Beanie Wells or Felix Jones? WHIR

Postby flytrap » Tue Sep 06, 2011 3:46 pm

Standard scoring, no ppr. Normally this is easy, but Jones goes against the Jets, the 2nd best run D last year, and Beanie goes against the Panthers, who were 31st. Also, I expect the Panthers to struggle to score, which could in turn lead to a more conservative, run-oriented game by the Cardinals. Is Jones so much better than Beanie that the matchup isn't enough? Leave a link and I'll take a look at yours.

Normally, Felix all day over Beanie, but this discrepancy in these matchups is glaring. The safe bet is Beanie, but I can't help but cringe when I think about ARI offensive line and how horrible it is. I also could see Felix catching a few screens or checkdowns and exploding for some big numbers in that great offense.

Play the matchups here. Felix is a much better RB than Beanie, but the matchups are so far apart, you have to go with Beanie at home against a bad Carolina team. That Jets run defense can be pretty darn good.

I would actually go ahead and play felix because he is going to have a tremendous year and plus arizona has a pretty bad offensive line which should almost even it our pure skill levels between the two and everyone knows who is better.

Thanks for responding to mine. Appreciate you going out of your way to provide stats.

I think it's okay to play match ups here, even though it's week 1. I'm going with Wells here for the reasons you mentioned.

Since I had Wells last year, it hurts, it really does, to say this, go with Wells. Like ripping a bandaid off.
