Unless Ryan throws three picks and Gonzalez fumbles, I lose.

BRUTAL.

I don't know what's worse. Losing or having the points on the bench to give yourself the win.

Ha - at first I was confused. Then I realized you were talking about the keeper (seeing as Snake only put up 180/won by 110)

I'm kicking myself because that was a winnable week if I would've made the right decisions. I had Bradford and Gibson on my bench, starting both of them would've given me a win. I've gotta stop playing it cute, just play safe moves. Benching all Jags and Titans until they show me they can do something.

Yeah, pretty much everyone on my team underperformed, it was quite the pathetic performance. Not that I would have won anyways, but it would have been nice to make it respectable.

If Matthews is healthy this week, looks like I am going to bench that bum Chris Johnson, and here I thought he was headed for a big comeback year, oops.

Chris Johnson ruined football for me last season.

People who don't play fantasy football would probably find this statement a little extreme, but I know you guys won't judge me.

The worst part of the whole experience was hoping every week that he would finally start to contribute, only to be continuously disappointed. You might think that keeping him on the bench makes the disappointment easier to deal with, but it doesn't. Every time you see his name you are reminded of that 1st round pick that was completely wasted.

After that, I wouldn't have picked him this season if someone put a gun to my head.

Brown (as long as Bradshaw is ruled out tomorrow) and Cobb. The Seahawks secondary is probably one of the top 3 in the league, so I think that the Packers will probably try and exploit Cobb against linebackers in coverage. Similar to how they used him against the 49ers a couple of weeks ago.

Here's one for you guys. I have McFadden, Lynch, Spiller and Murray; I can only start 3 rb's. Who would you start?

Also my real dilemma is I have Bryant, Lloyd, T. Smith, and Britt at WR and can only start 2.

Really can use some advice here as I really need this win!!!

Ugh...Andre Brown vs. CAR or Willis McGahee vs. HOU?

I'm leaning towards starting Brown tonight. I've lost Forte and Jackson to injury in BACK to BACK weeks in 2 leagues. Ridiculous. Thank god for CJ Spiller and RGIII.

I think at this point, Spiller is an absolute must start. Leading rusher after 2 weeks, lasdt 5 games dating back to last year are solid, and the fact that you could play for the Browns run defense are all signs you should be starting Spiller.

I think McFadden finally does well this week and I like Lynch over Demarco Murray.

I'd go Spiller, Lynch, McFadden and then Dez Bryant and Torrey Smith at WR. Brady and Lloyd look off and the Ravens D won't make it any easier, plus Brady's O Line has been atrocious.

I feel the exact same way. I wasted a pick on him last year and I don't think I've ever been more frustrated with a player. I'm pretty sure he was even on the "Can't Cut" list so I couldn't even drop him.

He was on the "can't cut" list because the other owners didn't want him.

He will break out huge when I bench him: that will likely be this weekend.

I think Spiller and Murray are the must-starts at RB, with McFadden and Lynch being the toss-ups. I'd start McFadden as the Steelers have always been susceptible to RB's who can catch passes.

At WR, Dez Bryant is a lock after what the Giants did to the Bucs secondary last week. I think Lloyd is the safer option over Smith, and Britt isn't much of an option yet.

I have the same dilemma. I'm going with McGahee. Brown looked good last week but he's a guy who get nicked up and hurt, and I hate being stuck in a hole already on Thursday night. Its my flex spot so I may just go with Amendola over both, actually.

For the above question - for me it's Spiller, Murray and Lynch

For those interested - a nice analysis of Spiller's sucess: http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-tr...and-the-chiefs
