Starks Vs. Ridley WHIR 100%

Postby Tony Micelli » Sun Oct 09, 2011 1:49 am

10 Man PPR league.

Bonus points for long receptions, runs TD receptions, TD Runs

Who would you rather start?

With Grant coming back, I'm very hesitant to start Starks. However, ATL Defense isn't great and Starks should get some touches .. in what will probably be a high scoring game.

And now that Woodhead isn't playing .. Ridley looks that much more good to play. The Jets Run D has surprisingly been susceptible to the run and they've given up 6 rushing TD's. I know he will split with BJGE, but again, he should get a decent amount of touches too.

Starks is the more reliable pick, Ridley is more of a gamble with upside. I'd go with Starks, personally. He's in the better situation.

ill take ridley, i just dont trust starts will get enough carries. Grant looked good and got most of the carries in the last game he played. Plus i think the patriots will be playing with the lead so ridley should get touches...close one, but ill take ridley here

I'd roll the dice and go with Ridley. With Woodheads injury, he should get half the carries, along with some receptions. His upside looks bright as he is producing at a high level. I say take the chance. THx for helping me.

I say Starks, Grant needs to prove himself after the injury and listed as probable so might be takin' it easy on him this week.

I'd go with Starks. I don't expect the Patriots to run the ball very much against the Jets so I don't Ridley is a solid option. He also has to compete with other backs for carries, too, so it's not like he will be getting every carry where Starks will not.

I like Ridley, I don't trust Starks at all in any of the leagues I have him.

I think Starks is your better bet here. He's an up and coming back and the future of the GB run game. The pats are gonna throw throw throw against NYJ who is gonna come out gunning against NE. Expect a week run game from the pats. Starks takes more and more from grant every game.

Help?
