I have been agonizing over this one, since it may help make or break my season. Should I start Joe Flacco vs the Lions, or V.Young vs the Rams at QB for Week 14, the first week of my playoffs? Flacco has been dreadful since the Ravens bye week, and I simply don't think I can trust him. However, nothing fixes a slump better than a matchup against the Lions and their league worse pass defense; Flacco could bounce back with a monster game. As for Young, he has been very good (not great) lately, playing the best football maybe of his career in the past few weeks...and he is playing the lowly Rams this week. Not as bad as the Lions, but definitely a great matchup.
At the moment I'm leaning toward what I consider "playing it safe" and going with Young.
What do you think?
