Ouch. Did you load up on wr's?

Tough call. All will be splitting carries. I'd go with Harrison and Brown. If only for the sake of an answer. It's hit or miss however you match 'em up.

I have one of my own in a ppr league:

Eagles TE Brent Celek @ Green Bay or Crabtree @ Seattle.

That's a tough one in a PPR, assuming that's a flex position. I am going to go with Crabtree, though, if only because he stands a better chance of scoring a TD in that game than does Celek. Seattle doesn't have a very good secondary, and I know that the Packers are going to have two members of their secondary out as well. If you are just counting catches in the game, it's most likely a push, but Crabtree has better potential for total yardage. Just my .02.

This is my personal Christmas. Dawn of NFL season.

Schaub will throw more TDs than Moore/Clausen but will have the Texans in far more red zone opportunities and they do utilize the RB out of the backfield.

I'd probably switch between the two dependent on the defense they're facing.
I honestly don't think that Foster is a sleeper this year and I think he's a better bet that Stewart for the season since he basically has the Texans backfield to himself. That said, I think I like Stewart running against the Giants better than I like Foster in an aerial shootout with the Colts.

I'm not sure... There are a lot of question marks around both of those guys at this point, but Celek had two of his biggest games last year when Kolb relieved McNabb. I think he's headed for a big year even if no one else on that offense is.

If I'm a defensive coordinator against the Eagles I go into a base nickel and split outside linebackers into the flat and a two deep zone, and dare the Eagles to beat me with LeSean McCoy. I agree with you about Celek, I just think it's a tough call to pick against Crabtree. I wouldn't want to make that decision as it is most definitely NOT a slam dunk.

I'm going with Crabtree week one. I think he'll get more looks. On the flipside if Kolb is in a jam he could dump a lot of passes to Celek. Those rinky dink plays add up in ppr. But I'll hold firm with Crabtree and see what happens.

Start one WR, Eddie Royal (Denver, @ Jax) or Aromashado (Bears, vs lions)

until I see that Royal has a pulse, I wouldn't feel comfortable starting.

Aromashado, should get plenty of Cutler love this yr.

Default Which Punter

This is my first season playing in an Individual Defensive Player league and the 1st season using a punter. The punter can rack up some decent points for punting yardage and extra points for inside the 10 and 20. I have the Seattle & Oakland punters. My question is what offense is going to stall more this week, Oakland at Tennessee or Seattle hosting San Francisco? I'm leaning towards starting the Seattle punter.
