    I am having trouble convincing myself to take the better matchup plays over the better players and need some outside assistance.

    I run in a league with a basic setup.

    1QB
    2RB
    2WR
    1TE
    1 Flex RB/WR
    1 K
    1 DST

    Quarterback: I have 2 good ones in Jay Cutler vs. MIA and Aaron Rodgers @ Ten. Oh and they both had bye weeks last week so I picked up Matt Schaub who had an awesome game for me. But he wont get the nod this week. Obviously Cutler has the better matchup and basically gets about the same amount of points. What do you think?

    RunningBack: Graham @ KC, Jones-Drew @Cin, Lynch vs. NYJ, Matt Forte vs. DET. I am going to run the RB in my flex spot since I have such good matchups this week. KC and CIN are 2 of the worst run defense teams in the league, and DET is right there as well. But that would leave out by #1RB Lynch on the bench. He is going against a defense who is one of the better run defenses in the league and has only given up 7 TD's on the ground all year I think. What do you think?

    WR: Wayne vs. NE, Plaxico vs. DAL, Boldin @ STL and Roddy White @ OAK. White and Boldin have the best matchups, Plax has been bad the past x weeks, and Wayne has the worst matchup against NE, but is my #1 WR. So I have White and Boldin getting the nod. What do you think?

    TE: Gates is on his bye so Daniels gets the nod.

    K: I have 2 good ones in Prater and Gostkowski. I am going Prater because they are at home vs. MIA and NE is on the road. What do you think?

    DST: I have MINN vs. HOU and TENN vs. GB. I think TENN is a better defense, but its hard not to play the defense that is playing the Texans even though they have been scoring alot this year. They are on the road, and MINN is a good defense. GB has a more balanced attack and is a playoff team at this point. Im going with Minn. What do you think?

    Thanks for taking the time to read and help me out.

    Damn! You should definitely be 1st in your league with that draft. Nice value on Cutler in the 16th.

    Actually yes I am in 1st (6-2)

    All the teams are stacked due to only having 8 teams.

    Losing Brady was a big hit. Actually how I got my first loss. But solid drafting like Boldin, Jones-Drew and Graham in round 6,7,8 and taking chances on players like White and Forte paid off.

    And how Cutler lasted so long is crazy. I guess people saw the diabetic Cutler from last year, and would rather take players like Favre, and Gerrard.
