Thanks for the feedback.
I am torn between sitting Gore and Marshall (or do I sit Benjamin if Newton doesn't play. . . ?). Gore has been doing well, but I am tempted by all of Marshall's targets (8-12 each game!) and the .5 PPR. Pittsburgh at home is going to be tough, but I don't know if that means they go pass-heavy for 3 quarters, and with Decker out, does that mean 15+ targets for Marshall?
Right now I have Flacco as my starter, but I keep wondering if I am crazy. Last week I sat Ryan (vs CAR) for Flacco and left an additional 15 points on my bench.
I have Denver as my defense and my opponent has Julio Jones, so that is actually pulling my wishes toward a Denver win at home, even though that shouldn't have anything to do with my decision....
Yeah, I was a Gore naysayer for the first 4 games, but he is showing he still has it. This recent one against Jacksonville that I got to watch Sun morning, pushed me over to his side. He still runs with a bit of power.
You make good points about Benjamin and Cam Newton. That might be a good idea if Cam is out.
Marshall didn't get the extra targets last week, but maybe he could this week. I'm not sure. It is certainly tough to sit him.
I think of division games as wildcards. Nothing ever makes sense in those games. Cam Newton should've torn up a poor Falcons defense, and Matt Ryan should have struggled or done average against the Panthers D.
I think a non-division game against a tough defense will make him come back to earth. With that said, I am stuck playing him because Bortles is on bye, so I am hoping for the best.
Just my 2 cents though. I am about 9-7 in all of my leagues combined, so what do I know.
