While it seems obvious that if a region of your country is under invasion and occupation from a foreign power you should mobilize your army to defend it. However, full mobilization in Ukraine is tantamount to a declaration of war. If Parliament obliges, Russian troops will undoubtedly move in to "pr...

Frank Gore vs. Seattle
Joique Bell @ Philly
Also, would you consider starting Cecil Shorts (vs. Houston) over Jordy Nelson (vs. Atlanta) this week? I can't afford another 3 point performance from what used to be one of my most dependable players.

4 pt TDs
My mind says that Luck, playing against Denver, will have to chuck it like Romo did a few weeks back. However, my gut tells me that the Colts are going to stick to their mediocre running game and that Foles will have another big day.
What do you think? ...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to start at Flex: Gio Bernard or Hartline - TigerPride10 on 9/22/13 at 6:58 am|
Bernard vs. Green Bay
Hartline vs. Atlanta
Bernard has more upside, but I worry that he won't bust the big plays like he did last week. He's still not getting the touches that the Law Firm gets for whatever reason. Hartline will most likely pull in 15 points against a weak Atlanta ...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Flex Options: Gio, Gordon, or Hartline - TigerPride10 on 9/18/13 at 10:53 pm|
PPR 12 team league
I tentatively have Brian Hartline starting at the Flex against Atlanta. Even if Wallace has another great game, Hartline should be able to put up between 10-15 against a very weak pass defense.
Other options include
Giovani Bernard vs. Green Bay
Josh Gordon at Minnesota
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Starting Hartline over Shorts at flex - TigerPride10 on 9/17/13 at 8:31 am|
I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on this move this week. The Jags are playing Seattle and I don't see their offense doing anything.
I also have Gio and Gordon on the bench. I want to see consistency from the former and I don't trust the QB situation enough in Cleveland to sta...

Disclaimer: For those who read a thread of mine yesterday regarding Edelman, I wasn't able to get him on waivers. I decided to leave Shorts at the Flex over Bell and Hartline.
It's already a gamble to play him in the hopes that Henne can find him more often, but this groin injury has me questioni...

I currently have the Bucs and Ravens. The former put up 14 points for me this week, but will be hosting New Orleans in Week 2. There are potential points in intercepting Brees a few times, but there's also the potential that they get lit up. The Ravens are playing Cleveland in Week 2, and I'm going ...

I drafted Baltimore's D, but luckily picked up and started Tampa for this week. I'm hoping they dominate the Jets like they are supposed to.
With that said, I was planning on starting the Ravens for the rest of the season, but today's performance has me scratching my head. Is this game more of a ...
