Starting Laurence Maroney AND Sammy Morris?

Postby l0wki » Fri Sep 28, 2007 2:38 pm

What do you guys think of this plan? Is it just plain stupid or will it make me look like a genius?

For the past three weeks, it seems that both players have been putting up numbers no matter what... and with the Patriots high-powered offense.. maybe this wouldn't be such a bad idea after all... or am I just crazy?

Yay or Nay?

I'd only say Yah if have no other RB option available.. Literally.. because combining these two will give you about 130-140 yards total and a TD. Plus, if Morris does not score, you've just locked up your RB stop to total of about 5 points. Not very good production if you have somebody else on your bench

If you have a WR/RB slot I would certainly consider it. And of all weeks, this is probably the week to give it a shot. I think they should be good for atleast 2 total TDs this week.

not normally advisable. But every now and then, it can be viable. I think this is one of those weeks.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Usually not a good idea. Maroney is hurting so Morris might be a better option. I would start Caddy over one of them, prolly over Morris. The Bungals D can rise up and play well and the New England machine is due to slow down, right?

I'm doing it in one of my dynasty leagues. Maroney has done nothing so far, and until he does, if you don't have any better players, it's not a horrible idea to start both. Morris has done better so far, but Maroney could go off at any time.

As a side note, that team is 0-3 and in second to last place, so it isn't necessarily a winning strategy.

Would you start both of them over kenny watson? I am up by one point and my opponent has NE D/ST. I feel that if i get 20 pts out of my 2 backs i will win. Watson scares me expecially against NE D.
