Moreno will do a lot this week and I see bigger games for Cruz and Amendola this week. DMC could be limited if CAR gets up early which I suspect they will. Wayne may not get much if the Colts get up early as I suspect they might. Murray could be in a shootout of a passing game. I would considering benching DMC as I suspect he will have the worst game of the bunch. Wayne isn't far behind though.

It looks like this is PPR, so I think you have to go with Ammendola at flex with this matchup.

This is really tough but I think you have to sit DMC. He's been doing okay lately but his team is just not great, and you have to sit someone. Murray just has too good of a matchup. I don't play PPR so although I know DMC has been known to catch out of the backfield i'm not sure how much he helps you with that.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=532750

I'm a big fan of consistency, and especially at this time of the year. Therefore, I'd go with position that is going to get more touches... RB... across the board. That said, Amendola has a very nice matchup and like a previous poster said already, the Rams are still playing to get in the dance. He'd be the only one I'd consider seriously, PPR and all. Wayne has been bad as of late.

Thanks for helping me! ;-D

I'd bench DMC. CAR defense has played well recently, and the Raiders seem to have given up. If that seems too risky, I'd bench Cruz over the other wideouts if Bradshaw plays. Ravens defend the pass better than the run.

I think you sit McFadden and play Amendola. With it being PPR, this increases his value quite a bit. Carolina has been a really good defensive unit the last few weeks and the Raiders tend to fall on their face when they have to travel across the country and play in the early games.

help with mine?

wtr23 wrote:Bye bye Bryce Brown, won't be needing you this week. All 3 of my RBs have decent matchups this week, but that's making it tough to decide who starts and who sits this week. Both of my 'studs' at WR have decent matchups, but Amendola came off a great week last week and has an even better matchup. Need some help deciding who to start, leave a link and I'll help with yours ;-D

I have to bench one of the following:

RB- DMC(@CAR), Moreno(vs. CLE), Murray(vs. NO)
WR- Cruz(@BAL), Wayne(@KC), Amendola(@TB)


Do I start all 3 of the backs this week? Is Amendola worthy of a start? If he is, do I bench one of my regular starters at WR or do I stick him in at flex?

Considering it is PPR, I would start:
Moreno
Murray
Cruz
Wayne
Amendola

Thanks for the help with mine. ;-D

Currently I have DMC on the bench, but I'm one good argument away from starting DMC. Thanks for the help guys, keep it coming.
