Or more so how does my lineup look for today?

I've debated playing Branch, but I feel this is a must win game at 2-3

Leave a link if you please.

I would play Branch over Wayne. I could even make an argument for playing anyone over Wayne. I have Wayne in a league too, it sucks, I know.

How the mighty have fallen. :-/ I'd agree with lat here. Definitely get Branch in there. The way the Colts are playing, Wayne has no ceiling to speak of...

My one positive that I see with Wayne is that he's 7th in the league in Targets with 47 and 5 redzone targets too. So they're still trying to feed it to him. But I have debated starting Branch over him too, but Branch has given me a goose egg already this year so he's hit and miss.

I don't like it but Branch is your best play. Don't expect much though. If you're lucky the fantasy gods will smile upon you and he'll get a TD but with Hernandez AND Gronkowski both back in the mix I wouldn't count on it.

That stat is misleading because most of those targets came from Kerry Collins. Painter clearly likes throwing to Garcon better.

Week 4 - Garcon 8 and Wayne 8
Week 5 - Garcon 8 and Wayne 7

Indy will be passing today. Or so one hopes to be.

I would leave it... Wayne is a toss up but will get his looks and can make the most of them

I would probably roll with what you have although if I was going to bench Wayne it would be for James Jones, I think he has more upside than Branch.

Thanks for mine
