Matt Ryan or Flacco week 6? whir

Postby rweiss73 » Thu Oct 13, 2011 12:04 pm

wondering what everyone thinks. I have Ryan starting for now. But our league's projections show Flacco as like a 1 pt favorite.

PPR league -- 1 ppr

Matt Ryan vs. CAR
Flacco vs. HOU

thanks, whir as always

You asked my question for me, so I'll be happy to give you my 2 cents and a bump. I want to hear other opinions, but to me I don't see why Ryan is ranked higher by a majority of rankers. He has 2 single digit point games, one 4 TD game where he didn't throw for many yards, and a really disappointing start against GB, from a real life and fantasy perspective.

Flacco, on the other hand, has had 2 very good games against tough defenses but, admittedly, 2 duds of his own. Houston is missing Mario Williams to get to Flacco and Matt Ryan will be without Julio Jones. Flacco's most recent bad game came against the Jets who should have one of the best pass defenses in the league and the Ravens still managed to score 34+ in their 3rd game this year ( out of 4). Also, Flacco has Rice who can score in the passing game. I could see it going either way, but my gut says to go with Flacco.

I will post your link as if it were my quesion to try to get WHIR replies.

I agree with GreatOne and ATL is going to run the ball often against CAR. On top of that Flacco had two weeks to prepare for HOU. I think both QB's are decent plays and aren't going to be significantly different but I'd go with Flacco on this one.

Go with Flacco. he is a safer bet. Ryan is missing J. Jones.

Thanks for the help.

I like Matt Ryan as a QB better but this week I think Flacco might get a few more chances to throw it, with a flock of speedy receivers to boot. I spose I'd go with Flacco but I think the margin will be minimal.

Thanks for helping GreatOne

Hmmm my post got deleted somehow. Oh well. Go with Ryan! He plays much betterat home and his Defense will allow point so he will be throwing all day. This game looks to be high scoring soI like Ryan.

Thanks rweiss and CBM for helping with mine.
I think Flacco has the upside this week playing at home.

I agree with most: Flacco seems to have the better upside this week.

Agreed. Flacco @ home after a bye with NO Mario Williams in the HOU lineup to put pressure on him and all his WRs and Ray Rice healthy? I'm going with Flacco, hands down. Both options are decent...but I am starting Flacco in my league (over Matt Schaub). Good luck and thanks for the help with mine...
