Nice problem to have! ;-D
I don't think Harline will repeat last week's performance. I think SSmith has more yards, but I like Amendola in PPR.

Tough one. I think all three are good options this week, as they are all clearly their QBs #1 option in the passing game.

You have to be tempted on Brian Hartline after what he did last week, I know I am. I am starting him over Garcon this week.

Amendola you also have to like this week, especially when you consider he is facing the Cardinals, who just gave up 250 yards to Hartline last week.

I assume you mean the real Steve Smith and not the other one, in which case it is hard to bench him. I imagine you drafted him to be a stud, but he really hasn't been that yet.

As for picking between them, I am not sure what to advise you, because any one of them could have a big week. I am very tempted to go with Amendola tonight though, as you can bet the Rams will try to mimic what the Dolphins did to Arizona last week.

Does the fact that I have arizona defense change whether I should start Amendola?

In a word: no.

I like Arizona's defense this year, they are playing really well. Their front seven is beastly, and they will get you some sacks. They will also spell trouble for opposing running backs.

However, Arizona clearly had problems stopping Hartline last week, and I think you should hope for more of the same with Amendola.

It seems strange because you will have to root for and against Arizona's defense at the same time, but that is fantasy football for you, you root for weird things sometimes.

Since it's PPR I'd go with Amendola. He's a PPR stud.

Please help with mine!

Too bad Amendola got hurt, he was off to an okay start. Hopefully you did not listen to us. No way to see that coming. Just unlucky.
