Burleson or AJ Green? WHIR

Postby latraffic » Wed Sep 21, 2011 4:37 pm

Number 2 WR spot - Burleson in MINN or AJ Green at home against SF? Non-PPR. Standard Yahoo scoring. Help me out. WHIR
Thank God for Football Season.

Burleson for sure in a PPR league, but even in non-PPR, I see him putting up some nice yardage. The Lions pass as much as or more than anyone in the NFL and Burleson gets them into scoring position. So yardage for Burleson sets him apart from Green for me.

Totally agree, Burleson should put up some big numbers this week, even though he will be sharing with Megatron. Minn secondary is weak and it will get tested again this week.

I'm going to have to disagree with the others and say Green is the play here. No team this year has had WR score more FF points than San Fran. No team.....Burleson has done a nice job but he simply is not the goto guy in Detroit, and although the Vikings have given up the 27th most FF points to WRs I still like Green better.

A.J. Green is the #1 target in Cinci and Dalton has shown he is capable. A.J. Green had at least 14 targets last week as well as a score. He also scored week 1. It may not be Miles Austin like against SF this week, but Green is going to put up nice numbers.

I also like Burleson. He gets a lot of action with megatron on the other side.

I'd go with Burleson - ina PPR league, he's getting a lot of targets and receptions and I think they are for real this year...

I have both recievers and am starting AJ over Burleson. AJ has been top 12 WR this year. CInci will always be playing from behind and Dalton and AJ have hit it off the first two weeks. Go Green!!
