    Sacks 2, Int. 2,

    Brees vs. Ari (best pass d)
    Stafford vs. NYG (top 5 pass d and hurt his finger on throwing hand)

    J. Jones vs. SF (might not play)
    Tyrell Williams vs. Oak
    Rishard Mathews vs. KC (KC given up 5th most points to WR)
    J.j. Nelson vs. NO (Floyd gone, bigger role perhaps)

    L Bell vs. Cin

    F. Gore vs. Min (Tough match up vs. Min D away)
    D. Booker vs. NE
    M. Ingram vs. Ari

    Steve Smith Sr. vs. Phi

    Oak D vs. SD

    Great team...Bree's, Williams & JJ,Bell, Howard, Kielce, Atl Def Jones has been limited all week and is to much of a risk imo. McKinnon has had two good weeks in a row and plays at home vs a terrible run def. however if this is ppr Dixon is a great option in your last spot.

    It's non ppr, so you'd start McKinnon over Gore?

    Yes Minn run def vs Indy. Plus the last five weeks Ind is 12th vs the run and Minn is 22nd. You have a safe team and really don't need to gamble imo. If you're looking for the safe floor go with Gore. What does your opp lineup look like?

    A part of me wants to start Rishard Mathews over Gore based on match up. Even J.J. Nelson plays NO. Which sounds favorable. Agree on the floor of Gore. His 12 Pt. Per game is dependent of touchdowns, doesn't get many yards usually.

    He's starting T. Taylor, Jordy Nelson, Demarius Thomas, Lamar Miller, Kenneth Farrow, G. Olsen, Crabtree, Vinatieri, NE defense

    I have Mathews and won't start him. He will be squaring off vs KC best pass defender. He shuts down his opp.

    I think you are fine with your game you have your opp beat at every position. Go with Gore and the floor and be safe....or be like me and gamble a bit with McKinnon or Dixon who have better matchups. Gore is the safe play though.

    I was shocked to see KC giving up so many points to WR this year. Thought Marcus Peters was struggling. Thanks.

    I'll have to think about it, thanks. Dixon plays Phili. But ravens starting to roll.

    Just read this and thought about your choices...

    "If Michael Thomas and Max Unger are out and Tyrann Mathieu returns for Arizona, I can't see any way I'd play Brees. If all three go the other way he's a borderline top-five option. In other words, you really need to check out QB rankings on Sunday morning."

    Personally, Brees @ AZ in the playoffs is too spooky for me, so I am glad I don't have to make the final call.

    Good Luck!

    Tough call indeed but sitting Brees over Stafford? No chance for me if I'm going to lose at QB its gonna be with my top guy. I like rolling the dice at the other positions but not when you have a guy like Brees who will put up his 15 pts floor in this game. Stafford is hurt, has no running game, and is on the road outside. Tough call for sure but for me I'm going down with Brees not stafford esp in daily. Now for DFS...totally with you no way Brees sniffs any of my lineups there this weekend...I don't think we are helping 1loyal:)

    LOL Right!!!

    I think I'd look to see what's available. He listed Dalton. I like Dalton over Brees or Matt.

    Along those same lines, Ben vs. Rivers?

    If I win next two games, pot would be around $700.

    Julio is now out. I'm double dipping on Rivers not having two bad games in a row and have picked up Inman. Thinking about picking up Dixon and starting him over Gore if three starting lineman will be out, dropping Miami D. Have to keep eye on Unger, if he doesn't play I'm thinking flacco over dalton. He's played well.

    With All Day back looks like McKinnon is out. Rivers will be throwing it all over I do like him and Inman.
