Washington, Branch, or Nelson?

Postby lamoac » Tue Sep 27, 2011 10:54 pm

Last week I went with Branch, who laid a goose-egg while his teammate Wes Welker registered 16 reception for over 200 yards and a TD.
I picked up Washington after Britt went down.

Now my choices for my #3 WR are: Deion Branch, David Nelson & Nate Washington.

I'm leaning towards Washington. What do you think?

I'd probably go with Washington myself, Hasselbeck is going to be looking his way quite a lot. Whether or not Branch's stinker was a fluke, I'm just not playing a WR who puts a 0 up on my scoreboard the next week if I have other comparable options.

Post matchups! Less work for people, more likely to reply. Also, throwing a WHIR in there helps.

Nelson is the safest bet for points. Washington has the big play potential, though he is going to be covered by a decent corner this week. Branch should have a comeback game this week, and I also wouldn't worry about starting him.

I'm going to say Nelson, with Washington a close second.

ill tell you why you have 30 views and 1 response ... you need to help everyone out in return ... type "WHIR" in your title (Will Help In Return) and you will get more people eager to help you out. then when someone gives you some advice and leaves a link to their thread, go help them out and that completes the Circle of Trust! lol

anyways ... I would honestly go with Nelson, on top of the fact that he has a good matchup this week, you gotta realize that he is neck & neck with the Bills #1 WR (S.Johnson) with 20 receptions and like 250 yards. I wouldnt play Nate until I see how he performs withouth Britt taking all the coverage away from him. Branch is usually a good pick, but you have to realize that there are a lot more mouths to feed over there, so he will never get as many looks as Nelson does or Washington will.

Best of Luck!
