For this week I decided to tweak the rushing defensive stats a bit.  It always seems odd that we don’t take into account how defenses defend running back receptions.  In fantasy, receiving yards count just as much to a RB as they do to a receiver.  So I added that little nugget in there.  See what you think!

Oh, and yes, enter our week 16 contest.  It’s fun and educational!

    I need to start 2 of these guys. Charles, Snelling, M.Bush, M. Morris, Forsett and Ganther
    Charles and Snelling?

    Help Doc!
    PPR league:
    Jamaal in tough game at Cincy or
    Beanie in easy game at home vs Rams
    I think I give the edge to Jamaal b/c he doesn’t have to share carries and PPR

    Pick 2 (same PPR league)
    S.Smith (NYG) vs Panthers
    J.Finley vs Seattle
    D.Bowe at Cincy
    Meachem vs Tampa Bay
    I think I’m feeling Smith and Finley out of this group. I think they have better opportunity to catch more passes for my PPR league.

    Thanks, Doc and Happy Holidays!

    Doc says:

    @Randy: Agreed

    @nater1: I like Beanie a little more.

    I also see a good ppr game out of Finley. Smith is also a little safer than the others, but I do like Meachem who had a good game at Tampa.

    Thanks Doc

    Terrible decision to make:

    Norwood, Ganther, or Maurice Morris for RB2?

    I’m leaning Norwood based on matchup, but he is splitting carries while Morris really isn’t (besides the 5 touches or so that Aaron Brown gets every week). Ganther has really only been productive because of his TDs…

    Yes, I’m somehow in the championship; Ganther two weeks ago and Morris last week have gotten the job done…

    Thanks for all your help guys.

    Doc says:

    @Charlie: Gore is a must, then it gets a little trickier. Charles is proven himself by now so I have to go with him. I like Harrison a lot, but he is a little risky and SJax continues to get his 100 yards. I’d go with SJax.

    @Ben: Yeah, that is tough. I like Norwood’s home run ability, but Morris will be safer for middle of the road production. Depends on how you feel about your matchup, but I’d lean to Morris.

    This is my starting line up as of right now in a return yardage league

    QB – Aaron Rodgers
    WR – Andre Johnson
    WR – Chad Ochocinco
    WR – Kenny Britt
    RB – Darren Sproles
    RB – Jamaal Charles
    TE – Brent Celek
    W/R – Jerome Harrison
    Q/W/R/T – David Garrard
    BEN – LeSean McCoy
    BEN – Justin Forsett
    BEN – Donald Brown

    Does this seem like my optimal line up? I would say so… I just hope the game tonight is high scoring so that I can get a bunch of return yardage points from Britt and Sproles

  9. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Cheese: I think you have your optimal lineup. Good luck!

  10. Greg says:

    Look at this mess of backs! Thought I was strong with Turner and Slaton, ha ha. Rolling with Beanie Wells for sure, need to start one more. Turner, Norwood, Arian Foster, Caddy, Julius Jones, Mo Morris, or Michael Bush? Morris will get touches. If Fargas is out, Bush will too in a better matchup, right? I don’t want to be tempted to play Turner again. I don’t even know what to make of Caddy yet as I think I am leaning Morris. Wow. Thanks!

  11. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Greg: I like Bush. Morris has a tough matchup. Both could be duds so i go with the matchup.

  12. Fresh says:

    Charles or Harrison? I’d like to go with Charles because he has proven himself, but the matchups say other wise.

  13. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Fresh: Agreed, the matchups even them out, but in your championship game I would play it safer with JC.

  14. Fresh says:

    That’s what I was thinking until I saw him in the sleeper/bust article. This will be the same lineup that i had through the first two rounds outside of subing in atlanta over the titans. It has paid off so far so I might as well let it ride.

    QB- Shaub
    RB- CJ
    RB- Charles
    WR- Andre Johnson
    WR- DJax
    WR- Jennings
    K- Hartley
    DST- Falcons
    Bench- Harrison, Moreno, MS-W, Crabtree

    Thanks for your insight!
