Sit/Start Week 2

Might as well as there's a game Thursday.

I'll start with a two-part question:

On TE, I have Keller as a starter but picked up Rudolph in Minnesota as a back up. Rudolph seems to be Ponder's favourite target, and Keller had only one catch when the NYJ offence took off, seemingly leaving him behind. Is Rudolph the best play here?

For the Flex position (standard scoring), Smith in Detroit will get a heavy workload but he's going up against a tight 49ers D. DeAngelo Williams has a friendlier matchup, but he's hard to trust after last weekend. Or, I could go with Holmes in that spot. Torn there too.

2 leagues:

Pick 2 (1 RB, 1 flex):
McGahee @ Atlanta
Richardson @ Cincinnati
Boldin @ Philadelphia
VJax @ Giants

I figure Richardson has a decent matchup, but the other 3 I'm torn.

=====

flex spot:
Stevie Johnson vs Chiefs
Pierre Garcon @ StL
Donald Brown vs Minnesota

Garcon had the big game, but he's banged up, so I'm thinking stick with Stevie.

Alshon Jeffery @ GB's suspect D or Antonio Brown vs NYJ's strong D?

Not sure what to pick here. Rookie with an easier matchup, but on the road...or a more proven player at home facing a quality D?

Also, KC defence @ Buffalo or Denver defence @ Atlanta? Should I wait to see if the Chiefs get back Flowers? Obviously Falcons offence >>> Bills offence, but the Broncos defence picked up 19 points last week, while the Chiefs went -2.

Or should I play the waiver wire and grab OAK defence @ MIA? Or what about WSH defence @ STL?

Brown. Revis will likely be on Wallace, and Antonio will get the targets.

I would go with Oakland, but if you decide to keep both of your defenses, I would pick KC. I doubt either team in that contest scores a lot of points. Denver and Atlanta could be a shootout, and Ryan looked really good last weak.

My concern with OAK is a: a short week for them and b: having to fly 5 hours to get to Miami for a game at 10 am PT...

Bills O-line is very good, so Chiefs likely aren't going to get much in terms of sacks. But you also can't count on another TD from the Broncos defense (since it's hard to predict any defense is going to score points like that). With Fred Jackson and David Nelson out, Bills offense is weaker, plus FitzTragic is always there, so Chiefs D seems like a decent bet.

Trying to decide on QB's, RB, DEF

Luck vs Min or
Schaub @ Jac.

Also have to pick 3 of 4 RB.

Arian Foster @ Jac
Jamaal Charles @ Buff
Ahmad Bradshaw vs TBB
CJ Spiller vs KC

Obviously Foster is one of them.

Bills defense vs KC or
Steelers Def vs Jets.

Schaub.

Honestly, with how terrible the Colts OL is, Luck is not a great fantasy option at this point. Jared Allen is already licking his chops.

I like Lloyd, Mathews and Ogletree. Not a fan of any RB against Pittsburgh or SF. Not a fan of Brown at all

I'd try to trade for a TE. J/K. Like you mentioned, the Jets went off and Keller did nothing. Rudolph was the far more productive of the two, and had seven targets to Keller's one. I think you gotta go Rudolph.

DWill had a dream matchup last week and did absolutely nothing. I'd definitely go Smith. He's the only back there, and he can catch balls. Much more likely he'll have a productive day.

I could see VJax having a big day against that Giants secondary, and as you mentioned, I think Richardson is the must start of the bunch. I'm not real high on Boldin these days so I'd lean McGahee.

Quote:
Stevie Johnson vs Chiefs
Pierre Garcon @ StL
Donald Brown vs Minnesota
I'd rank them Brown, Stevie, Garcon. I always prefer going with a starting RB as you know he's gonna get touches.

I'd definitely go with Brown. One possibly fluke week from a rookie doesn't do it for me. Brown's more a possession receiver, so I don't see him getting shut down.

I'd be very tempted to go with Oakland here. Miami is terrible.

I have much more confidence in a guy who you know's gonna get the majority of the touches (who also looked pretty good last week) as opposed to one of Shanny's musical running backs.

I think Maclin's a little banged up, so I'd definitely go Colston and Martin.

Definitely not Mathews, way too risky. Smith is the best start of the bunch IMO. Well him or Lloyd. Third guy I'd start is Brown. I can't see Greene doing anything against Pitt, and I'd like another week or two out of Ogletree before I'm sold.

Schaub has become very mediocre with Foster's emergence, but I think you still gotta go with him here.

Arian Foster @ Jac

Wow this one's tough. I would've said Foster, Spiller, Charles no question, but Tampa's run D was awful last year. But with that in mind, DWill did absolutely nothing against it last week. I think I'd still sit Bradshaw.

Definitely Kevin Smith. He's the clear number one there (for now), and Beanie doesn't play a whole lot when the Cards are losing (which needless to say is likely).

Haha I'm looking for a new TE, but I'll roll with Rudolph for now. Last year my main TE ended up being a week 3 waiver pickup so I'm not going to give up too much for one unless it's a big 3 guy.

Green Bay is likely going to be on a mission next game. I can't see Cutler having an "average" game. Either great, or bad. Rivers is the safe bet, but if you're feeling risky, go Cutler.

I would go with Jennings. Britt is going to be limited. Locker hasn't shown many signs of brilliance either.

I've got two decisions that I'm looking some advice for.

Should I start Stafford or Roethlisberger? Stafford is coming off a bad game and Detroit is playing in San Francisco (arguably the best D in the league). Big Ben had a good week last week and is playing home to the Jets. Right now I'm leaning towards Big Ben.

Also, should I start Dwayne Bowe (in Buffalo) or Kenny Britt (in San Diego), or even Randy Moss (home to Detroit).

I've got Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant starting already but I'm not sure who my third should be.

Schefter just tweeted it looks like Jennings is "unlikely" for tomorrow.
