Help on who to start this week?!? **WHIR**

Postby JimJones » Sun Nov 13, 2011 3:59 am

As of right now, this is what I have my line-up as for this week:

QB: Mark Sanchez (Vs.NE)
RB1: Willis McGahee (@KC)
RB2: Chris Johnson (@CAR)
WR1: Wes Welker (@NYJ)
WR2: Dez Bryant (Vs.BUF)
TE: Owen Daniels (@TB)
FLEX: Ben Tate (@TB)

Bench:
QB: Ben Roethlisberger (@CIN)
RB: LeGarrette Blount (Vs.HOU)
WR: Mario Manningham (@SF)
TE: Rob Gronkowski (@NYJ)

Firstly, I feel like Roethlisberger has a pretty tough match-up against the 9th best passing defense (Bengals) and that Sanchez is going to have a pretty solid game fantasy-wise against the worst passing defense (Patriots) in the league.

Secondly, I feel like Tate is going to have another good game this week against the 9th worst rush defense (Buccaneers) and that Blount isn't going to have a very good game against the 9th best rush defense (Texans).

Lastly, I feel like Owen Daniels has a better chance to do well against the Buccaneers who give lots of points to TE's. Gronkowski has a tough match-up against the Jets and performed pretty poorly the last time the Patriots met the Jets.

Am I crazy for starting Sanchez over Roethlisberger, Tate over Blount, and Daniels over Gronk this week??
QB: B. Roethlisberger
RB1: D. Murray
RB2: D. Sproles
WR1: J. Jones
WR2: P. Harvin

DEF: Play by match-ups

Bench:
C.J. Spiller
Fred Jackson

Looking more for comments as to why I should start others over my current starting line-up. I'm feeling the one I have currently, but looking to be convinced otherwise. Why do you feel better about Big Ben against the very disciplined Bengals D than Sanchez against worst pass defense in the league? Do you not think Tate will get his share of carries against TB, or that Blount will do fine against the Texans?

Argh, I f'd up....
Did good with playing Sanchez over Big Ben & Tate over Blount but f'd up BIG TIME by starting Daniels over Gronk...
I'm up 16 points & my opponent has AP left to play...crossing my fingers but things don't look good right now :-(
