In the final game of my league, I've got a 40 point lead going into week 17. The biggest choice i have at the moment is at QB, where I'm currently starting Matt Cassel who's playing Buffalo. I know Cincy's D is godawful and despite 3 picks Thiggy still put up 25 fantasy points for me last week. But seeing as how the Pats need to win to get in, Cassel's gonna be throwing an awful lot. But the Bills d has potential to actually play a decent game, whereas I 'think' KC and Cincy are fighting it out for second overall.

Pending Waiver claims, my roster looks like this:

Cassel
Jones-Drew
Pierre thomas
Marques colston
Lance moore
Antonio Bryant
John carlson
Jets d/ST
Jason hanson

If all my claims go through, my bench will have:
Thigpen
Chris johnson
Visanthe shiancoe
Cedric benson
Tashard Choice
Dolphins d/ST
Nate Kaeding
Sammy Morris.

IF i get all these guys, I'm leaning towards benching Jones-Drew, moore, and Carlson in favor of Benson, Choice and Shiancoe, as well as kicking the Jets D for Miami's. With these moves in mind, do you think i've done enough to hold onto my 40-point lead?

Strangely enough, me too. Actually, I'm up by 37. But I've been starting Thigpen over Campbell for the past 8 weeks, so I only have one answer for you: Thigpen! Ride him to Championship glory!
