We now have three weeks of football action to analyze.  Hopefully we can put the additional data to good use and make some good lineup recommendations this week.  Last week the data was able to be sorted by the column of your choice.  This additional option can be very helpful as you use the data to decide which TE to start or which of your QBs has a tougher matchup.

Please let us know what lineup questions you may have, good luck this week, and below are a couple specific names I like and don’t like.

–        Romo validated his toughness by leading the Cowboys to victory on Monday night, but had only an average fantasy football night.  With the state of his o-line, young WRs, and a tough Detroit defense, I expect another average fantasy day for Tony.
–        Brady is always a must start, but coming off a 4 INT loss and playing a bad Oakland pass defense, I have sky high expectations for Tom this week.
–        Flacco, Schaub, and Matt Ryan are all right on the edge of being called every week starters.  They fall below the start boarder this week.  If you have another option, possibly named Eli Manning, Newton or Grossman, I would strongly consider it.
–        Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford, if he can get healthy, are good starts against New England.
–        Mike Thomas, Santana Moss, Brandon Lloyd, and possibly Eric Decker need to find their way into your starting lineup in week 4.
–        Jermichael Finley versus a Denver defense who has been tough on TEs will be a great matchup to watch this weekend.
–        If Gates is ruled out, Randy McMicheal is not only worth a pick up, but potential a start this week.
–        Jimmy Graham will continue his quest to be a top 5 fantasy TE this week against Jacksonville.

    1. Romo or Schaub this week then if you don’t really like either?
    2. Best WR that’s probably available to replace Britt?

    WR dilemma.

    Pick 2: Santonio Holmes, Lance Moore, Denarius Moore, Miike Thomas

    Given what you have said about JFinley above, is Petigrew a better start?

    12 team, 1pt PPR league.

    OK to cut bait on the NE Defense and start streaming the rest of the way? (i.e. WAS or HOU this week)

  5. BonerJams03 says:

    QB Situation: Cutler vs Schaub

    WR Situation: Malcolm Floyd vs Harvin

    TE Situation: Keller vs Pettigrew

    Similar projections for each, but I can’t seem to decide one way or the other.
