Help with week 5 lineup

Postby gibby005 » Wed Oct 02, 2013 12:57 pm

Here's who I have starting as of now:
QB Matthew Stafford
RB Jamaal Charles
RB Frank Gore
WR Calvin Johnson
WR Victor Cruz
TE Jason Witten
FLEX Wes Welker
D/ST Broncos
K Garrett Hartley,

QB Andrew Luck
QB Robert Griffin III (BYE)
RB Chris Johnson
RB Darren McFadden
WR Jordy Nelson
K Phil Dawson
D/ST Ravens

This is an 8 man league and I have yet to win a game. I have third most points for, but the highest points I'd really like to win this week. I'm basically looking for advice regarding:
Andrew Luck vs Stafford
Chris Johnson vs Frank Gore vs Darren McFadden
Wes Welker vs Jordy Nelson vs Using a running back at flex
Denver vs Baltimore D/ST

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Stafford in the shootout
Gore because superior O-Line and last week was amazing.

Only two tough choices:
Welker in the other shootout or Chris Johnson.
Welker is matchup proof he'll get his 10 points, its if he gets the TD's or not, which he is getting with ease.
I'd go him for the safe pick as your talking about 5 TD's one has to go to welker.

Chris Johnson will probably get a lot carries, what he does with them is the risky part. KC has a strong defense. It's a gut call for him.

Denver vs Baltimore D/ST

Baltimore is #5 on the analyzer they go against Miami who just gave 13 points to NO defense.
Denver is going against Dallas and dallas is only giving 4,8,2,6 pts each week to opposing defenses.
Another gut call for me.

Both are road games, but I like the return game of Denver better so I'd go there. Flacco did stink it up though. And Romo has that gun slinger mentality.

Tough luck, man. You have a good looking team.

The only move I'd consider is swapping out Welker for Jordy. It depends on whether your league is PPR. If so, stick with Wes; if not, go Jordy. Just my 2 cents--you can't really go wrong either way.
