Few PLAYOFF (SEMI-FINAL) lineup questions ***WHIR***

Postby goodwidp » Tue Dec 11, 2012 2:29 pm

So, I somehow managed to make it to the 2nd round of the playoffs after winning via tiebreaker in the first round (final score was 72-72).

I have a few lineup issues that I'd love some advice on. This is a Yahoo standard scoring league (no-PPR).

RB: (Pick 2 only)
Spiller (vs SEA), McFadden (vs KC), Bryce Brown (vs CIN), LeShoure (@ARI), D. Murray (vs PIT)
Leaning towards Spiller and DMC for now.

WR: (pick 3)
Megatron (@ARI), R. Wayne (@HOU), Decker (@BAL), M. Williams (@NO)
My normal starting WRs are Wayne, Johnson, and Decker. However, I'm wondering if maybe Williams might be a better play than Decker this week due to the matchup vs a poor Saints pass D. Plus I have Freeman as my QB if that makes any difference.

TE: (pick 1)
Tamme (@BAL), D. Keller (@TEN), C. Harbor (vs CIN), T. Scheffler (@ARI)
I currently have Tamme on my roster and the others are available via WW. I think I like Scheffler the most, but that's only if Pettigrew is out (which doesn't look very likely atm). After that, I may be leaning towards Harbor as he will be filling in for Celek who is already ruled out.

As always, any help is sincerely appreciated. Please leave link for WHIR. Thanks!

You have some interesting options but I'd roll with:

DMC and Spiller

Megatron and Wayne for sure... the next two are a toss up for me. Usually I'd go with Decker but NO sucks at defending the pass and you'd have to love getting the potential double points from Williams and Freeman.

Just roll with Tamme since none of the options are very good. As soon as you drop him, that's when he gets into the endzone.

Good luck!! ;-D

Spiller and Brown. I have McFadden and benching him for Danario Alexander. McFadden sucks and can't stay healthy.

Wayne/Megatron/M Williams

And roll with Harbor.

spiller is in full control with jackson out, let him loose!
brown will bounce back, and dmc cant stay healthy enough for me to trust

megatron, wayne and williams
decker has been quiet lately and williams has a better matchup (even thought he didnt do much against them earlier this year)

id have to go scheffler with all those WRs out of commission he has to see targets
i havent followed him much but if keller is doing decent this season, titans have always sucked against TEs so may be worth a look


please help with mine:

for RB I like Spiller and DMC- fjax is out so spiller will carry the majority of the load, and I like the KC matchup for DMC

at WR megatron and wayne are the obvious starters, and I'd go with Mike Williams, taking the risk for double points.

for your TE It's a toss up btwn Tamme and Scheffler. Tamme has the better QB but with limited options at WR in Detroit I imagine Scheffler will continue to get looks.

I'd go:

RB - Spiller, DMC (he's injury prone, but should be good for at least 80 and a score against KC)
WR - Megatron, Wayne, M. Williams - has too good of a matchup
TE - Harbor - Young QBs like to lean on their TE


Good Luck!

Lineup advice for me?

What is the tiebreaker in Yahoo leagues? The web help is rather confusing.
