Pierre Garcon....

Postby tripower » Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:24 am

I've got one of those GOOD problems to have, but I'd still like to get some opinions. As you see here, I've got a pretty decent team starting in week one:

QB: Matt Stafford
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Percy Harvin
RB: Darren McFadden
RB: Fred Jackson
TE: Brandon Pettigrew
WRT: Kevin Smith
K: Jason Hanson
DEF: Buffalo

On the bench, I've got Jonathon Stewart, Pierre Garcon, RG3, Ryan Matthews, Kenny Britt, and the SF defense. My question is in regard to Pierre Garcon because I saw a Yahoo news-clip that Garcon should be a must start in week one. I'm not really seeing it, but do you think I should start Garcon in place of Marshall or Harvin in week one? I won't bench Kevin Smith for Garcon because I think Smith will be a fantastic producer versus the Rams in week one, but what about in place of Marshall or Harvin? Again, I'm really not seeing it, but I'm still seeking input.

Thanks!

I have Garcon and I feel he will have a decent year. RGIII looks for him like Newton looked for S. Smith last year (difference being that Smith has more talent than Garcon). With that said, there's no way on earth I'd start him over Harvin or Marshall.

Bench Harvin and start Garcon. Don't start a single Viking this week until you know they can score points.

I wouldn't start him over Harvin or Marshall. That being said I would 100% start him over Kevin Smith, but you said thats not an option, so I guess he stays on the bench

I have the same issue with my lineup, but you can't sit those two wrs for an unproven commodity of rg3 to garçon at this point.

Do you get points for return yards?? If not then I go Garcon over Harvin. I absolutely HATE ponder as a starting QB.

Definitely keep marshall and smith ( he is the only healthy running back for the potent Lions)
