I know how I would answer this question, start your studs, but am going to ask it anyway, since I am struggling with 2 losses in a row and am now 3-2.

Have Sproles and MJD on bye this week and my prognostication is poor for a victory. I've scrambled and the Team Analyzer says that I am a 0.76 pt underdog, so whats the problem. The Team Analyzer starts Big Ben with 28.4 points vs TN instead of Brady with 21.4 vs Seahawks.

Not sure I am going to sit Brady unless it is the only way that I can win. What say you? Do I need the 7 points to have any chance to win?

I play Ben all of the way. Tennesee's pass defense is awful. Most of Brady's offensive pass weapons are banged up.

If I had Brady and Big Ben, I would play Brady every week over Big Ben including this week but thats just me. Seattle has a fantastic pass D but I still expect Brady to put up numbers.

Roll with Big Ben Brady is playing with a much more balanced team.

One way to look at it is your two recent loses have come with Brady as your starting QB.



We saw what Seattle did to Rodgers.....and the game is in Seattle.



After two loses I would change things up and start Big Ben.

SEA Pass D is strong. And while 3 of 5 Seattle games have been against struggling passing teams ARI, STL, and CAR, those have been on the ROAD. At HOME SEA has hosted DAL and GB and shut down both teams passing games . . . No huddle/audible based offense is very hard to run on a Sunday afternoon at the CLink. I would bench Brady and play Big Ben . . .

Started Big Ben and got 23.92 points which is 5 points less than the LA projected for him. May still be a better start than Brady against the Seahawks D, we will see. Also started Wallace and Britt who out performed projections, so looks like it was an OK night.

Should have taken my own advice and started my stud, Brady. Left 5 points on the bench, which I am going to probably need. I am up 12 with Dreessen to play and he has Thomas. Not sure I like my odds, but am still breathing. It would have been great if I could have eeked out a win with my two best RB's both on byes this week.
