I'm thinking of benching Brady... for Newton....

Brady is playing the Jets, albeit without Cromartie but it is still the Jets nonetheless.

Newton is playing the Saints.. which I can see a shootout in the making.

Passing/Running TDs for QBs in my league are 6 points.

Passing yards = 1 point per 25 yards

Rushing yards = 1 point per 10 yards

and... we give bonus points for length of TD.

I may be going crazy.......

That is a tough one. While Brady is Brady, Newton has been on fire, and like you said, it'll probably be a shootout against NO. If you're a gambling man, go with Newton. If I were in your place, I'd probably start Newton.

You're right.... but....

Last week Newton outscored Brady by 17. Just a thought...

# 1 rule in fantasy is never bench your Studs. However you have 2 Studs which makes the decision much harder. That being said I would still go with Brady. That's just me.

as mentioned in a previous post...

Teams playing the Jets have a total of 752 passing yards, 2 passing TDs, and 6INTS

Teams playing the saints have a total of 1125 passing yards, 8 passing TD, and 2INTS

~50% more passing yards, 4x the passing TDs and 1/3 of the ints, I think NO is the defense to go up against this week if choosing between two studs. I know its a gamble, but I'm facing #1 in the league and need some miracles.

I'm going with Cam!

They are both playing well but Cam is not Brady. Cam is still a rookie and we have a small sample size to go off of (4 games). Brady, superbowls, mvps, future hall of famer. kinda hard to bech him reguardless of the matchup. go with Brady.

I would take Newton in this match up just bc Rex Ryan built his team to beat Brady does everyone forget what Jets did to Brady in the playoffs, also you got the best corner in the game taking away wes. I expect the Pats to run a lot more with Ridley this week and I see Newton throwing early and often and running. Side note why are you not trying to trade one of them out?

I'd go with Newton on this one. New Orleans has let so many passing yards on them, Newton will go crazy on them. Brady is going against Revis and Cromartie.

Help me out.
