I'm headed to the championship, but I have a problem. Eli has been my QB all year since Romo got hurt, My opponent has OBJ.
My backup QB is Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has played well in recent weeks and faces Dallas.
Now, normally I wouldn't even consider this, but OBJ is the only person Eli connects with.
As I see it, I can play Eli in the hopes he and OBJ essentially cancel each other out. Or I can sit Eli against a great Panthers Defense.
My receivers and TE have carried my team, and I have okay RB's if Stewart isn't hurt and Ellington can't play next week. I could start a third receiver and not lose anything, but those guys are so up and down, Hilton and Cobb. I'd rather risk losing out on a huge game by Hilton and get the solid 12-15 from a RB and hope hopkins, Robinson, and Gronk do their thing.
I'm leaning towards starting Eli because if nothing else, we'll be throwing a bunch, and just hope Harris and Randle get more touches.
