    I have not seen this Thread set-up yet so i figured ill start it out.

    Post your roster question and get some educated guesses

    And Specify PPR or NON PPR


    Start (1) Flex

    Brian Hartline vs Colts
    Lamar Miller vs Colts (he had 3 yrds vs Browns but COlts gave up 173 yrds rushing last game)
    Brent Celek vs Chargers
    Andre Roberts vs Lions

    I think it might be to soon to give-up on Miller but who do yall think?

    I´d go with Celek. Chargers looked bad against OD and Graham and Eagles have a lightning quick offense.

    Here is my dilemma (standard scoring league):

    Pick 2 out of 4 HBs:

    Ray Rice vs. Cleveland (he is my safe pick)
    Alfred Morris vs. GB
    Demarco Murrey vs. KC
    Darren McFadden vs. JAX

    Pick 1 out of 3 TEs (yeah, I have 3 TEs right now - picked up julio Thomas on waiver wire - will try to trade one of them for a WR)

    Jared Cook vs. Atl
    Jermichael Finley vs. WSH
    Julio Thomas vs. NYG

    Who would you pick?

    I wouldn't give up on Miller but I would make him prove he deserves a starting spot before I put him back in my lineup.

    Hartline looks to be a great play in PPR leagues this season and a solid play in non ppr's.

    Celek I'm still not sold on, lot's of mouths to feed in Philly.

    Andre Roberts is going to catch a lot of balls this season and I could see a shootout vs Detroit.


    Long story short, I would probably go with Roberts followed by Hartline.

    I would go Rice and Morris.

    Doesn't look like you can really go wrong at TE, I honestly don't know who I would start. Thomas probably offers the highest upside but is also probably the riskiest play.

    * It's Julius Thomas

    I would go with Rice & Morris at RB and Finley at TE.

    Scoring system -- PPR or standard -- makes a difference.

    For mine it's standard. No PPR, 10 yards per point, 6 for TD.

    Pick 1 WR:

    Greg Jennings @ Chi
    Brian Hartline @ Ind
    Alshon Jeffery vs. Min

    After watching Christian Ponder look terrible I'm wary of Greg Jennings, especially against two corners as good as Tillman and Tim Jennings. I think in this case nobody would chastise you for going with the hot hand in Hartline for this one week while you keep an eye on Jennings.

    Standard Scoring, No PPR

    MJD @ OAK
    Lamar Miller @Indy
    Antonio Brown @CIN

    I'm leaning MJD but that first outing against KC was rough. Conversely, I believe Gabbert isn't playing this week which means I think they go heavy on the running (or maybe they don't who the hell knows).

    Thanks guys, repped the ones that helped me.

    For your problem I´d also go with Hartline - his numbers will go down some, but I wouldn`t trust the other two...

    @bOng

    Definetly MJD. OAK`s D should help a lot. I wouldn`t go near Miller right now - Antonio Brown could be good as well, but MJD looks like a safe bet!

    Rice and Morris (Rice had a good game against GB and with Morris i think you can't go wrong with that choice)


    and Thomas, NYG can't cover TE in the Redzone...




    I like Hartline out of that group... he is Miami's safety net since they dont have a TE


    Tough one... MJD Oak held the colts passing game but failed to stop the run

    I´d go with Dwayne Bowe - yeah he was aweful last week, but too much talent and now with a decent QB. And he is a redzone target...

    I'm planning on starting Terelle Pryor, over Drew Brees this week - so I'm taking a sometime sit your studs.

    Never been much of a matchup guy - however Brees on the road vs Revis compared to Pryor in a home debut against the Jags swings the pendulum for me.

    Need help with this one for my flex spot....

    James Jones WSH
    Daryl Richardson @ATL

    I would normally go with James Jones if not for the fact that he didn't get a single point for me last week. Thoughts?

    After watching Geno Smith tonight and thinking about how he went for 250+ yards on like 60+% completion with a TD against the Bucs are you sure that's wise?

    Also, the Raiders are going to be starting Khalif Barnes at LT because Menelik Watson had to have surgery on his knee after the OAK/Indy game. I don't think the Jags are going to win or anything, but that has ugly low scoring game written all over it.

    I thought Geno was pretty good tonight - his receivers were not helping him out at all. I've been pretty impressed by him considering the pre-season ridiculousness that the Jets endured - and that he is playing for, well, the Jets.

    From watching Pryor in preseason, I think he has got a lot of fantasy potential - his O-line wasn't great to begin with, and now his LT is down, he's going to be having to use his legs quite a bit - which I think he'll be able to do with some effect. With the yardage that Pryor put up in the air and on the ground against Indy, whom I don't think are an bad defense, I've got hope Pryor will be able to at least match Brees in fantasy points this week.

    Time will tell how it goes. For what it's worth, I've also got McFadden, and picked up the Raiders DST in for the week as well, leaving Indy on the bench.

    Ultimate boom or bust stuff - I'm either going to look like an idiot, or I'm going to have bragging rights over the league commish (who I'm playing this week) for the season. Regardless I'll make sure I pop back in to gloat/eat crow.

    I would go with Jones. I don't see Richardson doing too much vs ATL and all Jones needs is one big catch to have a good day.
