Help Set My Lineup?

Postby broseph jacobs » Thu Nov 22, 2012 12:14 pm

Thought I was on top of the world when I was winning and in 1st place for 5 straight weeks.
Just got knocked down a few pegs with back-to-back losses, and it all came down to my lineup choices.
Now that I'm 50/50 to get into the playoffs, help me out with my lineup so I don't royally screw up again this week

BUMP!

Jeez I've posted on 9 different "WHIR" posts, and nobody has helped me with this.

I don't want to whine, but I give pretty thorough, well-thought-out answers on every post I make. Those of you who have replies from me know that's the truth.

Thanks man
The only thing that has me concerned about starting Ballard is Charle's 20+ targets each of the last two games, compared to Ballard's 16. Nobody knows if Donald Brown is going to come back from his knee injury and create a committee or what, so that has me a little nervous. If I knew Charles and Ballard would get workhorse carries, I would start Ballard for obvious reasons. Almost nobody is picking Ballard over Charles, but I want to believe what you said: Ballard.

Ballard is going against the worst run d in the league, and IND is in the playoff hunt. The Chiefs' season is over, and they will likely be playing from behind because Peyton will tee-off against them. Plus, DEN's run D is #6 in the league. SOUNDS like a Ballard start, right???

How I'd put your line up..

QB = A. Rodgers
RB 1/2 = D. Martin , J. Charles
WR 1/2 = A.J. Green, D. Thomas
TE = J. Witten (Already played)
FLEX = E. Decker
K = S. Gostkowski
D/ST = CHI Bears


Ballard has a great matchup. But with D.Brown playing, and Delone Carter getting some goal-line touches, it's hard to rely on him over Payton's passing game. I'd put Decker in the Flex.

Best of luck

Very thorough and well-thought-out. I am totally rolling with Decker now. You reminded me about Delone at the goal-line.
Thanks! Is there a post I could help you on?

This is exactly what I would do. Decker should have a good day against KC.

Take a look at mine?
