What would you do?

Postby icedmofo » Tue Sep 04, 2012 1:04 pm

This may be a silly start em/sit em question, but i'm going to ask anyway:

Jamaal Charles vs. Atlanta

or

DeAngelo Williams vs. Tampa Bay

I know Jamaal Charles is the better back, but not only is Atlanta the better rush defense, but he'll be sharing carries with Hillis, whereas, at least for week one it seems, Jonathan Stewart will be out, so DeAngelo will get the bulk of the carries.

Also:

Reggie Wayne vs. Chicago

or

Percy Harvin vs. Jacksonville

DeAngelo since he'll probably get the bulk of carries because of the reason yhou stated.
Percy Harvin since he's got the better matchup


please help

Is jacksonville really the better matchup in the secondary over chicago?

I feel like i looked at the pass yards allowed rankings and jacksonville was ranked higher than chicago, which caused me to put reggie wayne in to begin with.

Also, if i put in Arian Foster/Deangelo Williams, would i be better off with Jamaal Charles or Darren Sproles in my flex spot?

This is a PPR league.

On your last question, I'd actually go Charles over Sproles. Sproles gets touches, and makes the best of them usually...but they are LIMITED. Charles will get 80% of the RB touches/catches.

I feel that sproles will have the more value when jonathan stewart returns and deangelo williams is splitting carries again.

Hold up. what is going on here? i would not sit JCharles for Deangelo, no matter the matchup. Even without Stewart, Cam Newton is the short yardage/goal line back in that offense. Deangelo is now an afterthought.
JC will probably get 16-17 touches and that's plenty for him to break a long one. Granted, Hillis is probably the goal line vulture, but that didnt stop JC from being a stud before.
I think you are overthinking the matchups and forgetting a cardinal rule of fantasy football-never bench your studs.
Now, if you want to put Deangelo in your flex over Sproles, that seems reasonable until Stewart comes back. I also like Wayne over Percy. Better QB, and probably more passing in that one especially if the Colts fall behind early as expected.

just my 2 cents...

Yea LSUby50 is spot on....I'm not sure where Starting Deangelo over Jamaal Charles would ever be an option....other than a bye week. So your line-up should pretty much always be Foster/Charles with Sproles as your Flex option. Deangelo is there for a bye week or injury...IF that

I think I'm going to go foster, Charles, Williams and bench strokes this week since Stewart is out with an ankle injury
