I'd definitely go Blackmon. Best matchup and he's been the best lately.

Parmele's done for the year, so feel free to drop him. Amazingly I think I'd go Floyd here. Bengals and Bears both have very good pass Ds, but Wilson has thrown twice as many TDs at home this year, so that hurts Rice's value. Unfortunately you just can't start Fitz at this point. And Starks never does anything.

Newton was too good last week (and the Chiefs are too bad) for you to sit him.

WR -
Pick 2 -
Harvin @ GB (Possibly still INJ)
Jennings vs MIN (Playing this week)
D. Moore vs Cleveland
L. Moore @ ATL
D. Alexander vs CIN

Cecil Shorts is on waivers, and his TEN matchup makes it tempting, but I'm not sure who I'd swap out for him
I don't trust Harvin this week. And Moore's only caught 2 balls the past 2 weeks, and will have Haden on him. I personally don't like starting guys their first game after a long layoff, but it's tough to sit Jennings if he's healthy. Alexander's been good lately so I'd start him, and Shorts has been like a top 10 or so receiver over the past 6 weeks, so I'd definitely pick him up. If Moore's your worst guy, I'd drop him for Shorts. I'd go Shorts and Alexander.

RB - Pick 1
Alfred Morris @ NYG
Bryce Brown @ Dallas
Brown is going to be an absolute steal for people this year. My guess is McCoy's done, and what we saw Monday was awfully impressive. I'd go Brown as he has the better matchup and far more upside.

Two great options there. The Cards also give up an absolute ton to defenses, and the Jets have scored considerably more than Carolina this year, so I'd go with them.

I also have F. Jackson but sadly he's not an option at this point.
Too early to call this one. If McFadden plays, Reece is out, and if Forte plays, Bush is out. Assuming neither does, I'd go Reece and Bush. Assuming both do, I'd go Beanie and Jennings.

I know it's tough to sit Lynch, but as you can probably tell from my earlier commentary, I'm high on Brown. Lynch is certainly the safer play, but I'm a sucker for upside so I'd go Brown. One thing of note though, the Bears run D hadn't allowed 100 yards the first 7 weeks, and they've allowed over 100 in each of the last 4, so the matchup isn't as bad for Lynch as it might appear.

Also 1 of:

Rivers vs Cin
Flacco vs Pit
Kaepernick vs Stl
Definitely Kaepernick. Rivers has been terrible (and Cinci doesn't give up a whole lot of points to QBs), and the Steelers give up even less.

TE (pick one)
Rudolph @GB (sore shoulder, but should be okay)
Davis @STL (0 points last week after a 14 fantasy point game, left to blocking all game)
Bennett @ WAS (usually only puts up 3-4 points)
Tough to trust Vernon at this point (and I play against him this week so hopefully I'm right. Lol.). Bennett has really been very mediocre after his hot start. You figure Minnesota will be losing and passing, so I'd give Rudolph the nod (he seems to be back to being more involved now after that brutal 3 game stretch).

Morris vs NYG
Ridley @ MIA
This one's close as the run Ds are essentially identical, and their production has been pretty similar this year. Ridley's put up a couple of stinkers against good run Ds, and you always have to worry about Woodhead and Vereen, so I'd give Morris the slight edge.

SJax has had a bit of a resurgence of late, so even against that D I'd pencil him in. Felix is probably your best start, so I'd go with him as well. Moore takes a bit of a hit with Sproles back, and I'm always a fan of going RB when it's close, so I'd go Bush.

Car and NYJ are both great pickups this week, but I'd lean with the Jets. Tampa gives up nothing to defenses, so I'd definitely drop them for one of the two. Personally I'd go the Jets as they have great matchups the rest of the fantasy year.

So I'm going with Bryce Brown and I need one of Felix Jones (who has been awful, but receiving yards have salvaged his fantasy value) or Knowshon Moreno who I picked up after it looks like he's the top back in Denver now.

So...Jones or Moreno?
Felix could definitely produce this week, and him and Moreno are similar to me, but with Knowshon being on the better offense I'd give him the nod.

Also separate it time to go Scott Chandler ahead of Vernon Davis? Davis has been maddeningly frustrating...though Chandler is only useful if he gets a TD and the Bills Red Zone offense has been woefully pathetic lately.
Chandler's just too bad if he doesn't score, and has only had one decent week in the last 7. Gotta go Vernon.

Same league...McFadden, Moreno, or DeAngelo Williams? McFadden probably will play but how much is the question.
Exactly, too risky IMO, especially with these options. I actually like DWill this week, but it's a gamble. I'd go Moreno.

I like him. Should be a shootout, and Turner's been pretty bad. Floyd's been solid though. They're both projected for about the same, and both have scored about the same over the past 5 weeks (Floyd is averaging a point or two more). I think Floyd's the slightly better start, but when it's that close I'll often start the guy going Thursday just because I know I'll be watching the entire game, so it makes it more exciting. Perhaps not the best strategy, but...

This must be one deep league. Lol. Weeden's had some real clunkers, and at least with Locker you feel like there's some upside. I could see him ending up with a decent day (even if it's in garbage time).
