Thought I would start a thread where we could all chime in with suggestions and what not regarding who to start or sit on a weekly basis. A second opinion never hurt anybody right? Or has it?


10 team league, no PPR.

Need 2 starters out of these 4:
-Ray Rice @ Jets
-Ryan Grant @ Philly
-Arian Foster vs Indy
-CJ Spiller @ Miami

Need 3 starters out of this group:
-Anquan Boldin @ Jets
-Percy Harvin @ NO
-Mike Wallace vs. Atl
-Bernard Berrian @ NO
-Johnny Knox vs Det

I think Knox against Det @ home should have a decent day. But no telling with Cutler as QB....

Dez Bryant
Hakeem Nicks
Mike Sims-Walker

I really wanna throw Dez out there and I'm leaning towards sitting Nicks.

Playing Dez without watching him take an NFL snap yet? And he won't start either and coming back from injury? Big time risk. I'd go with the other three.

Start CJ every week unless he is hurt. I would propably go with Ronnie Brown, he's a beast when healthy, all signs point to him being 100%, and Buffalo's run D is a joke. Plus I'm still iffy on how the Cheifs will split carries, they did pick up Thomas Jones and draft McCluster.

I like Celek, especially in a ppr league. Shiancoe is always a threat to score a TD though.

Im almost leaning towards Forte and CJ here. Tough call but its Browns first game back and and Ricky had 200 yards and 2 TDs against Buffalo last year. Brown struggled a bit in preseason and Forte has looked like his rookie self. But cant go wrong with either imo.

Spiller is definitely an option as well, I was lucky enough to pick him up in the ninth round of my money league. That was the night before he had his National coming out party with 2 TD's catapulting him up to the 4th 5th round. I'm going to wait at least one game before I name him my starter though. I wanna see what he can do in the regular season before I make any decisions.

Funny thing though, I have Grant, Foster, and Spiller in my money league so I guess great minds think alike. I'm starting Grant and Foster.

How about these options? Philip Rivers VS KC or Jay Cutler VS Detroit. I am leaning towards Rivers, because even without Vincent Jackson (who happens to be on my FF team but I think I may have dropped him) he is the better option then Cutler IMO.

Don't sit your studs. Cutler is a good backup in case your guy goes down but you don't really want to rely on him not throwing interceptions in that Martz offense over a whole season.

I got RB and my flex position that I need to decide between:

Need one RB and one RB/WR:
L. McCoy
Hightower
CJ Spiller
Lee Evans

Not really considering the rest of my bench, which is:
Slaton
Sproles
Dez Bryant

The rest of the starters are locked down:
P. Rivers
AP
Colston
Calvin Johnson
T. Gonzales
D/ST Cowboys
and some kicker.

I am leaning toward Hightower and McCoy, but I hate McCoy's match up against GB. That's a tough row to hoe. So I am actually considering playing the rookie Spiller in his place. Thoughts?

For the bold, start Spiller if possible. The Bills passing game is suspect so I expect them to give CJ a lot of carries as they will probably depend on him for offensive points. He had a decent preseason campaign and I expect him to get a TD or two in his first regular season game.

I'd just like to know if you guys think I should keep starting Jamaal Charles. My RBs are Benson, Foster, Charles, Spiller, Fred Taylor, and Mike Tolbert (SD).

My WRs are AJ, Welker, Mark Clayton, and Mike Wallace.

I need to start two RBs, two WRs, and a flex.

Right now I have Foster, Benson, Charles, AJ, and Welker starting. I am considering starting Clayton as he has been Bradford's favorite target and moving Welker to the flex and sitting Charles this week. What do you guys think I should do?

Foster since he is the clear #1, and Benson faces a stingy Car run D this week. Benson will have to get a ton of carries to get near 100 and he has a shoulder nick right now. I would keep starting Charles simply due to his homerun threat potential. 49ers do have a solid run D tho.

This week:

Foster, Charles, AJ, Welker, and either Benson or Clayton. I typically go w RB in the flex when confronted with this scenario.

Awesome thanks! That is exactly what I am planning on doing then. You convinced me.

Other question I have is who to start at TE. I have Brent Celek and Kellen Winslow. I'd start Celek but with Vick being the starter in Philadelphia, I am unsure on what to do. Winslow is having knee issues but looks pretty damn good last week but was no good in week 1. Can't make up my mind.

I personally wouldn't start both receivers from the same team. There's nothing worse than getting shut out by the run game.

I'd go Clayton if he's your only other option, even better if you're playing PPR.

I've practically given up on Favre too, but he's playing DET who's given up the 2nd most? points to opposing qbs. If Favre can't get it done this week, bench him.

I know, thats the only pull for Favre, but after his performance last week, well I'm almost done with him. I was pretty stoked at my QB corps going into the week, now I'm pretty much down on them both Brett and Derek Anderson. I'll leave Favre starting then, and only change if I get a last minute impulse he's going to blow it. Less than 10 points again, and thats it, he's benched, and I'm not buying Wrangler ever.

Cutler against the Pack.

Vick is a good QB when you prepare for Kolb. Or when you are playing the Lions. He will be on the road.

Cutler is an actual QB. Playing at home. Vs. a good defense.

But as a Texans fan I dont see how you think we will keep the cowboys out of the endzone. Yes, Barber is a RBBC, but so is Brown to a degree, plus Brown is going up against a stout front Dline.

I'd say Barber against us seeing as Taylor is a backup (I think?) and the Jets have been extremely stingy in the run game. But I think any of those three are pretty equal in terms of possible numbers.

Here's my hilarious conundrum:

Hines Ward has been my starting 3rd WR these past few weeks and he has made me cry. I'm thinking about switching him with a young upstart here are my options

That's a tough one. I don't think Barber will have much value against us unless he pulls a Clinton Portis and gets a lucky 1-yard TD or 2.

We are #2 in rush defense giving up 31.0 yds per game. The Jets are #3 giving up 50.5 ypg.

The only thing with us and rush defense, is that number could get entirely inflated if the Cowboys are playing with a lead for awhile. I think our Rush D is more of a product of our offense being good enough to score points (And the 'Skins running game being bad). I'd trust the Jets rushing totals more than ours currently (but hey, I could always be wrong).

The only thing with us and rush defense, is that number could get entirely inflated if the Cowboys are playing with a lead for awhile. I think our Rush D is more of a product of our offense being good enough to score points (And the 'Skins running game being bad). I'd trust the Jets rushing totals more than ours currently (but hey, I could always be wrong).

That's a very valid point, but our Secondary is very weak. I think whether the Cowboys have the lead or they're down, Romo is going to be throwing it against our young guys.

I have Nate Washington as a starting WR. I would go with him because he has a great game last week and I expect him to have another 100+ yard receiving game.

Those are all unfortunate choices, but if I had to pick one I'd go with Lee Evans. I like Spiller's upside potential but he's facing a tough test against the Jets run defense and the Bills coaching staff is foolishly not getting him enough touches. Evans, as disappointing as he's been throughout his career, is at least a WR1. With Revis out another game, I'd give the nod to Evans here.

TO and DMC, pending health. He looks like he'll start, and I know they think Bush is the starter out there, but once DMC starts reminding them what he was doing before he went down, they'll keep feeding him the ball.

TO is always a HR threat, so I'd take that over Ward or Wallace.

I need to start 2 RB's, 2 WR and Flex.

My RB's are set at:

L. McCoy

What's left:
Colston
Lee Evans
CJ Spiller
Dez Bryant
Hightower
Anthony Armstrong (just named the starter, I think I am going to go with him for sure)
N. Washington

I guess I have to stick with Colston, and like Armstrong, so really unless there's a compelling reason not to, I just need to fill the flex spot with a RB or WR.

I don't have much faith in the rest of the choices. I wish Calvin Johnson didn't have a bye week. Ricky Williams is out there on the waiver wire but it's a bad week to play him vs. PIT. I might make room for him though, maybe his season will pick up.

I am leaning towards Hightower but might get lucky with Washington, he might be get a TD this week and it is PPR.

Absolutely. While I disagree that Mathews' status makes Tolbert worthless (Tolbert is much better at blitz pickup and pass protection), the name of the game is opportunity and Blount is about to get a lot of it. He is running strong, albeit on a lesser offense, but his upside in the Tampa backfield makes him a waiver-wire hot buy.

Ouch, neither one is a particularly good choice. Carolina has a stingy pass defense and Amendola hasn't been targeted heavily as he was early in the season, but I'd lean his way if yours is a ppr or return yardage league. Otherwise I think I'd go with Walter as the Texans will probably lose and need to throw the ball a lot to play catch-up. He might get you a TD.

I could see this coming despite character issues (reason why never considered him Texan material) he is a dynamic red zone power back. becoming more the feature back on a conservative offense as oppossed to San Diego which throws all caution to the wind & under utilize Tolberts skills to move the chains as a complement to arial attack.

Need a little input....

I've assembled a juggernaut of a team in my main money league. It's a 12-team ppr+return yardage league. We start 3 wrs and no flex.

My roster looks like this:

Rodgers/Stafford

Foster
Bradshaw
Hillis
Ward

Roddy
Boldin
Harvin
Malcom Floyd
Evans
McCluster

Cooley
Shiancoe

Pitt D

I'm cruising at 6-1 and have scored the most points by far. However, it looks like my win streak will probably end this week due to week 8 byes (Bradshaw, Hillis, Boldin, White). I knew this week would hurt me, but it's compounded by the injuries to Floyd and McCluster. I've hung on to McCluster for his dual WR/RB eligibility in yahoo leagues and was planning to use him at my RB2 spot this week, but he is likely out this week with a high ankle sprain. I'm starting both Foster and Ward at running back but I have nobody else to start at my third receiver spot alongside Harvin and Evans.

Jacoby Jones is available on the waiver wire, has recovered from his calf injury, and is going to return kicks. Should I drop McCluster for JJ to improve my chances this week, or should I just ride out Dexter's injury and hold on to his upside and dual yahoo eligibility?

Realistically I won't be counting on either one of them as a starter once the byes are finished, but wide receiver depth is critical in this league. Who is the better guy to stash?

TIA.

Damn this is actually the first I'm hearing about Dexter's injury. I've had him stashed on my money league (ppr, point for every 20 return yards) bench all season and he was just starting to come around.

This could very well be the time to cut him loose especially in your situation. Does your league give a point per 20 return yards? Is Jacoby returning punts and kicks?

1 pt for every 25 return yards, half-point for every reception. Harvin is particularly valuable to me now because he's touching the ball in so many ways.

Yes, Jacoby will be returning both kickoffs and punts. With the Texans defense sucking balls, he should get a lot of chances in the return game.

Once again I need help with my team, Lesean McCoy is on a bye so:

I need to pick one RB, my Flex spot and 2 WR's:

RB's are (other than AP):
Hightower
Legarret Blount (picked up on a flier this week to stash on bench)
CJ Spiller (don't know why I have held on to this guy, still holding out hope that he'll get hot later in the season)

Now I thought about dumping Hightower and grabbing our RB Ward for the Indy game. He is going to be spelling Foster and they have a porous run D. Hightower, Blount, and Spiller all have decent matchups if nothing else.

WR's:
Lee Evans (has he awoke from his slumber, Fitzpatrick is hitting a groove)
Calvin Johnson (must start)
Dez Bryant (roller coaster performer w/ a good match up against the jags)
Marques Colston (who knows, finally had a good game last week)
Anthony Armstrong (Skins starting WR opposite of Santana Moss, good matchup vs. the Lions)

Right now I am leaning towards:

RB: Blount
Flex: Lee Evans
WR: C. Johnson
WR: Dez Bryant

Okay, I just dropped Hightower and picked up Ricky Williams. Should I start him over Dez Bryant or Lee Evans in the flex?

Well, if you came away from that game thinking Foster would suddenly become an afterthought in the Texans offensive game plan, that folly is on you. It was one game, a game in which the Texans trailed, and every time he touched the ball he made things happen. You are guilty of letting your fan frustration affect your fantasy football analysis. So what if he got fewer touches than he should have against the Colts? He still got 24 touches and 27 fantasy points! And you're advising people to trade him?!?!?! That is crazy talk.

He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage and rush+rec TDs, he's the top-rated player in most yahoo leagues, and he shows no signs of slowing down. There are only two guys I'd trade him for, and even then I doubt I'd make that trade as both Peterson and Chris Johnson have brand name value that makes them slightly overvalued for trade purposes. Simply put, you'd have to give more than Foster to get one of them in return, when they should all be equally valued.

When you have a breakout stud that you drafted for great value, you hold him tight and make others overpay. The last thing you do is trade him away. Think Priest Holmes....

He is absolutely going to go bonkers down the stretch with Moss there and tasty matchups against the Texans twice, Jacksoville once, and Indy once.

Schaub. Jacksonville's secondary is horrible and I expect our passing offense to rebound this week. Additionally, Arian Foster has proven himself to be a stud in every facet of the game. He could easily turn a short screen into a long TD.

:cry2:

Looks like Schaub has his work cut out for him now, since Ryan decided to make the Raven's pass defense look like our pass defense.

I started Ryan with Rivers on a bye, I was worried about this game agains the Ravens, man was I pleasantly suprised by that performance.

Should I trade away my depth at RB to get back what I lost in Boldin?

One of the guys in my league is super rich at WR (Nicks, AJ, Lloyd, Tampa Mike, R. Moss) and hurting at RB. His team has done well but is fighting it out for a playoff spot with three other teams.

Should I try and trade away my RB depth in Hillis for one of those guys? Fwiw I have both Foster and CJ3 handcuffed with Ward and Ringer.

I would, I have faith in both your handcuffs to be reliable fantasy starters should the need arise. Make sure you get a good WR if you give up Hillis though.

He's offered me AJ for Hillis straight up. That would give me some studly receivers but I will lose crucial depth at rb and the ability to play the matchups.

Stick with some combination of Floyd or Evans at WR3, or pull the trigger and get AJ?

As much as I hate trading away a stud RB, I think this would give you the best chance to win your league. It's definitely a risky move though, good luck!

I've got Garrard starting for Rivers in 2 of my 3 leagues. As much as I hate to say it, I think he is going to shred our secondary pretty good.

Took the deal, but tweaked it a bit. He gave me AJ + Beanie Wells and I gave him Hillis + Lee Evans. I felt great about it because it gave me some minimum depth at RB and a proven stud receiver.

Of course, I took the deal about an hour before I heard the latest news from Minnesota. Percy Harvin unexpectedly is now doubtful for Sunday! Fuuuuudge.

With the loss of Evans, I now have no other option at receiver due to Floyd and Jacoby Ford being on bye. I've jumped out to a big lead on my opponent thanks to Roddy White killing it for me and Michael Turner sucking for him, but he has some solid matchups remaining....namely, Garrard, Mike Thomas, and Lewis against our cheesecloth defense. And to make matters worse, I am starting Favre for Rodgers. Favre without Harvin or Rice? Ruh roh.

Dez is kinda boom or bust as well but is starting to produce consistently. I worry about that Giants D pass rush bothering Kitna back there, that's the only reason it's not a no-brainer to me.

Right now I've got Moreno and Hillis starting over Best and T. Jones (KC). Keep it that way?

Also, I have Holmes, M. Williams (TB, and has been studly lately), and Wayne starting but I have this Randy Moss guy lurking in the shadows. Keep it?

If you put Moss in I would only do it over Holmes, keep the other two fo sho. I'd probably keep the RB's the way you have them, without knowing their matchups. Who are they playing?

Pennington tightened up the Silly Bandz in his shoulder and is making the start today. I'd probably stick with Wallace since I doubt the pats are going to harry Big Ben as much as the Titans are going to terrorize Penningtonstein.

I would have a hard time benching Hillis, even against the Jets.

Denver and Buffalo rank 31 and 32 against the run respectively so there is a lot of upside there. I also have a feeling Moreno gets it done today (hopefully). Lots of good options for you, I would probably go with Jones and Hillis.

I drafted the Krog then realized Aaron would get majority of targets so swapped TE's. But Brady likes to spread it around, like Brees, to the point your player might not even see any targets so dropped him too. go with a simple offense that gives its TE decent looks every week even if they are only average, go after consistancy & avoid hit & miss.

I own Rodgers and never bench him, but that's a tough one. The Texans D just keeps on giving to fantasy owners. The fan in me says start Rodgers, but if you want to hedge your real world with your fantasy world (or vice versa), start Sanchez.

And Felix Jones all the way.

Favre @ WAS or Cutler vs PHI? Currently I have Favre starting, as the Eagles D can get after the QB. I think Cutler has a higher boom potential, but Favre vs. the worst D in the league ahead of the Texans is the safe play.

Jackson seems fine for a start here as Marshall and the Dolphins passing game in general has been a pretty big let down.

Flacco and Sanchez are close, but I'd go with Flacco. He's either thrown multiple TDs or eclipsed 300 yds for the last five weeks and I expect that trend to continue against Tampa.

Or maybe I just hate Mark Sanchez and those ****wad Jets.

Well as many of you know, I was the fortunate individual that traded FOR Frank Gore last week at the trade deadline only to have him get injured for the season in his first game on my team. Terrible.

But I quickly went out and signed his replacement, Brian Westbrook, and need help with who to start.

We start two RBs, two WRs, and a flex.

My must starts are Arian Foster, Jamaal Charles, and Calvin Johnson. Guys fighting for a starting spot are Brian Westbrook, Wes Welker, Maurice Morris, and Marques Colston.

So the positions I need help at are flex and 1 WR. I can either go WR at both positions and put Welker and Colston out there. Or I can split it and start either Welker or Colston at WR and put a RB at flex.

What would you do? Thanks!!! Rep to all you that give suggestions.

Morris going against Chicago- not a good option
Colston going against Cinci- Must start
