Bradshaw vs Maclin

Postby Pitfan2782 » Fri Sep 23, 2011 9:53 am

8-Team PPR. Here's my roster right now:

QB: Philip Rivers
RB: Ray Rice
RB: Ben Tate
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Mike Wallace
TE: Jason Witten
K: Stephen Gostowski
D: Tennesse

Do I go with Bradshaw against the Eagles, or Maclin against the Giants? The Falcons ran all over the Eagles last week, and I think they'll try to do the same. Maclin had a monster game, and I'm not sure I want to bench him right now. Who do I start for my flex?

I would probably go with Bradshaw. Phillys run defense is horrible so Bradshaw should benefit from that. I really like Maclin, but I don't know if I see a repeat from last week, especially since DJax was out for portions of the game. I actually have them both on my team and am playing Bradshaw as my RB1 and Maclin as my flex. Hope this helps bro.

Their run defense is low ranked. but it is a good defense who are very capable of stopping the run if they need too. in their 1st 2 weeks they had St.Louis and the Falcons, 2 teams in which they decided stopping the pass was more important. they did good on Bradford and despite Ryans 4 TD's it was not easy for him . this week they are going against a Giant team who has already committed to running the ball and Manning who despite a solid TD game yesterday he has not looked real good. I don't think Philly will gameplan the same against the Giants as they did the others and will do alot better against the run. Plus Jacobs is getting a bigger role it looks and with maclin is the go to go when Vick gets blitzed + rz. I am gonna go with maclin here. I am sure he will have about the same performance as last week. The other thing to keep watching is Steve Smith(Eagles), I am sure they are going to start using him more.
