    Default Fantasy advice

    Should I start Romo or Dalton this week at QB? Romo has played like complete crap the last two weeks (cost me a W last week) and will be home against Chicago. It's hard to predict whether he will play like crap again, or if he'll rise up to the Monday night occasion and finally put together a good fantasy performance. Dalton OTOH has been an absolute fantasy monster these last two weeks and is on the road against Jacksonville. He has a better matchup than Romo, but will he finally come back to earth?

    I hate decisions like this because it always seems like I make the wrong one. I bet that on Tuesday, I'll be kicking myself and saying that I would have won my matchup if only I would have started the other QB instead.

    Go with the hot hand and the better match up.

    The new refs will also be in favor of less contact on the WR's which should help either decision you go with.

    Dalton for sure.

    Jacksonville just isn't very good on D.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll follow it and go with Dalton. Luck as a rookie put up monster fantasy stats against Jax last week, so you have to think that Dalton will too, especially since Cincy has some really nice weapons right now.

    I'm 1-2 right now, so this week really is do or die for me. There is an astronomical difference between being 2-2 versus 1-3. If I'm 1-3 then I'm close to being done, but if I'm 2-2 I'm right in the thick of things.

    I've found an early losing streak isn't too bad because it lets you work the waiver wire/FA and get dibs on the backups being thrust into starting roles, or the surprises who look like they might be hot this season. Then you end up with a stronger team for the stretch run.

    Or should I say that worked out really well. Romo has been pathetic tonight.

    Well, I'm going to ask this exact same question again:

    I'm in a playoff match-up this week. Should I go Dalton or Romo? Dalton is in Philly tonight against an Eagles team that has allowed the second most fantasy points to QB's this year. But they did win this past week. Could they come out with a spark tonight on national TV?

    Romo is home Sunday against Pitt. He's been playing pretty good lately. A major reason for that is Dez Bryant, who has a fractured finger. It does look like Dez is going to give it a go this week, though who knows how effective he will be? Ike Taylor is out for Pitt, so that does make the Steelers less threatening.

    Most of the logic says that I should start Dalton, but my gut tells me Romo for some reason. Manning, Brees, and Ryan have all played on Thursday nights recently and none of them played particularly great. Brees was awful and Manning and Ryan were below their normal fantasy output. Is that a coincidence, or is Thursday night just too quick to play sometimes? That has me somewhat concerned about Dalton. Of course, I'd hate to leave Dalton on my bench tonight and see him score 25-30 points. This is a tough call for me and it's in the most important of weeks.

    That's pretty tough too. Freeman did torch the New Orleans D earlier this year. He had a horrendous completion percentage against the Eagles last week, but did throw a couple of touchdowns. I'd probably go Dalton, but I'm worried about a Thursday night game late in the season. What do you think you're going to do considering you have to decide in a matter of hours? And what do you think about Dalton v. Romo?

    I think for you I would go Dalton. Romo's low seems too low to me.

    I am totally torn between Freeman and Dalton on my end, both seem to get at least 15 points, but I think one is going to put up 30 this week. I'm just trying to decide who. The Saints are much better than they were in the first meeting with Tampa and they could be doing a revenge game after all those suspensions got tossed out.

    At the same time Philly's D still has some talent that could make life miserable if they suddenly play up to potential tonight.

    The Saints have lost three straight games against elite teams in San Francisco, Atlanta, and NYG, so you'd expect them to take out a season's worth of frustration against the Bucs at home. Of course, the Saints just really aren't that good and it's possible that the Bucs put up a ton of points.

    I'd still probably go Dalton in your case.

    You're right that Romo's "low" is terrifyingly "low". You never know when he could have a game like he did against Chicago earlier in the season. Plus Pitt has a lot of pride and is still playing for the playoffs.

    Speaking of fantasy football, remember the conversation before the year about kicker value? How has that turned out?

    Maybe I should bump that thread.

    I can't remember that discussion, but I do know that I picked Lawrence Tynes off of the waiver wire this year and he's been an absolute beast.

    It was essentially about whether or not it makes sense to take a kicker before the last round.

    Obvioulsy, this isn't the case in any way, shape, or form.

    I know someone mentioned that David Akers was worth like a 6th round pick or something. Good times.
