    Didn't Like Waking Up This Morning

    Last night i was up against Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson... I play in a PPR league so i was pretty upset with their outcome (especially Marshalls 11 catches, 41 pts combined). My average week is around 140 pts. I am starting brady, welker, braylon edwards, westbrook gates and a player to be named at my flex, which consists of Jacobs, Portis, MJD, Fargas And The Other AP. Im having a tough time because I feel I need to put someone in with the best upside... Im stuck with Portis right now tell me what you think.. Id be free to answer any questions.

    • Lets not forget about weather and how it affects touches. Portis may be a ton of touches, since the forecast for the game is windy (50 mph windys, according to Al Roker, The Today Show). Same thing should happen with MJD, but since he splits carries with FTaylor, I would favor Portis. Jacobs should get a bunch of touches since its the same game. Fargas is hurt, I would stay away from him, since LJordan did well last week. I would have to put all of my eggs in one basket and go with Portis and Jacobs.

    • As for your RB situation...I'd take Portis or Fargas...AP plays good Minn run defense...MJD taking a back seat to Taylor lately, Jacobs I absolutely hate this year and he is not 100% plus droughns gets the TD's anyway.

      Either way....look for Brady to explode again and it probably won't matter who you throw in there

    • Dude, you have nothing to worry about. As you, I am in a ppr league and also went against marshall. Only problem is the guy I'm facing has Brady, Edge, Braylon, Witten, Ward, Pitt D. The guy only had one loss all year. My team...I'm stuck with either Roethlisberger or Rivers at QB, Westbrook, Bush (out)...so it's either Stecker or Mason as my flex, Fitz (questionable) Welker, Cooley, Jags D (which conflicts w/ Roethlisberger since they play each other)

      Bottom line...with your lineup (esp Brady vs. NYJ)...you should win

    • i'd go with MJD or Fargas, MJD getting the touch down..and yards (usually break out long one, eventhough split carries with taylor), fargas getting lots of touches, good for ppt.. so pick anyone, u can't go wrong...stay away from portis...he burned me more than helped me.

      • Oh hes done his fair share of that BS to me too... I jus have questions with these players. MJD- hasn't been productive as of late and fred taylors been basically their feature back minus goaline. Fargas- I see now that his bruise is apparently fine but dont you worry the same thing that happened last week may happen this week (15 carries-behind all game). Jacobs and Portis i feel are my two best plays even though jacobs for some awful reason is not receving goaline carries.
