Week 7 QB Stafford or Freeman?

Postby utility-hook » Tue Oct 16, 2012 8:22 am

I have Matt Ryan on a bye this week. I was going to pick up Freeman to play against the Saints but someone just dropped Stafford. Should I go with Stafford against the tough Bears defense instead?

Stafford could be nice long-term if you have room on your bench, but I wouldn't want to play him against the Bears this weekend. I'm not a Freeman fan, but this would definitely be the one weekend to play him. I say run with Freeman.

I have same problem with you :-) , Chicago Def is top and just got a week off; so i may take Freeman with NO in shooting game at home.
How about my case? viewtopic.php?t=526199

I'd roll Stafford as well. Gonna have to think he's gonna be chuckin' the ball quite a bit. Good Luck

Seems to be a variety of opinions here.

Personally, if this is a one-week deal, I would take Freeman in a shootout with NO. If you are looking for someone to hold for more than a week, I would take Stafford.

I would get Staff for long-term...if he starts producing like last season youll have a good player to deal. Also keep in mind that Ryan's falcons might go undefeated or close to it...in any case they might not have much to play at the end of the season so i wouldnt be surprised if they sit him. Staff will be playing for something until the end!


Thanks for the help!

Freeman for sure. Did you see Stafford last week? Dont trust him this week against the Bears. Rodgers had a tough time with them so what makes you think Stafford wont? Freeman is playing the team with one of the worst defenses in the league. EVERYONE has thrown and ran all over them. Why wouldnt you start someone playing them?

Freeman vs NO defense is pretty juicy. He seems to be getting a good rapport with Vjax and even Tampa Mike.

Stafford has great upside b/c he can launch the ball and usually Megatron will catch it! He has potential to throw for a bazillion yards all the time. But he's been bad lately. Bears defense might feast on him this week.

I think Freeman is safer THIS week.
