Bench Doug Martin for Lloyd?? PPR whir.

Postby rclement3915 » Tue Sep 25, 2012 11:22 pm

Ok so I'm off to one of those, scored the 2nd most points but still lose weeks.

Starting: PPR
Qb-Brady
RB-AP
RB-Martin
WR-Welker
WR-D.Thomas
WR-Austin
TE-Bennett
D/ST-Arizona vs Mia ( or ravens vs CLE?)

Martin hasn't been setting the world on fire. Redskins have given up yards on the ground to Richardson/SJax and so on in previous weeks. But not sure I can trust Martin.

My options are: start Andre brown (Bradshaw could be back) or Alfred Morris over Martin.
Start Brandon Lloyd over Martin against a buffalo team that the pats should be able to throw on.

Or I can just, keep Martin the lineup.

Also, should I start the hot cardinals d/st vs Miami or go with the ravens vs Cleveland?

I think it is a little early for you to decide. I like brown a lot and i think he will play more of the game than bradshaw. Otherwise, I like lloyd over martin. I dont like any1 from TB. Either way I think more information about bradshaw will be released and make your decision easier.

In terms of your defense, you have 2 winners there. I think I like baltimore a schmidge more.

^first off to Dr. Mundo: do you play League of Legends? I had to ask

But onto the post I wouldnt start Morris over Martin because the Bucs run D is pretty decent. I could see you starting Andre Brown over Martin because even though Bradshaw may be back they may try to ease him back and I think Coughlin will get him touches no matter what. Your best option may be to start Lloyd over Martin because even the Jets' offense threw on them effectively (I'm a Jets fan), so why can't the Pats do the same? Good luck.

I'd go with Lloyd here, he should score atleast as many points as Martin with an upside for more. The TB offense is horrible, and while Martin is the best of those 3 RB choices, I'd go with Lloyd over him

As for the defense, I'd go with the Ravens D against the Rookie QB in primetime.

For me this is between deciding between Welker or Lloyd. Starting two receivers from one team is just weird. I would trade one of those guys if I were you. I've never seen that done before. I'm leaning towards benching Welker and playing Lloyd/Martin. They will look deep to Lloyd this week and try to find ways to get him in the endzone. Martin will get carries and is a consisten producer. Give it some time, Freeman is getting better. For defense go with cardinals. They shutdown Eagles last week and now playing rookie qb without Bush.
