Bye week blues... who to lose...

Postby adamh » Wed Oct 07, 2009 1:28 pm

12 team standard H2H w/ 0.5 PPR

QB Rivers
WR Andre Johnson
WR Jennings (Nate Washington filling in for bye week)
WR Welker
RB Leon Washington
RB Rashard Mendenhall
TE Gates
W/R Anyone listed below

Ive got Rivers, Gates and Jennings on bye this week, so I need to drop 2 of these guys below:

RB Lendale
RB Jamaal Charles
RB Shonn Greene
RB Mewelde Moore

I honestly think LJ is pretty useless to me at this point. He gets my first vote. Id rather keep someone around that could be very useful later than an LJ that will run for 50 yards a week with no scores. As for the other guys, Im trying to hang on to the high upside guys. If any of them pan out, my team will be stacked. Any advice on the two I should drop this week?

And while were at it, pick a replacement QB for this week:

Cassel v Dal
S Hill v Atl
Boller v Min
Wallace/Hasselbeck v Jax
Collins v Indy
Sanchez v Mia
13 team 5x5 auction keeper
C Hundley $1
1B Pujols $22
2B Espinosa $1
SS Tulo $39
3B Donaldson $22
MI Russell $1
CI Arenado $11
OF Bautista $39
OF Gomez $17
OF Marte $11
OF Polanco $3
OF Pollock $8
U Gallo $1

9 P's - Harvey $3
Cole $6
Liriano $3
Fiers $8
Syndergaard $1
Wada $1
Happ $1
K Jansen $3
Soria $1
Storen $12
Carson Smith $1
W Davis $1

14 team, 6x6 (OPS and K/BB added) H2H


C Wilin Rosario
1B Chris Davis
2B Kolten Wong
3B Manny Machado
SS Ian Desmond
OF Bryce Harper
OF Adam Jones
OF AJ Pollock
U Kyle Seager
U Trevor Plouffe

B Carlos Correa

Pitchers (start 3 SP, 2 RP, 2 P)
SP Sonny Gray
SP Carlos Martinez
SP Wei-Yin Chen
SP Archie Bradley
SP Yordano Ventura
SP Drew Hutchison
SP Mike Bolsinger
SP Mike Foltynewicz

I'd probably cut Shonn Greene and either Mewelde Moore or Jamaal Charles, whichever you hate more, instead of LJ. I know you'd like to keep your high upside guys, but Greene is behind two guys on the depth chart and Johnson, despite his struggles, is still a starting RB. It'd be foolish to just cut him. If MeMo didn't get a lot of touches last week with Parker out, then he's probably not looking at very many going forward. As for the QB to pick up, I'd probably go with Hill vs. ATL. He's at home against pretty crappy pass defense and he's had 2 TD passes in back to back games.
C - M. Montero
1B - Encarnacion
2B - Uggla
SS - Zobrist
3B - Wright
OF - Braun
OF - Gordon
OF - Fowler
UT - Swisher
UT - Mclouth
BN - SS Crawford, Schierzholtz

SP - Bumgarner, Scherzer, Shields, Samardzija, Harvey, Maholm, Villanueva, Cashner
RP - Wilhelmsen, Perkins, Cishek (Fujikawa)

Lendale is the goal-line back on a very bad team. Unless Chris Johnson goes down he has little value.

LJ has two or three decent matchups coming and you know he will get the ball so look at which matchups you think those are and see what the rest of your team looks like those weeks. You may have guys on bye that week and he could be a good option.
