Championship week help - WHIR

Postby dgcesq » Tue Dec 18, 2012 9:20 pm

Somehow, I'm playing for the championship.

QB: Brady
RB Charles, Morris
RB/WR Ballard
WR Decker, Amendola
TE Grahahm
DST Broncos

This leaves Brandon Lloyd, Dez Bryant, and Kenny Britt on the bench. Can anyone spot an improvement I can make?

Thanks.

Might go Bryant over Amendola, depending on news about Bryant's finger injury. Saints passing D is lousy and as much as Amendola has a similarly lousing defensive opponent, he's been shaky since returning from injury.

Good luck!

Thanks guys,

I am thinking of starting Bryant over Vick Ballard. Ballard's got a good matchup, but he doesn't provide a lot of upside. Instead of starting 3RBs and 2WRs, I would play 2RBs and 3WRs.

FWIW, in ESPN standard scoring this year, the average WR3 has outscored the average RB3. Doesn't mean it's automatically better to start a third WR -- top RBs still outscore top WRs so there's more upside with RBs. But if you're convinced Ballard's upside is limited (and to be fair, I'm not, I think the Colts will roll on Kansas City this week), then there's a case to be made there.
