The way the Bucs offense has been rolling, Barth may be scoring you singles not 3pers... Good problem for reals life, bad problem for fantasy.


Yeah but my way of thinking is that there's no way they can keep this rolling. The only reason I ask is because it's a dynasty league, and kickers score a decent amount of points compared to the other players. Weird setup.

Appreciate the feedback.

Unless they play the Jags or the Chiefs, start anyone who plays against those JV teams


And the Saints. They are on pace to give up the most yards in NFL history - by a lot - and before last night the least amount of points scored against them was 24.

You can't start Luck over Brees any week. That's just a second guess that only ever works if Luck scores more points.


that's my point. Its insanity to start Luck over Brees and yet I still lost. What really killed me was I left Golden Tate's 16 points on the bench:wall:

Well I play the top guy in my league this week (8-1). The good news: Rodgers and Jordy Nelson are on bye for him. The bad news: He has Big Ben against KC and Doug Martin on his roster.

He leads my division and if I have any hopes of catching him (5-4) I have to win this week.

I had a buddy get his team shut down for the season, for changing his name to Dougy Martin 56...its awful but hilarious

Who should I start in my RB2 slot? As usual looking for most rush attempts and yardage...

Jonathan Stewart(DEN)
Jonathan Dwyer(KC)
Marcel Reece(@BAL)

I don't even get the reference, because he scored 56 in that league? Is it a money league?

I never pay attention to my league's projected points. They are always so far off. Right now my site has me winning by 3 (114-111)

I still have to figure out who I'm starting. Here's my roster with my probable starters listed first:

QB: FREEMAN, Vick, Romo
RB: FOSTER, DWYER, Law Firm, Sproles, Tate
WR: WELKER, D.THOMAS, Fitz, Shorts, Hartline
FLEX: (?) Will have to decide between BJGE, Shorts, and Hartline
TE: Witten
K: Bryant
D: SEA

His probable starters:
QB: BIG BEN
RB: D.Martin, Forte
WR: Miles Austin, Mike Williams
FLEX: Probably another WR (Nicks, Moore, or Nate Washington)
TE: H. Miller
K: Gostkowski
D: MIA

I hope Mendenhall is out another week and Dwyer is healthy so I can play him against KC.

I would go Romo. Despite the turnovers he's got the better potential for a big game.

Dwyer will be splitting time with Redman. Reece will see some pass targets, but it looks like Taiwan Jones will be starting at HB. As usual, Stewart splits his carries with Williams and even Newton.

With all that said, I'd probably go with Dwyer against that horrible KC D.

Chris Johnson (@MIA)
Stevan Ridley (v. BUF)
Ahmad Bradshaw (@CIN)
Matt Forte (v. HOU)

I need to pick 3. I'm leaning towards benching CJ2K based on the match-up but he went nuts last week against Chicago and he's one of those guys who you almost have to start. NO PPR. Any thoughts?

I agree with all that. I just read on rotoworld that the Raiders have confidence in Taiwan Jones and Palmer said he will get his touches and he's excited to see him run. I just picked him up.

Stick with Brees. He could easily get in a shootout with Matt Ryan.

Donald Brown being active is making me nervous about playing Vick Ballard...

Should I start Dwyer in a timeshare against a crappy Chiefs D or Law Firm?

Brees. He was a let down last week but gotta trust your studs.

Law Firm all the way. Redman will be vulturing in Pitt

of course I bench shorts and he goes off for 16 points! I made a last minute change to switch out shorts for Hartline at my flex position.

Weigh in on this Trade... my team was hurting for depth at RB.

Matt Ryan, and Vincent Jackson for Victor Cruz, and Maurice Jones-Drew.

I know Jones Drew will be out another 2 weeks... but I need the push to make the playoffs, and I view Cruz as an upgrade to V-Jax, even with him doing stellar. Also I have Andrew Luck that is a instant start for the remainder of the year.

Below is my team post trade.

QB - Andrew Luck (start 1)
WR - Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Brian Hartline, T.Y. Hilton, Darrius Heyward-Bey (start 3)
TE - Jimmy Graham (start 1)
RB - Darren McFadden, Ryan Matthews, Maurice Jones-Drew, Issaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, Marcel Reese.
K - Matt Bryant (start 1)
DEF - Patriots (start 1)
FLEX - WR/RB/TE (start 1)


Any thoughts on the trade?

You are putting all of your eggs in one basket with Nicks and Cruz as your top receivers. I try to stay away from situations like that. Also, Luck is definitely having a nice season and I don't know who the Colts have left on their schedule but Matt Ryan has been pretty sick this year and he has MUCH better WRs to throw to. Something to consider...
