Week 10 - Will This Strategy Work?

Postby bmd » Tue Nov 09, 2004 1:33 am

I might start 3 Packers in week 10 - Favre, Green and Walker. Green is my stud and is a must start. Walker starts at WR due to the Randy Moss injury, and Favre might get the nod over Brady and Aaron Brooks. The only other option that I might have is to trade for Hasselbeck and give him the nod over Favre. Would I be wise to go with 3 Packers against the Vikings?

Why not? Their defense is pretty soft. The Pack have been playing pretty well as of late, and Favre will surely throw some bombs to Walker and give Ahman his touches. I can see this being a fairly high scoring game even though it's in Lambeau.

The point of fantasy football is to start the players who will score you the most points. There's no sense trading for a player just for one week. They are all good fantasy producing players, so start them with confidence. ;-D

no reason why it wouldn't work.

I mean... if walker is your best play. I wouldn't sit a stud wr for him, but he's probably as good a play as any of the 2nd tier receivers next week.

farve is much stronger than hassleback. The vikings have horrible defense, so I don't see why you shouldn't start 3 packers in one game. I've done the same thing with San Diego (Brees, Kaeding, Gates) and their players have been my huge studs giving me dozens of points per game, so why won't it work with the Packers???

I'm sorry, but Walker IS a stud WR. Start him with confidence.

Walker IS a stud. I have him in one of my leagues and he is the reason I am in the division race. Definitely go with him. With a D as bad as the Vikings, it's a safe play. If they were playing say the Pats or Steelers, no way.

Wait...you're starting multiple players that are facing a terrible defense?

This is a breakthrough strategy! Never before in all my years of fantasy football have I seen something so innovative! Bravo, sir, BRAVO!

I'm doing it. Starting Favre, Walker, and Driver. It's all about the match up.

I view both Walker and Green and must start studs and Farve is still a top 5 QB. I would not hesitate to start all three as both GB and MN are high scoring offensive and have historical had high scoring games. With the additional fact that GB will be at home an in position to even up the division race with a win, I would say follow your stategy. Good Luck.
