Still trying to convince myself that starting the Green Bay D against the tenth-ranked offense in the league is a good call, no matter what the fark happened on Monday. My other option is the 11th ranked D, the Niners, in an East Coast game against the Jets offense, ranked 22nd. It's the intangibles that are giving me pause.
 
2012-09-30 10:04:09 AM  
So, you are debating starting a top 5 DST against Sanchez/Tebow? Just repeat that over and over until you do the right thing.
 
2012-09-30 10:05:53 AM  
And yes, I know you say the 49ers are ranked 11th. But there really isn't enough of a sample size for that, yet. Eye test and past results say top 5 by week 8.

Advice on RBs please. Williams from ARI or McGahee from DEN.
 
2012-09-30 10:11:29 AM  
Any definite word on Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller's status? I really need something from Tashard Choice today. I'm stuck starting him in any case. I was already pretty screwed RB-wise and then Beanie Wells. I'm trying to make a trade but so far no bites, and there is zero prospect free agents.

HeathenHealer: Advice on RBs please. Williams from ARI or McGahee from DEN.


Trade for some better RBs. I'd take Williams. McGahee is cooked.
 
2012-09-30 10:16:51 AM  
Any thoughts on Ahmad Bradshaw's return? At RB I have Willis McGahee, Doug Martin and Bradshaw. I have to have two of these knuckleheads in. Yeah, I have a bit of an RB problem.

I hate my RB lineup. I have Tashard Choice, Darren Sproles, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Andre Brown and Daniel Thomas. I have Green-Ellis in at Flex for sure, and I'll leave Sproles in, but I can't decide between Choice, Brown or Thomas. Brown got me 25 points last week but is only projected for 4.7 this week. Choice makes sense with CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson banged up, but he's only projected for 2.2 this week. That leaves Thomas, who is projected for the most with 12 points this week, but that's only if Reggie Bush doesn't play.

This is my first year playing fantasy. What would you veterans do in my situation?

I'm also trying an experiment today. It's called "my player is on a bye week, so I'm starting whoever's playing Jacksonville." Should work, in theory.

Agreed. And IF the Jets win it is likely to be low scoring. I cannot see them getting to 20 points without some turnover foolishness. Game has 17-13 either way all over it.
 
2012-09-30 10:28:08 AM  
Here's my starting lineup right now:

QB: RG-III
RB1: Sproles
RB2: Choice
WR1: Demarius Thomas
WR2: Santana Moss (handcuff to RG-III)
TE: Daniel Pitta (facepalm... started him over Owen Daniels because he was projected for 12 or 13 points... didn't touch the ball a single time and gave me a big fat 0 Thursday night... watch Daniels go off for 60+ yards and two touchdowns today...)
K: Gostkowski
Flex: Green-Ellis
DEF: 49ers

Bench:

QB: Jay Cutler
RB: Andre Brown
RB: Daniel Thomas
WR: Pierre Garcon (my primary WR and handcuff to RG-III, but he's injured and is questionable today... I hope Moss performs in his absence but I have no idea how it's going to go today for the 'Skins)
WR: Mario Manningham
TE: Owen Daniels (can't start him, my TE already played this week)
 
2012-09-30 10:28:15 AM  
Flex spot: Alfred Morris, Danny Amendola, Dez Bryant, or Mikel Leshoure?

Also fark Pitta for getting a goose egg.
 
2012-09-30 10:28:26 AM  
Decimated by injury and bye, I'm looking at Lance Ball vs. Forte. Should I just hope for the best with Forte? Or gamble on Ball getting all the touches today?

Also have Decker on the bench with Welker, Jennings, and Bowe in my WR slots. Any reason to swap any of them out?
 
2012-09-30 10:28:55 AM  
Type of Flex is W/R, this is a non-PPR league.

Jonny Chimpo: Flex spot: Alfred Morris, Danny Amendola, Dez Bryant, or Mikel Leshoure?


Leshoure if probably the most reliable point getter with a lower ceiling. Dez or Danny *could* put up 20+, but I'd rather have the "for sure" 12-15 from Leshoure.

Woudn't tat be Alfred Morris? He has 3 weeks of consistency vs Leshoure's 1 week

Also, I would just like to share my team for shiats and giggles

QB: RG3
RB: Rice
RB: Peterson
WR: AJ Green
WR: Cruz

OK...ugh...first off, "handcuff" means you draft the backup in case of injury. So the "handcuff" to RGIII would be Rexy. Secondly, what is your draft format? If it is non-auction, you did poorly. You don't have anyone worth even a 2nd round pick. I'd start Cutler over RGIII most weeks. Are the Redskins your favorite team or something?
 
2012-09-30 10:35:56 AM  
What's worse than being 0-3? Knowing you left enough points on the bench to win every game.
 
2012-09-30 10:35:57 AM  

WaywardSon: Here's my starting lineup right now...:


Well, on the plus side it's a learning experience and you'll be better next year. But did you start drafting in round 4? For the life of my I can't figure out who your rounds 1-3 picks were.

There's nothing wrong with your starting lineup given the options though.
 
2012-09-30 10:36:18 AM

Also, chance of rain in NY. Ugly and low scoring means start SF.

2012-09-30 10:38:42 AM  
No, second-favorite, but that had nothing to do with my decision. I had a hunch Griffin would do well his first year. It was a non-auction league with twelve teams. It was a "snake" draft. It went DEAD LAST. All the top-shelf running backs were gone. I decided to take RG-III and Garcon as my first two picks. By the time it came back to me I took Ahmad Bradshaw and Sproles. I dropped Bradshaw for Brown after he got hurt.

Look, I know I have a shaky team. What should I do as far as starting running backs today?

2012-09-30 10:39:19 AM  
Kind of stumped at what to do for my FLEX. I've got
F. Jackson
M. Leshoure
A. brown
M. Turner
So basically Q, Q, a guy splitting time, and a guy who sucks this season. Any compelling reason to go with one guy over the other?

Made two trades this season:
Sent Steve Johnson for Alfred Morris after week 1.
This week traded Cam Newton & Torrey Smith for RG3 & AJ Green

I avoid the 'Skins like the plague; any time I have ANY other option, I'll take it; you never know what skins team is gonna show, or how Shanny wants to run the ball. Leshoure is the definite #1 guy.

if you must start those rbs, i would go Brown over Choice. You could move BGE up to rb position and start Manningham with Revis hurt.

I would agree but Royster is injured and Helu was placed on IR. While Shanny is crazy, I don't see him giving many carries to Ryan Grant, who signed this week.

So I have shiatty #2 WRs.

Pick 1

Justin Blackmon (hasn't done shiat all year) vs CIN
Mike Williams (TB) vs WAS
Sidney Rice @ STL

I think Rice, but ugh, awful awful #2 WRs.

If you started Cutler over RG3 "most weeks" you'd be leaving 52 points on your bench so you don't really know what you're talking about. Also, while "handcuffing" typically means to start a teams 2 rbs, I'd argue that with a running qb like RG3 you could "handcuff" to his rb Morris as both split rushing TDs.

You're forgetting the simple truth of the matter. No matter how horrible Dan Snyder is, we're talking about a Shannahan Running BackTM.

Ouch. I only have 279 scored on me, although there are only 2 teams with more.
 
2012-09-30 10:50:44 AM  
I thought there were different types of handcuffs. IE, two runningbacks from the same team that split carries, like Foster and Tate. Or a QB to either a tight end, receiver or running back. In all cases, you get double the points on the play, hence the "handcuff".
 
2012-09-30 10:51:00 AM  
In fact, the only worse FF starter than Cutler is Tannehill who I doubt is on many teams. So, not only should Cutler not be starting overr RG3 (the best FF starter) but he prob shouldn't even be wasting space on your bench when better options like Palmer, Fitzpatrick, & Ponder are available.
 
2012-09-30 10:51:41 AM  
I must have been drunk on draft day (or else everyone else was) and got overloaded at RB. So, I have:

Adrian Peterson
Green-Ellis
Cedric Benson
Frank Gore

Must start two...wat do?

Huh. Thanks for saying that. You just made me look; I'm 1st in points scored and 4th in points scored against, one of four teams with 300 points against us right now. Only lost the first week because of a goddamned worthless Jet tight end who shall remain nameless, even in their best offensive game.

I will agree that RGIII has been better thus far. But, he is a rookie qb likely to finish the season with as many INTs as TDs in an offense with limited weaponry. He lit up NO but that win looks a lot worse a few weeks later. RGIII is also not Cam I'm that he is smaller and unlikely to get the 1 yd bulldozer td runs. I like RGIII in a dynasty league but would not consider him a top 10 qb particularly now that coordinators have tape on him. I don't like Cutler but he seems way more likely to get to 30 tds.

Benson is playing against the 32nd ranked run D, Lawfirm against the 30th, Gore against the 28th and A-Peat against the 11th. I know the Pack hasn't had a 100 yard rusher in forever, but....
