Yea I squeezed into the last playoff spot, my opponet has Foster, Cruz, Spiller, those are the guys Im worried about. But Spiller is playing against Seattle, and Cruz is banged up. He also has Colston and Thomas with P Manning at QB

Who should I start at 3rd WR
Alexander at Car (leaning toward him right now)
James Jones against Chi (With jennings back he might be a dud)
Shorts at Mia

RB's are Forte/Brown I do have Greene and a waiver claim for Wilson, if Bradshaw can't play should I start Wilson over Brown? Rumor is McCoy might be back....

So I finished 3rd in the standings but I'm feeling pretty good about my chances. The #2 guy who I play in the first round has the 5th most points in the league and has been winning with smoke and mirrors all year. If I win next week it will mark the 4th consecutive finals appearance for me between baseball and football (I'm 1-2 though).

Do I bench a "slumping" Colston vs. TB for red hot Danario Alexander?

I'd start Alexander for both. In the leagues I've had Alexander, I've rotated him in and out of my lineup as matchups permit, but every week I didn't start him, I wish I did. He's clearly Phillip Rivers' favorite target and I'd classify him as a stud at this point in the season.

I'd personally start Wilson over Brown, but that could blow up in your face (see Brown).

Going to have a look and see what WR are available either tonight or tomorrow when I get a chance, but if Dez Bryant is out this week, should I roll with TY Hilton (@Hou) or take a chance with Greg Jennings (@Chi).

Also looking for a second running back. Leaning Alfred Morris (@Cle), or plug in CJ Spiller (Sea)?

Thanks for the advice, I'll see if brown is starting instead of Mccoy....

Why does Shaub absolutely refuse to check the ball down to Foster this year? Foster was a huge part of the passing game last year.


Foster's on pace for over 400 touches, that could be a factor.

I'd go with Bell at RB because Detroit plays Arizona, and Bell should get a decent amount of rushing and receiving yards with a chance for a TD or two. At defense, Cincinnati and Detroit look like they have good matchups but both could be trap games, so I'd look to other options. Cleveland plays Washington, who could be a good matchup, but now that Garcon is healthy, I see them as NE-lite for fantasy defenses. Baltimore plays Denver, and I don't consider Baltimore an elite, must-start defense anymore. That leaves Miami, who actually has a good matchup. I'd expect 6-10 points, barring a Henne anomaly (good or bad, but more likely bad than good).

Going to have a look and see what WR are available either tonight or tomorrow when I get a chance, but if Dez Bryant is out this week, should I roll with TY Hilton (@Hou) or take a chance with Greg Jennings (@Chi).

I don't really like either option, but I'd go with TY Hilton in the covered stadium over Jennings in the (potential) snow. At RB, I'd go with the stud with the better matchup, who would be Morris.

Anyone who can get, or has Cincy, their D is a must start this week.

I need TE help.

T. Scheffler or A. Fasano or B. Watson or D. Clark?

I have C. Harbor right now but I also have the Bengals D and I hate these kinds of situation. I also have J. Gordon so I'm not that high on B. Watson. I don't like having two players from one offense unless one is the QB or RB.

So it begins tonight. My opponent has Bryce Brown, Andy Dalton and the CIN defense going - I have no one. By tomorrow morning I could have a really good or really bad feeling about things. I want it this year.

Time to decide between BJGE, Sproles, and David Wilson for this week at RB....I'm leaning BJGE and Sproles

I have almost the exact same decision to make except add A.Foster to the mix.

Obviously Foster will start as my RB1 but trying to decide on my RB2:

BJGE, SPROLES, WILSON. I mas also leaning towards the Law Firm.

I wish the Bengals weren't playing tonight. If I knew Bradshaw was going to be out I might play Wilson.

Tough choices. I have put my recommendations in red. I don't like Nicks or Bryant this week but given your choices I say you have to start Nicks and Austin.

Thanks to the Seattle defense I survived and advanced past the wild card round.
Here's my lineup for round #2 of the playoffs:
QB: FREEMAN, Romo
RB: FOSTER, BJGE, Sproles, Wilson, Tate
WR: D.THOMAS, WELKER, D.Alexander, Shorts, Fitz
FLEX: D.ALEXANDER
TE: WITTEN
K: BRYANT
D: SEA, Detroit, (could also play Cincy if I wanted)

Brown needs to get me about 12 for me to feel ok with starting him.

I told a buddy to keep me updated while I was at work, he is dead to me now

Those are the exact same running backs I have to decide between, and I'm going BJGE and Sproles. If this were the regular season and BJGE was continuing to underperform I might have taken a chance on Wilson, but it's the playoffs, BJGE is on a streak of good games, and Sproles is coming off of a monster game into a good matchup (for receivers, which is what Sproles basically is). While Wilson's matchup is amazing and he has the talent to put up a huge game, he could also fumble on his second carry of the night and Coughlin could bench him like he did in the first game of the season. I'd only risk starting Wilson if my other options were sketchy at best (like Bryce Brown, who still has a half to redeem himself).

I do play in a .5 PPR though, so I value Sproles a bit higher than I would in a standard league. I think I'd still start Sproles in a standard league, but I'd at least be considering Wilson.

Brown only having 5 points (PPR) is nice thus far. Making me feel a little bit better about my matchup this week.
