Week 2 WR question...Jennings out, DJax questionable (WHIR)

Postby wtr23 » Mon Sep 10, 2012 6:01 pm

Ok guys, this week I need to decide my who will be starting at the flex position (W/R/T) in my PPR league

Here's a list of all my options, wk 1 starters in bold:
Reggie Wayne
Greg Jennings
DeSean Jackson
Aaron Hernandez

Dexter McCluster
Kevin Ogletree
Denarius Moore
Scott Chandler



A couple years ago Jackson would be the no brainer, but with Maclin and McCoy in Philly Djax just isn't posting numbers like he used to. He has been known to make a big play or two, but I'm not so sure it'll happen against the Baltimore D.

Ogletree could be a bust, but for now I like his chances as Defenses look to shut down Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, I think Ogletree could have a couple more big games this season. Will it happen next week?

Not too sure about McCluster, he put up nice numbers this week but Buffalo doesn't seem like the place to test him.


I'm leaning towards Wayne, Jennings, and Ogletree as my starters, with ogletree in the flex spot. Thoughts and opinions appreciated, let me know which 3 you would start and why.



***EDIT***
Thanks for the help guys. Unfortunately Jennings looks to be doubtful with that groin injury on a short week, so even if he does play I don't see much coming from him. Sticking with Wayne and Jackson, made a couple changes to the roster so now possible players for flex are:

.Kevin Ogletree
.Denarius moore
.Dexter McCluster
.Scott Chandler



Any help would be appreciated

Thanks for the help with mine! I wouldn't feel confident with Ogletree yet. He looked good but he was playing against 4th and 5th string players so that could definitely be something, but who knows. He did look good. I say go with Wayne or Jennings. I'm saying Wayne will get the most balls thrown at him if that means anything.

Wayne. Most targets.

Also Jennings is questionable with a groin strain. Maclins banged up, so Djax could bea solid play too.


help me out with my week 2 situation?

I'd stick with your week 1 starters.

Wayne is getting a lot of targets (He was a steal in most drafts this year IMO, as he was still solid in a putrid offense last year). Jennings is Jennings, as long as he is playing I would start him, he is usually a very steady producer. I'm not so high on Jackson either, but I do think he is worthy of a WR3 start.

Ogletree is tempting for sure, but with Witten, Dez, and Austin, I just don't see enough balls to go around. I would at least wait to see what Ogletree's role is in the coming weeks before starting him over the more proven guys.

Here's my stuff: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=519143

I would give McCluster a shot this week only if Jennings is out. he was targeted 10 times last week and went for 82 yards. with the defense focused more on Dwayne Bowe in the passing game it opens things up for Mccluster and he has the speed and athletic ability to make people miss and maybe find the endzone against the Bills. I would wait on Moore(hamstring) until he shows he is healthy and in sync with Palmer.

Stick with R. Wayne and D. Jackson as your starters.

I think D. Moore, K. Ogletree, and D. McCluster are extremely close in terms of potential fantasy production. If I had to choose, I would go with D. Moore because he should receive the most targets out of the three.


Please help me with my trade if you have time: viewtopic.php?t=520260
