    FF lineup help

    Which guy would you start? I've got a R/W/T spot that I normally have Tony Gonzalez at. I'm thinking Greene since it looks like he might be out of his funk now?

    Mario Manningham
    Syndey Rice
    Shonn Greene

    I hope you are kidding. Last week was the exception to the greene suck rule. Do not expect him to do that again. PPR or not?

    Re: FF lineup help

    Neither of those are very good choices. I have a feeling that Greene won't do much this week. New England has a pretty decent run defense and something tells me they are going to try to force Sanchez to beat them with his arm.

    Not to mention Greene was running against the Colts defense last week...

    I don't know, that's why i'm asking for advice. In my league it's 1 point per 10yds and 6 points for TDs. This is my first year doing FF.

    Have you checked out the waiver wire? How many teams are in the league?

    i agree my choices suck. I've been scrambling to try and find a decent WR for bye weeks and this is the best i've been able to come up with. Maybe go with Manningham since SF's pass defense is so good?

    Re: FF lineup help

    I would probably go Rice. If it was a PPR, I might be tempted by Super Mario. He is gaining Smith's confidence and has been getting a lot of targets lately. If it's not a PPR that would be the only way to even consider Greene. But I still think he will go back to being less than mediocre as a fantasy back this week.

    Need to know: PPR or not? What does the rest of your team look like, do you need the home run, or just to play it safe? If you think you need a hail mary to win this week, I'd go Rice. If you just want someone that can give you 6-8 points go Manningham. If you love Hawkeyes, go Greene.

    Re: FF lineup help

    I admit i don't know what PPR means, Points Per Reception? if so then yes

    "10 yards per point; 5 points at 100 yards; 8 points at 150 yards; 10 points at 200 yards"

    the rest of my team is pretty stacked so i'm not too worried, just want to get this last spot filled out.

    Is everyone else in the league a rookie also? Your team should be rolling.

    New England defense has been a disappointment this year. Ole.

    PPR means that for every reception of any yardage you get one point I believe, then each additional 10 yards is another point, and a td is 6.

    Not really. They are 5th against the run when you look at fantasy points.
