I have a similar choice this week. I'm stuck with an injured (borderline bust) WR1 in Megatron and a bunch of WR2 like MSW, Crabtree and Bowe. In addition, our league does not require a TE but instead starts any combo of 3 WR/TE. So, I have A. Gates in the mix too.
I've been going back and forth, looking at all the rankings trying to decide. curtk makes a great point when he explains the reason to sit Crabtree.
If you pull him for Crabtree at the last minute, then you're getting your third best option.
Yeah, he could go off against a weak TEN pass D, but it's a long shot.
With CJ you don't know what you're gonna get. He could be hurt, Stafford could be hurt. He could get 1 reception for 2 yards like he did against PIT. I just don't trust him at this point. I would love too, because I paid top dollar for him, but I can't trust him right now. For that reason, I like MSW here. Yes, he had a tough game last week and you were probably disappointed if you started him, but I think he has shown to be the most consistent WR of CJ, Crabtree and him. I'm thinking that I am going to roll with Bowe, Gates and MSW this week.
