NFL Week 16: "Ask the Docs" Replies
Friday, December 19, 2014
Let's do it one more time with feeling. This week is championship week for most fantasy leagues. Congratulations to you and your team if you still have something on the line. You had some great questions this week, and it was easy to see that you are making some tough choices. Thanks for a great season. Good luck this weekend, and enjoy the Week 16 mailbag.
Week 16 scheduling throws us a few Saturday matchups. If my decision making wasn't difficult enough already, now I have to make a flex call on Saturday in advance of knowing whether or not Julio Jones will play on Sunday. The dilemma, start Antonio Gates (Sat game) with Chargers down a top receiver in my flex spot over Harry Douglas, who with Jones and White playing becomes very mediocre? While I'm here I may as well ask, Rivers or Sanchez?
- Bill @ Facebook
Easy question first. Sanchez over Rivers. Rivers is dinged up, and Sanchez has a good matchup. It is tempting, but you have to go with Gates in this situation. He is such a threat to score TDs that you can't take the risk on Douglas.
In a dilemma, do I start Stafford at Chicago, or Roethlisberger vs. KC? Brees smacked the bears, but Ben is performing. Thanks
- Spencer @ Twitter
Big Ben is performing, but Stafford has a great matchup against a Bears team that is imploding. Start Stafford.
If De Marco sits. Who is best sub? I have Randle, Herron, Pierre Thomas available. Champ Game.
- Carlotex @ Twitter
You will have to watch closely, but if Murray sits, Randle will be your best option.
Finals!! Pick 3 Foster/CJ Anderson/Bell/Shady. Kelce or J.Thom.. And Pats d or lions d.. Thanks
Lions D over Patriots D. Two Words, "Jimmy Clausen." Julius Thomas over Kelce. Le'Veon Bell, Foster, and Anderson.
please help! Start 1 RB: Jennings/Williams, L Miller, or Kerwynn Williams? Also, 1 WR: S Smith, S Watkins or Moncrief?
- Brian @ Twitter
Keep Checking, but it looks like Jennings will miss this week. Andre Williams should be a solid start, but Miller is the choice for starting this week. At WR, Steve Smith is your guy. Watkins has cooled off lately.
what two do i start roddy white colston e saunders
- D.P. @ Twitter
This is a close one and it is hard to believe, but White is your guy. With Julio Jones banged up, White should perform.
That's a wrap this week. Great interacting with everyone and good luck to everyone's teams this week. If you haven't yet, be sure to check out our FootballDocs' Social Media pages and send us your fantasy football question:
