Parker is going against Balty so I wouldn't start him or Moore.  Cadillac is going against Atlanta which has a below average rush defense.  Choice against the Giants, good def and he may not start.  Miami has an above average rush def and they're playing your SF boys.

I'd stay away from the Dallas and Pittsburgh players.  Start Williams and Gore?

That is kinda what I am thinking, I am just scared Williams may not get many carries.

Gore is a definite.

After that, it's really a crapshoot between Moore, Choice and Williams as they platoon or are facing tough opponents.  Williams is probably the safest of the three, but if Barber is still less than 100%, Choice might get some nice numbers, at home, against a Giant team that's wrapped up the division.

I dunno, man.  Wish I could offer a more confident answer.

Gore is a definite.

From Fanball:

49ers: Gore unlikely to play

12/12/08 07:00 AM
THE NEWS
Frank Gore is unlikely to play Sunday due to his sprained ankle, according to the SF Chronicle. Gore was still limping on Thursday and said, "I'll see how I feel on Sunday, if I feel I can't be successful with the ball, if I can't cut or protect myself."
Our View
Fantasy owners should attempt to handcuff DeShaun Foster, who would start at running back against Miami if Gore is unable to go.

Uh, Gore is a definite...provided he's healthy.   B)

Well I lost big time 150-99 I would have needed 60 points out of my RB's.  I went with Parker and Williams, but nobody I had would have won me the game.  Still a shot at some $ in 3rd place game.  Thanks for the advice folks.

I am needing help now...After an 0-5 in my other FFL, I clawed back to 6-7 and became the 6th seed in our playoffs. I defeated the #3 seed the week before this one, and the #1 seed this week. I am playing the #2 seed for all of the marbles. Couple of dilemmas, should I start:

Cassell at home vs the Cards or
Schaub at Oakland

and

Whozyourmamma at Cleveland or
Hixon at home vs the Panthers

Here is the rest of my roster for any other suggestions....

* indicates current starters

QB    Matt Cassel, NE*
QB    Matt Schaub, HOU
RB    Steve Slaton(r), HOU*
RB    Steven Jackson, STL*
RB    Mewelde Moore, PIT
WR    TJ Houshmandzadeh, CIN*
WR    Santonio Holmes, PIT
WR    Calvin Johnson, DET*
WR    Domenik Hixon, NYG
WR    Roy Williams, DAL
TE    Antonio Gates, SD*
TE    Tony Scheffler, DEN
PK    Ryan Longwell, MIN
PK    David Akers, PHI*
Def    Steelers, Team Defense, PIT*

The 2nd McNabb TD last night put me over the top in my pay league which really had me nervous after I decided to sit Calvin Johnson in favor of Marvin Harrison.  That move cost me almost 20 points.  Still took it down though.

I'm a #5 seed facing off against the #2 seed this week in the Champeenship.

Can't access my roster now, but I've got a couple tough choices this coming week so I'm sure I'll be lookin' for some impartial advice.  Maybe I'll get a chance to post options tonight.

I grabbed Braylon Edwards off of the waiver wire this week. His matchup against Cincy is not a bad one...

Whozyourmamma at Cleveland or
Edwards at home against Cincinnati

Thoughts? Anyone. Anyone.

So, you're basically asking tweedle-dee or tweedle-dum?  Hmmm.  Flip a coin.

I know, I know. Probably will stick with Whozyourmamma though. I need points! Fucking Peyton Manning went off for 32 points last night. Shit.

I had/have a few choices to make in my league.

First, I've got 2 RB spots and 1 RB/WR flex spot.  Generally, I go with 3 RBs as I'm kinda deep there and my only WR option for that flex spot is DeSean Jackson.  Harrison would've been a consideration but he was out last night.

Anyway, these were/are my RBs to choose from:

Marshawn Lynch
DeAngelo Williams
Dominick Rhodes

Willie Parker
Deshaun Foster

I needed to pick 3 from those guys so I'm going with the bolded three.  Going into last night, I couldn't decide between Rhodes and Foster.  With Gore out, Foster has a great matchup this weekend against the Rams.  In the end though, I kept Rhodes in.  Parker got some very brief consideration, but he hasn't done shit for my team since he got injured.

At WR, I've got these four on my roster.

Calvin Johnson
Vincent Jackson

DeSean Jackson
Marvin Harrison

Again, I'm currently rolling with the bolded guys.  Last week, I made the mistake of starting Harrison over CJ and it almost cost me in the semis, but I pulled out a 5 point victory.  McNabb's last TD pass on MNF put me over the top!

A couple of other decisions I have are do I keep McNabb (@WASH) as my starting QB or do I bring in the rook Ryan (@ MINNY) for the Championship.  IMO, it's kinda hard to go away from Donovan as he's been pretty solid this year.

Finally, and what might be the toughest decision, my defense.  Currently have Minnesota (vs. ATL) as my starting squad, but there are some matchup shit defenses in FA that are worth considering.  Houston (@ OAK); Cleveland (vs. CINCY); Cincinnati (@ CLE); and I think there might be one more that I can't remember now.

I'm very leery about sticking with the Vikes considering their defense is going to be missing Pat Will, but they're great against the run and that's what Atlanta does best.  Can the rest of the D compensate for that loss?  Is it worth it to try and time a matchup like Houston (who's been playing pretty well lately) @ the anemic Raiders?

Opinions, please.  Thanks.

Cassell @ home
Forecast - 33 degrees, snow (one inch), 20-30 mph winds.

Schaub @ Oakland
Forecast - 52 degrees, rain showers, 5-10 mph winds

ARRRRRRRRGHH! I am overthinking!!!!!!!! But I have to go Schaub given these parameters, don't you think?

Yeah, go with Schaub.  The 20-30 mph winds scare me more than rain showers.  The opposing defenses are a wash.  But to make it a little more difficult:  whenever AZ has Heads East they get absolutely spanked.

Thanks, guys.  Good call.

icon_thumright

Didn't really matter though.  I just knew Minny wasn't going to keep Atlanta in check (took the Falcs +5) so it didn't affect the final outcome. 

Thankfully, Shiancoe and my boy DWILL (!!) had monster games this week which currently has me in the lead by 46 points (I think) going into tonight.  My guys are done, but he's got Rodgers and Forte going for him.  Here's to a 3-0 finish in zero degree temps tonight!!
