    Fantasy Advice

    I am wondering if any of you have some good fantasy football advice for me. I am currently sitting 3rd in my league ... 4 teams make the playoffs.

    Anyways, I have a dilemma this week. The guy I am playing is starting Rice AND Harvin. I have both Philip Rivers and Brett Favre at QB. Both QB's are projected to have good days, but with the other guy playing both Rice and Harvin is it smarter to start Favre and tie my success to the guy I'm playing, or start Rivers and keep it separate? I am also starting Shiancoe, which throws another wrinkle in the game. Any advice would be great!

    P.S. QB's in our league get 1 pt for every 25 yards and 4 pts for a TD .... WR's get 1 pt for every 10 yards and 6 pts for a TD.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would start rivers, if Farve throws 5 tds you get 20pts but if Harvin and Rice catch them your opponent gets 30 plus the yardage disparity.

    That is the way I have been leaning as well. I appreciate your advice!

    I guess I forgot to add that I am starting Shiancoe as well. So if Favre throws a TD to Shiancoe I get pts for both of them.

    I always say start the guy who you think will have the best game regardless of who your opponent is starting.

    Sure, maybe Favre throws 5 TDs all to Sidney Rice. That would be a bummer for your fantasy team. But if Rivers only has 2 TDs, you're still better of with Farvay.

    Thank you for your advice ... I'm just torn as to who will have the best week.

    Tough Choice. Hard to bench either of them. I may have to give the edge to Rivers only because I do think Farve will have a decent game but IF AD keeps up his history of runing all over he Bears then that will cut into his points and may lead to Farve sitting again if they get a big lead like last week. Which is very possible.

    That is good advice ... I think I am going to go with Rivers this week. Thank you (everyone) for your help.
