FB Fantasy Friends Official Thread
 
Figured I might as well start an official thread where myself, Utah Saint, Voodooido, Lee909, St. Thomas ... and anyone else who takes a bizarre interest ... can discuss our league.

Here we can talk weekly lineups, trades, add / drops, smack talk, dumb decisions by other league members, or whatever else y'all wanna talk about.

So ... let's start with Eli already screwing me this week!!!

All teams look solid. I like Utah's team the most.

RB1 Marshawn Lynch

RB5 Ryan Williams
WR1 Brandon Lloyd

WR3 Titus Young
WR4 Justin Blackmon
TE1 Antonio Gates
TE2 Greg Olsen
K1 Matt Prater
DEF Houston Texans

I'm already in a conundrum. It doesn't look like Marshawn Lynch is gonna play. My choices are...

1) Robert Turbin is his back up and supposed to be very good. But he's playing against the Cardinals Def which was really good at stopping the run last year.
2) Ryan Williams, Beanie Wells is gimpy and may not play. I've read Williams will become the starter over Beanie if he stays healthy anyway, they'd just like him to get more experience.
3) The Texans announced Foster is questionable for the Dolphins game. If I were sure Foster wasn't going to play this is my choice. The Dolphins were great against the run last year but Tate is a great RB.

If Foster is out, I'll play Tate in Lynch's place. Even if Lynch plays I'd be afraid they put him on light duty.
If Foster is not inactive but Lynch and Wells are, I'll play Ryan Williams. I like him against Seattle's run defense more then Turbin against the Cardinals D.
If Foster and Wells both suit up but Lynch is inactive, I'll play Turbin. It's a tough start but I've read he's a very good back.


At WR, I've bought into the Blackmon hype. I'm starting him instead of Titus Young. Blackmon is going against Minnesota's Def. Minny has a good run defense and with MJD limited, I think Jacksonville will try to lean on their new rookie wideout and see what he can do.

At TE, I'm playing Gates until he drops but I'm going to keep an eye on Olsen. The putty tats have sounded very confident in him and said he could be in the same class as Graham and Gronk. I don't believe that for a second but without Shockey there, I think he could easily be the number 2 receiver behind Smith.

At QB it's Rodgers vs. Palmer. Hmmm...tough decision. I think I'll go with Rodgers, just a hunch.

I'm playing Voodoodio this week. He's got a good team. Hopefully I don't get blown out by too much.

I'd go with Tate,even if Foster does play as soon as the Texans take control Tate will take over.

I'm a big fan of Tate

That's a good point. The Texans will probably be playing with a lead early in the game, looking to run as much clock off as they can. They'll probably want to use Foster as little as possible to reduce the soreness in the knee.

Not such a big scoring league for QB's, so hopefully just having Eli & Alex Smith isn't gonna kill me!

I'm with Lee, I think you gotta run with Tate this week.

Sure, Foster may play full-speed & blow the place up, but that's fantasy! You can only make your most educated guess, and that seems to be Tate.

I like Blackmon at WR, too.

... but what do I know, I started Eli & Nicks!!!
