Alright experts here are my two dilemmas:
RB2: Bryce Brown vs Cincinnati or Reggie Bush vs Jacksonville or Knowshon Moreno at Baltimore.
-I'm leaning towards Bush because the Jags suck... but Bryce has been great 2 out of the last 3 weeks (sucked last week but I had the first round playoff bye)
W/T: Sidney Rice at Buffalo or Danario Alexander vs Carolina or Justin Blackmon at Miami.
-I'm leaning towards Alexander because he had been pretty reliable for the Chargers the last 4-5 weeks averaging double digit points
Moreno against Baltimore. Rice against Buffalo.
How about defense for this week, I have Denver @ Baltimore, Jets @ Tennessee, and Green Bay @ Chicago. I'm leaning towards Green Bay against Chicago as Woodson and Clay Mathews will be back. GB always seems to shut down the bears and Cutler should be his normal Cutler self. Jets against Tennessee is a good match up for them though, tenn running isnt as explosive as it usually is and have been needing to pass which is the Jets strength. Denver is usually a good play as the make a ton of sacks and INT's, but Rice/Flacco/Boldin have been good at home.

Which WR: Torrey Smith, Anquan Boldin, Brandon Lloyd, or Chris Givens (10 team non-PPR league)? Julio Jones and Demaryius Thomas are my other WRs (have to start 3). Smith keeps having bad weeks when I start him and good weeks when I don't.
So I'm gonna pass on playing maclin and leave bryant in the lineup. If Bryant doesn't look like a productive start, I'm gonna sub Crabtree in.
Huge week. Decent matchups.
Also picked up lions defense against a struggling az. Hopefully stafford and leshoure can keep az offense off field.
So on top of my Defense question, Im lost on who I should start at TE. I have Jason Witten and Kyle Rudolph. Witten plays the Steelers who give up the least amount of points to TE's, Rudolph plays St. Louis who gives up the 13th most. Obviously Witten gets thrown to a ton but his lack of TD's and his match up scare me. Rudolph has a good match up but had 0 catches last week and AP has been dominating so I dont know how many chances he'll have in the redzone to make up for yards Witten will get.
I like GB @ Chicago.
Could be a sloppy field, forecast is for rain and SF is usually a mess this time of year.
Anyone pick up Lamichael James (SF-RB)?
Seems that Gore will be getting some rest, and James is eager to prove himself. Could be an interesting play this week, but SF plays NE and the Patriots defense destroyed the Texans last week.
Any thoughts on playing James? He was available in my league so I grabbed him. I am considering starting James in the flex position instead of Greg Jennings or Davone Bess.
I'm sweating bullets on the Bryce Brown call, myself. Cincy's D has been coming on hard the last month or so. Right now I have Brown in my flex spot, starting over Forte. That may change within the next 24 hours though.
I'd go with Danario on your W/T. I benched him last week due to the tough matchup (Pitt), and haven't stopped kicking myself for it yet.
Thank you, Denicos.
Witten. Solid floor. The same can be said about Rudolph, if a floor of "zero" is acceptable to you.
I'd probably go Boldin -- if it were PPR, I'd go Givens, but Boldin (& Flacco) likely have something to prove after the OC's dismissal. Smith is just like you said -- in the stratosphere one week, never takes off the next. Dunno about him; maybe start him if you're a significant underdog.
After the Welker/Daniels debacle, I'm out in one of my leagues. However, I'm in my other league's championship game and need some advice.
I have the Chicago D, but they're going against Green Bay so I'm nervous. Is it stupid for me to drop Jacquizz Rodgers to pick up the Miami D? (they're going against Jacksonville)
For disclosure purposes, I have Arian Foster, Marshawn Lynch, Trent Richardson, and Bryce Brown... so I don't really need Jacquizz nor would I ever play him.
What do y'all think? Miami (vs. Jacksonville) over Chicago (vs. Green Bay)?
I have him on my waiver pickups but only because I have Gore and dont want to get screwed if Gore were to go down this week.
Having said that he got 8 carries to Gore's 12 last week. Guess the best way to think of him is exactly as you would have thought of Kendall Hunter.
Tough call with the 3 you listed. Honestly Bess is probably the safest but the others have more potential.
Depends on your scoring settings, but this guy has Miami ranked the #2 D (behind Detroit ) for Week 15. I'd dump Jacquizz in a frickin' heartbeat.
From the blog Roto Arcade: It's not uncommon to hear or read grousing about the kicker and defense positions in fantasy football. It's all luck, some say. It's too freaking random, someone might offer. Just flip a coin and get it over with, that's how many seem to view this part of the game. I've seen leagues that eliminate the [...]
Yeah, would be good to have James along with Gore.
Agree that Bess is probably the safest of the 3, but he almost never gets touchdowns and has been fairly inconsistent all season.
Detroit was available in my league, so I picked them up and will probably start them over the Seahawks.
Seahawks got me 43 points in my league last week.
Freaking out. Start Stafford this week, or Andy Dalton? Could also pick up Carson Palmer or Nick Foles. Or, hell, Chad Henne or Brandon Weeden. Or Ryan Tannehill or CAPTAIN KIRK!!!!!
No brainer for me, I would start Stafford. He hasn't put up huge numbers, but has been consistent all season and is a safe start.
Jacksonville will throw a ton vs Miami which is their weakness. While Aaron Rodgers is always a scary QB to play against I'd go with Chicago's d. It should be a low scoring games with a couple turnovers. Plus you'll have Hester returning kicks so theres always that upside as well.
I hadn't read that yet. Thanks for the link, I have Shayne Graham and Detroit. It looks like I'm good to go this week. I also have Peterson and Foster, so that helps too.
Who do I play at WR3: Stevie Johnson, Fitzgerald vs. Lions, or Blackmon?
Who at QB: Romo or Roethlisberger?
Rodgers or Freeman? I'm leaning toward Freeman against NO, but Rodgers has sooo many targets...irregardless of da Bears D.
NE or MIA defense?
Freeman will get big points this weekend. It's a toss up for the D's tho, I would hope MIA would get more pts than NE.
I'd go with Blackmon because of the weak opponent and I think I would go with Romo just because hes been avg 45 attempts a game over the past 4 games, but either aren't a bad choice.
No question in my mind Stafford. They will be looking to beat the crap out of Ari after getting their shit pushed in last week. Stafford to Megatron is always a great combo for TDs.
Need advise for my WR3. Standard scoring.
Antonio Brown @ Dallas or Andrew Hawkins @ Philly?
Its easy to say play Brown as he is the big name but when you look at the numbers its much harder.
Alright, I need to play 3 of these: Chris Johnson, Bryce Brown, Ryan Mathews, Demarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Shonn Greene.
It's a PPR league, and I need the highest potential. My opponent is a pretty big favorite right now and I'm without a kicker (had Gould, but used my last move on Brown). I'm leaning towards Johnson, Brown and Mathews, but Murray put up a good point value last week and Sproles always has the potential to catch 7 balls for 50 yards and a couple scores.
