Bench MJD? Who to start? WHIR

Postby 49ersavior » Sat Sep 22, 2012 9:49 pm

10 Team Espn league, PPR scoring. I'm playing the 2nd highest scoring team this week (I'm the highest). Recently traded Amendola for Welker so here's where I'm at right now. Who should I start?

QB Tony Romo, Dal QB
RB Darren Sproles, NO RB v KC
RB Frank Gore, SF RB @ MIN
WR Calvin Johnson, Det WR
WR Julio Jones, Atl WR
TE Jimmy Graham, NO TE
FLEX Miles Austin, Dal WR v TB
D/ST Cowboys D/ST D/ST
K David Akers, SF K
Bench Maurice Jones-Drew, Jac RB @ IND
Bench Pierre Garcon, Wsh WR Q
Bench Brent Celek, Phi TE
Bench Justin Blackmon, Jac WR
Bench Matt Cassell, KC QB
Bench Wes Welker, NE WR @ BAL
Bench Stevan Ridley, NE RB @ BAL

This is the starting lineup I'm leaning towards for the week. I down like the matchup of NE vs that Baltimore D, but I can't justify putting MJD in there over who I have now and the consistent production that's been put up. + in ppr Sproles is a super RB Thoughts? Am I crazy for benching MJD?

I agree with the entire lineup except for the FLEX. While Austin will probably have a good (10+) afternoon, MJD will run all over Indy and has a much higher upside, imo. Rest of the lineup is very solid. Good luck.

Thanks for the help on mine. I would play MJD over Gore. MN run d is solid and Gore doesn't catch a lot of passes anymore. Indy has a terrible run d and MJD will catch some passes for your ppr production. Good luck!

There's no way I'd bench MJD, especially against the colts.

Start him over Gore.

Thanks for helping with mine.

YEah, can't really justifying benching MJD. I would play MJD over Austin for sure. Otherwise, lineup looks good.

I'm a huge Gore fan, that being said, you have to start MJD over him. Especially in PPR and against Indy. Gore hasn't broken 100 yds against Vikes D in a while (I think in his entire career to be honest). I would keep Austin in because it's PPR.
