Haha I love it. Bess over Andre the best receiver in the NFL. Started Andre confidently in both my leagues.


Same. As I have done since Week 1.

Today was a valuable lesson in "always start your studs and the guys who got you there". If you got cute with matchups and benched AJ, you missed out on 200 yards and a TD. And 11 receptions if you are in a PPR.

You'd think I would have learned by now. . .

. . . probably cost me my semifinal matchup. When you're wrong, your wrong. And I was wronger than an amputee midget Tijuana donkey show.

ya, I rolled w/ both Slaton and AJ today.

Slaton: 100 yrds rushing, 3 rec, 15 yrds rec. - 16 pts
AJ: 11 rec, 207 yrds rec, TD - 35.2

That would be 51.2 pts from my Texan players alone. Very nice...

I learned this the hard way but luckily I learned it last year in the playoffs, and I'm still alive in most of my leagues now, I agree 100% with this...Although I think AJ was a must-start anyway, you have to roll with your studs in the playoffs otherwise you'll burn yourself.

I don't. I had Favre last year in the playoffs and he stunk it up. I had a back-up who I wanted to play - don't remember who - but I wouldn't because I had to start my stud. I lost.

There is, of course, no be all, end all strategy that is to be used 100% of the time. The main point is not to over-manage, which many people fall victim to. Andre Johnson is a great example of that today. Your Favre example from last year is a great example as to why match ups are considered in the first place. Going completely one way or the other will almost always result in failure -- it's finding the proper balance, and making those tough decisions.
