Who to Start Message Board
I've pretty much got my lineup set, so does anyone want some help? Yes I'm in my championship and I've talked about week 16 til my ears bled so I think my two cents could be pretty helpful. Fire away:

I'd normally go with Gates but I'd take Keller against Seattle unless the weather is just atrocious, which I haven't checked into. Tampa Bay will have Gates covered pretty well.
I'd take Baltimore over NYG. I think DeAngelo Williams will have a better day than most are expecting and the Giants have lost their fire ever since Plax got thuggish ruggish on them and left. They're not playing up to par anymore.
I have to go with Forte on this one. The weather is going to be pretty bad in Chicago from what I hear which will reduce the amount of throws IMO. Forte knows this defense now and I'm betting on 100+ yards. Turners a great alternative, but I see Minnesota playing lights out D since they're still in the race.
keller or gates, Balt or NYG, forte or turner

Warner, plain and simple. Tampa Bay's playing for the playoff spot and their D is their strong suit. They'll come out amped up and turn the head on Rivers. Oakland's much worse against the run than the pass, so I'd much rather play Slaton than Schaub there. I see Ari-NE as a shootout regardless of weather, so anyone in that game is worth a start. Good luck man.
Warner, Rivers or Schaub? This one is killing me! I am in the championship and my opponent started Manning!

Warner, and thats coming from a die hard cowboy fan. As I said above, I see Ari-NE as a shootout, whereas Dal and Bal are gonna be flexing their defensive muscles. As far as the WRs I'd go:
Tony romo or kurt warner?
Which should I start?
And how about four of these receivers?

I'd take Hill. Thigpen's good but Miami's strategy seems to be to play slow defensive ball, a la last weeks 7-3 score (if i remember right)
I'd take lynch this week. After seeing NO slow down forte pretty well, Lynch against Denver's horrible run D is looking pretty appealing.

Wow, those are some tough choices there man. Out of that group I'd actually go with choice. I'm a cowboys fan so that could be bias, but none of the above options look like solid candidates. If you're in a ppr league then choice is even stronger. I know he's against baltimore, but he absolutely DECIMATED pitts D and he's running in december on fresh legs. I'd take Houston against Oakland if your DEF is centered around points allowed. If its more sack/in oriented, giants are probably your best bet, good luck
Superbowl on the line!!!!!!!!
Pick up foster or t. choice??
I have Giants D- not feelin confident
Pick up Houston?? Carolina??

Taking out Westbrook or Williams right now deserves a stooge slap, regardless of competition. What remains is a tough choice. If its a PPR league for RBs then I'd say that cements LT, but he's had a real mediocre season since I drafted him of course. Still, I think he'll bounce back after last week's lackluster performance, bench brown. Good luck
Have 3 spots. LT, Westbrook, DeAngelo Williams, Ronnie Brown. Who should i bench

If its centered around points allowed I'd go with houston. Turnovers and sacks would probably make Baltimore more valuable. I think Cincy's gonna put up some points and Jackson will do pretty well. All in all I'd stick with Baltimore. Romo loves to cough one up every now and then and I'm playing against Baltimore this week so a pick6 wouldnt shock me.
team defenses? any good waiver pickups
houston at oakland
san fran at st. louis
cleveland at cincy
right now i have baltimore at dallas and im skeptical

I have to go with choice on this one. He's a phenom running on fresh legs in december. Even if its against Baltimore, look at what he did to pitt. Maybe its my bias showing, but I expect big things from the kid.

So long as you get return yards counted as well, I'm going with Desean on this one. I see philly blowing up Washington in this bout. I certainly wouldnt mind the skins winning and killing philly's playoff shot but i just dont see it. good luck
