Perhaps you guys can help me out this week.. My fantasy team has to be solid this week to even think of winning but the match-ups are tough! I've fought back from an 0-3 start (Thanks to DeAngelo for finally producing) to go 3-4 but reaching .500 looks like a long-shot!
My roster is as follows: (starters in bold) QB: Kurt Warner; Matt Hasselbeck WR: Miles Austin; Mike Sims-Walker; Sidney Rice; Steve Smith (NYG); Mario Manningham RB: DeAngelo Williams; Ahmad Bradshaw; Shonn Green; Cedric Benson(Bye) TE: Antonio Gates; Benjamin Watson(Bye) K: John Carney DEF: Miami; Pittsburgh(Bye) I read James' prognosis stating that he thinks Arizona's passing attack betters Carolina's pass D, so I just hope this ends up being a shoot-out between Warner's arm and Williams' legs. I've benched both Giants' receivers due to their Philly match-up in favor of Austin/Seattle, Sims-Walker/Tennessee, and Rice/Green Bay. I've been extremely lucky with my receiving corps thus far as none of them were big name receivers, yet four of them rank in our top 15 @ WR (Sims-Walker ends up at #18). Williams @ Arizona really concerns me. I know he's either going to produce big numbers or next to nothing, and that's exactly what could cost me the game. I find it hard to bench him... if I knew Davidson wasn't as stupid as he has proven himself to be, I wouldn't have any fear rolling with Williams, but I can see them ditching the run early if there are any signs of it not working extremely well. Bradshaw also worries me against Philly as I see him getting few carries after last week but I don't think it's wise to start Green over him while he's still backing up Thomas Jones. That would also be along the lines of shooting myself in the foot being I'm stuck with the Miami D this week. Antonio Gates and Carney have both done well for me this season. I hope Miami from the first half of last week shows up for both halves of this week. It's a 10 team, standard league. All FA options seem to be exhausted. I think I've got a team capable of winning, it's just going to be crucial to make the right start & sit calls. Any advice?
