Lineup Help WHIR

Postby oakstreetboy » Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:01 am

So I have RG3, and am moving onto the 2nd round of the playoffs. I also have Romo and Dalton on my roster. So it sounds like RG3 has a good shot to play, although other reports say they don't think he will. I like Dalton's matchup against Philly more than Romos matchup against Pittsburgh. Problem is, Dalton plays tonight.

So should I just start Dalton tonight and assume either RG3 won't play or even if he does play, won't play that well. Or should I bench Dalton, and wait until later this week to make my decision.

If RG3 doesn't start, I could start Romo, or someone off the wire:
Carson Palmer v KC - good matchup, but coaches keep saying they want to get a look at Terelle Pryor
Russel Wilson @ BUF - he's played well on the road lately, putting up big points against the Bears and Dolphins

We are pretty standard scoring for QBs, 4 pts for passing TDs, 6 pts for rushing TDs, 1 pts for every 25 yards passing. We do NOT have negative points, so INTs and fumbles don't hurt.

Please leave a link and I will help in return. Thank you!

That is tough, hard to think youd have RG3 on your bench if he does play.
I like Dalton's matchup but yea, its tonite.
I like Russel Wilson too for this week, personally better than Romo if you go that route
I think I'd wait on RG3, pickup Wilson in case hes not

I'm in a similar boat. But even if RG3 plays he will be limited. Even though that Wilson matchup is nice, I would roll with Dalton tonight. I think it'll be a nice high scoring game.

Eagles secondary is suspect at best. It's definitely a bet, but it's safer than Dalton would be in many cases. His penchant for throwing picks will likely be less of a problem against a def that doesn't get turnovers.
