Who to start at QB/RB? WHIR 100%

Postby SolvusAnima » Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:53 pm

Alright guys, here's the question!

Who do I start at QB week 6 in a standard scoring league?

Matt Stafford (vs SF) or Ben Roethlisberger (vs JAG)

Roethlisberger just destroyed TEN and looked really good while he did it. 5 TD's last week is pretty impressive and is the major reason why I'm having to think about this one in the first place.
I've started Stafford over Big Ben all the games up to now and he hasn't let me down so far (only last week did Roethlisberger to better than Stafford). Another factor to consider in this one is that Stafford is going up against the SF D, which is really good. Dunno, what are your thoughts on this one?

Pick 2 to start at RB week 6

Steven Jackson (@GB), James Starks (vs STL), Jahvid Best (vs SF)

Right now, I am leaning to start Best and Starks. Starks has a really good match up vs STL, and he's been getting more touches than Grant, as well as being more productive with his opporunities, so the RB situation at GB doesn't bother me too much. Where the choice is tough as between Jackson and Best. I'm leaning more towards Best because even though SF has a monster run defense, I feel he'll be more involved in the game because of the DET passing attack, whereas I feel that STL will be behind early in the game, and they will be forced to pass more. Not just that, but GB's run defense isn't all that bad either.

What do you guys think?

As always, drop a link and I'll help you out too!

I'd ride the Roethlisberger train. You're right, SF has a very salty DEF. I think the Lion wins, but fantasy-wise, you're going to get more points from Big Ben against a suspect JAX DEF.

I'm in a similar situation for RB. I like Starks matchup. I don't like Best's matchup against DET, but SJax has just been too inconsistent this year. Don't expect similar fantasy numbers this week for Best like he posted last week, but should still fare better than SJax.


Good luck!

Thanks for the help with mine.

Start the following guys:

Stafford - He qualifies as a must start every week unless you own Rodgers, Brady, Newton, or Brees.
SJax - He is fully healthy again and is beast when he's at 100%.
Best - He's been up and down so far this year but he doesn't split carries like Starks does with Grant.

Good luck!

Matt Stafford (vs SF) or Ben Roethlisberger (vs JAG)

I would stick with Stafford. SF's run D is really good so Stafford would need to throw.

Pick 2 to start at RB week 6

Steven Jackson (@GB), James Starks (vs STL), Jahvid Best (vs SF)

I would go with SJ and Best. SJ is also involved in the passing game. Best going against SF D is not comforting but Best also will be able to snare a few passes. Yes Starks has a good match up but when you have SJ and Best, I would start them .

Definitely roll with Stafford, he's got multiple TDs in every game this year. Gotta ride that hot streak.

RB: Jackson and Best.

There is no way that I could sit Stafford. He has been too good on a scoring machine of an offense, with Megatron to throw to. Definitely stafford.

At RB, I would rank them:
Starks--by far the best matchup
Best--don't like the matchup and would have pretty low expectations, but like him better than SJax
SJax--bad, bad, bad offense, going to be behind early...simply a poor option this week and the rest of the year, IMO.
