    Line-Up help for Playoffs!

    Managed to scrap my way into the playoffs and was wondering if any of you could give me some input on lineup selections.

    My opponent is a jackass and I really want to beat him!

    Thanks!

    QB
    Aaron Rodgers vs. Carolina or McNabb vs. Arizona

    RB's (need two)
    Marshawn Lynch vs. San Fran
    Ryan Grant vs. Carolina
    MJD vs. Houston
    Warrick Dunn vs. N.O.

    WR's (need two)

    Coles vs. Broncos
    B. Marshall vs. Jets (my opponent has Jay Cutler, so could cxcl each other)
    Welker vs. Pittsburgh
    D. Jackson vs. Arizona

    TE

    Dustin Keller (easy cause he is my only TE)

    K

    Gostkowski

    Defenst/ST

    Jets
    Giants
    Packers

    Knowing some stuff about your opponent's players/roster always helps, but I made some picks w/the info. you gave...(underlined).

    -IMO McNabb has the higher ceiling of your 2 QB's, so I go McNabb...but maybe you don't need to take that (risk?) depending on the opponent's roster.

    -I'd go for the cancel if you know he's playing Cutler and start Marshall. Of course, Cutler could always go nuts via Royal and Scheffler, but maybe you at least mitigate some damage. Depends on the rest of his roster. Also, Coles over Welker is a gut feeling...Jets vs. Broncos depleted D/Pats vs. pretty good Pitt D.

    -D I'd go Giants, just because you're hoping for some scoring on both sides in t he Jets/Broncos game, so if that does happen you may not want Jets D...if this includes ST, Hixon had a couple long returns against Arizona, so maybe he breaks one for the Giants, and Washington shouldn't score much as it is.

    Thanks for the analysis! My opponent has had 2 bad low scoring weeks but has excellent match-ups this week.

    Hope your Jets- Broncos prediction of Denver 35 , NYJ 34 is way off!


    I'll let you know how I make out.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I hope you listened on McNabb . Unfortunately for me I got to my computer 2 minutes into the game and realized my most recent changes weren't saved, so I had McNabb benched for lil' Eli this week

    I started McNabb, thanks! (36 pts)
    My opponent started Chris Johnson, Marian Barber, and the Eagles D,
    for (53 pts)
    He has left:
    Cutler, Roddy White, Andre Johnson, Gates, Hartley (k)

    I'm thinking, Lynch, MJD, Coles, B Marshall, Keller, Gostkowski,
    and the Giants D

    Thoughts?

    You're in good shape after McNabb's performance, although Coles worries me, the Jet receivers are never consistent and you have to figure they want to pound the ball on Denver. So you may want to just go Welker...he's had no fewer than 6 catches in any game this year, just 3 games with under 70 receiving yards, and his last 3 games were 107, 108, and 120 yards....but 1 TD on the season. Coles has had a couple of 1 catch disappearing act games, but 6 TD's on the season...so if you just want safe points, I'd probably go Welker, Coles is usually banged up too and won't see too much playing time if the game does get out of hand. So I guess after thinking it through I'd go Welker, if you're able.
