Holy crap, talk about a roller coaster of a day... I pulled Freeman for Romo at the last minute. At halftime he had scored 3 points and I was kicking myself. He blew up and ended up scoring 48 in the second half to put me way ahead (we have a bonus for 400+ yards passing). Also stated Foster, Welker, and Witten. I've scored 91 points and still have five players to go.

Andre Johnson's last two games has been the best two-game receiving total in the history of the NFL.

He's back people and a must start.

I wouldn't exactly say that. These last two games have been shootouts with the Texans D playing horrible. If the D gets back on track, I wouldn't be surprise if A. Johnson's production goes back to single digits.

D. Moore or J. Blackmon? I was disappointed that D. Moore didn't do anything last week when they played the Saints.

I'm sticking by my statement. There is more to it than how the defense is playing, Andre is also clearly 100% healthy for the first time this season. The Bears game aside with its terrible weather and low scoring; since the GB game Andre has steadily been getting more targets, huge yards, and making the catches that he normally makes but was dropping earlier in the season.

Andre Johnson has always been a must start anyway.

He's just been falling in drafts, rightly so, due to the constant games he misses due to injury every year.

In a standard 10 team ESPN league I started Alfred Morris at RB, who do I use at the flex?

Ahmad Bradshaw (also have Andre Brown)
BenJarvus Green-Ellis
Marcel Reece
Ronnie Hillman
Larry Fitzgerald

Leaning towards Marcel Reece since he's been getting plenty of touches and is producing. Bradshaw just scares me at this point with his foot problems. Don't really trust Green-Ellis.

Had an odd scoring issue in my league yesterday. One of the teams started Edelman and he had a fumble recovery for a TD as a member of the kick coverage team. The site had to make an adjustment to allow for the points.

It's so rare (outside of leagues with IDP's) that you'd have a position player worthy of an offensive starting position that would be involving in a coverage unit. I guess the one exception might be covering an onside kick when you have the hands group out there.

Play 3 (RB):

Reece
Lynch
Ronnie Hillman (backup for McGahee)

Leaning towards Reece and Lynch, but Lynch has a tough matchup and with Denver playing KC, I'm expecting it to be a blowout and Hillman to get plenty of touches in the 2nd half. Decisions, decisions...

Yeah, that's a close one. I think I would give Lynch the slight edge just because you know he's the man in Seattle and you don't know what the carry ratio will be in Denver. Isn't Hillman most likely going to split carries with Ball?

Plus Seattle is more of a running team than Denver is with Manning.

Who should I start at FLEX this week?

Here's my roster with the players that have already gone on Turkey Day highlighted:

QB: ROMO, Freeman
RB: FOSTER, Reese, BJGE, Sproles
WR: WELKER, Thomas, Fitz, Shorts, Alexander
FLEX: ?
TE: WITTEN
K: Bryant
D :SEA, CIN

Right now I've got Reese as my RB2, D.Thomas as my WR2 and Denario Alexander in the FLEX spot. Debating on whether I should play the Law Firm or Shorts at FLEX or possibly even pick up Bryce Brown to plug in there. With a rookie QB the Eagles may try to run the crap out of the ball meaning he'll get a ton of touches.

If jennings isn't playing I may go with James Jones over Blackmon or Alexander...

Do I go with Manning at GB or Freeman at ATL?

Got Lynch, Spiller, Reece and Gore...I need 3. Leaning towards benching Reece, but looks like the field will be his basically against the Bengals. Hmm.

so Danario Alexander is available in my ppr league. I have harvin and mccoy on my bench due to injury.

Planning on starting jonathan stewart, bryce brown, and jalen parmele for my two running backs and flex position.

Should I swap stewart for alexander? Parmele and brown sound like better starts than stewart, but I don't want to be making too many roster changes before playoff season. 8-3 right now and top of the league.

San Diego Padres...Let's keep the good things we have...trading Gregerson goes against that!

Boston Celtics...we won it back in 08, I'm satisfied

Nice. Made the last second change to my lineup. Took out James Jones for Ty Hilton and already benefiting thanks to his punt return TD.

Of course, looks like Hilton isn't doing much else in that game. Apparently left in the first quarter with a head injury. And to make matters worse, I benched Julio Jones (which I did last week as well to my benefit), and it appears his ankle is no longer an issue.

At least I already clinched a playoff spot and am 2 games ahead of third and fourth, so it's not like I needed to win this week.

Well I may be able to hang onto the last playoff spot. Im dumping Blackmon for shorts, and picking up Wells. Any reason I should hang onto Shonn Greene? I figure with Jackson/Forte/Jones and Wells I should be good

What's the chance that the Panthers D puts up a -10 tomorrow? I might sit out my D as my opponent is out of players.

Depending on how your league s setup for tie breakers I'd personally leave Carolina D in for extra points if in the same situation. The odds of them dropping a -10 against both a backup QB and backup RB has to be like 0.0001%, plus I'm going to bet Brown or Foles have at least 1 turnover between them and their O-Line is a lock to give up a couple sacks at least.

My leagues typically cap out at -4 points for a D/ST, so if yours is the same, you should be safe playing them regardless. I'd be surprised if Carolina scored less than 4 points.

Unbelievable...Going to lose in one of the CAG leagues by 1.26 points this week thanks to the combined 0 points from Miles Austin and Vernon Davis. After a 7-2 start this will be my 3rd straight loss and all by under 5 points. Fuck!!!!

I need 12 pts in a standard non-PPR league and I only have 1 WR left to play. Which would you play- Jackson, Maclin, or LaFell? Currently leaning towards Jackson, but I've got no faith in Foles after last weeks disaster that cost me 1st place in my league.
