I will gladly take some advice here
Up front: I may be about to go crazy and strictly play matchups for the first week of my playoffs. 12-team PPR, 4-team playoff. Thankfully I don't have to play the guy who has Josh Gordon, Eric Decker, Shane Vereen, and Michael Floyd
Here's who I'm planning on starting at the moment. Look at my bench and tell me I'm not crazy.
QB - Peyton Manning vs SD
WR - Calvin Johnson vs BAL
WR - Riley Cooper @ MIN
RB - Gio Bernard @ PIT
TE - Dennis Pitta @ DET
W/T - Ace Sanders vs BUF
W/R - Montee Ball vs SD
K - Garrett Hartley @ STL
DEF - Kansas City @ OAK
BN - Tony Romo vs GB
BN - Andre Brown vs SEA
BN - Fred Jackson @ JAC
BN - Victor Cruz vs SEA
BN - J. Witten vs GB
BN - Miami D vs NE
Honestly, the only player I'm on the fence about is Witten, who is probably a good start vs Green Bay but he has just been so up and down. I have a great feeling about Pitta going forward.
Thoughts? Am I crazy? I know Sanders and Ball over Cruz and Brown looks insane, but ... look at the numbers for Week 14. I really don't want to start any Giant against Seattle.
Thanks for the input.

I would put Cruz in over Sanders. I know the temptation with Seattle but Cruz is 10,000x better than Sanders. Just think about it.

Unfortunately, my opponent had a couple of guys that exploded this week (Alex Smith, Dez Bryant, Seattle D) ... I've got Megatron and Pitta going tonight, but I'm down by like 55 in a PPR. I would need a 6/80/2 line from Pitta (doable but highly unlikely), and then Megatron would need to explode. Oh well, maybe next year.
