    Personally I would go with go with Eli... Panthers secondary is awful. Eagles ain't much better, but Smith will be forced to keep up with Vick.

    I like the Eagles to win tonight. I hate that Reid is going to get a standing boovation though.

    Don't worry I went with my gut and started eli. He should be able to do better than 14 points

    Well, after the "Luck over Vick" debacle from last week I finally started Vick this week.... and he had 3 turnovers and by far his worst fantasy performance of the season.
    :whack:


    This is why I typically try to grab a truly elite QB early in the draft. I hate having to choose between two above-average guys who are up one week and down the next. Feels like you're always chasing last week's numbers. It's nice to just have a Rodgers or Manning that you can start with confidence each and every week.

    I targeted Matt Ryan in the 5th throughout all my leagues. If he wasn't there I went with Kaepernick. If Kaep wasn't there I waited at least a round and went with either Stafford or Wilson.

    But Matt Ryan in the 5th is pretty much the best value you can find for a QB. People also called me retarded for favoring Ryan over Brady this year... yea, how's that looking now?

    Okay, I have a tough one here. I'm 0-2 in this league and really need a win. I need to start two of the following:

    - Demarco Murray
    - Joique Bell
    - Julian Edelman

    For the sake of this discussion, let's assume Reggie Bush is out. And this is a PPR league. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm thinking Murray might be the odd man out here(?). He was downright awful last week.

    edelman is getting his touches, brady will get him the ball. Tampa plays zone so that matchup works. I would go with murray as well. Bell is odd man out

    What do you think about starting Trent Richardson? He JUST joined the team. Do you think I should give it a week or so, considering that he's splitting carries with Bradshaw?

    i'm faced with that decision. I can go with either Ryan Mathews (I can't recall who he's up against :) ), or T-Rich as my flex ... I decided to go with Richardson. I figure the Colts will want him to do something after making such a splashy trade (maybe throw him the goal line carries). And... I don't want to be have any rooting interest in Ryan one T this weekend.

    FWIW I'd go with Murray and Bell (I didn't check Murray's match-up, but I know Edelman is up against the Buc's D which has been decent)

    Ahhh... reread your post (for the first time apparently lol) PPR... I'd go with Bell and Edelman (unless Murray has a sweet match-up).
