Week 2 lineup?

Postby Naps621 » Wed Sep 12, 2012 12:40 pm

I have 2 leagues, both standard. I have put togehter a starting lineup for both just not sure if I am confident with it yet, advice?

League one:
QB - Mike Vick
RB - MJD
RB - Frank Gore
WR - Brandon Llyod
WR - Calvin Johnson
Flex W/R - Lance Moore
bench avail:
QB - Joe Flacco
RB - Steven Ridley
RB - Kevin Smith
RB - Jonathan Stewart
WR - Jeremy Maclin
WR - Mike Wallace

(I don't think Maclin will play and Wallace...welcome to Revis island)

League Two:
QB - Mike Vick
RB - Darren McFadden
RB - Lesean McCoy
WR - Percy Harvin
WR - Julio Jones
W/R Flex - Darren Sproles
bench avail:
QB - Joe Flacco
RB - R. Mendenhall
WR - Antonio Brown
WR - Jeremy Maclin
WR - Michael Crabtree
WR - Lance Moore

(Flex is killing me...I thought maybe Brown since he may get more opt. since Wallace will be covered by Revis and Moore has been a redzone target for Brees...confused!)

leave a link for any forum questions you have and I will drop my 2 cents, thanks!

For league one I agree with pretty much everything, though (as you stated) I would go with Maclin over Moore assuming he plays. Otherwise I like Moore over Wallace due to Revis. I could also see Ridley being worthy of a start, especially if the Pats get a early lead, but with the way Belichick uses his RBs I would wait another week to see if Ridley gets the same bulk of the carries before considering him on a weekly basis.

League 2 I would go with Brown at the flex as I could see him having a solid game with Revis focusing on Wallace.

Thanks for your help.

League Two will be changing a bit... :)

A guy in my league had CJ Spiller on his trade block for WR. Since I had WR depth I figured I would message him and see what if anyone he might be interested in. I thought that he might ask a lot BUT to my surprise he offered a straight trade of Spiller for Lance Moore. I immediately accepted this trade and think I got a STEAL!! The trade is pending until Sat morning, so I could still use help setting my lineup just take Moore off my list and add CJ Spiller!

Actually...I mean I am an Eagles fan but I preferred not to take Vick there was just a run on QBs in the first round. I picked him up in the 5th and 6th rounds, which I thought was a steal. But after his week 1 performance I might start thinking otherwise lol But I am glad I got Flacco to back him up. I picked Flacco up in the last round on both leagues and if he keeps playing like he did week 1 THAT will be my steal lol!

Ridley has huge upside this week at home vs. ARI. I'd play him over the question mark Lance Moore - hard to trust a guy who isn't consistent.

Second league looks great.

League one: Ridley in your flex; all else is fine (though you may consider Flacco instead of Vick).

League 2: Spiller in your flex. He's is all the Bills have with Jackson out for a month. Good matchup. Also, consider Brown instead of Harvin, especially if you get return yds. Brown is playing well and will be only deep threat as Wallace is vacationing on Revis Island.

Thanks for help with mine.
