Start Martellus Bennett? WHIR

Postby enasnidx » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:43 pm

Since Hakeem Nicks is out for tomorrow night's game, I'm debating starting Bennett as I have him in both of my leagues. He has a bunch of targets and is a strong red zone threat. With the potential to get even more targets tomorrow night, do you start him over Brent Celek or Jason Witten?

I have Celek/Bennett in one league and Witten/Bennett in the other. Both are PPR. Thoughts?

Leave a link, I'll post my thoughts for your question!

I would personally start him for sure. I am starting him over Finley @ Sea. Bennett should see more targets in this game with Nicks hurt and the defense trying to stop Victor Cruz from being too much of a factor.

I think if I were going to start Bennett over either it would be Witten. I think Celek is solid and I dont see how you can start Bennett over Celek, who leads all TE's in yardage by a large margin. Witten I would probably start him over, Witten hasn't looked all that good this year, granted the first game he didnt see much work. Witten might end up with more yardage, but he doesnt get too many scores, and thats something Bennett will do.

Celek > Bennett > Witten

help with mine?

I'd go with Bennett over Witten. Celek is a little tougher, but I would still go Bennett.

Cardinals D is pretty good, while I think Bennett can torch the Panthers.

Bennett in both.

Thanks for help in mine.

I like Bennett and am starting him as well...

That being said, Maclin is banged up...so that makes Celek, Vick's top target in the RZ and middle of the field.

Id start Celek over Bennett in your one league...

Then start Bennett over Witten in your other.

I think both could have really good games, but just think Celek is a slightly safer start.

help me out?:
