Sit/Start: Young, Alexander or Starks?

Postby The Jesus » Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:05 am

With Antonio Brown ruled out for week 11 and looking at this week's match-ups, I'm leaning towards starting Titus Young in my RB/WR spot, even if Megatron plays. Any thoughts?

I expect Johnson to start, so I would go with Alexander.
Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!

As Starks is now the head back in GB, he's a lock to get you something. My guess would be around 10 points or so, might get lucky with a goal line TD as well. If you want the 50/50 risk of boom or bust stick with Young.

*As a quick biased note, Detroit is facing the Packers this week. Looking back to Week 2 Dom Capers did a amazing job making Chicago's star weapon a non-factor by consistently providing safety help on end. Granted Brandon Marshall is no Megatron, but if they can apply this same ability to any sort of extent, that might open up some opportunities for Titus Young.
