Is this a good strategy?

Postby benb18a » Wed Dec 13, 2006 6:41 pm

Is starting the QB that is throwing to your opponent's WR1 a smart move? I have not decided on starting either Romo or Favre this week, as their matchups are pretty similar and I don't really know who will have the better week. My opponent has TO, would it be a good strategy to put Romo in in case he has a huge game?

Here's probably the best strategy when setting your roster every week. Use the players that you think will get the most points. Your opponent's roster should have no effect on yours.

It's that simple.

OK I get it. Thanks for laying the smackdown on my noobness :-b

I have heard this topic before, but I guess it doesn't make any sense to start a QB because of your opponent's WR. I was hoping this would make my rough decision easier :,-( :-b

its not necessarily a bad strategy- as far as fantasy football goes, i say forget who ur opponant has, put in who u think will get the most points that week- that being said, if u have a significantly better team than him, start romo cuz if T.O. has a big game, so does romo and the rest of ur team can take it for u- if he has a much better team than u, start farve and hope GB has a big day while dallas does nothing on offense- if the teams are about the same, go with ur gut

Start whoever you think will score the most points for your team. Who your opponent does or doesn't have is irrelevant when it comes to setting your lineup.

That is totally sensible to ignore who he has and focus on who you have to get you points. But, our overall teams are very even, examples being: we split the heads up matches, our projected points are exactly the same, all of our skill players add up to no edge for either team IMO, our defenses are decent but have awesome matchups, you name the position, they are just about dead even. This has literally given me a headache lol.

My gut tells me to go with Romo, but my intelligence tells me that Favre will be a slightly less risk. My intuition isn't exactly reliable, honestly. Ah the hell with it, I think I'm going with Favre. The main reason being Deangelo Hall. :-b

Deangelo Hall is overrated.

I'd just use Romo, he has been much more consistent than favre, he is a safer play. Favre has more upside, but romo should be safe for points.

The bold part is what your gut SHOULD be telling you... Although I do agree that they are both pretty even this week.

Only one issue to possibly (IMO) push this the other way - Romo is in a dome Saturday while Favre is playing in the rain in GB on Sunday...

Ben, sorry to be beating a dead horse but it doesn't matter if your teams are evenly matched, you have to evaluate your players individually and play the ones you think will get you the most points. The guy who has TO doesn't (or shouldn't anyway) care if you have Romo or not - he's going to be happy or unhappy with TO regardless of what you do. If Romo throws TDs to Glenn and Witten and TO is blanked you'll be happy and your opponent will be sad.

Favre or Romo - tough choice, I think both are erratic but Atlanta's pass defense sucks so I'd go with Romo although I didn't like the way he looked last game.
