Megatron
Julio Jones
Mike Williams
Josh Gordon
Kenny Britt
James Jones


Julio Jones
Mike Williams
James Jones
Megatron (he may be limited...but the defense is very beatable.)

Should I start Felix Jones or pick up Vick Ballard and start him if Donald Brown doesn't play?

I say play Ballard, since Brown is expected to sit out today. I just don't trust Jones. Not one bit.

Same here. Just saw the update that Brown is most likely not playing today. I could also pick up Ballard from waivers.

Would you still start Hartline over Ballard and Green at FLEX?

I might even be able to nab someone like Shorts.

Have both Gronk and Vernon Davis on a bye this week, yay me! Anyone have any suggestions for TE this week from these guys:

(Kellen Davis, Dennis Pitta, Anthony Fasano & Dallas Clark).

Thanks.

If you're in a PPR, I'd say it's worth taking a flyer on Hartline over Green. Ballard should get some good run, too. Even non-PR, I'd probably take Hartline over Green since Starks might eat away at some of his carries. Shorts is someone to definitely keep an eye on. I expect the Jags to fall behind big and what else but to throw and who else to catch?
I'd even go as far as to say drop Green for Shorts unless you're gonna pick up Ballard. Low risk, high reward, I think.

Ouch...that's not a pretty selection you got there. I'd say based on matchup, you gotta go with Davis as the Titans give up the most points against TEs...but my gut says go with Fasano. Really though, the best you can expect is a small handful of points from either...good luck with that!

Zoidberg, I think you gotta have faith in Megatron. I'm torn between benching him for Cobb/D. Moore and starting him...but I have to believe he's talented enough to pull through. Good luck!

Unfortunately my league is non-PPR (would have been HUGE last week with Witten's monster day in receptions). My only concern with Hartline. He's been questionable with a groin issue all week. He is playing but will he be gimped and/or exit early if he steps wrong and aggravates his injury?

I'm leaning towards dropping Green and picking up Shorts. I think you're right, they will be playing from behind making them pass more and everything I've read says he's getting an assload of targets.

Green has done absolutely nothing with the opportunities given to him. Even in favorable matchups he can't seem to pick up yards. I think it's because I'm a Bears fan so GB will do anything they can to sabotage my fantasy team... ;)

Yeah, Green is probably gonna share the load with Starks and I just think he'll be bottled up. Considering Tannehill and Hartline are both a bit gimpy, and should anything happen, I don't like Matt Moore throwing...haha. Shorts could be a real keeper...especially with Laurent robinson still not 100% and losing the starting position to Shorts.

I'm pulling the trigger and rolling with Shorts over Green. I hope Shorts ends up being the Laurent Robinson of 2012 for me. Laurent carried me into a playoff spot last year.

So looks like my roster for this week will be:
QB: Vick (really hoping for that big game against NO)
RB: Foster, BJGE
WR: Fitz, D. Thomas
FLEX: Shorts
TE: Witten
K: Bryant
D: SEA

Watching ESPN and they just said Jordy Nelson and Donald Brown have been ruled ACTIVE. Also I think I saw them say Tannahill is going to play.

Tannehill is also active. Along with Donald Brown but Ballard will start. All systems go for Megatron hopefully the knee injury is not serious.

Ugh, I'm still not sure if I should start:

Jackson vs Hou
Thomas vs Ind
Redman vs NYG
Shorts vs Det

I'm also in a toss up on DEF:
Lions vs Jax
Ravens vs Cle

I think Jackson and/or Shorts and Ravens D here. Lions have been really up and down on D...and I think Jax might score a bit.

Jordy starts, you start him. Too talented not to.

I would say start Redman purely based on touches. If he was available in my league I would have started him over Shorts (really wish Dwyer was healthy this week).

Man, on defense I don't know. I guess I would go Lions. They can probably do a little more damage against Gabbert than the Ravens and Cleveland.

EDIT:

LOL, sorry I guess I just gave the opposite recommendation as Rhymenoceros so that's probably not very helpful...

I am leaning towards Jackson as well. Because even though the match up is brutal he is getting healthier and the last time I doubted him he went off. I tend to agree with Ravens D even though they are banged up pretty bad.

I would say start Redman purely based on touches. If he was available in my league I would have started him over Shorts (really wish Dwyer was healthy this week).

I keep thinking Redman but my concern is his ankle and if he can play the whole game.

That was the reason I snagged the Lions on waivers. However, I'm not sure because the injuries on that D and they have been very up and down all season.

Hahah, it isn't but this is fantasy football! You just gotta throw the dice half the time and hope for the best!


So, true. :lol:

Exactly. I guess I should probably also say to take my advice with a grain of salt. I always think I'm making the best choice but at the end of the week it doesn't work out. :cold:

Last week for example I started Vick over Freeman & Romo. Of course Vick ended up scoring the least points of the three (17). Romo had 36 (hit a yardage bonus in my league), and Freeman had 28.

I am completely torn between the two! Matt Ryan has good potential, and RG3 can always run 2 in.

It really comes down to the Cowboys defense. If the Cowboys play good D, Ryan stinks.
