Somehow, by luck and the play of my non-quarterback players, I have made the Super Bowl in my league (Week 15 NFL), despite having no steady QB. I REALLY need to make a good choice for this week, and I'm very unsure. Last week I went with Young on the waiver wire...as we know, he played very well for a half, then came out with an injury; he is very uncertain for this week, and frankly I don't want to risk playing a guy that may come out at any time. So here are my options:
Flacco (on my roster) vs Chicago - Flacco despite a DECENT week last week against the worst pass defense in the league, has been awful for about 7 weeks straight. I simply don't trust him, and this matchup is just average.
Young (on my roster) vs Miami - If Young was 100% this is definitely where I'd be going this week. I like this matchup and the way he has been playing lately. However, he is nowhere near 100%, and it may be too risky of a start.
Matt Ryan (on my roster on IR) @ Jets - Way too risky if he does play, and I don't like the matchup anyway.
Campbell (available on waive wire) vs NYG - JC has been putting up quality numbers lately AND the Giants have been awful against the pass recently. A very likely possibilty, but I am scared that this may be an old school NFC East defensive brawl/low scoring run game..not that likely considering the way the teams have played recently, but possible
Orton (on WW) vs Oakland - great matchup although Orton hasn't been lighting it up lately. Seems like AT LEAST a same 15+
At the moment I'm leaning toward one of the last two...never in a MILLION YEARS would I think I'd be starting one of these guys in the superbowl..fantasy is crazy
What do you guys think? Thanks in advance...
Current Fantasy Football Roster, 10 team performance based league...
QB - M. Ryan, Flacco RB - A.Peterson, Portis, Moreno, R.Williams WR - R.Wayne, Desean Jackson, D.Bowe, D.Mason TE - Carlson, Z.Miller K - Praeter, Carpenter D/ST - Bears, Colts
I'd go with Campbell. I think it's likely DEN eats up the ground all day against a bad OAK run defense, while the WAS/NYG game should be more balanced and may favor an air attack. Did you SEE the PHI/NYG game? Not exactly an NFC East turf battle, was it?
I just think there'll be a lot more air time for Campbell than for Orton...
