Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

I'd go Daniel Thomas.. Jets are having trouble against the run and Henne is out. They should run the ball a whole lot.

As for TE, that's a toss up

Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

For TE I'd go Kellen Winslow. I'd probably go with Daniel Thomas too. Cowboys are playing in new England where the Pats haven't lost in 19 games. So more than likely they'll be playing from behind and abandon the run in the second half. The only thing is that Jones might get passes out of the backfield. Marshall has a good chance of playing against Revis. However, if he's ever matched up against Cromartie he might make a big play. It's a tough decision. One option could be if someone has given up on Burress and dropped him, this might be the week he goes off. Miami has given up 18 play of 20+ yards and 6 plays of 40+ yards.

Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

I was leaning towards Thomas as well, but Heath Miller at the TE spot. What's the argument for Winslow?

Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

My only knock against Miller is his inconsistent role in the offense. Jags have been bad defending TE's the last couple of years too, so that is a point in Miller's favor. Saints pass D is still not very good, and Winslow did catch 10 balls last year against NO. With the conservative way they run the offense for Freeman the first 3 quarters I think that sets up well for Winslow. However, Winslow is just as able to put up a dud performance as well. Like smak says, it is a toss up. Could go either way. Whoever has a higher chance to cach a TD is probably the better option. And that very well could be Miller.

Matthew Berry was all over my RB situation this week in love/hate:

Jets are actually 26th against the run, allow the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs and on the road, on "Monday Night Football," the Dolphins will try to take the crowd out of it by controlling the clock.

Felix Jones, RB, Cowboys: I might be a little too high on him at 12 and will probably lower him slightly when the Friday ranking updates come out, but the Patriots are in the bottom 10 of the NFL in yards-per-attempt and rushing touchdowns allowed. Teams often have to abandon the run against them because the Pats get up so big, but I think the Cowboys' offense can keep up with them enough to keep it interesting, which means a healthy dose of work for Felix as they try to limit the possessions for Brady and friends. Incidentally, I would totally watch a cartoon series called "Brady and friends." Especially if they had a van. And a talking dog. Note to young aspiring writers out there: You can never go wrong with a talking pet. America loves them. Loves them.
I totally disagree with him about the talking pet, but he kind of shifted my focus from Daniel Thomas to Felix Jones with this article. Am I crazy?

Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

Week 1 vs. MIA- C. Henne 7-59-1 TD rushing; R. Bush 11-38-0

Week 2 vs. SD- R. Mathews 12-64-1 TD

Week 3 vs. BUF- F. Jackson 12-74-1 TD

Week 4 vs. OAK- D. McFadden 14-75-0 TD

Week 5 vs. NYJ- S. Greene 21-83-1 TD

I guess that is 4 out of 5 weeks they have let a rushing touchdown. With Austin back and Bryant seeming healthy off the bye, I still think they'll punish the Pats through the air. But Jones could get 12 rushes for 60-70 yards and a TD.

Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

Not going with Marshall definitely cost me the win this week. Fantasy definitely takes on a whole new meaning when you get in a league with this much money on the line.

Yeah but you can't forsee a #1 WR doing well against the Jets and Revis.

Benjarvus Green-Ellis or Peyton Hillis? Green-Ellis against the Steelers makes me a little nervous but Hillis has been brutal this year.

Still go with Law Firm. Hardesty will still get a bunch of carries and San Fran's D is pretty good and they will be at home.

Re: Official Sit or Start Thread

I'm starting Driver in one of my leagues, but with any Packers WR it's sort of a crapshoot. Driver could have a huge game, or James Jones, or Cobb, or Nelson, or Finley...

It's a horse a piece. If you for sure need some points, I'd go Jackson. If you're feeling like you need a homerun, go with Driver.
