Week 16 Lineup Help!! [WHIR]

Postby MMhawk607 » Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:17 pm

Philip Rivers - QB
Cedric Benson - RB
Steven Jackson - RB
D. Thomas - WR
M. Colston - WR
Rob Gronkowski - TE
R. Mendenhall - RB
J. Kasay - K
Steelers - DEF


Bench:
Lynch
Bryant
A. Johnson (out)
P. Harvin
Roethlisberger
Titans D

my concern is Steven Jackson. He's going against the Steelers (my defense) so it's kind of contradicting to put them both in my starting lineup.. if SJAX scores, the Steelers lose points. I don't want to rely on Lynch. Going against SF, who haven't let up a TD all year is sort of bad.

My other option is to move Mendy to RB and SJAX to flex. Then switch out SJAX for Dez Bryant.
However, the eagles secondary is getting better and Romo likes to pass the ball around alot especially to LaRo.

Kevin Smith is available, should I drop someone to pick him up and put him instead of SJAX?
Should I use the Dez Bryant as my flex? or should I leave as is

Yeah I would switch SJax and Mendy, then start Dez in the flex. I do think Kevin Smith has a good matchup this week, but it's hard to sit Dez Bryant when he has been doing so well lately.

I agree with this as well. It's not a no-brainer but you are playing the matchups.

Thanks for mine.

Definitely swap SJax with Mendy, and start Dez at flex. SJax can't be trusted against SF, especially after what you pointed out. Thanks for helping on mine, good luck man.

My initial thought was going with the 3 RB (including Sjax). Unless you are a huge underdog and need both Sjax and Pitt to explode, I do not usually avoid NFL head to head between my players.

THat said, after reading the near unanimous response of the Board, going with WR Bryant at flex is probably how I would go (and then kick myself afterward if I ended up wrong).

Thanks for all the help with my team. We do have a lot of overlap at both RB and WR. Good luck in your Championship and Merry Christmas.
