    Default Need help with matchups, sit/start

    Daily starts, there is a season limit and I've been reducing mine over the last two weeks. Would rather have quality starts than quantity here. Main areas of need=goals, not killing my +/-, and good ATOI.
    Team in sig but
    (edit)
    Forwards=Thornton, Elias, St Louis, Steen, Perron Burns(D also), and Bergeron (starting him obv)
    Def=Markov, Tyutin, Josi, Spurgeon, Muzzin (and Burns again)

    Pick 4-5 forwards
    3-4 defense.


    (rest of post from before edit
    Thornton & Burns @ Minnesota
    Elias@FLA=start to me
    St Louis @Ott=would sit but it's Martin St Louis... so start

    Defense:
    Spurgeon @SJ
    Markov vs Buff=start?
    Tyutin @Nsh=either way? i need ATOI and he helps there and usualyl doesn't hurt my team
    Muzzin @ Van=start

    util: Steen@Edm.

    bench=perron@edm
    Roman Josi vs Columbus

    i know this is pretty specific but any good insight is obv rep'd and just trying to get a handle of best starts for the day. Thanks.

    game limits=for season. so 96 starts for the two util spots, 288 for the 6 forward spots, etc. so ideally today I'd want to start 3-4 forwards, 3 defense 1-2 utility.

    Ok, so there's a lot of specific details here that I just don't have time to research each player, but here's my two cents:

    (1) ALWAYS start your best players: St. Lou, Thornton, Bergeron, Markov
    (2) Don't overthink team matchups when you're thinking about forwards or defensemen - with goalies though, it's a bit differennt. FLA sucks, but they just won two in a row, letting in only two goals.
    (3) To fill the rest of the spots, make decisions based on the MOST reliable categories - ATOI, and to a lesser extent +/-. In any one game, goals are not reliable category - unless maybe you have a 40+ goal scorer.
    (4) If you still need any extra help after those three pieces of advice, then ride the hot hand - I believe Muzzin is doing well recently... and as I recall, Burns was very cold most of this season.

    So that leaves me with:

    F - St. Louis, Bergeron, Thornton, Elias (if he's hot recently)
    D - Markov, Burns (I just feel like you gotta start Burns, cause that's why you paid for him)

    Ultimately though, you know your scoring cats best.

    Yeah I wrote/asked way too much but somehow you gave an awesome response haha. Seriously, I appreciate it and am going to set my lineup now. Might throw in one more D-man into util slot just to boost/keep my ATOI but yeah maybe sit Spurgeon Tyutin etc. Gonna just hope I pickt he right guys and play the ones who don't go too negative.

    Thank again, I'll try to be more specific the future.
