I'd go with Big Ben. With the way that Steelers D is playing right now, I'm not even sure Brees can put up decent numbers against them.

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)
I think I would go with Blount, Calvin, Colston, and Evans.

I predict we run the ball like crazy again. OD could be our main go-to receiver though. Tough call. Keller started out great, and I'd be very tempted to start him though.

So what do you guys think? I need to start two RBs, two WRs, and a flex. My options are:

Arian Foster
Jamaal Charles
Beanie Wells
Mike Tolbert
Calvin Johnson
Brandon Marshall
Wes Welker (has been TERRIBLE)
Mike Wallace
Michael Crabtree

This baffles me. Spiller had 7 carries and averaged 4.7 per. Jackson averaged 3.2 per carry. Why don't they get CJ the ball more? Why use the #9 overall pick on a guy that you aren't going to let touch the ball? Buffalo has got a lot of problems going on over there.

Thanks for the rep and yeah that would probably be a good decision. Tolbert will only have value if Mathews gets hurt again IMO.

Is it a PPR league?

I can't argue with DC's logic below, but I just got a feeling OD is going to go off. It's just a hunch though.

I would ride the hot hand in Wallace.



Daniels looked good against KC but that's the only good fantasy week he has had this season. Lewis lost his starting QB and his backup so there is a lot of uncertainty there.

I would go with Keller for sure.

Bolded for starters, underlined for flex. I'm not sure of Tolbert's status, but I'd lean toward him.

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.

If I drop Tolbert and bring in Blount, think Blount is worth starting at the flex?

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.

Gaffney, Jacoby or Welker?

Depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a possible boom or bust, go with Welker. I have him on my team as well, and he has definitely sucked the last few weeks from a fantasy perspective. But as we saw in week 1, he can really make things happen.

If you are just looking for a consistent, guaranteed 5-8 points, I'd go with Gaffney.

You in a PPR league?
