At QB, should I start Luck versus Tenn or Newton versus Atl? Both at home. Luck has been great lately and Tenn is bad against the pass, but Newton even in a loss put up big numbers on the road versus Atlanta last game.

Slight lean towards Luck and neither...that's gonna be hillman, tamme, dreesen, DT, and Denver's D racking up the points I hope...in a must win my opponent has Manning, Moreno, and Decker...this is the part of fantasy football that I hate.

My question is Miles Austin, Brandon Lloyd, or Justin Blackmon and then Tamme, Gates, or Dallas Clark?

you trust moreno to put up 3 decent games in a row with this one being on the road? If this game goes as I hope decker will throw up early points and hillman getting playing time at end

Cam Newton. Though I hope he tanks and burns this week and tossed 4 picks and runs for negative yardage.

Newton has come on the past two weeks, and had an excellent outing versus the Falcons the 1st game. If it was my team, I would run with newton. Though as mentioned I hope i'm wrong and he sucks badddddd and fumbles and tosses picks.

While scoring TD's the past couple of weeks, he doesn't get a lot of catches. He's a boom/bust. Knee injury and their other WR gets more involved.

Decker?

Shoe fell off. Seems Decker plays well when DT cannot get going. If DT gets going Manning doesn't even look his way and will supplement DT with the Tight ends.. Decker did though had a good game against Oakland last time and the Raiders have **** corners.

Moreno?
20 carries a game and 4 receptions. He has to get into the end zone one of these days. right? Definitely the most disappointing thing about him with the amount of touches he gets.

Tennessee has some of the worst safety play in the NFL. Both Hilton and Avery can abuse them deep. The CBs are decent, so I do expect Wayne to be held somewhat in check on the intermediate throws. The Titans under their new OC want to throw the ball extensively these last few games to get a good look at Locker. This game has the makings of a shoot out, which is good news for Luck owners.

Meanwhile, Atlanta is one of the best defenses against the pass. Their entire secondary is good. They are also coming off a gameplan that completely shut down Jimmy Graham, not good for Olsen. Brandon LaFell, I believe, is out for this game as well. Newton already isn't the best passer and the Carolina O-line is banged up. Meanwhile, the Carolina defense is bad, and Ryan never struggles in back to back games. Newton can get you points by scrambling and scoring, but if the Falcons get up big, which is likely, he'll be forced to pass.

In this particular matchup, I'd say the odds are heavily in Luck's favor to be the higher scoring fantasy QB. Newton is much more riskier, but also has the better chance to hit a homerun (30+ points via multiple rushing scores).

While we're at it...in a PPR league, who is a better bet this week: Decker or Moreno?

Moreno easily.

If the game is close, we'll want to run. If we get up big early, we'll want to run. There's little chance we fall behind or this turns into a shoot out. Thus, the odds favor Moreno.


Moreno's floor is probably 70 yards rushing and 2/10 yards receiving.

Decker's floor is 2/20 receiving.

Both probably have similar overall fantasy point ceilings: 100+ yards, 2 TDs, 4-5 receptions.


I think this is a no-brainer for Moreno personally. The risk is less while his ceiling is equivalent to Decker's.

My question is Miles Austin, Brandon Lloyd, or Justin Blackmon and then Tamme, Gates, or Dallas Clark?

Well, with Shorts dinged up, it's possible Blackmon gets Cromartie, whom will shut him down completely. I'm avoiding him. It's a toss up between Austin and Lloyd. Austin is probably safer, though Cincinnati has a decent secondary and pass rush. Lloyd might be relevant this game against Houston with both Gronk and Edelman out. He hasn't topped 45 yards receiving in a long time though. I think I'd go with Austin if I'm playing the odds.

As for TE, they all probably score similar. Gates has a tough matchup with Pittsburgh and their now-healthy safeties. Both Clark and Tamme have great matchups. Clark probably has more scoring potential, but with Stokley out, I think Tamme gets more overall targets. I expect both to score around 8 points.

If it's Decker vs. Moreno, you gotta go Moreno as he is guaranteed significant touches, Decker is not. Also helps that Oakland is worse against the run than they are against the pass. Then you factor in we will probably play with a decent lead from the 2nd quarter on, we will probably run quite a bit.

I think Moreno goes off tomorrow.

Thanks. Austin has been inconsistent since week 8, and Cincy has a tough secondary. I was considering Lloyd because of the Edelman injury and for Monday Night hope, just in case. Probably won't make my decision until Sunday morning with this little dilemma.

Think with Tamme I'll wait and see if Stokley is out or not before pulling that trigger.

Basically I need to either win this game or lose and hope the 5th place guy loses or lose and if the 5th place guy wins I need to outscore him by 3 points because of the tiebreaker. It's a pretty decent place to be in except he's playing a last place guy so he'll probably win. Really want to make the playoffs in all 3 of my leagues. So far I'm 2/3 and this one would be so nice.

The thing about luck is he only puts up huge numbers when playing from behind. I don't see Tennessee scoring much so that hurts pucks production. Arians try's to run a balanced offense to try and protect his young qb but when they start to get down a lot luck goes tebow and lights it up,

Newton has been hot lately plus I think atl will score putting newton in catch up mode forcing him to put up numbers. I'd go with scam this week

I have the exact same decision this week between Moreno and Decker in a PPR league.

My starting RB's are usually Richardson and Forte. I was prepared to sit Forte and start Moreno instead (easier matchup, Forte's injury concerns, Bush vulture). But then I chose to remove Decker from my flex and stick Moreno in there, starting all 3 RB's.

So yeah, Moreno over Decker.

Remember people, we're not saying Decker sucks IRL. This is FF!

Playoffs beginning! Joe Flacco at Washington or Tony Romo at Cincy? Romo worries me vs Cincy as the Bengals have a great pass rush and the Cowboys OL struggles to protect. Flacco hasn't played well lately either.

Also have a dilemma at WR. I have Wallace, Nelson, Amendola, Harvin, Austin and just picked up Tate. Nelson and Harvin are out. Tate is one starter, so should I go with Austin or Wallace. FAs currently available... TY Hilton, Givens, Britt, or Boldin. Just need one more.

Damn dude, the rankings I use have Wallace as the 42nd ranked wr this week and Austin as the 60th. Boldin is 23rd going with a great matchup against Washington. So pick up Boldin and take the steady production.

And go with Romo. Flacco's on the road where he sucks.

Thanks for the input folks. Leaning towards Luck, but am concerned that with it being a division game it will be tight and they will have a conservative game plan. Also, Newton has just been awful at times this year and all the criticism of him this week will either elevate his play or full tank mode. He is so boom of bust.

The past 4 weeks in FF he has sucked.

In week 12, he was 1 pt less than Moreno in the league I'm in. I'm very much aware of him sucking last week as he's in 3 of my leagues. But comparatively to other WR's, a list which would be quite long, he hasn't sucked half as much as most of them. As far as Moreno, compared to other RB's, he sucks. And for the season, I'd take my chances on Decker over Moreno all the time. Ok, that was kind of a vent towards Moreno. I'm done.

Obviously we dont know how the game will play out, but considering Denver is the better team, with a potentially explosive offense, its possible they may spend more time running it at the end of the game. I think Decker may have the higher ceiling this game, but if the past two contests are any indication, Knowshon's gonna get them touches.

Glad you didn't listen to me. I'm thrilled with Moreno's performance, I just am still pessimistic about it being long term. I hope I'm wrong about that too. Obviously this is why I tanked it in two of my FF leagues this year and unfortunately it was both my money leagues. Went against my own philosophy to not play with my heart, play with my head.

12-11-2012, 04:59 PM
Scheff gets some looks with all the other TE banged up in Detroit but still i think i would go with Pitta. Even though Broncos closed Meyers down that was mostly because he stayed into block. Over the yr though broncos have given up plenty to the TE spot. Just my opinion though.

I was set at TE early in the yr when Vernon Davis was going off but now TE for me a mess. I started Dressen a couple times and got 1 good game out of him. Then I picked up brandon meyers and got several good games. I was lucky to win my playoff game with him throwing at a 0. I was saved by picking up Moreno and having the balls to start him over Ryan Mathews who has been a bust for me.

You almost know moreno will get a few redzone carries and a chance for a td. Miami sometimes doesnt get into the redzone but a few times a game.

I think im gonna go Spiller too....but would you take Reggie Bush (against JAX) or Moreno

My problem with Reggie is the touches. They just aren't there. He did all right against the Niners, but no TD. And as mentioned the Dolphins offense is awful. The only reason you would consider playing him is because the Jags are coming to town and Bush had some success last week.

I just like how Moreno gets the touches, which leads to opportunities and thus last week finally scored. Moreno could've had another TD if Franklin didn't blow his block on the goal line. Moreno is the back for Denver. More so than when Willis was carrying the rock. Young, fresh Moreno verus Willis who had to be spelled more(tired and older).

I picked up Moreno right away n it saved me last week, started him over Mathews :)

OK, Brass Tacks:

RB (2) Murray, Moreno, Mathews, Alex Green?

WR (1) Hobbled Nicks, Britt w tough Jets passing D or Antonio Brown?

TE (1) Rudolph, Sheffler or V Davis?

I'd also wanna know who his WR's are because I would consider flexing a RB. You could easily run any of those backs.

The Skins could lean heavily on Morris or with Cousins starting Cleveland throws everything to stop the run.

I like Murray versus the Steelers since both are battling for playoffs.

Charles could have a wild day versus Oakland.

Moreno will get the touches and could be in for a big game.

Dont start a defense vs Manning. Every once in awhile he takes sacks and throws picks but not very often. I would go with giants but matt ryan might take care of ball well in that one. Work the waiver wire for the jets or the lions if you can and play the matchups vs Titans or Ariz.

RB i would go with Charles and Morris IMO. Charles is an every week starter just because he literally can go 80 yrds on any defense. He wont every week, but he does them in bunches. Morris runs so hard and with rg3 banged up he gets a boatload of work.

I like Moreno and I have to start him because Ryan Mathews just unplayable IMO now. But i worry about Moreno taking a hit and getting his mangina twisted into the hot tub for some rehab.

Yeah Detroit and Miami look like the top 2 defenses this week.

If RG3 plays go Ryan. Hopefully the Giants put up the points and force the Falcons to throw. It's the playoffs. They have a tough matchup at Cleveland. It's not worth the risk.

All of your WR are all solid, but inconsistent. Garcon has been good lately though, but with RGIII uncertain he is a tough play. Decker is inconsistent as well as of late, not getting in the endzone. Austin and Colston are also both hit or miss and on teams with lots of WR, but Austin could have upside now.

Im leaning Austin/Colston for that reason. Hoping Colston sees targets against TB's garbage pass defence but the others im not sure of at all. Jennings has been a total bust for me and has done little other than repeatedly piss me off. I know well im going to bench the **** against Chicago though and he'll come up with 140 yds and 2 TDs. Decker has done the square root of **** all since about week ten now. Garcon was looking good til RG3 got hurt, now i don't trust him with Cousins possibly throwing to him and Haden on shutdown duty. Austin is very risky against that Steelers D too though. Ugh. Not only that but my friend who was one spot above me in waiver priority picked up Danario Alexander for his 5th place playoff semifinal.

The teams in my league really strong because its a 3 player keeper. Same 12 guys going on 15 yrs now. The league is 20 yrs old. I take that back there have been about 3-4 new guys come in over the last 15 since i joined, but they have to take over the existing franchise, so really the keeper aspect never changes.

I am worried because my opponent this week has Brady, but hes going against san fran so maybe he gets slowed down.

Also he has Foster, but he is finally losing carried to tate and IMO they are sort of saving him for playoffs. I bet foster only gets 18-20 carries.

I have a good chance but my main guys are Marshall and Calvin Johnson, jammal Charles. i will have to have big games from them again to win. They have been great most of the yr but i am worried about Cutler being dinged.

Third place will take home around $200 or so, but the two teams in the other division are stronger... Team I am playing against this week has RGIII who has really carried him.

Now what happened with Moore last week? Just sucked along with Colston. But, at least Moore if he doesn't get a TD can grab some yards.

LOL at having a coach for a position. Don't get mad that its stupid.

Why is it stupid?

This is a league that has been going on since the early 90s, back when it was all on paper and figured out by hand, long before anyone here was going on Yahoo or ESPN doing their PPR leagues online. It was the league my dad used to be in. My boss happens to run the league, and is friends with my dad, so he invited me to take the place of a person who no longer worked where we do. So I did.

I think having a coach is a unique aspect to the game. Handfuls of games have been decided this year on whether or not the team someone had won or lost. It is an added dimension and it also implicates draft strategies. It also is another way to score cash -- if you pick the team who has the most regular season wins -- you get the pool of cash associated with the head coaching position.

It was not something I created or came up on my own. It was decided long ago when I was picking studs like Randy Moss, Carl Pickens, etc.

I really enjoy the league. It is tradition and brings up good memories of my father and I growing up. I was always excited to visit him on the weekends and get the latest FF league print off that had hand drawn covers of the match-ups and personalized characters that were based off your team name. Pretty cool if you ask me.

But if you insist on being a petty asshole, be my guest. It is just a matter of time before you make fun of the death of an NFL player and get another vacation. :)

You do not have very good reading comprehension. There was no blame placed. I was merely pointing out that the rules established for this league happened two decades ago. I had no input on the manner because I was 5 years old when it started.

So I ask you once again, why is having a head coach/team dumb? How is it any different than having a team's special teams or defense? People who have the Texans, Pats, Broncos, Falcons, etc. have more points because of wins from those teams than some people do who put out horrendous defenses -- like a guy who has started the Saints every game. Some games are close, some games are blowouts. In the games that are decided by 5 points or less, who you have as a coach plays an important role on whether or not you win or lose. Makes the league unique.

As I said before, you don't have a reason for it being "stupid." You are just being your usual self. Zebras can't change their stripes, eh?

I doubt I will make the switch, but Wilson running the ball if Bradshaw is out can put up big #s. There is nobody behind Wilson if Bradshaw is down. I've been riding the Spiller horse all year so why change now, right? Just a possible switch I'm contemplating.

Do you not have a flex position? I feel like Spiller has been an RB1/2 all year and Wilson would easily replace someone's flex.

Spiller is my flex. And he is a RB1/RB2 quality player. I have like what Wilson has shown. Fresh legs and the potential to be the only guy has me intrigued.

You do not have very good reading comprehension. There was no blame placed. I was merely pointing out that the rules established for this league happened two decades ago. I had no input on the manner because I was 5 years old when it started.

So I ask you once again, why is having a head coach/team dumb? How is it any different than having a team's special teams or defense? People who have the Texans, Pats, Broncos, Falcons, etc. have more points because of wins from those teams than some people do who put out horrendous defenses -- like a guy who has started the Saints every game. Some games are close, some games are blowouts. In the games that are decided by 5 points or less, who you have as a coach plays an important role on whether or not you win or lose. Makes the league unique.

As I said before, you don't have a reason for it being "stupid." You are just being your usual self. Zebras can't change their stripes, eh?

The reason I feel it is dumb is because coaches don't go on the field and play. Special teams and defenses, ummm they actually go on the field and play football.

Coaches coach the game, which is an important aspect of football. Gameplans have an immense impact on the outcome of games. Players are responsible for execution of such plan. You can stop being petulant whenever you please. Trying to bait me into a pissing contest on something I had no control over in fantasy football is childish. Grow up.

Miami or St. Louis? And Luck or Kaepernick?

Both Miami and St Louis playing teams who give up points to defense/ST

For some reason I would go with the Fish. Mostly because i see Adrain Peterson having a big day and maybe Ponder not throwing much.

Hard to sit luck but the Texans defense better then NE made them look. Also NE defense really not that good so Kaepernick probably scores some points even in a loss.

Looking at my site i use, who i think are very good, they say Miami and Luck and I would probably have to agree with that.

Decker. Pitt have too good a D for Austin to get much imo but was thinking about it, with Dez likely in i don't like it. Even if Romo isnt throwing much to Dez he's just going to look for Witten. Baltimore's secondary is in rag order and id like to think Decker will remove his head from his ass now. Jennings is a downfield threat, not much good with Rodgers getting about 2 seconds to throw - he goes to cobb with the short stuff.

1 PPR, 1 point 10 yards, 6 points TD

For the past couple of weeks, my decision has been between Moreno and Decker. This week, with both playing so well and going against the Browns at home, I'm starting them both.

But this means I need to bench one of my former starters. So, who would you start between:

Trent Richardson @ DEN (would never think about benching him, but Denver's D is stout and he is not getting good yardage lately...TD's have been plentiful, however).
Reggie Wayne @ KC (usually a very good PPR play but has only averaged 4 catches/game over the past 3, and failed to reach 10 points in 2 of those games)

Yes, I did contradict somewhat of what I'm saying. I'm just not sold on Decker and would go with Wayne. Now Haden, I presume, plays DT thus freeing up Decker.

It's a choice you have to make. As we have seen if DT gets bottled up/not making catches Manning moves immediately to Decker and targets him. Now do you see Wayne as a "second" receiver on the Colts team? That is your answer(he's not). Though I'm sure you are aware of the dud he put up last week, especially seeing how they had to throw.

They'll likely be in the same situations in their respected games - not running unless either early or if by some fluke they find themselves in the game after half.

I'm leaning towards Trent for the garbage touchdown really. I think that's more likely than the titans getting Cj enough carries to get his yards since hes not the red zone threat Richardson is. Even though the Titans should be playing keep away from a rodg (like the browns) they are so bad I don't see it happening. Playing for the touchdowns seems to be the better play to me.
