Drop Flacco for Big Ben?......WHIR

Postby GeneralTsou » Wed Oct 05, 2011 9:09 am

12-team PPR 6pts. for pass TDs

My current QBs are Flacco and Sanchez (I know it's sad)

Flacco is on a bye so I picked up Sanchez as a bye-week fill-in.

Ben Roethlisberger was dropped. Should I pick him up? The problem is I wouldn't start Ben this week but see future value in him. I would have to essentially drop Flacco for Big Ben

RB: Jamaal Charles, Darren Sproles, Knowshon Moreno, Montee Ball

the thing is Sanchez is just a fillin for this week while Flacco is on a bye and I wouldn't want to start Big Ben this week

Another solution I see is to drop Ford for Big Ben. I know your WR core would be thin seeing as you only have 4, but Ford shouldn't be rostered at this point anyway so I would go ahead and drop him. Then next week you can drop Sanchez and pick up the best WR available on the WW.

I would keep Flacco over Big Ben. Neither of them have been very consistent thus far, but I would still prefer to have Flacco. From what I've heard, Pit's O-line is full of injuries and is doing a pretty bad job protecting Ben. Also, Flacco has had two very good games while Ben has just been average at best.
