Good morning, everyone! I hope you're as excited as I am for another fine day of fantasy football. The action kicks off with eight games at 1:00 p.m. Eastern, and as you know continues all the way through Monday night.

For a fast response, please leave your questions at so it goes right to my phone, which I have a feeling will be on the verge of melting at about Noon.

I'll be answering as many questions as I can for the time being and would like to give some sample questions that I have already received in hopes of helping your team out.


Scott M writes: "Vjax or miles Austin?I've got M. Wallace and colston starting and B.Lloyd on the bench."

Have to go with Vincent Jackson on this one. Any top receiver against the Saints is a must-start (unless it's Greg Little. I can't believe he is considered a top receiver on a team).


Ryan K writes: "Man I really need help on this one. I've been reading your posts about stafford and schaub. Well I have both. And I need to know who would be better to start this week as soon as you possibly can let me know. I have a higher scoring league. Stafford is projected at 48 while schaub at 33. However due to the match ups, I could really use some advice"

Thanks Ryan, I would still go with Stafford over Schaub just due to the fact that the Lions may be playing against a prevent defense in the second half which will pad his stats. Plus, the Lions have a knack for big fourth quarters.


Lyndell M writes: "Sup man . I have marshall vjax and dez starting this week but dez might not play due to injury i have denarius moore on my bench do u think hes a good back up if dez cant go??"

Denarius Moore is a fine fill-in choice for this week since the Raiders will be taking on Jacksonville, but make sure to keep Marshall and Vincent Jackson since they are primed for huge weeks.


Gerald B writes: "Very simple....eli or rg3 as i have both. Eli is the safer bet in my opinion."

I think you could play either one and still get a huge week. But I can't say no to RG3.


Again, very simple, if you need some last-second advice, I'm here to help! Leave a comment below and I will try to get to as many as humanly possible, but the fastest way is at the e-mail above. Good luck in Week 7, everyone!
