Week 6 Start or Sit Advice for a Rookie at 1-4

Postby Toolbox88 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 12:07 pm

This is my first year playing fantasy and the forum has been helpful so far. Finally got decent waiver priority after my worst performance to date and made what I think were decent pickups this week. Could use some advice on who to start. Here's where I'm standing at the moment.

12 Man, Non-PPR, H2H

QB: Matt Ryan
WR: DeSean Jackson, Andrew Hawkins, Reggie Wayne
RB: Law Firm, Jackie Battle
TE: Gronk
Flex: Alex Green
K: Blair Walsh
DEF: Baltimore

BN: Andy Dalton, Brandon Pettigrew, William Powell, Kendall Wright, Josh Gordon

Any help would be totally appreciated and WHIR to the best of my ability.

Well given the players on your roster.....

I would put Alex Green in your RB spot in place of Jackie Battle, with how Mathews did on Sunday you can at this point release Battle as I really don't expect him to contribute much anymore.

If your flex spot allows for a TE then I'd play Pettigrew at your flex.

How many teams are in this league?

Your roster seems very thin....what does free agency look like because I have to believe there are some better options you can start than hawkins or for your flex spot.

Thanks for the input. I was thinking about dropping Battle altogether since Mathews is back. The flex spot does allow for a TE, so I'll throw Pettigrew in.

It's a 12 team league. The waiver wire has been fairly unimpressive( in my inexperienced opinion), but a sample of the high ranked players includes S. Chandler, D. Pitta, K. Ogletree, J. Dreeseen, F. Davis, D. Woodhead, B. Gibson, and A. Jeffrey.

Yeah, Pettigrew is probably your best option at the flex still. If Robert Griffin plays I might go with Davis but both are really a crapshoot.
