If you're having any questions going into each week, post them in this thread, and if enough users provide answers, it could become very useful to all of us in fantasy football leagues.
 
I've got a couple questions.
 
In week 1, do I start Aaron Rodgers against a nasty San Francisco defense, or do I take a chance and throw Tony Romo out there against NYG? I'm leaning toward Rodgers, because I think weakness at the safety position is going to cause problems for San Francisco's pass defense, and I also expect Aldon Smith to come down to earth. However, I can't deny that with two excellent quarterbacks at my disposal, I have no issues with at least the idea of benching Rodgers for Romo in week 1.
 
Also, Dallas neutralized Victor Cruz in week 1 last year--he had trouble with both Carr and Claiborne. Do I start him with Brandon Marshall, or do I start Stevie Johnson (Buffalo is playing NE) at my #2 receiver? Obviously if Manuel doesn't play, that'll make my decision for me.
 
I have four running backs (David Wilson, Darren McFadden, Reshard Mendenhall, and Mark Ingram). As of now, I'm starting Wilson and McFadden. is that who you'd start, if you were me?

Tough start, I'd say go with Rodgers, but I have a feeling that Romo could do well against the Giants. 

 

The opener is going to be amazing, and the Giants always have trouble on defense.

It's true, he'll still go off on the 49ers.

This is probably a given, but I'll ask anyway.

 

Ben Rapesburger against the Titans

OR

Andrew Luck against Oakland Raiders?

 

I'm like 95% on Andrew Luck right now.

Romo is not actually a bad option. Last two years his numbers are solid against Giants. 3 good games, 1 real bad game.

 

2011: 321 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT

2011: 289 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT

2012: 307 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT

2012: 437 yards, 1 TD, 4 INT

 

and Giants secondary is rough right now. Thomas & Amukamara are our top 2, not even sure if Webster is healthy I haven't been paying attention, Stevie Brown is done for the year so Rolle is our only reliable Safety until someone steps up. JPP questionable for the game so the pass rush is just Tuck & Kiwanuka. I'd still go with Rodgers, but it's not a bad backup having Romo this week. Only downside is Giants tend to play real well at Dallas.

Webster is playing, he will most likely cover man #2 while Prince covers Dez.

10 Team League: 2 Starting QBs, 3 Starting RBs, 3 Starting WRs, 1 Starting TE, 1 Starting K

 

Bold=Starter

 

QBs: Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer

RBs: CJ Spiller, Jamaal Charles, Daryl Richardson, Bernard Pierce, Danny Woodhead

WRs: Randall Cobb, Larry Fitzgerald, Reggie Wayne, Torrey Smith, Kenbrell Thompkins, James Kerley, Julian Edelman

TEs: Vernon Davis, Jordan Cameron

Ks: Justin Tucker, Steven Hauschka

 

 

Overall, really like my team. RB situation could be better, but JC+CJ is a nasty duo. Bernard Pierce I like a lot as a backup. Torrey Smith as a backup WR is straight filthy, and hopefully KT does well as NE's #2 WR (possible 75 catch season??). Edelman was my last pick, and I took him over others because if Amendola gets injured, which is a solid chance, Edelman jumps the depth chart from #5 WR to starting slot, possible #2 targeted WR. Didnt hurt as a flier.

Witten went just before I went to take Vernon, but he isnt a bad consolation prize in the slighest. And Jordan Cameron, as a backup?? Filthy. Justin Tucker is a solid kicker, and Hauschka too.

 

I should be able to win my league, get about $250 (its my dad's team that I drafted. He put in the $50 entry fee, and I get half of the winnings lol)

Neither. Go get Jordan Cameron. Weeden is going to throw to him every single play until Josh Gordon gets back.

Go Heath for now. He's coming back sooner, from a less freaky injury, and is more likely to be effective this season. Pitta's injury was so insane that I can't imagine him being himself, even if he comes back.
