Spiller or Brown?

Postby Sydewinder » Tue Dec 13, 2011 10:31 am

I'll reword this because I already made my decision in the flex so it only leaves this one question left...

C.J. Spiller (vs. MIA) or Antonio Brown (@ SF) in the flex?

Rest of my roster:
QB- T. Tebow
RB1- R. Rice
RB2- F. Jones
RB/WR- W. McGahee
WR1- W. Welker
WR2- [SEE ABOVE, NEED HELP]
TE- J. Witten
D/ST- Giants D/ST (vs. WSH)
K- N. Rackers

Will Help In Return, I'll check all the way through Thursday and if you link to your question I'll weigh in. Thanks!

This is tough as neither really has a good matchup.

Brown has been pretty consistent lately but this may be a low scoring game.

Spiller hasn't shown a lot in the 3 games he's played and MIA has been stopping the run. McCoy only gained 38 yards on 27 carries last week averaging 1.4 ypc. But Spiller does have big play potential so he could break one. And, Spiller will get guaranteed touches.

I think Spiller is the safer play based on touches. If SF's defense plays well Brown could lay an egg.

Spiller. Just look at who's going to get the most touches. CJ should get around 20 where SF could shut down Brown. Antonio would have had a tough week against Clev if it wasn't for that 80 yarder.

I would start Antonio Brown because the Dolphins, despite being 4-9, play the run very well. The Niners also stuff the run like nobody's business and you can expect the Steelers to turn to the passing game, which would make Brown an attractive start. Not to mention, the Niners pass defense is nowhere near as good as their run defense. The only question mark is Roethlisberger - if he's healthy and good to go, I think Brown is the better play.

Thanks for the input everyone, and hope you enjoyed what I had to weigh in about your lineup questions also! All else said, I think if we're all having these tough questions the way this fantasy season has gone with injuries and surprises, we're doing a pretty good job. Now for the final stretch...

If anyone else weighs in on this I'll continue to give my input if you provide a link up through Thursday night's game. Thanks for all your feedback to this point!
