    Hey all,

    I have the following WR's for this week. I've got Tomlinson in my RB spot and Torain in one of my flex spots, so that leaves one more flex spot and the WR spot.

    Santana Moss
    Deion Branch
    Terrell Owens

    Currently I have Moss and Owens in, but I really don't know if I should have Branch in instead of one of them for the sheer fact that Brady is throwing to him against a less than good Vikings secondary D.

    Moss is going up against Detroit, who hasn't allowed more than roughly 190 yards in the past 3 games on passing (McNabb hasn't thrown for more either), and Owens is going up against Miami.

    Speaking as a Skin man myself its hard to endorse Moss, there's so little consistency out of the WAS passing game. I'd definitely have TO in, he should get decent fantasy numbers, especially if they are trailing in the second half [likely]. So yeah between Branch and Moss, I'd lean wait to see Sunday morning if there is any update on that Branch hammy

    I'm not to concerned about his hamstring injury, as he only pulled it during Wednesday's practice, so it's a no-impact injury. Should heal up just fine by Sunday.

    If so, would you say TO/Branch is the better decision? That's what I was leaning for, but Moss has always done decently well for me. Usually puts up at least 14 points.

    Put it this way, Moss's high is higher and his low is lower. I would not be surprised to see Moss get 18 or 3 points. With Branch I'd expect 8-11

    Dang, now another wrench is thrown in. Somebody in my league just gave up Sproles, who is being given more of a pass play these days. He did 24 points last week, and is expected to do 17 this week. Take him out instead of Moss and put TO in my WR spot, then run 3 RB's? (LT, Torain, and Sproles).

    Get Sproles. Those kick yards can add up. He has not found the end zone this year however. But he's probably a better overall option than Branch or even Moss

    Of course I did :) I went with him, Torain, and Sproles. Torain still did well enough considering he went out at the half (9.5 points the first two quarters), and sproles got me 26 points I believe. I hope Tamme pulls through for me tonight...some sort of score change happened last night and now I'm 6 points under my competition. 4 passes to Tamme should fix that, or a touchdown pass.

    Correct you are. Went out with 15 points on Tamme.
