This one?

S. Jackson is gonna pull another labia today.  Not even gonna bother starting him. And I doubt DeMarco goes either.  Dallas/Det will be all passing all the time.  Really taking some by week hits now and need the bench to step up. Shoes are needing it.

I have Jackson but due to a trade he's probably riding the pine or trade bait.  I traded depth for Lynch. (Starting Backfield is Charles and Lynch) The only thing is I do need to find a WR3 (Maybe that will be Harvin starting next week)
 
2013-10-27 09:35:12 AM
I'll ask even though I think I know the answer.  Banged up Jimmy Graham (Assuming he goes) or Heath Miller.  The 6 teams on bye really have created a all hands on deck situation with a lot of teams.  I'm starting Zac Stacy against the Seahawks with two teams since I don't have another option.

Nefarious: Banged up Jimmy Graham (Assuming he goes) or Heath Miller


Oakland has been fairly tough against TEs this season & Miller is little more than Roethlisberger's security blanket anyway.  Graham, on the other hand, is pretty much God among tight ends, and you never sit God.

That's how I was leaning.  The timing works out too.
 
2013-10-27 09:59:34 AM
I have two leagues where I'm still looking for a win. This week isn't going to help.
 
2013-10-27 10:07:19 AM
Don't laugh. Kendall Hunter in the hopes that San Fran gets a laugher and he gets work, or Andre Ellington now that he's got the starter's job in Arizona?
 
2013-10-27 10:16:16 AM
Okay, here's one that's so close it probably doesn't matter.  Need to pick one as my flex in a standard scoring ESPN league:

Marques Colston vs BUF
Hakeem Nicks @ PHI

It bears mentioning that I blame Nicks 100% for my 2-point loss last week, and would therefore rather start Hitler than him.

News just hit that Graham may be unlikely to play today. Partially torn fascia.

Colston. I wouldn't count on Nicks for anything, the Giants are just too inconsistent week to week. It's possible Nicks could produce, but it seems equally likely he could end up with one or two points.

SilentStrider: Don't laugh. Kendall Hunter in the hopes that San Fran gets a laugher and he gets work, or Andre Ellington now that he's got the starter's job in Arizona?


Eh.  I'd start Ellington on the basis that I'd rather have "guaranteed" touches.

My thought as well.

Hitler was over rated.  HIs pass routes never seemed to work. I'd go with Colston.
 
2013-10-27 10:35:04 AM
Even if DeMarco starts, I doubt he gets 10 touches.  Dallas Det will be an air show, early and often.  Dallas has ANOTHER rookie safety going today.  He's like 5'5"....chum for Megatron.
 
2013-10-27 10:37:27 AM
Here's are my shiatty options for my WR/TE spot, as Andre Johnson has a bye week: Charles Clay or Riley Cooper.  Yeah, I know....  I do see that Brandon Gibson is available on the waiver wire.  Yeah, I know....

Thanks.  That's sort of the way I was leaning.  It sounds like Vick is going to get the start as Foles might have a concussion and had a pretty bad week 7.  Riley time!

SilentStrider: Don't laugh. Kendall Hunter in the hopes that San Fran gets a laugher and he gets work, or Andre Ellington now that he's got the starter's job in Arizona?


Ellington, he's not going to get 20 touches but he will be a primary part of the offense.  Can't guarantee that with Hunter.

It is a coin flip.  The three Giant WR's have a great matchup and both Nicks and Colston have been scuffling.  I think I'd go Nicks (who did have a huge game vs Philly a few weeks ago) but can't say I'd argue against Colston either.

 

Doctor Funkenstein: Here's are my shiatty options for my WR/TE spot, as Andre Johnson has a bye week: Charles Clay or Riley Cooper.  Yeah, I know....  I do see that Brandon Gibson is available on the waiver wire.  Yeah, I know....


I think Gibson should normally net you around 60-80 yards.  Belichick  will try to take Mike Wallace away so both Clay and Gibson will be active.  Shot in the dark go Gibson.  I don't like Cooper with Vick (Foles is the guy who would throw him the ball often)
 
2013-10-27 10:56:32 AM
I looked deeper into Cooper, he had 3 targets or fewer for 3 out of 7 weeks

Nefarious: I looked deeper into Cooper, he had 3 targets or fewer for 3 out of 7 weeks


Damn, now you have me second guessing Riley.  I like to think he'll do OK against the Giants, though.

Pick 2 out of 3.

McFadden
MJD
Alfred Morris

uggggggh.

As for the other two... Uh, coin flip?

Heads. McFadden.
 
2013-10-27 11:17:11 AM
In one league:

1. Andre Ellington or Pitch It to Choice?
2. Rueben Randle or Golden Tate?

In the other league:

3. Andrew Quarless or Joseph Fauria?
4. Larry Fitzgerald or Harry Douglas?

(Yes, I'm desperate...)
 
2013-10-27 11:18:42 AM
do NOT start Bowe

Fauria is getting more targets lately.  And eventually Fitz is gonna bust one open.

Choice and Randle is the lesser of the two sucks in the other.

Morris, McFadden

Ellington
Randle

In the other league:

3. Andrew Quarless or Joseph Fauria?

3. Yuck Fauria
4 Fitzgerald just because his matchup is better.
 
2013-10-27 11:28:27 AM
Need 2 of following in PPR league

Eddie Lacy vs Min.
Fred Jackson vs NO
Alfred Morris vs Den
G. Bernard vs NYJ

Going with Lacy and Jackson at the moment if CJ Spiller is out.
 
2013-10-27 11:28:46 AM
So here are my fantasy football dilemmas this week:

1) Well my TE situation isn't as questionable as I thought since something is finally coming out about Graham's status. Thankfully someone in my league was too inpatient (maybe stupid as well) to stash Gronk. I am not too worried about TE

2) If I were to start RG3, he will end up shiatting the bed. If I don't he'll flirt with 30plus pts today.I can't explain why the universe has directly tie his performance to my ff selection in a ratonal manner but it has happened all year. Now I have consistent, good ol' Matty Ice starting and once again, "experts" and everyone looking at this is saying RG3 will go crazy and I should sit Ryan.

TL;DR: Matt Ryan or RG3


3)
Usually I would start Alfred Morris over Le'veon Bell with out a problem but there are a few things going on. First and foremost....Shanahan  is being a dickhole. Morris is playing well but it looks like Shanahan is doing everything he can to keep Morris from getting into the endzone. F*uck Shanahan and Helu.

On the other hand Bell is also playing well, is a feature back, and is playing against the Raiders. The Raider aren't good at defending the run and Denver's like 1st or something like that.

TL;DR :Le'veon Bell or Alfred Morris.... why?

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll stick with Ellington, Randle, Fitzgerald, Fauria. If Fitzgerald doesn't have a decent game this week, I think he's getting eternally benched, given the decent matchup he's facing.

I face that RGIII dilemma every damn week. How crappy are my QBs when I have to rely on Cutler....

Working out well so far though, sitting in first...
 
2013-10-27 11:36:24 AM
OH and I would go Ryan
 
2013-10-27 11:39:48 AM

Which QB

Geno Smith
Tannahill
Eli
Vick

I am leaning in the direction of Tannahill and Vick.

libranoelrose: do NOT start Bowe


I haven't started Bowe since week 1.  He's next to useless in an Alex Smith run offence.   Such a waste of a talent.

I see the logic in that but I am just picturing him on a stretcher after the first drive.

Which makes it all the more exciting to have Vick as your FFB QB!!! He could go for 40 or take a ride on the golf cart off the field.

/he's my QB in one leauge
 
2013-10-27 11:50:42 AM

Land Ark: Steven Jackson @ 'Zona
BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs. Jets

Standard league


Jackson has played exactly 1 game and a quarter so far this year.  He didn't even participate all week in practice.  He's a dog.  I'd go MJD.
 
2013-10-27 11:51:32 AM

HaywoodJablonski: DeSean or Cruz?


Cruz.  Yea, it's Eli throwing it but he's their #1 target.
 
2013-10-27 11:53:12 AM
Ivory or McFadden?
 
2013-10-27 11:57:49 AM
Ellington or Helu for flex? Not a PPR league. 14 team standard scoring. Both have good matchups but I feel like rolling with Helu is an overreaction to last week.

I concur with Vick.  If not Vick, then maybe Eli, but it seems like a tossup at that point.

Lot's of folks will be chasing his last weeks points for sure.
