Marshawn Lynch or James Starks

Postby ampant » Wed Sep 28, 2011 5:39 pm

Lynch is the undisputed non-RBBC back in one of the worst offenses in the league.

James Starks is maybe the 1a or 1b guy on a very good pass 1st offense who is splitting time.

You have to drop one of them . . . which one?

I am thinking Lynch . . . even though the thought of dropping a starting NFL RB seems crazy. I would never start him unless he absolutely blew up, which isn't likely. With Starks though, if Grant got injured he could instantly become a solid RB2 type guy.

10 Team money leagues. 0.5 ppr

QBs - Roethlisberger, Grossman
RBs - Peterson, Mendenhall, F Jones, Wells, Lynch, Starks
WRs - VJax, S Johnson, M Williams, M Thomas
TEs - Gronkowski, Davis
D/ST - CHI
K - Cundiff

Lynch...especially since Starks is starting next week. He could break out against the Broncos.

I'll second Starks being more valuable than Lynch, though really, I'd try to swing a 2-for-1 trade somewhere to get better value out of consolidating your roster.

BOLD PICKS FOR 2013
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

i'm not a big james starks fan in the long run, and this is fairly close. Unless you have to keep a backup defense or start 2 qb's, I wouldn't cut either back. I'd cut the Raiders D or Grossman first.

However, of the two backs, starks has more upside if he can get the starting job, so i'd cut lynch as well.

Seattles offense is terrible. Drop Lynch and keep Starks.

Yeah. This was a toughie for me. I can see Lynch being decent for maybe 3 games, but not a better choice than any of the other dudes I have.

FYI, forgot to edit OAK out of my Roster. I am basically dropping both Grossman and Lynch/Starks to pick up Aaron Hernandez and Mario Manningham.

I couldn't leave Hernandez out there, even though I own Gronkowski. I plan on trading Hernandez away once he is back, and so I want to keep Davis for byes or insurance against a Gronkowski injury.
