PICK TWO - Maclin, Austin, J.Stew *WHIR*

Postby jberends » Wed Oct 31, 2012 5:52 pm

I have Julio locked in as my WR1 and Matthews and Martin as my RB1 and RB2, but I need my WR2 and FLEX positions filled.

Options:
Maclin (@NO)
Austin (@ATL)
Stewart (@WSH) --> A lot of talk right now about him carrying the load and getting better and better.

I also have Titus Young, but I don't think he breaks into my lineup yet.

Thanks in advance! Post link and I will help.

Hmmm, I know this might sound crazy but I feel like Julio is gonna have a bad day. Dallas cornerbacks are tough and Jones seems to be having a lot of trouble at home. I'd definitely play Maclin against the Saints and then Austin as your two receivers and then at flex I'd play Stewart.

I could see playing Maclin and Austin as well. However, I'm assuming you spent a high pick on Julio.
He hasn't disappointed "per se" so far this season, so I think you have to start him. The potential is ALWAYS there.

I know the NO matchup is nice for Maclin, but he (on the other hand) hasn't done much to prove he can be trusted in a lineup this year.

I would go with Austin and Stewart, as JStew should be getting a nice workload (as it's been increasing) against the Redskins.

Good Lukc!!
Help me out pls,

Dont play JStew. The running game in Carolina has not done anything all season and I dont see it happening this week either. I think this game is all about Newton and RG3. Dont sit Julio

Yeah, he could easily break the trend and does have upside to explode every week so I wouldn't blame you for starting him.

Here's Julio's game log and you'll see what I mean though, quite strange.

Even with the backfield being fully given to Stewart now?

I'm almost in the same spot as I have to choose between Maclin or J Stew @ my flex.

For you - I would go Austin & then I'll let ya know because I have no idea.

Maclin - like the matchup but hasn't done much. Philly has a whole unless they figured something out, anything I don't see much from Maclin (which sucks since I own Vick too).

J Stew - like full-time status if you can call it that. Match up is pretty nice too.

Both Philly & Carolina need a win to break the bad mojo they have going.

I see Maclin - higher risk/higher reward J Stew - moderate risk/moderate reward.

Despite all the advice in every direction, I'd go with your first instinct (op) and go with Maclin and Stewart.
