For the majority, the hour is upon us. Post your discussions, predictions, and questions here. I'll start:



It's down to three RBs to fill my RB2 and FLX slots. Who'd you take out of these? My initial order of choices is below:



1. Danny Woodhead (vs. NYG)

2. Steven Jackson (vs. GB)

3. Pierre Thomas (vs. CAR)



Woodhead and Jackson are going against subpar defenses. Jackson is healthy, and with Atlanta out of the chase, it looks like Rogers will be getting less of the workload for the Falcons. However, Thomas is likely to bounce back, with a home game...even against a tough defense.



What say you?

    I would take Jackson against GB. He put up decent points last week. Woodhead may get a few carries and a couple passes and has done well in PPR leagues.



    I need help!!! My choices for WR (non PPR) are A. Johnson, Decker, Garcon, or Hartline. RB are Gore, Matthews, Miller (Miami), and Tate. Right now I have Johnson and Decker and Gore, Matthews, and Tate at Flex.

    Johnson/Decker, IMO, is an easy decision. Keep them both in- Johnson is going up against Jacksonville and Decker against Tennessee.



    I'm not sure about Tate. He's not putting up good yardage, and competes for redzone touches against Miller and Lynch. Check the waiver wire and see what's available!



    edit: my bad, thought you meant Golden Tate.

    As a giants fan, I like the way our defense is shaping up believe it or not. I didn't watch last nights game, how did thomas run?

    The Saints didn't do anything last night, but the Seahawks were at home and pumped. ****, even Drew Brees only had 7 fantasy points.

    I've had a decent run this year. 4-4 in my PPR leagues and 1-2 in Standard. Only missed the playoffs in the GolfWRX league......it was so bad in that league that I lost to someone who didn't set their roster.....SMH.



    Of the players being discussed: Jackson vs GB should be a decent play. Andre/Decker/Garcon - I own those guys in my experts league and it's been lethal. I also have the Decker/Garcon/Jeffery combo in another league.



    I would be careful with Thomas. In PPR he catches EVERYTHING but his TD's are scarce right now with Graham sucking them all up. At this point I would call him a low flex, but I put him ahead of Miller-woodhead-Mathews



    Also careful with Tate - he's also dependent on TD's but doesn't catch near the balls a fantasy back needs to. But he is a solid flex.





    In a must win in experts league I have to choose from this: Andre Johnson / Roddy White / Decker / Garcon / Michael Floyd / Keenan Allen / Golden Tate.....I also have Vereen / PT Cruiser / McCoy / Forte - Format: 2RB/2WR/TE/2flex - full point PPR.

    I also have Donald Brown available, but Woodhead is somewhat similar to him and Cincy contained him well on Sunday. Colts are @ Cincy this week, so I'm not so sure.

    Tate had a great week this week..100+ yards and 3 touchdowns. Not expecting the same output next week but he was solid last week and poo the week before.

    Texans were better overall this week. He goes as the Texans go....or more specifically.....As Case goes. But I'm echoing your fears. I don't own him on any team, but that sporadic output scares me.

    Depends on PPR or not. PPR, Id put Thomas 2nd and Jackson 3rd.



    Non PPR is more tough, since Woodhead and Thomas are so reliant on the pass.

    Non PPR- hence my reasoning.

    You wanna talk about lucky to survive week 1 of the playoffs? I was up 16 with no one left heading in to last night. My opponent had both Brees and Cameron Jordan... Yeah, I advanced. I owe the Legion of Boom at least a round of beers for that performance

    Finished 3rd in the league that ended this past week to get my buy-in back. 2 championship match-ups this week. In both, I have Foles and dropped RG3 last week and picked up players I thought opponents might be looking at. Doing it again this week, as I'm picking up QB's in both leagues to combat the lackluster QB's on my opponent's squad. In both, dropping Monte Ball and DaRick Rogers to pick up Cutler and Dalton. I'm still going to start Foles in both (most likely), but this prevents them from upgrading to the best available at the position. Might be stupid dropping Ball, but one opponent starts Moreno already and the other has him on the bench. No need going after handcuff's now for them. My big problem is, in one league, Fitz is one of the 2 WR's I'd ridden the last few weeks, and he faces the #1 team against WR's in Seattle. So I'm likely going to have to start Kendall Wright there.

    Jamal Charles, Nick Foles and Eddie Lacy are my 3 work horses on one squad. Megatron, Eddie Lacy and Forte on my other squad.

    I made it to the finals in both leagues that I played in this year. I have a finals matchup with game changer in the golfwrx league. Bragging rights are worth so much more than the money in the other league I play in. Fingers crossed I can pull out a win for the championship in both.

    Loving doubling up on Philly's first drive with Cooper and Foles. Especially since I sat Dalton. Course I was up 30 before this one started and my opponent has DeSean and Crapernick

    I don't watch a lot of football but played in a fantasy football league. I started off like 0-6 but then went on a run and even made the playoffs before losing.



    problem was my RB's were Stevan Ridley and Ray Rice early and both guys were horrific. I also had Knowshon Moreno as my 3rd back but obviously eventually began starting him and signing Benjarvis Green Ellis. I also picked up Riley Cooper off waivers as well as Michael Floyd early in the year.



    So between surprising years from Moreno and Cooper, some good performances late from Floyd. Some timely shifting between my 2 quarterbacks (Dalton and Luck) i went on a nice run

    I've ridden RB's again this season via the 2 stud RB theory.



    Been riding Jamal Charles, Eddie Lacy and a combo of Chris Johnson, Gio Bernard, Zac Stacy or Chris Ivory all year (gambled on Stacy and Ivory in the draft). Got my starting QB for the vast majority of the season (Foles) on waivers and have a hodgepodge of WR's. Cooper and Kendal Wright were starters this week. I stream defenses and kickers weekly.

    LOL, i thought i had good ones!



    If i hadn't drafted Moreno (with the last pick in the draft mind you) or signed Cooper randomly in like week 4....i'd have been toast



    Some of it was luck too. I mean every time i started Dalton he played well. I sat him during all his terrible weeks

    I got Stacy with my last draft pick (I picked 6th so it was 4th to last pick) and picked Ivory with my second to last pick. I always load up on RB's, they're good trade bait.

    It figures... my team, after being the 1 seed and flopping the last two weeks, went OFF yesterday. Donald Brown turned out to be a great flex start!



    Just goes to show that as you get later in the year, the fantasy "studs" are not always a 100% guarantee.

    In my main league, we draft auction style and I spent well over half my money on Arian and Rice. You know how that one turned out.



    In my secondary league, Jamaal singlehandedly brought me a championship.
