Tough opponent, who will win?

Postby IanJones » Thu Oct 27, 2011 11:17 pm

I'm in a 12 team PPR league, who do you think will win this week?

Team 1
QB - Newton
RB - Bradshaw
RB - Sproles
WR - Boldin
WR - Washington
Flex - Murray
TE - Fred Davis
K - Nugent
DST - Bengals

Team 2
QB - Brady
RB - Gore
RB - Hardesty
WR - Bowe
WR - Stevie J
Flex - Maclin
TE - Hernandez
K - Kasay
DST - Ravens

Team 2 is pretty stacked but has a lot of tough matchups this week. CBS projections are 116-131, Huddle is 141-133.5. Let me know your thoughts.

Yeah because I am a Pats fan I am obviously favoring team 2... also because the only spots team 1 has the edge is at the Flex and #2 RB slot. Team 2 has the advantage EVERYWHERE else, tell me where I am wrong(Gore/Bradshaw can be considered even though).

I think Newton against MIN could score just as much as Brady. Boldin is playing ARI and Washington is playing IND, 2 of the worst secondaries in the league. Bowe is playing against SD, Stevie against WAS, and Maclin against DAL, 3 teams that have top 10 secondaries.

Clearly YOUR biased because you own team 1... That's fine if we disagree on who will win, just don't post asking for other people's thoughts on something and then accuse them of being biased because they disagree with you.

That's totally fine if you are for the other team, I was just giving some reasonings to see if they change your mind at all. I'll tell you Sunday night who wins.

Well, that is great for your team and that victory should help. I also think that the team favored to win can always lose, as evidenced by the Rams pounding the Saints as well as a team in my FFootball league that was favored to win by a whopping 42 points this week, and yet lost his matchup this week (down 15, and team that is leading still has one to play)! If I had to choose again, I would still pick his team despite the result.

You have to look into the matchups and not just the names listed. He definitely has bigger name players but everyone but Gore had a tough opponent.
