Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

I've been streaming QBs in one league, landed on Palmer 4 games ago and haven't looked back. He's been a QB1 over that span and draws a Rams defense at home that he torched for 325 and 2 TDs in game 1.

I'm sitting Romo for Foles and prefer McCown too. The gameplan should be very run heavy as that's the Bears significant weakness and Romo's stats are down in the season's second half. McCown gets you a solid 20-24 fantasy points every week.

Rainey and I don't think it's close. He's played the number 2 and 3 run defenses the last 2 games, but, look at his results: the OC remained committed to the run and Rainey got all the touches. Boldin's in tough this week.

Keep in mind all of the fantasy bloggers remain over invested in Ball because they all had him as the Denver starter, rookie of the year and all pro at the start of the season. Now they're doubling down on a poor call. Betting on Ball over starters is a high risk game in the fantasy playoffs. It may work out if the Titans aren't competitive or you may get 2.5 fantasy points.

Thomas (most YAC of any WR) and Allen (92 YPG average over last 8 games) are obvious. The 3rd is a closer call. In a PPR it's hard to sit Wright with Fitz at QB, likely playing catchup and Walker almost certainly out. The counter is the Lions well earned 26th ranking in pass D and penchant for yielding long completions. I'd still likely take the safer play with Wright. Good luck.

I would roll with what you have. I had the choice of Raiders or Broncos in 1 league and chose the latter. Playoffs are a time to take only calculated risks unless you're a huge underdog and the Raiders could be gold or...

I'm skeptical: cold in Lambeau, but significant precip isn't forecast. Come game times you will know more. Equal weather conditions would likely mean Fitz: accustomed to awful conditions and so horribly overmatched that short garbage time will be there.

Allen is the must start: 92 YPG average over the last 8, his QBs #1 target and pass first offense. Cruz is on a team that just amassed 175 yards passing vs the Redskins and who figure to continue their run first tendencies vs San Diego. Douglas figures to get enough targets to be viable, but Atlanta likely is the NFC's worst team and, as such, subject to implosion in 21 degree Lambeau. Edelman is the WR3 for the Pats: check out the projection reliability of that role week to week (Thompkins "a healthy scratch," Dobson bagels it, Amendola 4 for 35, etc). Don't hang your playoff chances there. I'd rather play Cooper. Good luck.

I own and am starting these 3 in every league where I own them. 1 Gordon: #1 PPG WR in fantasy; you never sit him. 6-8 Desean: amazing matchup vs 26th ranked passing defense with a penchant for yielding long receptions and playing with a QB who is beyond hot. 10 Fitz: multiple TDs vs Rams last time, Palmer's favorite Red Zone target and on hot streak, but has QB injury concerns, Floyd is emerging as a nearly co-equal and, if the Rams can get pressure on Palmer, this may be a lower scoring game.

Tough one. If the real Geno shows up it's the Raiders easily, but on the road with a squad short on talent it's iffy. An OC committed to the run would make Ivory a daunting matchup, but we haven't seen that since the Saints game and I doubt it happens this week. Still, I'd start Cincy. Perhaps less upside, but the Bengals have been solid all year...and it is the playoffs: risk taking may be rewarded or severely punished.

McCown faces the league's worst passing defense at home and he's playing well. Wilson soon will join Brees, Brady, Peyton and Rodgers as the elite QBs, but he faces a tough defense playing at home in a must win game. McCown.

Spiller. I own Vereen in all my leagues and I'm starting him in all but 1, but in standard scoring Spiller is pretty clear cut: quality matchup in a run first offense and he's finally healthy and playing well.
