Week 1 Woes - The Risky Plays?

Postby cbhuff » Fri Sep 07, 2012 12:37 pm

OK so I have MJD(hold out), Ryan Matthews(injury), Mendenhall(injury), Mike Wallace(hold out), and Dwayne Bowe(hold out). I picked up MJD and Matthews as my main backs but they aren't looking promising to start first week. And i'm having trouble deciding reveivers.

My current Line-Up is
qb-Stafford, wr-Greg Jennings, wr-Mike Wallace, rb-Donald Brown, rb-Steven Ridley, te-Jermichael Finley, wr/rb/te-Dwayne Bowe.
Bench-MJD, Matthews, Mendenhall, Luck, Fred Davis, Santonio Holmes

Should I start Donald Brown even though he probably wont do much with the Colts having to pass a lot to keep up. Or put in MJD in hopes that jennings isn't producing and they just keep rolling MJD after the start, or he gets goaline carries...Should I have wallace and bowe playing or put in one of my bench in the FLX. Their might be someone on the wire to pickup and drop Holmes but who...

i like your lineup how it is set.. around week 4 your team is going to be unstoppable when all of those holdouts get their wheels spinning
QB- Matt Ryan. T Pryor
RB- Arian Foster, Steven Jackson, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell
WR- Reggie Wayne, Dwayne Bowe, Steve Smith, Greg Jennings, Nate Washington, Keenan Allen
TE- Jermichael Finley, Coby Fleener
D- Seahawks
10 man .5 PPR

stick with your current. MJD should be fat and slow for a couple. As for the rest of your bench the only viable option is Fred Davis and you have Jermichael in (I would swap here). Matthews, Mendy and are non factors for a while and Santonio Holmes is a Jet... enough said.
10 team 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF
P Manning, RG3
A Foster, CJ Spiller, B Tate, Le'Veon Bell,
D Thomas, J Nelson, M Wallace, DeAndre Hopkins, Vincent Brown, Marlon Brown
J Thomas, M Bennett
