Week Seven Lineup Advice

The weekly lineup advice column continues to be one of the most popular features on DLF. Week six featured over 100 different lineup questions submitted and we 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. Just get your questions in by Saturday afternoon to ensure their answered as we can’t promise to get the Sunday morning questions taken care of for you. We’ll do our best, but play it safe!

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!

UPDATE: Just an FYI here, but we get a lot of questions about some players to look at to stay ahead of the waiver curve.  I have my eye on Carlton Mitchell of Cleveland and Seyi Ajirotutu of San Diego this weekend. While neither is likely to make an impact (and neither are recommended plays), you could do worse if you have some extra roster space for a pre-weekend flyer.  You never know, one may go “Danario Alexander” on us.

I am in a 12 dynasty league(PPR) and I just traded Payton Hillis and a 2011 2nd round pick for Steven Jackson was that the correct move? Or should I have stood pat with Hillis?

while I don’t think it was quite that egregious a trade, I do agree that you got the better end of the deal. I think that owner could have sold SJ higher.

I’d go with Wallace and Smith until further notice. I think Wallace will be the most improved fantasy player the second half of the year.

Reply to  steve
11 years ago

Agree with Wallace and Smith, though Gaffney would be a close second instead of Smith. I think Gaffney is actually a bit safer play in a ppr league, but Smith has a higher upside. So it just depends on how you want to play that.

Some QB quandaries..

Romo or a Receiverless Rivers?

And Romo or Orton?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Paradis
11 years ago

I still trust Rivers a lot more even without his weapons. It’s just too hard to figure out Dallas right now and the Giants defensive line is likely going to give him some real trouble.

I’d take Orton vs. Oakland this week over Romo as well.

Reply to  Paradis

Yeah, agree with both above statements.

Been getting lots of good advice from you guys, thank you. I need to choose 2 from the following, no ppr or return yds. What do you think?

S Moss @ Chi
M Williams (TB) v STL
Wells @ Sea
Crabtree @ Car

DLF Ken K
Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

I’d go with Wells and Moss this week. Seattle’s run defense has been pretty good, but Arizona simply has to get Wells involved to be successful. He’s the only one on your list who will get guaranteed touches.

Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

Wells for sure.
I think Crabs is steadily improving and could be a good play here, but I’d probably play Wallace over him, he’s a much safer bet.

Some tough options there for sure. Stewart has been disappointing this year, but is still a dynasty lottery ticket. I see way too many people selling low on him right now.

That being said, Forsett and Butler seem to be the safest choices. I’d go with Forsett.

Reply to  Drew
11 years ago

I’d go with D Alexander here. He’s less proven, but has a great rapport with Bradford. Sam Bradford essentially went to bat for him to get him into Clayton’s vacated spot, because he believes he can be something special. When you QB’s reputation is riding on your success, good things will probably happen. It’s a little more of a dicey play, but I’d recommend D Alexander.

10 team non ppr

My receivers are Calvin Johnson, Hakeem Nicks, Malcolm Floyd, Austin Collie, and Danny Woodhead (wr/rb). Looking ahead to the playoff weeks, should I drop Floyd for Vincent Jackson now while he’s still available? Floyd’s trade value is in question now with the injury and news of V Jax’s return, but is he too good to drop this early? Also, I picked up Woodhead for this weeks injury/bye fill-in instead of Deion Branch (who’s still available.) Good move? .5 pts for rush attempts.

Also, Moreno, McFadden, or Torain as FLEX assuming all are healthy.

Thanks for all the help!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  tim r
11 years ago

I assume this is NOT a dynasty league.

First, I’d look to drop someone else other than Floyd to get VJax if you can. If you HAVE to make that call, I’d stick with Floyd for now. With CJ and Nicks, you’re pretty set. No need to risk too much and give up a few weeks of production you may get with Malcom.

With .5 for rush attempts, Woodhead is likely a better option this year than Branch in a non-PPR. Boy, that’s a serious RB tainted scoring league! Fun for sure, though.

I’d rank your flex as follows:

Torain
Moreno
McFadden

I don’t think you CAN assume they’re all healthy. McFadden will likely give it a go, but it’s tough to say how much work he’ll take away from Bush.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  E. Honda

In a standard redraft league, I would drop Thomas for Starks. Thomas is going to be unreliable for the year and find it tough to carve a role with so many options in Denver. Starks could very well be a playoff hero.

If Thomas is out as expected, Ivory is a good choice there.

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  E. Honda

I like Ivory this week.

Thomas is going to be very unpredictable over the remainder of the year. Starks is a question mark but is going to get a chance to be the starter. I’d pick him up.

I’d go with Smith and Knox. Moore has a better chance to get Smith the ball and Knox is the most reliable of a group of unreliable Chicago receivers. He’s due for a touchdown here shortly.

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

QB: M. Ryan vs CIN or M. Cassel vs JAC

Ryan’s by far the better player but he doesn’t really put together big games. Cassel on the other hand has been hot lately and is playing the Jaguars. Leaning toward Cassel.

RB: J. Charles vs JAC or M. Lynch vs ARI or R. Torain @ CHI

Seems pretty open/close for Charles but I figured I’d ask anyways. Lynch plays the worst run defense but I’m not sold on any sort of production yet from him. Torain could see a lot of touches but he plays a Bear’s defense that’s been fairly hard against the run this year. Leaning Charles.

WR: D. Bowe vs JAC or S. Johnson @ BAL or R. Meachem vs CLE or M. Sims-Walker @ KC or M. Williams vs ARI or M. Williams vs STL (pick 3)

Yeah, so I know I can’t make up my mind, but I have D-Jax injured and Megatron on bye so my WR2/3/4 get tougher. I was planning on starting Bowe, especially after his coming-out party and easy match-up this week so that leaves two. Johnson has been hot but I still view his play as kinda fluky since he’s mainly just getting TDs, plus he plays the Ravens. Meachem looks like a good start and has been getting a lot more attention from Brees these last couple days. MSW *sigh*, this guy just won’t start producing, good match-up but I’d rather not get a goose egg. BMW was force-fed the ball last week and did great, now he has another easy match-up. Tampa Mike is doing great for a rookie but needs to catch a few more of those tosses, plays the Rams so that could be decent though. Leaning towards Bowe, Meachem, and BMW.

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

TE: J. Gresham @ ATL or G. Olsen vs WAS

Olsen has produced a nice big nothing the last 2 weeks for me and I’m fed up with him. Was leaning toward Gresham. Thanks!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  bdynomite
11 years ago

QB: I just don’t trust Cassel at all. Ryan may not be flashy, but he should get you a decent game at home.

RB: I think Charles as well, though Torain is enticing.

WR: Bowe, Mike Williams (SEA), and Meachem seem pretty solid to me as well.

I see one big problem you have. If you were to start Cassel, Bowe, and Charles, that’s extremely risky. I like to refer to that situation as the “Bermuda Triangle.” It’s nearly impossible to take that much risk with three players from the same team each week.

I’d minimize the risk by taking out Cassel and working the other two.

Personally, I’d go with one of SD receivers. Someone’s gonna be catching balls, and while Britt has been automatic for 1 TD a week (odds are somepoint that trend will end) you gotta think the fantasy ceiling is higher for SD’s guys this week. I’d go with Crayton as he’s a more polished and route-friendly receiver.

Non PPR League-Need to start 3 RBs

I have C.Johnson, A.Foster, and S.Jackson but beyond those 3 I don’t have much depth and Foster is on a bye this week. My options to replace him are R.Williams going against a very tough Pitt DE or J.Forsett who I see losing more and more carries each week to M.Lynch. Who would you start Williams or Forsett???

Also in a 2nd league that is non PPR Keep 10 players each year…
Looking for some trade advice and thoughts.

I must start 3 RBs every week and you get 6 on your roster. Mine are F.Gore, C.Benson, P.Thomas, P.Hillis, D.Woodhead, and L.Blount.

What are your thoughts on Hillis and Blount? Do you think Hillis has a future as a feature back or is Cleveland going to find someone to replace/complement him or even give Hardesty a chance next year? And do you think Blount has a chance to start with Caddy being horrible week after week and with Huggins going on IR?

One last question. Should I try to trade Hillis or Blount to help out my team in a different area?

Thanks!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  NorthParkRDB
11 years ago

I’d go with Forsett for question one there. Pittsburgh is just brutal on the opposition right now.

Hardesty is certainly going to get his chance. His injury history is piling up as always, though. I see Blount and Hillis the same way – players who could be short term starters, but not likely long term dynasty gems to build around.

The trade question is more difficult. It really depends on where you are in the standings and how other people value those two. If someone in your league is convinced Hillis will put together those top 15 RB numbers long term and will trade equal value to you, I’d jump on that IF you’re not in contention this season.

Dlf_JeffH
Reply to  NorthParkRDB
11 years ago

Forsett. PIT is just too tough.

Hardesty is going to get a chance but Hillis is really proving something. I like Hillis more than Blount. But Blount may get a chance this year to do something. I don’t see him as an every week starting RB in the future though.

I would capitalize on the opportunity to trade Hillis as the higher valued player right now. I worry about him going back to mediocrity next year.

Maroney is nearly worthless at this point, Hart is a short term option at best. In a dynasty league, you’re getting Celek for Moeaki and Forsett.

That’s not great.

Hey I was wondering about my RB options, I need two of the three.

Knowshon Moreno vs Oakland

Or Cedric Benson vs ATL

Or Peyton Hillis vs NO

Thanks

Until I see more from Moreno, I go with Benson and Hillis.

Benson and Hillis. I worry about CLE being out of it early but I’ll take Hillis over Moreno until Moreno proves he can carry the load again.

Torain, Lloyd, Jennings, and Williams as long as McFadden plays.

Torain. Lloyd and Jennings. Williams. Bush is a nice play if DMC is out.

What are your thoughts on the Colts te situation now that Clark is out for the year. Is Tamme a guy to pick up in any league?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Jeremy

If you have roster space, Tamme is a viable pickup. Most shallow leagues have some better options like Ben Watson, Tony Scheffler, and Anthony Fasano, however.

You want to own Tamme if you have the spot (I picked him up myself) but expectations should be low. He’s a mystery for the last 1/2.

Hmm. That’s interesting. I’d actually roll the dice and go with Williams and Chris Ivory this week.

Williams and Ivory for me as well. Almost want to choose Torain over DWill, but after the bye, DWill should see a lot of touches and has been the best back in CAR.

In a 12 team dynasty (PPR) league, I am bit concerned with Austin’s short and long term value with all of the weapons emerging in Dallas, Roy and Bryant seem to be gaining Romo’s trust. That being said would you trade Austin for Marshall?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  The O'le Ball coach

I wouldn’t do that at all. Marshall’s hips concern me long term and Austin is still the best option on that team. While Williams has played well as of late, his time in Dallas won’t be very long.

Howdy Steve … great to see you here!

I share your concern to a small degree, but not to the degree that I’d make that trade. Marshall is still a head case and Austin is still the WR1 there. I’d stick with him.

You guys are great, I really feel like I have an edge up on the competition. 12 team (PPR) Dynasty: Would you trade Jennings and Graham (NO TE) for Fitz?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  The O'le Ball coach

I assume that’s Greg Jennings and not Rashad!?! Either way, that’s an easy trade I’d do in a dynasty league.

I have Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick in a 4 points per passing TD (-2 pts sack) league. I am thinking Matthew Stafford might be a nice pick up and drop the non starter between Kolb and Vick as soon as I know. Does this make sense?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Vern
11 years ago

Yes, absolutely. Diversifying your lineup is always a good thing. However, it’s going to be pretty tough to know who is the long term starter (or even the short term one) in Philly.

It’s probably going to be week ten or so until we know.

Who is a better speculative pick for the rest of the seasonand playoffs(0.5 points per reception) , Danny Woodhead or Anthony Gonzalez or Demeriyus Thomas? 1st choice? 2nd?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Vern

I think it’s actually Woodhead, Thomas, and Gonzalez in that order. Thomas is certainly the sleeper, though. This is a big week for him.

What’s up guys!

PPR, 12 team Dynasty league.

Dallas Clark is out. I picked up Ben Watson for the week. He is on bye for week 8. I could also go for Gronk, Fasano, Scaife, Tamme on the waiver wire. Not very pretty, I know. What do you think for the rest of the year? Bad enough to trade a WR for a top level tight end? I have a pretty good stable of WRs:

Fitz, Marshall, TO, Kenny Britt, SS-Carolina, Mike Williams-TB, Jordan Shipley, Jacoby Jones.

Pick 5 lineup question also:

I’m starting Marshawn Lynch at RB, along with Fitz and Marshall. I need two more from WRs above. I also have Fred Jackson and Ronnie Brown available, but don’t like their matchups against Baltimore and Pittsburg.

Thanks for all your efforts out here!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  The Vich

If you can move Britt for a really solid option, I’d do it. His checkered past scares me, though it might be a week to late to move him.

Watson is actually a decent option for the rest of the year for you. He’s the best of that group at the moment.

I’d roll with Owens and S Smith as your WRs this week…

Reply to  The Vich

Hey, there he is! Howdy Vich. I was wondering.

You made the same move I did with Clark (I have Clark and Finley). I picked up Tamme, but Scaife has value too. I think Manning will still look Tamme’s way enough. Watson is a better play for the remainder though.

I’d go with TO and Williams.

Harvin, B. Lloyd, Bowe, or Vernon Davis (can start TE in WR flex slot)

You just can’t bench Lloyd right now and I’d stick with Harvin who has put together some nice games of late.

Drop Ricky Williams for Denario Alexander?

Williams is my RB 5. I’m holding him because I have Ronnie Brown, the fins have great playoff matchups, and I want Rickey if Brown gets hurt. But unless or until any of that happens, Ricky just sits there, on my bench.

If I drop him for Denario, maybe Denario goes off again and I can get some trade value from him (or from one of my better WRs, and move Denario up to WR3.)

If I put Williams on the waiver wire, and Denario lays a goose egg this weekend, nobody will pick Ricky up, right? Won’t I still be able to drop Denario and pick Williams up next week?

Reply to  Jason

In an earlier post I commented that Bradford went to bat for Alexander to get him into the lineup. That’s hardly proof positive of long term success, but it is a good indicator of the rapport and belief Bradford has in Alexander. If you are looking at long term value in a dynasty league, and you are not going to hurt yourself by dropping Ricky, then you should take a chance on Alexander. Other factors to consider which might influence this, how valuable are WR’s compared to RB’s in this league, is it a PPR league, etc. But it’s probably a shot worth taking. Good luck!
