Thanks everybody. Standard. Jennings had been outscoring Morris until the concussion. Morris sucked last game and I'm worried about the Washington situation. Morris seems to disappear for huge blocks of time, and Helu seems to get the goal line touches. Now Washington doesn't even seem to care if it plays its last three games. I WANT to play Morris. Bad, but I'm scared to do it. A bad performance by either could knock me out of the quarterfinals this weekend. Where is my crystal ball...
I benched Morris week before last and was glad I did as each of my other RB's and W/R (Forte, Jennings, and Vereen) outscored him. I was forced to play Morris last Sunday due to Jennings being out and he just sucked. I can't figure out why they're not playing him like they should, but they haven't been. I'm concerned about Jennings due to McFadden's return. It's week 1 of playoffs, and I've got tough competition. Whom should I play?

Romo only had 104 passing yards. Its easy to blame Romo, but it was easy to see that Dallas's o line parted like the red sea on many snaps to allow a defensive lineman a clear shot at Romo which kept him scrambling and throwing either poor passes or decent passes that the receivers simply dropped. Be glad you didn't have to see it.

C.J., what format do you play and do you have a w/r (flex) position? I benched Morris week before last and was glad I did. I was forced to play him yesterday because of Jennings's concussion, but I'm not playing Morris - at least not this week - until I can get a better grip on what the heck Shanahan's been smoking in skinsland.

Sorry about all the condescension, Ash Tart A. Some of us like our medals, just like some of us play league pick 'em. I don't know why. They're just fun to some of us. Yeah, they don't mean squat, but so what.
I have no answer to your question, though.

Real Woman of Genius here panicked at the sight of the blizzard and quickly benched Foles in favor of Romo. Spent first half of the game patting myself on the back. Now I'm kicking myself. Don't see Romo getting 20 pts in Chi. Oh well, the rest of the team's doing well, and it's not the first boneheaded thing I've done this season.

It's hard to answer that question without knowing who in your league needs a TE AND has a D that's projected well for the remainder of the season.

I'm going with Jennings as my flex. I've got Forte and Morris at RB and Vereen on the bench. I would love to start Vereen, but in his one game off IR, he hasn't justified bencihing any one of my starting 3, They've been rock solid.

I have Cameron and Reed. Cameron's been on my bench most of the season. Look at his stats, he just hasn't done much. Look at the rosters of other teams in the league. Do you see anybody who you think would want him? I just don't think he's worth worrying about someone else picking him up, even if someone does. About all he's going to do is ensure someone doesn't get gooseggs at the TE position. The only reason I'm glad I have him right now is due to Reed's concussion. I may have to start him this weekend. Otherwise, he'd be totally disposable in my 12 team league.

Thanks for sharing Scottypoo. Mine was the Embarrassing Drop of the Week. Had to pick up a D for the bye so went to players and filtered D's for week 11 projected pts. Buff came out on top, so I reluctantly picked them up. I agonized over it for a couple of days afterward thinking that Buff D couldn't possible do well against the Jets. Then I casually hear on TV that Clay Matthews is back with the Green Bay D so what do I do with 15 minutes before kickoff? You got it. I dropped Buff D and picked up Green Bay. League recap rubbed it in this morning with the mention of my worst drop of the week. My team won anyway, but it was a nailbiter through the end of the Monday night game where my opponent was playing Gronk and Dobson. I would have been much happier with the 17 pt cushion the Buff D would have provided.

I'd take Fred over Roddy. That may be totally stupid, but Roddy hasn't been able to do squat and, when he was last week, he still didn't. I don't blame him. I blame his QB. As long as Ryan's throwing the ball, I'm not hanging my hat on Roddy.
