I, too, lost this week, thanks to benching Calvin Johnson in the middle of the week, then going food shopping Sunday morning, only to get back too late to insert him into the lineup. I benched 25 points as a result. In my other league, I lost on Kenny Britt td last night. So I took an 0 for 2 this week, my first of the year.

What do you guys think of woodhead on New England? If you look at his stats, he has put up solid points the past 3 weeks and no one really knows who he is. I mean i know because im a patriots fan but most people would be like who? He is a wes welker clone, small and quick and a posession reciever even though he is listed as a RB

First fantasy tie ever, both of us had 109.66 points. I don't know anything about woodhead, but i do know deion branch is looking good, also with tate, hernandez, welker, is there really enough passes going around in N.E. to look at a RB/WR. Isn't BenJarvus Green-Ellis getting most of the running work?

I need a kicker this week, Rackers is on a bye week. Who do I take? I know I am not going to win my week by picking a kicker, but will increase my chances of losing if I go light.

I like him due to his dual eligibility and he should see more passes with that pain in the ass (Moss) gone.

You pick the team most likely to get into the red zone and not score. I dont know who is available in your league so just choose the best team that has a losing record.

Billy Cundiff is available for one week waiver work. He might be the best team, but not on the highest scoring offense. I also have Mike Nugent to choose from, Scobee, Janikowski, i.e. not much.

In my opinion kickers are the harddest to project points for. I dont follow kickers and i barely know any of their names so i cant really help you out with this one

I'm rolling with Nugent this week. There isn't any science or research involved in that decision beyond the fact that he hasn't scored less than 7 points so far this year, the coaches are not afraid to put him on the field and he's had a couple of strong double-digit showings.

Really, any kicker you select still amounts to rolling the dice.
