ROS: Manningham or D. Nelson in PPR?.....WHIR

Postby GeneralTsou » Thu Sep 29, 2011 3:19 pm

I need help at WR after losing Kenny Britt for the season.

Brandon Jacobs is my 5th RB so I am trying to build depth at WR

I can get Mario Manningham from one team

or

I can get David Nelson from another

This is a 12-team PPR.

Who projects to have a better fantasy season?

originally Manningham.... but after getting a concussion early, and the giants struggling to get the passing game going, Nelson may be the better pickup in a PPR league.


u cant go wrong either way.... IMO Manningham has homerun upside each game, but can also give u nothing.
Neslon may be a consistent source of 5-70 a game with TD upside.

I'd say Nelson.
Manningham looks like he might get a concussion every time he gets tackled.
I like the 6'5 Nelson with Fitz at QB over Eli's WRs

How long can we wait for Manninghams 'potential' to finally turn into actual production.

exactly, the PPR element makes this a hard decision. From what I read, the slot receiver in Chan Gailey's offense gets targeted alot but Fitzpatrick started off hot last year too and then cooled down. Nelson has been targeted more and caught more balls per game than Manningham. Some of this can be attributed to Eli Manning's poor play in the first 2 weeks. We all saw what the guy opposite Nicks can do (see Victor Cruz week 3). Those could have easily been Manningham's stat line if he had played. I don't think the concussion is anything to worry about. Suffering one concussion does not make you more susceptible to suffering another one.

I have an offer for Manningham for Jacobs right now that I can accept and I am pretty sure I can get D. Nelson as well.

Who would you rather have in a PPR for the rest of the year?

I get what you are saying but he did finish last season very strong averaging over 100+ yds a game for the last 3 games with a TD in each. I just don't know if Fitz can keep it up

I would rather have Nelson. Hes completely healthy and on a better team it appears.

I would rather have Nelson. Buffalos offense is showin no signs of turning it around, and Manning spreads it out too much for my liking.

this is such a hard decision. So you expect Fitzpatrick to keep this up?

My thought process is Manningham should be on the field more than Nelson and with Nicks drawing all the attention, and Steve Smith and Boss shipped away, Manningham is setup. Manning mostly throws to his #1 and #2 receivers.

Nelson plays the slot in Chan Gailey's spread offense so he will see plenty of targets. Seems like Fitz spreads the ball around. Stevie and Chandler are getting all the TD goodness.

You could make an argument for both
