    Looks like playing Gado is a consensus.

    I am reluctant to sit Westbrook instead of Brown because
    1) Brown splits time with Ricky
    2) Westbrook might get more carries with McNabb out

    On the flip side, Westbrook is facing the Giants defense which is better than Brown facing the Cleveland defense.

    I'm so confused.[​IMG]

    I think I will stick with the "play your top picks" rule and play Westbrook.

    QB Advice needed:

    Should I start Hasselback vs. SF, or Bulger vs. Arizona?

    I'm leaning towards Bulger

    I'd start Bulger. It seems like Shaun Alexander's getting all the TD's in Seattle.

    Bulger. They are playing indoors which favors Bulger.

    For my final flex position, I have a choice between Houshman vs. Indy, Matt Jones @ Ten, Toomer vs. Philly, or Patrick Pass vs. New Orleans. Right now I have Houshman in the lineup, but Indy's defense is not a great matchup. Opinions?

    The rest of my lineup:

    QB: Plummer vs. NYJ
    RB: Alexander @ SF
    WR: Holt vs. Ariz
    Flex: Gado vs. Min, Greg Jones @ Ten

    I would start Matt Jones vs Tenn. While Houshman is considered a bad play vs Indy, I don't have another choice in that league [​IMG]

    Shane, I am tempted by Matt Jones. My only concern is that would give me two Jax players in my lineup (Greg Jones being the other).

    Decisions, decisions.

    Looks like Gado is back to the bench now that Fisher is able to play again. The fact that he fumbled three times in two games doesnt help.

    Gawd I hate RBs. They are either getting hurt, splitting time with another RB or doing nothing for me.[​IMG]

    Yeah, Gado cost me last week. I had a 10 point lead going into Monday night, had Gado and my opponent had Driver. I ended up losing by 13 points. [​IMG]

    I'm trying to claim Fisher off waivers tonight -- I released him last week when we had to reduce our rosters by one player (we can carry an extra player during the bye weeks).

    I'm back to Willie Parker, not that it really matters since I'm 3-8. I got torched last week, within a couple of points of doubling my score.

    I was also reduced to picking up David Carr and am actually going to start him this week over Brunell. [​IMG]

    At this point, I would have to say my best player is Neil Rackers. [​IMG] to keep from cryin'

    Who to start at RB this week?
    Pick 2
    C. Houston vs OAK
    M. Bennett vs STL (named the starter)
    M. Moore vs STL
    J. Arrington vs WAS
    A. Smith @ ATL
    J. Lewis @ DEN
    T. Fisher vs DET

    Right now I have C. Houston and Bennett starting, but Arrington and Smith be worth a shot. None of em are great starts though. Thoughts?

    Thank you, Sam Gado, for saving my season. With both of my starting RB's out for the season, I thought I had no chance at making the playoffs in my league. I managed to squeak into the playoffs, with the help of other people losing.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This week was the first round of playoffs. Going into Sunday night's game, my opponent had all his players' played. Was down by 11 points and had only one person left: Sam Gado.

    My new best friend got 171 yards and a TD.[​IMG]

    Following up on post #34 in this thread, here is how my season went.


    Saved my bacon in two leagues. I just hope Roaf and Shields don't retire because Larry Johnson makes fantasy football fun. [​IMG]
