Week Five Lineup Advice

The weekly lineup advice column continues to be one of the most popular features on DLF. Last week, we had over 100 different lineup questions submitted and answered each and every one, as promised.

So, all you have to do again 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.

If you want advice outside of the DLF crew, go ahead and post your question in the DLF forum as well. The answers you’ll find here are intended to only be from the founders of this site, so that’s what you’ll mostly see.

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

Let’s do it!

Should I drop forsett and pick up lynch?

Brady
Reply to  Dylan

Yes, He will be the starter

DLF Ken K

It stands to reason that Forsett will be phased into a third down role. I’d value Lynch much more at this point, yes.

In a heartbeat.

Do you make this trade?

Matt Ryan and Rice and LT

for

Mendenhall, Matthew Stafford, and Hines Ward

The Ryan team has Rivers as QB1, with only Ronnie Brown as the other RB. WRs are R. White, Collie, Mike Wallace, Mike Williams

The Mendenhall team has Pierre Thomas and Brandon Jackson as RBs, but is stuck with Stafford and Vick as QB. This team also has Royal, D. Jackson, Braylon Edwards, and Smith (car) as WR.

LT has a tough matchup against the Vikings, but I want to see more from Torain before recommending playing him over what looks to be a top 10 RB this season.

I’d go with LT.

Reply to  Tom G

LT for sure!

HotRod

Which WR do you like and why? no ppr or return yds

Murphy v SD
M Williams @ Cin
Bowe @ Ind
Crabtree v. Phi

Thanks

DLF Ken K
Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

Murphy was clearly not healthy last week and I’m still not sure he’s 100%.

Bowe hasn’t done much at all and even thought the Chiefs will surely be throwing, I don’t trust him.

Crabtree had a mediocre performance, but I still need to see more before trusting him as well.

That leaves a rookie WR against an underrated defense, but I’d still take Tampa Williams off a bye and hope he scores in 3 out of 4.

Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

Pretty much agree with the above. Not a great group to choose from, but bye weeks can be tough. Go with Williams and hope for the best!

Choosing between Dez and Spiller in my flex spot this week.

One thing that may tip the balance: 1pt per 25 return yards. Non PPR.

i have wr problems wondering what you guys think, my number on wr is on bye week (marshall). i have

S.Moss WA at GB
MCCluster KC at IND
A.Benn TB at CIN

im trying to pick up a wr off wavier wire. i need two right now im going with Moss and McCluster.

Reply to  Dan
11 years ago

If I get this right, I think you are asking which two of these three to start. If so, and assuming this is a non PPR league I’d say;

Santana Moss for sure

Benn and McCluster are both total long-shots, but if I had to choose I’d probably go for upside with McCluster, especially if you get points for return yardage.

Dan
Reply to  DLF Ken M

sorry yes i was asking which two to start and it is ppr league, we dont get points for return yards but do for tds that the player returns.

Dynasty PPR

Currently starting: Djax, Calvin, and Harvin

Flex spot: Britt, Williams (TB), or M. Floyd… does Ivory trump all if Thomas is out?

Thanks!

Dan
Reply to  Zangief
11 years ago

i like ivory if thomas is out.

Reply to  Zangief
11 years ago

Absolutely play Floyd there.

Ivory is too much of an unknown, Britt is too inconsistent, Wiliams too unproven. Floyd is a known quantity and the #1 WR on a good offense. SD will probably run like crazy on OAK, but passing opportunities will be there and it would not shock me if OAK focuses on shutting down Gates, leaving their WR’s a little more open.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Zangief
11 years ago

To me, it’s between Floyd and Britt. Kenny has been coming on, but I trust Rivers more than Young. Go with Floyd…

Brutal matchup for Orton this week, but I think he’s reaching must start territory. I’d actually go with Orton and Torain.

bdynomite
11 years ago

From: bdynomite
League Type: Dynasty
Teams: 8
PPR: Yes
IDP: Yes

QB: M. Schaub vs NYG or M. Ryan @CLE

Ryan has a nice matchup while Schaub’s is crappy, I also am hesitant to start Schaub if I’m not sure Johnson is going to play. Was leaning Ryan.

RB: A. Peterson @NYJ or A. Foster vs NYG or J. Charles @IND (pick 2)

I can’t believe I’m considering sitting ADP, please tell me I’m crazy! His matchup is awful and Foster and Charles neither of whom are slouches play terrible run defenses. Argh! Leaning Peterson and Foster.

WR/TE: D. Bowe @IND or D. Bryant vs TEN or M. Sims-Walker @BUF

I always have problems deciding on my 4th receiver, Dez is probably the most consistant of these guys but they all have decent match-ups. Was leaning Dez.

Thanks y’all!

Admin
Reply to  bdynomite
11 years ago

Definitely Ryan, esp. with A Johnson still not at 100%.

AP and Foster all the way to victory!

Tough call between Bowe and Bryant imho. I’d probably go with Dez only because I trust Romo more than I do Cassel.

Good luck!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  bdynomite
11 years ago

QB: Schaub at home, the Giants defense isn’t as good as the Bears made it look.

RB: Foster and Peterson for sure. You just don’t mess with that.

WR: I’d actually go with Dez Bryant as well.

Mikey

Who would you start this week, Rivers or Bradford? I usually don’t question plugging Rivers in but the matchups seem to be telling me to switch it up.
Also, Do you think dropping Kenny Britt for Aaron Hernandez is a good play? 12 team league We start three wideouts and I have Greg Jennings, Hines Ward, Mark Clayton, Braylon Edwards and M.Williams (T.B.) and I have Shiancoe at tight end who I’m a little worried about with Moss coming in.

Thanks

Reply to  Mikey

Rivers for sure.

Yes, Britt has been disappointing so far, and Hernandez should get even more looks now with Moss gone.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Mikey
11 years ago

Heh. Ken M and I aren’t on the same page this week! I think you’ll need Britt during the bye weeks..but it would help if we knew if it was a dynasty league or not!?!

Rivers is your QB. Put him in and walk away.

1. McCoy is too iffy, so take Addai and Pierre.
2. Jennings
3. Jackson if you want upside, Hillis if you want to play it safe.

Pierre Garcon is likely back in the line up this week. So do I start Garcon or Moore (NO). I need all the points I can get. LOL.

Reply to  Steve

With no return yardage, I’d take Garcon IF Collie is out. If there is return yardage and.or Collie plays, I’d take Moore.

Calogero
11 years ago

Unfortunately my league isn’t a dynasty, but I have a waiver wire question – first, here’s my roster (2RB, 2WR, 1W/R no-ppr no return yardage):

QB – Brady
RB – Forte, Greene, Felix, Torain, Hightower, B. Scott
WR – Austin, Welker, Wallace, Knox, Demaryius
TE – Finley

Here’s the problem – Aaron Hernandez is available right now on waivers. Seems like a no-brainer to add him, but I already have Finley at TE and Brady and Welker for the Pats (and on bye) and if I added Hernandez, it’d be strictly for trade value. I don’t foresee any situation where I’d start him over Finley until the week 10 bye.

What should I do:

1. Grab Hernandez and drop Scott (I’m already dropping Demaryius for a plug’n’play QB for this week form Fitz, Hill or Bradford)

2. Keep Bernard Scott or grab and stash another RB sleeper like Derrick Ward, James Starks or Rashad Jennings OR

3. Pick up Lance Moore for this week and plug him in as a starter instead of Johnny Knox. Is he even a better option for Week 5?

Reply to  Calogero
11 years ago

Drop Scott, get Starks as he will almost be certainly starting after week 7.

If you can only start 1 TE, and not play a TE at the flex, then I’ll bet there’s not a huge demand for TE’s, and Hernandez wont have a ton of value. If you can play TE at the flex, go ahead and dron Knox and get him, play him this week, and keep or trade as you see fit.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  DLF Ken M
11 years ago

Agree with Ken M here for sure. There’s no need to pick up players who have “perceived value.” If they don’t fit your team, it’s counterproductive.

Besides, Hernandez won’t have much trade value in your league if he’s already on waivers. If someone wanted him, they would have him already.

Chris Paradis
11 years ago

This is quickly becoming my favorite thing you guys do. We did good last week at crushing my opponents.

So this week, my choices are much more clear cut, though the big one remains..
D-Willy vs a Cutler-less CHI, OR Chris Wells in a game he’s likely to get a chance to back up his talk this week. Whats the consensus on NOS’s rush D?

Other questions include

Romo or Rivers?

Flex TB’s M. Williams or Roll the dice on Moreno?

Reply to  Chris Paradis
11 years ago

Still not sold on that CAR ground game, they are super talented but just too one-dimensional. I’d go with Wells and bet he gets more carries.

Rivers is a safer but, but I think Romo has much more upside this week against TENN, esp after a week off to prep. So if you want to go for it, start Romo.

Moreno’s out for week five, so there’s your answer.

Thanks, and good luck!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Chris Paradis
11 years ago

1.) Two teams with some bad QBs and some defenses that focus on your runners (Williams and Wells). That being said, I’d go with Wells and cross my fingers.

2.) Rivers
3.) Moreno is out…

PPR scoring..Starts 2 rb, 2 wr, and 2 flex(rb/wr) . here is my team

RB:Moreno(@Bal),Addai(vs Chiefs),Torain(vsGB),F. jackson(vs jags),M. Bush(vsSD)
WR: A. Johnson,(vs giants) Bowe(@colts),Royal(@Bal),Lloyd(@Bal), Walter(vs giants)

so out of these guys i need 6 Starters. Obviously if healthy im starting AJ, but im just not sure about the rest. The Bronco passing game is hot and im considering starting both Royal and Lloyd…would that be wise??

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Biggcmo
11 years ago

Two RBs: M Bush, Torain (everyone else shares some)
Two WRs: AJ, Lloyd

You do have some trouble there for sure. You end up with two Broncos or two Texans almost any way you cut it. I’d look to make some moves to diversify your team a little.

If Ryan Grant is available on waivers in a dynasty league, you have to pick him up immediately.

Reply to  DLF Ken K

Especially if you have any IR spots and he wont count against your regular roster, absolutely go for it. If however you have a really small bench, then I suppose it depends on who you have to drop. He is almost 28, and has a few injuries, so I’d temper my long term expectations. But that said, in most cases, I’d say yes, go for it.

Orton for sure.

Reply to  Jeremy
11 years ago

Orton for sure.

Tough choice on the flex… very close between Crabs and Moeaki for me.

I’d probably go with Moeaki only because a) he’ll be looked for a bit more in the end zone than will Crabs, and b) I hate A Smith just a hair more than I hate Cassel.

But I agree, it is close, so there’s no wrong choice. Or maybe, in their case, there’s no right choice…

Also, I sat on Vick (FA pickup while in the joint) for 3 yrs, then sold high last week to my division rival (currently 1-3) for his #1 pick in 2011 (5 rd. rookie-only draft). Schaub is my #1 QB…. Good move? I like Luck out of Stanford; better unproven him then 30 yr. old Vick, or no?

I own Vick. Picked him up earlier this year. IMO you could have gotten more for him. Vick is top 5 QB. I equate him to Peyton and Brady fantasy wise. They are about the same age. He’ll prob play 4-5 more years. If you were to say trade Tom Brady for a 1st round pick. I don’t think it would sound like a good deal.

Walter and Moss…Smith is out this week.

If you get return yardage you can start Knox here, but Cutler is out which makes him risky. I’d go with Walters and Smith.

12 team redraft league. standard scoring no ppr.

My roster: Rivers, Gore, R Brown, J Stew, D Jax, Nicks, M Clayton, Z Miller, Knox, L Evans, J Jones, L Murphy, M Wallace, M Thomas.

Obviously I have tons of depth at WR and am light at RB. I have two trade options: Nicks for Lynch and Tolbert or Nicks for Hillis. Which one or neither?

I’m leaning towards Hillis.

Thanks for the help

In a redraft non-PPR league, I could justify Nicks for Hillis. I’d be against it in pretty much every other format.

mccluster will run through the Indy D with no reliable safety to stop them on short passing routes (the only one matt cassell can throw). There really are so many mediocre passing options in STL, thatyou never know who could get the touches.

14 team, keeper league, PPR.

Pick 2 of Ray Rice, Bradshaw, Deangelo Williams

Pick 2 of Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, Colston (who is really frustrating me!)

Thanks for the help!

Rice and Bradshaw there for sure. Austin and Colston are your easy choices there. It’s still early in the year…

Never sit Rice. Bradshaw draws the start over Dwill this week,

Due to PPR, go with Bryant and Austin. I’m not high on Colston either.

Standard scoring

RB (pick 1): Peyton Hillis (v ATL), Jamaal Charles (@ IND)
WR (pick 1): Desean Jackson (@ SF), Santana Moss (v GB)

Peyton Hillis will probably put up some solid points this week, as always, but is taking a risk on Charles worth the potential pay-off?

Also, will Charles Woodson be enough of a problem for Santana Moss that Desean Jackson will do better even with Kevin Kolb behind center?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Rumford

Hillis is becoming a good option and Charles somehow can’t get carries. I’d go with Hillis there. I’ll take Jackson over Moss every game this year. Don’t overthink it.

Reply to  Rumford

RB: Charles
WR: Jackson

Woodson isn’t a problem until he’s running with the ball.

In a 20 team dynasty league no ppr.

At RB I have F Gore,D Williams, S Jackson,and B Wells. My WR are R Wayne,T Owens,M Clayton,B Berrian,T Ginn. We start 2 rb and 3 wr and a flex. Im thinking i should trade off 1 of my RB’s for a WR.

Who should i trade?

What WR should i try for?

Reply to  Rob Baldwin

i would trade high on S Jackson now. He is still a main feature back, but he has shown that he can be unreliable every week (how many times in the last 3 seasons have you worried about starting him because of injury) Who you should get depends on your QB’s. You could try to get a Calvin Johnson, and then swing for Stafford while he’s injured.

In a TWENTY team league, I’d actually stay where I’m at and wait for someone to approach you. That’s a quality stable of players and there have to be some teams who are really needy at RB.

It also depends on your record. If you’re losing, then I’d actively look at moving Jackson. If not, make a run.

Hi there. Love the blog.

I am in a 16 team PPR league that starts QB, 2RB,2WR,2 WR/RB Flex,TE, K, D. Just looking to load my bench will better players. I am currently sitting on top at number 1 so super sleepers are usually my waivers. We only get one a week, been building the bench up. But currently I am wondering who to drop and pick up.

On my bench I have

Lynch
Sproles
Crayton
Buchalter (Handcuff to No Show Moreno)
Chambers
Crayton
S RIce

My starting lineup looks something like this
Brees
Moreno
Blount
Austin
B Edwards
TO
Maclin
A Gates
Akers
Titans D

I am very weak at the RB situation. Have had Lynch all season so I am excited for that trade. Anyway, I want more WR depth and RB depth. The waiver wire has very small group of people considering it’s a 16 team league. My top choices right now are

James Starks
David Gettis
Stokley
Parish
Lafell
Scott Benard

I am leaning towards James Starks hearing the rumors about him coming back soon to possibly fight for the spot in GB. But I don’t think anyone in my league is looking at him yet, so hopefully pick him up next week considering he can’t be activated until then. But again possibly the news will hit about him being activated and picked up. Do you guys think that getting him now would be better than later, or should I use my pick up on one of the receivers. thanks

Forget Gettis, Grab Clowney if you’re looking for a CAR wide out. Starks, Huggins and Karim should be on your radar for a some stash away RBs for sure. Starks has a lot hype surrounding his return in a few weeks, but the dude’s been a poster boy for Injury Prone Anonymous.

Deji Karim, JAX’s rookie RB. Lit it up in TC & early preseason before hurting his thumb. He’s finally healthy, and Jennings has already been ruled out this week. He’s gonna get some play against BUF for sure, and probably show up as blip on FF radar.

Take a look back at some of the off-season stuff on him. JAX was sporting some serious wood.

Crayton and Chambers can go. I actually think Buckhalter can go as well. Would you play him when/if Moreno goes down? Maroney is still in the mix there, too.

I’d dump those three and get Starks, Scott, and Gettis.

Not quite yet. I’d like to see what the roles are going to be for Garcon and Huggins as they come back from injuries. I don’t see how Garcon gets his job back from Collie right now.

Reply to  C-Bezzy

That’s close but Garcon isn’t exactly lighting it up and with Collie looking great, Garcon could find himself sliding. I’d wait it out another few weeks.

Garrard @ a bad buffalo…or….Schaub vs. a tough Giant Def (1 point per 50 yards passing)

Def
San Diego @ Oak ( San Diego hasn’t been quite as good on road)
Saints @ Arizona

Schaub for sure. Garrard had one good week that followed a horrible one.

I rank your flex plays as Lloyd, Manningham, then Ivory.

I’d go with the Saints against a rookie QB…

Schaub has to start, even though the D matchup isn’t as good. Manningham is one of my top sneaky plays this week.

For your D, I like what SD can do this weak.

Reply to  Goof

I’d go with Naanee as the Panthers passing game is horrible at the moment.

I’d probably play Blount thinking he has the best chance to score. Your TE options are rough. I’d look to the wire to see if anyone else is available. Ben Watson perhaps?

Reply to  Goof

Naanee. I still play Stewart out of that group. WilHo is probably best of the two TEs. Patrick has been a significant disappointment. Is Joel Dreesen available by chance?

Hi Guys!

I’m “TRY” to keep my questions to a minimum this week!

Need 3 WRs: DeSean, Royal, Percy Harvin, Bowe?

Thanks

Best and Foster are your RBs. Your WRs should be Jackson, Royal and Harvin IMO.
