    Does Cutler rank any higher than McCown if Jay is able to play?

    I have some tough choices to make this week. Why do you have Gio Bernard and Woodhead much higher up your list than Stacy and Le'Veon Bell, who are both volume rushers? Just curious to hear your thoughts, as I own all four of those guys.

    In my 0.5pt PPR league, I have to choose two between Woodhead, Bernard, Stacy.

    In my standard league (no PPR), I have to choose two between Woodhead, Bernard, Bell and Mathews. I briefly considered playing both Mathews and Woodhead because I'd be assured any rushing TDs as well as all checkdown work by Rivers, but that could be boneheaded. I really don't know what to do, and the SD-DEN game is tonight.

    I like Bernard for his ceiling but he has so many WTF games and I can't afford that in round 2 of the playoffs.

    I'll have to reevaluate and adjust my rankings, but probably not. I think I'd be inclined to exercise caution with Jay. I'd have no problem playing Marshall, Jeffery (who probably sees more of Haden than Marshall), or even Forte, but with a number of good options at QB this week (love Flacco's matchup), I'd hesitate on Cutler.

    In a standard, Bell feels like a lock. For the other pick, my mentality would lean toward Bernard, but Mathews is probably the better bet to score.

    For my rankings, I account for ppr. I also like upside. Bernard has shown more potential for bigger games than Bell. With Woodhead, it's all about liking the receptions. I probably have Bell a little too low, but it's not the best matchup this week. However, Cincy does give up a decent amount of catches to RBs.

    I see a lot of points in Denver, and with SD throwing, I think Woodhead plays a big role.

    As for Zac Stacy, the Saints have been pretty solid defensively, and with the a Saints nearly assured if scoring 30+ in a dome, I'm not sure he gets the volume or efficiency needed for a big week. Could be way off on that, but that's how I'm leaning.

    On my phone, so I wanted to double-check my rankings.

    I have Woodhead 12 and Bell 15. The Bernard/Woodhead vs Brown/Bell was interesting this week, but I put priority on potential big play capability over volume. And with Woodhead, it's his role in a high scoring game. But the difference between Woodhead and Bell (and Brown) is negligible.

    I tend to agree with you on Stacy. He gets the volume, but I don't expect StL to keep it close which may limit Stacy's production. The Saints haven't given up 100 yards rushing since Week 9 vs NYJ. Stacy is also not involved in the passing game much whatsoever.

    I'm going Bernard-Woodhead in PPR and Bell-Mathews in Standard. I just hope that having one of each of the SD RBs starting for each of my teams doesn't hedge me and screw me over somehow. It always sucks to pick one out of two and get the wrong guy.

    My kryptonite is working perfectly against your team, like it always has, in our all Yankee semi final trumpet.

    Thomas and Moreno getting so few points?? Hope you're starting to sweat... Who on your bench goes off for 30+ points as you over manage your talent and I don't get a combined 30 pts from mine, all the while you're succumbing to my kryptonite?? Just sayin

    Dynasty League Semifinals-

    1. Toxic Avengers (-14) vs. 4. Team Steelnation

    This Turk Division showdown features the division champ Toxic Avengers against Team Steelnation, who finished tied for 2nd in the Turk, one game back. Last week, the Avengers had a bye, while Steelnation eliminated Team Big Gravity (Biggie) 153-131, behind a 31 point effort from Tom Brady, and 30 points from Matt Forte. In week 4, Team Steelnation defeated Toxie by a score of 236-165. If a very veteran Steelnation team hopes to pull off yet another upset vs. Trumpet, they'll need a big effort from the RBs, as well as at least one big performance from the WR corps. Toxie is led by Cam Newton and a strong WR corps. If Eddie Lacy is unlimited vs. Dallas, that will bode well for the Avengers' chances.

    Prediction- Toxic Avengers (-14)


    2. Cleveland Steamers vs. 3. Kaba Modern Forever (-7.5)

    The Cleveland Steamers were the champions of the McConkey division, and are the only team left standing from that division. KMF finished tied for 2nd with Team Steelnation in the Turk Division. Last week, while the Steamers earned a week off, KMF were busy finishing off The Marshall Plan (Rich) 154-123, behind a 34 point effort from Shady McCoy, and a 31 point effort by Josh Gordon. These teams last met in week 4, when the Steamers destroyed KMF 174-103. KMF has gone on to win their last 6, while the Steamers have won 5 of their last 7. In order to advance, the Steamers will need to account for the probable loss of Adrian Peterson. Steven Jackson has a solid matchup, and should fill in nicely if Peterson can't go this week. KMF has some good matchups to look forward to this week, but if MJD can't go (currently listed as DOUBTFUL), there really isn't a suitable backup currently on the roster. This matchup looks to be a toss up, with the owner that best accounts for their team's injuries more likely to come away with a victory, and a chance at a championship next week.

    Prediction- Cleveland Steamers (+7.5)
