Wk 17 Who to start? WR, RB, DST WHIR

Postby BravesGuy » Fri Dec 28, 2012 2:30 pm

I made it to the Championship game. Best record in the league (regular season).

I think I have a good idea of who I am starting, but figured I would get some thoughts from the 'cafe.

I am leaning towards starting Hilton over Blackmon (and have done so that fast few weeks) because our league gives points for Return Yards and Return Touchdowns. Plus Weeks 13-16 they have very similar Receiving Yards/TDs. Blackmon is tempting though with Shorts out this week....
Ridley seems like a player that should be starting, but I don't think he should over my other 3 RBs.
Defense I am thinking about rolling with New England. They seem to put up monster fantasy numbers fairly often. Some interesting Free Agents though, PIT (vs CLE) is available [No Richardson?] and so is Buffalo (vs NYJ). I also have San Diego (vs OAK) on my bench.

So who should I start?
Hilton or Blackmon?
Start Ridley over DMartin, DeMarco, or Jamaal?
New England, Pittsburgh or San Diego on D/ST?

QB - Stafford vs CHI
WR - Colston vs CAR
WR - TY Hilton vs HOU
RB - DMartin @ ATL
RB - Jamaal Charles @ DEN
TE - JGraham vs CAR
W/R/T - DeMarco M @ WAS
K - Justin Tucker
DST - New England vs MIA

BENCH:
RB Steven Ridley vs MIA
TE Gresham vs BAL
RB Jackie Battle vs OAK
WR Justin Blackmon @ TEN
DST San Diego vs OAK

Passing Yards = yards per point; 5 points at 300 yards; 10 points at 400 yards
Passing Touchdowns = 4
Interceptions = -1
Rushing Yards = 10 yards per point; 2 points at 100 yards; 4 points at 200 yards; 8 points at 300 yards
Rushing Touchdowns = 6
Reception Yards = 10 yards per point; 2 points at 100 yards; 4 points at 150 yards; 8 points at 200 yards
Reception Touchdowns = 6
Return Yards = 15 yards per point
Return Touchdowns = 6

2-Point Conversions = 2
Fumbles Lost = -2
Offensive Fumble Return TD = 6

Leave a link and I will help you!
Good Luck if you are still in it!

I would start Ridley over Martin, and think you are correct with New England... although Miami shows signs of scoring whilst Oakland does not. You could consider starting San Diego. Squeelers at home vs. Browns too. Shoot, you have a crapshoot at D.

Glad I could help! :-S

Ridley, NE, stick with your gut on Hilton even though I personally prefer Blackmon.
