Megatron only on 3rd downs??? please help

Postby steals7 » Sun Nov 04, 2012 9:29 am

I have Calvin in a .5 per catch and a PPR league.

In the .5 per catch I have James Jones sitting on my bench....should I start Jones to be on the save side of things?

In the PPR league I have ability of dropping Danny Amendola and picking up:
Titus Young, Det WR P, Kendall Wright, Ten WR, Santana Moss, Wsh WR or Mike Williams, TB WR
note this is an 8 team league.....

Please help....

I wouldn't start James Jones or any of those waivers you listed over Megatron ever, but I think Mike Williams is a solid pick up from that list as he's been pretty consistent this year.

Umm, Titus Young is now poised to be a very nice play that he is the clear number 2 Wr on that team. With Megatron limited Young is the only viable WR option on that team this week. Detroit cannot run, so what's that tell you.
I have Megtron and I'm benching him this week. He's put up good numbers once, maybe twice this year. And that is playing every snap as well. Something's wrong with him, and with his snaps being limited this week I see him as nothing more than a decoy for the Lions 3rd down situation.
I like Mike Williams TB as well, although not as much as Titus Young. Tampa can actually run the ball, and VJax will take targets away from Williams. Young is the show for Detroit this week.

Megatron is really hard to bench for any of them he's so good he could break out at any time. He's also one of the most targeted receivers in the game. And it only takes one catch to make himworth thestart. If you think he'll lose out on plays then start young.

I'm starting Stevie Johnson over Calvin Johnson this week due to the recent news.......

I have a lineup that I think "Should" win, with that said, it's in my best interest to take 5-8 points from Stevie Johnson, vs. hoping for a 20 point performance from Megatron, only to have him gimp off the field in the 1st quarter and never record a reception.


The Risk is too great for the potential reward for me....

while Megatron is trying to shake off the dreaded madden curse Titus is the safer play this week imo

As of now I have placed Calvin in over James Jonesdueto the potential match-up against patrick peterson....however, I have T. Young in over Calvin in the other...

Keep the feedback coming and thanks for all the voices so far.
