Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

Alright, a little self-promotion before we get started.  I don’t mean to brag, but I put up 206 points in the Razzball Writer’s League for week 1; outscoring the next closest team by more than 25 fantasy points.  Did I mention I did that without Peyton Manning?  Will this happen every week?  Absolutely not, but if you’re looking for some quick fantasy advice, I have now created a Twitter account (@JRLoudon) for all of your questions.  Razzball is still the best place for all your fantasy advice, but a lot can happen between each article’s publication and Sunday’s games so follow @JRLoudon for some additional thoughts and last minute advice.

Week 1 is in the books!  That means we finally have an idea of how good or bad each team’s defense will perform which in turn gives us fantasy owners a better idea of our matchups for week 2.

Although the Oakland Raiders weren’t exactly terrible, allowing just 305 total yards of offense, they’re still going to get picked apart most weeks and that’s great news for the 0-1 Jacksonville Jaguars.  Well…at least Maurice Jones-Drew.  You see, with the Chiefs up 14-2 after the first quarter and 21-2 before the half, the Jaguars had no choice but to throw the ball.  That put the game in the hands of Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne.  Yeah, how do you think that one turned out?  Although the matchup is a great one, Cecil Shorts is no better than a flex play until we start to see something more from the QB position in Jacksonville, but MJD should bounce back nicely and hopefully get fantasy owners at least double the points from week 1.

Did you watch the ugly, ugly game between the Giants and Cowboys?  Both of those teams did absolutely everything they could to give the game away.  At least it can’t get any worse for the Giants, right?  Let’s see, who do they play next week?  Oh, the Broncos!  Yep, that’s right, the same Broncos who scored seven touchdowns against a better defense.  Get ready for another week of Eli Manning faces!  Not that anyone’s counting the days until they can start David Wilson again, but this isn’t the week to give him another chance.  Instead, start every Bronco you have.  Will they all get a TD, probably not, but they almost all did last week.  Peyton Manning, Demaryius Thomas, “Orange” Julius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker, maybe even a running back if you feel like flipping a coin or two to make that decision; start them all.

Eddie Lacy may have only managed 41 yards on the ground against the 49ers, but he should have an easier time against the Redskins this week.  You know, the team that let LeSean McCoy run for 184 yards.  Lacy’s running style is quite a bit different, but he should still find plenty of success in what will likely be a pretty close game, at least for a while.

Also, speaking of the 49ers, although they did give up a TD to Lacy, they are still one of the best run defenses in the league which will give Marshawn Lynch some trouble on Sunday night.  Lynch only managed 43 rushing yards against the Panthers so if you’re hoping for a rebound, you’re going to be waiting just a little bit longer.  In fact, look to trade for Lynch after this week if you can because he faces the Jaguars in week 3.

Remember Reggie Bush’s nice performance against the Vikings last weekend?  Well Matt Forte owners have that to look forward to this week.  In fact, Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Martellus Bennett, and Alshon Jeffery have plenty to be excited about as well this week.  The Bears had a close game against Cincinnati this past weekend, but Minnesota should prove less formidable and give everyone on the Bears an opportunity to shine.

Finally, one of the best run defenses in week 1 was the Miami Dolphins who held Trent Richardson to just 47 yards without a touchdown.  While Richardson may have a better game against the Ravens this week, Miami should give The Colts plenty of trouble.  Those anxiously waiting to see how the whole Vick Ballard and Ahmad Bradshaw thing plays out might want to consider benching them both if other options are available.  Miami did a pretty decent job of covering the pass as well, but with Brandon Weeden under center, that’s like doing a decent job hitting in tee ball.

    Excellent article….so excellent it is making reconsider my lineup this week. Please help me chooose the odd man out from this list — I get to start two RB’s, two WR’s, and one Flex. Standard scoring:

    Jamaal Charles
    MJD
    Darren McFadden
    Dwayne Bowe
    Hakeem Nicks
    Julian Edelman

    I also have Daryl Richardson whom could be part of the conversation. Thinking of rolling w Charles, MJD, McFadden, Bowe, & Edelman.

    Thank you in advance!!!!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Ditka vs God: Charles and MJD as your RBs with McFadden at flex should be great this week. Richardson might have a decent outing as well, but keep in mind that Isaiah Pead is back and could eat into his carries. You won’t need him anyway so don’t sweat it.

      As for your WRs, Bowe, Nicks and Edelman are all really close this week for me. I know I ragged on the Giants, but I actually think they’ll be passing plenty and some of those will have to go to Nicks. Bowe concerns me a bit just because of his performance week 1. He’s still the top option available in KC and should see more targets in a closer game, but 4 receptions for 30 yards against Jacksonville doesn’t exactly instill confidence. I think my preference would be Nicks and Edelman this week, but go with your gut. There really isn’t a bad decision there.

  2. jake says:
    (link)

    would you rather have as TE Pettigrew or Zach Miller?
    and would you start either of them over Sudfeld?

    gratzi

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @jake: I would rather have Miller over Pettigrew on the season, but I’d rather have Pettigrew over Miller this week. As for Sudfeld, I’d just as soon take my chances with Miller or Pettigrew at this point.

  3. Richie says:
    (link)

    Who would you rather start at the flex position in a non-PPR league? Giovani Bernard vs. PIT or Julius Thomas @NYG?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Richie: I would rather own Giovani Bernard for the full season, but this week, I’d be starting Thomas.

      • Richie says:
        (link)

        @Loudon: That’s what I was thinking as well. Thanks for your input.

  4. PeanutButterJelllyTime says:
    (link)

    1/2 point ppr. V. Brown or Gio?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @PeanutButterJelllyTime: That’s a tough call, but I’d take my chances with Gio. He at least looked good in week 1 which I can’t say about Brown, even though he did get a TD.

  5. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Dynasty question: make a claim on Orange Julius over Rudolph for backup TE behind Graham? Sky says no, as all Rudolph needs is a new QB and we still don’t really know what we have with Julius, but all perspectives are welcome.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Rudolph played for Notre Dame and was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft. Thomas played for Portland State and was drafted 2 rounds later the same year. Rudolph is also a year and a half younger. Peyton Manning can make anyone look good so in a dynasty league, I think Rudolph has more long-term potential.

  6. tony G says:

    Which 3 WR would you go with:
    AQUAN BOLDIN
    CALVIN JOHNSON
    HAKEEM NICKS
    JULIUS EDELMAN

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @tony G: Johnson, Boldin, and Nicks. Edelman and Nicks are close in my book this week.

  7. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    I already asked Sky this, but figure I should ask you, too.

    Have Gore, D.Rich, D.Wilson, Moreno, Gio, Buc Williams, Decker, and Hartline for 3 spots. Who gets the nod this week?

    6 Points per TD, 0.5 PPR, 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving/100 yards rushing, 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving/150 yards rushing

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Hope I’m not going against Sky here, but Gore, DRich, and Decker would be my 3.

  8. chip chipperson says:

    Are you in that 20 pt per TD league again this year?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @chip chipperson: Standard scoring PPR. Helps when A.J. Green, Welker, McCoy, Sproles, Myers, and Boldin all perform well.

  9. trose says:
    (link)

    Non-PPR Keeper league (keep 3). TEs count as WRs. Start 1 QB (Peyton), 2 RBs (McCoy & Morris) and 3 WRs and 1 Flex. Got 2 WRs covered with Marshall and Jimmy Graham. Will have the 3rd covered when Gronk gets back, but right now, I need another WR and a flex from among the following: Jennings, Britt, Givens, Kenbrell Thompkins, Randle and RB Ivory.

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @trose: I’m going with a gut feeling on this one and picking Givens and Ivory. You should be fine regardless of who you choose thanks to the rest of your team, but that would be who I’d start.

  10. Ny-A says:
    (link)

    Josh Freeman vs N.O. or Alex Smith vs Dal. Default espn scoring.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Ny-A: Freeman. He’ll have to keep throwing and he has a few more reliable weapons.

  11. T.J. says:

    Standard League. For my RB2 and Flex who should start Gore, S Jackson, D. Richardson, or Decker?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @T.J.: SJax and Gore. All of them are decent options.

  12. kidbr9 says:
    (link)

    How would you rank for this week? Standard Scoring.

    Kenbrell
    Marlon
    Tate
    Mathews
    Bradshaw

    Need some advice on my 3rd WR, 2nd RB, and FLEX.

    Thanks, Loudon.

    • kidbr9 says:
      (link)

      @kidbr9: Sorry. One more for consideration: Bilal. I know that’s gross, just being thorough.

      • Loudon

        Loudon says:
        (link)

        @kidbr9: 3rd WR – Thompkins. RB2 – Mathews. Flex – Tate.

  13. Tehol Beddict says:

    David Wilson is going to bounce back this week I can feel it yo

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Tehol Beddict: Spoken like a true David Wilson owner.

  14. Grant says:
    (link)

    I have got Steven Jackson, and Murray as my RB’s, with Megatron and Demarius Thomas as my WR’s. Looking for my best flex option this week. Choices would be
    Lamar Miller
    Dwayne Bowe
    Pierre Garcon
    Andre Roberts
    Kenny Stills

    Not sure if I can trust the Dolphins right now, even though Colts D is not great. Bowe should hopefully get more targets. The others are really there just as backups for bye weeks.

    • Go Pierre on your opponent’s derriere.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Grant: Honestly, I think I’d go Miller, but Garcon is a solid option as well.

  15. Excellent article. With Miami stout run defense in mind would you expect Ty Hilton to have a bounce back game? Would you go with balil Powell or Ty Hilton in a flex position(ppr league)?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Casey Weaver: I think T.Y. has more upside, especially in a PPR league. I’m not sure about a bounce back to his true potential, but he should have a better game.

  16. Dingbat says:
    (link)

    Have to choose three of the following for 2WR and 1WR/TE spots:

    Antonio Brown
    Emmanuel Sanders
    Cecil Shorts
    Michael Floyd
    Jared Cook
    Jordan Cameron

    I was leaning toward Brown, Shorts, and Cook. Any better ideas?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Dingbat: Brown, Shorts, and Cook would be my picks as well.

  17. Loudon

    Brown, Shorts, and Cook would be my picks as well.

  18. timmy riggins says:
    (link)

    who do you like at flex, 12-team .5ppr: F-Jax, Alshon Jeffery or DeAndre Hopkins?
    different league: sproles or dwilson for non-ppr.

    Thank you

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @timmy riggins: I think I’d go Alshon in the .5PPR. As for the non PPR, I have a tough time trusting Wilson, especially against Denver, so Sproles.

  19. DiRo says:
    (link)

    Would you trade V Jackson and D Richardson for Reggie Bush in a standard ESPN league?

    I have Forte and Sproles and now Vereen is injured…I want Steven Jackson off him, but not sure V Jackson and D Richardson will do it.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @DiRo: I’d say that partially depends on your other receivers. On paper, that trade sounds about right, especially if you can land SJax instead, but if that means you’re starting someone like Kenny Britt instead, I’d stick with the team you have.

  20. Mike says:
    (link)

    Nicks or wayne ROS??
    Thx

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Wayne. They should both do well, but Wayne looked great in week 1.

  21. Will says:
    (link)

    DBowe, Shorts, or Edelman in a standard league, pick 2?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Will: Shorts and Edelman, but they’re all pretty close for me.

  22. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    This week only in a .5 ppr

    Wilson or Rg3 at QB

    A Brown, Nicks or Hartline at WR

    One of the three above or Ballard or Bolden at flex

    Thanks man

    • Nightpandas says:
      (link)

      Ball is also an option at flex@Nightpandas: Ball is also an option at flex

      • Loudon

        Loudon says:
        (link)

        @Nightpandas: I’d take RG3 at QB, Nicks at WR, and Brown at flex.

  23. Shake N Bacon says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Jordy for Lacy where Hartline would fill in at WR3 where you had Jordy? Lacy would be a flex or RB2.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Shake N Bacon: As long as you still have a viable option at WR on the bench after Hartline in case of an injury or bye week situation, yes.

  24. Web says:
    (link)

    Asking everyone this..

    Any of these trades make me better? I lost Vareen! Non PPR
    we start
    1rb
    2wr
    2 flex

    My RBs are McCoy, Demarco Murray and some handcuffs (lost Vareen)
    My wrs are Julio Jones, Garcon, James jones, Josh Gordon

    1. I give Julio and get Chris Johnson
    2. I give Julio and get MJD
    3. I give Julio and get David Wilson and Desean Jackson

    I know you guys hate Wilson but Im really liking him to rebound, Im obviously leaning 3, but thought Id get your take.

    • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
      (link)

      @Web: Hard to trade Julio, but I think I actually like trade 3 as well. D Jax looked great in that offense…big thing was they hit him on some short routes and got the abll in his hands often. I think Wilson will be fine going forward.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Web: I like Trade 3 a lot for you. I hate David Wilson partially because I’m an Eagles fan and partially because he’s playing Denver this week, but rest of season, I completely agree that he’ll rebound. Plus, Jackson is going to have a monster year if week 1 was any indication of his role in Chip Kelly’s offense.

  25. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Looking for any help here. Would you deal Graham/Moreno for Cameron/Spiller?

    • Shake N Bacon says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Man that’s a tough one. I’d say yes, I’d want Spiller and Cameron. I think the difference between Cameron and Graham is far less than Spiller vs. Moreno. Now’s the time to buy low on Spiller.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Shake N Bacon: it hasn’t been offered. I was just looking at sending it. I think Cameron would be a good replacement for Graham and Spiller is obviously better than Moreno.

        • Shake N Bacon says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: Yeah. I’d try it without second guessing myself. This is the time to get Spiller. One good week from him and he will be really hard to get. Who is your next best RB (in front of Moreno)?

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Shake N Bacon: I’ve got Forte, Gore, Wilson, DRich, and Gio. We play 2 RBs, 1 W/R flex, and 1 W/R /T flex.

            • Loudon

              Loudon says:
              (link)

              @Wilsonian: Considering the other players you have, this trade isn’t as crucial for you, but I still like it if you can get Spiller and Cameron. You’re buying low on Spiller, but don’t expect that kind of production out of Cameron every week.

  26. Taz says:
    (link)

    Someone dropped Alshon in our PPR league and I could use WR help. I have a $10 FAAB claim on him ($100 budget). Sound about right? Bid more? Bid less? Thanks.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Taz: $10 sounds about right if you really need the help. I wouldn’t go higher than that, but this early in the season, if you need the help, he’s worth a gamble. The big question is, do you think anyone else needs him that badly. You might be able to get him for less considering he didn’t perform all that well in week 1. Unless you REALLY need him, I’d probably try to go $6-$7 just to save a few bucks for later.

  27. Aaron says:
    (link)

    love your site… 2 questions…
    12 team league…non PPR, who would you start week 2?

    Antonio Brown or Kenbrall Thompkins
    and
    Tony Romo or Michael Vick?

    Thanks…

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Aaron: Ooo, tough calls. I think Brown’s the safer play, but Thompkins has a higher ceiling this week. I’d probably go Brown and Vick.

  28. Marzipan says:
    (link)

    how’s this trade look:

    (ppr, two QB)

    giving: Frank gore, Roddy white, Ben roethlisberger, and Ravens D

    receiving: calvin johnson, pierre thomas, darrius heyward-bey

    roster for context:

    QB – Bradford, Dalton, Big Ben, Manuel
    RB – Morris, Ridley, Gore, Ivory
    WR – Fitz, Nelson, Roddy White, Cruz, Sid Rice, Harvin
    TE – Cameron, Rudolph

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Marzipan: Because this is a PPR league, this deal is pretty even. I’m not sure how Roddy’s ankle is going to play out, but week 1 didn’t exactly give us a lot to be excited about. If you can start 4 WRs and only 2 RBs in this league, I like this deal for you. However, I do think Big Ben is valuable in a 2QB league. Maybe wait to see how White plays this week and then make a decision (if you can).

  29. Jeff P says:
    (link)

    Standard Yahoo league, I have Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and Wes Welker as my starting three receivers. Do I trade Boldin straight up for Gronk?

      @Jeff P: yes.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Jeff P: With those three receivers on your team already, yes, yes you do. Unless you have a solid TE option already and absolutely no one else at WR.

  30. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    0.5 pt PPR, A. Brown or L. Miller?

    Survivor: OAK v JAX, PHI v SD or CIN v PIT?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: In a 0.5 PPR, I think Brown has more upside this week, but Miller isn’t a terrible option against Indy. For the survivor, I think Philly’s the safest bet of those three. Best to roll with Philly while Vick is healthy.

  31. Vjax says:
    (link)

    Any idea when Michael Crabtree is expected back??

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @Vjax: i think it was no earlier than week 11 or 12. still great stash (probably best long term one in nfl) since he was a top 11 or so WR with Kaep last year.

  32. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Ok, so I was just offered this deal:

    His – Reggie Bush for
    My – AJ Green

    I know AJ is a monster but with this squad what would you do:

    QB – Wilson
    WR – Green
    WR – Dez
    WR – Peter Waiter
    RB – Forte
    RB – Gore
    TE – Graham
    W/R – D.Rich
    W/R/T – Decker
    BN – Romo
    BN – Hartline
    BN – Buc Williams
    BN – D.Wilson
    BN – Moreno
    BN – Gio

    6 points per TD, 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving/100 yards rushing, 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving/150 yards rushing

    I’m not sure I accept the deal, but it’s close. If I don’t accept, do I counter with him giving another decent WR (say a Steve Smith or an Antonio Brown) and me tossing in someone like Moreno?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: You have plenty of talent on your bench still so I don’t feel as though this is a trade you need to make. To put things in perspective, in a league where I desperately needed a RB and had plenty of depth at WR, I traded Green, Emmanuel Sanders, and Gio for Reggie Bush, Ammendola, and Julian Edelman. Green is very valuable and with the wealth of talent you have, I don’t think Bush presents any real upgrade.

  37. mpc says:
    (link)

    Would you drop Andre Brown in a 16 team PPR league? I need to pick up a defense. I either drop Brown, EJ Manuel (Big ben is my other QB), Celek, Eifert, or Hankerson.

    I’m deep at WR, but shaky at TE and QB which is why I’m roster back ups.

    Thoughts?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @mpc: In a 16 team league, Brown still has some value, but it’s minimal. I’d probably drop Eifert in your situation.

  38. Ian says:
    (link)

    How would you rank Le’Veon Bell, Shane Vereen, and Jonathan Stewart for the rest of the season? Any of the three worth stashing at this point in a 12 team league?

    Great article. Love these. Please rank these 4 for me for week 2: Hartline, Thompkins, Decker, Stevie

      @Mark: Decker, Thompkins, Stevie J, Hartline. All 4 are nice options this week though.

        @Loudon:

        Thanks. Been trying to decide between Thompkins or Hartline. Sky is big on Hartline and leaning me that way. Thompkins seems like a safe pick this week though. Brady has to throw to someone. Julian can’t catch every ball, can he?

    Nice article. I’m in a PPR league with 1 RB, 2 WRs, and 2 flexes (flexi? flux?). Anyway, I’ve got Trent R and Dez and Garcon as my RB and WRs, and I figure I will start Demarco Murray as one of the flexes. I am between Eric Decker and Vincent Brown for my last flex (I also have DeAndre Hopkins too). Any thoughts for that last spot?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Rabbit: Decker would definitely be my pick.

    Trade Tate and Julius Thomas for MJD if I have Bennett to replace Thomas as my TE? That would give me Forte, Wilson, and MJD as my top three backs. Thanks!!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Anthony: I like this trade for you. If you’re trading with the owner of Foster, you might even be able to get a decent flex play in addition to MJD, but it sounds like a good option for you.

    I lucked out and landed a league full of QB lovers so I went RB heavy. 2 RB roster I have Charles and Martin with Bush on the bench. Do you see any reason to start Bush over either of these this week?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Bubba38: Nope. Bush is a little dinged up anyway so you might as well go with Charles and Martin if you can only start 2.

        @Loudon: thanks!

    Who should I start at the RB position 2 out of these 3
    D. Williams
    E. Lacy
    M. Forte

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @HP2: Forte and Lacy

  45. Kevin says:

    For my WR 2 and 3 slot who should I go with?
    Decker, Alshon Jeffrey, DeAndre Hopkins

    And for my my flex,
    Ryan Mathews or Daryl Richardson

    PPR league
    Thanks

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Kevin: Decker and Jeffery for WRs. As for your flex, I’m going to say Richardson, but that’s probably not a popular opinion.

  46. papajeansegura says:

    joique Bell, Lance moore, stephen hill, or kellen winslow for the flex this week?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @papajeansegura: I like Bell’s upside this week.

      • papajeansegura says:

        @Loudon: thanks was thinking the same hope you’re right

    @Loudon, thanks for the advice in the above answers. I didn’t do the AJ for Bush deal. I did counter with Dez for Bush, but he turned it down. I’m still waiting on a response in the Graham/Moreno for Spiller/Cameron deal.

  48. Wilsonian says:

    And you still think Gore over Hartline in a flex with 6 Points per TD, 0.5 PPR, 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving/100 yards rushing, 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving/150 yards rushing?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: With those bonuses, they’re closer. Because of the PPR aspect, I’d probably go Hartline at this point. I also think he’s more likely to hit 85 yards than Gore is to hit 100 this week.

    My Starters and Bench are so good I am having trouble with week 2 choices…

    QB Mike Vick or QB Cam Newton? Newton let me down last week

    Starting:
    Jamal Charles RB1
    Trent Richardson RB2

    But I’ve got on bench:
    Chris Johnson
    Joique Bell

    Starting:
    Victor Cruz WR1
    Jordy Nelson WR2
    Desean Jackson Flex

    Bench:
    Hakeem Nicks
    Anquan Boldin
    Brian Hartline

    also starting
    Jared Cook TE
    Cowboys D/ST
    Randy Bullock K

    Have I made wise choices?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Ryan: Vick against San Diego? Hard to beat those odds. As for the rest of your team, you’re making all of the right choices. I’ll warn you, because your team is as good as it is, you will almost definitely be benching someone who performs better than one of your starters, but don’t let that sway you from thinking you made the right call here.

      • ryan says:
        (link)

        @Loudon: thanks I’m still mulling bold in or nelson but jordy the safer bet

    I need some line up advice (don’t we all?)….
    Ppr league should I start Jordan Cameron or Mike Wallace on my flex spot. Baltimore gave up a chunk to Thomas on the first half but not much in the second half. I wonder if Baltimore will be more prepared to another TE threat in Cameron….Mike Wallace has said he wants the ball more this week. What should I do??

    Also, Russell Wilson or Tony Romo this week on ppr league?? (Wilson at home against a tough niners def or romo against a surging good defense at Arrowhead?)

    Thanks!! Keep up the good work!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Dave: I don’t blame Wallace for wanting more than 1 catch for 15 yards on 5 targets. I think any receiver would be disappointed with that. I mean, even Aaron Dobson would be disappointed with that. Still, I’d have more faith in Cameron right now. I also like Romo over Wilson this week. I think that game will be pretty close and Romo will need to keep throwing the ball.
