**Playoff Lineup**WHIR 100%**

Postby wtr23 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 7:56 pm

I'm having trouble setting my starting roster this week. I need 2 RBs. Options (current starters in red):


The Running Backs
Murray- Pittsburgh can stop the run and he had an average game last week if he didnt find the endzone.
DMC- Looks healthy and KC is in the bottom half of run defenses
Know More- Baltimore is allowing a lot more on the ground than they used to, ranking lower than KC at stopping the run.
Bryce Brown- McCoy ruled out again, but disappointing last week to say the least (yea the matchup wasn't great but still :-P ).**started at flex, yikes!


scoring: 1 pt per 10 rush/rec yds, 7 pts for TDs, 1 PPR.

Who do you start and why? Leave a link, WHIR as always ;-D

DMC...cant go wrong against KC
Moreno...peyton takes the pressure off too

and id go brown
last week was a bad matchup and i think he will bounce back..he knows hes got to do well to make any kind of case for himself since hes behind mccoy

i dont like your WRs in the flex and i think murray blows

good luck

help with mine?

I agree with the above post. I don't like Murray due to the brutal matchup against a very strong Steelers run D. The WRs you have aren't terrible, but I typically like to use RBs for Flex as they are usually more involved and therefore have a better chance of putting up points. Good luck.

your WR's are no goes for me. So its out of your RB's and I think you have the correct guys in there. Brown diced up two fairly bad run defenses, and then struggled mightily against a good run defense. Cincy is a pretty solid run defense, so I could see Brown struggling again this week. I dislike playing guys on Thursday as if you get it wrong it limits you so much, and its very difficult when you have no idea of practice reports from other teams..

If one had to go, I'd say Murray reluctantly. I think he'll get his 15-20 carries and if they get it close he's going to get his opportunities. I like him better if Dez sits like he should.. Jerry putting pressure on him to play is ridiculous, but thats another story all together.

I think Bryce will bounce back. For the others, go with DMC and knowshon.

Any other opinions? I have Brown in and Murray on the bench, is this the right lineup?

I concur with the majority here, start DMC/Moreno/Brown.
I always prefer rbs in the flex if I got em. Phi will not want to get in a shoot out and will try to own the possesion clock advantage by running the ball.

Well I left Brown in at flex, only got 5 points :-o Now I need to decide which RB to bench...I'm thinking Murray sits, his matchup looks the worst of my 3 remaining backs.
