First Round of playoffs tomorrow and I have a couple of choices at TE and Flex (.5 PPR)
Finley vs. DET (in perhaps a very snowy game) or Gresham vs. Dal
Gresham has put together a nice season and is currently a top 10 TE, while Finley has disappointed with only 2 TDs in 12 games. However the matchups favor Finley a lot as the Cowboys rank 5th vs. TEs and DET ranks 28th. Plus Nelson is hurt which should increase looks to Finley. I expect the CIN DAL game to be a ground and pound game more than expected, and TDs should be at a premium, while GB vs DET looks like it could be a fun snowy shootout. I had Gresham locked in, but I am now leaning heavily towards Finley. Thoughts?
As for my Flex position, I had Ryan Mathews locked in as he was my second round pick, I didn't give it much thought, but then I looked and saw:
Mathews @ PIT and Ballard vs TEN. Another matchups play where PIT is the #5 DEF vs RBs and TEN is the #30 DEF vs RBs. In addition, Brown is out for the Colts, which means Ballard should see a heavy load of touches. Mathews has disappointed this season as he has only 1 TD all year and hasn't cracked 4 yards per carry in any of the past 4 games. I have made the switch to Ballard since I doubt Mathews breaks out of a funk @ PIT, but if you have any good insights, I would love to hear them.
Thanks! WHIR... (either in the next hour or so, or sunday morning as I will be gone for most of today) Just leave me a link.
