Beanie Wells or Ochocinco??

Postby handslikesecrets » Thu Sep 08, 2011 11:20 pm

I'm in my first Fantasy Football League. 10 teams, each team consisting of a QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 WR/RB, 1 TE, 1 D, and 1 K. The rest are bench. So my team right now looks like this:

QB- Philip Rivers, Chargers
RB- Adrian Peterson, Vikings
RB- Benjarvus Green-Ellis, Pats
RB/WR= ???
WR- Calvin Johnson, Lions
WR- Dwayne Bowe, Chiefs
TE- Jermichael Finley, Packers
D- Jets
K- Nate Kaeding

(B) QB- Matt Stafford, Lions
(B) RB- Beanie Wells, Cardinals
(B) RB- C.J. Spiller, Bills
(B) RB- Ricky Williams, Ravens
(B) RB- Cadillac Williams, Rams
(B) RB- Ronnie Brown, Eagles
(B) WR- Chad Ochocinco, Pats
(B) WR- Deion Branch, Pats

Who do I put in that RB/WR position?? Again, this is my first shot at Fantasy Football, so any other input is much appreciated!!

Beanie ... pretty easy decision for me too. Without PPR, RBs score more than WRs. And as mediocre as Beanie has been, as a featured back his floor is pretty high. Ocho scares me - I'd like to see him put up numbers with the Pats before I trust a start to him. In contrast to Beanie, his floor is extremely low.

Beanie --- in a landslide.

Look for him to get 20+ touches against the hapless Panthers, whose 2ndary is just ok but whose run D is below average imo. Watch as AZ gets a lead, and Kolb hands the rock to Wells to spin the clock, shortening the game down the stretch... Ocho didn't exactly impress in pre-season, and Brady loves Welker AND BOTH TEs... Ocho MIGHT get you a TD, but Beanie SHOULD get you 1 and maybe 2, plus over 100yds total from scrimmage...

Nice draft btw...
