Appreciate the feedback from everyone. Now which QB should I start? Stafford or RGIII? It now looks like Stafford will start this week but worried if he tweaks his hip and is removed. For our league it's not so much about TD's as it is yardage. 300 yards nets big bonus points and it's point per completion. Right now I have RGIII starting.


I own both these QBs in my one money league and every week Griffin has outscored Stafford. And the last two weeks I started Griffin. I'm making it three in a row this week. It's hard to say how much running the Redskins will do, but Tampa's pass defense hasn't been that good.

Plus, with Stafford's potential injury, I don't necessarily expect him to sit, but I expect a mediocre performance at best.

I'm still on the fence between starting Gates vs KC or Bennett vs Philly. Every website has Gates scoring more points but I don't want to be ratings slave (The League reference) but now Mikel LaShoure is already questionable after only one game. Should I keep Mikel in the lineup or start Mike Williams who I just pick up on waivers? Going to be a crappy weekend that's for sure.

So would I be crazy to start BOTH Bradshaw and Brown and bench Ridley? I need to start 3 of these guys:

CJ (ugh)
A. Brown
A. Bradshaw
S. Ridley

I'm starting CJ even though I know 1/2 of you will say he is the one I should bench. I don't give up on players until at lest the 4th game.


Yes, you are crazy I would go with Riley and probably Brown. I just don't know how many carries Bradshaw is getting. If CJ was not playing Houston I would feel much better about him this week. Overall, I can see why you're fretting this decision. It's not very easy.

I know what you mean man. However, Gates has a history of destroying KC. I just picked up Owen Daniels myself so I'm even considering sitting Gates. I would watch Mikel's status and keep an eye on your options.

I got a question, I just started playing Fantasy football. Should I start Vick over Carson Palmer? Playing Vick is a bit risky and he's playing the G-men this week... and how do I add another def since steelers are in a bye week...

Vick
arian foster
doug martin
roddy white
aj green
jacome tamme
eric decker
david akers

and steelers def starting (bye week)

This is a tough one. It could go either way. Vick is prone to turnovers and the Giants are going to go all out against him. Palmer is facing a meh pass D in Den but he will be without Heyward Bey and possibly Myers. However, Palmer has been consistent. I would probably go with Palmer. But Vick's back is against the wall and it is in PHilly. Tough call!!

You need to probably drop someone if it doesn't allow you to auto add a D. I would say
probably Decker and hope no one snags him off waivers.

Just traded Alfred Morris/Jermichael Finley/Anquan Boldin for Victor Cruz/Marques Colston in a 12-team dynasty league.

So now I have the entire Giants WR corps (Cruz/Nicks/Barden) .. guess it's time to unload them to the league's friendly neighborhood Giants fan for Adrian Peterson. ;)

OK got a few "who should i starts":

1. Which QB?
a). Eli Manning
b). Matt Schaub

2. Defense?
a). NY Jets
b). SF 49ers
c). Pick up Min?

3. Should I pick up a guy like Ramses Barden and play him over one of these 3 receivers (B Marshall, Vincent Jackson or Nate Washington?)

Any suggestions would be appreciated! :)

So many injured players that might play (Forte, Jackson, Spiller). For my W/R position who would you play:
Chris Johnson (hasn't done shit, but would hate to miss a break out game)
or
Dwayne Bowe?

I did this exact thing. Hankerson SHOULD at least get a few deep balls thrown his way. Tampa pass D SUCKS (and I'm a diehard Bucs fan).

Doug Martin. RB vs. TE in Flex? RB wins.

should i start romo or smith? romo's playin the bears. smith's playing a revis-less jets.


Kind of a tossup. I'd probably go with Romo though. Smith is kind of a safe play, where you'll probably get 10 points easily, whereas Romo you may top 20 pts (30 if he has a spectacular game in prime time) depending on your league setup.

1. Eli
2. 49ers, easily
3. You should be fine the way you are. Kind of a throw-your-hands-up decision there. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Bowe. You may miss a CJ2Lame monster game but the chances of that happening until you bench him? Nil.

CJ2Lame or Ben Tate?

Johnson is easily the most infuriating first round pick I've ever made. I'd be happier if he just went out with a season ending injury so I could just drop him already.

I'd go with Tate. He's more of a sure bet to score than CJ, imo.

I had Johnson last year on one team. Pretty sure he ended up riding the bench. His 1000 yard season was very misleading. He only had 4 games over 100 yards and didn't show up most weeks.

Posted 30 September 2012 - 01:37 PM

Here's my roster with my starters highlighted in red:

QB: Vick, Romo, Palmer
RB: Foster, BJGE, Sproles, Tate, Ryan Williams
WR: Fitz, Welker, D.Thomas, LaFell,
FLEX: (RB/WR/TE) D.Thomas
TE: Witten, Cook
K: Bryant
D: Seattle, Arizona

I don't like any of my QB's right now but I think Vick has the best matchup.
TE I'm also at a loss. Witten seems to still be getting the targets but he's had a bad case of the drops. I could possibly throw Sproles in at FLEX but I think Thomas has a chance to have a big game against a bad Oakland pass D.

Britt isn't an option now, he's inactive. James Jones and the pack should have a field day against the soft saints D tonight.

Chris Johnson or Reggie Bush? And yes, I know I'm awful in depth at RB right now.

Edit: Playing Bush, so I'm sure CJ0K will have his breakout game today.

I'd have to say CJ0K, but its really a coin flip.

Edit: Forgot CJ was playing the Houstons. Bush would be my pick

Julio Jones let me down, but luckily had Roddy White on the same team. 32.90 points between the two of them, and White had 29.90.

And I benched Gates for Rudolph. That was a mistake.

Maybe it's time to move Michael Turner into the starting lineup.

At the very least, Mathews got you something as the Chargers were trying to run the clock out. Up until the middle of the 4th, he had gotten me 1 point lol. Apparently, the Chargers were quite serious about him losing the starting gig over his inability to hold onto the ball. It doesn't help that Battle rewarded them by getting into the endzone twice. Hopefully, that situation will work itself out in our favor, but Mathews has quickly gone from a must-start to a wait-and-see situation, especially if Battle is gonna get the touches in the redzone...

I think McCoy has the greater potential for that kind of game. The Bear run defense has been pretty stout. Plus, McCoy has been playing kind of human so far this year, and the Eagles really need a big offensive performance.
