The ol' match up dilemma- Manning or Palmer? WHIR

Postby DuhToi » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:53 am

I know everyone is gonna jump on me for this one, and it's probably deserved, but should I start Eli v the Boys or Carson v the Chiefs? I know Eli is an elite fantasy QB but the match up for Palmer v the Chiefs is such a juicy one (he also has Heyward-Bey back). What are your thoughts?

Post a link and WHIR.

Don't do it. The Chiefs D is looking for some inspiration, and attacking Palmer in Arrowhead is just the thing KC needs. Believe it or not, I imagine both Palmer and DMC having a bit of a rough day in KC (although for full disclosure, I am starting D. Moore for OAK this week.) Even if Palmer does succeed and have a "Palmer-like" day, he probably still won't match Eli's stats.

Stick with Eli - he won't let you down against those morons down in Dallas.

Yeah I would stick with Eli too. His situation is simply much better than Palmer's. Nicks is back now, and between him, Cruz, and Bennett, you have to like Eli's options in the passing game. Also, the Giants are giving up very few sacks and Eli has not turned the ball over much.

The match-up looks good, but remember that the Giants are a much better team than the Raiders too.

You never can be sure, but Eli is certainly the safer bet.

Here's mine: viewtopic.php?t=527243
QB: R Griffin III, A Luck
RB: A Foster, F Gore, T Richardson, K Hunter, M Hardesty, A Green
WR: V Cruz, M Austin, P Garcon, S Moss, B Hartline
TE: J Witten
K: Matt Bryant
D: ATL.
