Ok it's desperate times for my fantasy team. I'm in second to last place, but I still have a shot at sneaking into the playoffs if I can win these last two games. And with the possibility that my RB core (Lynch, Murray, DMC) could be healthy for the playoffs means if I can sneak in I might actually have as good a chance as anyone.
So the question is, with everything on line this week, which Harbaugh product do I start? Luck has a great match up with the Bills at home. But I'm also pretty happy about picking up Kaepernick as a long shot add last week (had to drop Roethlesberger for someone) and think he could be the key to a late season miracle.
Play Luck at home against the Bills. You wont be sorry. Luck is going to tear them apart, and it should be a fairly high scoring game. Kaep faces a bad NO pass D, but in that dome, in only his 2nd career start? Its going to get real loud, and he hasnt experienced calling plays in that environment. IMO starting Kaep over the veteran Smith this week is a mistake on Harbaugh's part. Its going to be one of those games where a mistake due to inexperience could snowball the Saints momentum.
I would also start Dwyer. He will be getting the majority of the carries with the other RB's banged up, and the Browns arent very good. I dont see Jones being a great option this week.
In a similar situation, if I win the next 2 weeks I am in the playoffs, but now have a decision between Alex Smith, Carson Palmer and Kap. I think I am going with Carson Palmer, just in case I get unlucky with who starts (Alex or Kap).
