Start/Sit week #5

With AJ going down with a hamstring injury, I'm stuck with either Dexter McCluster (RB/WR) or Robert Meachem as my subs.

McCluster @ Colts
or
Meachem @ Panthers

I'm leaning towards Meachem but with the return of Colston plus Graham has been Brees's go-to-guy the past couple of weeks (wich I have ), I'm still on the fence.

I need to start 3 WR's, 1 flex, 1 TE

Megatron vs Bears(no brainer lol)
Nate Washington vs Steelers
Antonio Brown vs Titans
Mario Manningham vs Seahawks
Santana Moss - Bye
Jimmy Graham - Panthers(no brainer)
Brandon Pettigrew - Bears

I'm leaning towards playing both tight ends and benching Manningham for Brown this week. I really need an upgrade at WR.

Antonio Brown (vs. TEN) or David Nelson (vs. PHI)...or should I pick up a guy like Devery Henderson (vs. CAR) or Denarius Moore (vs. HOU)

I'd go with Manningham just cause the Seahawks are god awful. I think the Steelers are going to go back to their bread and butter and that's running the football. With the hard loss they had last week, Redman will get a boat load of carries since Mendenhall will get limited touches cause of a hamstring injury.

If you take into consideration that the Bills/Packers game will probably ressemble the Bills/Pats game since both clubs are all about offense, I'd take Nelson, hands down.

Henderson is a "ok" option but with the return of Colston and Graham getting all kinds of looks, he's a bit risky if you ask me. Moore is another solid option, better then Henderson IMO, but I'd still go with Nelson.

Even though my expectations have tapered, I'm still too high on McCluster. That being said, I'd start him over Meachem.

I think I'd go Washington and Brown. I know they're saying Manningham hasn't lost his job, but I'm not so sure. I think you have more upside with Brown/Washington than you do Pettigrew.

All of these guys would be ranked right around each other to me, so it's a tough call. Henderson's just too inconsistent for my taste (zero catches last week), so he's out. I'd say the same for Moore. I know Nelson's gotten a lot of targets, but I have a feeling his two good weeks were more an exception than the norm. I'd go Brown.

I'm not going to play Schaub this week, no Andre and I expect Hou to run the ball a ton against a bad Raiders front 7.

So I am stuck choosing between Kyle Orton @SD or Jay Cutler @Det

Ugly I know.

Cutler.

The Bears won't run it that often against a solid d-line. I can see Martz calling alot of screens and that's a good thing for Cutler.

Go with Cutler. You can pass on DET.

With that said, Schaub is not a bad option at home against the Raiders, IMO. You can pass the ball on them and the Texans still have some passing weapons left.

I don't think Nelson's quite as good as the two weeks he got everyone talking, nor quite as bad as his numbers last week. I think I'd go with him. Moore's gonna be ranked higher on most boards this week though.

Grant's in a timeshare, and Kuhn and Rodgers vulture TDs, and Green Bay's like the Pats in that they'll keep passing even if they're up 30, so Grant's out. As crazy as it sounds, I'd actually go McGahee this week. SF has a good run D, and Blount doesn't catch balls, whereas even if (when) the Broncos are losing at least McGahee can still get points for you.

Sidney Rice or Mario Manningham?

Rice seems like the obvious choice but for some reason I'm second guessing.

Maybe its because in my other league I have Manningham in I'm forced to start him with Bryant on BYE.

Rice is the safe bet. Manningham's is falling out of favour in New York and the Seahawks will likely trail and be forced to pass. Rice should be good for 80 yards and a touchdown if you're lucky.

Starks. Grant might not play again.
And I think Bush is a GTD.

I'm benching Schaub for Freeman.

I think the Texans will run and run often against the Raiders, limiting Schaub's attempts. His receivers are Jones and Walker, so I see Foster getting over 25 carries.

Good move?
