Yahoo Weekly Projections

First off, I love Kubiak! I was able to get 2 of the top 5 rated players, 6 in the top 20 and 10 in the top 50. I am going to the playoffs, just like the other 2 years I used Kubiak.

For those of you who use Yahoo.com for your league, how much credence do you give to their projected points?

I have 4 running backs and need to play 2. I don't remember the round but I remember the order drafted.
1) Rashard Mendenhall. Second round pick, highly rated.
2) Matt Forte. Good value pick in the 6th round.
3) Beanie Wells. Drafted for 2 reasons. Good value and Alan Fanaca (When he went to NY Jets, I heard a NFL radio analyst say whenever a lineman goes from a top 10 rushing team, to someone else, the team he left remains a top 10 running team, the team he goes to becomes a top 10 rushing team. I heard this in 2008 and drafted Thomas Jones in the 8th round. He only led the AFC in rushing)
4) Ahmad Bradshaw. He is the Giants starter and was available in a very late round.

I have 5 receivers (In this league we can play 3 WR or 2 WR and 1 TE).
1) DeSean Jackson
2) Steve Smith CAR
3) Hines Ward
4) Johnny Knox
5) Jason Whitten

In both RB and receiver roles, Yahoo has the last player drafted at the position as filling in the last slot.

Would you start based on pick number or projections?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Matchups might play a role in who you start at your third positions but you probably would play your first and second drafted guys at RB and WR since you paid good money for them.

You didnt use yahoos board to pick your team why would you let them pick your lineup? Forte was the second back you picked and he has one of the better matchups hes going to have all season. He has to start. Id go with steve smith too
