I have been hit hard this year with injuries but have been able to consistently win all year using Waiver Wire picks. I am afraid that this may be th end of my run. I am in a 12 team non-PPR league. I am going against Tom Brady, Frank Gore and a fairly stacked team. I need every point I can squeeze out. My gut choices are in RED.
QB - RG3, Eli Manning, Sam Bradford
RB - Arian Foster, Bryce Brown, Jonathan Dywer, MJD (OUT), Marcel Reece (Pick 2)
WR - Vincent Jackson, T.Y. Hilton, Greg Jennings, Danario Alexander, Riley Cooper
TE- Jimmy Graham
FLEX- Pick one from WR/RB leaning towards Danario Alexander
DEF- Bears, Seahawks
Available on waiver wire - Montell Owens, Mike Goodson, Mike Tolbert, Bilal Powell ( I know not much there)
At QB, I find it hard not to play RG3. He has gotten me where I am, but I am concerned about his mobility. Eli has let me down the 2 times I played him and Sam Bradford has a decent matchup this week. Do I stick with RG3 or go with Bradford.
At RB, Foster is a no brainer. Bryce Brown was great for 2 weeks when I was in a bind but hasn't done much since and now McCoy is supposed to start. I don't trust him. Dwyer has been up and down, but I think he should get the majority of the carries but he goes against a tough Cinci defense. Reece probably won't get many carries behind RunDMC. What do you think about Tolbert against Oakland or Powell against the Chargers?
As for Flex, before last week I would have said no problem, Alexander. But he was shut out last week and will probably be covered by Cromartie this week. Riley Cooper has a good match up this week but can Foles get him the ball? I am having a hard time playing any of my RBs at RB (except Foster) let alone using them at Flex.
Defense- The Bears were great early this season but have been dealing with injuries, but they are playing the Cardinals. A great matchup for any good defense, as Seattle proved 2 weeks ago (Got me 41 points!) The Seahawks have a tougher matchup and may be missing a couple of key players.
I think I am set, but I just needed a bit of a sanity check. All advise/opinions is appreciated and I will definitely WHIR.
