Smith or Dwyer to start in place of Jackson? WHIR

Postby oo3 » Tue Sep 11, 2012 6:59 pm

Team is in sig. Had a horrible week last week in which I started Fred Jackson and he got hurt...then Kevin Smith blew up. I ended up losing by 2 points.

Now that Jackson is out for 3+ weeks who should I start this week? Here's my projection:

QB: Big Ben
RB1: Foster
RB2: Smith or Dwyer or someone else?
WR1: Cruz
WR2: Nelson
Flex: Martin
D: Steelers
K: Gostkowski

Lions are playing at SF this week and Steelers are playing the Jets at home. They haven't really announced that Dwyer is going to start, but the way he played on Sunday, he definitely should.

Martin is already my Flex so he's already starting.

Sorry, didnt see that. I have Smith on my team as well and he done well for me last week. Dwyer could do well against the Jets Defense, but I'd still roll with the hot Smith.

I'd start Smith. It'll be rough because of SF, but still better than Dwyer I think.

Smith for sure.

Honestly the Jets D isn't that horrendous against the run, in fact, no D is. But when you score 48 points you don't play a lot of run D.

SF has a good D but smith will see his touches and receptions.

Even with Smith going up against SF, I think he's still going to be a large part of the passing game again. I like him over Dwyer by a long shot.

Does anyone remember last time these two teams met and the Shake 'n Slap Harbaugh gave Schwartz....can you say pay back. This is going to be a good game...just a side note. ;-D

Martin at your RB2 for sure then for your flex I don't like either backs matchup, but I'm not sure I'd start blackmon over either. Smith draws the niners who are a tough matchup, but he will get his opportunities, and he does catch balls out of the backfield which helps.. Dwyer will still share snaps with Redman at least and possibly mendenhall as well. I think I'd go with Smith, but I wouldn't feel real good about doing it, but I dislike the other options more.

I think the niners win, their defense is on point and if the packers had trouble I doubt the lions will figure them out. Not to mention they had a hard time against the rams...

this guy took the words right out of my mouth. id put Martin at RB2 and start either Lance Moore or Justin Blackmon at Flex. I think both have better odds of having a successful fantasy day than Smith. Dwyer needs to win that job outright before I can endorse him, but I'm very high on him if (and when) he does.

It's a tough choice, but I would still go with Smith. Right now he IS Detroit's running game, and he's getting passes from one of the best Qb's in the game. Even against the 49'ers, I'd risk it. If not, I probably go with Moore.

Mind helping me out too?
