Help me set my playoff lineup WHIR

Postby SmokyMcNasty » Thu Dec 13, 2012 12:21 pm

I've made the playoffs in both leagues I'm in, and I need your help to make it the championship game next week! WHIR just leave a link...

League 1
Standard scoring.

- Start 2 RB, 2 WR, and 1 flex. I have 6 good options at RB and WR. Who gets benched?

Adrian Peterson vs Rams
Trent Richardson vs Redskins
Alfred Morris vs Browns
Brandon Marshall vs Packers
Vincent Jackson vs Saints
Julio Jones vs Giants

Obviously not benching AP. I don't wanna bench any of my backs actually. Right now I have Julio Jones out..

- Which defense?

Dolphins D vs Jaguars
Jets D vs Titans

League 2
Standard scoring

- Start 2 RB.

Ray Rice vs Broncos
Alfred Morris vs Browns
Stevan Ridley vs 49ers

Right now I have Ridley benched because of matchup against 49ers. Any arguments to bench Morris instead? RG3 possibly not playing might hurt Morris?

- Which quarterback?

Josh Freeman vs Saints
Philip Rivers vs Panthers
Carson Palmer vs Chiefs

League one: Yeah its a tough one but i think Julio is the guy you want to sit especially if you are comfortable rolling with all your RBs. Marshall might be in tough but i don't see how you bench that guy.

Def i would go with would probably be miami

League two: Rice and Morris
QB: Freeman for sure, hes due a big week again and the saints D is the team to do that against.

I would think about starting Julio over Marshall, Giants secondary sucks, and I have a feeling Cutler will have a tough time throwing the ball with Mathews back. Defenses are both good options, almost a coin flip...but I would take Miami at home in an interstate battle.

Bench Ridley, he might score a goal line TD but I don't see him putting up huge numbers against SF...Woodhead might put up better numbers. I think Morris is a safer play, as Cousins seems like he can handle himself. QB go with Freeman for sure.

Check mine out?
QB- Luck, Palmer
WR- Dez, Bowe, Boldin, E. Sanders,
RB- Shady, R. Bush, D. Williams, G. Bernard, B.Brown, K. Hunter, B. Pierce, I. Pead
TE- Cameron
K- Akers
Def- Flavor of the week
