You drafted your team. The experts predict your whole team is going to go off and get you the most fantasy points ever scored in one game in the history of fantasy football. Everything looks great except…. You think C.J. Spiller is going to have a bad game against the Patriots and you want to start Lamar Miller instead. You see all the stats and are looking at all the projections, but you just think that C.J. is going to have a hard time going against the Pats defense. Your friends and experts are telling you to go with Spiller, but you have that gut feeling. The problem is that you are too afraid to go against what everyone else is telling you and you are too afraid to listen to yourself.
I have Denver’s defense. I have a stud bench and I didn’t want to get ride of anyone. I am projected to win by 6 if I keep Denver in. Most people wouldn’t have any issues and would let this team ride, but I just have that nagging feeling that the Ravens are going to put up some points on a banged up Denver defense. There are a lot of people who have a lot to prove this game, but the returning Super Bowl Champs playing in enemy territory for their season opener that was supposed to be in Baltimore have the most to prove. I don’t like the fact that if I kept the Broncos in, anytime Ray Rice would score would minimize my chances for scoring. I previously dropped Andre Brown for Knowshon Moreno last week, so I decided that Moreno would hit the waiver wire again so I could pick up the Bucs defense. Geno Smith is starting and this will be Revis’ chance to prove to the Jets that they made a mistake. I am probably going to drop the Bucs defense in week two and try to get Moreno back, but while this move only increased my projection total by 2 points, I think this move might have just helped me win the game.
