Peyton Manning v OAK

Ryan Fitzpatrick v NE

Stevan Ridley @ BUF

Matt Forte @ DAL

Steven Jackson v SEA

Ahmad Bradshaw @ PHI

Andre Brown @ PHI

David Wilson @ PHI

LaGarrette Blount v WAS

Ronnie Hillman v OAK

Dwayne Bowe v SD

Victor Cruz @ PHI

Nate Washington @ HOU

Jon Baldwin v SD

Jimmy Graham @ GB

Bears @ DAL

Jason Hanson v MIN

I can play 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR, 1 TE, 1D and 1K

.5 ppr, Points slightly favor QB, then RB, then WR.

I'm liking Peyton at QB and Ridley at 1 RB slot.

Now it gets messy...Bradshaw is starting, do I play him or possibly play both he and Brown, especially since St. Jackson and Forte both will be significantly limited? If I played Ridley and both Giants RBs, then my two WRs would likely be Bowe and Cruz. Now that would give me 3 NY Giants. Should I just play Bradshaw and Ridley at RB, Bowe and Cruz at WR, and then either Nate Washington or Jon Baldwin at flex or even roll the dice with Jackson or Forte at flex?

This is perhaps the most confusing e-mail I have ever read on the forum. You are overthinking it.

In a situation like the one you are in and if your are not sure, play your stud players and don't worry about the matchups. You have several players on your team that are injured. There is no way of knowing who to start until you check the active/inactive status of those players before kickoff.

I am playing three Giants on one of my teams tomorrow. Don't let that stop you.

Robert, just an observation about why you may not get as many answers as you would like. If you posted the qb's on one line, rb's on a line, (you get the idea) your post woud be short and concise. As you posted it, it does not all fit on the screen and requires scrolling up and down to read it and make the decision. Just confusing to read and hard to determine who you have. Please accept this as constructive as it is intended.

There could be worse teams you roll with when starting 3 players from that team. I would look at starting

QB: Manning

RB: Ridley, Bradshaw

WR: Cruz, Bowe

TE: Graham

Flex: Brown

Not sure I want to take a chance with Forte on Monday or S Jackson nursing a groin vs SEA.
