Dez Bryant (vs NYJ) or Maclin (vs StK)

Postby thepsychic » Wed Sep 07, 2011 12:41 pm

Which WR2 should I start in week 1? I have Nicks who I'm definitely starting, so I need to pick between Dez Bryant (playing the Jets) or Jeremy Maclin (against the Rams). Will Revis take Austin the entire game? Will Cromartie's size bother Dez? Is Maclin well enough (coming back from serious illness and didn't play in any of the preseason games) to play enough snaps to make him startable?

Thanks!

I think in your case you role with Dez Bryant until we see how Maclin figures in.
The problem is Miles Austin is listed with an injury so they may role revis over to Bryant for this game and let Cromartie cover Austin ... who knows?


I still say you gotta go Bryant

Thanks for helping me!

I would go with Maclin as long as we don't hear any negative stuff the next 3 days about him and practice. I just think this is so much higher scoring game then the DAL vs NYJ game!

My thought is it could be a tough week for any player against the NYJ defense this year. Bryant looked great in preseason, and I think will be Romo's go to guy this year. But, this week, if Maclin is healthy, I go with him because it should be higher scoring.

Although Maclin has had his problems, the season opener is not such a straight forward game against a favoured St Louis team. That suggests to me that Andy Reid is confident Maclin can perform.

That means the Rams are facing Vick, McCoy, DJax, Celek and a healthy Maclin..... scary prospect and Maclin may be over-looked if the Rams think he is under par. This gives him some serious opportunities to make big plays. I would take the risk and go with him.

Thanks for helping with mine.

As long as Maclin is starting, Maclin hands down. Bryant was consistently continuing to drop wide open passes in the preseason as he did last year. When teams double cover Desean Jackson, Maclin always wins. Especially for TD's.

Say No to anyone on Revis Island.
