Needed your opinion - Fantasy Football related

I have a critical game this Sunday/Monday. In my league, we have three-way ties and we MUST win.

I'm not sure which QB I should start:

Culpepper
Pennington
Brees

Vikings will play against #1 defense Miami, Jets faces Patroits, and Chargers against Chiefs.

Which will you pick?

Thanks.

Not Brees. He seems to be on a short leash the past couple weeks. It will be interesting to see how the Jets come out, since they are pretty much eliminated from the playoffs after last week. Vikings have been eliminated seemingly forever and Culpepper has been great lately anyway. Everyone in Minnesota is playing for a job next season, so I would ride Culpepper even against Miami.

Culpepper. Miami is not a good road team.

That's true, Miami does not play well in the cold.


I would go with Brees, any QB could do well against the Chiefs, but you don't know whether him or Flutie will start. As for Culpepper, Miami shut down Gannon, what do you think they are going to do against a team like Minnesota. Go with pennington, the jets will come back strong after a dismal effort last week and this kid still wants to prove he's the QB of the future. Also, I know the Vikings play in the Metrodome, it was a joke.

That was in Miami. Miami's D is Jeckyll & Hyde when it comes to location...

Miami D PA/game at home = 10.3
Miami D PA/game on the road = 26.3

Spaceboy - I would lean towards Bulger too. Neither of those defenses are good against the pass, but Miami has such a good running game, they only throw to complement the run. I also heard Faulk is out, which means the RAMS will be throwing the ball more..

I got some ?s for your guys. Who do I start instead of Priest Holmes?

I can start of the following 3(along side Clinton Portis):
Leon Johnson(Bears) @ Carolina
Mike Cloud(Chiefs) vs. San Diego
Mike Pittman(Tampa) vs. Pittsburg (can be got off waivers)

Also, for QBs(start 1):
Matt Hasselback vs. St. Loius
Jon Kitna vs. New Orleans
Brian Griese vs. Oakland
J. Freeley vs. Dallas (can be got off waivers)


Personally, I'm leaning towards Johnson + Hasselback, but I'm unsure. Any suggestions??

Same question here, the league allows two running backs. I have Travis Henry starting at one back, here are my choices for the second:

Kenny Watson or Ladell Betts from Washington (may split carries)
Mike Cloud from KC
Michael Pittman and Mike Alstott are available on the waiver wire

Thanks in advance!

I'd probably go with Cloud.
