    This is my money league, so I need to be smart. I have two questions:

    1: QB - Roethlisberger or Alex Smith?
    Big Ben is playing against the #1 pass defense in fantasy football, the Browns (that was a weird sentence to type). Smith is playing against Arizona, who he put up 267 yds and 2 TD's against 3 weeks ago. I am leaning towards Smith here - not because I think he is a better QB, but because he has a better matchup.

    2: WR - I need to play either Miles Austin or Laurant Robinson, but not both. Which guy would you play?

    How badly do you need points? Are you strong in other areas? This one will come down to how much you are willing to gamble. Smith is the safer pick, but Roethlisberger offers the biggest reward. The Cleveland defense can be passed on. Andy Dalton put up 270 on them two weeks ago. Plus I like the Steelers chances with Mike Wallace in the lineup.

    Personally, I think Ben is the better play, but if you feel like you don't have room to gamble and want to take sure points, then go with Alex.
