Ryan @ CAR
Need a 2nd RB to start with CJ...
Barber @ GB <---
other options better
Benson @ PIT <---
Mendy is tempting but I think Benson is the play. Looking at game logs Benson is pretty matchup immune. He has hung four 100+ yard games on opponents, three of which were vs tough defenses, Bal (twice), and at Green Bay (currently 3rd ranked defense vs. FF RBs). He also had 76 yards and a TD vs PIT last time they faced each other. So though he was under a buck for the day, he still had a 4.75 net ypc average. CJ
Mendenhall vs CIN <---
Has only run over one top defense (DEN last week). Other than that he had 100+ on SD. But had weak yardage games vs poor teams like CLE, and DET, as well as laying an egg vs MIN. He could have a better day than Benson, but Benson has the more proven track record here.
WRs look good to me. I haven't been following CJ's recovery status, and I try to withhold advice unless I feel certain about it. But the kneejerk reaction is to always start CJ over Burleson if healthy. That's why you drafted him so high. Celek
@ SD <-- an every week play...
Shockey @ STL <--- can STL stop anyone? Brees spreads it out so much I cant determine if he is worth starting...
I think Shockey is a great play as well. He always gets his targets and is a big red-zone threat. NO will see plenty of end-zone this week. Not sure if I like him more than Celek or not, but StL is 6ths worst vs Fantasy TEs, and SD is 11th worst. So both are good matchups. It's close enough that I would stick with your gut. You watch them play and so are dialed in to how they perform.
Bengals @ PITNYJ
Yeah. I actually think CIn can have a decent day, but the PIT offense hasn't really laid any turds the way JAC has. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=460866viewtopic.php?f=18&t=460949
