That would make my RB situation extremely dicey for my first playoff matchup this weekend. I need to pick up a RB this week, and I need to figure out what my waiver priorities are.

Is Joique Bell worth a flex play this week? Thinking about picking him up, but I already have SJax and Knowshon Moreno in my RB slots. I would start Shorts in the flex, but he's out indefinitely. And I don't trust Bryce Brown if McCoy is active.

Thanks, I kind of thought so too. Now I need to figure out what to set as a higher priority, since I also need a defense this week (I should have picked up a defense in my bye week, and planned ahead for this). Gonna have to go with Bengals defense I think

I would just thank your lucky stars that you are having to worry about your roster at all this week with the likes of Sjax, moreno, joique Bell and Bengals D in conversation to all be starting for you.

lolol injuries killed my RB corps this year. I have Megatron, VJax, and RGIII as well. I had the highest total points in the league in the regular season, averaging about 120/week. Not too shabby.

I'm not 100% sure about Melichar, but I think in our fantasy matchup this week we may have had the two greatest combined rb totals of the season. I am basically sure that I had the greatest total of the season in our league with Lynch and AP combining for 69.8 points.

I think this is going to depend on Bradshaw and McCoy's status. I really don't think they are going to rush McCoy back since the season is lost. If he is inactive, I think you have to go with Brown even with the subpar week last week.

That was crazy. I would have thought that the week Doug Martin had 56 points I had more than that, but Felix Jones only managed 10 that week, so I'm guessing you're right.

Would you play Romo at home vs Steelers or Palmer at home vs Chiefs?

No. This league belongs to beerman and I, and that will remain true after this weekend.

I still can't believe I lost. Down by less than 20 with Schaub and Welker vs Ridley.

Tynes vs. Atl

Opponent:

Pick 3 RBs for this week:

Knowshon Moreno
Steven Jackson
Bryce Brown
Joique Bell
Demarco Murray

Leaning heavily towards Moreno and Brown, and leaning towards Murray over the other two.

I like your chances. Seems like a pretty close, playoff match up. Rodgers going against your DST will obviously be huge. CJ going against his own defense is kind of nice.

lol Kraftster, I would say so. My quandary is that I can justify starting most of them. I would say Joique Bell is probably the weakest start.

In your situation, I would say Brown for sure. That flex is a tough one.

I wanted to start Murray so that my starters could be: Manning/Mega/Marshall/Martin/Murray

Nice...

Also torn between two defenses. Cincy @ PHI or Denver @ BAL? I am leaning Cincy, but I am also starting Bryce Brown and I generally try to always avoid starting a defense against one of my offensive players.

Yeah, I hate that -- even worse is your own forwards going against your goalie in FH.

I'd probably say Cincy @ Phi, but it is very close. Denver has the better D and BAL has had some stinker games.

I'd also go Cinci, but I normally pay 0 attention to someone playing against my D

Brown, Moreno... flip a coin with Sjax / Murray. Really the only wrong move is starting bell imo.. way too much risk when the other guys are the definite lead backs of their teams
