So I am 3-1 going into the week and am pretty happy with my team, tho I know my RB position is lacking depth..

My team looks like this

Schaub/Dalton
AP/DeAngelo/JStewart/Kendall Hunter
AJ Green/DeSean/Welker/Decker/Amendola
Gronk/Rudolph
Bryant
Arizona D

So I realize that I have a major weakness at RB- so as it pertains this week I am sorta in a bind with the Carolina RB's playing a SEA run defense that hasnít allowed a 100-yard game in 9 weeks or let an opposing RB top 55 yards this season I am scared of playing either... but my only other option is Kendall Hunter. The 9ers play the Bills that just surrendered 243 yards to Stevan Ridley and Brandon Bolden last week so I could see a decent day for them...


So pick one: Stewart/Williams or Hunter

Green Bay DST @ Indy

or

New England DST vs Denver


Points dont count for yards, just points and turnovers


I would definitely go with the Packers, the Broncos offense has been rolling lately.

I'm in a bad way at RB this week. Got DeMarco Murray on a bye the only guys I could pick up were sub-par.

Donald Brown (GB)
Shonn Greene (HOU)
Jonathan Stewart (SEA)
Ben Tate (NYJ)
Pierre Thomas (SD)
Jackie Battle (NO)

I like Battle but I'm worried they are just playing games with Mathews and they'll still give the former first round pick the majority of reps and opportunities to score. Tate could be valuable if they let him score and the game is out of hand early. Jonathan Stewart is a good back but the Seattle defense is so strong that I don't like the matchup.

I currently have Donald Brown as the starter, the rest of the guys are sitting on waivers. I am thinking that Brown will get opportunities in the passing game as Indy plays catch-up against the Packers.

Who would you start? Is Jackie Battle really the starter??

How many am I choosing? Here's who I like in order:

Tate
Brown
Stewart
Greene
Battle
Thomas

I think the Texans can go up in a hurry on the Jets which tends to lead to more touches for Tate. Brown is a solid but low upside play. I do agree that Stewart has a tough matchup, but he looked good last year against Seattle and that defense doesn't play nearly as well on the road. Greene is similar to Brown but I don't like him as much as a player or matchup. I don't trust Battle at all, last week his touches came from Mathews being punished and you'll likely be banking on a fluke TD to get points out of him.

I'll take a #1 RB over a TE any day of the week, even if it is a RB that's been as underwhelming as Johnson has been lately.

Sorry, just need one to take my last rb spot. I am trying to get a last minute trade for Michael turner - if not I may go with Tate
thanks for your help.

Pitta @ KC or Daniels @ NYJ
Does anyone think Hixon is worth a start with Nicks out this week?

The Vikings defense has been surprisingly good this season. The Giants actually tend to perform better on the road than they do at home, so I think I'd actually roll with the Vikings at home against a Locker-less Titans team.

I kind of feel weird about starting Chris Johnson and the Vikings D. I guess I'd be hedging my bets, but it also seems to limit my potential.

I don't think so. They're both strong plays this week. I'd rather start 2 knowing that 1 is going to be good than starting 1 and hoping I chose the right one.

I've scored 551 points and I'm 1-4.

551 points is the 2nd highest in my league. I've scored more points than the two guys who are 4-1. In fact I've scored 103 more points than one of them.

The last 3 weeks I've faced the guy whos scored the most fantasy points in our league.

I hate fantasy football. I don't even know what to do at this point. Right now I think all I can do is laugh.

Pretty much. That does suck but it's part of the game. I know I'm one of the lowest scoring players in one of my leagues and I'm 4-1. But I preach a defensive mindset Wink

Kolb (Buffalo)
Sanchez (Indy)
Wilson (NE)
Weeden (Cincy)
Quinn (TB)
Tannehill (Rams)

I'm thinking about playing Kolb

Please help
