Help with lineup!

Postby MadDog36 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 8:56 am

Select one of these:
Jackie Battle @ Oakland (great matchup, will start)
Ryan Torain @ Carolina (even better matchup, but will he start and get around 20 carries)?
Earnest Graham @ Chicago (semi favorable matchup ydg wise, TD upside limited but good bet for 100 yds)
Peyton Hillis/Montario Hardesty vs Seattle (ok matchup, but not sure how carries will divvy up)
Mike Tolbert @ Jets (surprisingly enough great matchup)
Tashard Choice vs Rams (Felix is OUT, but will he be dealt to a team needing a back in time for this weekend's game?)

Dwayne Bowe (my stud he sticks in the lineup) , Jordy Nelson (solid matchup, been productive, but all or nothing type), Brandon Lloyd (dealt, QB is out, but great matchup #1 target in familiar system), Roddy White (ugly matchup), Reggie Wayne, Robert Meachem (both great matchups)

Right now I have:
Battle @ RB-2
Torain @ flex-2
Graham @ universal flex
(do not worry about flex 1 and RB-1 those 2 are fixtures in my lineup every week) (Rice and Mendy)

What I am asking out of these options: What would you go with?
The rest of my week 7 lineup:

QB McCoy
RB Rice, Battle
flex Torain, Mendenhall
WR J Nelson, Bowe, White
TE Watson
K/D do not apply to discussion.

I am confused with Torain's workload and my WR matchups which I could sub in my flex. Graham and Battle I think need to be in my lineup but who would you put in place of Torain (yet another cake matchup) - but those carries how they will be divvied??? Plus Roddy White, while a stud, is just not producing...Lloyd should do great in St. Louis (yes Bradford is out, but I think a #1 WR can do some damage). I snagged Watson for bye week TE replacement (about all that is available and I have McCoy so TD connection there).

The one choice for me comes down to Lloyd or Torain. Lots of variables there and last weeks production of Torain was ugly, but Grossman did throw 4 picks, limiting his opportunities. If my team, I probably go with Torain until I see how Lloyd connects in St. Louis.
