    I'm in two money leagues.. got knocked out in the first round by the highest scoring team in one (I was the second highest scoring team, figures) and would have won my 2nd round match-up had I won that game. Can't win 'em all.

    In the other money league (the more important one), I managed to get into the finals. It's going to be a tough match-up for me. 1 point per reception and my receivers are pretty mediocre and that's the biggest advantage he has on me. Luckily for me... Newton is taking on Oakland.

    My team:
    QB - C.Newton/T.Romo
    RB - R.Rice
    RB - A.Morris/LawFirm/K.Moreno
    WR - J.Nelson/L.Moore
    WR - S.Johnson/Mike Williams
    WR - J.Gordon/B.Hartline
    TE - J.Graham
    K - P.Dawson
    DEF - Seattle

    His team:
    QB - A.Luck/R.Wilson/C.Palmer
    RB - J.Charles
    RB - D.McFadden/D.Sproles
    WR - C.Johnson
    WR - J.Jones
    WR - P.Garcon/D.Bess/T.Smith
    TE - A.Hernandez
    K - M.Bryant
    DEF - Detroit

    I lost in my SB tonight.

    My ******** opponent played the Titans defense. You know how that ended.

    I blew my mix and match Defense this week.

    I had planned on playing the Raiders vs. KC, but sold myself on Detroit vs. ARZ. That didn't end well. Cost me the bowl.


    I still had IMO the best "Big Three" of any fantasy team I have seen this year.

    Drew Brees (1 PRK)
    Adrian Peterson (1 PRK)
    Brandon Marshall (2 PRK)

    I hate losing more than I like winning.

    In my league AP has 305 for the year....and Bress has 377 (ironically on the same team I just beat)....crazy my best three are Ryan 331, Calvin 305, and B-Marsh 308...not as dominate as your 3 but when you add in Dez, Tony Gonzo, D-Murray, and T-Rich.....hence.... I won by 47(and thats with Tynes scored 0) and am in the Finals this week.... the guy I played I traded Hernandez and Boldin too for Dez, and that pretty much saved me for the season AND that game....

    Made it to my first SB ever in fantasy football. Which QB to start.

    Eli vs. Baltimore
    R. Wilson vs. San Fran.
    C. Kapernick vs. Seattle

    Been riding eli all year but after last week pitfuly performance it almost cost me the win if it werent for Pitta. Any advice would be appreciated THANKS.

  10. Congrats on your SB apperence. I'm still in it too this is my 2nd one in a row.

    I would wait till later in the week to really decide but my intial instinct says play eli. Baltimore is really struggling on both sides of the ball and NY is going to come out playing hard after the egg they laid last week. JMO

    Also IMO seattle vrs SF is a very unpredictable game. I would avoid it if possible.

    Thanks guys. Im leaning towards eli based on how difficult of a time Bal D is having. Plus the Sea vs SF game is to unpredictable like you said and both teams D are going to be hyped.

    Bench one (non-PPR):

    Randall Cobb
    Knowshon Moreno
    Cecil Shorts
    Victor Cruz

    I'm leaning toward benching Cruz

    Tough choice though.

    Yeah, he's struggled lately. He's been feasting off of goalline carries. I think with him going into Denver, I may have his *** riding the bench.

    so guys its my fantasy semifinal, win and you're in, i have this logjam at WR could you help bench ONE wr , scoring is 1 for 10 yards and catch is a point, officially starts to count with 3 catches and 40 yards everything below is a bagel, 100 yards gets an extra 5 points so who you bench

    WR Roddy White @ Detroit
    WR AJ Green @ Pittsburgh
    WR Mike Wallace vs Cincy
    WR Danny Amendola @ Tampa Bay

    i'm seriously thinking about benching roddy white, he has sucked 2 out of the last 3 and i really have a history of players not performing well on gamedays that are not sundays, your opinions are very welcome PLEASE !!!

    I made it to the championship game, now i have a huge decision at rb. I have to start 2:

    Ray Rice vs NYG
    Knowshon Moreno vs Clev
    Vick Ballard vs KC
    David Wilson vs Balt

    I'm thinking of going with Rice and Moreno, but Rice has been doing nothing lately. The Ravens have me concerned.

    i would go the same route, i have kind of the same problem with roddy white who recently is boom or bust, but rice and moreno seems the right move, although i hope moreno will suck, since he is my opponent

    I made it to the championship game as well. Back to back years only playing in one league a year not too shabby...so anyways


    Greg Olsen vs the Raiders or

    Jermaine Gresham vs the Steelers?

    Gresham's been better consistent but Newton has been playing solid lately and it's fricken Oakland

    I think I'd go with Olsen hoping for a 1-2 TD game from him.

    Pick Three:
    Stevie Johnson vs Miami
    James Jones vs Tennessee
    Lance Moore vs Dallas
    Mike Williams vs St Louis
    Bradon Gibson vs Tampa Bay

    It's a 1 point per reception league... Right now I am thinking Johnson, Jones, and Moore but I'm not set in stone so to speak.
