FF Playoffs Lineup Help Please

Unread postby CohibaTC » Tue Dec 09, 2008 3:40 pm

My playoffs begin this week and I am the #1 seed.

My current lineup for this week is as follows:

QB - Warner
WR - Boldin
WR - Driver
RB - Jones-Drew
RB - Peterson
TE - Gonzalez
WR/RB - Colston
K - Vinetieri
Def - TEN

I have Pierre Thomas, Dwayne Bowe, Ocho Stinko, and Cadillac Williams on the bench. As of now, I am considering putting Piere Thomasin the Flex and benching Colston. Am I crazy or does it sound reasonable? I guess the ultimate decision comes down to, which two do you play? (Colston, Driver, Pierre Thomas) or do you guys have other options?

Thanks :partyers:

Id put Pierre Thomas in that lineup somewhere. The Bears are not what they once were on D. They can be run on, and he will get the goalline touches. Colston is your big gamble he is really hit or miss. I might be tempted to roll the dice and bench Driver for Colston.

Ziner - thanks for the help here. I started Pierre Thomas last night and got 26 pts from him. Off to a great start in the first round! :nanner:

Did you bench Driver for Colston? I forgot I handed out the advice earlier, glad you took it. Maybe it will provide me some karma for this week.

I guess I should have played Colston as well. But, I have Dwayne Bowe in the lineup as of now. Appears to be a fairly favorable match-up vs. SD. But still torn between Bowe and Driver (and even was able to pick up Branch off the waiver wire).

My gut, along with every site I reference, has Bowe ranked higher than Driver (or Colston for that matter), and he has owned SD in past games. So I think I am sticking with him. Hopefully it wont even matter in the end.

If I can pass any karma along to you this week, I would be more than happy.

I guess you didn't listen to my VM about starting those 2 Saints, huh?

Sorry Rob, I got the message too late and couldnt change the lineup. However, I did win this week and am in the Super Bowl. Kind of crazy after losing 3 out of my first 5 draft picks in Week 1 to injuries.

Then no foul TC...nice job as I thought you were behind the magical 8 ball after losing Brady in the first 6 minutes of the season

Many of us lost 8 weeks of Moss at that very minute too. Injured by proxy.

At least he showed up in the playoffs, more than can be said for the AZ WR's who I own one of in every league

Not for me last week Ziner. Neither he nor Fitzgerald produced. But he did yesterday, a week late for some.

No shit, I should have won my game easily yesterday until ARZ decided to lay one of the biggest eggs of the year...oh, Boldin fumbling once again didn't help matters...now I need McNabb to go off on Chubby's Crew tonight

I just picked up Thomas (can't believe he was still a FA) and benched Michael Turner for him. Thomas should be huge this weak (Yahoo projects him at 21 points).
