 Same question from week 1.

Best vs. Chiefs
Hightower vs. Cardinals

Ended up starting Best because i liked his targers out of backfield, thinking Highetower is much more the TD threat.

Hightower had 4 more points.  Did not matter won week 1.

Hightower is going to want to tear his old team up and make them realize they traded away the wrong RB. I see him having a lights out game too.

 I have the Chargers defense. I am fairly certain they are not getting me many points against the Patriots this week.  There are some decent defensive options available on waivers this week.

Should I switch the Chargers out this week, and risk another team picking them up for the season?

Should I drop Joseph Addai or Ryan Grant for a 2nd defense to start this week, keeping the Chargers on the bench?

Or just roll with the Chargers and take my licks?

Sorry, I read it wrong. I'm going to switch things up a bit as well.


MJD vs Jets RB
Turner vs PHI RB
Tolbert vs NE Flex (Make sure he plays.. I'm about 95% positive he will. If not, switch him and Jackson out)

Harvin vs TB WR
Smith vs GB WR

Yes, switch the Chargers out with the Giants, Detroit, or Bills. In that order. Change up your defense every week depending on who has the best match ups.

I like Addai this week. But perfectly fine to drop Grant for another defense to start this week. See list above.

Matt Ryan vs Phil
or
Chad Henne vs Houston

Henne did pretty good last week and I think Atlanta will run the ball more this week.

Other one is Deion Branch against SD or Davone Bess against Hous or Hines Ward against Sea

Caleb you always had me in the right place last year, I ended up winning my league.

This year, I f'd up and missed the first 3 rounds and it auto drafted Peyton Manning for me. Here's what I got, not a PPR league:

QB: Flacco or Henne
WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Mike Wallace
WR: Malcolm Floyd or Deion Branch
TE: Gronkowski (or Heap)
RB: MJD
RB: Mark Ingram, Danny Woodhead, or Roy Helu
K: Henery
DEF: Pitt (or Cleveland)

I need to drop Cleveland for another WR or RB but it's slim pickins in the free agents.

These are all tough.

I would take Matt Ryan because I feel that a lot of time is going to be eaten up on the clock from Reggie Bush and Arian Foster running in the Miami/Houston game. I feel Matt Ryan will have a bounce back day at home this week.

I like Deion Branch at home against SD. Branch was Brady's main target last week and I see it being the same this week.

I'm not big on either of these.. but I would stay far away from anyone on the Rams. I would take Floyd here.

Thanks man. I'm still not hot on my #2 RB situation, but hopefully Ingram can start to blow up. If not Woodhead could pay off I put him in the right matchups.

Ingram is going to be really really good. The only problem is he has to split carries with PT and sproles. I still think they want to play him as much as possible because they know he is the best RB they have. Stick with him.... he will pay off for you.

I got AP as my other rb, so no go on starting both.  We do not use flex spot.

That really sucks that you don't have a flex spot in your league.

I happen to have LeGarrette Blount on my fantasy team - and I'm starting him because Minnesota still won't have Kevin Williams for one more week (suspension).

I don't think you have to worry about hanging on to the Chargers defense. You can just play the defenses that are available each week. That is what I have always done and it works out better in my opinion. This week, good options are.. Detroit, NYG, and Buffalo.

If you still want to hang on to the Chargers defense, I would drop Ryan Grant. I had Ryan Grant on my team but dropped him after the first week once I saw how that he doesn't get goal line carries and Starks looks much better.

I know you said to avoid STL guys, but Gibson seems like he might breakout. What do you think?

Deion Branch all day. He is Brady's favorite and most trusted receiver and he looked great last week. He is sure to have a good day come Sunday.
