Fantasy Super Bowl Matchup

Well, I somehow managed to pull it off...made it to the big show, with quite possibly the weakest RB tandem in history. Ironically, my WRs got me into the playoffs, but it was my RB performance in the semi's that pushed me through. Jordy Nelson and Rob Gronkowski combined for less than 10 fantasy points, but miraculously, Donald Brown and Mike Tolbert both put up double-digit points!!

So here I am, happy as hell, but I didn't make it this far to lose. So I need your input...

I am definitely going with Tebow, Wallace, Nelson, Tolbert, Nugent and Cinci. But I have a few areas that I am on the fence about:
1. RB2- Donald Brown gave me 27 Sunday, and has been solid. But he's facing Houstons D, and I think they are gonna be pissed. So I picked up Kahlil Bell...thinking SERIOUSLY about benching Brown for Bell. Thoughts?

2. TE- I have Graham and Gronkowski. Wide open at this point, considering flipping a coin. But I will probably end up going with the most logical choice (Still not sure who that is, though).

3. W/R (flex)- Leaning towards Demaryus Thomas for a second straight week. He brought me 12 points last week, and I think he and Tebow are gaining chemistry and confidence. I also have Randall Cobb and Donald Driver on my bench, but at this point in the season, I think one GB WR is enough (especially since I lost Greg Jennings a few weeks back), and I think Jordy will be looking to redeem himself after Sundays horrific performance.

Thanks in advance....

My only advice:

Go out there and kick his ass! Trust your instincts... it's gotten you this far.

First of all, if you have money in this league, you may want to ignore my advice

I would take Graham over Gronk, mainly because it's a dome game.

I would play Brown over Bell, but certainly would be nervous about that matchup. Any other RB's to consider?

Good luck!

I have $100 in it, payout is $700 for 1st, $400 for 2nd. I benched Brown, he put up 4.9. I currently have kahlil bell set to start (Marion barber is out) and Tolbert starting at rb. I also picked up Sammy morris, and I'm watching Felix Jones' status closely.

I agree about gronk/graham, for reasons you listed (still not certain though)

I also picked up Malcolm Floyd, considering flexing him instead of demaryus Thomas but on the fence there too.

Researching, reading, and generally having a ball trying to make a decision! Thanks for the input....
