    Hey all,

    Here's my starting lineup as well as benched players. I'm still not sure about benching L.T. and Anquan Boldin over Zach Miller and Keiland Williams, but given Pittsburgh's secondary and how they struggle against pass plays and the fact that Ryan Torain and Clinton Portis will most likely remain injured, I can't overlook those two. Also L.T. has been doing poorly lately (and I expect will this week against a somewhat strong Houston run defense), and Boldin with the Ravens historically struggle against Carolina on passing.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    LT in a heartbeat over any RB for a stinky WAS team.
    I'd still stick with Boldin over Miller specially vs a nasty PIT D.

    Why? When considering not only the player abilities but also the QB's abilities against the opposing defense this week, why would you put L.T. and Boldin in? You may be completely right, but I would like to know the reasoning before doing so.

    Don't mean to hijack (ok well maybe I do) but who do you guys think I should go with out of LeGarrette Blount @ SF and BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs Indy in a ppr league.

    Initially I'm thinking Ellis because of Indy's porous run D but LeGarrette is a wildcard and could bust out at any time.

    Keiland Williams is going to get the bulk load of carries so that's a solid bet and yes Houston's run D is the only redeeming quality about their defense. The secondary is a joke but they should limit the Jets to under 100 yards rushing total. Then again Houston's red zone defense is just as much of a joke as their secondary and if LT can get touches, he's definitely going to score.

    Other than that I would start Boldin over Miller. Miller is coming off injury and he has been pretty much hit or miss this year. Boldin is a much more reliable threat even against Carolina.

    Not this week, he's still in as a starter because just a 12mph speeding ticket doesn't constitute disciplinary action from the team & the BAL was below the legal limit.

    If the police find anything in the urine test though (which will take a few days), he may be missing next week's game.

    schefter is reporting both ways, in all honesty I had no idea what was going on with him anyways. :p Should keep an eye on it tho. If he does not play they will run a lot more I would say.

    Wow.. calm down..

    I would play Boldin and LT. Boldin has been one of the more consistent WRs and LT has droped off a bit but I still think he is a better option then Williams even if Portis does not return. Titan D is very underrated.

    I was never riled up, just said ugh because he admittedly hijacked my thread. That's what new threads are for.

    Thanks for the advice.

    On another note. Torin out, Portis in.

    Skins suck. I wouldn't play anybody on their squad besides McNabb (if even him).
