Bad idea to start 5 guys from the same game

Postby Balcatim » Sun Oct 16, 2011 9:32 am

So is it a bad idea to start 5 guys from a single game regardless of who they are?

Here's who I have going today
Cam Newton
Michael Turner
DeAngelo Williams
Greg Olsen
Roddy White
All of whom play in the same game today. Is this a mistake? The only real option I have is to play shonn greener or Cedric benson but Williams finally had a big week last time out. Your thoughts?

I would replace Greene over Williams... I think NYJ will run all day against Miami....

Why not? But in all seriousness, i would not start Williams. He has one good game and is still splitting carries with Stewart and losing goaline carries to Newton. I would go with Benson.

Ok so we're all agreed to not start DWilly but still split on greene or benson. Im hesitant to start greener because I get burned every time I do. But so far leaning towards him.

Go with your gut ... Benson is likely going to have similar stats to Greene.

FWIW, i did this last week during the bills/eagles match up, and don't know that i'd recommend it if you can avoid it. however, if it's a close game and high scoring it'll work out as it did with my team last week. i will say that it is fun watching though!

help w/ mine if you have a chance
