Question Re: Weekly Sit/Start Discussion Thread

How about these options? Philip Rivers VS KC or Jay Cutler VS Detroit. I am leaning towards Rivers, because even without Vincent Jackson (who happens to be on my FF team but I think I may have dropped him) he is the better option then Cutler IMO.

Whadda' yall say?

Don't sit your studs. Cutler is a good backup in case your guy goes down but you don't really want to rely on him not throwing interceptions in that Martz offense over a whole season.

Default Re: Weekly Sit/Start Discussion Thread

I got RB and my flex position that I need to decide between:

Need one RB and one RB/WR:
L. McCoy
Hightower
CJ Spiller
Lee Evans

Not really considering the rest of my bench, which is:
Slaton
Sproles
Dez Bryant

The rest of the starters are locked down:
P. Rivers
AP
Colston
Calvin Johnson
T. Gonzales
D/ST Cowboys
and some kicker.

I am leaning toward Hightower and McCoy, but I hate McCoy's match up against GB. That's a tough row to hoe. So I am actually considering playing the rookie Spiller in his place. Thoughts?

For the bold, start Spiller if possible. The Bills passing game is suspect so I expect them to give CJ a lot of carries as they will probably depend on him for offensive points. He had a decent preseason campaign and I expect him to get a TD or two in his first regular season game.

I got stuck with DeSean Jackson and Maclin. I see Maclin as the true No. 1, especially with Vick. Should I sub one of them out?

Vick vs. the 28th ranked jax defense or Rogers vs. Chicago where he only had 1 td and less than 400 yards combined in 2 games last year.

Do I HAVE to go with my #1 because he is my unquestioned #1?

That's a tough one. I typically never bench my studs but this might just call for it.

I'd just like to know if you guys think I should keep starting Jamaal Charles. My RBs are Benson, Foster, Charles, Spiller, Fred Taylor, and Mike Tolbert (SD).

My WRs are AJ, Welker, Mark Clayton, and Mike Wallace.

I need to start two RBs, two WRs, and a flex.

Right now I have Foster, Benson, Charles, AJ, and Welker starting. I am considering starting Clayton as he has been Bradford's favorite target and moving Welker to the flex and sitting Charles this week. What do you guys think I should do?

I'd start Benson. I am predicting a big week for him.

Foster since he is the clear #1, and Benson faces a stingy Car run D this week. Benson will have to get a ton of carries to get near 100 and he has a shoulder nick right now. I would keep starting Charles simply due to his homerun threat potential. 49ers do have a solid run D tho.

This week:

Foster, Charles, AJ, Welker, and either Benson or Clayton. I typically go w RB in the flex when confronted with this scenario.

Awesome thanks! That is exactly what I am planning on doing then. You convinced me.

Other question I have is who to start at TE. I have Brent Celek and Kellen Winslow. I'd start Celek but with Vick being the starter in Philadelphia, I am unsure on what to do. Winslow is having knee issues but looks pretty damn good last week but was no good in week 1. Can't make up my mind.

I think with Vick starting, Celek will not get many opportunities. I would start Winslow.

I would also go with Winslow, Celek is a bad performance or 2 from getting cut from my squad.

Thanks to both of you for the advice, and I concur. If Celek has anymore bad weeks, I may drop him for John Carlson.
