    I tried this last year. It didn't work. It just makes so much more sense to put all fantasy football related questions in one thread instead of making dozens of threads with the same topic.

    I really hope people can use this thread this time around.

    My biggest question this week is who to play at QB... Flacco (vs Rams) or Freeman (vs Falcons)?

    I think both QBs could have huge games. Falcons' defense sucks. Rams suck in general. Flacco just seems more inconsistent than any other QB, so I'm leaning towards Freeman.

    I'm also wondering who I should start at WR this week... Nicks (vs Eagles - Nnamdi!) or Sims-Walker (vs Ravens).

    I doubt either player will have a big game, but I just have a feeling Nicks will come away with no more than 2 catches for short gains. The fact that the Giants will be without Manningham doesn't make things any easier for Nicks.

    What do you guys think?

    i dont think the falcons defense stink... they just been playing high powered offenses lately.... even so, i think freeman might be a safer pick than flacco

    as for the WRs... i think it's a toss up.... Ravens will try to prove that they're not going to pushed around during the passing game.. and nicks isn't going to get a lot from the eagles as well...

    Thanks man. Much appreciated. Yea, it probably won't make much difference one way or another.

    Oh, one more question... Chicago D (vs Packers) or Washington D (vs Dallas). You never know how the Bears will do... same could probably be said about the Redskins, but they're going up against a banged up Romo who will have few weapons to throw to in this one. Austin is out. Bryant may play, but he's going to be at 70% at best. I think I'm leaning towards Washington as well, but again... not sure the choice will make much of a difference either way.

    Nope. I beg to differ... AP, Kenny Britt, Greg Jennings, Hakeem Nicks, Jermichael Finley, Ben Tate, and a few other decent guys.

    No conundrum, I'm just here to tell Antonio Gates to go suck a d$%# after putting up 0 points last week and not playing this week.

    I'm still torn with my four stud WRs

    Calvin (not sitting)

    -Stevie Johnson (I feel like I should sit him cuz the Pats will try and take away their one true weapon, but they have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to WRs)

    -Mike Wallace (has been getting a ton of targets, but for some reason the 'pros' don't like the match up against Indy).

    -Kenny Britt (obviously could have a big game..but he's had two big ones in a row..I could see a let down)

    I have a feeling Chicago's going to get killed again by the Packers... Rodgers is firing like no tomorrow... even if he does have a bad game... Washington is a safer choice.. Banged up Romo... rivalry game... are two pluses in starting them..

    I'd start Calvin and Britt obviously....i'd rather be safe than sorry on Britt (like week 1 ><) Johnson and Wallace are toughies... i think they'll both get at least a touchdown... the colts defense is built for the air... but like any team they give up TDs occasionally.... Johnson might be doubled for most of the game... belicheck isn't an idiot... i'd just flip a coin between the two if i were you :D


    and by no means i am not a fantasy "expert" i just love the whole system down to the math (engineer XD)
