Cleveland WRs

Postby M_Zimm_ffc » Thu Nov 20, 2003 1:57 pm

My WR corp is terribly messed up right now. I have made a couple FA/WW moves and I was wondering... I saw on NFL Live that they said that Holcombe plays well vs Pitt and it should be a battle of QBs and that they both should have a ot of yards. Would it be smart to start both Andre Davis and Quincy Morgan?

depends on your other options but just in general I would say no.

You know, Zimm, I was thinking about this earlier... The strategy of starting two WR's on the same team... If they've got a good passing game, you almost guarantee yourself a good day out of one of them, right?

The problem with your situation is that Northcutt is still in the picture... If you start Davis and Morgan and Northcutt catches Cleveland's 2 TD's you're screwed...

But I do think that strategy in general may have applications...

I could always pick up Northcutt too... :-D

I kinda like the idea myself. I'm intrigued by Jurevicius, but I'm personally gonna wait a week to see his effectiveness first.

I started Bobby Engram and Darrell Jackson this past week in one of my less serious leagues. You could do worse than starting Morgan and Davis this week I think. It's impossible to say which one is better at this point. For the record I went with Davis this week.

I wouldn't start 2 WRs from Clev- Holcomb is not Manning- one
good game last year is no guarantee of the same this year.

Holcomb's good game wasn't last year, and it wasn't a good game. It was a great game, and it was last week.

Still, Holt and Bruce or Harrison and Wayne (or Johnson and Warrick) are better starts than Davis and Morgan. But if you're really desperate, then do it.

Two weeks ago I came really close to starting Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster.

I don't know why but for some reason I feel safer starting two Cleveland WRs thatn one and Joe Jureicious. I don't have trust in him yet since he just got the starting spot. I don't think I am going to start James Jackson because I don't think that he will do much against the Steelers D. Their rush D is better than their pass. I think I will bite the bullett. I may drop Moriss though to get Morgan.
