    7-4 now with my shitty team. Shoulda been 8-3 and the division lead if not for Vick in last weeks MNF, but I'm not complaining - I've survived so many weeks this year because my opponents stars had shitty games...so I was due for getting rocked. Still rolling with Flacco at QB and will probably run with Charles, Mcfadden, Hillis, Wayne and Santonio Holmes as my every week rb/wr. Revolving door at D and will drop Dan Carpenter since Tyler Thigpen won't get the dolphins anywhere close to fg range. I've got Randy moss (dead to me) and Gates on the bench, as well as Knowshon. Trying to trade Moreno for a more solid starting QB...also thinking about benching Flacco and riding Kitna's hot streak. Or is that stupid? I resolved three weeks ago never to use any cowboys again... [​IMG]

    Flacco is 12th in my league for qb's, that's pretty solid. I wouldn't mess around with trying to optimize, it doesn't really pay off. Much better off to put up a consistent point level and take your chances than a scoring roller coaster, IMO.

    I can start up 5 WRs

    Crabtree
    Colston
    Owens* (thinking of benching him this week)

    Flex 1: Deion Branch
    Flex 2: Santana Moss

    thinking of benching Owens for James Jones, and could start Blount or Reggie Bush, Steve Smith (Panthers), Shiancoe, or Hagan.

    Roethlisberger or Peyton Manning.

    Well my fantasy football season all comese down to tonight. Because of tiebreakers I have to win my division outright, which I can do if I win this week. Coming into MNF I am tied with my opponent -- he has Danny Woodhead (great name for a pron star) and I have San Antonio Holmes.

    I'd defeinitely feel good about having Holmes in that matchup. The bye is on the line tonight in my league; I have an 11 point lead and Holmes going v. my opponent has Braylon Edwards.

    Oh, how I hate it coming down to Monday night.

    Missed the playoffs for the first time four years. Another 36 points throughout the course of the season and I'd have been in.

    I'm in at 6-7. Second highest points scored along with far and away the most points scored against makes me rething the head-to-head format :/

    I had that in one of my leagues. My brother was 8th in points and was in 1st place. His points against was 140 pts lower than anyone else in the league.

    I went 8 and 5 in my league this year with only 1 division loss. This is my first time making the playoffs (I've only been in this league for 4 seasons). It's an auction style league and after screwing up in auction strategy this year and overpaying for a few busts I lucked out when I picked up BJGE in week 1 on the waiver wire and by trading for Turner.

    I'll need my luck to continue in the playoffs though as my 1st round opponent has some pretty cake match-ups this week.

    I also somehow managed to win high score on 5 different weeks yet I was 4th or 5th in total points scores.

    Lacking consistency. I had the same problem 80 pts some weeks and 180 some weeks. What kills is when you have the second highest weekly points and the only person that has more points than you is your matchup... you would've beat the 10 other teams.

    My team's loaded with talent/sweet match ups this week.

    RB1 Hillis
    RB2 Chris Johnson [​IMG]
    Flex 1 Blount
    Flex 2 Starks

    Do I go with Anthony Dixon over Starks or Johnson? How about my 3 WRs Crabtree, Owens, Colston. With Branch and S. Moss on the bench.

    CJ plays Indy, keep him in your lineup. Crabtree over Branch? Really?

    Maybe the weather situation may slow down the NE passing game, other than that Branch is much better

    Branch is solid from here on out. Brady always looks his way and there are enough threats to keep the D from blanketing him

    Crabtree has a pretty solid matchup but Alex Smith returning makes me worry some.

    At TE I can start Gonzalez or Watson. Have Watson in right now.

    I'm unsure about the other flex spot, Starks has a good matchup but seems a bit risky?
