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*
