Battle, Manningham, or P. Thomas?

Postby HotHandz305 » Fri Nov 04, 2011 3:56 pm

So at flex I was going to start Moreno over Battle but with McGahee possibly playing I think neither of the two is a good bet this week since McGahee may still not be 100% but he would cut into carries for Moreno.

I am left with starting at flex either Jackie Battle, Mario Manningham, or Pierre Thomas if I can get him off waivers which I probably can.

Battle would be great if he wasn't against a decent Miami run D.

Manningham looks to be #1 with Nicks out against a weak NE secondary though not sure if Nicks out helps our hurts Manningham.

P. Thomas is up against a pretty generous TB D and Ingram is ruled out so its basically him and Sproles.

Who to start at flex?

I normally hate WRs at flex but Manningham might be better than P Thomas this week.

I feel the same way about starting receivers over RB's, but Manningham is so hard to ignore this week. I wouldn't worry too much about his #1 status affecting his numbers. Eli has officially knocked the dust off his throwing arm and he's on. Besides that, Victor Cruz is even more dangerous IMO and Belichick is smart enough to know this. Coverage will be on Cruz not Manningham. (ya i said it)

Manningham. Said and done. This is coming from a Giants fan and watching the steelers annihilate the patriots secondary, I have no doubt that Manning will get Manningham the ball. Jackie Batle is garbage is my opinion and Pierre Thomas, while getting Ingram's carries will still be picking up scraps from Sproles.
