First time player looking for confidence in Week 2

Postby mgoose288 » Tue Sep 11, 2012 7:56 pm

Hey, I'm new to Fantasy Football and am playing in a head to head PPR league. I feel like I have a pretty good team but just don't know who to sit or start (since all my points were on the bench in week 1)
Here what I had in Week 1
QB: Matt Ryan
WR: Greg Jennings
WR: Dwayne Bowe
RB: Chris Johnson
RB: DeMarco Murray
TE: Fred Davis
W/R: Torrey Smith
K: Garrett Hartely
DEF: Houston
Bench:
TE: Jacob Tamme
RB: Maurice Jones-Drew
QB: Matt Schaub
WR: Lance Moore
RB: Michael Bush
WR: Kenny Britt (<- Swapped him for Kevin Ogletree after Week 1)

So who do you guys think I should start in Week 2?
Thanks

I'd put MJD in your flex and Tamme over Davis at TE.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.


12 team big $$$ non PPR league - QB RB RB WR WR TE D K

QB: Rivers
RB: Murray, Matthews, R.Bush, D. Brown
WR: Julio Jones, Colston, VJax, Garcon
TE: Witten, Gresham
K: Kaeding
DST: SEA

Thanks!
Do you think I should put Michael Bush in for Chris Johnson; and Lance Moore for Dwayne Bowe?

Both Johnson and Bowe were disappointing in Week 1. Could they do better in Week 2?

It's the first week, I would not "bench" a stud like C. Johnson - EVER- He is a ROLLERCOASTER though - 5 points one week and 23 the next - Week 1 at half time my top 3 picks had me a whopping total of 15 points ( all 3 combined) and then it got a little better - still cant go wrong with M. Stafford , Lesean McCoy and Roddy White .. bottom line; It's ONE week. Lance Moore over D. Bowe I'd go with Lance Moore - Robert Meachem is gone and M. Colston is gonna get a lot of attention. If I had started Lance Moore ( over Titus Young) i would have won but you'll have A LOT of weeks like that in Fantasy Football. Agree with Stevooo concerning putting MJD in Flex and Tamme in as long as the matchup looks better ( who has weaker LB's/ Safeties)
