Brandon Marshall > Calvin Johnson?

Postby zoolander12 » Sat Aug 30, 2008 1:27 pm

I passed up Calvin Johnson for Brandon Marshall. What do you all think? Who will have more fantasy points in a normal league, no PPR?

Marshall over CJ2 until he proves himself. Especially now that Marshall's suspension has been reduced from 3 games to 1.

I'd say Marshall is better than Johnson, maybe not on pure ability but in the numbers he'll put up. Marshall is the only legit WR on Denver and is Cutler's go-to guy. Johnson is still gonna be playing across from another stud in Roy Williams.

Interesting question...I think Holmes is poised for a big year, but I am actually currently looking to move Holmes in a package deal involving a RB from each side for Marshall b/c I kind of like Marshall a little more...but thoughts appreciated...Considering this could be that year that Holmes takes over the #1 WR from Hines...
QB: Sanchez
RB: CJ, LT
WR: White, Jennings,
TE: Shockey
W/R:
K: Rackers

No, not even close. Same reasoning I gave for CJ2, plus the Steelers have even more options than the Lions and probably won't be throwing enough for Holmes to out produce either of the two.

I think you mis-answered the question. You say "no" to "is Marshal better than Holmes", but your reasoning says "Yes".

I think the difference between the 3 is yardage. I think all will be close in TDs. Holmes will have substantially less catches than Marshall and a little less than CJ. But I think all will score double digit TDs this year. Holmes will score 10-12 TDs on 65 catches or so for 1,000-1,100 yards. I think Marshall could push 1,500 yards. CJ2 is the wild card to me. The guy could score a ton or just grow some more this year.

I've had a tough time deciding which 2 I should take between SSmith, Calvin, Holmes, or Marshall. I'm starting to exclude Holmes from the equation and I'm trying to decide between Smith, Calvin, and Marshall...Marshall seems like the no brainer to me with Smith and Johnson being a pick 'em because of Smith's suspension. Who would you go with?
