In the championship, Who to Start?

Postby Magicflurry » Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:57 pm

2 week championship match, non-ppr

I am on the edge of sitting Ray Rice for DeMarco Murray, can't decide -.-
It's tough to sit my healthy top pick in the championship but I think Baltimore clinched a berth so Rice could be well rested during the game?

Gonna drop Lion's D for Colt's D to start as well.

Hoping Colin Kaepernick will be a free agent next week in case Peyton sits for whatever reason.

A couple of suggestions. First is Sam Bradford available on the wire? If so I actually like him better than Peyton this week. 3 reasons why:

One is the Broncos have been running the ball a lot more as of late and as such Manning's fantays numbers have dropped.
Two the Browns actually defend the pass for the most part pretty well
Three Bradford goes against the Bucs who are the worst when it comes to giving up fantasy points to QB's.

Are the Chargers an available DEF? Colts even? The Jets are a turnover machine and SD will have a field day with the Jets next week.

I think you stay with Rice this week. Ravens have a playoff spot, but they need to win to clinch their divison and have a home playoff game. So they still have stuff to play for.

I also don't like Thomas this week since he is going against Joe Haden who is one of the better defenders in the league. I would swap Thomas for Wayne.
