Default Week 1 Sit em/Start em thread

So I've got this fantasy team. Normal rules apply and I'm wondering if I should sit one of my two starting runningbacks in favor of Brandon Jacobs. Also, Cooley over Crumpler right?

Here's a screenshot:


What do you guys think?

P.S. I'm thinking this could be a weekly thing during football season, up to you guys.

I would definitely go with Cooley over Crumpler. As far as the RB's go, that's a tough call, the two you have starting have very favorable match ups, that's a tough call, I don't think you can go wrong either way.

I would go with Jacobs. He ran for 130 yards last time the Giants faced off against the Skins and was pretty beastly in every game he played last year.

Michael Turner scares me a little bit. Did anybody watch Sproles run for 100+ in the first half against the Seahawks? Part of me is thinking that anybody would look good in that scheme or behind that line.

I like Turner as a fantasy back but until he proves he can do it on a terrible offense with a rookie QB, I would go with Jacobs every week regardless of opponent.

Same thing with Cooley, I would start him every week until I had a reason to bench him.

Edit: BTW why do you have Colt Brennan on your team? I would cut him immediately. No reason to carry 3 QB's, especially when one is a rookie/backup.

I am about to draft 2nd in my money league in 20 minutes, who would you guys take? I am thinking LT or Adrian Peterson, whichever one doesn't go first, thoughts?

Default Re: Week 1 Sit em/Start em thread

^^I had the 2nd pick in the draft. I think the draft went:

1) Brady
2) Gore
3) AJ
4) Jacobs
11) Turner

I was surprised as hell to see turner sitting there way down at the bottom of the draft. My WR corps is really really thin. Also, at least 3 of the teams in the draft had autodraft on, and had not done a good job setting up their draft board.

LT is probably going to go first, and you probably need to have a strong RB backing up Peterson if you draft him. You just have to expect Peterson to miss at least a few games to injury.

You could probably go with Brady (That's the only QB that is probably worth taking that high, and I'm sure somebody would have a different opinion here), but I see a lot of fantasy teams do fine with a QB picked in the 5th or 6th rounds (Delhomme, Hasselbeck, etc).

If you want a different RB, you would probably have to go with a back that is the only back that is really good on their respective team. Westbrook gets a lot of receptions as well as running yards for the Eagles. Clinton Portis usually gets a ton of yards, but I don't think he's a 2nd pick in the draft back.

That should give you an idea.

I think that would put you in the same company as the vast majority of folks with this year's #2 pick. Third on my list would be Westbrook, but I wouldn't put him ahead of LT or AD.

Yeah, it's tough, no way I am drafting a QB in Round 1, no thanks, sorry b0ng.

If not AP, then Addai or S. Jackson is what I am thinking, thoughts? maybe Westbrook.

COLT BRENNAN IS A TRUE AMERICAN HERO YOU TAKE THAT BACK (He stays)

The only thing with Jacobs is that Coughlin has been known to do RBBC in the middle of games. I'm thinking that if Coughlin thinks Jacobs is not doing as well as Bradshaw or Ward would, then he'll get pulled. I don't think Turner has any of that worry surrounding him. That's the only thing that's keeping me from starting Jacobs over Turner.

I'm still trying to understand how you picked up Brady, AJ, Gore, Turner, & Jacobs in the same draft?
