Newton or Flacco? WHIR

Postby duffoholic » Wed Nov 07, 2012 1:56 pm

Ugh... asking this stupid question again.

Standrad scoring w/ 3pts for pass TD and 6 for rush.

Flacco vs OAK (plays really well at home)
Newton vs DEN (plays all over the damned place with potential for rushing scores and yards even against a tough D, see ATL week 4)

What are your thoughts? WHIR with a link.

Even with the worse matchup, I'd pick Newton over Flacco. He has more upside with his rushing ability and has out-performed Flacco consistently over the last few weeks. And in terms of matchup, the fantasy difference between DEN D and OAK D is pretty marginal.

go with Flacco

Newton may be able to run but the Denver defense is too good and should be able to keep him quiet at home.

help with mine?

I'd go Cam. His job is on the line. Rice should run effectively against OAK negating some need for Flacco to pass. CAR is always playing from behind and Peyton will really light them up!

I'd pick Newton over Flacco. I'm not a huge fan of Flacco as a fantasy QB, I think that Newton is going to have the better day
