Sanity Check for QB, RB & WR delima

Postby dpscanlan » Thu Nov 29, 2012 2:19 am

I have a couple of tough choices this week at QB, RB & WR

This is a non-PPR league. I start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX, 1 k , 1 DEF. My initial choices are in Red text. :

QB - RG3 or Eli Manning
RB - A. Foster, Bryce Brown, Marcel Reece, Jonathan Dwyer
WR - Greg Jennings, Vincent Jackson, Jordy Nelson, Danario Alexander, T.Y. Hilton
TE - Jimmy Graham
FLEX- Choose from RB or WR (my initial choice in BLUE)
K - Phil Dawson
Def - Chicago Bears

RG3 has been solid all year but you never know with Eli on Monday night against the weak Redskin Defense.

Foster is a no-brainer. Was Bryce Brown's performance a fluke or will he go off against the struggling Cowboys? Marcel Reece has been solid the past two weeks but if McFadden and/or Goodson are back that will probably reduce his touches. Jonathan Dwyer has been named the go to RB for the Steelers but with Big Ben out there probably won't be much offense.

WR is really my toughest choice. Vincent Jackson against Champ Bailey historically hasn't been very good. Greg Jennings is back but will he get much action, will he take away opportunities from Jordy Nelson? T.Y Hilton has been solid recently and should have a good match up against the Lions this week. Danario Alexander is the only decent player for the Chargers but do I take a chance on him.

Finally, do I go with a 3rd RB or WR at my FLEX position?

I have been completely over thinking this to the point where I definitely need a sanity check.

Thanks in advance.

I would say move Alexander ahead of Jackson. He has been consistent so far and has a better matchup to some degree. I like the rest of your choices as is.

I think I would play Alexander over Dwyer @ flex. I just don't like the RB situation in PIT with 3 healthy/capable backs, regardless of who they claim is the starter. Hilton has been pretty good too, but I'd take a teams primary WR target of another teams secondary WR.

I would play any CAR RB. Danario should be your flex by far.

I would even start TY Hilton over him.Thinkíng about it I would even start Danario and TY over Jordy. But that is a big reach of course.

I appreciate all input thus far but i was hoping to a get a couple more opinions so I could form a consensus. I am now thinking Bryce Brown and Arian Foster at RB with Danario Alexander at Flex. My real delima is at WR. I am leaning towards T.Y Hilton but can't decide between V. Jackson, G. Jennings or J. Nelson as the other receiver. I am having a real hard time sitting any of these guys as they are usually studs.

Thanks.
