I'm looking for some up-side, but I absolutely cant take any zeros.
Deion Branch--PROS: Lighting it up recently. CONS: But the weather is gonna be horrendous. I am starting two Pats already (Hernandez, BJGE) in what one would think will be a low scoring game. It seems irresponsible to put my playoff success on one team in crappy weather.
Hakeem Nicks--PROS: A dream matchup against a run-stopping, but weak secondary defense. Delay until Monday allows another day of healing, and he feels optimistic about his progress CONS: Performance after surgery is questionable. His involvement has been described as "comparable to a preseason game"
VJax--PROS: No weather concerns. CONS: Questionable intentions to play at 100%. If/when SD gets ahead in this game, will he be effective?
Davone Bess--PROS: Revis is likely to cover Marshall, while Bess could pick apart a secondary missing their 'defensive quarterback' Safety Jim Leonhard. The weather I presume is a non-issue, compared to NE/CHI and NYG/MIN. CONS: He doesn't score TDs.
How would you play it?
QB: Eli Manning
RB: Knowshon Moreno, Benjarvis Green-Ellis, Brandon Jacobs
WR: Hakeem Nicks, Vincent Jackson, Deion Branch, Davone Bess, Ochocinco
TE: Aaron Hernandez, Owen Daniels
K: David Akers
12-team, standard format
