Who to start at RB2, WR2, and FLEX...WHIR

Postby e5volcano » Mon Sep 03, 2012 7:08 pm

8 team league, standard scoring, no PPR/PPC
Getting ready for Week 1, my entire roster and league settings (no PPR/PPC) can be seen in my signature.

But Anyhow, for
RB2: DeAngelo Williams (vs Bucs, 15 proj pts ); Stevan Ridley (vs Titans, 12); or Darren Sproles (vs Redskins, 11)
WR2: Antonio Brown (vs Broncos,16 ); Steve Johnson (vs Jets, 13); Jeremy Maclin (vs Browns, 12); or Eric Decker (vs Steelers, 11)
FLEX can be any of the above RB or WRs plus my backup TE Jermichael Finley (vs 49ers, 9)

ESPN Reccomends starting DeAngelo Williams, Antonio Brown, and Steve Johnson based on projected points
Thanks

My thoughts:
Start DeAngelo Williams on RB2 because this will probably be the surefire best week he will have. Stewart is injured, not sure how bad it is, but Williams will probably get most carries he can against a decent Bucs running D.
Start Antonio Brown as WR2 because he has been so hot during pre season and with Mike Wallace coming back, people will double team him freeing Brown up.
Start Eric Decker as FLEX because he has been so good with Manning. HOWEVER, Steelers D is really good so not sure.

Darren Sproles is injured, and this is a non PPR league, so not sure if he would score as many points as DeAngelo.
Steve Johnson is going against Revis Island, he has a good track record against Revis though
Jermichael is going against 49ers, for sure he won't start
Maclin...could see him start as WR2 because hes going against Browns, but how healthy is Vick and would Desean, coming off a huge contract play big and take away balls from Maclin?

I would start Deangelo, assuming stewert is a no go or not 100% for week 1.

for WR, I would go with Stevie Johnson, like you said, he lite up Revis pretty well last year.

For flex, I would go with Decker

id roll with Sproles as your RB2.

at wideout, id go with Antonio Brown. hes been big bens favorite target and wallace isnt in game shape yet...he could do some damage.

as flex, id go with D-Will ONLY if Stewart is out.If he isnt, id go with Decker.

I think you should go with sproles if he's playing. I'm not sold on Williams with cam newton getting goal line carries. I would def start brown and decker. Great wrs who their qb go to

Well, Stewart sat of practice, and the coach says he is optimistic, so not sure.

Also Steelers just said that Ryan Clark will sit out of the game, do you think that will help Decker immensely?
