Ok, back by popular demand is the sit em start em threads. Give me your tough decisions and I will tell you who I think you should start. I will do these threads every single week on here through the season. I've been playing FF since 1995 and consider myself very knowledgeable when it comes to who you should sit or start.. You've got tough choices and I've got answers.
 
For those giving advice, please make sure you are experienced in FF, so we don't junk up the threads with nonsense. For those asking for advice please don't post your whole team and ask who you should start. Just do it with the positions you are on the fence about. 

Bring em on....

This is a tough one but I would roll with Addai as long as Manning doesn't come back. The Colts are going to have to rely on the run since Kerry Collins will be the QB.

Felix Jones. He is getting all the carries for Dallas including goal line carries and he will get a few screen passes. He is playing a tough defense in NY but don't kid yourself, he is capable of taking it to the house at any given time.

 I have Matt Ryan vs Chicago and Tony Romo vs the Jets. Not a fan of either matchup here.

The other question I have is Steven Jackson vs the Eagles or Cedric Benson vs the Browns. I mean, you know it is the Browns, but Benson has done the week in jail. He is still expected to start though.

Honestly its a toss up btwn Williams and wells and right now if I were you I would go Williams. Don't think Zona's run D will be anything special really.

I would take Matt Ryan at Chicago. I think the NYJ/Cowboys game will be a low scoring affair. Although I'm praying for the Cowboys to light up the scoreboard. That is my team.

I would also take Steven Jackson at home vs. Benson on the road. Too many question marks with Benson. St. Louis should run the ball plenty as well. That is one way to take the dream team corners from Philly out of the game.

Thanks Caleb, that is the way I was leaning, but it is great to be able to get other peoples thoughts.

Rb's pick 3

Felix Jones
Tim Hightower
Beannie Wells
Ryan Grant

So far I have
Felix Jones
Tim Hightower
Beannie Wells penciled in

Felix Jones gets all the carries for Dallas and will get screen passes etc. He has looked great in practice and in preseason games. NYJ have a tough defense but Felix is capable of breaking a big run at any time. Plus he will get goal line carries as well.

Tim Hightower has looked great in preseason and has earned the roll of starting running back. NY has a somewhat tough defense but hightower should see plenty of carries, as well as goal line carries.

Beannie Wells He looked good in preseason and gets all the carries in Arizona. Has a chip on his shoulder and playing against a weak team in the Carolina Panthers.

Just an FYI David Garrad just got released by the Jags, Luke Mccown will be the starter now with Blaine Gabbert as the back up.

Not sure how this affects mike thomas's value but I think it helps MJDs slightly.

Wow.... that is big news right there. I remember 4-5 few years back Garrard looking unstoppable. Now he is cut. Some team out there will certainly pick him up as a backup.

Big news indeed but Del Rio has done this before with Leftwich in 07 the timing is more surprising. For what its worth I think Garrad ends up in Seattle and is starting there by week 5.

Defense - CHI DEF vs ATL or KC DEF vs BUF?

#3 Receiver - Mike Thomas or Danny Amendola or Deion Branch?

TE - Dallas Clark or Jimmy Graham?

With injuries/cutting, I am unsure of Thomas' and Clark's playability (I would have played those two). I am in a ppr league.

KC at home vs. Buffalo. Other mentions are Arizona at home vs. Carolina, Cleveland at home vs. Cincy, SF at home vs. Seattle.

Mike Thomas at home vs. the Titans who are terrible.

Dallas Clark. Even without Manning at the helm. He is still a tremendous target and knows how to be in the right place at the right time.

All right Caleb had my main league draft tonight want to know how bad my team is, I had the 10th pick in a 12 team 1pt ppr league. 6pts for passing rec'ing and rushing tds and a passing yrds bonus of 5pts at 350yrds and 10pts at 400yrds. Rushing yards bonus of 5pts at 5pts at 150yrds 10pts at 200yrds.

Here's my team

Starters
QB:Josh Freeman
WR:Hakeem Nicks
WR:Kenny Britt
WR:Mike Thomas
RB:Darren Mcfadden
RB:Felix Jones
TE:Rob Gronkowski
Flex:Mark Ingram
Flex:Jared Cook
K:Dan Carpenter
D:Curtis Lofton
D:Ndamukong Suh
D:Paul Posluzny
D:Curtis Lofton

Bench
WR:Robert Meachem
WR:Mike Crabtree
WR:Brandon Gibson
WR:Emmanuel Sanders
WR:James Jones
RB:Pierre Thomas
RB:Darren Sproles
RB:Jahvid Best

Not the biggest fan of my bench but I think I have some decent pieces to make trades and improve my WRs. Also since we can start 2TEs should I drop Cook and grab Hernandez instead?

Gracie,
I'm an honest guy so I'm going to shoot you straight. I'm not crazy about your team. Mcfadden will have a very hard time duplicating what he did last year, but if he does, that will be an awesome pick for you. Felix Jones was a solid pick, Hakeem Nicks was very solid, Jahvid Best isn't great but he is the main running back in Detroit and is capable taking it to the house. He started off really hot at the beginning of the season last year before getting injured.

Definitely drop Cook and pick up Hernandez. Brady loves Hernandez and I think he becomes a top 5 TE
