Week 8 QB and WR Help WHIR

Postby Sailor19 » Mon Oct 22, 2012 3:20 pm

Ok, so I have my two QBs facing off against eachother this week
Peyton Manning vs Drew Brees, usually I would start Brees every week, but Manning is playing against a horrid NO defence...also they're in Denver, and they've been good at home this year

As for my WRs, I need to start three of the following:
Demaryius Thomas vs NO
Wes Welker @ STL
Larry Fitzgerald vs SF
Marques Colston @ DEN
Reggie Wayne @ TEN

I was planning on starting Thomas and Welker, but considering Larry's matchup, and his performance last week I'm thinking of starting Reggie Wayne in my flex position, not too sure on which way to go here

EDIT: I just picked up willis mcgahee, i could also throw him in that flex spot too

Wish I had your problems...

Can't go wrong with either QB, but I'll just say Brees, because, well, he's Brees. (For the record, I have Peyton and I am looking forward to him dropping bombs all over the NO defense this week.) :)

All 5 receivers have the potential to go off this week. Can't sit Wayne in that inevitable shootout. The other guys are all coin tosses, but if you want to go strictly by matchups, then Thomas and Colston are your next best bets. The Rams have been crushing WRs and SF is tough as well, but we are talking about Fitzy here, so he's an option too...

Thanks for your imput, but at the moment I'm thinking of setting it up like this

QB - Peyton Manning - NO defence is too bad to pass this up
RB - LeSean McCoy
RB - Reggie Bush
WR - Demaryius Thomas - again NO D
WR - Reggie Wayne - Can't pass up the match up
TE - Gronk
Flex - McGahee - just because of that NO D, we'll see how it goes

So do you need to start three or two of the WRs? B/c if its just three, I would go with Thomas,Welker, and Colston
