Week 9 War Room

posted by Jeff

Get out your calculator. Don’t worry, you don’t necessarily need your confusing graphing calculator from calculus class, just the calculator on your phone will suffice. Ok, the fantasy season is 16 weeks long, week 1 through league championship week. Take those 16 weeks and divide them by 2, and we can deduce that we are smack dab in the middle of our 2012 fake football odyssey. Just a few regular season weeks and a few measly playoffs games stand between us and our own fantasy championship parade. With wins at a premium, each week is of the utmost importance. Make sure you are maximizing your lineup for week 9, by digging into The Fake Footballs’ Week 9 War Room below…

  • 14 Team PPR: My current RBs are Martin, Alex Green, Kendall Hunter & Andre Brown. Players only go on waivers when they are dropped. Do you think it’s worth it to scoop up Marcel Reece right now? If so, which rb would you drop?

    • Thats a tough call with Goodson’s status up in the air still. I guess I would say Green or Hunter for the drop but they are all so close. Hunter has better upside, so I guess dump Green as Starks is taking some of his work now anyway. This is still a risky proposition with Goodson’s injury unknown.

  • I was offered two offers by the same owner.

    1st: My Lynch and Cobb for Charles and Gore.
    2nd: My Lynch for Charles and McGahee
    starting rosters: qb, rb, rb, wr, wr, w/r/t
    My Team
    RG3, Stafford
    Lynch, DMC, Murray, Pierre, D.Rich, Dwyer
    Wallace, Jordy, Cobb, Hartline, Britt
    With the injuries to Murray and DMC I’m really tempted. I also feel it’s the best time to sell Cobb especially since I only start two WR’s. Which one if any should I do?

    • I would hold onto Cobb, especially with Nelson banged up. I wouldn’t really argue with deal #2 if you wanted to pursue that, although Murray should be back next week.

  • 2 things:

    1) Thoughts about J-Stew moving forward?
    2) Time to get rid of Vikings D?

    • I think J-Stew will be ok going forward, but 9 carry 37 yard games will happen along the way. I am more of a D streamer, so I think you can definitely move on from Minnesota and survive.

  • 10 Team PPR: Eli, Cruz, Marshall, Wayne, Rice, AP, DMC, Gates. Bench: Dez, Bell, Vernon, Luck, Amendola, Beanie, Hanson, Hou. In 1st place right now, looking to make 1 more trade to keep my team strong. I was thinking about trying to trade Luck, DMC &/or Amendola. What kind of trade would you recommend I go for?

    • Well it looks like you won’t get anything for DMC now after the injury, but you may be able to attempt a trade involving Luck to get you a DMC replacement if that is something you’re looking for. No sense in holding both Eli and Luck.

  • Cobb/Pierre

  • pick 2: Jordy, Cobb, Pierre

  • D Brown or Ballard?

    • Ballard is starting so I’d go with him

  • standard league question: antonio brown, daniel thomas or vick ballard for flex. thanks!

    • Brown

  • Kendall Wright or Andre Brown for a flex spot?

    • Wright

  • PR need 2. JNelson, Nate Washington or Golden Tate

    • First 2

  • Tony Gonzo or LeShoure at flex? PPR for WR/TE, not for RB. 10 pt rushing TD/7 pt receiving. Thanks!

    • I’d go with Gonzo

  • Pick 1 for flex (non-ppr): Dez, Hartline, Felix Jones

    • I would hold out until SNF and if Dez is inactive, sub Felix in

  • Antonio brown our Pierre Thomas in 0.5 ppr?

    • PT
