Ok so I need help choosing 1 QB and 1 WR. Here are my options at QB:
Eli Manning vs Washington Sam Bradford @ Arizona
Here are my options at WR (can only choose one): Boldin vs Pit Garcon vs Dallas Sidney Rice vs Buffalo
I'm leaning towards Bradford at QB. Eli doesn't have a whole lot of weapons to throw to on offense because Nicks and Smith are injured. And my opponent has Boss. As for WR, I don't know where to go from here. Talent wise, Boldin is the best. But he has been seeing a lot of double coverage, and the past two weeks he has scored less than 3 fantasy points in each. He has posted less than 3 fantasy points FIVE times this year. Taking into account his tough matchup with PIT, I think this is mainly between Rice and Garcon. I think if AP plays, then I go with Garcon, if he doesn't then I go with Rice.
At QB I have to say Manning. Even last week he scored great points. He has some of the best FF QB points. He is always throwing even to the RB's. Manning for sure has more points than Bradford even though I like watching Sammy better. He is far more exciting. AZ def sucks, but Wash is not a whole lot better against the past and Eli has been pretty good in division games.
Yea your WR choices are tough. Boldin has been very non-productive for FF teams thus far. A game here or there and that's it. Garcon cannot be trusted. I have to say I would choose Rice just because of the scoring opts he will have. Better natchup for sure.
I would go with Eli and garçon. Eli has been very solid and even tho he's missing wrs, it's a division game, wash secondary is not good, and he still has Mario, boss and his tbs to throw to. He will put up decent numbers. St Louis could be running all day v Arizona. Garçon and peyton have had time ti work together more lately and I think garçon will finish strong.
I like Eli and Garcon all day long. Arizona & Washington have bad defenses, but Eli is more experienced and cooler in the pocket. I think Bradford has a higher scoring potential, but he also has a lower floor than Eli. Of those wide outs I like Garcon. Being a colts fan, I watch every game and it feels like peyton targets him more than all the other receivers (Wayne gets covered by #1CB & safety, tamme gets a LB, White/Collie get safety or LB, and Garcon is usually left in single coverage). He has good hands and is made a target at least one play while in the red zone. He rarely gets 40+ yard passes but is always good for 10 - 20 yards per reception.
Thanks for the help with mine. I'm in a similar situation, choosing between Eli and Cutler. I'm in a position where I need to hit a home run somewhere, as my opponent this week has both Vick and McCoy. In our PPR scoring, they put up a healthy 58 between them. I'm saying that because I agree with the other poster - Bradford has bigger upside, Eli is the safer play. I'd make my choice based on whether I need a big game from my QB or just a solid one.
I like Garcon at WR, or at least I like him better than your other options. Minny has turned into a run heavy offense, and even with AP hurt, they're comfortable with Gerhart back there as well. I see Sidney being a Mike Wallace type now, maybe a big play, but no consistent production. Unfortunately, Favre is not the QB that Ben is, so those big plays will be limited at best. Boldin has been such a disappointment after a hot start, his numbers are way behind Mason's now. And Garcon may not have the best hands around, but you know Indy is throwing, and you know he'll see his share of targets. Good luck!
Thanks for help with mine. At QB, I'd go with Manning, the Giants usually seem to step up in division games. A lot of his weapons are hurt, but like his big brother, Eli still manages to put up some decent points. As for the WR, it's pretty much a crap shoot. I'd go with Garcon simply because I feel he's due, but even though Boldin ha a bad matchup, I still think he's the safest bet of the bunch.
Thanks for the help, will try to return the favor.
At QB you have 2 good options. It just depends on what you are looking for.
Bradford is consistent, he'll get you 15 pts. Won't win you the week but definitely will not lose it for you. Manning can blow it up any week but he does play a division rival this week with limited WR talent. He can go either way and who knows how that wiond will be swiriling in North Jersey. I say start Bradford and let your skill players win it for you
You WR choice is not as difficult.
Boldin is your best WR but not against Pitt def, even though their corners are their weak spot. That game is usually a pount it out game, big day for Rice not so much Boldin. Garcon against Dallas secondary is very nice. With Reggie Wayne occupied with Dallas' best CB (whoever that is) this leaves Garcon matchuped with the lesser of the CB's. It will be a shoot out and Peyton will throw alot, to Garcon. Vikings will run, run, and run some more. Favre will throw 20 times and Rice isnt quite back yet. With all this said you have to start Garcon.
12 Team PPR League QB: Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan RB: Adrian Peterson, Ronnie Brown, Felix Jones, Ryan Torain, CJ Spiller, Javon Ringer WR: Miles Austin, Roddy White, T.O, Lance Moore TE: Visante Shancoe, Chris Colley K: Graham Gano DEF: Titans

It's the good kind of hard decision, because I'd feel very comfortable starting either one. In a lot of cases, I feel the best start is the one that you think will be the bigger shootout. I think that would be Eli, personally.
Your opponent has Boss whether you start Eli or not. That shouldn't impact your decision, because not starting Eli doesn't change what Eli throws to Boss. I know that's obvious, but you'd be surprised how often people bring up the "player cancels out" argument. It's FF... your kicker may cancel out his QB. All that actually matters is your potential to generate points.

A little earlier in the year this would have been easier. Boldin was so much more of a threat and Rice and Garcon were both injured. Now I feel like it's a toss up between Garcon and Boldin, and Boldin's been utterly useless for the last few weeks (I have him myself, so I feel it!) so I know I would start Garcon.
I'm really hoping that teams have to start covering Housh more, because I could really use another solid WR option from my bench, but I don't start Boldin until I see reason to believe that will happen!
I don't think Pitt is that tough of a matchup for a receiver. Much more of a concern for a runner, etc.
