Who do I start?!

Postby jaypurp » Thu Sep 15, 2011 2:00 pm

Alright everyone, I need help on who to start this week.

At RB:
Maurice Jones-Drew @ NYJ
Tim Hightower V ARI

Obviously Drew is the better RB, but with less touches and going up against the NYJ defense I'm not sure whether to start him or not.

At QB:
Matt Ryan V Phi
Kyle Orton V Cin

Though he threw for 300 yards last game, Ryan was held to no TD's. Going up against philly might make him have a repeat performance.

At WR:
Jeremy Maclin @ ATL
Jordy Nelson @ CAR

Maclin really let me down this past week and Nelson had a pretty good game. Still, Maclin could come alive at any moment.

I'm in a standard yahoo scoring league. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I like Ryan in a shootout. Tough sittin' MJD, but Jets' D worries me -- Hightower is a nice play. Jordy and Maclin are in similar situations where they aren't the top dogs on their teams but are still heavily involved in the offense. I'd venture a guess that Maclin does slightly better this week.

Id go Hightower, Ryan and Maclin
dont lose faith in Ryan just yet and orton looked terrible so forced last week I see Tebow or Quinn getting put in very soon
Maclin is still number 2 and as ryan bounces back vick will have to throw there are tooo many WRs in GB to trust Nelson id wait a little bit they still have james jones, Jennings and Driver and now cobb lol

Thanks you both for the input, appreciate it. I think I'll do Hightower, Maclin, and Ryan. Speaking of Orton, I feel he'll be replaced soon as well...and Matt Hasselbeck just got dropped by another play in my league. Should I drop Orton now and pick him up?

Well, Orton and Hasselbeck have same bye week, but the important thing is who their opponents are when Ryan is on his Week 8 bye. I'd pick up Hasselbeck since he's playing the Colts. Orton (assuming he's still the starter) will be facing the Lions D.
