I have a flex question for this week in a 0.5 per catch league.

My options for the flex spot are

K. Moreno
D. McFadden (if he goes)
V. Ballard
D. Williams
D. Bowe
K. Britt
D. Moore

Moreno, McFadden, and Moore are all in the Thursday night game so if I don't go with one of them I'm left with more limited choices on Sunday.

I am leaning towards Moreno, but I already have Manning and D. Thomas starting from the Broncos, so that is a lot of one team action out there and I have concerns about doing that.  Plus Moreno wasn't exactly lights out last week though did have 20+ carries for the second straight week.

Thoughts?

I have 2 rb slots(no flex)

I have foster, ridley, Lynch, Murray and Bradshaw. It is not ppr league.

I've penciled in Foster but who else? Im tempted to pick up Bryce browncould and plug him in. Is that crazy?

Your only real options in my mind are Bradshaw and Lynch.  Both of them will get consistent carries, the goal line carries, and both are playing absolutely terrible rush defenses. My gut says Bradshaw but you really can't go wrong with Lynch (who had a pretty solid game the first time against Arizona).

Brown could work, but McCoy may be back this week so you have to be careful there and he does keep fumbling the ball.  He might start losing carries if he can't control that.

Ridley and Murray are on teams that are too inconsistent to be relied upon given your other options, so I would probably stay away from them when the others are healthy.  Plus Ridley is going against Houston which is one of the best defenses in the league (and against Baltimore and Seattle he did almost nothing).

I guess I'd lean toward Moreno.  My fantasy team relies highly on the Broncos, as well (I start Manning, Thomas, Broncos D, and sometimes Decker, and have Moreno on my bench).  It's served me well thus far.

I'm in a super-Quarter friendly league, where I've LITERALLY played the wrong quarterback every week except twice.  To a fairly marginal sum.

I know what your'e saying, he's probably exaggerating. Here's our season

Week 13:

Started: Stafford (32)
Benched: Luck (52)

Week 12:

Started: Luck (4)
Benched: Stafford (32

Week 11:

Started: Stafford (15)
Benched: Luck (30)

Week 10:

Started: Luck (14)
Benched: Stafford (37)

Week 9:

Started: Stafford (13)
Benched: Luck (42)

Week 8:

Started: Luck (20)
Benched: Stafford (48)

Week 7:

Started: Luck (16)
Benched: Stafford (17) STILL COUNTS!

Week 6:

Started: Luck (9)
Benched: Stafford (30)

Week 5:

Started: Dalton (2)
Benched: Luck (39)

Week 4:

Started: Stafford (24)
Benched: Luck (20)

Week 3:

Started: Stafford (20)
Benched: Luck (40)

Week 2:

Started: Stafford (4)
Benched: Luck (14)

Week 1:

Started: Stafford (20)
Benched: Luck (15)



Have tried every method - logic, flipping a coin, asking advice, going with whatever ESPN says, doing the Costanza (the opposite), asking my sister who has 0 knowledge of football to pick one.

So..... thoughts?

I'd go with Luck.

Why didn't you trade one of them?

Tried to, the only team that was interested in making a move was stacked at every position, and didn't think we'd be able to compete if we gave them a good Qb.

went with Moreno and that was the right call out of my options scoring 23 (britt had 18 and was the closest to him).

My two questions for the week:

Schaub v. Indy or Palmer v. KC


I can start 2 of the following

Green-Ellis @ Philadelphia
Garcon @ Cleveland (RG3 questionable)
Lloyd v. San Fran
Austin v. Pittsburgh

I am leaning towards Schaub, Green-Ellis, and Garcon, but am certainly struggling with the picks.

Yeah, I feel your pain. Neither Schaub nor Palmer give me the warm fuzzies. Schaub, maybe?

I'm going with LawFirm myself in my PPR league. What's Dez Bryant's situation? If he's out, maybe Austin gets more targets. I think that Pitt-Dallas game will see some scoring. Banking on Lloyd to repeat his MNF performance seems a stretch, he's probably my least confident choice there.

I can start two of these at RB, and a third at flex. Not a PPR league.

Demarco Murray (vs. Pitt)
Darren Sproles (vs. TB)
Michael Turner (vs. NYG)
Vick Ballard (@ Houston)

I can also start Greg Jennings at flex over one of the above.

Right now, I'm leaning to Murray and Sproles, but completely undecided on the flex slot.

I think you have to go with Jennings at the flex and Murray is by far your best option at RB.  Without it being a PPR I'd probably go with Turner as the other RB, but I really don't like any of your RB's.

well I went with Green-Ellis for the flex spot.  Pretty solid score so I think it worked out well.  Still haven't decided on the QB or the 2nd WR spot.  If anyone else has any thoughts, let me know.  Thanks.
