I would go Cassell and Who'syouurmama.  Love that Slayton kid.

Agreed.

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.

You have to exploit that HOU vs OAK matchup IMO.

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.
