Default Start Em/Sit Em

Use this thread to ask the great members of TexansTalk on advice forw ho to start and who to sit.

Me, for this week, should i start Eli Manning(vs WAS) or Chad Pennington(@ ATL). Eli has very little success against the Redskins so i'm kind of torn between the two.

Very difficult choice. I would probably lean towards Pennington.

Who would you start? Derrick Ward or Cedric Benson? Ward looks to run by committee and Benson, well, is Cedric Benson. Also, would you start Jay Cutler or Aaron Rodgers and the Chicago Defense or the Tampa Bay Defense? Thanks!

As for the QB situation, i'd definitely go with Rodgers. He threw for about 500yards and 4 tds in two games against the bears last year, and the bears secondary hasnt gotten any better. And i'd probably go with Benson just because he will get most of the load

Thanks man. That was exactly what I was thinking. And if Rodgers is going to torch the Bears secondary like we both think he will, then I should probably start Tampa Bay's defense. Rep your way.

I have Cutler and Rodgers also, without a doubt I'm going with Rodgers. I also drafted Ward but I'm really scared to play him week 1. I sure didn't expect to see a healthy Cadillac when I drafted him. Supposedly they are going to have a 3 headed monster with Graham stealing GL carries. I would start Benson against a weak Denver defense and wait and see on Ward.

I'd play Sproles against Oakland. First, you know - the Raiders. Second, who knows who's going to emerge as the #1 in Tampa?

I've got one:

Felix Jones against Tampa, or Darren McFadden against San Diego.

Sproles

Diehard, I would go with McFadden. The guy was pretty decent when healthy and should be better this year. But its a tough decision. Felix Jones looked good last year too.

Wow, thats a good one. McFadden should be the #1, but Oakland isnt the best team offensively, and is going against a pretty dang good defense. San Diego was 11th last season against the run.

Felix is the #2 explosive change of pace back. Tampa was 19th against the run last season.

It really is a coin toss. As a change of pace back, what can you expect? 50-70 yards and a TD? I would expect at least 70 yards and a TD from McFadden.

I would go with the #1 RB even for a below average team, over a #2 RB for a above average team. Hope this helps.

DMac has been named the starter... but like you said - tough defense. That said, as HORRIBLY EMBARRASSING TO THE UNIVERSE as the Raiders are, they are actually a very good running team with a very good run-blocking offensive line.

I'm leaning toward DMac, but the Bucs are SO BAD, and I think the Cowboys are going to smarten up this year and become the running team they SHOULD have been all this time.

I dunno. I guess I still have a lot of time to wring my hands about it, LOL.

Thanks guys.

Sproles is gonna have to play like a man on a mission if he wants to beat out Carnell Williams 100 yards and a TD.

And good call on our call for DMac over Felix (20 yards 0 TD's). Im sure he will get more than that.

I think TB will ride Williams until he's hurt again. They had equal carries against Dallas, but if I'm not mistaken Williams had a MUCH bigger YPC.

Yeah, Carnell had a better YPC. He only had one more carry though.

Pick three. DeAngelo Williams @ ATL. Ronnie Brown vs. IND. Carnell Williams and Derrick Ward @ BUF.

Darren Sproles vs BAL, LeSean McCoy vs NO, and Ricky Williams vs IND will be on the bench.

I have DeAngelo Williams, Ronnie Brown, and Cadillac Williams penciled in as the starters.

Carnell Williams. They say they want to limit him to 15 carries a game. I doubt Ward gets 15 carries, and Williams looked pretty good out there. Actually I would start both of them if I didnt have stacked RB's.
