QB Conundrum.... WHIR always

Postby MiggyT » Sun Oct 23, 2011 12:01 am

Standard scoring (1 pt/25 yds passing, 1 pt/10 yds rushing, 6 pts Pass TD, 6 pts Rush TD, -2 INT/Fumble)

Between Jay Cutler (@TB) and Matt Ryan (@Det), who would you start ?? I also have Tim Tebow (@Mia) but I have him him virtually locked in during his return to the gator area. However, pick 2 of the 3 QB's, please.

Ryan doesn't play well on the road, however Ford Field's turf should neutralize that effect somewhat. I'm more hesitant about his awful OL handling that crowd and the dline wreaking havoc. I feel that Cutler has more upside to throw TD's this week. I'm on the fence though

Don't forget to leave a link and I'll be sure to help you out!

I agree with Tebow being a lock this week. As for Cutler or Ryan, damn that's a toss up. My gut says Ryan. No valid reason ... just a gut feeling.

Thanks for the great explanation for mine.

It depends if your league penalizes for INT's. If so, go wtih Tebow and Matty Ice. If not go with Cutler and Matty Ice. Tebow scares me either way. He could score 2 TD on the ground AND throw 3 INT's. Cutler turns the ball over too much.

Tebow and Cutler, Tebow for sure, Miami's D is suspect to say the least. Cutler has been getting decent protection as the offensive line has gotten time to gel a little. Not big on Ryan, he's a good NFL QB, but a poor fantasy QB. Atlanta has focused more on the run as of late, but this may change due to the Detroit line, but I still think Cutler is a better play over Ryan, and Tebow seems to be a nobrainer.

Help with mine?

DO NOT SIT RYAN!!!

Yeh, he has not look that great and seems to be managing games rather than going all out, but not this week. 300/2 is his floor this week in DET. It will be a shoot out and for those he think not, think again.

Ryan is a top 6 QB this week to me, start him with confidence.



Good luck to ya!

Help me start/sit

Ryan and Tebow... TB is schizophrenic, they could let him put up 5 TDs or shut him down completely.. Tebow better risk against worst team IMO.

My dilemma:

Sure, cutler has looked good, but he is playing across seas and how can you even try to sit Ryan. I know he hasn't had quality starts ever week. But Gonzo looks good this week, and RodWhite has to break out.

I pick Tebow and Ryan


Thanks for the help with mine.

Thanks for your help.

I would go Tebow and Ryan. I don't think Cutler got enough sleep before todays game since the Bears arrived Friday night . . . so history says.

I like Tebow and Cutler. Tebow is obviously high risk/reward but if you're going to start him Miami would be a pretty good team to do it against. Ryan has not played well this season and I think Atl will continue to focus on the run. Det is solid against the pass but their run d is shaky. Cutler has played well this season he has a good mathcup and has thrown less picks than Ryan.
