Week 1 TE:Greg Olsen or Fred Davis PPR WHIR 100%

Postby rclement3915 » Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:43 am

Ok so my new dilemma this week, is who should I start at TE this week?

Greg Olsen or Fred Davis?

Olsen has looked good this preseason/camp and is supposedly going to get a lot more targets with Shockey out. Could be Cam's second option after Smith. Has a good matchup vs TB.

Davis has a lot of talent and is the un-questioned starter at TE. He hasn't had an amazing rapport with RG3 in the pre-season, but is one of the teams biggest threats in the passing game. Has a great matchup vs the Sanits D who give up a lot through the air, and Wash will likely have to air it out to try and keep up.

So who do you think makes the best start for week 1? PPR

As always leave links / questions and I'll always help out in return.

My other starters:
Brady
Welker/Austin(14 pts)/Garçon
SJax/D.Martin
?
Lions DST
Henrey

I'd definitely go Fred Davis here. As good as Olsen looks upside-wise, Davis is arguably the most reliable receiver on his team going into a game where the Redskins will likely be passing quite a lot to keep up with the Saints.

Until I see Olsen perform up to his potential, I'm going with the guy with the history. Davis for me on opening weekend, but that may change further into the season as I agree with you on Olsen and Cam hooking up more this year. GL

More risky/higher upside is Olsen. Could see a big day. Although I feel like Fred Davis is guaranteed at least 7-8 targets. He is the safer play.

The safer play and the one that I would recommend would be Fred Davis. Thanks for your help with mine!

Olsen will be a nice play with Steve Smith probably not being 100%(foot). But like others have said, Fred Davis is the safer choice.


Thanks for the help on mine!

Fred Davis is probably the better play, although I'm skeptical of RG3's ability to keep the offense on the field...

Davis. Wait to see what develops between CAR OC, Newton and Olsen. Promises to be interesting. Fred Davis is a top 5 TE at the end of the season IMO...

I like Davis a lot. He's a stronger play being the first week I'd go with him unless his play tells me otherwise.

Ty for your help. I'd go with Davis. I think the Buccs are going to have a better defense this year and thus more trouble for olsen this week. Agreeing with everyone else as well that davis is the safer bet and i generally prefer the safer bets for fantasy football.
