Week 1 - Ingram vs GB or Matthews vs MIN???? WHIR

Postby TheSQUID » Sun Sep 04, 2011 4:35 pm

Whats up fellas, I have no idea who I want to start. Both match-ups aren't that great. Who would you start?

Mark Ingram vs GB
Ryan Matthews vs MIN

I'm kind of leaning towards Matthews, what do you guys think? Post a link to your question and I'll help you out. Thanks!

Are you getting pissy because no one answered within two hours? Best advice is to answer others and leave a link to your's so they will help you (like I'm about to do).

This is just from my gut, but I'd also lean towards Mathews. Although I didn't draft him, I was about to, but he got drafted just a pick or two before I got him. He has some upside and *could* produce well this year. The problem with both is the same; will he factor in the game at all? He could be big, but he could do little or nothing. The difference to me this week is the matchups. GB could get out to a big lead and then Ingram would do a lot of pass blocking. I don't see MIN getting out to a big lead vs SD, so Mathews has a better chance of remaining involved in the offense...

Help with mine?

I have this same dilemma.
My draft strategy was to put together as many 1000+ yd receivers and then try to compile running backs that I thought would score a lot of TD's
My starting WR's are Roddy White, Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Santonio Holmes.
I drafted Ryan Matthews as my No.1 RB and Ingram as my No.2
Right now I have matthews starting week one.
It is my thought that Ingram wis more likely to be a red zone back for New Orleans.
But Matthews is going to be a work horse for a potentant San Diego Offense.
Also I heard alot of smack talk about Matthews coming into the preseason how he was out of shape and not going to be as much of an impact as proven tolbert.
Although i love tolbert I still think matthews is going to get a lot of touches/game and also has the speed and strength to break long runs.
If you have any thoughts on what I have to say please post!
Thanks guys.
