C.Shorts or D. Alexander week 14? WHIR

Postby marioman123 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 7:39 pm

In a 0.5ppr league, first round of playoffs and cant afford a dud from my flex position. Shorts is home against the Jets but is dealing with a concussion. Alexander is @ PIT, however PIT is without Ike Taylor this week. Also, do you guys like Lewis against NYJ, Rudolph against CHI, or Myers against DEN for my TE? Thanks a bunch, and as always leave your link.

T.Y. Hilton is also available for pickup on waivers. Do you do that instead and start him over Shorts and Alexander? I hate these decisions...

Myers at tight end. I think I'd go Alexander, but if Shorts is cleared I'd go with him.

Shorts might not even play with his concussion issue. Alexander has been solid, and Pitt's secondary is not full of Darelle Revis'. As far as TE goes, did you see the week that Myers just put up? No question I'd go with him. Palmer can't seem to get the ball to his WR's anymore, so the closer you are to him the better. Go with Myers and Alexander.

How does T.Y. Hilton rank compared to Shorts and Alexander this week? Matchup wise he looks more favorable than those two.

Myers at your TE, he's been playing at an elite level over the past nine weeks or so, more points then Graham... Out of the WR's, I like Hilton over the other two, Shorts may not play, and Alexander's match up isnt too hot.

help with mine?

Do not start Shorts. He is not even listed in the top 60 WRs for this week. I ran with him last week as I had a hunch that Nelson would under perform. I wasn't expecting the same to be with Decker.

I had Hilton and Alexander on the bench. Both are legit starts but if you can grab Gordon or Garcon, I'd start one of them first and then Alexander.
