Post Start 'Em or Sit 'Em Questions
Let's keep all questions regarding who to start on a given week in this thread and keep it going throughout the season.

I'll start out, even though I seldom ask for any fantasy advice. I'm in a league where I'm loaded at RB, WR, and TE, but my QBs suck. Should I go with Matt Schaub vs. Tenn, Carson Palmer vs. GB, or Matt Stafford vs. Min? I know, tough call and I'll be lucky if any of them get 10 points.

Before last week I was a Shuab homer...I thought he was going to be huge this year. Not so sure anymore, you have a tough call to make. me?? I'd go Shuab and pray my other guys can pick up the slack

Its tough... Shaub vs Tenn could be real bad. Palmer and Cinci haven't looked explosive for the last 2 seasons, and Staff's a rookie. I think CJ could have the most potential but its a tough choice.

With Shaub you've got Andre but no one else except Slaton.
Palmer you've got Ocho, and Henry, and then nothing. I don't see Benson as a reciever.
Staff you've got CJ, BJ, Pettigrew (if he is in the calls), Smith or Brown out of the backfield.

Is it weird that we've actually got more potential then the other 2? Only downside is the INT's could lower any point total.

Do you get penalized for INTs in this league? If so, I'd probably go with Shaub; if not take a chance on Stafford :wink: JMHO

In the Yahoo league, INT's and Fumbles are -2, so it takes 3 to cancel out a TD. And then yardage is extra. Last week Stafford with the 3 INT's had 8 pts.

I've pretty much ruled out Palmer against the Pack since they intercepted Cutler 4 times last week. FYI, the Bengals also have Coles now in addition to Ocho Cinco. Schaub only got me 2 points last week, but the Titan secondary gave up over 300 yards to Roethlisberger last week. He also should have Kevin Walter back in the lineup. That leaves Stafford, who got 7 points last week, but I just don't know about starting him quite yet.

The QB stats are wierd in that league - only 4 points for a TD, -2 for an interception, and -1 for a sack.

if your losing points due to sacks, don't start Stafford. I still don't have enough faith in our line to stop a solid D from killing him! (IE Minny)

Here's a tough one: Palmer @ GB or Cutler vs Pitt?


Also,
Kevin Smith vs. Minny or Ray Rice @ SD?

Flex WR/RB: Derrick Mason @SD, Ronnie Brown vs. Indy Monday night or Thomas Jones vs. NE?

I would definitely play Cadillac over the other two RBs, but the other two positions are a tough call. I might have to give a slight edge to both Rivers and Gates though, since I don't think the Ravens' pass defense is as good as it used to be. Also, with LT being injured, San Diego may pass the ball more than usual.
