WHIR ** Britt or LaFell **

Postby ramzstriker » Sat Sep 15, 2012 10:41 am

14 team .1 ppr question. I really like Kenny Britt this year for good value. The question is when to start starting him. I know the rumor is that he may play only 25 snaps but he has supreme talent and I believe he could make the most of it. I started LaFell last week, and he did score, but I don't want to push my luck with CAR third receiving option.

CAR has a better matchup (NO gives up more pass yards and receptions over past 2 seasons). I will monitor Britt in either case, but I just don't want to miss out on pts or maybe even a TD. Thoughts? WHIR

I would go with K. Britt. Even though he's injured and could be a risk, he is an explosive player that can put up a lot of points. B. LaFell would be the safer play and if you don't want to take the risk I wouldn't blame you for starting him. However, I would go with K. Britt and hope that his injury and rust does not hinder him much.


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

I agree! Britt is riskier, but has more upside.

I would start Britt!

I sat both Peterson and MJD Last week because both were suppose to play limited snaps. Don't be like me. Start Britt.

Thanks for help on mine.

No problem. Got to love the risk/reward of fantasy football man.

I think it depends on whether Smith plays, of course. If he doesn't, go with LaFell. If he does, like everyone else has said, Britt has much higher upside. Hopefully Locker is fine, too, as he's got the stronger arm.

Help with mine?

I'd say Britt...wish I had that option available for me. He has more upside...

If Britt is ready for action I'd start him. Lafell's got a friendly match up against NO but he's hard to trust
