Question 1: Asked by @NYLivinCAMind
Can’t believe im asking but: pick 3 NON-PPR: Arrelious Benn, Sidney Rice, Joe Webb(no joke), Greg Jennings or Larry Fitzgerald.
Well KJ, being playoff time… it is not a good idea to take a big risk on this decision. It looks more and more like Rodgers is not going to be able to go in this game, so I will assume he does not for this answer. I would start Sidney Rice, Greg Jennings and Larry Fitzgerald. I have seen a lot of chatter about using Joe Webb in leagues that allow him to be started as a WR. I want to caution everyone about this: DON’T DO IT! It seems like a really good idea, but mostly because it feels like you are cheating the system. It’s just not worth it worth the risk. In last week’s game Webb was 2 for 5 with just 8 yards passing, despite adding a 16 yard scramble we did not see enough good to think he can be a valuable fantasy-option and the playoffs is the worst time to get “cute” and make a mistake. Same thing with Arrelious Benn, despite a big game he just hasn’t proven he can provide value on a consistent basis… maybe after this week if he does well he will be worth the risk.
Question 2: Asked by @Beave623
RB help..I have Turner, Hillis, Foster & DMac…can play 3…heard Foster having hip issue. Advice?
To my other readers, me and Clyde talked some on twitter about his lineup. He also has Andre Johnson and Roddy White! I made a comment about trading one of these stud RBs for a WR. In most cases, this is the right decision. It is very difficult to make the right call when trying to decide between 3 of 4 running backs all ranked in the top 5 and trading one for a WR will help you spread out your talent to the other positions you may be weaker. Clyde however has elite talent at every position and has no need for a trade, so on to the tough decision! I would sit Hillis here and I will be updating my rankings to show this later today or tomorrow morning. The reason is, with Colt McCoy at QB the Browns have extra options for their offense. McCoy was a very smart game-manager in his previous starts and I expect him to play at a high level again. The Bengals are their opponents for the week and their secondary is what is ailing at this time and through the air is how I expect the Browns to challenge them.
Question 3: Asked by Chevis420
What 2 should I start out of these 4: Benson, Goodson, Hightower, PT. Really torn between benson and goodson…
Well, I actually like Hightower here! It is tough to make a gutsy call and shy away from someone that got you this far, but the Panthers have the 25th ranked rush defense and are allowing 132 yards per game. After such a dominant performance last week, I think it is reasonable to expect something in the area of 80 yards and a TD. Wells clearly is not the x-factor that I thought he would be this season. It has become clear that Hightower is the guy they trust the most as people try and save their jobs. You can see my answer and the answers of others on Fandemic.
