Jason Campbell...Yes the Jason Campbell

Warning: this is a complete brag post.

As I mentioned in a previous blog post I’m in 3 fantasy football leagues. While I’ve hated being in 3 separate leagues I’ve done well in each of them. For those that play fantasy football you know how high variance all 3 can be, I’ve had some good luck this year and am in the semis of all three of my leagues. I typically have success in fantasy football but this year I’ve been fortunate that most of the guys I stayed away from were busts and the players I was high on did really well so I got really lucky in that regard.

One of my main rules is to never draft or spend too much on a QB in an auction. I’ve never picked a QB earlier than the 5th round and have never spent more than $3 on a QB in an auction. Sometimes this works (see Jay Cutler 2008) and sometimes it doesn’t (See Jay Cutler 09). When it doesn’t you have to inevitably end up scrambling for a QB, enter Jason Campbell. He’s going to be my starting QB in all 3 leagues this week. He’s not very good but has been playing well lately and has a good match up this week, home against the Giants. Also, while this didn’t effect my decision making he’s playing on Monday Night Football which is always fun as a fantasy owner.

Since I’m not sure if this will ever happen again, here are my starting line-ups going into the semis.

Redraft league, 12 teams TD Heavy

QB Campbell
RB Jones-Drew, C. Johnson
WR Ocho Cinco, Gates, Bowe or Harvin
K Akers
D Seattle

Auction league 12 teams, PPR (start any combo of 5RB/WR)

QB Campbell
RB Gore
WR Desean Jackson, Moss, Welker, A. Johnson
TE Winslow or F. Davis
K Kaeding
D Philly

Redraft league, DC league 12 teams PPR

QB Campbell
RB Rice, Gore
WR S. Smith (NYG), Colston
Flex S. Rice, R. Grant
K Stover

Campbell has been much better since Jim Zorn gave up the play-calling duties. Also, the Giants D is no longer a powerhouse.

I assume you're starting Harvin if he's playing, otherwise Bowe. I like Davis over Winslow...and just in case you somehow don't know, S. Rice is Que with some mystery illness.

Yeah thanks. unfortunately my Harvin/Bowe league is an old school league and line-ups have to be in by 1 so I think I'm gonna play it safe and start Bowe.

Gonna go with Davis for sure and if Rice can't play probably Davone Bess since it's a PPR league. Maybe I'll pick up the Chicago WR, too lazy to spell his name or Devin Thomas.
