Alright guys I'm in the championship game and need help on who to start. At RB, Ray Rice is a definite. But I am trying to decide if I should still start Michael Bush or give CJ Spiller a shot.

I also can start Spiller at WR if you think I should definitely keep Bush in at the flex. My WRs are pretty good too though. I have Larry Fitzgerald, Hakeem Nicks, and Jordy Nelson.

So basically here are my choices:

RB1: Ray Rice (definite starter)
RB2: MJD
Flex: Michael Bush or CJ Spiller
WR: Larry Fitz, Hakeem Nicks, Jordy Nelson, CJ Spiller (pick 2)

Thanks!!!!! Oh and it is a .5 PPR.

I won my league championship last night after the Saints beat the Falcons. The other guy had Brees starting so I was a bit worried, but I was so far ahead of him that by the end I beat him by 50 points. It was a remarkable year for me because I drafted 3 QB's in my league's draft. I got Stafford first, Schaub second, and in the second to last round I decided to take a flyer on Cam Newton. Boy did that ever pay off! I never started Schaub or Stafford and Newton carried my team and I think he'll be the consensus no.1 pick in most leagues next year. I also picked up some guys off the waiver wire that played a huge role. Guys like Victor Cruz, Julio Jones, and C.J. Spiller helped me out a lot. I finished the regular season 7-4 but was on a 3 game winning streak going into the playoffs. I was the no.3 seed and knocked off the no.2 seed and proceeded to win the whole thing.

I guess I'll get this started for this season:

Which two should I start?

Marshawn Lynch @ Arizona
Frank Gore @ Green Bay
Ben Tate vs. Miami

Lynch is listed as 'questionable' against Arizona, so I'm leaning at starting Tate for the early game then deciding between Gore/Lynch for the late game (depending on if Lynch is starting). Thoughts?

Depends on Foster for me. If he's a go, then I'd go with Gore. If there's any doubt about him -- and Kubes might hold him out just as a precautionary measure -- then I'd go with Tate.

With Gore it could get to be a shoot out and if that happens, SF might have to abandon the running game. But no matter what happens, you know Kubes is going to keep feeding the RB.

I'm thinking the same thing, which is why I'm leaning at starting Tate then going from there. Even if Foster starts Tate should still get plenty of carries and that SF-GB game could easily end up being a shootout.

I would bench Lynch, who has always struggled vs the Cards. The Niners will try to control the ball vs the Pack, so Gore should get plenty of carries. Even if Foster is a go, Kubiak will give Tate his share of touches.

How about this. Standard scoring league, who should I have in my flex spot?

Pierre Garcon, or Kendall Wright? I've heard Garcon has developed a decent connection with RGIII. RGIII is untested, but I'd say the same of Jake Locker. The two things that have me leaning to Garcon is that Wright is a rookie, and he's still behind Laurent Robinson (I believe).

peyton manning vs steelers defense (minus clark)
or
joe flacco vs cincinnati

i'm leaning manning because, well it's peyton manning. i also hate qb's against opponents within their division. then again, flacco has looked really good this preseason, especially with the hurry up offense, and i'm betting harbaugh wants to lean on flacco as much as possible early on to build him up this season.

That's a tough call. Flacco had a passer rating over 100 last year against the Bengals and threw 3 TDs to 1 INT but only a total of 400 yards in two games. OTOH, I think that last game was a gimme game and he didn't play much. I wouldn't be surprised if Flacco lights them up.... OTOH, he's going to be throwing a pass or two at Jacoby Jones. So. There you go.

Peyton? He scares me. If it's the old Peyton, then hell yeah. But it's not the old Peyton and these aren't his old receivers and this isn't his old offense. OTOH, he's going to be throwing a pass or two at Joel Dreessen. So. There you go.

I'd go Peyton.

I have Foster and Stephen Jackson right now as my two starting RBs for tomorrow. Standard scoring settings.

I have a slot open, and have narrowed it down to Darren Sproles or Ben Tate. Sproles is heralded as a solid flex starter mostly because of the amount of targets he gets a game, but I'm worried about how much rust he'll have since he didn't play in the preseason. Tate has the potential to rack up pts tomorrow if Foster is given maybe the 2nd half off.

Adrian Peterson or Stevan Ridley?

I'd watch the lineups right up until kickoff. If AD doesn't get held out, then I'd play him. He's had time to heal that knee, so I think this might be gamesmanship.

I'd keep Ridley on "stash" status until I see him get steady carries.

Adrian Peterson or Stevan Ridley?

I'd wait on that decision until just before game time. I've got Peterson in one of my leagues (with Tate) and I'm waiting to see if I need to move Tate up into that RB spot (depending on Foster and Peterson's final status tomorrow.)

They dropped Jones, and if Flacco is a good call over Peyton any week they play the Bengals, or any team with a soft secondary. Him and Torrey Smith have the potential to burn that secondary.

Ridley

The Tacks DL is hurting.

Most RB's take a full yr to recover from an ACL and AD blew out both his ACL/MCL. In short AD has to prove he's healthy to me.

I'm trying to figure out who is my 2nd RB today. I've got MJD vs. Minnesota and Helu vs. New Orelans.

Helu is probably 2nd on the depth chart, but it's been tough trying to get a read on how much time he'll see with the 3 backs theyve got.

MJD won't get the start today coming off his holdout, but I was thinking he probably gets at least as many touches as Helu and is the better player. I had Helu penciled in and finally caved and swap him for MJD last night.

Thoughts?

Everything I've read is that Jennings is going to get the bulk of the carries but MJD will be the 3rd down back, if its PPR you might still get enough value out of starting him.

Scooter

i like MJD. helu is in a mixed backfield with royster and the other guy (drawing a blank), so there's no telling how many touches he'll see until shanahan makes a decision. MJD on the other hand will probably get more touches if the game's close or they fall behind, and will likely be in on long situations for easy yardage.

:thinking:

It would be hard to go wrong with any of them. Though if I had to narrow it down, I would drop Bush against a pretty good Raiders defense, and drop Ryan Matthews who is coming off of injury in a pass heavy offense. Jackson is reliable, but if RG3 performs like he did last week I'd expect to see the Rams playing from behind and being forced to pass the ball plenty.

So I guess my money would be on Spiller granted Freddy is on the bench.

My question: I have Marshawn Lynch @ DAL, CJ2K @ SD and Stevan Ridley @ ARI and I'm deciding which 2 to start (my RB1 is Matt Forte @ GB so he's staying in for sure).

I would go with Jackson & Spiller. With Fred Jackson being out over a month Spiller should get plenty of carries. Ryan Mathews' status for the upcoming game is uncertain right now. If he plays I would question him getting the bulk of the carries for SD.

Patriots should have a huge lead so Ridley is tempting, but I would lean towards Lynch.

Conversely Joe Flacco could easily get away with throwing only 1 TD in a Ravens win.

Thomas. Palmer is still a trainwreck in Oakland and Thomas is going to have angry Manning throwing him the ball. Pittsburgh is absolutely going to cream Oakland and the Denver/Houston game is probably a lot closer of a call.

Well, if it was me, I'd go Spiller, Sproles, and Bush. Spiller and Bush are my automatic choices because I expect them to get a lot of work. I'd go with Sproles although he is a boom or bust option... he is going against the Chiefs and that could turn into a high-scoring affair.

With Doug Martin, I just don't trust the Buccs and their offense. And I don't trust the Cowboys. You never know what you're going to get.

And, for me, I try not to start guys going against the Texans. But Jennings may not even play, he's still questionable. If it was me, I'd try to play Jennings but I'd be monitoring the Inactives right before the Packers game and choose which one at that point.

Go Decker, Seahawks have a stout defense too and you would rather put in a safe option instead of gambling on Jennings on monday (I'm doing the same thing, benching Jennings for Malcom Floyd)

as for the RBs
Sit Martin, the Cowboys run D. is pretty stout this year, Spiller and Sproles have great PPR value, so it's a toss up between Martin and Bush, I personally think Bush has the better shot. Alfred Morris still got good numbers against the Rams last week

Demarius Thomas
D Moore (oakland)
RGIII & Demaryius

I need help at RB. Can't decide who to start. Options are:

CJ Spiller
Darren Sproles

I think Rice and Floyd are the easy choices.

After that, it's almost a coin-flip for me. I'd probably go Maclin because of the problems with the NYG secondary or Hawkins because the Bengals have, at times, put up some points this year. I don't trust the KC offense and I don't like anyone against SF's defense... assuming that last week against the Vikes was a blip.

I'm not a big fan of Cassel or Romeo Crennel. I thought SD was playing pretty well defensively prior to that Atlanta debacle. I'm not expecting a lot of scoring from the Chiefs this week. Bowe has put up big numbers this year against Buffalo and New Orleans which are two of the worst pass defenses in the league.

Sidney Rice is going up against the Rams and the Rams have not exactly been stingy.

BUT... I hadn't actually looked at stats for that and I was going by my gut feeling after having watched a couple of Rams games this year. But after looking up the San Diego stats and the Rams stats, I think I was wrong. The Rams haven't been surrendering many passing TDs this year.

Bowe is probably the better option.

I could use some help. I need to start two RBs, a flex, and two WRs. League is PPR and gives 1 point for every 10 punt return yards and 1 for every 25 kick return yards.

Options:

I see your point. Also i noticed Bowe only makes his pionts in the final mins of the each game. I got lucky last week he had about 1 point at the end of the game but got 7 points in OT... So if they ever have a lead he wont be getting the ball

These are such a Toss-up. I need to trade some so i dont have to decide every week... :thinking:

I would go with Decker, and hope Manning doesn't throw all his passes to Thomas.

R. Wiliams and mcghee.

Seahawks defense is legit. D. Williams competes for carrys with Stewart, Tolbert, and Newton. R. Williams has better odds for success.

McGhee because I think denver's offense will be in the redzone more often and provide better scoring opportunities for him. I also think NE will be up early in the game and guard the pass more as the game goes into the 2nd half.

Could be wrong on both accounts but thats how i'd approach it.

Alex Smith vs. Giants - had a monster week, but will have more trouble against the Giants. I could see the 49ers run the ball a ton.

Cassell is out but I think a lot of kc fans would tell you that helps the passing game. Jones has more weapons to compete with on his team and they are playing a better defense. Bowe and green.

After seeing what Cromartie did to AJ I would be hesitant to start Hartline against him.

I could use a Little help as well... Standard yahoo league:

At HB I will start Mathhews and one if the following:
Bradshaw against Dallas (missed practice again yesterday)
Ridley against StL.
Sproles against Denver

At WR I will start C.Johnson, D. Thomas and one of the following:
Maclin against Atlanta
Lloyd against St.L
Steve Smith (Car) against Chicago

I'd go with Maclin probably but have no idea which HB I should start...

Need two out of the three. AJ has bombed this year, but, blind loyalty sways me, same with OD. BUT, Decker has more TDs than both, and is becoming one of Peyton's fav targets. I feel safe with OD, but, ya just never know when AJs gonna have his breakout game. Schaub is my QB. My gut feeling tells me Kubes will run the ball a lot against the Bills, so just not sure if AJ or OD will get that many points. HELP!!

I think you've got to go Decker at this point. And OD is leading the Texans in TD receptions and is getting almost as many yards/game as AJ. So I'd go with those two: Decker and OD.

But I'd be hoping for AJ to have a breakout game, anyway.

Decker has better quarteback play and is probably safer, that said, fitz is capable of going off and dominating a game with a few scores.

I'd play fitz unless the cards are playing a top tier defense.

Arizona's QB play is just so bad. And even though Green Bay's D isn't great, I'm not confident in Skelton getting him the ball much. I'm fighting for the last playoff spot after starting the season 1-5, so I think I'll go with the safe pick for now.

I'd like some opinions on my QB situation. Starter is Aaron Rodgers, but he's on bye this week. I currently have Christian Ponder as my backup QB, but he has been horrible the last 3 weeks. My options on the waiver wire are:

Ponder vs Detroit
Schaub @ Chicago
Russell Wilson vs NYJ
Sanchez @ Seattle
Tannehill vs Tenn
Hasslebeck @ Miami

Schaub is on waivers until Friday, and I have a waiver in to swap Ponder for him. So I can change that if you guys think someone else would be better. Scoring is 1 point per 20 yards passing, 6 points per passing TD, -1 per INT.

Hasslebeck has been a pretty consistent 200 yards and a TD every week. Schaub gives you the shot at a 300 yard 3 TD game but I could also see 200 yards 0 TD's and a pick.

I would wait and see who clears waivers before making a decision. Waiver position can be gold, I saved mine all season and Saturday someone dropped Darren Sproles in a ppr league before news broke that he might only be out a week or two.

Oh, I'm 8-1 at the top of the league by far. My wavier will be 12 until I lose the #1 spot, because it's always reverse order of the standings each week. No worries there. Hasslebeck is tempting too.

So should I play OD over Decker? I know OD practiced this week, but, still don't know if Kubes will go easy on him due to his hip injury. I was planning to play Decker, but, my "gut" tells me to go with OD. BUT, if we get a sizable lead over the Kittie's, Kubes might sit some of his starters, including AJ and OD.

The Denver/SD game should be a good one, IMHO. PM always seems to pull off some kind of "magic" when he goes to the air. Decker has become a fav target. WHAT TO DO!!!???:overreact:

I don't really like any of the choices. Cromartie is likely to match up on Gibson, Jennings isn't going to run on Houston and they will likely give up on the run early on into the game. Shorts has been good but I worry he might face Joseph.

I would start Shorts and hope Joseph covers Blackmon.

Injuries have taken out 4 of my players(McFaddin,McCoy,Jordy,Harvin), so I've had to scramble (5 trades/pickups) to build something for a playoff run. What's your opinion on...

2nd RB to pair with AP:
Bryce Brown PHI @TB
Johnathon Dwyer PIT v. SD

Pick 2 WRs:
Greg Jennings v. DET
Mike Williams TB v. PHI
Denarius Moore v. DEN
Randall Cobb v. DET

Pick 1 TE:
B Myers v. DEN
K Rudolph v. CHI

Brown is way too hot to bench right now.

Cobb for sure and probably Williams. I don't love Mike Williams but Philly has a terrible pass defense. Moore had a decent game against Denver earlier in the season but I fear he might see a lot of Bailey. Jennings I don't feel like you can trust yet.

Myers is rolling especially if it's ppr but Rudolph has also been a solid start over the last few weeks. You really can't go wrong here but personally I would go Myers.

I am not sure if I should play Denarius Moore tonight. My other WR's are Brandon Marshall (shows questionable but should play), Cecil Shorts (concussion, doesn't look good for him to suit up), and Moore is usually my 3rd WR.

Guys on the bench are:
Maclin
Kendall Wright
Sidney Rice (also questionable)

I have to decide on Moore by tonight. Since he's healthy, I might just have to leave him in, cause if Shorts can't go (and he probably can't) than it's a toss up for one of these three.

Thoughts?

I'd definetly play Moore - the matchup is good, and with Peyton he should get some good points. I'd say he is a much safer bet than Wright or Maclin - and with all the questionables I'd say go for it!

Yeah, kind of where I am leaning. I shouldn't have even typed the name Maclin, I am to scared to play him, that QB situation in Philly has really hurt his fantasy value.

I'll probably replace Shorts with Rice if needed.

I feel you... I have Maclin burning a hole in my bench as well...

Serious question here, first week of playoffs:

Aaron Rodgers vs DET or Matt Schaub @ NE

6 points per passing TD, -2 for INT, no loss on sacks, and 25 yards per point.

Marshall for sure, then Rice/Shorts/Maclin for me, check injury status.

My gut: I don't like Moore vs. Champ, even though Raiders should be behind & throwing. Week 4 was a Broncos blowout, and Moore was benched last week. (Watch him blow up, now!http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e316/Soizic22/a%20smilie/laugh-1.gif)

Aaron Rodgers vs DET or Matt Schaub @ NE
Letmethinkaboutthisforasecond Aaron Rogers.

My top QB this week, and I suggest you don't bench your studs. Good luck.

Definetly Rodgers! Schaub is way too inconsistent points wise - and Rodgers should put up big numbers in what will be a high scoring game...

Well, Schaub has outscored Rodgers in each of the last 3 weeks, so I'm a bit concerned. But as DKR said, "Dance with the one that brought you."

What do you guys think I should do about my terrible RB situation

Dwyer
Turner/Rodgers (I have both)
Felix Jones
Alex Green

Right now, I am leaning toward Dwyer and Rodgers. I think Dwyer is definitely a start especially with big Ben coming back. (Vereen is available as a FA, that's a big crapshoot like Felix Jones IMO). I know nothing about Green.

performance, non-PPR

RB - Bryce Brown. He's had a great start.
WR -Randall Cobb and Mike Williams. Cobb is Rodgers' favorite target.
TE - Brandon Myers. He's a solid tight end compared to Rudolph.

I'd avoid Maclin, he's screwed me all year. Nicks is going to be knicked up, so maybe Tate by default.

I swear the FF Gods hate me. Start Tate... He's done nothing. Maclin goes for 21 and Nicks just caught his first TD in several games. OF course I sat both. FML.

Steve Johnson is more consistent. You'll get at least 5 catches for 60 yards with him every game. Lloyd has a higher ceiling.

Led my league all year, went undefeated in my division, and lost the first playoff game last week. Still ticked off, but, such is life when ya play fantasy! Playin for third place this week, and here's my question.

OD or Decker? I played OD last week and PM targeted Decker all the damn day. OD didn't do squat! Partly why I lost, plus, my opponent go 17 points from his dang KICKER!! Go figure!:headhurts:

After winning my conference I am in the final in a 24 team super league. I need some advice on which qb to start, RG3 or Russell Wilson. Since this was a two conference league, there were two separate drafts and the guy I'm going against is starting Wilson. Should I start Wilson to cancel the points out, or start RG3 and hope he out scores Wilson. Any help appreciated

Should I start Wilson to cancel the points out, or start RG3 and hope he out scores Wilson.Depends on what the rest of his team looks like vs. the rest of your team?

Between the two I prefer RGIII, but you've got other strategy to consider.

Any league playing in week 17 needs a new commissioner. Nobody should be playing FF this week. I also play in a 24 team super league, and won it this year, but before we switched to that format we dropped a week of the regular season to make the Super Bowl week 16 like normal. Too many teams have nothing to play for in week 17 to make it a true FF Super Bowl.

Yea, it's a real crapshoot. I think we are gonna put it to a vote after this season to start the playoffs a week earlier. Thanks for the suggestions, all. I did go with RG3 after all.
