OK, which defense and QB should i play tomorrow!?

- QB: Matt Schaub, Eli Manning, or Russel Wilson
- Def: STL Rams D, 49ers D, or pick up Chargers D?


Eli and the Rams. I like Eli much better than Schaub or Wilson, and I pick the Rams through process of elimination. I would not start any defense against NE, and I'd be hesitant to start any defense against a hot Cam Newton, so Rams it is. Keep expectations low because Peterson should shred them, but maybe they can take advantage of Ponder's poor play.

Obviously it's a situation I'll have to keep an eye on, but since Dez Bryant is intending to play (last I heard anyways), should I put him in as my WR3 or play it safe and keep Ty Hilton (Hou) in there?


I'd honestly just start Hilton. Dez is the better fantasy receiver by a large margin, but Hilton has been doing pretty well (albeit inconsistent) and Romo could easily just favor Witten and Austin with Dez being limited.

Josh Freeman (vs NO) or Matt Ryan (vs NYG)?


If you subscribe to the idea of start your studs, go with Ryan, but I don't think you can go wrong with either. I think Freeman will have the better day, but Ryan is the safer play.

Still back and forth on my defense. I guess I have until 3:00 to decide as both are afternoon games. Detroit has the better match up but I think Seattle is the better defense overall. Seattle is on the road and they don't typically play as well as they do at home. I just have this gut feeling that Detroit will screw me somehow if I start them.

R. Bush (vs Jac) or Moreno (@ Bal) Standard Yahoo league

I'm thinking of going with Bush as he's playing a worse defense.

Another last minute question. Up until last night was pretty set on Alfred Morris, but with RGIII out, do you think Morris could actually run more or the Brown's defense will try to gang up on Morris?

Seattle is on the road and they don't typically play as well as they do at home. I just have this gut feeling that Detroit will screw me somehow if I start them.


I'd put Detroit at 3-18 points this week, most likely around 8-9. Barring an implosion, I can't see Seattle scoring less than 8 with potential for much more, so I'd go with the better defense over the better matchup.

R. Bush (vs Jac) or Moreno (@ Bal) Standard Yahoo league

I'm thinking of going with Bush as he's playing a worse defense.


I like Moreno as the running back on a better team with a better QB. I haven't really been paying attention to Bush, but from what I remember, he's cooled off quite a bit since the start of the season and a lot of people are disappointed with his starts, so unless he's turned it around in the past two weeks, I wouldn't start him over Moreno.

Another last minute question. Up until last night was pretty set on Alfred Morris, but with RGIII out, do you think Morris could actually run more or the Brown's defense will try to gang up on Morris?


I'd still start Morris. I feel that Cousins should do enough to keep the pass defense honest that I'm still starting Pierre Garcon, although I have tempered expectations from him.

Morris and all three two one of my three receivers (Wayne, Hilton Julio Jones) shitting the bed this week. Only saving grace so far has been Richardson, Brees, and Denver. At least Ryan and White haven't helped my opponent, and with them in the lead, hoping Atlanta just runs the ball from here on out.

Edit: And how about that. Hilton just had a nice TD.

Edit 2: And now Jones with a TD. Sure my opponent has Ryan, but it didn't go to White or Gonzalez. The fantasy gods have heard my plea.

Edit 3: Time to complain about Lawrence Tynes. Points are bound to start incoming now, right?

Should I start Greg Olsen or Tony Scheffler?

Pettigrew is likely out. My QB is Stafford and opponent has Cam Newton. Right now I have Olsen starting. But Lafell is active today.

Down 17 at the moment and we both pretty much have everyone playing right now. Of course Roddy White and Cruz are doing nothing and Cruz just got hammered but worst of all I have Cobb and Jones on the bench and they have over 30 points already between them. Looks like my season is going down.

I am up by 28 right now but I only have Golden Tate and my opponent has Ridley and the ARI defense. Really wish Cruz had put up more than 2 points.

Up by 74 and he has Gore, Jason Hanson, and Denario Alexander left and I only have Aaron Hernandez. Feeling pretty good about it. Wayne sucked, but he had White, Bryce Brown, and the St Louis Defense.

Looks like I'm getting at worse $100 with the chance to make it $150. I just need our pharmacist to win his matchup against our AP guy (although it doesn't look good). Really don't want to face Brandon Marshall and AP twice in three weeks.

All I need is Mikel Leshoure to have 113 yds and 3 TDs or 173 yds and 2 TDs. UGH!

If Matt Ryan could have just got White into the mix instead of Jones, we would have been very close there was a 20 point difference right there for me.

A 1.96 from Freeman against the Saints? REALLY? This is what is going to ruin my season??? I'm still in it but if he had put up even 10 points I'd feel much better.

I have Brady, Ridley, Wallace and CJ2K left and my opponent has Romo, Gore, Hernandez and Bailey left. I'm up by 20 points right now. I really want this one.

I'm dumbfounded as to how Tampa Bay got shut out by New Orleans. I can see losing 21-41 or something like that, but for both Freeman and Martin to get shut out against a defense that just got destroyed by Eli and Wilson last week was unexpected.

Although, the Giants also got nothing this week, so I guess it's just the rule of any given Sunday wrecking havoc, like always.

...aaaaaand I'm losing by 10 points now. Romo is going off and even Bailey is above projections already. Of course Mike Wallace isn't doing shit. I'm never drafting a WR above the 10th round again. Even Julio Jones has been wildly inconsistent this season.

Can't believe S. Janikowski is putting 19 points for my opponent. I've scored 121 with R. Wilson and M. Lynch left playing and they already sat M. Lynch. Right now my opponent has 99 points with C. Spiller and the 49er D left. What sucks is I'm a Niners fan, so I'm rooting hard for the Niners to shut down the Pats.

This is making me crazy:
Me (121.30) Opponent (100.34)
R. Wilson - 39.40 A. Rogers - 24.94
D. Martin - 3.50 A. Bradshaw - IA
M. Lynch - 18.70 C. Spiller - 16.10
J. Jones - 21.20 R. White - 1.60
J. Jordon - 2.70 M. Colston - 6.00
D. Clark - 4.20 M. Bennett - 1.50
D. Wilson - 6.60 A. Peterson - 31.20
P. Dawson - 3.0 S. Janikowski - 19.00
Bengals D - 22.00 49ers D - haven't played yet
