Any Giants fans have some scoop on Ahmad Bradshaw? I can't seem to find anything substantial on him aside from that he's not 100 percent but is expected to play. Either way, I suspect Brown and Wilson will be vulturing some of his TD opportunities.

W/R: A "probable" Jacoby Jones in Cleveland or Marcus Thigpen in Indy? I know Harbaugh's farking with the NFL right now so I'm mostly sure I'm okay with Jones, but still...

Also, probable Matt Bryant or Justin Tucker?

I'd go with Jones. Isn't he returning kicks, too?

Doctor Funkenstein: I'd go with Jones. Isn't he returning kicks, too?


He is. Again, it's a question of how probable is he given the situation. I'm leaning towards him either way....

If you haven't heard yet, Sproles is OUT for Mondays game with a broken hand.
 
2012-11-04 11:02:21 AM  
Titus Young or Mike Williams?
 
2012-11-04 11:06:44 AM  
My only decision this week is Torrey Smith vs Cleveland and their improving Pass D now that Haden has been back, or Andre Roberts vs the Packers somewhat soft secondary, playing in Green Bay. For now, I'm leaning towards Robers, as I think Arizona will have to throw it a bit in that game, and Skelton seems to like to target him (also Fitz will draw their only good cover corner, Tramon Williams). For whatever reason, I just dont see Torrey having a huge game like he did against Cleveland earlier in the year, when Haden was on suspension.

Thoughts anyone?

(This is for my 3rd WR position, so it's not like it's a game breaker for me, but still)
 
2012-11-04 11:07:39 AM  

HeathenHealer: Titus Young or Mike Williams?


Definitely Titus Young, he has the better matchup and his role will be increased due to Megatron's injury.
 
2012-11-04 11:07:47 AM  
Please help, I have no idea who to start this week! I have 2 RB spots, 2 WR spots and a WR/RB spot. It isn't a PPR league, just straight up yards and TDs, but you get an extra 2 points every 5 receptions. Here are who I have to choose from:

RBs:
Marshawn Lynch (vs Vikes)
Adrian Peterson (vs Seahawks)
Willis McGahee (vs Cinci)

WRs:
Vincent Jackson (vs Oak)
Andre Johnson (vs Buffalo)
Steve Smith (vs Redskins)
Torrey Smith (vs Cleveland)

So I need to pick 5 of these 7 with at least 2 of each. Any help? Right now I have Lynch and McGahee starting along with Jackson, Johnson and S. Smith, but I'm not sure sitting AP is the right move. The WRs have been up and down all season, but all have great match ups, so I think it may be luck of the draw?

Thanks. Yahoo fantasy has "out with hand surgery" in grey text but doesn't list him out. I was flexing him.

My only concern is that Young might get more attention from the defense due to Megatron being injured.

Johnson is still supposed to play, albeit in a limited role. The defense will still have to respect him and roll coverage his way. Jacksonville is also not exactly a stud defensive unit
 
2012-11-04 11:13:36 AM  
OK. Fark has spoken. I'm going with Young.

I do not see how you can sit Adrian Peterson, he has run strong the last few weeks and looks to be all the way back. If your league is not PPR i would start all 3 RB along with Vincent Jackson and Torrey Smith.
 
2012-11-04 11:17:56 AM  
Pretty much to the point where I'd trade Megatron and Chris Johnson for some socks and a bottle of gatorade.
 
2012-11-04 11:19:48 AM  
I had Sidney Rice at flex but I replaced him with Andre Roberts after some fantasy expert told me he would have a huge week (and those guys are never wrong). THOUGHTS?

I should have started Roberts over that bum Dwayne Bowe. But no mucky, you gotta go with the idiot you drafted high.

Ok thanks. I'm not a big fantasy person, trying to help out a friend with his team. It really is the match-ups that are giving me pause as any one of the WRs could have a breakout game. Any reason you would start Torrey Smith over Steve Smith? I know T. Smith had a big game against Cleveland earlier in the season, but S. Smith has had some big games the last 2 weeks and has to be destined to get a TD at some point. Thanks again for the help.

HeathenHealer: OK. Fark has spoken. I'm going with Young.


True story. Someone tried to trade me Coby Fleener and Michael Crabtree this week for Rob Gronkowski and Titus Young. I couldn't believe they were serious.

nmrsnr: For my flex spot: Fred Jackson or Marques Colston?


Count on Jackson for about 7. Colston will get you 3 or 17.

recoil47: My only decision this week is Torrey Smith vs Cleveland and their improving Pass D now that Haden has been back,


I would think any Ravens WR not named Anquan Boldin would be a pretty good play. Boldin, of course, will be mainly covered by Haden.

Also, the other way is probably good too. With all the Ravens' D problems, Richardson, Gordon, and possibly Little would be good starts today. (I'd hold out on Massaquoi until after the Browns' bye, though.)
 
2012-11-04 11:27:42 AM  

nmrsnr: For my flex spot: Fred Jackson or Marques Colston?


I'd say Colston. He's a consistent dude and at home against a shaitty Eagles D.

Some guys in my league are the same way. They send ridiculous trade offers then get offended when you counter with something more reasonable.

Well, consistent might be a strong word but I like his chances at home against the Eagles.

I'm hoping for a shoot out. I got Brees in 2 leagues. The Bills will try to run a lot to slow the game down. How long they do that for is anyones guess.

Maclin and Young. Laugh at the Cowboys all you want, but they have been damn good at shutting down receivers this season. Cruz has no salsas against them and like 60 yards in 2 games.

Sproles injury didn't come out until friday though (i think), so it wouldn't have helped me much.

Calvin Johnson's injury is annoying me.

Right now, he is "expected to start," but on what basis?

I had him on my bench when I thought he would just be on the field during third downs, but now he's going to start?

I have Johnson, Kendall Wright, or Greg Little as options for me.
 
2012-11-04 11:46:58 AM  

jonohull: Cam vs. Wash or Roethlisberger vs. Giants?


I'd go with Cam. They have an equal probability for a shiatty game, but Cam has the higher possible upside.
 
2012-11-04 11:47:02 AM  
I have a ridiculous WR setup:

Cruz
J Nelson
D Moore ( a must start lately)
M Williams
Titus Young
James Jones

I can start 3, and I'm benching Cruz and Nelson. Time will tell whether I'm retarded or a genius. Cruz is playing the #1 pass D, coming off a lame week. Nelson is active, but has a hammy issue going into a bye week. McCarthy will play him limited. They cant afford another Greg Jennings issue.

Jones will snipe Jordy's normal targets, and Williams, Moore and Young are just ridiculous lately.

/Is there a term for 'anti-sleeper'? (the guys who are SUPPOSED to play big, but get shut down.)
