NFL Week 17: "Ask the Docs" Replies
Friday, December 26, 2014
Let's do it one more time. This week is yet another championship week for the rest of the fantasy leagues that use week 17 for their title game.
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 17 mailbag.
Looking for start/sit advice for week 17. I need 2 of the 3. Jamaal Charles. Jeremy Hill. Mark Ingram. What do you guys think?
-Tyler via Facebook
Tyler, all three are strong options and you can drive yourself crazy trying to definitively pick two (or eliminate one - depending on how you want to look at it). Reason being: you can't definitively pick two. Having said that, we fully understand you have to start two. With that in mind and if it were us, we would go with Charles and Ingram. We like the balance the two bring relative to your overall starting lineup. Charles is banged up, but we still go with him as it is going to take something epic to keep him out of the game. We couldn't fault anyone electing to go with Hill over Charles or Ingram. Bottom line is that you have the luxury of 3 great RBs this week, and their value tier is essentially the same for week 17. Good luck in whatever your final decision may be. You've done a great job getting those three players on your roster and making it to your title game.
Murray, Asiata, or J Stewart?
-Ryan via Twitter
Splitting hairs here; however, we lean to Asiata. CHI is the #1 most rushing TD friendly over the last 4 weeks and their entire team is imploding.
Thx 2 yall I won my league! Now need help for wk 17 challenge. Start any team u want PPR: QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, Flex, K, & D.

Awesome Brian - congrats! We have our weekly rankings up, so roll with the top players. Good luck & Merry Christmas.
I'm scared to death Romo will be benched this weekend. Which free agent QB would you pick instead: Carr, Orton or Bridgewater?
-Garick via Twitter
We'd still go with Romo. Dallas has an outside shot at a bye + it's a rivalry game + a great match-up. We'd gut it out with Romo.
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:
