Who to Start Message Board
My first year in Fantasy Football and I'm tied for 1st (7-3). I have plenty of time to give my opinions to your fantasy questions. Maybe you can help me too. Ask away...
RB need 2
What do you think of the rest:
WR: D.Jackson,T.O,Steve Smith (NYG),
Im 7-3 in first place by 3 points!
I'm already starting NICKS this week. I already played Ronnie Brown. FML. I know.
Now I need 1 receiver, 1 RB, and a flex. What do you think?
-WR Manningham (Already starting NICKS)
-WR Randy Moss
-RB R. Bush
-RB B. Jackson.

Wow just start them all (joking)
I have DJax and Manningham, but I'm not starting Manningham only because I have Maclin as well. But Manningham is a great choice for you.
Austin and Bryant both should have big numbers as well
Thomas would favor well. Even though the Browns are showing improvement on offense, I don't hear much about their D
Big WR question for you: I have 3 spots so who should I play out of St Johnson, Collie, Breaston, M Thomas, N Washington, Burleson, and L Moore? Also, I have Pettigrew and Heap - which TE should I play? Thanks for the advice.

Nate Washington vs Washington ('skins D looked wide open after the Eagles stopped by for a visit)
Mike Thomas vs Cleveland (he may not have another amazing game winning catch but Garrard loves throwing his way. Plus Sims-Walker may not play. Thomas may get even more his way)
Lance Moore vs Seattle (the Seahawks have trouble being consistent. It will be the same heading to "Nawlins")
Todd Heap vs Carolina (he just seems more reliable to me. Plus the Panthers D are just giving passing yards away)

im 4-6 and im in 10th, im not completely out of it though, the 4th-6th place teams are 5-5 (6 teams make the playoffs), i play another 4-6 team this week, the last place team the week after, and the best 4-6 team the last week of the regular season
Alright so I'm 2nd in the league at 7-3. I'm pretty much in the playoffs so I'm just trying to get better matchups. I have been proposed a trade, LT FOR RAY RICE. I would be getting rice. Projections wise, everything points towards rices matchup. I'm just not sure if I can trust LT in the playoffs with a split back situation... Any ideas?

I agree about the split carries... I have that issue with Thomas Jones (KC). Ray Rice, to me, seems to be a better option toward the end. Here's why...
A) He can run
B) He can be a go-to target for Flacco
OMG dude pull the trade now. Rice's numbers have gotten back to what they were last year as far as yardage, he's still lacking in td's but now that they are throwing to him more that should pick up, and Greene is going to be pulling more and more carries as the year goes on and LT's old legs get tired. The jets did the same thing last year and used greene alot late in the year and into the playoffs.
