Emmanuel Sanders or Jabar Gaffney? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Fri Oct 28, 2011 6:03 pm

I'm currently starting Jabar Gaffney, but should I drop him for Emmanuel Sanders instead? Who do you think will have the better week 8? Or should I drop DeMaryius for Sanders?

Starting Roster:
QB - Andy Dalton
WR - Miles Auston
WR - DeMaryius Thomas
WR - Jabar Gaffney
RB - Steven Jackson
RB - Daniel Thomas
TE - Jason Witten
WR/RB/TE - DeMarco Murray

Bench:
Roddy White
Matt Ryan
Greg Jennings
Mike Williams (TB)
LeGarrette Blount

I just picked up Gaffney to start this week. I think he's the better option, as he could become the no. 1 guy in DC while Moss is out. With Wallace and Brown and Miller taking looks away from Sanders, I just trust Gaffney to get more passes thrown his way.

Lend a hand?

I am in the exact same boat. I am leaning towards Gaffney, simply because he consistently gets 60 yards a week. With Moss out he should get more looks. My only concern is that now he'll be matched up now with the #1 corners.

Yeah that's what I was worried about too, good thing it's just the Bills.

Gaffney is safest choice. Brown/Sanders is hard to predict.

Your golden! Gaffney is a solid start this week, and worth holding on to. For no reason I'm calling a huge week from thomas, but regardless of my bias I believe he's the best start.

Wow you're in bye week hell huh? lol

Yeah, go with Gaffney. He's at worst the #2 option in DC now and the #1 WR.

I would stick with Gaffney. Remember that while Gaffney will receive a lot of attention, Fred Davis will also receive his fair share, which will help Gaffney.

If Hines Ward is out (likely), Sanders moves up to the No. 3 spot, but there won't be much for him in terms of targets as they will go to Wallace and Brown. Remember that the Pats run defense is not great either and I suspect that the Steelers will attempt to control the tempo with the run game.

I Would keep gafney in too. I think he has very limited ability/upside, but he will still get number one targets. Sanders is battling to be the second option. I just couldn't recommend starting him.

Thanks on mine.
