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

Thanks for your help with mine.

Moreno - He's a must start. Denver is still playing for home field advantage and he has 20+ carries the past 4 games while having 4 receptions in 3 games and 2 receptions in the other. No brainer here.

Murray - Must start - 1 TD in each of his 3 games back from injury and 4 receptions in each game. Dallas is going to move the football against the Saints and he'll get his goal line carry

DMC - He's your question mark RB but I would start him here. He has a very favorable matchup against CAR who has a very poor Rush D (Car has given up the 8th most points to RB's this year). Then you want to consider West coast team flying to the East coast. Its really like playing a game at 10am for Oakland and its harder to get on the same page in terms of passing compared to running. I'd expect a heavy dose of DMC, 20+ carries and he avgs 3 receptions a game.

Cruz - Must start, nuff said.

Wayne vs. Amendonla - I can't believe this but I think Wayne is the guy you're benching. His targets and receptions have noticably decreased over the past 3 weeks compared to what he was getting at the beginning of the season. Amendola came back from injury last week and hauled in 6 of his 12 targets + a TD. IMO Luck is progressing rapidly and as the year goes on he's getting more comfortable looking to his WR2/WR3/TE vs. chucking everything to Wayne whether he's open or not.

Plus, if you look at their opponents Amendola has the more favorable matchup. TB has given up the most points to opposing WR's this year while KC has given up the 16th most.

Its a tough decision to make, good luck!

Start all 3 RB's and sit Amendola. I think Wayne comes back strong after last week's dismal performance, same goes for Cruz.

I've recently picked up Justin Blackmon as well, does he have a shot at starting here or do I keep him on the bench? I know projections don't mean much but he has the highest projected points of all my WRs besides Cruz, but its close (17.4 - 17.33). Thoughts on Blackmon v. NE this week?

Sit DMC or Moreno. I'm personally biased against Moreno because he's a very below average back generally, so I'd say start DMC but a lot of people are also biased against him and would say the opposite. Just make sure you start all 3 of those WR's and Murray.

Thanks for the post.

In PPR leagues, I almost always go with RB over WR. In you case, I'd start all your RB's and sit Amendola. He gets a lot of looks but very short yardage unless he breaks one off for a TD.

I don't think Indy will have to pass like crazy against KC. Below average week out of Luck and Wayne. I'd play the 3 RBs, Cruz and Amendola.

As for Blackmon, he's a decent option this week, but I don't think he factors into your decision. I have a league where I'm deciding between two of Justin Blackmon vs. NE, Lance Moore @ Dal, Antonio Brown vs. Cin. I think that's more of the kind of decision where he'd factor in. Amendola and Wayne are a tier above those guys for this week.
