QB/RB HELP-MUST WIN***WHIR***

Postby goodwidp » Tue Nov 27, 2012 2:20 pm

Need to win and have the 6th place team lose and I'm in the playoffs. Have questions about my QB and RB situations that I would love some advice on.

Standard scoring, non-PPR.

QB: Romo (vs PHI) or Freeman (@DEN)

Leaning towards Romo but he's far from consistent and Freeman could bounce back after a poor week 12 performance.

RB: (Choose 2 only)

Spiller (vs JAX)
LeShoure (vs IND)
B. Brown (@DAL)
McFadden (vs CLE)
Murray (vs PHI)

Leaning towards Spiller/LeShoure for now. Brown literally saved me with his week 12 breakout, but I doubt he's capable of repeating that type of performance. DMC and Murray are no guarantee to even play so not sure how much I trust them assuming they do suit up.

As always, any help is sincerely appreciated and will be reciprocated. Leave link for WHIR. Thanks!

Go with Romo. Denver D is going to sack Freeman all day. And Eagles situation is a mess right now. Not to mention, Romo is at home, whereas Freeman is on the road.

As for running backs: Murray and Mcfadden are out. Now, Spiller is an obvious start against Jax, and Bryce Brown is also an obvious start (I have both of them myself, actually- they're amazing). Leshoure is good, and he'd be a great flex spot addition, but that matchup is the weakest of the bunch.

I agree with zjk, start Romo, the Eagles just got torched by Cam and Co. As far as your RB situation is concerned, I'd start Spiller no matter what and it's a tough decision between Bryce Brown and Leshoure, but I'd take Leshoure against the Colts. What are the odds of Bryce Brown repeating that in back to back weeks? Sure the kid may be a special talent, but it'll take time for him to develop consistency. Leshoure vs the Colts D is what I'd rely on.

Romo for sure. The Eagles are playing terrible these days.

For RB, no question, you start CJ Spiller. 2nd one I'd go with Leshoure

Romo without question, same with Spiller. If McFadden plays I'd go him. They have taken their time easing him back so I doubt they would worry about him and a full workload. They also have see Palmer implode week after week so would probably want to keep it on the ground.

If DMC doesn't go (unlikely) I'd go with Brown. The Eagles will probably shut down McCoy (or at least give him another week for the concussion). He seems like he can do damage anytime he touches the ball and that could be a shoot out. Thanks for your help.

I agree with most here. Play Romo and Spiller. I would go with Brown over Leshoure though. (This is assuming DMC doesn't play.) Brown will get lots of carries and check downs with Foles still starting. Good luck.

I'm gonna go with romo, philly has been a mess lately, take advantage of that. As for RB, spiller is the obvious one, safer bet would be leshoure, going up against a bad defence, but brown might be the better play this week
