Is this guy a "must start" like many experts say? Will he keep it up? I have lately decided that I want to keep Bryant as my #3 reciever. Contrary to laughing from my other league mates, I see him as a decent #3. Agree?

All depends on what your other options are. Personally, I don't see how you can't start him, unless you're absolutely loaded at wideout. Two big games in a row, and he has a good track record given his productivity in Cleveland last season, I'd say start him 'til he slows down considerably. Besides, he's playing against a banged up secondary this week with both Hood and Sheppard both likely out this week. I'd keep him in your starting lineup.

I would have to agree. Alex Smith looks to have gotten a bit better over the offseason and in the first 2 games has thrown the deep ball well to Bryant. At this point hes one of the top recievers stats wise.

smith, gore, and bryant are must starts....what else do you need from bryant to solidify that....he has always had the talent, and smith will put up the yards, mostly to bryant until davis starts to get into a groove

Gore and Bryant, perhaps, but Smith is out of the question. The guy had two nice games thus far, but how can you advise someone to start Smith above all others when he's just in his second year and hasn't really done anything fantasywise that would garner him "must start" status. When he starts tossing 250 yards and 2-3 scores on a weekly basis, then he's a must start. Right now, he's a nice backup with upside.

depends on what type of league you guys are playing, obviously if you have manning, palmer, brady, or any top tier qb then of course you start them...


but i wouldnt hesitate to start smith at all this year, my other qb is warner, and regarding matchups id play smith over warner this year....


keep him on the bench if you want to, but id start smith and take his solid 240 and 1 or 2 td's over favre's 300 yds and 3 picks....


sorry but if you think players like favre is a must start, id take smith any day whether its been 2 weeks or not

You're all by yourself in that sentiment. Warner has 4 TD's and 1 INT to Smith's 2 TD's. Plus, Warner has a ton of top-tier weapons around him in Edgerrin James, Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald. Not to mention, Warner, when healthy, airs it out as well as anyone in the league.

Personally, I don't think anyone outside of John Madden thinks Brett Favre is a must start fantasy option anymore. Brett hasn't been a must start in years.
