I'm not worried about him practicing, he was travelling to get it checked out. He's good enough that it doesn't really matter if he practices or not.

Rotoworld seems to want to see what he does today.

I think that Richardson's ceiling is so low that I should play Tate at Flex. Richardson outscored Tate by 5 last week, but I think the texans will give Tate more carries in clock killing mode this week at home against the Titans.

Here are the option. D. Richardson, J. Cameron, J. Finley, J. Thomas and B. Tate.


Any thoughts on this? Tough mathcup this week ,might need every point I can get


I would take Richardson for sure and flip a coin between Cameron and Thomas.

Am I reading this right? One person for your TE spot and one for your flex?

Yeah, but I can also play one of the tight ends at the flex over Richardson or Tate.

I would still start Richardson. Arizona is a pretty solid rushing defense, and he still got 25 touches last week and nearly 100 all-purpose yards. His matchup is also more favorable against the Falcons this week. I definitely understand your desire to start both Cameron and Thomas though.

Of course, the only fear is that the game becomes a rout in favor of Atlanta, which is certainly possible.

I have Bears D and AD and they're going up against each other. Should I play maybe the Raiders vs Jacksonville so the Bears and Peterson don't cancel each others points or is that over thinking it? I got burned last week not playing Boldin along with my opponents Kaepernick, and the cancelling of those points would have won me the week.

Do you mean AP? I'd play the Bears D and AP both. I wouldn't want any part of that Jacksonville Oakland game as far as DST goes.

I nearly always avoid starting my defense against one of my key starters.

AD stands for All Day. He actually prefers AD.

The rest of the world knows him as AP. When he starts posting here, let me know. I'll start addressing him the way he prefers.

I was just toying with the idea because Jacksonville's offense is junk and the Bears D didn't look so hot last week anyway. If AD goes off, it just hurts my Defenses score. Like I said, I never really thought of it much either, I only focused on actual on field matchups, but last week I got burned not starting Boldin who my opp had Kaep, and the points would have cancelled each other out enough to get me the win.

I have no problem matching a RB with a DST. the D can still limit scoring and get sacks/picks. Nothing is stopping them from putting up a good number and AP going for 2 TDS, 150 APY

I think it defends on the league too. I would be more apt to do this in a Yahoo league, where teams don't get punished TOO badly for giving up points. For ESPN leagues, forget about it. You start at 22, and that number is slaughtered relatively quickly.

For ESPN leagues, I feel like if you don't get a team that gets tons of sacks and turnovers, don't even bother with a defense.

You shouldn't look at it as having points slashed off the starting value as being an "offset" of your other players' points. The other (and right) way to look at it is, whatever other defense you pick up is going to give up points also, so the imaginery points that you were never going to get that you start out with were never coming your way. Wouldn't you rather be getting points for the scores that are going to slash those points no matter which defense you start? Bears vs. Vikings seems like a great play to me.

I didn't correct you, I was making sure that you were referring to Peterson. I couldn't tell if you were talking about two different things.

Last night reminded my why I took a hiatus from money leagues. I was getting so highly aggravated at Ridley's performance while following the game on stat tracker. I need to just check the box scores the next morning.

I spent the whole game wanting the Pats to win because they're the girlfriend's team and wanting them to lose because I didn't pick them in the survivor league. Then I went to bed at the beginning of the 4th and slept peacefully because I really don't care.

I had Brady and Thompkins playing in my one league. I must have checked while a play was being reviewed because Thompkins had a touchdown and their numbers were pretty decent for a game. Then I look this morning their numbers were turrible... oh well. Such is life.

Yeah he dove going staight in the endzone to catch the ball, but actually trapped it. It would have been pretty amazing if he caught it.

QB: P. Manning vs. Ryan
RB: Martin vs. Gore
RB: McCoy vs. McFadden
WR: Garcon vs. Green
WR: Smith vs. Ja. Jones
Flex: Murray vs. Welker
TE: Davis vs. Olsen
K: ---- vs. Josh Brown
DST: ---- vs. Cincinatti

Do I need to pick up a K and/or D this week? I am favored to win by < 1 point per Yahoo! suggestions.

I personally will never understand just not having a D or K if it's going to be close. Makes little/no sense to me.

Am I missing something on not starting a kicker especially? It makes no sense to me either
