WR2 + Flex. WHIR

Postby drhanl » Sat Oct 06, 2012 6:38 am

PPR 1 pt per 20 yards receiving, 10 yards rushing. I just made a big trade: Big Ben, Welker and A. Morris for Brady Wallace and D. Brown. I'm pretty excited. But, don't like my new matchups too much this week.

I need to pick a WR and A flex

James Jones at IND
Donald. Brown vs GB
D. Jackson at PIT

The rest of my lineup:

Brady
Rice
MJD
Wallace
WR2
Flex
Gates

Jacoby Jones is your WR2 against Indy. Jennings is out again, but Rodgers still has targets that will cause the Colts defense to remain spread thin. The RB situation is not great so he will most likely be looking pass as often as possible and will get the time to do it, despite the Colts inability against the run.

As for your flex, I would go DJax. Philly have the tools they just need to get things together and become more consistent. With Maclin, Celek, McCoy and Vick all threats, that still give the explosive Jackson the chance to put up numbers. Brown I think will be forced to pass protect as the Packers surge ahead forcing Luck to look down field more often.

Thanks for helping with mine.

I'd start James Jones for sure. Rodgers and the Pack are still playing with a chip on their shoulder, and Rodgers liking Jones more and more every game. Especially if Jennings is out, Jones will get his targets.

The next one is a tough call. Like you, I own DJax and he's frustrating to own. And like how you mentioned, I wouldn't trust him against a healthy Pittsburgh defense. So I'd go with Brown over Jackson.

I also like the two wrs here more to the fact that I don't like Donald Brown thus week. He has really under performed this year and it looks like the Colts aren't that committed to running the ball, but that could be more due to poordefenaive play then gameplan

Thanks for your help with mine!

Like others have said, you gotta go with Jones and DJax this week. No Jennings means more looks for Jones and DJax has actually been quite productive this year. He has been riding my bench but only because I've had better options. With bye week hell coming up DJax will be in my lineups for sure

I'm in agreement in that Donal Brown is a must sit in this situation!

I also agree that you should roll with both WRs. Jones is a must start with Jennings out and I think DJax has more upside than Brown.

Thanks for mine!
