WR3 choice - WHIR!!!

Postby mtculp » Wed Nov 02, 2011 10:44 am

Starting Mike Wallace and Roddy White. Need to choose number 3 from:

Antonio Brown v. BAL (2 WRs from same team and BAL D),
Jabbar Gafney v. SF (one decent prod. week then didley v. BUF last week)
Plaxico Burress @ BUF (one HUGE week but didley prior),
Early Doucet v. STL (great matchup and getting looks with Fitz blanketed)

6 pts./TD; 1 pt./20 yds.; Non-PPR

I'd go Brown with Burress not far behind. Both are going up against tough defenses (actually probably almost equal in production at this point) in their own division. Difference is Big Ben and the Steelers offense are just better. Even if Ward does play 100% Brown has already become a consistent target. Gaffney and Doucet are less likely to get touchdowns and you need tds with that scoring structure.

Thanks for your help, I think I'm too pissed at BJGE from last week to start him again though haha

If Ward is out again I'd definitely go Brown. Otherwise I might go Burress.

Even if Ward is not out I would start Brown. Brown now has more targets than Wallace for the year and obviously Ben is getting more chemistry with Antonio.

Pitt wont be able to run the ball against the Ravens so it'll be another pass fest.

Doucet's a good pick here. Stl defense is not great aside from last week's surprise vs. NO. Despite Kolb's problems, Doucet's been decent.

I agree that you should start A. Brown. I have a feeling it will be a pass happy game so having both is a good thing

So true, otherwise, I really think Doucet's consistency and team make him a viable WR3.

I think is a toss coin between Brown and Doucet, with a slim advantage toward Doucet for facing StL.

Pls, help with mine

I also think its a close call with Brown and Early here for me .I would probably go with Early as he has had a nice touchdown streak and I like his match up.
