Lots of Questions

Postby Slim Pickings » Sat Dec 22, 2012 10:17 am

This is for the Super Bowl & I Never won any leaues before & not to mention it's rematch of last years Super Bowl against my rival who I can't stand. Smile Smile

So everybody's help is greatly appreciated.

Who should I start this week?

Colin Kaepernick vs SEA

or

Eli Manning vs BAL


Also should I start Jamaal Charles vs Indy?

Last week against Oakland he did nothing, are we going to get the same?

Other options,

Reggie Bush vs BUF
Danario Alexander vs NYJ
Chris Givens vs TB
Brandon Gibson vs TB

Oh & wat about my defenses?


Houston vs MIN

or

San Francisco vs SEA



thanks in advance

Okay, let's start with the easy part: defenses.
Don't start SF this week; the Seahawks are very good, and even better at home. SF will stifle Marshawn Lynch, but they won't shut him down completely. Same goes for Russell Wilson: the kid's just too good.
Definitely go with HOU against Minnesota. JJ Watt: difference-maker in so many ways. Minnesota's offense is all Adrian Peterson. Houston will get to Ponder for a handful of sacks, and Peterson will have a decent day but not enough to bench the HOU defense.

RB
I wouldn't bench Jamaal against the league's 23rd-ranked run defense. Charles only had 9 or 10 carries last week because the Chiefs only had the ball for all of 3 minutes. Seriously, did the Chiefs EVER have the ball last week? I think Charles will be just fine.
That being said, I see you have Reggie Bush there as an option. Between the two I would start Reggie Bush. Defying all conventional wisdom, he has once again turned it up and earned lone-back duty in Miami. Not only that, but the Bills are asleep at the wheel on defense. I wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow was Bush's biggest fantasy week of the year.

QB
This is absolutely your toughest choice. You've got two QB's who both have something to prove. Kaepernick time and again has shown he's a great QB this season, but every week it seems "experts" project him to fall apart at the seems. Then there's Eli: fighting for his postseason life. I honestly think you would do fine starting either one, but if it were me I would have to go with Manning. This time of year is routinely when he plays his best football. Hopefully last week's terrible performance will just add fuel to his fire.

Manning
Bush
HOU

Good luck beating your nemesis!

I should also mention the rest of my lineup.

QB-Colin Kaepernick (SF) vs SEA
RB-Jamaal Charles (KC) vs IND
RB-Marsawn Lynch (SEA) vs SF
RB/WR-CJ Spiller (BUF) vs MIA
WR-Andre Johnson (HOU) vs MIN
WR-Dez Bryant (DAL) vs NO
TE-Kyle Rudolph (MIN) vs HOU
D/ST-Houston vs MIN
K-Blaire Walsh (MIN) vs HOU

QB-Eli Manning (NYG) vs BAL
QB-Joe Flacco (BAL) vs NYG
RB-Reggie Bush (MIA) vs BUF
WR-Danario ALexander (SD) vs NYJ
WR-Brandon Gibson (STL) vs TB
WR-Chris Givens (STL) vs TB


I'm leaning toward Kaepernick, I just don't truth Eli.

And Kaepernick is always a threat to get a couple rushing TD's too.

CB Sherman is in; Kaep has big upside but that fact hurts a bit. I wouldn't fault you for starting Kaep over Eli anyways.
Literally the only part of your lineup I don't like is Kyle Rudolph. What other TE's are available? Other than that you're looking good

Yah, leave Clark on the bench.
You never know - Rudolph could get Red Zone targets. Other than that I'd say yer looking good. Hope you win.
