Rivers or Fitzpatrick?? WHIR LL

Postby archie814 » Wed Oct 31, 2012 12:09 pm

Rivers, coming off two terrible games, playing KC tomorrow night
or
Fitzy playing a solid HOU defense.

Buffalo will probably be down and throwing, where I kind of think the KC/SD game could be lower scoring (just a hunch).

Can anyone help me with this decision??

Think you gotta go Rivers.

Buffalo might be down and throwing, but Houston has a good pass defense.

Rivers is playing a pretty shitty defense, plus despite his struggles i feel like he's still the better QB.

Fitzpatrick. May not have a monster game but will be better than Rivers. Rivers is droppable in standard leagues.

Ha those are both my QBs too.
I am thoroughly disgusted with Rivers, and he'll find a way to suck with Kansas City even though that defense is slightly better than Houston's in passing. He's had only 1 300+ yd passing game so far & 9 int & 3 fumbles.
Fitzpatrick has done better for me, and (Buffalo) will fall behind fast, so he will have to pass more vs. run the ball.
& Spiller & Jackson wont be running much against a top 5 rush defense that has allowed 0 rushing TDs thus far.
It's a toss up, but Rivers has let me down more often than Fitzpatrick, that's why I bit the bullet last week & dropped a WR for Josh Freeman.
I told myself I'll start Freeman next week if Rivers scores less than 10 points against Cleveland, Rivers did not disapoint in disapointing me. :p
I'd Go Fitzpatrick!

I meant "even though that defense (KC pass) is slightly WORSE than Houston's"
Houston pass defense has allowed 13 TDs to KCs 15 TDs.
Average pass yardage allowed is about 20 yds/game less than KC.
