Well that blew.. I lost by .78 points. Guess it doesn't matter, not going to playoffs anyway. Le sigh

However I am in the playoffs for the league that has no money involved.


Any good picks off waivers for this week?

Im gonna try and get Kaepernick since RG3 might be out Also trying for Kenny Britt

i've been holding on to David Wilson the whole year, hopefully Bradshaw is out this week so I can let him loose against my arch rival this week in the playoffs

Couple questions in my ppr league

In my #2 RB slot should I start BenJarvus Green-Ellis @ Philadelphia or Knowshon Moreno @ Baltimore

In my #3 WR slot should I start Lance Moore vs Tampa or Greg Jennings @ Chicago

thanks

Maybe look at Jennings if the bears secondary still hurt.

Eli vs falcons or luck vs Texans. I'm leaning on Eli, he seems hot right now. But the fear of bad Eli is there.

I would stick with Eli, he is looking good and puts up good numbers against the Falcons. His last 3 games against Atlanta:

277 yards, 3 TD passes
384 yards, 3 TD passes
303 yards, 2 TD passes

Andrew Luck at Reliant Stadium against an angry Houston Texans team is really iffy.

I like Mike Wallace this week. The Steelers are going to play the cowboys hard and with Big Ben back in the mix Mike Wallace is back to being a top 20 WR.

Nope

I needed 26.1 pts. I got 25.8 pts

Decisions Decisions....

So Dez Bryant is apparently not out for the season. I don't trust the 49ers D/ST against New England and I would like to pick up another (Detroit, Miami or Minnesota). I was planning on dropping Dez Bryant but with the news I want to keep him.

Maurice Jones-Drew is still on my bench, should I drop MJD for a D/ST this week? My other people on the bench are Lance Moore and Knowshon Moreno. Even if MJD does come back I doubt I could trust starting him in the playoffs over BenJarvus Green-Ellis or Knowshon Moreno. I could just drop Lance Moore instead of MJD......

Why Miami over Detroit? Detroit is playing the terrible cardinals, even the Jaguars offense looks better than their offense. St. Louis is available but I am starting Adrian Peterson

You don't play SF def against NE at home. Just no.

I have MJD, you've got decent back ups for him so make the move. Or just drop 49ers if you can (only concern is being used against you and your playoff schedule).

I play week 2 week DEF, put in FAAB for Detroit against ARI.

Play to win, this week. Go get one of those top defenses for the week, you're looking at a potential 20 point swing on defense alone between SF and those. That's nothing to sneeze at.

I'm keeping the 49ers defense around because they play KC week 17 and would like the use them if I make it to the championship. I'll just have to part ways with MJD

Oh, smart move then.

And playoffs should NEVER go into week 17. It totally screws over what would be the best fantasy teams of the season. Complete bullshit for a league to do that.

Tell my commish that, he changed it to week 15-17 last year and I don't like it but I have been in this league a while

I'd raise holy hell over it. That's like not doing fractional points in terms of things you just don't do.

Dude our league is all out of whack. 1 ppr, no fractional points, 4 bench spots, 15 rushing yards per point, 30 receiving yards per point, 5 pts for touchdown passes. Me and a couple people are not planning on joining next year with these settings and have brought this up to him.

That's fucked up.

Nothing but luck involved with that scoring.

Yeah you are right Arizona is terrible now but the lions defense hasn't generated many points for fantasy either. I'd say its a toss up between the two. Miami D did get 12 points when they played Arizona.
