1.  Chicago Defense vs. NO or Philly Defense vs. Giants?

2.  For my RB2:  Eddie Lacey vs. Det. or Giovanni Bernard vs. NE or Darren Sproles vs. Chi.?

Warthog: 1.  Chicago Defense vs. NO or Philly Defense vs. Giants?

2.  For my RB2:  Eddie Lacey vs. Det. or Giovanni Bernard vs. NE or Darren Sproles vs. Chi.?


1.  Not crazy about either but Chicago might be the better bet with a better chance at a defensive score.
2.  PPR Sproles, Standard Bernard,  Lacy should be good but with him fresh off a concussion and Franklin's performance we don't know if GB will ride the hot hand.  Lacy should be the long term guy though.

/hoping for 60% accuracy, the guys who get paid to do this hope for 65%.

No difficult choices this week.

1) DaBears. While the Giants are terrible, I don't think you bench a very good D for a bad one with a good matchup
2) PPR Sproles. Standard Lacy. I think GB puts him right back in the thick of their plans off the bye.

1) Kaepernick or Luck?

2) T.Y. Hilton or Kenbrell Thompkins (like TFA recommends)?

I'm leaning towards Luck and Thompkins.
 
2013-10-06 09:07:47 AM
Is Amendola going to play? I mean, I know at some point during this game he'll blow out his hammy or his clavicle or or his duodenum or he'll be shocked into a terror-coma at the sight of a cricket under the bench and miss the next nine Olympics, but is he going to start or do I put in Hartline (sucks, but healthy) or Shorts (didn't practice, is a Jaguar)?

Luck (Colts at home). Seattle ain't quite so awesome on the road.

I'd go Kaepernick, Thompkins.  That said I'm starting Luck in a league.

Amendola may play and if he does you basically have to start him unless you are stacked at WR.  I'm benching Shorts for Givens this week since I trust Bradford against Jax more than Gabbert vs St Louis.
 
2013-10-06 09:54:20 AM

Yeah, he's starting. Was just confirmed.

2) T.Y. Hilton or Kenbrell Thompkins (like TFA recommends)?

I'd go Kaepernick and Thompkins. The Texans will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and I'm guessing it will be by allowing Kaep to run for TD(s) in the 2nd half. Amendola is back, but I think Thompkins has gotten synced up with Brady, and Brady does not give a shiat what your name or number is. He throws to whoever understands how he sees the field. I'm still going to start Edelman in PPR as my #3
 
2013-10-06 10:03:45 AM
Standard scoring, Witten or Julius Thomas?
Leaning towards Thomas since he's got Peyton throwing to him.

I'd only start Edelman if you have too.  He plays the same slot roll as Amendola.  Unless he aggravates the injury immediately Edelman probably won't see that many snaps.  Patriot injury games just makes all Pat decisions a nuisance.

Thomas,  Witten isn't a huge red-zone threat (Giants game notwithstanding)
 
2013-10-06 10:14:24 AM
What do you think?  QB: Russell Wilson v. Colts or Matterception Schaub v. 49er?  And on the shiatty RB situation: Knowshon Moreno or LeGarette Blount?  My other RB option is David Wilson, so...yeah.  It sounds like Blount might get quite a bit of work this weekend, thought, and Denver's committee RB approach thus far gives me a sad.
 
2013-10-06 10:22:39 AM
Here's an interesting one: Eli Manning vs. PHI (31st vs. QBs) or Terrelle Pryor vs. SD (32nd)?
 
2013-10-06 10:23:39 AM
Also I know he's supposed to play, but any idea if Andre Johnson's injury will hobble him today?
 
2013-10-06 10:24:04 AM

QB Wilson, unless you get points for pick 6's

RB I'd start Wilson.  I know he's been bad but the Eagles don't have a D in the same league as any of the ones the Giant's have faced.  If he doesn't do it this week he may never do it.  If you're afraid I'd probably consider Moreno. I don't like Blount vs Cinci.

Harv72b: Here's an interesting one: Eli Manning vs. PHI (31st vs. QBs) or Terrelle Pryor vs. SD (32nd)?


I'd go Pryor, decent chance of a rushing TD or two.
 
2013-10-06 10:27:31 AM

Harv72b: Here's an interesting one: Eli Manning vs. PHI (31st vs. QBs) or Terrelle Pryor vs. SD (32nd)?


I'd go Manning since the Eagles pass rush isn't there.

SilentStrider: Also I know he's supposed to play, but any idea if Andre Johnson's injury will hobble him today?


I'm sure it will a little but as long as he's active you pretty much have to start him.

Harv72b: Here's an interesting one: Eli Manning vs. PHI (31st vs. QBs) or Terrelle Pryor vs. SD (32nd)?


This is interdasting.  I think I'd lean towards Eli, despite the trainwreck that the Giants have been.  The Eagles secondary blows so he might get all Manning-face and go gunslinger on them.  I'm guessing Eli feels he has something to prove, too, after their mess of a season thus far.  I guess that assumes he doesn't get sacked a bazillion times again, though.

I also have Decker. Desean Jackson and Larry Fitzgerald in the league. Right now I have Decker and Johnson starting at WR, and Jackson at flex.

I'm rolling with Edelman over Michael Floyd and Roddy White in one league.  His line with Amendola in Game 1 was 7/79/2 against Buffalo.  I don't think the ground and pound game with L. Blount at the head is going to work against the Bengals, and I don't think we see much, if any, Aaron Dobson. today.


My Sunday dilemma is in my other league with the disappointing Mike Wallace.  Considering benching him for for Michael Floyd or Kendall Wright; probably Wright but Fitzpatrick at QB is giving me pause.

I picked up the Rams defense and sat the Bears. I'm hoping since Rams are playing the jags I might not actually have the lowest score this week---again.

I don't think Brady will LET them sit Edelman at this point. Even with Amendola back, Edelman will be on the field.

Solid Stafford vs GB

"I know he's on a hot streak but I've been down this road before and all I got was a sore a-hole" Rivers vs Oak
 
2013-10-06 11:07:21 AM
Maurice Jones Drew might not play like complete garbage this week considering the Rams have a run defense that is almost as bad as the Jags.

I'd bench Decker for Fitz.  Decker missed practice with a hurt shoulder and will probably be rested in the second half when the Broncos are comfortably ahead.

The Broncos linebackers are generally terrible against tight ends and the Cowboys will be throwing a ton today while playing from behind.  I like Witten here and I am a Bronco fan who loves Orange Julius.

Flex slot, normal rules, Daryl Richardson vs. Jags, or Joique Bell @ GB?

Richardson is only probable, and may not get many touches.
 
2013-10-06 11:11:56 AM
Vernon Davis or Golden Tate for my W/R/T (Non PPR)
 
2013-10-06 11:12:52 AM
DeAndre Hopkins @ SF
DeAngelo Williams vs ARI
Nate Washington vs KC.

Or two of those and bench Amendola.  Leaning Williams.

Richardson is likely to get about as many touches as Bell will.  Besides, Jacksonville.

Need to pick 2 of the following RBs:

Ray Rice vs Dolphins
LeGarrette Blount vs Bengals
Bilal Powell vs Falcons
Andre Ellington vs Panthers

Leaning towards Rice and Blount, but Powell is a good option as well.

That is a tough one.  I'd probably go with Bell because that game promises to be a shoot-out and the Rams look like they're ready to give up on Richardson.  But then again maybe he finally steps up against the Jags.

You're best bet may be to go opposite of my instincts and go with Richardson. Opposite of my instincts is usually a winning strategy.

I don't like Stafford with Mega being hampered by injury but you know thats going to be a shootout.  Riversface is very hot right now and he's a total dick but he is playing on the road after midnight so maybe Gremlin rules apply.  I'd go Stafford.

Just a feeling.  Davis and Gore make the SF O tick.  Without Davis, Boldin becomes an easily defensible receiver.  I'm actually starting Tate in a league but I'm not expecting much.

Play Stafford every week and don't even blink. Personally I think he's a mediocre NFL QB, but he is fantasy gold*.

Rice is awesome but he's getting so few touches.  Blount will get work with the other Patsy RBs banged up and Powells been quietly having a really good season.   The experts like Rice and Powell but i like Blount to get a couple short TDs.  I'd go Blount and Powell.

Only 12 hours until the Raiders / Chargers kickoff.   Rivers is expecting his 7th child and is a religious wacko who homeschools his own kids.
 
2013-10-06 11:32:36 AM
For my flex spot, I get to choose between Eddie Royal, Torrey Smith, Sidney Rice, and David Wilson. Leaning toward Royal at the moment.

Also, in a different league, someone offered to trade me Greg Olsen and Rashard Mendenhall for my CJ Spiller and Brandon Myers. Trade still valid 'til Tuesday, do I bite? My gut says CJ will break out eventually, but I can't settle for 2 points/game from my TE and the best TE on my waiver wire is that Graham guy from the Texans.
 
2013-10-06 11:34:03 AM
I had picked up Brian Hoyer this week...I will never put my trust in the Cleveland Browns again.
 
2013-10-06 11:34:11 AM

elguerodiablo: Rice is awesome but he's getting so few touches.


The Ravens specifically said Rice needs more touches this week. They're not happy with Pierce's production and are scaling back his snaps.

Also, Gronk is officially out so Edelman, Amendola, and Thompkins hold value I think.
