Has anyone sat a stud based on matchups for the week...?

Postby Clevelander » Wed Sep 17, 2003 8:34 am

reason i ask is going into this week im debating on henry. some may not consider him a stud but his numbers do make him a top RB.

henry plays mia. who 'd' hasnt been the best.
my other backs are...
hearst whos going against cleveland great run 'd'
and moe williams whos got detroit this week.

to me its a tough call only because theother 2 guys are going against some very weak run defenses...

has anyone pulled the trigger like this and would say bench henry for the other 2.....

well, a few years back I sat Brett Favre because he was going against the defending champion Baltimore Ravens and their insanely good defense. Well, Favre was hot that day and torched them for over 300 yards and three scores.

IT doesn't always work that way though, like sitting McNabb against the BUcs in week one would have turned out to be a good idea.

Anyways, I would suggest starting Henry. Miami's D hasn't looked all that impressive anyways, while Buffalo's offense is ROLLIN'.

Unless your stud is playing TB's defense or you have a backup stud, always play your studs.

Week 1 I sat Harrington and rodgers and started Brett Favre and Quincy Morgan.

The first rule of fantasy football (post-draft) is always start your studs!
The second rule of fantasy football is always start your studs!
Week one I choose to sit Burress because he was going against a Ravens D that I thought would be great with Lewis back in form. If Henry’s fumble wouldn’t have been changed I would have lost week one by 0.4 points. Burress outscored his replacement D Jax, who had a favorable match-up with the Saints, by a wide margin. So I turned to my fantasy football guide and rule 3 said; always start your studs! The Bills have shown that they will turn to Henry in the red zone even when he is not getting any yards; just check last week’s stats.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I actually benched S Davis against TB in week 2 and started Moe Williams against Bears...

Am very pleased with the results.

I can see benching a stud against Tampa, that's about the only way though.

I had Henry and sat him last week in favor of Garner (vs. Cin). Well, that was a 15 point disappointment. If you have a stud player, you start them, it's fantasy football 101, Chapter 1, page 1, first sentence of the first paragraph.

In Henry's case I wouldnt be scared of Miami...He torched them last year for 283 yards in 2 games....and Miami's D looked better last year.
