Think this week is a good week to pick him up and start him? Miller is questionable. Was terrible last week too.

Yes, he has won the trust of both Brees and Payton. They've been hyping this kid since the preseason as a big time playmaker and he is now beginning to emerge as a favorable target for Brees. Get him now before he becomes the next Tamme.

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.

I think you have to look at the match ups.

Morris going against Chicago- not a good option
Colston going against Cinci- Must start
Welker going against the Jets- doesn't feel good
Westbrook going against the Pack- iffy, but could be the type of player that causes GB problems.

I think I would go with Colston and Westbrook...


GL in whatever you decide.

Thanks! That is what I was leaning towards. I still may sit Westbrook and start Welker since Revis will likely be on Branch but can't make up my mind.

What does everyone else think?

And JB, I'd rep you if I could but must spread.

After thinking about it, Welker is probably a better play than Westbrook.


GB does not give up much to RB's

Is this PPR? I would go with Welker, gut instinct.



Non PPR. Should I flex: Jonathan Stewart @ SEA or Brandon Jackson vs. SF

The league I am in is not PPR.

For you, I'd lean Jackson but maybe Stewart is finally going to start playing decent ball. He'd look pretty good last week. Tough decision.

Floyd is a good receiver and Rivers has been tossing the ball around all season so I couldn't fault going with Floyd. But he's coming back from an injury and he hasn't exactly been lighting it up since he got back. Meanwhile Holmes has 4 TD's in the last 4 games. Holmes is probably the safe bet but sometimes it's best to just go with your gut.

Pick 5 (two RBs, two WRs, and a flex)

Arian Foster
Jamaal Charles
LeGarrette Blount
Brian Westbrook
Anthony Dixon
Calvin Johnson
Wes Welker
Marquise Colston
Michael Crabtree
Brandon Marshall

The obvious starts, IMO, are Foster, Charles, and Megatron. Having trouble selecting my #2 WR and flex.

Thanks in advance!

Can't argue with this but I would give serious consideration to Blount @WSH. Sounds like a good problem to have.

I read somewhere (PFW maybe? or PFT?) that Blount's role was going to be reduced and he won't be getting the reps.

From Rotoworld

Quote:
According to the St. Petersburg Times' Stephen F. Holder, the Bucs coaches are "puzzled" by LeGarrette Blount's occasional lack of success in short-yardage situations.

Holder writes that problem is not due to an "inability to power through defenders but rather from indecision at the line of scrimmage." Coach Raheem Morris said Earnest Graham might get a look on short-yardage plays. "We may have to look into a different direction in those situations but while we're still working with (Blount) at the same time," Morris said. This could certainly hurt the rookie's scoring upside going forward.
That really doesn't worry me too much, especially the way it's worded.

Here are some different sites thoughts:

http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/blog...fantasy-292810

Quote:
Blount's alma mater, Oregon, is one win away from the National Championship. This week, the rookie rusher could bring his owners one step closer to their own trophy destiny. Similar in style and substance as Christian Okoye Tecmo Super Bowl '91, the bulldozing back totaled only the third 80-plus yard game against the Falcons this season, rushing for 103 yards on 20 carries. Despite the youngster's extraordinary peformance, Raheem Morris was displeased with Blount's execution in critical short-yardage situations. So upset was the head coach, he suggested Earnest Graham(notes) could overtake such duties. When he chooses to remove the clogs and focuses running full-steam downhill, Blount is almost impossible to stop. His combination of size and speed is devastating. Washington will soon know. Over the 'Skins' past eight games, they've conceded five 100-yard rushing games and nine TDs to RBs. Don't worry about Graham's possible expanded role. In a must-win game for Tampa, expect the rhino to spike the competition.

Fearless Forecast: 19 carries, 96 rushing yards, 1 touchdown, 15 fantasy points
http://www.footballdocs.com/fantasy-...start-sit.html

Quote:
LeGarrette Blount, RB, TB - The Redskins looked like a bunch of little kids out there playing against grown men last week. The Giants had their way with the Redskins, and they just pounded the ball on the ground at will. Blount has some very nice power, and he would love nothing more than to help his team bounce back this week against a floundering Washington team. Start Blount in most formats.
http://fantasynews.cbssports.com/fan...arrette-blount

Quote:
Blount looking at great matchup: The Redskins run defense has crumbled in the last two games, a perfect opportunity for Tampa Bay RB LeGarrette Blount to have a big game Week 14 in Washington. Washington is coming off a loss to the Giants in which they allowed 103 yards and two touchdowns to Brandon Jacobs on eight carries and 97 yards and two more scores to Admad Bradshaw on 25 touches. The Redskins have allowed the opposing team's running backs to rack up at least 100 yards in five straight games and the Vikings and Giants scored six total touchdowns against them the last two weeks
