Who to start? Devery Henderson or Maclin? WHIR

Postby pman555 » Thu Sep 15, 2011 10:32 am

12 team league, no PPR.

Would you start Devery Henderson or Jeremy Maclin?

I'm leaning towards Henderson.

Thanks!

Id probably roll with Maclin. He had a bad week, but the Eagles throw ALOT, and he was one of Vicks favorite targets last year, esp in the RZ.

Henderson is usually a big play WR, and Chicagos Def doesnt give too many of them up

Interesting, i was leaning towards Henderson because with Colston out, Brees has to give Henderson more looks.

To my eyes, Maclin STILL does not appear to be up to "game-weight", and Vick just did not look his way enuff last wk to warrant a start over Devery, who besides Meachem, is Brees fav downfield target, esp. with Colston OUT for at least a month. I'm looking for Brees to re-establish/rekindle his hook-up chemistry with Henderson while Colston is hurt... Maclin would be sitting on my bench until it becomes clear that he regains ALL of the size and strength that made him so effective LAST season, until then he'd be riding the pine...just my 2c, GL!

Henderson does this every year...big game, then 0, then 0, then 0, then big game. No way I would trust him. I would definitely play Maclin.

drhanl makes a salient point: Devery is infamous for his disappearing acts following big games, and that can be frustrating, and that's also why I've NEVER owned him in any league, any season. THAT SAID, however, with Lance Moore questionable AGAIN and likely limited along with Colston's injury and absence, I'd still be tempted to give Devery one more shot at home v CHI where the Saints will need to utilize his size and big-play ability, albeit against a damn good CHI D... Maclin just don't look quite right to me...yet...

I think I'd have to agree with NavySeal, I'd roll with Devery, he had the most targets last week, and that was with Colston in there. I think Moore possibly coming back and Colston going out is probably a wash in terms of looks gained or taken. I dont like how Maclin looked at all, and even though you can throw against the Falcons, I dont think Maclin gets much love this week. IMO, I'd roll with Henderson.

help with mine?

I think that the Eagles/Falcons is going to turn into a bit of a shootout and the Eagles are going to be passing to keep a lead. Whereas I think the Saints will be ahead early and try to establish the run.

Roll with maclin!
