Please help me with lineup!

Postby bassackwards » Fri Dec 14, 2012 11:33 pm

OK...its do or die time and am looking for opinions on my roster from all you Fantasy All Stars...need to fill 2 WR positions and one flex out of these players:

Dez Bryant vs. PIT (will he play...if so how well with finger?)
Torrey Smith vs. DEN
Pierre Garcon @ CLE (RGIII out?....would this hurt?)
Larry Fitzgerald vs. DET (I will probably get burned again w/ QB situation!)
Stevan Ridley vs. SF (solid play but tough DEF)

Speaking of looking at things for a while... I can't come up with a comfortable answer for you. Instead, all I can do is some up with reasons you shouldn't play any of these guys, sadly.

Garcon is on fire but might cool-off against Joe Haden and possible RGIII issues

Ridley vs. Niners is the unstoppable force vs. the immovable object. Anybody's guess who wins.

Speaking of guessing, anybody who tells you they know how much Dez will play, let alone how well, is pontificating completely.

Torrey Smith is a great receiver, but with a new offensive coordinator and next to nothing from him last week against a very weak WAS secondary makes you say "hm....?"

I agree: the QB disaster is awful, and there is nothing that suggests Larry has a breakout game this week.

I'm sorry to say, but you have some rough choices here. Gun to my head, I go

WR1 Smith
WR2 Garcon
Flex Ridley

Good luck!

I'm going to say the same, except I think Ridley and Garcon are absolutely definite choices. That leaves Fitz and Smith for the second WR. No free agents left? :-b Probably Smith, as the Cards are just a disaster.

Thanks for your help btw. I actually have a new question too:

Thanks for helping in my thread.

Start Ridley and Garcon. I think Champ Bailey will cover Torrey Smith, so go with Dez if he plays.

Sorry, for some reason forgot you had Bryant on there. He goes if fit, then Smith for me.

Thanks for mine. I think you've got a tough call (obviously, or you wouldn't be asking) - here's what I got:

The SF defense is very, very, good. But I'm willing to bet they sacrifice a little run stop to make sure Brady doesn't roast them through the air. Ridley should be alright, and he'll get goal line looks.

I like Garcon, but I don't like him as much if Cousins starts at QB. Still, he's the biggest upside guy on your list. Or, the biggest healthy upside guy. I think if Dez plays, you have to take the chance and start him. No Ike Taylor, less than healthy corners, and the Cowboys' whole season is on this game. He may not catch 10 passes, but with him, all it takes is one. I can't say I feel really good about Torrey Smith or Fitz. God, the world sucks. We're all sitting Larry Effing Fitzgerald in a playoff game.

So....Garcon and Dez at WR, Ridley at your flex. Good luck!
