Drop Eli for Flacco, Hasselbeck or Grossman?

Postby TroutSeason » Sat Sep 17, 2011 11:19 pm

So I have Schaub starting in Week 2, but I'm unsure about my current back up Eli Manning,
Standard League 8 teams

FA are:

Flacco
Hasselbeck
Grossman
Campbell
Henne
McCoy
Sanchez

Any ideas or should I stick it out with Eli?

Flacco or Grossman

Flacco is doing great this year and should be stable in getting you points, but with Rice being the core of their offense, Flacco will never get you high score like Bree, Rodger, Brady or any of those elite QB team.

Grossman is less stable and haven't proved enough to be solid starting QB, but seeing his play on week1 and how WAS doing, he do have potential to become top8 QB, but also come with the risk of bust

you can also try Henne, but i just can't see Henne repeat his week1 performance

if you already have better team compare to other teams in your league, stick with Flacco.
if you need better QB to catchup with other teams in your league, then gamble on Grossman

Eli or Flacco proven options. Despite inconsistency and what not, Eli proves year in year out to produce top 10 numbers. Stick with him for now. For that bye week I would look at who A) gives you the best chance to win that week and also factor in playoff matchups.
