Default Fantasy Crisis

I need help...I'm jinxed.

For the past four years I have dominated my fantasy league. Each year I have started 7-1 or 9-0, then I stumble...last year, I'm 10-2, then lose the last two and lose in the 1st round of the playoffs. I have made the playoffs for the past three years, and have never gotten through to the finals...like I said, I'm jinxed...

So, this year I am in the same boat. I started 10-1 and lost the last three. The playoffs start this week and I am thinking that maybe some advice might help...who would you start?

Farve or Rothlisberger

2 from Larry Johnson, Brian Westbrook, Frank Gore, Joseph Addai, Maurice Jones-Drew

2 from Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Bryant, Deverey Henderson, Santana Moss

LJ Smith (ugh...) or Ben Watson

Adam Vinitieri or Josh Brown

Eagles D (giggle) or Jacksonville D

wildcard: I do have an injured player I can drop to pick up someone....

I'd also reconsider starting God over Cheeseburger. Farve is so up and down that coming off his big game last week I fully expect him to crap out. Meanwhile Panther's CB Chris Gamble (hamstring) and backup CB Ken Lucas (hamstring) missed practice Wednesday and remain questionable to play. That should help Big Ben out quite a bit. I'd also look for another option at TE since Watson left the game hurt last week and they've been very quiet about his status all week long. I have him in one of my leagues and I'm avoiding him this week.

maybe it's the playing "match ups" every week that catches up to you; I just pick a lineup and stick with it except for injuries or total suckiness.

I'd go with rspurr's recommendations.

Why not Westbrook?

By the way, your team looks a lot like mine. With McNabb out, my QB is either McNair or Trent Green

I could use a little advice also.

Vick or Romo?

jmuCJ that's a no brainer. The Falcons flat out suck in pass coverage. Romo is going to have a big day and well Vick is Vick and he faces a solid Dallas D. Go with Romo and thank me on Monday.


Billybird, for RB's you should go with LJ and Westbrook. LJ is a stud so you always start him and I think the Eagles will get Westy matched up on the crappy OLB so he should have a big day receiving and running. Gore is the #3 with a good match up but I'd still start Westy over him.

At WR Fitzgerald is a start (Bailey will slow him down but he won't be on him every play and that means opportunities.) I'd stay away from Bryant even though it's a good match up. Last week he was benched for part of the game. I'm not sure what that's about but you have a better chance of success with Moss or Deverey so I'd look at them this week. Between them it's close. Deverey has a better match up but Moss is a more frequent target. I'd look at Moss as the 2nd starter.

As I said before Watson might be hurt, but even if he weren't the Giants are allowing TE's to roam free lately. LJ could be a good play this week.


Start Vinitieri as long as you score with extra points. Manning is going to have a career day this week against the worst pass defense in the league. I expect the Colts to put up at least 40 points this week so that's a lot of points for AV.

I'll assume you're joking about the Eagles vs. Jacksonville. Jax killed Young earlier this year and the Eagles couldn't stop Tiki Barber with a net and a tranquilizer gun. Jacksonville is the obvious choice.

ressecal go with Garcia. The Giants defense is falling apart lately so the Eagles may ut up some decent numbers. Bulger is facing the Raiders who have the #1 pass defense in the league. At WR you have to go with Johnson. He's a stud and this game looks like a shootout so he should produce for you. Walker is not a sure thing this week but he going against a slow defender in Rolle so there's a chance for the big play. Jones, Clayton and Bruce are all going to be tough to get points from. Between them I'd go with Clayton since he's facing Cleveland who's secondary sucks. The problem is that I think they'll continue t run more than throw so he'll have limited chances. The good news is that he should be effect when they do put it in the air. Good luck and remember to send me my 20% cut of all winnings from your fantasy teams!!
