Week 14 Running Back Defensive Matchups December 6, 2012  |  Chet

Here are the stats for defenses against running backs for Week 14. These numbers are over the last 9 weeks. I’ve made these sortable for ease of use. Most of the stats are self-explanatory, but FO is short for Football Outsiders and these are their overall rankings for team defenses against the run and PFF stands for the Run Defense Rankings over at Pro Football Focus. If you have any other questions about the stats hit me up in the comments.

    12 Team PPR: I put a waiver in for Reece & dropping JStew. Do you think it’s really worth it? My RB2 situation is below par. JStew, Beanie, Alex Green. I have a bye this week, but will have to start 1 of them next week. Also, last on waivers so it’s probably doubtful I will be able to claim Reece. Do you think it’s worth it to put a waiver on any of these options & who would you drop between the RBs I have. Woodie, Tate, Ingram, Hillis, D Rich, Ivory……I’m thinking about rolling with Green unless there is a major RB injury this weekend. Even then I doubt I will be able to claim them, being in 1st place!

    Hi Chet,
    Who do you think is a better WR option for weeks 15 and 16. Danario Alexander or miles Austin? I know, not rb or week 14 related but your help would be greatly appreciated!!

  3. Michael says:

    right on. thanks.

    Chet. I have DMC. My other viable RB2 option would be Moreno. Do I give DMC a shot tonight even with the bad matchup or go with Moreno with the favorable matchup?

    • Chet says:

      I’m going with Moreno. I need to see that DMC can handle a big workload which he’ll need in a tough matchup like this.

    Ppr league. Myers or Hernandez at te?

  6. Jermichael says:

    12 Team PPR: would you rather start Bilal Powell, Woodie, D Rich, Ingram, Pierce or Ivory as a RB2?

    • Chet says:

      I’d rather not start any of them, but I’ll lean DRich

      • Jermichael says:

        I agree! Trying to help a friend out! My RB2 situation isn’t great: JStew, Beanie & Alex Green. Someone dropped Reece, is it worth it to drop any of them for Reece. If I get him off waivers I may have to start him. Luckily I have a bye this week.

Week 15 Starts and Sits

  Check out our NFL DFS Cheat Sheet!   It’s semifinals week in fantasy football, but unfortunately, there will be no video for the Week 15 starts and sits.  I’ve chosen to be present when the force wakes up on Thursday night.  Like a squadron of rebel pilots with names less cool than “Skywalker,” ...


Week 14 Starts and Sits

Jim Mora doubted in could be done, but we’ve done it.  We’ve arrived at the fake football playoffs.  With a full slate of games each week and a handful of potentially inactive leaguemates outside our playoff brackets, the available range of fantasy options will likely expand in the final weeks.  Thus, we ...


Week 13 Starts and Sits

The Week 13 Starts and Sits video below kicks off with a review of last week’s picks.  It’s not particularly pretty.  Matthew Stafford and Sammy Watkins as sits, for example, were colossal misses.  If you benched either player on my recommendation, I apologize, but bad calls are an inherent part ...
