Help with few issues for week 1 of the playoffs

Postby maximf » Thu Dec 06, 2012 1:00 pm

So my team in a 12 team 0.5 ppr league look like that:

QB: Andrew Luck
RB: Arian Foster, CJ Spiller, DeAngelo Williams
WR: Hakeem Nicks, Reggie Wayne, Jeremy Maclin, Donnie Avery, Antonio Brown
TE: Brandon Myers, Kyle Rudolph
DST: Texans
K: Matt Prater

In this league we start 2 RB's, 2 WR's and one flex (RB/WR)

My first question is what should I do about the flex? I have the choice Between Maclin, Avery, Brown and Williams, which option is the best for this week? (I could also pick up Montell Owens or Bilal Powell)

in TE I decided to start Brandon Myers, should I drop Kyle Rudolph or keep him for Myers tougher matchups in the playoffs

and Lastly, the Texans defense is scaring me this week and really for every week till the end (Patriots, Colts,Vikings) should I drop them and pick up the jets defense? (JAX, TEN, SD) or maybe just add the jets defense and drop one of the other players? Some of the other dst's available is Chargers, Bills, Packers, Colts, Vikings

Thank you in advance!

QB: Andrew Luck
RB: Arian Foster, CJ Spiller
WR: Hakeem Nicks, Reggie Wayne,
TE: Brandon Myers, Kyle Rudolph
DST: Texans
K: Matt Prater

If Nicks doesn't play, then use antonio brown
I'd drop Maclin for Jets defense and maybe williams for bilal powell
if you play myers tonight, put rudolph in your flex

I wish I could play Rudolph in flex, but the flex is only WR or RB, i'm gonna change it next year, but that doesn't help me this time.....

do you think maclin can be trusted? after all nick folls is the qb......

I don't trust Maclin, but if he's ever going to go off this should be that week. Still, I'd rather keep Avery because it looks like Luck is making a point to get him the ball, plus I think the Colts will throw more than the Eagles moving forward. Looking at their respective schedules, I can see the argument for dropping the Texans for the Jets.
