Week Three Lineup Advice

The weekly lineup advice column has exploded with interest. Last week, we had nearly 80 different lineup questions submitted and answered each and every one, as promised.

We’re going to try to answer the questions in a more efficient manner this week. We’ve upgraded the comments section underneath the article to allow us to post a reply to each individual comment.

So, all you have to do this week is post your question at the bottom of this article.  We’ll give you our answers in real time so you don’t have to wait any longer than you have to. Any questions already submitted via the online form will be brought over tonight.

Just make sure to indicate if your league is a PPR league, and if there are any other unique scoring requirements.

Let’s go!

Don’t bench your studs!! As soon as you do, they’ll have a game like you were expecting them to when you drafted them, and you’ll feel like a moron.
Romo, MJD, Colston, Maclin, Hillis (no Harrison this week), Witten

Yes, there is never a bad time to add a younger back, especially a RB2 behind an aging (nearly done) RB1 like Taylor. Is BJGE the “next”? Can’t say that but he has an opportunity and that’s all you can hope for.

Both play at home and that’s the key. If Orton was on the road, I play Favre. But I suggested Favre last week and got burned … burned myself in fact. Orton is a safer play.

That’s a tough one. I’d start Foster for sure and probably Jackson as my #2. Bradshaw’s matchup is intriguing this week but the offense in St. Louis has to run through Jackson.

Riders4Ever

10 team non-ppr re-draft league.
My biggest concern each week is who to start at RB, WR and the flex spot because my roster is loaded.
I need 2 RBs out of:
Ray Rice vs CLE
Arian Foster vs DAL
Pierre Thomas vs ATL
Matt Forte vs GB
Jahvid Best @ MIN

2 WRs out of:
Calvin Johnson @ MIN
Steve Smith (Car) vs CIN
Percy Harvin vs DET
Hakeem Nicks vs TEN
Dwayne Bowe vs SF
Johnny Knox vs GB
Demaryius Thomas vs IND

1 RB or WR at the flex spot.

I’m considering Rice and Thomas as my RBs. Nicks and Johnson as my WRs. I can’t decide on my flex spot between Foster, Best or Smith. I’m leaning towards Best at the moment.
I’d appreciate your thoughts.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Riders4Ever
11 years ago

So, basically it’s a pick five here. I go with these:

Rice
Foster
P Thomas
C Johnson
Nicks

It’s tempting to go with Smith, but who knows how Clausen is going to react against an underrated defense.

Riders4Ever
Reply to  DLF Ken K
11 years ago

So we agree on every starter except the flex spot.
I expect the Texans & Cowboys game to be an air show, so I’m worried Foster will get left out.
Best has put up impressive numbers and should be able to attack the Minny D on the edges rather than running up the gut where their strength is. I just don’t want to see Best sitting on my bench if he has a big day.
I agree Clausen is too much of a ? to start Smith.

Jeff Grey

In PPR league, head to head.. need help on who to start… League plays 1 QB, 2 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 RB/WR.. Who do I play from following:

1) Kyle Orton or Matt Ryan
2) Marques Colston, Mike Williams (TB), Jabar Gaffney, Mike Wallace, or Jacoby Jones
3) Jamaal Charles, Rashad Mendenhall, Shonne Greene, CJ Spiller, Marshuan Lynch, or Peyton Hillis
4) I’m playing Jermichael Finley no doubt!
5) Need a flex fill in

Thanks!

DLF This is easy
Reply to  Jeff Grey

1) Orton
2) Colston & Williams
3) Charles & Mendenhall
4) duh
5) Hillis. That’s right, Hillis.

League Type: Dynasty
Teams: 10
PPR: Yes (3 rec = 1 pt)
IDP: No

Short and simple. I need to pick one RB from among:

• Mike Tolbert
• Brandon Jackson
• Marion Barber

That one’s becoming a bit obvious, I think, but interested in any input I can get.

Secondly, I need two (one WR and one Flex) from among:

• Dez Bryant
• Malcom Floyd
• Mark Sanchez
• Chad Henne

Leaning toward Bryant and Floyd, but the option of playing a QB at Flex is hard to pass up, even with these two as the choices.

10 yds rushing = 1 pt
10 yds rec = 1 pt
3 receptions = 1 pt
35 yds passing = 1 pt
TD = 6 pts
TD pass = 4 pts
Interception = -1 pt
Lost fumble = -2 points

Thanks.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Camperhead
11 years ago

Yeah, I agree with that. Awfully tough not to put in another QB. I think Tolbert’s your guy, and I’d go with Floyd and Henne this week. It’s tempting to go with Sanchez, but I don’t trust him just yet, especially with the Edwards debacle this week.

If Wells returns, he certainly won’t have a full workload. I think Finley and Hightower are high risk/high reward picks here. No real safe options, so I’d roll the dice.

I need 2 WR’s in a 12 team non-ppr league. 20 yards rec= 1 pt.

I think Moss is a no brainer here. The other is pretty tough. I’d go with Mike Williams to continue his early season streak of games with a TD catch.

Great job last week on the lineup advice.

12 team, no PPR, redraft

How do you rank these waiver pickups and why: J Snelling, BJGE, L Murphy, Manningham, E Royal?

I’ll hang up and listen to your answer.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

Boy, those are close…and ranked differently in a redraft. I’d put them in this order:

Murphy (he’s the one guy on that list who is a no. 1 option on his team)

Royal (he’s bouncing back big, but Thomas is going to take some of his catches away)

Manningham

Snelling (it’s really tough to predict injuries, and that’s what it’s going to take for him to have 2010 sustained relevance)

Green-Ellis (the NE backfield is going to be an impossible juggernaut to predict this season)

Choose 1 wr, 1 rb in PPR and pts for KR/PR

Dez Bryant

Easily Garcon. MINN has been a train wreck and DEN is actually not a bad matchup for IND and Garcon.

DLF Ken K

I think Garcon is still worth playing this week, though his production has been disappointing.

Goodson can stay on the wire in favor of those other three right now.

Glad to hear it Chris! Tell everyone who isn’t in your league.

With Batch at the helm, I’d go with Clayton and MSW. Henne is more attractive with Revis out, but I’d go with Flacco. He’s due and they play a Browns secondary that isn’t exactly full of Canton-bound players.

1.) Freeman should come back to earth this week against PIT. I like Bradford there. Schaub torched that crew last week.

Mendenhall is a must start for you. I’d check the injury status reports all day tomorrow and Sunday, though. Some reports say Hightower should get more carries, others say Wells will. It’s a tough call there.

I’d play it safe and just go with Mendenhall and B Jackson, with Gaffney as your WR.

I have a RB question. I have CJ, B Jacobs, and Peyton hillis as my top 3. CJ is a starter obviously. But who do I start this week between the other 2?

Also is there anyone in FA that I could pick up at the RB spot?

DLF Ken K

Hillis is your other RB for sure. I’d check our weekly waiver wire articles for a list of players who could be available, but the best one at the moment looks like Laurence Maroney.

Reply to  Swanny
11 years ago

Jacobs can’t start, maybe ever again. Hillis is your easy choice this week. As Ken said, Maroney’s going to get a chance. After that, it’s pretty thin. Check some of our rising/falling articles for some ideas. Kuhn in Green Bay could get a few more carries.

Reply to  John

They both have a pretty equal number of carries thus far, but I think Bradshaw takes advantage this week and breaks a nice run.

You can bet the Bengals will dare to make Clausen beat them and the Panthers will likely run the ball a lot, though.

Both good choices, but I’ll roll with Bradshaw.

12 team PPR Dynasty League
I’m already 0-2 having been hit in the past 2 weeks by big weeks from Forte and McCoy and V Jax not being traded.

Which 3 WR’s and 1 TE would you pick to start and why?

My WR’s Smith (Car), Ward, Murphy, Jacoby Jones, Garcon, RE Williams, C Mitchell.

My TE’s: Z Miller, Moeaki

My instinct is to go Murphy, Jones and Smith at WR and Moeaki at TE. Ward has Batch at QB in a tough match-up and did little last week, Garcon has been a disappointment and had just 1 catch last week and Williams is OK for 3-30yds at most each week.

Miller also has been disappointing and although Gradkowski may look more underneath in his first game Moeaki has a decent match-up and a large number of targets over the last 2 weeks…

Your views!!?? Cheers guys.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  James
11 years ago

Moeaki has looked good, but you know he’s on the radar now. I like the combination of Murphy, Jones, and Smith with Z Miller as your TE. It’s tough to rely in two Raiders, but I think that may just be your best combo there.

I like Garcon over Jones if he seems healthy (and have recommended him here in the last few days), but he merits close watching the next two days.

WRs: Smith, Jones and probably Murphy. Garcon is intriguing this week but Collie is getting too many looks. Miller as your TE.

Another pick 5 for you. I don’t really like either of my RB matchups – Javid Best @ Minn and Ronnie Brown vs Jets. Also, could play Marshawn Lynch which would probably be real dumb! WRs are Fitz, Brandon Marshall, SS Carolina, Mike Williams- TB, TO, and shipley.

I’m leaning towards Best, Brown, Fitz, Marshall, SS…. and still Brees?

What say you?

I couldn’t sit Brees, unless he’s playing the Jets. Start him. I don’t like the Brown matchup vs the Jets, I expect Williams will do better against them. I’d swap out Brown for a sneaky play of Shipley for the PPR points.

12 team. PPR td=6,Rewards return yards

Ok with J. Harrison not practicing last 3 days im looking for a replacement for him. My back up rb’s arent any good so im going to play a wr instead. Options im considering is Roy Williams, James Jones or Josh Cribbs. Jones may have more potential..But Williams should get a opportunity at least because Cowboys dont like to run it and Cribbs always has the potential for a ret TD, though hes banged up as well. I cant make up my mind..Suggestions guys?

If you get return yardage, go with Cribbs … I have a sneaky suspicion about him this week. If no return yards, go with Jones.

Alright, I’ll get right to it.

I gotta pick from starting Orton/McNabb and a couple of quandries that are as follows

either LT/Tolbert

Pick 2 of the 3; Knox/Crabtree/Driver

My Gut tells me to stick with Mcnabb as Orton will likely find themselves passing often and early and IND will gameplan for that. Tolbert being “the” guy + goal line duties give him the edge, while Driver & Knox seem to be the reliable choice..

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  chris from alberta

Tolbert for sure. For your WRs, Knox and Driver – Crabtree looks pedestrian. At QB, I’d stick with McNabb, especially if your gut is telling you too. At least that way, if you’re wrong, you’ll be able to sleep and not over think things in the future.

I’m in a PPR league. QB 1pt-25yrds 4pts-td I have Romo and Vick both should be good do I go with Vick we also get 1pt-10rushjng yards. RB 1-10 6-td With 4 solid RB’s every week is tough to pick 2 out of Best,P-Thomas,Gore,and McFadden. What do you guys think? This is a tough week. WR 1-10 6-td i’m really stuck here Calvin Johnson, Maclin-PHI, Wallace-PIT, and i just picked up D-Thomas from DEN. I need 2 of these guys for my week 3 lineup. HELP!

I’d still start Romo. I’d start Vick over a lot of other QBs, but probably not outside of the top 8 at this point, even with Romo looking less than ideal. Real tough choice with your RBs and you have a good chance of getting burned regardless. I couldn’t sit either McFadden or Gore this week, have to start both.

Megatron is still a must start every week. For your WR2, I’d roll the dice on Thomas.

Love the site!
12-team league, redraft, 0.2 ppr

Start 3 WR from the following:

Brandon Marshall v. NYJ
Miles Austin v. @HOU
Jeremy Maclin v. @JAX
Legedu Naanee v. @SEA
Louis Murphy v. @ARI

I’m obviously starting Austin and will most likely start Marshall considering Revis is out. I’m torn between Maclin and Murphy. Thanks for any thoughts!

Thanks for your comment.

Your starting 3 are Austin, Marshall and I’m going to recommend Maclin over Murphy this week.

Ken,

I have Arian Foster, Jamaal Charles, Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells in a PPR league. We only start 2 RB’s. Who would you start this week?

Thanks

Foster and Charles, hands down. Just no telling what is going on with the ARI running situation at this point. And they have not been a good offense. If you HAVE to play an ARI back, stick with Hightower.

If Wells plays, then I too go with Foster and Charles.

We start 3 WR in a PPR league. My WR’s are Colston, Crabtree, Harvin, Walter and Breaston. Which 3 would you go with this week.

Thank You

Colston, Walter and Harvin. I want to say Breaston but Harvin at home, as long as he’s healthy, is too tough to pass on for me.

I’d actually go with Colston and Walter, but say yes to Breaston. Tough call there, but I don’t trust the Minny offense or Harvin’s health right now.
