Week 15 Roster HELP PLS! WHIR!!

Postby GTOon19Z » Thu Dec 13, 2012 8:41 am

Hey guys,

I'm in a 12-team PPR, need some help...BAD.

Hardest decision I have had to make all season long. I have a question at almost every position:

QB? --
WR? --
WR? --
RB? --
RB? --
TE? --
W/R/T(flex)? --
D/ST? --

Here are my options:

QB (need 1):
PEYTON MANNING VS BAL
JOSH FREEMAN VS NO

WR (need 2):
ERIC DECKER VS BAL (starting)
BRANDON MARSHALL VS GB (starting)
LARRY FITZGERALD VS DET
DANARIO ALEXANDER VS CAR (possible flex?)

RB (need 2):
DARREN MCFADDEN VS KC
MATT FORTE VS GB (starting)
MIKEL LESHOURE VS ARI
JOIQUE BELL VS ARI

TE (need 1):
ANTONIO GATES VS CAR
CLAY HARBOR VS CIN (leaning towards him...no Celek today)

D/ST (need 1):
DETROIT VS ARI
CINCINNATI VS PHI (free agent)

I need to fill in my roster. Help! As always, WHIR.

Thanks guys!

Manning is money, but I kind of like Freemans matchup this week. I also like Mcfadden against KC, Harper against Cinn and definitely Detroit against the pathetic cardinals.

Take Clay as TE, especially without Celek......you cant keep starting Gates based on who he used to be.

As a Baltimore fan, I am incredibly scared of what Peyton is going to do to us this week. I'd go with Manning, but if you chose Freeman you would probably get plenty of points there as well.

Decker and Marshall definitely for WR's. I feel bad for Fitz. His absolute ceiling this year on any given week is about 12 points given his quarterbacks.

Definitely McFadden vs. KC and should catch some passes as well. I like Forte in PPR.

Leshoure/Alexander/Fitz for your flex. Have to sit Fitz which is sad and Alexander has been hot. But if Detroit gets a lead on Arizona, Leshoure/Bell may get involved more. I think I go with Alexander for a higher ceiling/higher floor pick. He shouldn't totally screw you even if he doesn't blow up.

I think I go with Gates for your TE. Harbor is a total wild card. The TE in that offense gets looks but he is a backup with Foles at QB and a better than average Cincy defense. He could blow up but also could be totally overwhelmed. This decision is totally based on how much risk you want to take.

D/ST definitely Detroit. Arizona is terrible and Philly may actually play with Cincy a bit tonight.

I always say when in doubt, start the better player and igonre the matchup. Better players are "better" for a reason.

QB - Peyton Manning
RB - McFadden & Forte
WR - Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker
TE - Gates
DST - Bengals (I'm not buying into the Detroit hype. They've sucked all year and will continue to suck against a poor offense)

Thanks for the help on mine.

Here's my take:

I don't think Denver is going to build a big lead and then run it, so I'd go with Peyton at QB.
At WR I don't like what Decker or Fitz have done lately. I'd start Marshall and Alexander, who are both red hot.
At RB I'd go McFadden and Forte. DMC should have a huge day if he stays healthy. I'd then throw Bell in my flex as he'll likely see close to same number of carries as Leshoure, but should see quite a few targets in the passing game as well with most of the Lions good receivers being injured.
I'd also play Harbor over Gates at TE. What has Gates done recently? You're probably not going get many points either way.
I think I like the Bengals DST better than the Lions this week, also.

Good luck!

Lovin the feedback guys! Benching Decker scares me though, but Danario has been nice as of late...

Any others?

I'm a Decker owner, as well. I have Marshall and Alexander, and I haven't had Decker active in the last 3 weeks. He's going to ride my bench, which is why I recommend that he rides yours, as well. I don't think you can sit Alexander (averaging over 15 ppg over the last 5 in standard leagues with 30 receptions) and play Decker (averaging less than 5 ppg over the last 5 in standard leagues with 18 receptions).

who would I play at Flex then, if not Decker?

LeShoure - TD
Bell - Possible TD, Rec (PPR)

QB -- Freeman
WR -- Marshall
WR -- Decker
RB -- Forte
RB -- McFadden
TE -- Gates
W/R/T(flex) -- Alexander
D/ST -- Detroit

Peyton is great, but Freeman has a dream matchup. He's going to put a lot of points up

Harbor is way too risky for my liking.

I was about to choose Fitzgerald for FLEX but Alexander has been getting way too many targets and yards lately to bench him.

You see what the Seahawks did to Arizona last week? The Lions won't come close to 41 points, but they'll put up a good amount.

Help with mine?
