Playoffs, round 2 (Who to bench?)**WHIR**

Postby wtr23 » Wed Dec 19, 2012 8:04 pm

Bye bye Bryce Brown, won't be needing you this week. All 3 of my RBs have decent matchups this week, but that's making it tough to decide who starts and who sits this week. Both of my 'studs' at WR have decent matchups, but Amendola came off a great week last week and has an even better matchup. Need some help deciding who to start, leave a link and I'll help with yours ;-D

I have to bench one of the following:

RB- DMC(@CAR), Moreno(vs. CLE), Murray(vs. NO)
WR- Cruz(@BAL), Wayne(@KC), Amendola(@TB)


Do I start all 3 of the backs this week? Is Amendola worthy of a start? If he is, do I bench one of my regular starters at WR or do I stick him in at flex?

That is tough. You'll see I'm going through a similar dilemma with a couple of the same players. I would definitely start all three backs. Then which WR to bench? I may actually bench Wayne and suggest you do the same.

Id sit Amendola and start the others. But if its a PPR I think Id sit Demarco.

Thansk for helping me.

Yep it is PPR, really making things tough this week. I agree that Moreno probably gets the lightest load, but with 2 huge games back to back its hard to bench him. After the duds from BOTH of my wrs I feel like one of them should sit, but I can't talk myself into doing that either :-S

I'd say start all 3 running backs and sit Amendola. It's -all or nothing go with the guys you know will produce and surely some will go off. Amendola is too boom-or-bust this point in the season.
My two cents....
I'm at a quandary as well, here's mine: viewtopic.php?t=532702

I'd actually play all 3 WRs and sit DMC, don't trust him

I'm always RB over WR's so I def think those should all be in and take your flex spot.
Im leaning towards Wayne and Amendola matchup wise.
With NYG you never know what team is going to show up.

Rams still have playoff hope so they have something to play off.
And Tampa has been one of the worst pass defensive teams all year.
Wayne has been hit or miss at times but they are playing Kansas City, if he doesn't get the td's you know he is getting his receptions and yards.
