Manning Over Rivers?!?! WHIR!

Postby jackkerouac86 » Thu Sep 29, 2011 10:54 am

Eli Manning is predicted to have a huge week over a weak Arizona secondary. Rivers is expected to have a breakout game at some point (his numbers have been pedestrian so far), and this week he takes on Miami at home. Weak against the pass, but Rivers always seems to struggle against the AFC East, especially early. Would you take that chance?? Rivers scored a whopping 6 (!) points for me last week as he played through injury, and I still somehow won.

I had some top-tier receivers on the waiver wire due to my league dropping them after early injuries, so I jumped due to their upside (Manningham and Colston). I dropped D. Nelson and E. Decker to get them, just figured they'd be better long-term.

QB: Eli Manning, Philip Rivers
RB: Jahvid Best, Willis McGahee, Mike Tolbert
WR: Marques Colston, Vincent Jackson, Jordy Nelson, Mario Manningham
TE: Rob Gronkowski, Jason Witten
W/R: Darren Sproles
K: Steven Gostkowski
D: Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, everyone!

Miami's secondary is just as bad as AZ. So with that said, you drafted Rivers long before Eli....get my point?

Haha, thanks for your help, guys. I've been kind of second-guessing that one all week. Eli was available on waivers and due to a strong showing last week I'd figure I'd grab him for depth.

Any tips or suggestions on the rest of the lineup? It's risky to assume Manningham or Colston will be healthy and productive this week, but I just see them having so much more upside over some of the hot-ticket waiver wire WRs.

Rivers is your play this week ... he is at home coming off a poor performance that he is going to make up for!

Best of Luck!

Umm no. Rivers has been a disappointment for me this year so far as well, but he will be a top QB by the end of the year. This means he has some ground to make up, which bodes well if you already have a few wins under your belt. Start him and don't worry about it.
