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.


The way I look at it is this : I think the Falcons will try to run the ball more - since the Cowboys corners have been playing well. Also, the Falcons need to start getting their run game going as the weather gets colder. I could be completely wrong though.

That and the fact that I think RGIII Will run\pass all over the Panthers.

Eli vs PIT
Roethlisberger vs NYG
Vick vs NO?


I say Vick, I think it'll be a high-scoring game so Vick gets a lot of throws.

In a ppr league at the flex position should I start Mcgahee, Fitzpatrick, Flacco, Torrey Smith, or Mike Williams (TB)?


I'd roll with McGahee.

Matt Ryan or RG3?



Matt Ryan, lots of good throws should happen against the Dallas secondary.

and to the guy asking Jordy Nelson or Brown, start Nelson. Too talented not to start.

My own question, should I start Bradshaw? I can also get Andre Brown or Stephens-Howling off the FA wire.

True and I have resisted playing Ryan all year, except the game he stunk it up against Oakland.

Gotta stick with the stars right? Plus RG3 and Newton are gonna be trying to show each other up.

Pick up Brown, that way you have the starter in either situation.

I'm lucky to be able to just bench Bradshaw this week.

As a Cowboys fan - I think that the Falcons could have success running the ball against us. Going into this game - Rob Ryans mindset has to be to stop the passing game.

Hartline sounds like he's going to start and has a better matchup.


Ended up going with Hartline and Alex Green... my initial gut instinct. I already didnt listen to my gut this week, and started Denver in place of the Chargers D.

So far Hartline has put up 6.5 and Green has put up a respectable 6.4.

Green is already looking to surpass my RB2 of Ryan Matthews for points this week.... wow...

I was wondering why they never incorporated this as a stat... I always had to use a different site to try to see who had the most targets/drops/reception %.

Buh, Cobb already has 2 TDs in the game with Jordy out. I hope this doesn't bite me in the ass! And what's with Leshoure vulturing all the TDs?? Megatron is doing his best pushing the offense forward too. Sigh. I can't lose to the last place team...

Boy do I hate Eric Decker right now....

I am currently down by 55.44 and he still has Seahawks D, and Marshawn Lynch.

Although, I have Matt Ryan, Vincent Jackson, Hakeem Nicks, Darren McFadden, Jimmy Graham, Matt Bryant

Chances good I pull this off?

You might be able to pull it off, he's probably get 20-25 more pts

Ryan should get you 20 and if the others can get 55-60 combined you may squeak by

The quick score by Minnesota has me very 0hopeful...

Followed by a quick jab from V-Jax, and then a TD. Very nice!

Well, so far Moore was the wrong choice. My bad :(

3 weeks in a row will I be defeated by the top score. Thanks Raiders defense!!! I was feeling pretty good with AP tearing it up and then see some unknown (with all due respect) gets two 3743 yard touchdowns. What gives?!

I also got the answer to my question why people were dropping the Vikings D. Jokes on me I should have started the G Men.
