Crowded WR staff… Need Help! Pick 3

Postby jfreyesrd » Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:52 pm

After the start of the "bye weeks" period needed to make adjustments to my roster, now I've got a bunch of WRs and need help deciding who's going to start for the next week.

Please pick 3:
* Roddy White (@Ind, 2nd worst defense against WR)
* Sydney Rice (@Dal, 11th best defense against WR)
* Deion Branch (vs. NYG, 10th worst defense against WR)
* Darrius Heyward-Bey (vs. Den, 3rd worst defense against WR)]
* Kevin Walter (vs. Cle, 3rd best defense against WR)
* Michael Crabtree (@Was, 8th best defense against WR)
* Laurent Robinson (vs. Sea, 12th worst defense against WR)

I guess Roddy White is the only must-start here, any help would be appreaciated.

I think you have to start White and Branch. Your 3rd option is tricky.

Rice- Seattle's QB's are terrible but they will be playing from behind.
Heyward-Bey- How much will Palmer progress is up in the air.
Walter- Houston will pound the ball with Foster and Tate. Plus Walter is not the top threat in the air.
Crabtree- The Niners are running too effectivly to throw the ball a lot so his numbers won't be great and he probably won't score a TD.
Robinson- 4th option at WR behind Austin, Bryant and Witten, is not a good option to go with.

All that said I would lean towards playin Rice.

I would clearly pick White and Heyward-Bey. Then it's between Branch and Robinson. I personally would go Branch but either way is reasonable.

Thanks for help with mine.

Roddy, DHB, and Rice. I don't like Branch because Brady spreads the ball around so much. Rice will play well whether it's Tavaris or Whitehurst.

I like White, DHB and Crabs. I feel like Crabs is finally breaking out. If A. Smith can find his hands downfield as he's getting open more and more often, he's going to be a beast.

Help?

I agree with this. Roddy/DHB/Rice. Rice will play good ONLY if T Jackson is playing. Whitehurst is terrible.
