Rich due to the possible carousel in Washington.


BJGE and Morris if you're willing to gamble, Richardson instead of Morris if you aren't. I don't think Richardson will have that good of a game, but he's the safer play.

Trying to decide on running back in league. Pick 2 (PPR)

Maurice Jones-Drew (Hou)
CJ Spiller (KC)
Alfred Morris (STL)
Trent Richardson (@CIN)

Order listed is the way I'm leaning presently. Hard to bench Spiller after last week's performance, and while Morris did well himself, ol' Shanny scares me.

Thanks to James Jones and his negative yard -.10 points im in a deliema. Start two Cruz, Demarious Thomas, Colston and Lance Moore from New Orleansand Torrey.

Also I have MJD and LeSean McCoy starting. Doug Martin and Darren Sproles on the bench,right decision, right?


Help! 2wr and 2rb from above.

Nothing like dealing with the running back carousel in Washington....

Like I said, he hasn't taken any contact, yet. He only just practiced with pads today, and they held him out of any kind of contact drills. He is clearly going to be a game time decision again, so if you're gonna hold out for him, at least have a secondary option, considering the SD game is at 4.

you were on the money. it looks like he won't be playing at or if he does, he will only get a few touches. he is going to be keeping my bench warm again this week. hopefully he gets better by next week.

I think the way you have it is how I'd probably go. You know MJD is going to be the focal point of the Jax offense and Spiller is hard to ignore after he blew up even in a blowout.

Need to decide who to start tomorrow.

I am thinking I will go with Romo over Vick at QB coming off that horrible performance against the Browns and considering both his WRs are questionable. I have a flex so I can start 5 ( 2 WR, 2RB + FLEX):

Arian Foster, D.Sproles, BGE, B.Tate, J.Dwyer, Welker, Fitzgerald, Demaryius Thomas, B.LaFell, S.Holmes. At TE I will probably start Witten over Cook (hoping he is close to 100% and gets his normal playing time). I don't really like it but I will have to start the Detroit defense as they're my only option. Really thought they'd have a hay day against St. Louis last week.

Currently I've got Foster & BGE at RB, Welker & Fitz at WR, and Thomas at flex.

As a Bears fan the only positive for me to Thursday night's game was in FF. My opponent only scored 27 pts total from three of his studs (Rodgers, Forte, & Nelson).

Steve Smith is Questionable with a knee injury, not really something you wanna see with a WR. I'd think about starting Lafell.

Yeah, I ended up starting Bush on Thursday, which obviously didn't pay off real well, but my options were limited. If I rolled the dice on Mathews, and he wasn't active, I would've basically been shit out of luck. He's really been vocal about his desire to get back on the field, but the Chargers are clearly taking a wait-and-see approach, considering he's been injury-prone in his short career. I am still thinking you can expect massive things out of him when he finally plays. Just look at the numbers he put up last year, while missing time and losing out on tons of touches to Tolbert.

Now, Nate Washington looks like a GTD. I'm stuck with either waiting to see if plays, and if he doesn't sticking in Britt, who might not player either and will see limited snaps, anyway. Or, I can start McCluster in the early game. He had a lot of targets in Week 1, and Buffalo's secondary was shredded by the Jets.

Is it safe to say that Rashad Jennings value is now zero? I'm thinking it is time to drop him and pick up Jared Cook. I'm weak in the TE position with only B. Celek.

I'd probably go LaFell out of that bunch if Maclin is still gimpy.

Looks fine. Maybe Sproles over Thomas in flex, but both could work out.

Maclin if you want to follow the 'start your studs' gameplan, otherwise I'd gamble on Lafell.

Is it safe to say that Rashad Jennings value is now zero? I'm thinking it is time to drop him and pick up Jared Cook. I'm weak in the TE position with only B. Celek.


He still has value, but I'd definitely drop him for Cook, seeing that your only TE is Celek. The only reason I'd hold on to him is if your RBs are so bad that you might consider starting him in the next couple of weeks.

Based purely on defense, I'd take Spiller just because I think KC's run D is a little shakier than Seattle's. But Murray ran all over them last year, wouldn't be surprised to see him go off too. It's sort of a toss up, but I might go with Murray just purely on the matchups since Seattle has to respect all the Cowboy's weapons.

Which of these two would you go with? Frank Gore, Marshawn Lynch, Steven Jackson?

I have Gore starting...which I hate cause I'm a Lions fan. I would go with Steven Jackson over Lynch.

I don't think I'll ever start him. My main two RBs are M. Lynch and D. Martin. My other RBs are P. Hillis, R. Turbin and B. Wells. I wanted to start 3 RBs and 2 WRs before the season started but I'm starting to see my 3rd RB won't cut it. Already switched to 3 WRs this week (side note: Thur. game just killed me) as I think Brandon Lloyd/Alshon Jeffery will give me more potential. Should I consider dropping one of my other RB for Cook?

I might actually take Britt. He's a knucklehead, but I think the Colts are gonna air it out and he's gonna be on the receiving end of a lot of throws.

Should I start Michael Vick or Alex Smith?

Jennings is the best drop. Turbin serves as a handcuff, Hillis could be useful, and Wells is the starter, at least for now. Jennings has trade value to the MJD owner but no value otherwise unless MJD gets hurt. Cook could be a top 10 TE who will get scooped up as soon as he has a big game, if not sooner.

Actually, scratch that on trade value. He's hurt right now, so it's safe to drop Jennings.

Yikes, tough one.... I think if you want to play it safe go with Alex Smith but Vick has the higher risk/reward.

I have Witten but I scooped up Cook as my backup. I'm actually tempted to start Cook but I've got to give Witten a few games. If he starts losing his targets to other players in that offense I will fall back to Cook.

Pretty sure I'm already set in stone on this, just looking for a second opinion.

Stafford (@SF)
Griffin (@STL)

Griffin easily has the better matchup, but how Rodgers performed against San Fran in week 1 has me thinking twice for Stafford.
