    Which RB?

    Hey y'all, I'd love your thoughts on this. .5 PPR league. Should I start D'Onta Foreman vs. PIT or Rhamondre Stevenson at LV? I have Pierre Strong as a contingency if Stevenson were to be inactive, but I'm concerned he'll be active and immediately get re-injured or be active but not play. And since Foreman plays in the early window, I can't wait until the later window inactives are announced to decide. I have Saquaon Barkley and Najee Harris penciled in as my starters since they have the clearest path to a lot of touches (even thought they haven't done much with them recently or, in the case of Najee, at all). Thanks in advance, I appreciate any thoughts you may be able to offer!

    Defense week 16

    I'd probably go DEN. The Rams are a hot pile and DEN can get pressure on the QB.

    Defense Question:

    Yep, Cincy for sure.

    1st week of playoffs

    I would go Winston - the NO offense can up up points and their D is iffy. Shootout potential is much greater in this game. I would go Forte - yes, NYJ really suck bad but SF is terrible against the run and the NYJ gameplan is going to focus on limiting Petty's mistakes by handing the ball off a lot. I would go Cincy D - although RGIII may provide some kind of spark the CLE offense is always a great target. Add the possibility of weather and this could be an ugly game.

    Playoff WR pick-up

    PPR, bonus for rec yardage over 100... I need a little more depth at WR going into the playoffs. I own Julio Jones, Larry Fitz, and Tyrell Williams. Would you add Malcolm Mitchell or Taylor Gabriel to this group? Any thoughts are appreciated!

    Playoff WR pick-up

    Our waivers run tomorrow at 5:00 pm so I've got a little time. If no one puts a claim on either I have until kickoff on Thursday. If Julio's looking iffy, you think Gabriel's the way to go?

    Sad tight end story: pick 1

    Sorry, that's rough! I think I would go with Barnidge, at least he's had a week off to heal.

    Drop Doug Martin?

    Is it time to cut the cord on Muscle Hamster? Or is it worth holding on in case he comes back in a few weeks and rocks it? I can still pick up Jacquizz Rodgers but I don't have any other decent drop options.
  9. Should I kick Tony Romo to the curb in favor of whichever Chicago QB is playing? 6 points per TD, 1 point per 15 passing yards, no more waivers during the playoffs once the Thursday game begins. Romo has a tendency to punk out in December and the Chicago QBs have outscored Romo in my league for the last 4 games (and in total season-to-date points). But Chicago is playing on the road in snowy, windy Cleveland in Week 15 and snowy, windy Philly in Week 16 while Romo gets a cushy home game against Green Bay before heading to snowy, windy DC for Week 16. My other option, assuming that neither McCown or Cutler iwil be named the rest of season starter before tomorrow's game, is to keep Romo and pick up Ryan fitzpatrick and his Harvard educated beard as a backup. I keep going back and forth on this one. Do I trust Romo in December with Fitzpatrick as a safety beard more than a possibly random Chicago QB in the inclement weather? Anyone have any feedback they'd like to offer? Leave a link and I'll answer yours. Thanks in advance!

    I would go: 1. Foles 2. Detroit 3. Thomas, Smith, Patterson I'm usually a take the safe pick and plan ahead kind of owner, but it's the freakin' playoffs. It's time to go all upside and either crush it or look like a jackass. In my mind, Foles has a better chance to thrown a ridiculous number of TDs than Luck. Rivers seems to come up big against Manning, Flacco is - well - Flacco. I think DET has a better chance to pressure Flacco and make him throw some ducks. Thomas is a no-brainer, Smith could come down with the ducks that DET doesn't pick off, and Patterson might get you 2 points but with the added attraction of a possible shootout and special teams potential his upside is hard to ignore. Thanks for mine!

    Pitta or Cameron ?

    Both of those guys could be solid, but it depends on what you need. If you are in all out desperation mode (aren't we all in week 15?) then I think Cameron offers more upside. He could bust out 10 catches for 100+ and a TD or two. He could also drop three catches for 30 yards on you, though. I think Pitta offers a higher floor but a lower ceiling. Given Flacco's man-crush on him, 5 or 6 catches for 40 or 50 yards and a TD seems reasonable. For what it's worth, in my league (PPR with yardage bonuses) the Bears have allowed more points to TEs than the Lions so that makes me lean Cameron as well. Mine? http://www.fftodayforums.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=429569

    RB Help pleeeease

    I concur, you have to go Bernard and hope he busts a long TD on a screen. What do you think about this: http://www.fftodayforums.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=429569

    Fred Jackson or Andre Brown

    I agree, my gut says Brown as well. Playing at home tips it for me - Seattle isn't quite as monstrous on the road.

    Pick 2 out of 3: TRich, Decker, Wayne

    This is a little late, but I would go with Richardson and Decker as well. As you mentioned Decker has been on fire and Haden will likely be shadowing Thomas. Richardson is more of a gut call. The KC game could be out hand quickly, limiting Wayne's upside, and Wayne will be the focus of the KC secondary. The CLE game could also be out of hand quickly, but Richardson can catch passes and is their only real option in the run game. He may not get many yards, but he will probably get a few catches and a TD. Thanks for mine!

    Superbowl RB dilemma

    PPR league, bonuses for lots of yardage, championship (as it is for most if us at this point, congrats!), have to start one of: David Wilson vs. BAL LeSean McCoy vs. WAS Probably won't know Bradshaw's status prior to the PHI/WAS game so at this point it seems like a coin flip. Any thoughts? Leave a link and I'll answer yours. Thanks!

    PPR league, bonuses for big yardage: David Wilson or LeSean McCoy? Yikes.

    QB: All Garbage - Who's Best to Start

    I'd go with Henne, too. He's gonna have to throw the ball 50+ times - he may throw some interceptions but he has shown the ability to put up big numbers. Blackmon and Shorts aren't bad receivers, either, and NE probably won't be able to shut them both down.

    Bears or Broncos Defense?

    Bears are tempting, but I think I'd go Denver at home against a rookie QB, WR, and RB (who has averaged less than 3 yards per carry over the last few games).
  20. A couple of long-time league mates and I decided to start a redraft auction league. We've got five local guys and are trying to fill the remaining seven spots.
