Week Fourteen Lineup Advice

You know the deal by now. You ask. We answer.

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. We again figured we’d get this out a little early this week considering we have a game on Thursday. We’ll do our best to answer any questions involving Colts or Titans players first. Hopefully we can get to a few of those before Thursday night’s game!

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.

Here we go…

I’d go with Manningham and Floyd. No sense rolling the dice there.

I like Moeaki and Garrard as well.

Tashard Choice at home vs PHI

Flex WR/TE: James Jones in a Dome vs DET or
Marcedes Lewis at home vs OAK

I need 2: Wallace, Djax, Tolbert

I need 1: Orton or Schaub?

More of a dynasty strategy question than line-up advice as I’m finishing out a rebuilding year. My biggest needs are still at RB and potentially TE.

Right now I have the following RB’s on my roster for development: Frank Gore (IR), Mike Hart, Danny Ware, Tashard Choice, James Davis, Darren Sproles, Isaac Redman, Maurice Morris. (What can I say it’s a deep league with 27 roster spots)

My TE’s: Zack Miller (OAK), Kellen Winslow, Joel Dreessen

– So my quandary is, without worrying about playoff implications (obviously), which of the following players should I target over my existing roster stashes?

RB: Javarris James, Jackie Battle, Tyrell Sutton, Lance Ball, Dimitri Nance, Jerious Norwood on IR, Lex Hillard (MIA), Kory Sheets on IR(MIA), Stafon Johnson on IR (TEN) (these are available players on my watch list)

TE: Ed Dickson

Just an interesting comparison of super deep prospects. Let me know if you have any thoughts.

I think Ball and Dickson are worthy of stashing. Ball is getting a little opportunity at least to show what he’s worth. Heap has been productive, but I think he will begin declining soon and it will be a quick decent.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Tyler
11 years ago

I like Ball over Dreessen long term. I think Sheets and Hilliard can also both be left off. I’d look at Ball and Dickson and get rid of Morris towards the end of the year.

Thanx,

I’ve been watching Sutton since he was drafted. Don’t you think the way Carolina has been holding onto him, despite trade offers is saying something? Or does Goodson have better upside?

Is your brother named Neil?

It all depends on who you’d drop. They’re both pretty worthy prospects, but if you have a shallow roster size, they may still be waiver fodder. I need a little more info to be totally accurate in this assessment. Let me know and we’ll take it from there!

Unfortunately I lost by 2 points last minute and went from a Bye to having to play. I’d really like the win if only for the chance at a rematch next week

0.5 PPR
QB: Freeman or Bradford (Thinking Freeman)
WR: Maclin, Lloyd, Colston, Meachem (Been using Maclin and Lloyd but need maximum production and its hard to know who will hit, feeling maybe Maclin and Colston)
RB: Hillis, MJD, Bush (Pretty set on Hillis and MJD)
K: Bironas or Suisham (essentially which team is weak enough to warrant FGs but stronger enough to get in the position to need them)

Thanks for your help this season, the sites great. I make sure to click a few links when I visit

Alright, thanks to your advice, I have two byes and I need to win this week (and hope a buddy of mine loses) to make the playoffs in my third league!

I have two questions:

Start 3 WR: I have Boldin AT Houston, Mike Williams AT Washington, Gafney AT Arizona, Jacoby Ford AT JacksonVille, Britt (Tonight)coming off injury at home against Indy and a possible Nicks at Minnesota. Which three do you start? I guess 2 scenarios, because I play nicks if he plays, right?? If he doesn’t who do I go with?

The second is a defense question. Do I start Atlanta AT Carolina Or Baltimore AT Houston?

Thank you very much.

Nicks, Boldin and Williams for sure.

I’d go with Atlanta. The Panthers are one dimensional, if that.

Hey Ken, I’m always getting good advice from you and have a playoff matchup this week with a couple of decisions to make.

League is no ppr and scores 1pt/5yds, 5pt bonus at 100yds and 6pt/td. I need 2 WRs and a flex from this group:

Bowe @ SD
Williams @ Was
Crabtree v Sea
Moss v TB
Brown @ NYJ
Wells v Den
Bush v Stl

I figured Bowe was automatic even with last week’s shut out but that’s a tough matchup. What if Cassel doesn’t play?

Thanks again.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  HotRod
11 years ago

Glad to know we’re helping!

Mike Williams (the WAS secondary isn’t that good)
Crabtree
Bowe (even with Croyle)

Stevie Johnson or Steve Smith giants. Smith is a go to play but how much will they target him?

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Marv

Johnson for sure. I like Smith a lot in a PPR, but NOBODY knows (maybe even the Giants) how much he’ll play for sure.

John Vladu

J Jones

well actually Crabtree or Driver.

I’m debating who to flex. Driver, Britt, Wells or Knox

Hopefully you didn’t go with Britt. Crabtree is the best choice there. I also like Orton much better based on his matchup this week.

Here is the issue: Start Kitna or Freeman?

I’d go with Freeman. The Cowboys are relying on the run a lot and are likely to keep doing that to see what they have in Choice now that Dez is out for the season.

I’ll take Ryan against Carolina. Bradshaw and Rice for the others.

So went 4 for 4 in regards to the playoffs however only managed one bye. The injury bug has been killing me as of late so that leaves me with some less than stellar options. HELP!

League #1 PPR

Need to start one: Mike Tolbert, Earl Bennett or Hakeem Nicks.

Nicks would obviously be the obvious choice however if he does play are they really going to let him play the whole game? Where I see kind of a shoot out happening in Chicago and Bennett has really come on as of late.

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Pntgvn2399

Nicks has to be the choice. You just have to assume they wouldn’t throw him in if he wasn’t close to 100%.

.5 ppr also

Orton or Cutler(weather?)

Flex: Blount , Tolbert, Starks, Best, Nicks

Nicks
Blount

Williams, Crabtree, and Stewart for me.

League #3- NON PPR- Calvin and Lloyd would seem to be locks but also have a ton of question marks for this week. Just want to get your input..

Need 3- Calvin Johnson, Brandon Lloyd, Hakeem Nicks, Sidney Rice, Michael Crabtree and Johnny Knox

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Pntgvn2399

Nicks if he plays, Rice if he doesn’t. Pretty straight forward there for me.

Injury plagued team down to Boldin and one of D Alexander Amendola or Jenkins (opposition is playing Ryan) .. Nate Washington is available on waivers .

It’s a TD only league . Playing to stay out of last place as the last place finisher has to cater the 2011 draft .

Best can’t be trusted yet. He looked healthier last week, but he’s not going to be 100% all season.

I’d go with Starks and Goodson. Caddy and the Bushes are tough to guess with. Goodson could be, too, but he should still get 10-12 touches.

Pick 2 RB’s: Arian Foster, Michael Turner, MJD

Pick 2 WR’s: Dwayne Bowe, Miles Austin, Wes Welker, Johnny Knox, Braylon Edwards, Roy Williams, Lee Evans

DLF Ken K

Thanks for everything Coach! You keep us floating. Our goal is to break even (not counting our own time) right now.

Foster and Turner for me at RB
Bowe and Austin at WR. QB issues for both, but they’re both good options. I’d go Welker in a PPR, but stick with these two in a non-PPR, especially since Austin doesn’t have to battle Dez for targets.

Cojo 2020

I need advice for week one of my playoff. Standard format league, non-PPR.

I need to start two RB’s…

ADP vs. NYG (questionable with injury)
Mendenhall vs. CIN (been a bit cold)
Moreno @ ARI (been hot and going against a bad rush defense

Also, I need help with my WR situation…I can start three of these guys…

B. Lloyd @ ARI (Does it affect him if I start Moreno too? What are the odds they both do well?)
A. Boldin @ HOU (Houston’s pass defense is awful)
A. Johnson vs. BAL (Questionable with injury)
R. White @ CAR (Questionable with injury)
D. Bowe @ SD (Tough pass defense, and Cassel may be out or recovering from his appendectomy)

Thanks!

DLF Ken K
Reply to  Cojo 2020

ADP isn’t really THAT questionable. I think you’ll be going with ADP and I actually like Moreno better than Mendy this week, too.

I’d go with Bowe, White, and A Johnson if they all play.

LT and Greene have combined for a grand total of 0 touchdowns since week six. ZERO combined!
