    No worries..

    Im thinking of putting Parmele in instead of Hillman. Shit maybe ballard since buffalo has given up the most point to RBs this year.

    Parmele was the every-down back last week, getting 24 carries and 3 catches to Rashad Jennings' pitiful 3 carries. So he has that going for him. Wouldn't count on 100+ yards or a TD, but if he gets all the work like he did last week he'll probably get you at least 7 points.

    Hillman won't get as many carries but you have to like Denver's offense and their easy matchups for the rest of the year (especially this week against KC). With Manning throwing passes, defenses won't be able to stack the box.

    Ballard isn't a bad choice either, again given the matchup. He's averaged 15 carries a game over the past 5 games.

    They're all close and actually all three have favorable matchups (Titans, Chiefs, Bills). So it's hard to decide who to go for.

    Should I start Edelman over Julio Jones?

    I'm in the same boat bro. Edelman is my next guy up if Jones doesn't play. I really don't trust Jones but I also don't really trust the Patriots' offense. Belichick is the kind of guy that likes to bench a player right after he has a good week for no apparent reason.

    What I'm afraid of is Julio being another game time decision. My only other option is Jeremy Maclin, who plays on Monday and I won't know if Foles or Vick is throwing to him.

    Believe me, I'll be checking the twitters a whole bunch tomorrow.

    Yeah. I've got Ty Hilton to back up or replace jones who's been quiet for a supposed stud receiver. Oh and or nicks. Both draft busts for me but feel like I have to play them for the potential.

    But that potential is getting late and I have to win out to have a chance at playoffs.

    Agree on Vick ballard being top back. I'm starting him. Consistent rbs are scarce now. I'm starting marcel Reese in flex, still think hell get 100 yards even if McFadden plays.

    I'm staying away from Heath miller with the steelers qb disaster, otherwise he was a starter flex.

    Someone just offered me Lance Moore for Ryan Matthews.. LM seems pretty inconsistent but so is Matthews. I am lacking in WR's.

    Don't know if there performance bonuses involved. Either way. Reese has shown great quality performance. They'd be fool to not use him.

    Brees is the #1 QB (At least in my league) and always puts up numbers, plus I really like him as a Saints fan, their is no way I would ever bench him.

    You don't bench studs. Period.

    Steven Jackson vs Arizona, Trent Richardson vs Pit, or Alfred Morris vs Dallas?

    So it looks like Kaepernick is getting the start. Do I play him over Eli? :hmm:

    After what he did. Yes. Bench Eli. Eli has lost stud status.

    My team is on the left. I picked up Colin Kaepernick was thinking about dropping one of the other two QBs in order to pick up Danny Amendola. Do you think i can get by with just two WR or do I need to drop a QB? Drop Emanning or Palmer?

    Man. Your leagues have deep benches. We only have 4 slots. Makes it tough.

    No reason to have more than 2 qb unless a 2 qb league.

    I'd wait to see what Eli does this week before dropping him.

    You've got stud WR so you're good there.

    Glad I picked up garçon. He's looking good.

    To bad he'd on my bench. :(

    But I needed to see how he returned before starting. But dudes got talent and incredible speed and hands.

    Ugh, second week in a row I am going to get a zero from one of my WRs. I should have gone with my gut and played Crabtree over Austin. :(

    I need an answer quick - looks like Julio Jones is cleared to play Sunday, but I wonder if I should gamble with Edelman instead of Jones?

    Shit. I had both Romo and Stafford on my bench. Both had 35+ points. Well, let's hope Luck one ups them

    Grrr was in the process of adjusting my defenses tonight on my phone at around 7:15CST. I was moving the Patriots into my starting DEF over Seattle. Went to hit "save" and it had locked me out.

    Damn.

    They are sitting at 31 points right now in my league. :(
