WR's - should I bench Bowe again this week!?

Postby Twlong223 » Fri Sep 21, 2012 4:27 pm

So my starters last week were AJ Green and Reggie Wayne. I've been flexing Reggie Bush and these guys have been very solid thus far. Of course it hurt a little to see Bowe tear it up in the bench but this week KC plays the god awful new orleans defense. Should I throw Bowe in for Wayne?

I could also start Bush and McCoy as my rb's which means benching DMC and flex Bowe... What do you guys think?

I like your second option.

Bowe should do well against NO. McCoy must start and r bush is looking great

I have a feeling DMC goes off this week I have him in one of my leagues and am playing him as well. N Bowe for sure against the NO secondary which is struggling. take wayne out!!

Thanks for the help.

DMC is bound to go off at some point. I would sit Wayne and let Bowe start. That game should be a shootout.

I don't think you are in trouble any way you play it. You just have to get lucky and pick the right combo. I think McCoy and Bush (as strange as it sounds) are a lock to start, and use McFadden over Bowe if you think you are a big underdog and need one of those guys to have a huge game to have any chance to win. If it is a close game and every point will count then maybe start Bowe over McFadden, as I feel like he is solid but with both higher downside and lower upside.

Using those rules we all love to throw around:

"Never sit your studs" - means McCoy, DMC, and Green start
"Ride the hot hand" - Bush starts
"When it's close, play the highest over/under" - Bowe starts

Sounds to me like Wayne is the odd man out here, but I couldn't fault you for any combination you put out there. Good luck!
