So I didn't get Kevin Smith ... now what? WHIR

Postby KeithJ » Wed Nov 23, 2011 8:39 am

I was in line for Kevin Smith until Brady's 22 point disaster (yes, for him that's a disaster) dropped a team I was tied with below me. Now, with Peterson being ruled out and the playoffs on the line, I need to figure out who to start (no PPR). I currently have my lineup set as:

QB - Matthew Stafford (vs. GB)
WR - Larry Fitzgerald (@ Stl)
WR - Victor Cruz (@ NO)
RB - Michael Turner (vs. Min)
RB - LeGarrette Blount (@ Ten)
TE - Dustin Keller (vs. Buf)
FLEX - Laurent Robinson (vs. Mia)

Bench
QB - Tony Romo (vs. Mia)
WR - Miles Austin (Vs. Mia) - OUT
WR - Sidney Rice (vs. Was)
WR - Earl Bennett (@ Oak)
RB - Adrian Peterson (@ Atl) - OUT
RB - BenJarvus Green-Ellis (@ Phi)
RB - Jackie Battle (vs. Pit)
TE - Dallas Clark (vs. Car)

I think this is pretty much the best I can put out there. Gerhart and Ogbonnaya are available on the wire but I really don't like either of their matchups this week.

Any suggestions?

Post a link for help.

I think you have it right. I could see an argument for starting Romo over Stafford based on him doing well on Thanksgiving day but I like Stafford matchup alot. good luck!

I'd stick with the starting lineup that you have at the moment.
BJGE and the rest of the New England RB's could have a good day against PHI, but it's tough to know which one Belichick with give the majority of the carries to... it's a roll of the dice.

You got it right, Blount is not a bad backup for AP especially if he can keep doing what he did last week. Not an awful matchup. That is a tough call between Romo and Stafford though, really a coin toss even though I know that's not what you were asking about.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=509214
