This is my team

Matt Ryan
Dez
Alshon
Reggie Bush
Demarco
Gronk
Cobb returner/wr
Gostkowski
Houston Texans Defense

bench
Romo
Demaryius
ryan williams
Torrey smith
Rashad jennings

I am considering starting Jennings or williams over Bush since texans are nasty against the run. I do not like that demaryius is going against the steelers defense, and like alshon but am concerned he will not get as many targets as demaryius. also have torrey smith?

thoughts and advice are very welcome, did the best copy and paste i could lol

Thanks:)!

Razorsharp79 09-04-2012 04:55 PM

Dang I must have a messed up team lol

Big Boss 09-05-2012 12:54 AM

I would start Tory Smith over Alshon

Razorsharp79 09-05-2012 01:33 AM

[QUOTE=Big Boss;3263373]I would start Tory Smith over Alshon[/QUOTE]

Thanks, alshon is sorta my sleeper pick lol...you think torrey gonna have a big year?

Razorsharp79 09-08-2012 11:26 PM

Thinking about dropping Randall Cobb and picking up Kendall Wright

If I do that who would you start this week out of these guys?

Demaryius, Alshon, Torrey, Kendall Wright?

Thomas going against a tough D in the Steelers
Alshon, not sure how much he will play, but he looked really good in preseason
Torrey either has a huge game or nothing, played well against Bengals last season
Kendall wright going up against a pats D that was next to last 2011

thoughts?

I think it's possible. This is my first year of fantasy football also so you might wanna take my advice with a grain of salt lol but if it were my team I'd go with Jennings over bush and torrey over alshon for now. I have mjd on one of my teams and i'm torn over whether to start him or not. We know jennings is starting but I'm just worried mjd will have a slow start (when he gets a chance)like cj2k did last year after his holdout. Also the phins are playing the texans who have a killer d. They gave up the 31st most fantasy points to rb's last year. Also I like Romo this year, just a gut feeling he's gonna have a good year. Best of luck to ya!

cassius423 09-08-2012 11:37 PM

Damn i didn't read your whole first post. I didn't see you have demaryius also. That's a tough call. Of course alot of his success is gonna depend on peyton but he's a good option to have. Tough call but if it were me I'd go with torrey this week.

Yeah I started Romo over Ryan week 1 and he put up 40 points so that worked out well.

I have Ryan Williams, but seattle has a good D, so I have to go with Jennings week 1 against the Vikes, he supposed to get the bulk of carries over MJD. And I have no faith in Reggie Bush against the Texans, but the dolphins may use him a good bit out of the backfield catching passes in the flat

DECISIONS lol

My main ? is do I drop Cobb, and pick up Kendall Wright? At least with cobb I do get some points for returns.

jbmets95 09-08-2012 11:50 PM

Definitley dont start alshon and start torrey smith
also start rashard or demarius instead of cobb

demarius lit up steelers in playoffs
cant sit him

yeah I am going to go with demaryius. I already used dez as my flex by accident.

Now i have one WR position to start

Alshon nah
Torrey leaning that way

or

drop cobb and put kendall wright in there for my 2nd WR

That's a tough one. Wright's looked good so far. I'm not sure how much having the return man helps points wise unless he's a main target also. I picked up antonio brown in one of my leagues. I might be wrong but i think it would depend on how much time cobb gets at receiver.

he is like packers 5th option on offense if he is even in there.

Yeah I thought it was something like that. I try to go with whoevers on the field the most. That's why I'm torn about mjd this week. I've got marshawn in my other league and I think he's gonna be a game time decision so I put Jennings in his spot. I'm already addicted to this shiz and haven't even had my first matchup yet haha.

Cades 09-10-2012 05:32 PM

I sure hope you ended up keeping Cobb with that scoring format

Jackg1980 09-10-2012 05:53 PM

With that scoring format, Cobb may be your best player. Have fun.

Razorsharp79 09-10-2012 09:48 PM

[QUOTE=Jackg1980;3292543]With that scoring format, Cobb may be your best player. Have fun.[/QUOTE]

Ha, he had 36 points in my league and was on the BENCH. I am still winning by 25. I also had romo over ryan and of course ryan got 48 points, romo still got 40 so cannot complain

Just dropped Rashad Jennings, picked up mccluster who is listed as RB/WR. ANd i picked up dwyer as well since he looked effective and dropped Ryan Williams who looked horrible and had -1 in my league

Does everyone think guys who are dual threats are the best bets with this format? I picked up mccluster thinking he could be a dual thread guy like him.

Demaryius Thomas had 25 points for me, but take that huge TD away he has mediocre output.

I also sat Alshon, and of course he put up 22 haha, never know

Razorsharp79 09-11-2012 03:32 PM

This week

Matt ryan home against Denver
Demaryius away vs falcons
dez @ seattle
reggie bush home against oakland
demarco @ seattle
Gronk home against arizona
Cobb home against bears
Gostkowski
Houston

bench
mccluster RB/WR (he's not returning kicks no more right?) had 16pts last week
Romo, two solid weeks in a row on the road at a tough place to play, doubt it lol
Alshon, surprised a lot of people, 22 points last week, believe he is nice redzone target, may swap him with dez?
Torrey, outside of one big catch he produced almost nothing
Dwyer

my starting lineup is projected to put up 178 points, and my main concerns are dez,
and bush..your thoughts? thinking about alshon and mccluster?
