For those of you who detest fantasy football discussions on a football site, just stop reading now. For those of you who enjoy the sport of nerd kings, read on, because I need your help.I have quite the matchup problems in the APC league this week. In the interest of brevity, I'll list who I have at the skill positions, their matchups, and then elaborate on why I'm so troubled.
HB: Clinton Portis (questionable) @ Detroit, Brian Westbrook (questionable) and LeSean McCoy vs. Kansas City, Derrick Ward (starting for the injured Cadillac Williams) vs. NY Giants, Ricky Williams @ San Diego
I have to start 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, with one flex spot. So the first thing to do is figure out whether I need 2 RB and 2 WR or 1 RB and 3 WR. Then it gets tricky.
Not only do I have to choose between Flacco vs. Cleveland and Schaub vs. Jacksonville (two teams that suck), I've got the perpetually questionable Brian Westbrook AND LeSean McCoy against KC, a terrible defense. Which one do I start? Do I start both of them? That would mean taking Clinton Portis away from a matchup against Detroit. But Portis is injured as well!
Then Randy Moss has this random back injury, making me think it might be a good idea to start two RBs instead. But do I really want to bench Moss when New England is going to want to make a statement against the somewhat vulnerable Falcons after being handled by the Jets? Or is Tom Brady still getting settled back in under center?
For now, my starters are Flacco, Portis, Moss, A. Johnson, and Knox. Help!
