Is it possible to always, and I mean I always, sit your best WR, week in, week out?

I probably have had the best roster of receivers this season, but I never know which one of them is an "automatic" start other than Andre Johnson.

At least I won, yes, but it just breaks my being to leave unnecessary points on my bench because I overthought the intangibles.

Sidney Rice and Sims-Walker and Steve Smith and DeSean would be never-bench WRs on other teams, but when you can only choose 1 of them, well, you see how it can be nerve-wracking to "guess" which one of them will "most likely" have the best day.

choosing who to start and who to bench is tough and it really comes down to two things. 1) who's the matchup against and what strategy for that team to win is gonna be used (i.e. run or pass) and 2) who are the other players on that persons team.

for instance, I played miles austin, felix jones, and marion barber last night and between the 3 of them, I think I got 10 points. I didn't pay enough attention to hear that jones is no longer doing returns. that hurt.

No, I was looking for the standings of the league this thread pertains to. I was only in the other league or I would know the results from this one.

Thanks Jet, looks like you really came on in the playoffs when it counted after some tough luck during the season. 2nd in points with only a slightly over .500 win % seems unlikely. Congrats.

But that's the way it happened. I was less than 9 points from the points leader in week 12, even though dksuddeth had 5 or 6 wins over my team.

I had the same problem in this league that you perhaps witnessed in the mainstay TFP league I also happened to participate in (and win): I left a lot of points on my bench because, in essence, I had too many 'good players' on it, and overthought who to start when.

I can barely count the numerous times I left 20+ and 30+ point explosions by Ricky Williams, Steve Smith, Brett Favre, Jonathan Stewart, Jamaal Charles, Sideny Rice, and especially DeSean Jackson etc.

For example, I only played DeSean Jackson a total of maybe 4-5 times in this league, even though he had a Pro-Bowl caliber season, because, well, I thought for the longest time he was only a home-run threat, and couldn't maintain his lucky streak of 50+ TD strikes when he only averaged around 5 offensive touches per game. Then, when I got over that thought for a second, he gives me a big fat ZERO in points when I thought I could count on him (the Tampa Bay game). Additionally, I had what seemed like much better options at WR with Steve Smith catching around 9 balls per game, Sims-Walker having his best days when playing at home, and Sidney Rice becoming this year's second-best 3+ year breakout receiver (behind Miles Austin). Besides, Andre Johnson, who never came out of my line-up, I could only choose 1 amongst 4 quality receivers each week, most often times.

So, it gets to be bad breaks of line-up shuffling, when in actuality, the team is doing extremely well as a whole, that sinks the overall winning percentage.
