I have my roster set for the championship but have a shaky flex play trying to decide between Jeremy Maclin playing tonight projected 14.7 points on ESPN. Vick Ballard is facing the Texans D and is projected 6.8 points. I initially thought Ballard was the safer play but now I'm having second thoughts. It is not a PPR league.

Non ppr and they have Maclin that high and Ballard that low? I don;t like facing HOU run defense but I still like Ballard more.

Well Maclin didn't get the TD that would have made the play so sweet. The fumble hurt. He got me a 6.30. I'll take it from my 3rd WR. Wish I had got a couple more but it is what it is. Not the .7 I got from Myers last week. AP/Martin. I live or die with them. 14 was an insane projection. Ballard is about right. Who did you play? Lablue I'm back to debating Ballard/Owens lol. Ballard is in there now.

Ballard and Owens is like Maclin and SMith to me. Close but I have made my picks on both.

I benched Maclin. Now I'm trying to decide between Vick Ballard or Joique Bell. Any thoughts? Ballard projected 6.8 @ HOU, Bell projected 14.7 @ ARI.

I did a sit start comparison on Fantasy Pros and the expert pick is Ballard 82% and Bell 18%. I haven't seen the Lions play much this year, how many guys is he splitting carries with?

I've got the championship and $900 on the line, I would appreciate any help.

I like Ballard. Leshoure will get as many touches as Bell. Ballard should get close to all of the RB touches for Indy. Does not mean he will score more but I like the guy getting all the touches.

I never really used that fantasy pro site. Last week it said 81 Ballard 19 Owens. So I did Ballard/Williams. It said 61% Williams 39% Ballard. They about nailed that one perfectly. This week I am convinced,despite Ballards week opponent, that Williams is the play. I haven't even really debated it. Might go see what that site says again but I am sure it is Williams after that game.

And wonder what the over/under for Yards was last week on Ballard? No way anyone would have bet he got 100 yards. I know he was at 103,then 97, and wound up with 105. Would have been a crazy bet to have. No Td but a solid play against a very tough Houston run D. Bell got a lot of people. He was used all over. Including in the other semi final game. By the guy who lost by 2. Ouch. With Wells on the bench. What a crazy game.
