I actually did start Fitz over Schaub this weekend. Fitz did decent with 19.

Schaub sucked against Indy last time (it was the Arian Foster show), so I sat him this week.

Anyone else plagued with injuries? I have pretty much replaced my entire team except for 2 guys...all because of injury.

Also, I have Wes Welker (vs. Vikings), Randy Moss (@ Pats) and Percy Harvin (@ Pats), which 2 would you start?

Any thoughts, recommendations would be appreciated! Thanks....
Sure hope you didn't follow my advice yesterday. This explains why I stay around the bottom of the standings.

I will give an update on what transpired with me yesterday. I followed Skel's advice and started Jamaal Charles at the flex, and I want to thank you, very, very much! I also benched Harvin, in favor of Garcon, so that game is pending, obviously.

With that said, this is how dominant I was yesterday: I benched 90 points, and I am still winning 106-100, with Foster and Garcon still to play, and my opponent's books are closed for the week. Suggested in another way, I am a winner, unless Foster and Garcon combine for 3 fumbles, less than 40 total yards, and no receptions. Suggested in still another way, I have a better chance of a) getting pregnant by sitting on a toilet seat (I am a male) or b) Travis Henry obtaining a writ of habeus corpus, signing a one day contract with the Texans, and scoring for my opponent. You can tell I am in a giddy mood!

Anyway, I benched Fitzgerald, who had 28 points, Brandon Lloyd, with another 26, Harvin, who amassed 18 points, as well as Mike Tolbert, who had a decent game. And my QB, Roethlisberger, only had 5 total points. Also, my regular QB, E.Manning, was on bye, and so was WR S.Smith.

This is one of those times when you feel as though your team is peaking, and you are invincible. Of course, this is also the time, invariably in fantasy football, where one's fortunes turn. You want your team performing on this level in week 15, not week 8! But for now, I'll be satisfied with sole possession of first place.

7-1 in one league, 0-8 in the other. I've never had such polar opposite seasons before. I still set my 0-8 teams lineup every week, im not just giving up on it like a lot of people do. I want to play spoiler at least at this point.

I dont like to brag but you know..it seems I have a gift when it comes to useless fantasy football info. I would have told you to start fitz. In fact I might have or maybe i told someone else to start him. He is a star

However my gift did not forsee me benching green ellis and him running for 100+yards with 2 tds which led me to my 2nd loss in a row

Got a big decision this weekend

2 RBs 2 WRs 1 flex

I have L. Blount (vs ATL), Ray Rice (vs MIA), Matt Forte (vs BUF), G Jennings (vs DAL), Anquan Boldin (vs MIA), Pierre Garcon (vs PHI), Malcom Floyd (vs HOU), J. Stewart (vs NO), M. Williams TB (vs ATL)

Complete head scratcher

I think for sure you want Ray Rice and Greg Jennings. Given what the Titans did to the Eagles secondary, I would probably go with Garcon. That leaves an RB and a flex. I don't think I would go with Blount, because I think the Falcons are going to have the Bucs playing from behind, the same goes with Stewart. I think you go with Forte as RB 2, against the Bills, who were shredded by the Chiefs running attack last week. That leaves you with a flex player, in the form of Boldin, Floyd or M.Williams. This is your crapshoot choice in my opinion. At the risk of overanalysis, I think I'd go with Floyd, slightly, over Boldin and M.Williams. The Texans rank last in pass defense, and Gates is going to be very hobbled in the game this week, even if he plays.

Ray rice for sure. Miami is not bad against the run but ray rice will touch the ball atleast 20 times giving him a better oppurtunity to score than anyone else. Jennings is an obvious choice especially since rodgers will bounce back from a bad performance last week. Id probably bench garcon seeing as how collie will most likely be back this week and start either williams or floyd or both.
