Thanks

Ivory
Wright
Allen

Only easy decision is must start Ivory though... after that becomes more preference


Do you think its dumb that I want to put Mendenhall in there over Ivory? Ivory is on the road against one of the better run stopping defenses in the Ravens. And as far as between Allen and Wright I am leaning more towards Wright since I think he is due to at least have a double digit scoring week.

Mendenhall isn't the best running back on his own team.

Kendal Wright is a good looking player, I'm not sure how about he looks on paper...where it matters for this discussion. But he has some upside, certainly.

I know he is not but he is still getting the touches especially on the goal line if there are any.

I almost want to go Ivory, Mendenhall, and Wright this week. I just dont know if you can sit Allen since he is due for a up week after two down ones.

He doesn't have a lot of TDs, but he is pretty darned consistent for at least 60 yards/gm

My leagues point bonuses kick in at 75 yards. So if you're not scoring TDs you better have 75+ yds

That's good. He's got more moves than Mae West...I think he's what Markus Wheaton is supposed to look like next year, if he comes around...

Really?

I don't see that comparison at all tbh.....

I think Wright's more like Welker / Cobb.... Wheaton's the stereotypical burner

Yea, just looked.... Wheaton's a 4.40 40... Wrights a 4.62 (not an insult on Wright), just think that's a really weird comparison

At least that's what I see... Don't see too many long deep post-routes lol

(Also, the speed is obviously bumped up on the video lol)

I just meant that I noticed them both really keeping the play alive with a bevy of moves...in what little I've seen of Wheaton, he'll go to great lengths (including running all over the damn place) to keep the play going...I got that impression from Wright as well...Wheaton will obviously be more of a deep threat, but I felt like Wright and he had a similar skillset in regards to dodging tacklers in tight spaces...I don't know, maybe not...I'll stick to hockey...

They were saying on the internet pre-game last Thursday before they played the Colts that Wright is the fastest slot guy in the league they just wont use him that way. I have him in over Allen this week because I like his matchup better and I am stupid. Last week I did the same thing he got me 8 points and Allen got me 4. I ended up winning by 4 points so I got lucky for once playing the matchup instead of the player for a change.

Am I stupid for considering starting Eli vs the Cowboys over Brady vs the Broncos?

Eli has a really good matchup but the Broncos defense was shredded by Tony Romo earlier this year and Brady > Romo.

I tried to get cute and start Eli earlier this year with favorable matchups, and he still sucked.

Yeah, this is in a league I'm fighting for a playoff spot. Probably better to go ahead and start Brady. Much safer play.

In my other league I'm offering trades like crazy trying to get a decent WR. My RB situation has Bell, Tate, MJD and Rainey. I know those aren't real high profile names, but they will all likely get high work loads the rest of the season. Trying to package one of them and either Witten or J. Thomas for a good WR (Fitzgerald/B. Marshall tier WR) and then whoever.

This is about as crap a start / sit situation an owner can have. I have 4 potential RB's. I can start 2 & Harry Douglas, or 3 of them. Rotoworld's ranks them 14,15,16,17.

Ben Tate, Ridley, Rainey & L. Bell. Currently have Tate, Rainey and Douglas in. I hate the NE situation with Ridley on a week to week basis, Ridley is the only one I think that has the chance to be benched cause of an early fumble. I think the Browns stifle the steelers this weekend, Haden can take Brown out of the game and let them stack the box against the run.

Amendola

I went with Ivory as my RB2 this week but I still need a little help deciding on these guys, need one for a flex and one for a WR non-ppr league.

Mendenhall vs. Indy
Allen @ K.C.
K. Wright @ Oakland
Hicks vs. Dallas
