Didn't see this one, so here goes. Try to give as much info as possible

I have 1 flex spot open on my team. Here is who I can choose between:
Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts against Houston Texans (away)
Joseph Addai, RB, Colts against Houston Texans (away)
Ryan Grant, RB, Packers against NO Saints (home)
Percy Harvin, WR, Vikings against SD (away)

I think you have to go with Wayne regardless of if Manning plays. Even if Collins is throwing to him, he should still be the #1 target and get plenty of chances to score points for you. Grant would be my second choice after seeing the Saints run D in preseason.

Ryan

agreed on Wayne.

I'm on a fantasy football website called fantasysharks.com and I think it's one of the best sources of info out there. There are some good articles, but they've got forums with player news, who should I start, waiver/free agent moves...anything. A lot of information comes from people in the NFL cities so there's a little more in-depth info than I find on some sites.

Not spamming...just letting you all know about a site that's helped me quite a bit in the fantasy football realm.

Here's my dilemma for a W/R/T flex spot:

Starters:
QB: Matt Ryan (Atl - QB)
RB1: Ray Rice (Bal - RB)
RB2: Michael Turner (Atl - RB)
WR1: Roddy White (Atl - WR)
WR2: Vincent Jackson (SD - WR)
TE: Zach Miller (Sea - TE)
DST: Chargers

Flex:

Marques Colston (NO - WR)
Ben Tate (Hou - RB)
Greg Olsen (Car - TE)
Fred Jackson (Buf - RB)
Reggie Bush (Mia - RB)
LaDainian Tomlinson (NYJ - RB)

I'm leaning towards Reggie Bush, but I'm willing to take suggestions :)

Edit: 1 PPR

Non PPR - Wayne or Grant. Probably Wayne though. Even though our defense was revamped, our corners are still young and can be had.

Again, PPR or no?

I would go with Olsen. Cards gave up 242.6 passing yards per game last season. They lost DRC but gained Patrick Peterson. Also Newton will probably use Olsen as his safety valve alot.

NE is good against the run so Bush isnt that attractive, unless its a PPR league.

Fred Jackson is going @ KC who is middle of the pack against the run.

Bottom line: I would go with Olsen or Jackson if you are afraid of Cam Newton.

I would have a hard time keeping Tate out week one. Probably a riskier play but could pay huge dividends. If not Tate I would go with Bush.

League 2: Bradford vs. PHI, Kolb vs. CAR

League 1: I'd go with either Moss, or Wells. I'd be taking a wait and see approach to see how Britt Gels with hasselback, and I think New Englandwould be a bad matchup for Bush this week.

League 2: Kolb vs. Car. Bradford will be throwing at Nnamdi, DRC, and Asante Samuels

It's 1PPR, so I have Bush in there right now. The concern with Olsen is that he has to compete with Jeremey Shockey for targets, so I'm not sure he will get enough attention. AZ is a crappy defense though, so maybe he is worth it...

I like Wells @ Carolina and Kolb against Carolina. I don't expect either team to have much defense, so it could be a shootout. Fitz is bound to get some TDs against the Panthers.

Do individual players get return yards?

If not, I'd drop Hester from the conversation. Bears are weirdly devoted to Roy Williams.

Yeah they do get return yards - but not as much points as for receiving yards (I think 10 return yards equal 1 receiving yard).

My current top three backs are Ray Rice, Rashard Mendenhell, and Darren McFadden. I clearly went RB heavy in my draft. Rice and Mendenhall are my initial starters and McFadden is my flex.

I also drafted Ben Tate to get him out of the hands of the guy who grabbed Foster, but now I have this rather tough problem on my hands. Let's say Foster and Ward both sit against Miami...

Which 3 of the 4 do I start?
Ray Rice @ Tennessee
Rashard Mendenhall vs Seattle
Darren McFadden @ Buffalo
Ben Tate @ Miami

Wow, that is quite a dilemma, but a good one to have. I think you must start Ray Rice and DMC given their production this past week. RR against the Steelers for 30 points means he should do just about as well against the Tits. Tate or Mendenhall...

The Bills allowed 6 YPC against the Chiefs this past week: NFL Team stats (http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?seasonType=REG&offensiveStatisticCategory=null&d-447263-n=1&d-447263-o=2&d-447263-p=1&d-447263-s=RUSHING_AVERAGE_YARDS&tabSeq=2&season=2011&role=OPP&Submit=Go&archive=false&conference=null&defensiveStatisticCategory=RUSHING&qualified=true)

The Dolphins 4.8, but the Pats didn't run much.

I'd go with Tate just for the Texans sake :)

I have a question regarding WR's. Which three should I start?

Brandon Marshall vs. Houston
A.J. Green @ Denver
Braylon Edwards vs. Dallas
Robert Meachem vs. Chicago
Jacoby Jones @ Miami

I'm thinking of going with Marshall, Meachem & Jones, but I wanted some advice first.

AJ Green's big play came when the Browns were still in their defensive huddle, don't expect Denver to make that mistake, he'll have to earn the points he gets this week. Braylon Edwards is intriguing because of the Dallas Pass D. But Frank Gore, ruined my fantasy week so I'm down on all 9ers for the time being. I agree with your three

As for me.
I'm strongly considering starting Addai this week vs. Cleveland. He would take Beanie Wells vs. Washington Redskins. Wells is the more reliable play, but in my league its important to score the most points, and I think Addai will have a huge game as the Colts will rely on him more and the Browns run D was soft vs. Cinci, its a risky play, and pretty much the only game I'm considering Addai for so far this season

I would go with Beanie Wells. He had a nice game last week (112 total yards & a td), and until the Colts learn to be successful running the ball I would stay away from Addai if you've got better options.

Definitely Marshall and Meachem given the rest of their teams at the moment. I'd be tempted to go with Jones after watching that pisspoor Phins defense last night. I don't think Edwards will get many chances against a decent defense in the Cowboys. And I would avoid all Bengals besides Benson :)

Meachem & Jones should also be moving up their teams depth charts after injuries to Walter & Colston, and are both on good passing teams. Both Green & Edwards didn't do much last week and their offenses are a little more questionable.

I say Marshall, Meachem, and Jones. With Walter going down Jones fantasy value could increase dramatically. Plus Brady just dropped five hundo on the Fins.

Play Flacco for sure this week.

So amazingly, I still won this week even though Big Ben put on about as shitty a performance as a QB can thanks to LeSean McCoy, Run DMC, and Sea Bass.

So here is my minor predicament: do I give Big Ben another chance?

Ben Roesthlisberger vs SEA
Kyle Orton vs CIN

Also, I need to start two RBs, a flex, and two WRs. Who should I start?

LeSean McCoy @ ATL
Darren McFadden @ BUF
Ahmad Bradshaw vs STL
Larry Fitzgerald @ WSH
Mike Williams @ MIN
Reggie Bush vs HOU
Santana Moss vs ARI
Robert Meachem vs CHI

Thanks!!!!

I think for sure you go with McCoy, DMC, Bradshaw, and Fitz. After that I would be looking at Moss and Meachem. I would probably go with Moss for the simple fact that Chicago dismantled ATL while ARI let a rookie throw for 422 yards against them in his first game ever.

Just now joining this conversation.

Here's how my Week 1 went down for me:

1. Matt Ryan sucked BAD at my QB1.

2. Andre Johnson did well for me at WR1.

3. Roddy White (who I drafted in round 2) was absent, like Matt Ryan was.

4. Beanie Wells delivered for me at RB1.

5. Derrick Ward did somewhat OK at RB2. I benched Shonn Greene in favor of Ward, so I made the right move there.

6. Ben Tate was great for me at the flex. I originally had Darren Sproles in that spot.

7. OD underperformed for me at TE. I expect him to rebound well in Week 2.

8. Rackers got me 10 points as my K.

9. Giants D/ST was pedestrian, which I expected.

The major headache, for me, is that I wasted a round 4 pick on Shonn Greene as my first RB taken. Thank goodness I picked up Beanie Wells and Tate. But Foster will return soon and life won't be fun for me at the RB spot with really only Beanie Wells as a consistent producer at RB.

I went heavy on WR-WR-QB in rounds 1, 2, and 3.

I somehow was able to get Flacco in like round 6, which is crazy IMO that he was still there. I have a feeling Flacco is my starting QB in Week 2.

Matt Ryan and Roddy White's troubles with Chicago almost cost me a Week 1 win. I expect them to get better, though, as the season progresses. Until they catch fire, I'm going with Flacco.

Anybody want Shon Greene? Just give me positive rep and I'll send him to you. That's all I'm asking for. Shon Greene won't be a Jets RB next year, IMO. I think he's a goner.

Mr. White
09-13-2011, 10:44 PM

I drafted Shonn Greene last year in the 2nd round. Ruined my season. Dude was an albatross. Couldn't trade him because nobody else was stupid enough and couldn't drop him because he was a 2nd rounder.

I'm actually trying to trade for Green in my money league, his owner is waaay down on him and I'll probably be able to pawn off Orton to get him, then I'll drop C.J. Spiller (man I was wrong about him I just went to a Bills MB too, for "research" and they really aren't expecting much from him) and pick up Beck. Beck has excellent matchup in week 4 and 11. STL (injured backfield) and Dal (injured backfield again, high potent shootout). While Matt Schaub will play the Steelers, and have a bye during those weeks. Orton has bad matchups those weeks (GB and NYJ) but the guy who owns green is stuck with Eli (Bwahahahhahaa) and Sanchez (not bad, not great either). My other Running Backs are Ray Rice, Beanie Wells, Frank Gore (damn you), Cadillac Williams, and Deji Karim (we get points for KR yards), Cadillac Williams actually has atrocious matchups for the next few weeks, and Steven Jackson will probably be back soon enough, I'll likely end up dropping him too, and Frank Gore is probably not going to crack my lineup again untill he shows me something.

tl;dr I plan on swapping a QB who will have bad matchups when I would actually play him over schaub for a RB who might crack my flex spot during games I'm certain the Jets will be in cruise control

Brandon420tx
09-15-2011, 04:22 PM
The trade didn't go through (he actually did a counter offer, Schaub for Green, I rejected it with alot of hahahaha in the reject message) I talked to him at work and he says he has Orton rated in the same teir as Eli and Sanchez, the guy is fuggin nuts. I went ahead and picked up grossman, and I'll hold on to orton for one more week, to see if he changes his mind, (I doubt it) then drop him.

I decided to stay with Beanie this week. I went and analyzed all the runs the Giants had against the skins, and Bradshaw, who is more similar to Beanie than Jacobs, is did well enough, plus I think the Skins are going to drop their safeties back over Fitz anyway and open up some room for Wells

Alright fellas, heres what I got:

Owen Daniels vs. Miami

OR

Aaron Hernandez vs. San Diego

OD had a piss poor game last week but I expect him to get involved early and often against a Miami defense that gave up 30 FP to the TE position last week.

On the other hand, Hernandez is a WR trapped in a TE's body and more importantly he has the trust of the greatest QB to ever play the game. Brady seems to spread it to his TE's very frequently.

It seems I have a case of good and better. Not a bad position to be in for my fantasy team but need some thoughts on this.

Thanks in advance.

Hernendez for sure. The Texans appear to be doing a TE by committee setup this year, somewhat like the Patriots, but the Patriots have better pass-catching TEs and a better QB. With Foster back, OD will probably only get 2-4 targets like he did against the Colts. Walter got one catch last week, that's it. Not a lot more to spread around, unless the Texans are playing from behind.

Man, you are REALLY down on OD.

My prediction is you are going to be dead wrong. He is our second best receiver, bar none, and the only reason he didn't get many targets last week is Schaub sucked when he was actually throwing the ball and the Colts sucked even worse.

Start OD. I have OD and Jermaine Gresham (who has the skills to be a top TE ala Vernon Davis and seems to have the trust of Dalton), but no way am I giving up on OD yet. What I find funny is some people seem to be higher on Jimmy Graham than OD, yet Brees spreads the ball around WAY more than Schaub. You can't really count on any of the Aints receivers.

Yes, start Owen. I'm not saying he most certainly will score more points than Hernandez but NO WAY does OD have another week like last week. If I'm wrong, Dutch, I will certainly eat me some crow and ***** and moan about drafting Owen.

I thought you stuck to the Texans Talk forum slik. I think Hernandez is the safer bet here. OD is fighting for looks with Dreessen and Casey plus what appears to be a juggernaut of a running game. I think it's close but I would start Hernandez.

Part of me wants to reciprocate the fat jerk comment....so I will.

Man, you are REALLY down on OD.

My prediction is you are going to be dead wrong. He is our second best receiver, bar none, and the only reason he didn't get many targets last week is Schaub sucked when he was actually throwing the ball and the Colts sucked even worse.

Start OD. I have OD and Jermaine Gresham (who has the skills to be a top TE ala Vernon Davis and seems to have the trust of Dalton), but no way am I giving up on OD yet. What I find funny is some people seem to be higher on Jimmy Graham than OD, yet Brees spreads the ball around WAY more than Schaub. You can't really count on any of the Aints receivers.

Yes, start Owen. I'm not saying he most certainly will score more points than Hernandez but NO WAY does OD have another week like last week. If I'm wrong, Dutch, I will certainly eat me some crow and ***** and moan about drafting Owen.

Haha, it's all good. I have OD and Hernendez in one my leagues (Brady at QB) and I had OD up last week. Still won the game, but 20 points versus 2... Eh I'll go with Hernendez on a pass first team, with decent WRs over OD on a run-first team with lots of other receiving options.

OD has lots of time left to make some plays. But Hernendez has hit the TE benchmark for points for me this week. I always like my TEs to get about 8-10 points a game to keep them around. Everything beyond that is gravy :) OD will get more chances this game as he has 2 targets so far, but I just don't trust him to break out and get a TD every other week.

Dutchrudder
09-19-2011, 10:02 AM
So here's the deal with the Texans TE versus the Pats TE. The Texans had at most a two score lead during the entire game, but still needed to produce every time the offense got the ball. The Pats at best had a 14 point lead during the game, which means they needed to keep producing as well. In the end, Brady had 40 pass attempts to Schaub's 29, but the Texans had 36 rush attempts to the Pats 24. This is what I mean by a run-first team, which is what the Texans have become. Schaub's probably not going to throw 550 times this year, and that's a good thing for Texan fans, but not fantasy owners.

Individually, Hernendez caught 7 of 8 passes for 67 yards and a TD. OD caught 3 of 5 for 25 and a TD. OD was the second most targeted player on the Texans yesterday, whereas Hernendez was the third behind Welker and Branch. It may come down to playing matchups each week, but I see Hernendez as the guy with more upside going forward. He's going to get a lot more chances to make plays than OD.

Most people are thinking this is going to help Gronkowski's value but I'm not so sure. He was already the number 1 TE in FF (in my league at least) and it's not like they share time in the same role. They were often on the field at the same time and I've seen them line them both up all over the place. Now I'm not saying that this is going to hurt Gronkowski's value, just that it may not help as much as some are projecting.

It depends on who you like more, Decker or Moore. Either that, or dump one of your mediocre backs (depends on how many RB's can start in your league). I'd only use one slot for on a pure spec/upside player. If you think Daniels will produce I wouldn't make a move on Gronkowski. If you think he will continue to be Clark Kent, I'd make a move. Otherwise, start OD and you will have Hernandez in reserve for the playoffs. Dump Hernandez now and someone who needs a te will likely pick him up.

To extrapolate though, if James Casey has a halfway decent game and Clark continues to not produce it might be time. Colts are just having one of those seasons we, as Texans fans, have all hoped for. Based on matchups, you should start Clark, but you might want to be checking over your waiver wire to see if any good ones are just hanging out.

Through 3 games, Cincy has the 3rd best defense overall, and Miami has the third worst defense overall. Cincy 5th best passing D, Miami 29th best. I'd play the matchup and take Rivers @ home over Fitzy @ Cincy. I love playing the matchups myself :)

Choose two:

Stephen Jackson vs WAS (limited practice)
Willis McGahee @ GB
LeGarette Blount vs IND
Joseph Addai @ TB

Was thinking Blount and Addai but meh.

Choose 1:

Robert Meachem @ JAX
Marques Colston @ JAX
Dez Bryant vs DET
AJ Green vs BUF

I'd go with Blount for sure, and Jackson if he's healthy. Otherwise McGahee over Addai IMO.

Is Colston even playing? I thought he was out another 2 weeks. In any case, I'd go with Meachum and Green over Bryant. Bills D has looked bad so far, but not great against the pass. Detroit has a better pass defense, likely due to all the pressure from the front 7. I expect them to roll over the Cowboys and knock Romo out of the game :)

Miami has played NE, Hou, and Cle
Cincinnati has played Denver, SF, and Cle.

I don't know how much weight I can put into the Bengals 5th ranked passing defense considering who they have played.

I love Rivers, I've had him on my teams for years but it's tough to keep starting him when he is currently sitting right behind Tarvaris Jackson and Alex Smith in fantasy points.

He has 5 TD's and 6 INT's right now and that's against an extremely soft pass defense schedule. The teams he has played rank 17th, 28th, 30th, and 32 defending the pass.

I'm giving him the nod this week but I'm starting to wonder if something is wrong with Philip Rivers.

Interesting. He has scored 23, 24, 6, and 21 points in my fantasy league. Not typical Rivers numbers, but still upper tier fantasy numbers, especially if he hadn't had such a piss poor game in week 3. I agree that his TD to INT ratio isn't what you'd typically expect out of Rivers, but I certainly wouldn't hesitate starting him when he has put up 20+ points in 3 out of 4 weeks.

Curious who I should start though. I need to pick a starter at the flex as well as WR2. Lesean McCoy and Run-DMC are locks at RB 1 & 2 and Fitz is a lock at WR1.

So here are my options for the flex and WR2:

J-Stewart vs NO
Michael Bush @ HOU (already starting McFadden so I'm leaning towards no with him)
Eric Decker vs SD
Jordy Nelson @ ATL

I could also potentially drop Aaron Hernandez (as I am feeling pretty good about OD) and sign one of Jacoby Jones, Victor Cruz, David Nelson, or Pierre Garcon.

Thoughts? Thanks!!!

I would go J-Stewart and Jordy Nelson...Stewart is being more productive fantasy wise than DeAngelo (plus he is their receiving back); Jordy Nelson is solid but the Pack have plenty of weapons.

I'm kinda in the same boat b/c my lineup is decimated by the bye week...my choices at flex are: Nate Washington (Titans #1 receiver against the best pass defense), J-Stewart (dual threat esp if Panthers get down early and they go str8 to passing) or Thomas Jones (vs a weak run D)...what ya think

Detroit has actually let TE's score on them somewhat this year, and I don't know what to think of Baltimore, or Joel Dreesen having a 100 yard game while Owen Daniels is perfectly healthy.

Also I have 3 RB's and 2 spots. I have no idea:

LeGarrett Blount vsNO
Joseph Addai @CIN
Stephen Jackson @GB

Probably should wait and see if Addai and Blount are even playing in their game, but the best RB left on the waiver wire is Kendall Hunter, then Isaac Redman, then Ryan Torain.

Not a bad deal with the TE's, but I would go with VD on this one. More likely to get points given the matchup for the Texans. Either one should be fine though, just a matter of betting on who will get the ball more.

I hear Blount is doubtful, Addai probably isn't worth it. If SJax is back, I think he may be OK. If it comes to picking off the wire, I would go with Torrain as I think he has the most upside of the bunch.

I agree 100%. Dont be surprised if you pick wrong on the TE's but its not a bad problem to have. Torrain looks like the starter "for now". Addai, is he even starting? Blount I hear is injured. Plan on being without both those guys. go with Jackson and Torrain.

Or grab Blount and Addai's backup as they will get the bulk of the load. But Washington is playing the Eagles and they plan old suck on defense. Yeah they have nice corners, but who are their linebackers? And their Dline?

I would grab Painter. I did in one league that I am light at QB. He has scored 17 and 19 points. He seems to know the system and has 614 yards with 4TD's 0 INT's.

I also like Tebow. I know he is on a bye, but if he runs in a TD each week he might have some upside to him ala Cam Newton. Matt Ryan has been a total bust this year. I would consider dropping him. Its not like he is missing any weapons. They added Jones and he has just been awful.

Basically I would drop Ryan before I dropped Dalton. Dalton and AJ green seem to have a love connection going on.

I'm still holding on to Reggie Bush for some reason, so I could drop him for Painter. Cincy seems to have a good defense, so I would probably want to start Dalton this week anyways. But Dalton's bye is week 7, and Painter plays @NO that week and Ryan is @Det.

Jackson and Forte are must starts. You could make the case for both Turner or Torain. If you have a good feeling about Torain then go with it.

I would stay away from Ryan. What has he done to make you think he will do well this week? Alex Smith is on the road against a good defense. Joe Flacco makes the most sense. He is at home. Texans lost Williams. They have a good running game to keep our D honest. I think the play is Joe Flacco.

So I'm about to be 5-1 in my big money league, but this week a few interesting drops were made. Someone dropped Lagarette Blount, I'm guessing due to injury, and another guy dropped Mike Tolbert. My team is pretty solid at RB with Fred Jackson, Ray Rice, Michael Turner and Marshawn Lynch as the fill-in, but I'm always looking to get better and prevent other teams from getting better. I'm going to try to grab one of them and drop Robert Meechem who I no longer need now that Colston is back to 100%. But who's the better pickup, Blount or Tolbert?

Well, Meachem isn't going to do anything for me now that Colston is back, so I'm just looking to pad my bench. The #2 team has Ryan Matthews as his #1 back, so I'm thinking it would be a good strategic move to grab Tolbert to sabotage his team if Matthews goes down. Either way, these guys won't be starting for me unless one of my 3 RBs misses a game.

Info on Blount's injury:

LeGarrette Blount is optimistically listed as doubtful to play in week six because of his knee injury. And the exact nature of that knee injury will probably keep him sidelined through the Buccaneers' bye in week eight. Sources of out Tampa reported on Thursday that Blount has a torn MCL. Such injuries usually keep players out of action for two-to-six weeks. The initial reaction has been that the team will hold Blount out through the bye and that he won't play again until week nine versus the New Orleans Saints.
http://www.fftoolbox.com/football/nfl_news.cfm?news_id=3471

Looks like he's a 'wait-and-see' guy. I'll put in a request for Tolbert first, then Blount. I don't need the bench spots for anything else anyways.

Tough choice. Given their pass defenses, they appear to be nearly equal, and both QBs have not been consistent in their production. I'd actually go with Hasselback on this one, just because he's coming off a bye week and is at home. Schaub often gets rattled in away games, so he's more likely to have a down week, especially without AJ.

It's ok, I'm up by 15 right now, with Ray Rice and Billy Cundiff to go after Colston is done. The opponent has Sproles and MJD, so I think I'm in good shape.

Check that, Colston just got another TD...

Tim Hightower's out for the season, Santana Moss out 5-7 weeks:

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins running back Tim Hightower is out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, and receiver Santana Moss will miss 5-7 weeks with a broken bone in his left hand.

The Redskins have now lost five offensive starters to significant injuries in the last two games.

Hightower's knee buckled during a third-quarter run in Sunday's 33-20 loss to Carolina.

Moss was hurt in the first half of the game. He had surgery Monday.

Washington lost tight end Chris Cooley, left tackle Trent Williams and left guard Kory Lichtensteiger in the previous week's loss to Philadelphia. Lichtensteiger is out for the season with torn knee ligaments, Cooley is sidelined indefinitely with a broken finger, and Williams is week-to-week with a sprained ankle.

Yeah, Colston and Sproles cancelled out at 28 points a piece, Rice and Cundiff combined for 9 points and MJD got 10, so I won by 5 taking a 6-1 record for sole possession of first place by two games :D

This week I'll drop Lynch and pick up either Murray (not likely) or Jake Ballard (possible). I need a TE for week 9 anyways, so Ballard can fill in then and be my flex this week. Hopefully I get him. Also trying to grab the Buffalo defense in place of the Titans D.

I hate that one of my leagues only has one RB position then the RB/WR position. I have Ray Rice as my top RB along with Darren Sproles and Frank Gore. Both are going against weak opponents so it's hard to decide who to start. Leaning towards Gore.

I may just try and trade Ray Rice for a better QB than I have. The league is edited so that it's 1 point for every 10 passing yards than the usual 25, so QB's usually have a lot of points. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the guy I usually go with.

If I'm reading you right, you need to sit one of those 4 guys. I think Nicks and Nelson are must starts this week. The matchups are just too good and Rodgers is playing lights out, no Jennings may help too. If McFadden is still out, I'd go with Bush over Fitz.

You read it right. Yeah, I have been a fool to not start Nelson more, but Fitz has had some huge weeks. He actually has been pretty consistent. It's just a lot of games he gets me 7-12 points (.5 PPR) whereas Nelson has gotten more yardage (I think) and TDs but less receptions. I am leaning Nelson and Nicks but since I am basically guaranteed to win round 1 of my playoffs (I won by over 100 last week), I may leave things as is and see how much usage Nelson gets with Jennings gone. Without Jennings to take some heat off Nelson, I just wonder if he will be as dominant.

I went with Marshall. I'm currently up by 32 but my opponent has Frank Gore playing tonight. Think I'll win? A win here puts me in the championship.

Unless you have wacky scoring like 10 points per TD, I think you're fine. Gore didn't even get that many carries last week. He had 10 and Hunter had 8. 0 receptions. Should be an easy win.

Leading by 80 points (thanks Megatron and Reggie) while my opponent has a kicker and San Fran's defense left.

I think I'm safe

I hope so. I'm the only Texan fan in that league and it's going to be real nice to not only have my favorite team in the playoffs, but to beat all those cowboy fans in their fantasy league after only my 3rd year of even playing fantasy football.

I made it to the SHIP. Here are my players. Who do you think I should start?

QBs

Drew Brees vs ATL
Matt Hasselbeck vs. Jville
Matt Moore @ New England

RBs
Ray Rice vs. Cleveland
Beanie Wells @ Cincy
Ben Tate @ Indy

WRs
Jordy Nelson vs. Chicago
Julio Jones @ New Orleans
Brandon Marshall @ New England
Jabar Gaffney vs. Minnesota
Vincent Jackson @ Detroit

TEs
Jimmy Graham vs. ATL
Greg Olsen vs. TB

Oh I also have Matt Bryant for my kicker and Chicagos D. Haven't replaced my D all year but Chicago plays Green Bay. Should I make a switch?

Bolded assuming your lineup is that way.

Why no Jordy Nelson?

Why no Jordy Nelson?

After last week against the Chiefs? That was a baaaaaaaaaad game for them...

The Packers might not even need to win that game or next week. They hold the tiebreaker over the Saints for #1 seed, they didn't play SF so that goes to SOV. The Packers schedule is almost guaranteed to be stronger than SF, so even if they lose out from here they probably still get the #1 seed in the NFC. I don't expect Rodgers to play much if that is the case, probably sit Nelson, Driver and Finley too. No reason to risk guys on meaningless games. Plus the Bears are still in the Wild Card hunt, their defense will be playing like the game matters. I'd avoid Packers this week if possible.

I'm in the championship game in my fantasy league and I need help deciding which running back to start: Steven Jackson (vs. Steelers) or C.J. Spiller (vs. Denver). Spiller has been playing well and had a big game last week in terms of fantasy points. Steven Jackson has been reliable but he goes up against the Steelers defense. Thanks in advance for any insight you guys might be able to provide!

If it's PPR, CJ is certainly the better choice. I'm starting him over Michael Turner in one of my PPR leagues. He was the focus of the offense, and even when the Bills were down 2 score he got a lot of catches. Denver's D is good, but I don't think they will shut him down.

I'm sorry but I don't know what PPR stands for. But either way, I'm leaning towards C.J. myself. Thanks for the input.

I lost by 1 point to a guy I beat the division out for, I was 11-3, he was 10-4. I should have started Miles Austin and I would have won, Nelson and Welker were huge let downs.

Beanie Wells was limite practice but they think he will still play Sunday
Vincent Jackson didn't practice but they think he will play Sunday.
Brandon Marshall has a knee problem, didn't practice and there are only 4 people on their injury list including him. WOnder if he's gonna play.

PPR = Point Per Reception. Which means that if a player makes a catch/reception he gets a point. It inflates WRs and TEs stats and makes them more competitive since they typically don't get as many opportunities to get yards as RBs do. Also makes pass catching RBs like Sproles, Bush and Foster much more valuable.
