Week Six Lineup Advice

The weekly lineup advice column continues to be one of the most popular features on DLF. Last week, we again 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!

Williams is a little nicked up and Kolb is pretty unpredictable. I’d actually go with Smith and Colston.

If Williams is near 100%, I’d go with Williams and Colston. Smith just doesn’t get into the end zone enough. His value is substantially less in a non-PPR format. It’s a toss up between Maclin and Smith otherwise, I’d go with Colston and Maclin.

Dynasty League, PPR, 12 team

What are your thoughts on James Starks? Any worth to him? Is he worth picking up?

Also, is Taylor Price (NE) even worth keeping on my roster now that Branch is in NE?

Pick one: Peyton Hillis, Brandon Jacobs, Willis McGahee
Pick one: Brent Celek, Tony Moeaki
Pick one: Eli Manning, Vick/Kolb (whoever starts)
Pick one flex: Demaryius Thomas, SEA Mike Williams, Joshua Cribbs, or unused RB/TE from above.

Thanks!

Chris Paradis
Reply to  Swanny
11 years ago

IMO;

Starks is worth a pick up if you’re not you have the roster fodder to cut. Without a doubt, I think he’ll be given a shot to be the workhorse. Whether he’s that good, we don’t know. But what i do know is the man hasn’t played a game of football since 2008. There’s injury concerns there.

I’d say its pretty straight forward.
Hillis (so long as he plays)
Celek (Moeaki needs a few more weeks to gain my trust). Celek is the one who’s more likely to blow up (if either do)
I’m going with Mike Williams myself. He’ll be back to full strength, they’ve had a week to prepare, and PC said he wanted to push Mike to be a #1 (basically, lets see if you can handle it)

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  Swanny
11 years ago

Starks MUST be owned in all dynasty formats. He is a Ryan Grant sized back with a similar running style but with more physicality and better vision. His hands are what make him a cut above. I’m concerned about him not playing for going on two years now, but he should be rested. He’s a good kid and will get a shot in the next few weeks.

Price is probably cuttable depending on the rest of your players.

Hillis, Celek, Manning and Williams due to PPR.

I scooped up Brandon Lloyd and Peyton Hillis before or just after week 1 because of your waiver wire suggestions, and needless to say everyone in my league was shocked to see how “brilliant” that was. Thanks for that alone

PPR league
ROMO – QB
PITT – DEF

Need 2WR, 1RB, 1 W/R
Lloyd v. NYJ
Maclin v. Atl
MJD v.Ten
Driver v. Miami
Hillis @ Pit
Murphy @ SF
Colston @ TB

I’m thinking Lloyd, Maclin, and MJD…I like Hillis because he can score even if he doesn’t rush for many yards, which he probably won’t against Pitt. Not sure about Driver if he doesn’t have Rodgers and Murphy/Colston are just starting to come-back from injury/disappointment.

Need your expertise. Thanks

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  Rob
11 years ago

I’d go with what you are thinking. I really want to sit Lloyd vs. the Jets but you just can’t right now. I’d still start Colston over Maclin … but it sounds like you have a gut feeling and I always suggest following YOUR gut feeling over anyone else’s. Trust your inner-FFB’er. 🙂

Reply to  Rob
11 years ago

I would start Colston over Maclin. I think it’s a bit more of a boom or bust play, with how erratic the NO WR corps have been lately, but I’m just not wild about Maclin, and I think Colston has to hit a big game sooner or later, and I believe NO will come out with guns-a-blazing after that loss to ARI.

Like Jeff said, you can’t sit Lloyd right now, plus I bet Revis sits this week to heal up for two weeks to come out of the bye in good shape.

RB is MJD for sure.

Hillis is a tough draw against a PIT team which will be stopping the run and forcing McCoy to beat them. Just doesn’t feel like a recipe for a good game there. I’d probably roll with Maclin in that spot, especially in a PPR league.

HotRod
11 years ago

I need a WR, no ppr or return yds but 5pts bonus for 100+yds. The league scores yardage at 1pt/5yds so it’s more important than TDs (6pts/ea).

Williams v. NO or Crabtree v. Oak

What do you think?

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

If Williams seems healthy I’d start him. It’s close though. Watch the pregames and pour through the beat writers in TB.

Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

I’d actually go with Crabs here. While I’m way not an Alex Smith fan, Crabs production has been steadily increasing each of the last three weeks. I think the new OC there is doing a better job of scheming him, and I think this week, he’ll definitely have more yardage than Williams.

Chris Fisher

Dynasty 12 Team

I am constantly getting hammered to trade Jamaal Charles for Pierre Thomas and Eddie Royal. I would be light at RB this week with Ray Rice and McGahee and Royal would be a good pickup cause I lost Clayton last week. I think Thomas is out.

Should I pull the trigger? I am mixed with JC’s potential although he is small.

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  Chris Fisher
11 years ago

I’m just not a Royal fan. And PT has ability and value but I’m worried about his mounting injuries. JC is young, explosive and is a decent RB2. When bad injuries happen, you don’t want to respond with desperation. I’d hang on to JC.

Reply to  Chris Fisher
11 years ago

If I look at the long term value of those three players, Charles is heads and toes above the other two. I know the temptation to win now can be strong, but you’d definitely regret that one a year from now. Hang on to JC, or ask for more in return for him.

Need help at RB, my top 4 are Moreno, M Bush, Tolbert, D Brown (have Grant & Hardesty on IR for 2011). I have Marshall, Owens, Sims-Walker, Britt & Cribbs (return yardage included) at WR – I have an offer on the table to give up Owens for Ronnie Brown – should I pull the trigger?

Probably have to do it if you want to compete this year. Dynasty? Brown is no great shakes but he’s going to get more carries than most all the other guys save Bush. Moreno is you RB1 if/when healthy … but you could be saying that all year.

Non-ppr, re-draft league.
Pick 2 RBs out of Rice, Forte, PThomas,Best, Foster and Mike Bush.
Need 2 WRs out of Nicks, Calvin Johnson, Knox, Harvin
Need 1 WR or RB for flex spot.

I’m leaning towards Rice and Forte at RB. Nicks and Harvin at WR.
I have PThomas as the flex, but I’m worried he might not be back this week. I’m debating between Foster and Bush if PT can’t play.

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  Riders4Ever
11 years ago

Never sit Rice. And I’d keep Foster in there still.
Nicks and Calvin as long as he’s healthy. Harvin is a tough sit this week. If Calvin is not near 100%, roll with Harvin. If CJ’s a go, I can’t sit him and Nicks is just too hot to sit.

Hi—have just been offered a trade in a Dynasty League-(non-ppr).

Any thoughts??

Chris Paradis
Reply to  Brian

Clearly pull the trigger. Dixon has a promising future and is a sure handcuff. Hall? no one knows what’ll become of him. ARZ could easily flounder their way to a 6-10 season and be amongst the many teams in the Locker/Luck/Mallet sweepstakes.

I highly doubt SF with Dixon and Ginn make an early play on a RB next year. They’re probably more so in the QB hunt next draft.

Good afternoon gentlemen. I am in a PPR league. I need help. Need 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 2 WRs and 1 flex.

My WRs are Britt, Floyd, M Wallace or Amendola
Thanks again.

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  Scott

I’d roll with Flacco this week. Orton vs. NYJ doesn’t bode well. Many believe Ben is going to do well but I want to see it first. Flacco against the Pat defense which is not great is your play. Ben is your #2.

Foster and Drew for your RBs. Nice group there.

Hard to argue against Floyd right now. I’d go with Floyd and Amendola considering the PPR aspect. Wallace is a nice play this week but the PPR of Amendola is tough to pass up.

Jackson is your Flex.

QB2 – Shaun Hill vs NYG or Alex Smith vs OAK? Hill is against a strong Giants DEF, but Smith is liable to get benched early in the game should things start to fall apart. No one else on waivers except McCoy, Campbell, and Gradkowski.

Would you trade Matt Schaub at this time? And would it be more beneficial to get draft picks or players?

I joined a league that has been in place for 10 yrs and received a team that was picked apart. Thankfully, in the last draft I did pretty well.

I am encouraged by your sell high/ buy low strategy. Here is my team:

QB’s:
Freeman, Josh
Schaub, Matt
Tebow, Tim DEN
Young, Vince
RB’s:
Dixon, Anthony
Ivory, Christopher
Jones, Felix
Karim, Deji
Snelling, Jason
Spiller, C.J.
Tolbert, Mike
Williams, Carnell
Starks, James
WR’s:
Bennett, Earl
Bess, Davone
Harvin, Percy
Johnson, Steve
Naanee, Legedu
Tate, Golden
Williams, Damian
TE’s:
Bennett, Martellus
Graham, Jimmy
Moeaki, Tony
K’s:
Bironas, Rob
DEF’s:
Packers, Green Bay

It is a 24 player keeper league, non-ppr. By the Draft we need to cut it to 22 players.

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  Brian
11 years ago

This is an article in and of itself. In short, Yes. Schaub isn’t going to help you win anytime soon. It can be fun to rebuild if you embrace it. I’d trade Schaub and see if you can find a sell high taker for Steve Johnson. Additionally, try to move Martellus to the owner of Witten for a second rounder. Your RBs have the potential to be good in future years.

In your position, it’s tough to get draft picks in return because there’s a high bust factor involved, especially if you aren’t sure it’s a very high pick. Trade Schaub for a younger starting RB1 or for a WR1 to a team in bad QB shape. Multiple starters would go a long way here as well. Perhaps a RB2 + WR2. Known commodities are more important than picks in your situation. Don’t look for one year wonders though … make sure you’re getting a players that are more established.

Got what I believe to be an interesting question concerning QB output this week. I’m considering benching A Rodgers (assuming he plays) in favor of Josh Freeman this week. Normally I wouldn’t even let the thought enter my mind, but what I’m wondering here is this; starting Freeman basically guarantees 20 points taking into consideration his averages this year, and while starting Rodgers obviously provides a ton more upside, what’s giving me pause is my concern over Rodgers making an early exit via a hard hit. Unlike real-life coaches, we fantasy managers can’t throw a back-up QB into play after the games start. Considering how concussions seem to occur with more frequency after the first one, and considering the tendency of teams to play it safe (and they should) in these circumstances, I’m curious to see what play you guys think is the better play here – take the high percentage but lower ceiling w/Freeman, or take the riskier, more upside play w/Rodgers and hope he doesn’t exit the game in the 1st quarter?

That’s a tough choice. Sounds like you’re gut is screaming at you to play Bradshaw. I always advise to trust your own gut … so that way you can sleep at night. Start Bradshaw vs. the Lions, you know he’ll get touches. If it’s a PPR he’s even more solid

Hey Vich … was wondering where you were. Nice team!

Bradshaw, AJ, Marshall, Sjax and Nicks. Tough to sit Megatron and Boldin though. It’s going to be impossible to get the right combination out of those 7 … good problem to have but can be frustrating. Normally I would never suggest sitting Megatron, but with those other choices, you don’t have to risk it. Get the points.

Nicks, Bradshaw, AJ, Marshall and SJax. Megatron is a pretty risky play when you have all of those other great options.

Questionable. I’m not a MSW fan at all so that’s okay there. I look at this as Foster for Hernandez and Jennings. At least you have AP. You have a deeper lineup now but your lineup was more scary with Foster and AP. I’m not fully on the Foster train just yet and I’m a bit concerned about your RB depth now. I’m not a big fan of making trades like that due to injury, especially in that Finley is probably your starter when he returns, next year or later this year.

But, on the surface, the trade is “okay” … but I don’t think I would have made it until Jennings was producing at a higher level. It is PPR so that does help a bit. What happens when Hillis is no longer starting?

PPR, 5pt bonuses for 100 yrd rush/rec.

I have my voltron force of AP, Gore, and Rice at RB… and I really just feel like I dont need to screw up the WR picks. Currently starting Britt, Floyd, Djax, and Wallace BUT! I have Harvin, Williams (TBB) and Megatron as possibles but they each have question marks (and a tough matchup in Johnson’s case) around them. Britt has a good matchup and Young seems to like him (esp. in redzone), if anything I’m thinking about going Harvin over Djax after last week and because Djax hasn’t done anything with Kolb at QB.

Appreciate your thoughts, thanks!

You have to get Harvin in there someplace. I’d start him over Britt.

Reply to  E. Honda

Whew. Tough call.

Britt’s been on fire lately, I’d probably play it safe and go with the hot hand – Britt.

PPR league, 2 QB

QB(pick 1): Hill, Kolb, Freeman, Campbell

Pick 2 (1 WR + Flex):

RB Greene
WR Edwards, Jennings, Mike Williams (TB), Manningham

Kolb
Edwards and Jennings.

Not great choices but the PPR takes you to the WRs.

Reply to  Ross F

Kolb

Not wild abut any of those options.
I think Greene will be a safer bet than any of the WR’s. Then go with Jennings if Rodgers starts, Edwards if not.

Green-Ellis
Brown
T. Jones

Pick two:

Brown and Green-Ellis. Tjones is a close #3 but I’ll take BGE on Monday night, even against a tougher D.

Knox and Bryant if he plays. If not, roll with Tate and pray.

Agree with Jeff on these.

Better RB2 – Lynch or Green-Ellis?

Better fill-in if Calvin Johnson is out – James Jones or Brandon Tate?

Thanks

Lynch has the better matchup and should be motivated.

Need to see something from Tate first, James JOnes.

Reply to  Dlf_JeffH

I’d be nervous about starting Lynch until we see something from him. If you want to play it safe, go with Law Firm. If you want to take a chance on higher upside, take a shot on Lynch.

Agreed re: Jones.

Paul

Who would be a better play…

Aaron Rodgers (If he plays) after his “mild concussion”

or

Vince Young @ Jax

thanks

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

QB: M. Schaub vs KC or M. Ryan @ PHI

I’ve been starting Ryan the last couple weeks and he’s outperformed Schaub but I think this is the week Schaub has a better game. Leaning toward Schaub.

RB: A. Foster vs KC or J. Charles @ HOU

Probably going to roll with Foster but he laid such a stinker for me last week that I’m a little worried. Charles seems to be getting more carries with every week. Leaning toward Foster.

WR/TE: D. Bowe @ HOU or D. Bryant @ MIN or P. Garcon @ WAS or M. Sims-Walker vs TEN

Dez and Garcon are questionable, Bowe hasn’t done much so far this year, and MSW is MSW. Who do I go with here?

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  bdynomite

Schaub
Foster
Bowe. Yuck.

Reply to  bdynomite

I ever Bowe is going to have a breakout game, it’s going to be this week against that awful HOU pass D.

Go with Bowe.

I’d play Ryan over Schuab, and Foster over JC.

TD heavy format

in a bind at RB this week with byes (D.Williams) and injuries (PT and Reggie Bush)

I’m Starting Addai already and have Hart on my roster in case Addai doesn’t go Sun Nt.

I need to pick 1 more from M.Barber @ Min or C.Williams vs. NO

Thanks

I wouldn’t expect much from Caddy, but even then he’s still a better play than Barber, who has looked terrible so far this year.
