ESPN standard scoring.  1 pp 25 yards passing, 4 pp passing TD, 6 pp rushing TD. 
Do I start Cam Newton @Saints (22.2- linup analyzer) or Romo @Giants (29.0)?  I'm thinking Cam because the Saints aren't playing for much and he's been money so far, but Romo's playing for the playoffs.  I hate betting on Romo though.
Also, at WR/TE flex, should I start Antonio Brown @Browns (10.8) or Nate Burleson @Packers (10.8)?  I don't know how good Brown can be if Big Ben isn't healthy.    
Thanks guys.  Best of luck today!

I definitely go with Cam here. Romo's hand injury makes this an easy choice to me. If the Saints look up and see the 49ers slaughtering the Rams (which is likely) at halftime do you think they will play really hard in the second half? I don't. Cam is the choice.
Ben is strating and will be playing as ong as the Bengals stay in their game against Cincinnati. If the Ravens lose, the Steelers can take the division and a first round bye by beating hapless Cleveland. I would go with Brown over Burleson.
On any given Sunday any fantasy team can beat another, only to still lose Monday night.

Agreed, Cam is the play here.

I would start Newton as well. Hes been a stud fantasy QB here and Romo having the hand injury makes this decision easier.
