Need advice on WR3 and K - WHIR

Postby cashcity » Thu Oct 13, 2011 6:44 pm

My team

QB
Drew Brees (TB)

WR
Greg Jennings (StL)
Hakeem Nicks (Buf)
Marques Colston (TB)

RB
Matt Forte (Min)
Maurice Jones-Drew (Pit)

TE
Jason Witten (NE)

K
Jason Hanson (SF)

DEF
New Orleans

BN

TE - Scott Chandler (NYG)
RB - Ryan Mathews (Bye)
WR- A.J. Green (Ind)
WR - Percy Harvin (Chi)
QB - Eli Manning (Buf)
K - Dan Carpenter (NYJ)

Alright, well I'm definitely going with Breezy over Manning, although Eli's been real nice the last few weeks. I'll also probably play Jennings and Nicks, but I'm considering starting AJ Green over Colston. I feel like he's going to have a great game against Indy(sadly, as they're my favorite team) and Colston still hasn't been at 100% and even if he does get back to full strength Brees has so many options and Dalton doesn't really. Forte and Jones-Drew are locked in also with Mathews on a bye. My other concern is with my Kickers. I know that the Lions are going to play well against SF and Hanson's going to get a lot of PATs, but Carpenter will probably see some FGA's due to the Jets ability to completely shut down Miami. However, I seriously doubt Miami's ability to even get into Carpenter's range against the Jets with Henne out.

So I guess it boils down to:
Colston or Green
Hanson or Carpenter

Go with Green for sure. He has an excellent matchup and Colston is surrounded by other options and it is anyone's guess as to who Brees will go to on a consistent basis besides Graham.

I would stick with Hanson. Coming from a Dolphins fan, you hit the nail on head when you said that Miami will struggle to get into FG range.

When deciding what kicker to use you just pick the guy with the better offense period. Dont get into thinking a team is good but should get shut down and that will lead to FG's. The choice here is Hanson. Plain and simple.

Oh, and yeah Green WAY over Colston. Not even close.

I also think I'm going to drop Chandler and pick up a new D. What do you guys think of these available DEFs?

San Francisco (Det)
Buffalo (NYG)
Houston (Bal)
Washington (Phi)
Tennessee (Bye)
Cincinnati (IND)

in pure numbers san francisco but their season hasn't been too hard so far but they're still good as hell so that's what i'm thinking.

Nice team. I would start A.J. and Hanson. Pick up SF Def.
