Jeremy Maclin or Jordy Neslon in WR/RB, WHIR!

Postby The Chauncellor » Thu Nov 10, 2011 1:30 pm

Hey guys,

MACLIN OR J. NELSON(gb)

My team is pretty stacked, but I can't decide who to put in my Flex spot this week...

M. Stafford
C. Johnson
G. Jennings
M. Turner
R. Mendenhall
A. Gates
J. MACLIN(eagles) or J. NELSON(packers)
M. Crosby
Pitt Def.

I know it probably doesnt matter that much who I choose, but both have easy matchups this week. Maclin probably has a better chance considering the amount of looks he gets, but having Nelson as a back up to Jennings in case he cant get the ball has had its benefits before.

Let me know what you guys think and I will help back,

Thanks,

Mike

I'd go with Maclin. I think they'll both put up similar yards, but Maclin has a slight edge to score TD.

Help me?

Seems like Nelson is an every other week kind of guy. So I'd say you are better off with Maclin who is really the Eagles #1 Rec.

Also always leary of starting two guys from the same team and same position. Seems like one always suffers.

I know what you mean by two guys, same position, same team. Normally I wouldnt do this. However, it seems that when one is down, the other blows up. They have been good for about 25 pts between the two of them every game. Thanks for the input though. Nelson hasnt done much against Minn. and Maclin looks realy good against Ariz. Keep em commin

Nelson has yet to put up back to back great games, so staying with that trend, start Maclin.

Thanks for help on mine

Here's a disagreement and the statistics to back it up (ESPN standard league stats)

Nelson
REC YDS TD PTS
AVG 3.625 71.25 0.625 10.5
STDDEV 1.69 31.82 0.52 6.12

Maclin REC YDS TD PTS
AVG 5.5 75.75 0.5 10
STDDEV 3.55 44.68 0.76 8.32

Nelson has a slightly higher point average, but a markedly smaller deviation in all statistics which speaks to his consistency in scoring at a moderate pace. Maclin had 1 big game 13/171/2/29pts at ATL early in the season that skewed his totals. With an average game for his in place of that outlier, Nelson is far more attractive having scored 1 more TD, but scoring in more games than not. Nelson receives fewer targets than Maclin, but has only about 50 less yards due to a higher YAC. Nelson is the #2 receiver and for some reason doesn't get the respect he deserves from the other teams as he is extremely skilled and a nice complement to Jennings whereas Maclin is clearly the number 1 at this point, though that could change with Celek surging, DJax lurking, and Jason Avant waving his hand saying "throw it to me."

I say, go Nelson.
Lineup (starters in Bold)

I'd go Maclin - he's the #1 receiver and DeSean hasn't been getting any looks. Jordy is hit or miss although I would probably put money on the fact that this week will be a hit.
