12 Team PPR, Need some guidance.... WHIR 100%

Postby JohnnyBighead » Fri Nov 04, 2011 8:53 am

12 Team Yahoo League with 1 Point PPR Scoring....
1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex RB/WR/TE, 1 K, 1 Def

QBs- Cam Newton, Josh Freeman, Tim Tebow
RBs- LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Ryan Mathews, DeMarco Murray, Javon Ringer
WRs- Roddy White, Steve Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, Victor Cruz, Kevin Walter
TEs- Jimmy Graham, Brent Celek

Need some help this week.... I have been able to assemble a pretty nice team in a 12 team league... My team has been scoring a ton of points on a consistent basis, but I need some guidance.

Here is what I am thinking for this week...

QB - Freeman(v. NO) / Tebow(v. Oakland)
RB1-LeSean McCoy
RB2- Frank Gore
WR1- Roddy
WR2- Bowe
WR3- Cruz
TE- Graham
Flex- DeMarco Murray/Stevie Johnson

Who starts at QB? Freeman scored 21.5 in my league the first time around against NO... Tebow looks bad, but is still putting up reasonable fantasy numbers... This usually isnt a decision I have to make because Cam is my every week starter.

Who starts at WR3? Usually it would be Stevie Johnson, but he will be taking a picnic lunch to Revis Island and Nicks is a little banged up, which gives Cruz a bump up. I have a hard time trusting Cruz, but he did a good job for me last week.

Who starts at Flex? Should it be the loser of the WR3 battle or DeMarco Murray? DeMarco gets Philly and we all know what they have allowed RBs to do this year.

Let me know what you guys think and let me know if I am way off on anything....

QB: Depends on how your rushing stats are done. If they are yardage heavy, Tebow becomes a sneaky play at Oakland, as we've always had trouble with running QBs. Our LBs are not very good in pursuit, either. Freeman is a safer option as NO's defense tends to bend a lot to decent QBs. I'd roll with Freeman in a standard league

RBs: Definitely Gore and McCoy, they are 2 every-week starters IMO

WR: Stevie Johnson has to start. He's one of those rare quick recievers who doesnt mind going over the middle, and the only way you beat Revis is if you can be a long-threat AND an over the middle threat. Only a handful of WRs I really like vs. Revis, and Stevie is one of them. I'd start Stevie AND Cruz, and make sure DeMarco is riding pine. Not in love with his matchup this week.

Thanks for your help

I agree with GreenBowlPackers on all counts except for flex. I like RBs in flex whenever possible. Go with Matthews or Ringer (CJ2K Lite).

Freeman/Cruz/Murray

Mathews if he wasn't hurt, and you were right about Johnson. I'd rather have herpes all over me than Revis.

I'm putting Tebow in, hopefully can get some value from him this week.

Definitely Cruz as Nicks seems to be out.

For Flex it's hard to tell if Murray will put up a big day, may want to do another reciever for the PPR advantage
