Peyton Manning is averaging an absurd 364.9 yards and 3.6 touchdowns per game. He’s on pace for 5,838 yards and 58 touchdowns. He is coming off a bye to face the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers have allowed 275.4 passing yards per game.

4. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford is averaging 327.1 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game. Nobody can stop Calvin Johnson. He’s the Chicago Bears’ problem this week.

    Ryan…i know you’ll be another day or so doing the D/ST rankings this week, but at first glance who do you like between TENN home vs. JVILLE or INDY home vs. ST.L ??? Kinda like’em both, leaning TENN.

    Gotta love the confidence. They are a decent team when they get NFL caliber QB play.

    Confidence? You mean Haden running his mouth giving them bulletin board material before the game? lol He’s lucky it worked out and I meant the Bengals not Pitt. in week 11. But yeah, there D was banshee vs. Flacco/Rice. Games started w/ Weeden 0-4. Campbell/Hoyer 4-1.

    Need some advice. Got serious depth at rb, but need help in a 2qb league. Byes are done and leveon bell will be on my bench rest of the way. Qbs are ryan locker and cutler. Looking to do a bell/ryan deal for either: brady, rivers, romo, or stafford. Im definitely making the playoffs at this point and looking for a late championship push.

    I like Stafford the best of the bunch. I don’t love trading Ryan and Bell for him though. What about one of the other two and Bell for brady, rivers, or romo?

    You like Ryan moving forward over cutler? He’s looked pretty mediocre without any help outside.

  10. LestersLegends
    November 5th, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

    I do. Roddy will be coming back. With Gonzo, Douglas and Rodgers I think he’ll be fine.

    Do you think Dalton was exposed last week? You have Foles at #10, how far down is Dalton on your list?

    Should i give up on Ray Rice? he’s been giving me horrible numbers! I lost week 9 by 2 points. c’mon haha.

    So now that leaves me with – who should i start R.Rice @ CIN, C.Spiller @ PIT, or G.Bernard @BAL? What do u think? I know Rice is due for a blowout game, so should i take the gamble?


  13. LestersLegends
    November 6th, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    DoubleT – About 14. I’d put him behind the guys listed, Locker, Kap, and Eli

  14. LestersLegends
    November 6th, 2013 at 2:42 pm #

    Gabe – I wouldn’t give up on Rice, but I’d start Spiller and Bernard over him

    Ryan, I dropped Sproles and snagged Mike James off FA when the WW cleared this morning. Question…

    RB’s- CJ Spiller @ Pitt, Le’Veon Bell home vs. Buff, and Mike James home vs. Miami on MNF. I have Kennan Allen at my Flex. He’s been money, and is in a nice matchup at home vs. Den. I can’t see sitting him in that game.

    Which 2 RB’s should i start? They are graded out around the same on pretty much every site i’ve been on.

  17. LestersLegends
    November 7th, 2013 at 8:14 am #

    I like Bell and Spiller.

    Despite Buffalo being good vs. the run and Miami being garbage vs. the run? Alright brother, you’re the expert. All 5 guys at nfl.com have James rated highest, and on espn.com those 5 guys have him lowest lol. But they are all close. I’m guessing Spiller will have the least touches, yet he’s the most explosive of the three.

    All are starting caliber choices. Fantasy pros has bell (12), Spiller (16) and James (14). Good problem to have.

    Agree. But i hate making these close decisions more than Antonio Cromartie hates wearing condoms lol.

    Spiller and Bell it is then. Why do i feel no matter who sits, they’ll go off? Been that way all year.

    BTW My buddy in Cali says to sit Cam this week. He said his 9ers are gonna spank the Panthers, and that it won’t even be close. He predicted 30-10 as the final. Yikes. Unfortunately, i can’t sit him regardless. There is NO ONE on the WW worth anything.

    Gotta play Cam.

    November 7th, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

    Blair interesting point you bring about Cam Newton. He is my starter but I also have Big Ben who plays the crummy Bills this weekend. Who is your friend and Ryan do you have input on Cam vs Ben?

  25. LestersLegends
    November 7th, 2013 at 1:48 pm #

    I have Cam ranked 7th.

  26. JC
    November 7th, 2013 at 2:08 pm #

    Haha I know, figured that’d be your answer.. These projections have a tendency to mess with my head and Big Ben has a better projection so I was seeing if I could get you to elaborate. Does Blair have a book maker with inside information lol?

  27. LestersLegends
    November 7th, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    I don’t know what your scoring is, but I like to look at past stats rather than a projection. Cam is averaging 19.64 points per game in my scoring. Ben is at 15.01 (behind Christian Ponder of all people). In the last four weeks Cam (22.86) is even farther ahead (16.39). Ben has just one game over 20 pts. He has 14 turnovers.

    Great point and analysis Ryan. In this particular league it is PPR scoring but the QB also gets a 1/2 point for every completion made. That is the only notable difference.

  29. LestersLegends
    November 7th, 2013 at 3:03 pm #

    In that case it swings a little more to even. I do like Ben’s matchup.

  30. Ryan
    November 7th, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    Cutler or Locker this week given that Cutler is a full go with no restrictions?

  31. LestersLegends
    November 7th, 2013 at 3:28 pm #

    I’d play it safe with Locker.

  32. JC
    November 7th, 2013 at 4:09 pm #

    Interesting Ryan – still unsure if your saying play Cam or Big Ben? By no means am I trying to persuade you to give me an answer one way or the other. Sound like a coin flip, but if you had a gun to you head who are you playing?


  33. LestersLegends
    November 7th, 2013 at 7:07 pm #

    It’s tough when there are different scoring rules. I think Ben completes more passes. I’m sticking with Cam, but it’s a lot closer with that scoring rule

    November 8th, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

    JC- lol no i don’t have a bookie friend in Anaheim. Just a rabid 9ers fan who thinks they are gonna roll Carolina. Easier said than done. Caroilina’s front seven is no joke. They held Wilson to just 7 freaking yards rushing. Seven. I can’t see Kaep doing alot with his legs. Hence i think it’s gonna be a close game. We’ll see.

    Rolling Cam over Ben too BTW. No-brainer.

    I have a hard decision to make by noon sunday. Since Rogers got hurt I dropped him and picked up Foles, to go along with my fantasy backup qb Philip Rivers. Both games offer great things for both qb’s this week. I am an Eagles fan and I’m trying not to let it sway me. If I start Rivers at qb I also have Keenum Allen at WR, so double the points if they td together. But I also have Ertz at TE in case I start Foles. WHAT DO I DO??? WHAT… DO… I… DO…? Thanks for any help, suggestions, opinions u share!

    I have Rivers as my #3 QB this week. He’s been great this year and has a good matchup. He’s likely playing from behind which means lots of passing. Denver has allowed a ton of yard this year.
