Figured I would put this up as it has been done in the past. Put any of your WDIS in this thread to get some other people's thoughts. It helps to include some of the league settings when asking, ie PPR? bonus'?

Here are mine for Week 1:

Partial PPR, bonuses for 100+ rushing/receiving.

Ronnie Brown @ARI or Vincent Jackson vs CAR in the flex?

Non PPR, standard scoring league:

Stevie Johnson @NYJ or Evan Royster @NO?

PPR league, bonuses at 100 & 150 for rush/receiving:

Ryan Williams vs SEA, Heyward Bey vs SD, or Collie @CHI? This is for a 3rd flex spot.

I went with Eli over RG3 week 1 last minute. Second guessed myself and now I have a feeling RG3 is going to go off.

IMO,

Jackson, Stevie, and the last one is a total wash.

I never gamble on a big game from unlikely sources and I'm usually there come pLayoff time. Stevie is the best WR1 that nobody knows.

I doubt it, Manning played over projection. Rookies are notoriously shaky and The Saints will have a lot to prove on defense.

If Manning played over projection then I'm in trouble. Pretty lousy game from him IMO. I'm confident RG3 can equal Mannings 1 td pass.

I need to start 3 of the following at WR:

Green, Blackmon, Holmes, Crabtree, Boldin

Thoughts?

Green, Holmes, Crabtree. The jury's still out on Blackmon and Holmes/Crabtree will be getting a lot more targets than Boldin.

Any hesitation with Holmes playing the Steelers?

Ohayou
09-15-2012, 08:00 PM
Well, yeah.

If you think Flacco's performance last week was the real deal, then start Boldin over Holmes, but I expect Rice/Pitta/Dickson to get the majority of the looks Sunday.

Well turns out they were all terrible so oh well.
I think I'm going to try Crabtree and Holmes this weekend. Blackmon is on the bench until he puts together a couple weeks of production.

It definitely hurt that my opponent picked him up and started him in two of my three leagues. Meanwhile, I had Cam Newton and Victor Cruz out there last night while Hakeem Nicks had to sit on my bench. :(

With Harrison and Polamalu out, I'm starting Darrius Heyward-Bay over Percey Harvin (vs. the 49ers). Am I making a bad move?

Ohayou
09-22-2012, 10:30 AM
I don't think it'd be a terrible move. Palmer throws the ball A LOT, so there's a chance the two end up connecting, but it's more of a balanced pass offense. There is no guarantee that he will catch anymore than 3, 4 receptions, whereas with Harvin, you can count on Ponder to feed him at least twice as many, even if it is the 49ers.

If it is a PPR league it is a terrible move. Harvin gets 10-12 touches/catches every game. Heyward-Bay has 7 receptions in 2 games. Even if it is not a PPR I'm never benching Harvin for Bay.

KoryMac5
09-22-2012, 06:59 PM
I agree Harvin is almost a must start every game at this point in his career. San Fran or not he is going to get his yds. Go with your horses!

No, it's not PPR. Harvin had 89 yards receiving and 9 yards rushing.

No, it's not PPR. Harvin had 89 yards receiving and 9 yards rushing.

And hopefully you started him since he still outscored Heyward-Bay and Heyward even scored a TD.

How about Ryan Williams vs. Eric Decker in my flex spot in a standard scoring, non PPR league?

KoryMac5
09-28-2012, 08:00 PM
Pretty good toss up, but I would probably go Williams. With Benaie out and the hyphen doing nothing he will most likely touch the ball 20-25 times. Decker can't compete with that.

Good point...if the matchup wasn't tough for Williams and good for Decker (on paper, of course), this wouldn't even be debatable.

Hopefully you disregarded everything I said and went with Decker. looks like Manning is heating up again, Decker looks to be a weekly must start.

I changed it at the last minute against my gut feeling :( but I highly doubt that move alone will lose me the game. My team in that league really stinks.

I'm really limited due to bye weeks here - this is a standard scoring, non-PPR league: At RB: Brandon Bolden (I don't trust any Patriots RBs), Peyton Hillis (he's been horrible again this year) or Bilal Powell. I've scored the waiver wire and beyond the just release Pierre Thomas (who I've already put in a claim for), there doesn't appear to be any better options.

Yeah, I know my options really stink for this week.

Ryan gets the Redskins horrid pass defense

Maybe Bolden in an attempt to ride his wave. Based on last week he may get 10-12 carries or more. Powell would be my 2nd choice.

Do you favor one or both over Thomas?

RichRed
10-03-2012, 01:59 PM
I have what I feel is a lights-out receiving corps in a 10-team non-PPR league:

B. Lloyd, V. Cruz, P. Harvin, Torrey Smith, G. Jennings, and just for fun, I put in a waiver claim for Hartline.

Assuming I don't get Hartline, which two would you start (three if I pick a WR for FLEX)? I'm leaning toward Cruz and Lloyd.

KoryMac5
10-04-2012, 03:42 PM
Yeah I would go Cruz and Lloyd as well. Lloyd looks like he is starting to click with Brady and Cruz is a must start every week. Harvin would be a my third choice.

KoryMac5
10-04-2012, 03:48 PM

Thomas is soooo tough to figure because he is in New Orleans strange running back by committee approach. 9 carries for 14 yds last week. Powell is another guy who is in a timeshare with Greene and may see 10-12 carries. Bolden is sure to play but how much you never know what the hoodie is going to do. Hillis is hurt and has not practiced all week. If I had to rank I would go 1. Thomas, Powell, Bolden Hillis, it's such a toss up right now and the picture may get clearer come Sat/Sun. Thomas seems to be the best option only because we know for sure he will get touches. You have your work cut out for you on this one.

camisadelgolf
10-10-2012, 10:54 PM
Non-PPR league. My last receiver slot is down to Antonio Brown at the Titans or Denarius Moore at the Falcons. What do you guys think? I'm leaning toward Moore since I figure the Raiders will get down and need to throw it a lot, but the Titans defense has been pretty bad this year.

Boss-Hog
10-11-2012, 09:57 AM
I'd start Brown.

Really strange game from Pittsburgh last night. Rothlesburger threw for a ton of yds but mostly to guys I didn't expect to have big games. Thought for certain Brown would have a nice game and it looks like he got targeted but no results. Very hot and cold player so far this season. My percentages of good recommendations are bound to go up.

I have an interesting debate myself this week, Vick or RGIII. I am leaning towards Vick just because of RGIII concussion last week and Minn Defense, any thoughts?

A couple of you are trying to sabotage me. But if Ryan Mathews has a big game, I won't find out where you live and egg your houses.

Antonio Brown - 20 yards, 0 TDs
Denarius Moore - 104 yards, 1 TD

I struggle with choosing Romo or Vick every week. Also, I was a WR short this week because of byes, and picked up Santana Moss. The pickings were pretty slim. What do you guys think?

KoryMac5

Moss is not a bad option, as injuries have killed RG III's receiving corps. I may go Romo over Vick this week, Giants do give up pts.

Celek (against the Saints) or Olsen (against the Skins)?

camisadelgolf

I'd go with Celek. I expect a lot of offense in that game, and I'm thinking the Eagles will need to pass a lot in order to come back against the Saints at home.

Hillsdale87
11-04-2012, 12:53 AM
Olsen has been inconsistent, but he could be in line for a huge game. The Redskins are the worst defense against the pass, and Lafell is most likely out tomorrow, so Olsen should get a ton of targets. That's what I'm hoping at least since I'm starting him. Celek has a great matchup too. I don't think you can go wrong with either guy

I went with Olsen because, being a Skins fan, I'm acutely aware of how atrocious their defense is, esp. against TEs. He got me 4 whole points vs. the 2 that Celek generated (would've been 4 if not for a fumble). I'm a genius!

(I'm also 3-6.)

OK, so now that Rice is only going to play for a series or two today, it comes down to his backup Pierce vs Green-Ellis. I personally don't feel comfortable starting either one, but with how good the Bengals D has been at stuffing the run lately, I'm leaning towards Green-Ellis.

Surprised I didn't get blown out. Look at how stacked his team is! Had I started Williams in place of Green (which I came very close to doing), it would have been a tie.
