Bench #1 WR playing the Broncos(Champ Bailey)?

Postby benb18a » Mon Sep 10, 2007 10:23 pm

I know Lee Evans isn't exactly a model of consistency, but once again, a very good receiver is basically deleted by Champ Bailey. I'm pretty sure he had more picks than receptions made by receivers being covered by him last season, which is the very meaning of a shutdown corner. I remember even Harrison having one catch for hardly any yards in their game early last season, and this is the most prolific passing tandem we are talking about. Do you bench semi-studs(AJ, Burress, Colston etc.) playing the Broncos? Discuss.

Yes, i'd consider benching someone who is playing champ bailey. However, playing the broncos is a great time to play a team's #2 wide....remember wayne last year?

Don't forget they added Dre Bly in the offseason. I think the Broncos are going to shut down a lot of teams' passing game this year.

You play your #1 fantasy receiver no matter what. If steve smith goes up vs Denver, I'm playing him.

I'll agree with that, but don't expect a real big game from your no.1 that wk.
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?

Well maybe next yr.

PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.

I'm pretty sure Evans having Losman throwing to him had a bit to do with it. Bailey is the best shutdown, possibly the only true shutdown CB, in the league, but a good QB should be able to beat his coverage a few times, and I'm not benching a stud WR vs. Denver unless I've got comparable talent to start in his place.

meh, i'm a broncos fan, and i love champ bailey and all, but i don't think i'd bench a stud WR vs. anyone, unless i had a really tantalizing option off the bench. a guy who watched the game mentioned to me that Lee Evans beat Champ on a long one to get open, but had it badly overthrown, and so missed the ball. I think it's not so much that's he just completely locks down a receiver that makes him great...it's the fact that he's a crazy ballhawk, and he reads QBs really well. This means that he will take chances playing the ball rather than simply sticking to coverage, which means the WR he's covering will at times get open...saw it happen a couple years ago vs. Chad Johnson, who had a big game against him. That's not to say that it's the norm...although i don't have #s or anything, it sure seems like wideouts generally don't do so great vs. him, but like i mentioned, i wouldn't bench a stud unless my options were really strong.

Funny thing on Sunday, fellas . . . Bly was covering Evans a lot that game. The only time Losman went deep to Evans, it was Bly with the blanket coverage, not Bailey.
