This is a very difficult week to predict who will be playing and how much. An example of this is LeSean McCoy, Jerome Harrison, and Owen Schmitt.  McCoy could last from one series to a half and then Harrison could play from most of the game to a half and Schmitt could vulture goal line looks and some carries from Harrison. So even though we know McCoy is going to sit at some point it’s hard to feel confident in his back up.  Of course that is just one example, but many of them aren’t cut and dry.  I’ll have another post looking at some of these, including injuries.  It will be a delight.

    Please help crazy week 17 champion ship! Eli, Ben or Hill @
    QB also pick 3 out of Marshall, Fitz,Bowe, Harvin. Thanks for your
    help, great site this year!

    ..went with McGee over Grossman (gross options I know) in a
    two-QB league thanks to your QB and D/ST rankings. I’m hoping
    Cutler doesn’t fail me in the other QB slot.. This was all to
    preclude me thanking you for all you’ve done this year. It’s been a
    weekly staple to check in on football.razzball.com as I’m making my
    lineup decisions. Thank you, sir(s).

    Doc, I think I might be screwed for the championship. I have MJD, Colston, Mcfadden and Megatron. I’m playing rashad over MJD and Britt over Colston. Should I play Michael Bush over DMC? Joe Webb over Megatron? If all 4 sit I need to pick up a WR who do you prefer: simpson, crabtree or jacoby ford?

  4. Nate says:

    My QB’s are vick and brady. Available QBs are Bradford, Mcgee, Hill, Kolb, and Grossman.

    What would you do?

    PS. Thank you for all the advice through the year, love the site and love how responsive you guys are. I recommend it to everyone not in my league.

  5. G.O.B. says:

    Doc, would you start Rashad Jennings or Pierre Garcon in a flex spot this week?

  6. Hennessey says:
    (link)

    Hey, Doc. Part 2 of the championship this week…I got a pretty big lead (140-91), but you can never be too sure. In my flex spot, would you go with Bowe or Bradshaw? You have them both ranked 12th for their respective positions. Does the tie go to the runner? (Pun!)
    Thanks!

  7. Hennessey says:
    (link)

    @Hennessey: Oh, I also have VJax, DMC, and R. Jennings, but they are all ranked below Bowe or Bradshaw in the rankings. In case you change your mind, though, I do have them as well.

  8. Hennessey says:

    @Hennessey: 1-PPR

  9. Doc

    Doc says:

    @simmy: It’s very close. I’m leaning Ben

    @eSSduBBz: Glad to help! It’s starting to look less likely that Cutler will play the whole game.

    @DSimms: I’d lean McFadden.

    @Nate: Glad to help. I’d lean Brady right now.

    @G.O.B.: Tough. I’d lean Garcon

    @Hennessey: Hah, yes, I’d go with Bradshaw

  10. simmy says:

    Doc,
    Thanks! how bout 3 out of these four: Mashall,fitzgerald,Bowe, or Harvin?

    Great site this year thanks for the help.

    Hey Doc, I’ve appreciated your insight this season. Championship week in our league, which 2 of the following do you recommend: Jacoby & James Jones, Meachem, Crabtree, Dixon or Snelling. Thanks

  12. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @simmy: Marshall, Bowe, Harvin

    @BringbackBud: Jacoby, Meachem

    Must pick a 2nd QB in a 2QB league:
    - Shawn Hill
    - Kevin Kolb
    - Stephen McGee

  14. Doc

    @ilikestuff: Hill for upside. Kolb is a little safer.
