I think you're making the correct moves. Reggie Wayne is risky, but I don't know how you sit him until you know he's ineffective without Peyton.

My lineup is pretty set, although I am somewhat concerned about Flacco against Pittsburgh.

QB: Start 1
Flacco vs. Steelers
Garrard vs. Titans
Tarvaris Jackson vs. 49ers

RB: Start 2
Benjarvis Green-Ellis vs. Dolphins
Shonn Greene vs. Cowboys
Ryan Grant vs. Saints
Mike Tolbert vs. Vikings

WR: Start 2
Calvin Johnson vs. Bucs
Vincent Jackson vs. Vikings
Mike Sims-Walker vs. Eagles

TE: Start 1
Tony Gonzalez vs. Bears
Todd Heap vs. Panthers

I kind of like the idea of making a thread per week to consolidate things. However, since Mr. Awesome is posting in this thread it'll have to do.

Part of me would be tempted to go with Garrard against Tennesee. I think he's the more high risk/high reward choice at QB, Sir Awesome.


Pest -- Eli vs. Washington is pretty tempting.


Here's my pickle this week:

Let's assume Arian Foster plays this week.

Greene v. Dallas
Benson @ Browns
Wells v. Panthers

I would go with Wells. He only has Taylor behind him and the Panthers defense is horrible.

Also pick a flex for me. We don't HAVE to start a TE, but Witten is my best option.

Brady,
MJD, Law Firm
Wayne, Boldin, Witten
Starks is my current FLEX

Other options include: Crabtree, Michael Bush, Hester, Helu or Cadillac.

Thinking of putting Michael Bush in as the flex. Also maybe Hester in place of Witten.

I feel pretty locked into my fantasy line up except for WR #3 and TE

Here are my options in a non PPR league

WR: Steve Smith(CAR) @ Arizona or Julio Jones(ATL) @ Chicago

TE: Tony Gonzalez(ATL) @ Bears or Lance Kendricks (STL) vs Philly

I got TG late in my draft so I'm glad I didn't overpay. Just don't know who to start since both play decent D's.

Well if I were in your shoes it would be either Bush or Blount. I think Blount is the better RB at this point, but if it's ppr Bush might make more sense with his pass catching ability. Looks like Bush is gonna get the majority of the carries too for as long as he can produce and stay healthy. They're not very high on Daniel Thomas right now.....he's in the coaches doghouse as it were.

Bowe.

No Moeaki means that Cassel is going to be force feeding Bowe all day long.

Bush is going up against a tough defense and Blount is a 2 down RB against a damn good defensive line.

I'm pretty much set except for my flex position.

Not PPR, just straight points.

QB: Josh Freeman
RB: Adrian Peterson

WR: Vincent Jackson

Ok, so at flex would you start:
Jordy Nelson vs. Saints
Julio Jones vs. Bears
Jerome Simpson vs. Browns

Need advice for two leagues.

League one, the question is Brandon Marshall vs. Steve Johnson

Not wild about Marshall this season with Henne and all, and Steve Johnson did get a TD against us last year, but I'm not wild about starting Johnson. I'd rather see how he pans out against #1 CBs before moving him into the starting lineup.


League two, I'll list all the options because I'm truly stumped:

Two RBs, one RB/WR, and two WRs

McFadden
Hightower
Tolbert
Shonn Greene
Mike Williams
Mike Wallace
Brandon Lloyd
Austin Collie
Jacoby Ford

Right now, leaning towards McFadden, Hightower, both Mike W's, and Brandon Lloyd. That would leave Tolbert and Greene on the bench, which is tough.

Marshall. New England's weakness is their secondary. KC's strength is the secondary. Their QBs are basically a push, and Marshall's the better talent anyway.

McFadden
Greene
Hightower
Mike Williams
Mike Wallace

I could see you justifying Lloyd over Hightower, but Timmy's got a really good grip on that starting job this year. Besides, the Giants defense is REALLY banged up.

That's what's holding me up. I think Rivers and Jackson will be on the same page, probably more so than Orton and Lloyd. But Denver might be throwing a lot, and their secondary can't keep up with Lloyd all night.

I'll probably go with the safer bet with Jackson...

Tough one. But I expect Houston to be clicking on offense, build a lead and run the ball.

The flip side of that... In the 3rd and 4th quarter I don't see Addai running much.. just enough to keep the defense honest. I'ld probably go Tate.

First off, Steron.. start Roddy White. No-brainer.

And perhaps this is another no-brainer, but who should I start this weekend:

Jermaine Gresham v. Denver (on my roster and I'm pretty high on him for the year)

or

Brandon Pettigrew v. yeah.. us. (i'm not so big on him even though I'm sold on Stafford, who is my 2nd QB since we start 2. They also have Tony Scheffler.)

I think this is a no-brainer most likely, but wanted to see what others thought.

As others have said, White is a must start in every situation. So is Britt if you didn't have Jennings and White. Britt will have a monster year, as will Beanie. I'd say you have to start him too.

P.S. That's a championship team right there... Tons of depth at all positions.

I guess I'll drop McCluster right before the game.. we count return yards, etc.. so he got 12.5 points last week, even with the drop and he is a WR/RB in Yahoo leagues. Which is nice given our small bench. But, almost certainly worth it.

I'd go with Motherfucker Johnson the Cut-Blocker. Oakland is more vulnerable through the air, and I'm sure Gailey and Fitzpatrick will want to go out and prove that the 4 passing TDs was no fluke.

Beyond that, Daniel Thomas is supposedly making an appearance for Miami this week. Nobody knows how that will eat into Bush's workload against the improved Texans defense.

Moore, absolutely. I'm all in on this kid. He's got the talent and the opportunity. He's one of those pickups that everyone will look back on in December and say "Why in the hell didn't I try to get him?". Think Miles Austin a couple of years ago, but with a worse QB.

If you can't get him, go for David Nelson of the Bills. He'll be a target monster, especially if Stevie "Cut-Blocking is Legal" Johnson misses any time. You just don't find 6'5" slot receivers.

Need some help with my lineup this week due to injuries. Start 2 RB 2WR and 1 RB/WR. Bolded are my current starters. I'm not sure on Harvin...or Bowe really. Also, if Jackson ends up sitting would you just go with Cadillac or try Helu since he had a decent game last week.

I have:

Mike Vick
Sam Bradford

Ray Rice @ Stl
Steven Jackson v. Bal
Cadillac Williams v. Bal
Michael Bush v. NYJ
Roy Helu @ Dal
Jamaal Charles*IR

Jeremy Maclin v. NYG
Dwayne Bowe @ SD
Percy Harvin v. Det
Jordy Nelson @ Chi
Denarius Moore v. NYJ
Miles Austin*OUT

Rob Gronkowski

Steelers D

Robbie Gould

Also still have 1 roster spot open, but there is just a pile of scrubs out there. Will probably use that for a wire pick up next week or bye week replacements.

You are over-thinking this. Roethlisberger is a better player going against a high-scoring team which still is pretty weak on defense. Sounds like a shootout to me.

This is the tastiest matchup for Ben until week 16 against St. Louis.

Keep an eye on this as well, since I thought Jones tweaked his shoulder again. If Benson plays, and it sounds like he probably will, I think he gets the ball ALOT, especially early in the game and just to keep the Bills honest and protect Dalton. He might be a better play here. Not saying definitely, of course, but something to consider.

Jones has already been a full participant in practice two days in a row. I thought about starting Benson....but the Bills offense is fucking potent right now and if the Bengals get down early.....Benson won't see touches.

That is the logical thinking, but I just kind of wonder if the Bengals will want to keep it off Dalton's back so much that they will just keep on running once every three plays, even if down. But, we really don't have a good sample of this yet this season unfortunately.

Yeah, a healthy Felix though... probably a no brainer then.

Vikes.. the Jags are going to run the ball at a Vilma-less NO defense, even when they are down. They will get points.

The vikings offense has not looked good so far... low-scoring game so we'll keep tossing stupid 2 yard passes most the game.

Can he repeat it? Hightower is, well, Hightower. Steady but he gets taken out in the 4th quarter for some reason. I am inclined to go with Foster. Dunno who to put with him. Greg Jennings is a lock.

Start Rice. He's got talent, he's going to get a bunch of targets, he's at home, and the Atlanta pass defense has been pretty atrocious. Yes, Tarvaris Jackson is fucking awful, but he's in a very good situation otherwise.

I'm not too keen on either Washington or Boldin this week. We all know about how good Revis is, but Joe Haden has been an absolute stud this year. Cleveland has, I believe, the number 3 pass defense. If it's a question of Rice, Washington, or Boldin, go with Rice. Otherwise go with Boldin and hope that the Jets are going to make sure that Torrey Smith doesn't recreate his line from last week by taking a little attention off of Anquan.

On the other side, losing Branch doesn't hurt... when would you start him anyway? But, Best has some upside, especially in PPR leagues.

I would say no, unless you have a hard-on for Marshall. I mean, I could see as a trade if you were particularly targetting him.

on that list, I like James Jones and Torrey Smith the best.

The game against the Jets where Smith had 1 catch he was targeted deep 3 or 4 times and was wide open for another HUGE TD if Flacco had any sort of accuracy that game...

so I think he's still a high reward play because he's going to get 1-3 deep targets per game

not sold on Little

I like James Jones as much as I like Jordy Nelson...total bang or bust, but he'll score 8-10 TD's this year so he's a solid WR3...yeah he had 1 TD catch last week but the Packers barely threw the ball for an entire half...Rodgers had like 290 passing yards in the 1st half and ended up with less than 325 if I recall correctly...they were just making the Rams their bitch.

Jennings is the #1 and will always get his...but after that it seems Jones/Nelson and Finley are all right there as to who might have a HUGE week...or at least a playable week...and you know 2 out of the 3 of those guys will have a fantasy worthy week (as well as Jennings)

Time for my weekly 'who should I start' post. I am currently 3-3 and generally unhappy with a couple players on my squad. The top player to draw my ire is Matt Ryan. I really thought this was going to be a huge year for him. So far, I have been wrong. With Fitzpatrick on the bye, I have no choice but to go with Ryan this week. It's a horrible match-up against the Lions but I have no other option. Arian Foster is a lock every week unless he's injured. RB2 has been problematic all season. I have decide either Chris Wells VS Pittsburgh or DeMarco Murray VS St. Louis. It has to be Murray right? Greg Jennings is a lock regardless the match-up. Roddy White has been killing me all season. I expected Greg Jennings numbers from him and I am not getting them. He's going against Detroit this week. Having the Ryan to White combination seemed like a winner going in, now not so much. Is it time to put Garcon in? Painter seems to have a connection with him. Against the Saints they should be throwing a ton, right? I have no idea. Right now, I lean towards Garcon as the Saints are lower third in the league defending the pass. I can go either way. Convince me.

I generally don't look too deep into matchups, especially with me studs. But, I'm a little concerned about starting Steven Jackson against Dallas with AJ Feely under center. Dallas is already tough on the run and they are absolutely going to stack the box.

My option on the bench is Tim Hightower. Carolina is terrible against the run, but I wonder if Shanny is going to feed him the rock.

I would go Murray. You never know what Shanahan is going to do with the backfield.

All indications point to Murray getting the majority of work for Dallas against the worst run defense in the league.

And with Feeley starting Dallas should have a big lead and that leads to a heavy dose of the run game.

Torain and Scott. Cruz has been quiet since Manninghams been healthy so I'd say Battle. If Ingram is playing, sit Battle for him. I doubt it though.

Oh, while I'm here....I usually don't do this, but I have Rodgers on bye and picked up Ponder (CAR) on a hunch last week. Stick with him or grab Dalton (SEA), Alex Smith(CLE) or Beck (BUF)off waivers? Maybe Shaun Hill(DEN)?

Thanks for the advice!

Honestly, if I were you, it would probably come down to Ponder or Beck. Shaun Hill is still iffy for Sunday pending on Stafford, and if Stafford is injured, it's difficult to judge how he will do in his first start of the season. Dalton, to me seems decent for a rookie, but below average overall. I know there is a lot of buzz about him, but I'm just simply not convinced. Alex Smith is facing that tough Cleveland defense and although Harbaugh has seemed to have somehow influenced him in a positive way, I would still feel uncomfortable having him start because he is just still so.... "Smithy" even with Harbaugh's influence.

Beck seems like a decent option because; a.) the QB controversy has probably increased his motivation to perform well, b) he performed well from a fantasy standpoint against the Panthers last weekend and c.) the Bills have given up the 7th most QB points. However, I am uneasy every week with my Washington RB's because Shanahan's spontaneous roster decisions. One would think that Beck's performance from last week would be enough to solidify a starting spot on the roster over Grossman, but with Shanahan, you literally never know. I would feel a little bit uncomfortable about that if I were to plan on starting Beck.

I didn't see much of the Vikings vs. Packers game, but recently hung out with one of my friends who is a die-hard Pack fan. I asked him what he thought of Christian Ponder and he said that although he is not impressed with Green Bay's defense this year (especially passing defense), he was impressed with Ponder. He said that Ponder reminded him of an upgraded version of Dan Persa from Northwestern. Everyone who has followed Iowa football for the past 3-4 years, knows Persa because he is a stone-cold Hawkeye killer. The guy vs. Hawkeyes has always been (with an exception of this year) clutch and has shown awesome scrambling/rushing abilities vs. them. If Ponder plays with that style and is an "upgraded" version of the Persa that Hawkeyes have fallen victim to, then I would say that he is probably capable of producing decent passing FF points along with some additional rushing FF points. Again, I haven't seen him play, but my source of information is (usually) credible. Ponder is another guy who is trying to solidify his role as starter and possibly the Vikings future, so he is definitely looking to perform to his full capabilities. He may even have it in the back of his head that he would like to out-perform Newton...being they are both rookies. In terms of QB controversy, if I were a betting man, I would say that Ponder showed enough last weekend to get the nod over Mcnabb (I don't even think anyone is questioning it at this point)....and as mentioned earlier, it's frustrating dealing with Shana-rosters. Meat Dragon can vouche for me on that one... he is the one who initially brought it to my attention. Now that I have looked into it, it is glaring. With Ponder going against a Carolina pass defense that Beck, ironically just showed last weekend is vulnerable, I would say Ponder is capable of doing some damage to them. Not to mention, if Ponder does have the rushing/scrambling abilities that my Packer fan friend was implying that he has, he would be rushing against a rush defense that has given up the 2nd most FF points in the league.

I would choose Ponder. Hopefully my logic doesn't make me come across as a blithering idiot. To be honest, this is my first year playing FF and I am hooked, but obviously still learning, so I admit, I am probably not the most credible of sources. But for what it's worth, that is my FF rookie input.

If I were to rate them from a fantasy standpoint, it'd be; 1.) Ponder, 2.) Beck, 3.) Dalton, 4.) Smith (given his history vs. tough defenses over the years...almost feel as if something has gotta give eventually), 5.) Hill.

Lmao about the Cassel comment. He has been added and dropped in my league on an almost weekly basis. I have never even considered picking him up. In fact, the mere sight of his name listed in the transactions every week makes me cringe.

Some of my FF team's matchups are making it difficult for me to decide who to start this weekend.

I need the following slots filled:

QB
RB
RB
WR
WR
TE
W/R
DEF
D Player
D Player
D Player
K

The only position I am completely decided on is K... which is Stephen Gostkowski. Jason Hanson has a bye week.

My roster is this:

QB: Tim Tebow, Matt Schaub, Josh Freeman
RB: Jackie Battle, Javon Ringer, Mark Ingram, Curtis Brinkley (I finally drapped Torain's unproductive ass).
WR: Julio Jones, Jonathan Baldwin, Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson, Victor Cruz
TE: Kellen Winslow
DEF: Chicago and Kansas City
D Players: Tamba Hali, Brandon Flowers, Lance Briggs, Terrell Suggs

Curtis Brinkley and Mark Ingram are potentially out this weekend, so I am pretty set on starting Javon Ringer and Jackie Battle in the RB spots. It's the WR situation that I am unsure of. Stevie Johnson and Anquan Boldin are usually shoe-ins to start, but ironically, I am thinking that I may sit both of them this week. Boldin is facing that tough Pittsburgh defense and Stevie Johnson is facing a Jets defense that doesn't give up many FF points to receivers. I was impressed with Baldwin Monday and am thinking that if he can rack up FF points against anyone, it'd be the Miami Dolphins. I have been waiting for Julio Jones to have a breakout weekend and I think he can do so against the Colts this weekend... shoot, didn't Cassel throw for 4 touchdowns against them? Victor Cruz produces quite often and with Hakeem Nicks not practicing today, there is a strong chance that Cruz will be the #2 guy. Not to mention, he is matched up vs. a WR vulnerable New England this weekend. So I am thinking about sliding him in the W/R spot. Am I making a mistake by starting these guys and benching Bolding and Johnson? Benching Johnson doesn't make me 2nd guess myself as sitting Boldin because it seems like Fitz has been targetting alternative options these past few weeks. However, Flacco targets Boldin a lot.... consistently. What would you do here?

I am starting the KC defense opposed to Chicago due to the matchup vs. Dolphins.

I think I have a grip on which defensive players to start.

I am unsure of who to start at QB. Tebow has been terrible, yet somewhat productive from a FF perspective. He will be facing Oakland. Schaub has consistently been in the 18-25 FF points per game range, but is facing a Cleveland defense that is tough on quarterbacks. Freeman is so inconsistent, but I took a chance a few weeks ago and started him vs. New Orleans a few weeks ago and he scored something like 28-29 FF against them. That is who he is matched up against this weekend.

Also, I am thinking about dropping Kellen Winslow for Brent Celek. Vick seemed to target him more frequently Sunday night than he has all year. Winslow has been a dud all year. Is this the right move?

Any opinions regarding any of my roster questions will be very much appreciated!

Despite this crappy FF team that is still feeling the after-effects from the Jamaal Charles injury (I selected him 1st round, 1st overall pick), I have a 5-3 record and am in 3rd place in a 12 team league. I don't have any explanation as to how other than I have caught better teams in crappy weeks. The team in first place is 8-1, with their only loss coming to me. :) The funny thing is, I didn't score many FF points that weekend to beat them....something like 95 points to their 88. Every other week, they have been in the 130+ points range.

Jones is coming off an injury, but was getting a ton of targets before he got hurt. Indy has no one that can deal with his size and speed. Problem is, Indy can't defend the run either, which means a ton of Turner.

Brown is getting a ton of targets as well, but has a much tougher matchup, and Pittsburgh will probably be throwing a lot.

Thomas vs. Chiefs

Do I dare roll with Tebow this week? Stafford is on bye, so it's either Tebow or waiver wire...

Flacco, Cutler, Alex Smith, Dalton are all available, though none really excite me...

I would never start tebow again...if he has another garbage first half he wont have that end of the game possession to pad his fantasy stats...it'll be brady Quinn time.

Deion Branch vs. the Giants or Sidney Rice vs. the Cowgirls?

Also, I am 90% sure I'm going to roll the dice and hope that Wells goes (He's the only RB on my roster with a late game). But I also picked up Ogbonnaya. Anybody think I'd be better off going with the guy who's not on the injury report?

Michael Bush v. Chargers
Ryan Mathews v. Raiders
Felix Jones v. Buffalo

Bush did very well for me last week; but I fear the Chargers D could actually slow him down. Mathews is coming back off a series of injuries; so I'm scared shitless to actually start him until he shows he's durable for a few games. I also have Felix Jones on my bench, he's really a non-factor for me at this point though. Just need to start one of these guys because I have Sproles/Gore going as well. Leaning heavily towards Bush. What say ye planet?

Bush.

Mathews will be splitting time with Tolbert and will be getting eased back in after his groin injury.

I can't decide who to fucking start in my RB2 and WR3 spots....help a brotha out. Current starters are in bold.

RB - Pick 2

MJD vs. Colts
Brandon Jacobs vs. 49ers
Marion Barber vs. Lions
Daniel Thomas vs. Redskins
Felix Jones vs. Bills
Chris Ogbonnaya vs. Rams

WR/TE - Pick 2 WRs and 1 TE or Pick 3 WRs

Vincent Jackson vs. Chargers
Mike Wallace vs. Bengals
Victor Cruz vs. 49ers
Titus Young vs. Bears
Jerome Simpson vs. Steelers
Greg Little vs. Rams
Vernon Davis vs. Giants

Do I roll with Ogbonnaya against the Rams because their run defense sucks? Do I roll with Jacobs against the #1 run defense in the league? Or do I take a chance with Barber who apparently vultures TDs?

Tebow is a QB1. Probably in my top 5-8 at this point.

To me, the gamble would be to start Brady (betting the farm on the Pats)

Tebow is the conservative play.

Comes down to whether you wanna roll the dice or not

I'm going to make Earl Bennett have at least one more week of production before I think about him in my lineup.

I really want to play Ogbonnaya today, but I can't make room for him. I have Gore and Beanie Wells and I can't justify benching either of them.

I just honestly think Fitz is a duh sit this week. I'd be shocked if he came up with 50+ yards and a td.

Oops.

I thought about sitting him today, too. But, by rule, I never sit any of my studs no matter how bad the matchup... Been burned by that too many times in the past

Maybe you play in an 8 person league or something... or a league where rushing TDs and rush yards don't count for QBs.. or maybe you just don't pay that much attention to FF

Dude....I play in a 12 team league where we award points for rushing yards and rushing TDs to QBs. His highest game was against Oakland with 30 points. I don't view him as a QB1 because he's not consistent. I damn sure wouldn't put him in the top 10 QBs in fantasy football.

Do me a quick fav. and look up his FF production from all of his starts (including last year). He's actually very consistent.

Edit: This isn't official, but quickly looking at the numbers he's around 18 FFppg in all of his starts (last year included). He is undoubtedly a QB1.

Freeman vs. Packers
Tebow vs. Broncos

or

Sanchez vs. Broncos.

Picked up Sanchez this week when I caught news that Schaub went down. At this point, I have Sanchez starting vs. Broncos. Freeman seems to be a toad this year. Friggin Tebow though... whenever I have sat him, I have regretted it. Should I use the safer option with Sanchez, take another gamble with Tebow or hope that Freeman has a nice game vs. Packers, similar to how he played New Orleans at home?

Tebow is not a gamble. What is wrong with you guys?

His lowest point total in all of his career starts is 11.5. He has never once shit the bed fantasy-wise. He's your QB1 the rest of the way.

VERY easy decision
