In a non-PPR league where throwing td’s are worth 4 points, I am starting Eli Manning and have Jon Kitna on the bench. Who should I go with?

Thanks again if you can get to me

trying to win my way into two championship games this week end, in the first league 3 rcpt = 1 pt 1 yd = .1 pt. starting chris johnson at one rb, which 3 i should start with him {we can start 2rb/2wr or 1 rb/3wr}, roddy white, greg jennings, steve johnson, dwayne bowe, jahvid best, or tashard choice, a couple weeks ago this was a good problem, now given some qb situatuions there are some issues.

my other league, 2 rcpt = 1 pt, 1 yd =.1. which 3 wr should be in my lineup along with vick, foster and mccoy ; calvin johnson, tb williams, mike wallace, or steve johnson

thanks for your opinion

Tough. Cold weather in GB and backup Flynn going. I’d go with White, Johnson and Bowe myself. You might consider Best for Johnson but Best has been a non-factor.

Bench Stevie Johnson.

Hi. Non PPR league. Still not sure who I want for my flex start. My options are Ryan Torain, Miles Austin or Mike Williams of Tampa. Any advice? Thanks.

Non-PPR is all about TDs which means it’s all about touches. I always go with the RB if I have the chance. I start Torain.

Wanted to get your thoughts on picking up Kerry Collins against the Texans? I will have Britt in my line up as well.

My regular qbs Rodgers will be out and Cutler has a game outside at night in Minnesota. Uncertain if there is a right call on this one.

LT, Woodhead or Randy Moss, 1 pt PPR, need one to move onto the FINALS!

In another league should I roll with Keller or Sacife at TE, for some reason I am feeling Scaife, and then M.Bush or Edwards for FLEX

And finally M.Bush or S.Greene in my other league

Woodhead, he’s a sneaky play. Tough to go against your gut feeling and you should always be true to yourself first. I roll with Keller though. Edwards is the better play but you don’t want to start both Keller and Edwards if you don’t have to. Why don’t you follow your gut and go with Scaife and Edwards.

Going to be cold in both places. I’d start Cutler against that suspect MIN D. NYJs are falling quickly too and Big Ben could find success … but I’d stick with Cutler.

Forte. I like the PPR aspect of his game and Mendy is slowing down.

I’d roll with BRanch and Gaffney

Hello again. Need help defending my championship in a Dynasty league, standard, non-ppr league.

Start two qb’s: Vick, flacco, roethlisberger. Vick and Flacco are in right now.

Starting Moreno and Peterson (nervously) Only other choices are Lynch and Benson.

My real issue is at WR. Start 3 from this group: Roddy White (given), Boldin, Holmes, Maclin and Britt.

Thank you.

Standard scoring format – non PPR

At QB Schaub or Flacco

At RB Torrain or Felix Jones

At WR Ocho or Knox

At TE Miller (OAK) or Boss

On Def Pitt or Miami

Grossman’s start has me worried about Torrain, but will Felix get enough carries?

Is Miller healthy enough to rely on?

And Troy P’s injury makes me think about using Miami.

Am I over-thinking all this?

Thanks in advance.

You have to go with Schaub for sure. Torain is a must. Felix is in a time share plus Barber might be back this week. Ocho over Knox. Miller is an elite TE. Funny i have the same Def you have and I’m going to keep Pit in.

QB: Schaub
RB: Torain

Yes, you’re over thinking all of it … but it’s good to question things to a point. I make all of those plays and don’t lose any sleep.

Seems to be the question of the week throughout fantasy cyberspace – do I dare think of benching Adrian Peterson in a must-win game? I have Jonathan Stewart as an alternative (and probably the safer pick), but, still, bench AP?

6 pts for TDs, 1 pt for every 20 yds rushing, 1 pt for every 20 yds receiving, NO PPR.

I could never bench AP, even given the circumstances. I want to make sure I can sleep at night first. Stewart isn’t a sure thing enough to play over AP. Goodson is still the 3rd down back and has been running better on 1st and 2nd down as well. Stick with AP

I’ll take Big D.

If it’s PPR, go with Goodson. If not, probably BGE

The Pyrate

I picked up Joe Webb. Start him in a yahoo league as a flex WR or go with Stefen Logan (KR seeing time at RB for Detroit)? Flex spot is a WR/RB position and league awards return yards.

Also in league 2… Owen Daniels at TE or Mike Williams (TB) at a flex spot? League is no ppr, no yardage. Need something big cause Vernon Davis whiffed on Thursday.

PPR scoring…

Jonathan Stewart v ARI or LeSean McCoy @ NYG

McCoy has been great so far, but a tough matchup on the road… Stewart has been coming on lately and has a great matchup at home…

thanks in advance

DLF_Jeff
Reply to  toine
11 years ago

I’d stick with McCoy in PPR scoring. Stewart really hasn’t been as good as he’s looked. A lot of those yards came on one or two carries where he wasn’t even touched. Goodson is running with more speed, dynamic and heart … and is good in PPR. I’m just not sure they’ll continue to feature Stewart.

McNabb will land somewhere and I would bet in Arizona if i had to guess. If this is a dynasty league, I wouldn’t drop him just yet, especially for Kolb or Tebow unless you’re really deep. Tebow is starting today though.

PPR league question.

Start two wide receivers: I have Brandon Marshall, Kenny Britt, Pierre Garcon and Johnny Knox. Who do I start?

I start Peytong Manning, most likely garcon, so should I start Tamme or Zach miller (oakland) at TE?

Who would you start as a flex spot, Ryan Torain, Ronnie Brown, Blount or one of the guys not used up top?

Thanks.

DLF_Jeff
Reply to  trash

Britt and Garcon. Marshall looks pedestrian and uninspired.

Miller is still banged up. Hate starting too many from a single team, but if I’m going to do it, it would be in IND. Start Tamme.

I don’t think TEN has 3 great wide-outs. But, they have a great matchup and good enough WRs with CJ in the backfield … go with Collins.

Stewart in the flex.

Obviously an important match-up. Playing the team from week who ended the season 13-0. Need to win to make the finals.

Heard that Was is rolling with Grossman and the Dallas D sounds incredible appetizing right now. But i’ve had Pitt all year and they’ve done me well. Especially with the struggling Jets tomorrow they also have a decent match-up.

Dal or Pitt????

Need advice. Thanks

DLF_Jeff

Yikes, no pressure. In times like these I go with guaranteed touches and don’t get too cute by over thinking things.

Hi guys,

non-ppr league, semi-finals of a 10 man league, 1 pt every 20 rushing/receiving.

Pick 2:
Moreno
Run-DMC
Hillis
BJGE

I’m thinking Run-DMC and Hillis. Tebow starting for Denver scares me, but BJGE against GB is intriguing.

Pick 3 WR:
Megatron
M Williams (TB)
Branch
Lance Moore
Mike Thomas
Roy Williams

I’m thinking Mega/Williams and Branch.

Bradshaw and Rice. If you’re league allows you to start Webb as a WR this week, go for it.

Reply to  Silky the pimp

My only other cut I could make for either of those guys is Mike Goodson, but I also have JStew so as it stands now, I have carolina backfield covered in a case of injury (I think DWill is not gonna be resigned)…

DLF JeffH
Reply to  Silky the pimp
11 years ago

I wouldn’t cut bait on Goodson, I like him quite a bit and have since he came out. He’s always been an oft-injured player which is what dropped his draft stock, but he’s a dynamic runner. I’m guessing that DWill will be franchised, but will be traded. They won’t just release him because they won’t get any compensation for him.

I wouldn’t rush out to get Flynn. He had a nice game but Rodgers is the guy and Flynn has a long way to go to get snaps. Barber is the better of the two and will likely be playing elsewhere next year.

Week 16 lineup question – only putting it on this thread so I dont forget! .5 PPR – thanks guys!!!

1. Pick one: Owen Daniels or Vernon Davis?
2. Pick one: Steven Jackson or Peyton Hillis (my other confirmed starters are MJD and Ray Rice). Leaning towards Sjax given the matchup of Hillis, though he torched Baltimore for 180 yards and a score week 3… Just seems like defenses have figured him out.
3. Pick one (flex): Fred Jackson (vs NE), Matt Forte (vs NYJ), Tashard Choice (vs AZ) or Sidney Rice. Leaning towards Forte or Choice, and I am hoping with the short week that Felix Jones doesn’t play so I can start Choice. AZ defense run def is horrid and DAL is likely to get out to a lead and I would hope they would lean on the run. Starting any RB against the Jets scares me (Forte). I think NE is going to jump out way ahead of Buff early and they are going to abandon the run, which doesn’t bode well for Fred Jackson. Sidney Rice didnt get any looks with Webb and Donald Brown, well, he is Donald Brown…

DLF JeffH

I’d still play Forte’. I love Jones for 2011 and he was one of my top pick-ups for 2010 considering his future in GB as I believe he’ll be the #2 full time next year. But he’s still too inconsistent in his current role. Go with the guaranteed touches.
