Manning brother trouble. WHIR.

Postby blubomber17 » Tue Sep 13, 2011 5:35 am

In one of my couple of leagues, I drafted both Manning brothers (obviously before the injury news). Peyton is being dropped; whenever he comes back I doubt he'll be of much use to me (10 team, ESPN standard). Now, the question is, for whom? Does Eli go too? My roster for this league:

QB: Eli, Peyton
RB: LeSean McCoy, Felix Jones, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Fred Jackson, Danny Woodhead
WR: Roddy White, Vincent Jackson, Percy Harvin, Steve Smith, Braylon Edwards
TE: Jimmy Graham, Brandon Pettigrew
D/ST: Patriots
K: Mason Crosby

I put a waiver claim for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Should I follow through? Should I go after Cam Newton or Chad Henne instead? Should Eli be dropped as well? Any help would be great.

Not big on Fitzpatrick I take it?

And thanks, I'll probably drop Braylon; Woodhead is more-or-less the Green-Ellis handcuff.

Thanks, I guess I'll see what happens with Fitz.

Stand pat. Freeman should develop to be a solid starter, perhaps better than Eli, but either way if you play the match-ups with those two you should be okay.

lol ok thanks. But if henne puts up similar numbers and manning has another bad outing or none of my sleepers show more promise then i will definitely add Henne.

I don't hate that decision. The reason I'm giving Eli time is simply because it's Eli freaking Manning, you know? I'm banking he'll come around sooner or later. But yeah, if you don't feel like playing the waiting game, you do have Freeman, so nabbing Henne after a few more crappy weeks wouldn't be awful.
