View Full Version : Safe to roll with Sage Monday night?

I have a tough decision to make at QB with one of the last playoff spots on the line.

I have a deep team at RB (ADP and CJ3, along with Neon Leon) and am strong at WR, TE, and DEF. My biggest weakness all year long has been quarterback. I drafted RB-RB-WR-WR and went for a QB much later as the Big Four were gone before I had a shot at them at the appropriate draft position. I wound up taking Eli in the late middle rounds because I thought my strengths elsewhere would offset my average QB play.

Eli's been solid but unspectacular. Though he's playing great right now and has posted really good numbers three or four times this season, he's usually good for about 200 yds and a touchdown. (Btw, I lost the one time I benched him because I plugged JT O'Sullivan into my lineup, who got benched at halftime by Mike Singletary).

So, should I stick with Eli @ Washington, or do I play Sage at home?

1 pt/20yds passing, 6 pts/PassTD, -2 pts INTs and fumbles lost.

Can Sheli do the Rosencopter? Hell no... go with Eli...

I'm leaning to Eli because he's a safe play. However, the Redskins are really tough against the pass and the Giants will probably have Brandon Jacobs back for this game. Eli is capable of doing damage through the air but Coughlin prefers to control the game with a dominating rushing attack, so Lil Bro probably won't throw it much Sunday.

Sage is a got damn turnover machine but he also should be able to throw for 250+ yds against the Jags without much problem.

Also, my opponent has Walter starting, so I could offset most of Walter's production by starting Sage. Something to consider...
