Week 12 Lineup Questions (WHIR)

Postby zjk924 » Wed Nov 21, 2012 9:39 pm

Hey all,

So I made a post a few days ago about my Week 12 lineup, and I had a couple changes come through to my team, so I'm making another post here with the updated information

12 team league, nonppr, standard scoring

As of right now, the positions in question are:

WR: Dez Bryant vs. Washington
WR: Randall Cobb @ NY Giants
RB: C.J. Spiller @ Indianapolis
RB: Marcel Reece @ Cincinnati
W/R: Vick Ballard vs. Buffalo
W/R/T: T.Y. Hilton vs. Buffalo

Bench:
Julio Jones @ Tampa Bay
Fred Jackson @ Indianapolis
Felix Jones vs. Washington
Mikel Leshoure vs. Houston
Bryce Brown vs. Carolina
Justin Blackmon vs. Tennessee

Honestly, everyone on my bench is very talented, and I feel like I'm taking a big risk benching Julio Jones and Fred Jackson... But both of them are injured, and both Atlanta and Buffalo have very useful alternatives at their disposal (Roddy White and CJ Spiller). Felix Jones is also injured. Normally, I'd put in those 3 guys, but I feel like the only way I'm gonna win this week (I'm up against a very good opponent, who I'm probably going to face in the playoffs) is if I roll the dice. I gues my question is, am I making too much of a risk, putting in Vick Ballard AND T.Y. Hilton? Should I put in Leshoure, whose playing a Texas defense that's usually very good, but just got like up by Jacksonville, of all teams. So many questions!

And of course, WHIR. Thanks

Thanks for helping me out with my question btw. IMO, I think you should keep your lineup as you have it. I like Hilton against Buffalo and Ballard as well. If Jones was healthy, he's a must start, but not knowing even if he's playing, I think Hilton is a good replacement.

Thanks. And you think I should keep the rest of the lineup as is?

WR1: Dez Bryant vs WAS (bad pass d and Dez is on fire)
WR2: Randall Cobb vs NYG (Rogers will light up NY's weak secondary with Cobb, his fav target)
RB1: C.J. Spiller vs IND (he's a beast and IND is ranked 22 vs the run)
RB2: Marcel Reece vs CIN (he's also on fire, and MCF probably won't start again)
W/R: Justin Blackmon vs. TEN (Henne will target him, and TEN is awful at defense)
w/R/T: Vick Ballard vs BUF (he's clearly moved to no.1 in IND, and BUF is 31 against the run)

Hope this helps. I was going to ask for your help on my flex dilemma, but I see you were doing just that while I was doing this. Ha! nice!

I like your lineup as is, but if I'd change anything, I would start Blackmon over Hilton for the reason above.

I would watch the practice reports closely on julio this week. If he's a full go and looking good definitely start him over ballard. Tons of upside with ty hilton, sounds like you need high risk high reward this week and he's your guy. Could debate swapping him for blackmon like stated above but personally I think hilton's ceiling is higher.

Bryce Brown could be an interesting option, too. Makes it tough. Really, if Julio plays, you have to start him. TB is worst in league vs. pass and Matt Ryan will be looking to put last week's debacle behind him. After that I think I'd go VBallard next. Then TJ Hilton and BBrown neck-and-neck.

haha I know.... No one in my league trades, so I've amassed all these great sleepers, and now I go crazy every week trying to secondguess myself.

Thank you for your help. Considering its nonppr, the Colt I'd keep at flex is Ballard over Hilton so the only thing I would switch for you is Julio Jones for Hilton at the flex IF hes playing. Otherwise, Leshoure is the best of your bunch for Hilton.
