PPR starting help at QB, Flex, and TE

Postby garretterik » Wed Dec 05, 2012 4:54 pm

This was my first 10 team PPR team. I had the first pick in the draft and have an awesome team. I blew away the rest of the league in total points by over 100 points. However, I needed a week 13 win to make the playoffs. 8-o (somehow whoever I faced each week blew up) and I finished 6-7 on the year.

Obviously I am starting Arian Foster and Doug Martin at RB1 and RB2 &
Wes Welker and Brandon Marshall at WR1 and WR2
Bryant is the number 1 kicker
Steelers have a good match up

The questions are QB, Flex, and TE
1. QB (standard scoring +1pt bonus for every 5 completions)
I rode Big Ben until his injury.
Choose 1 from Big Ben v SD, Fitzpatrick v StL, Bradford @Buf, Locker @Ind, Foles @TB, Weeden v KC
2. Flex (PPR FORMAT)
Used Demarco Murray and then Morris mostly in this spot.
Choose 1 from Murray @Cin, Morris v Bal, Stevie Johnson v StL, Boldin @Was, Blackmon v NYJ, Hilton/Avery v Ten, Givens @Buf,

3. TE PPR format
Been using Gates (stud, but SD have sucked lately)
Gates @Pit, M Lewis v NYJ, Tamme @Oak, or Olsen v Atl

1. QB
Revisit this one in a few days..will need to gauge health and weather. If Roethlisberger remains healthy come Friday, then you should probably roll with him. SD is a mess right now.
2. FLEX
Coin flip between Murray and Hilton. PPR might give edge to Hilton.
3. TE
Honestly at TE I'd probably go with Tamme. He has a good match-up against Oakland and got a ton of looks last week. If the Broncos continue to use him in the slot then he could have a big week. Lewis would be my 2nd choice out of that group. Gates has a terrible match-up especially with Polamalu back in Pit's lineup.

For the QB, its tough to gage where Big Ben is gonna be at, if hes looking healthy then start him, if not, go with Fitz.

For Flex, go with demarco, for some reason I just feel like he is gonna have a good game this week

And TE, its hard sitting Gates, but against the pits D and with the whole team playing the way they are I'd go with either Tamme or Olsen. Tamme has the better match up, but I think Olsen is going to get more attention

1. I agree with above to wait and see if Big Ben plays but if he doesnt then I'd go with fits

2.Hilton has a chance for a big day against a weak Tenn defense but I would actually go with Morris. He has been a strong play all year.

3. I'd give Olsen a slight edge over Tamme here. Tamme been getting more looks but Olson has been pretty hot as of late

1. QB - Big Ben if healthy, otherwise Id lean towards Bradford against a bad Buf Def.

2. Flex - Morris based on # of touches.

3. TE - I kinda like Tamme here, especially if Stokely doesn't play
