I think Rice and Floyd are the easy choices.

After that, it's almost a coin-flip for me. I'd probably go Maclin because of the problems with the NYG secondary or Hawkins because the Bengals have, at times, put up some points this year. I don't trust the KC offense and I don't like anyone against SF's defense... assuming that last week against the Vikes was a blip.

Not a fan of Bowe? I figured he and floyd was the for sure starter here...

You think Sydney Rice will have a big game this week?

I'm not a big fan of Cassel or Romeo Crennel. I thought SD was playing pretty well defensively prior to that Atlanta debacle. I'm not expecting a lot of scoring from the Chiefs this week. Bowe has put up big numbers this year against Buffalo and New Orleans which are two of the worst pass defenses in the league.

Sidney Rice is going up against the Rams and the Rams have not exactly been stingy.

BUT... I hadn't actually looked at stats for that and I was going by my gut feeling after having watched a couple of Rams games this year. But after looking up the San Diego stats and the Rams stats, I think I was wrong. The Rams haven't been surrendering many passing TDs this year.

Bowe is probably the better option.

Default Re: The "Who should I start" thread

I could use some help. I need to start two RBs, a flex, and two WRs. League is PPR and gives 1 point for every 10 punt return yards and 1 for every 25 kick return yards.

Options:
Darren Sproles
Doug Martin
Michael Bush
Tashard Choice
Megatron
Greg Jennings
Jeremy Maclin
Amendola
Eric Decker

Thoughts?

I am leaning towards Sproles, Choice, Megatron, Jennings, and Decker.

What say you?

Yeah i was leaning towards these two. when maclin was hurt last week he still put up big numbers, and i picked up hawkins this week because his numbers just keep improving each game. Looks like he is starting to become a fav of Dalton.

Thanks for the imput

I see your point. Also i noticed Bowe only makes his pionts in the final mins of the each game. I got lucky last week he had about 1 point at the end of the game but got 7 points in OT... So if they ever have a lead he wont be getting the ball

These are such a Toss-up. I need to trade some so i dont have to decide every week...

Thanks for the input

I would go with Martin vs Washingtons hurt defense, Bush Vs the Cowgirls, Megatron (of course) and the tough one... I would go the seahawks D would scare Amendola away, Maclin has is hurt but expected to play, Jennings hasn't been doing anything the first 3 weeks (might be time for a Big game).

I would go with Decker, and hope Manning doesn't throw all his passes to Thomas.

:edit: my flex position would be Sproles, he will consistantly get you points

Martin, Megatron, Jennings, Bush, Decker not taking into account the return yards which we attribute to DEF.

Harvin 100%. He should be your first option out of the people you listed every week until minesota plays a team like the 49ers. Harvin is having a great start to the season and I would ride that wave till he has 2 or 3 bad games in a row.

No other options?

I'd prefer Britt, but he sounds very iffy to me. May take a needle.

Forte, IMO, is more likely to play with extra day & fact players get up for Monday night games.

I'd wait until just before kickoff to hear about Britt.
