Stafford or Dalton? WHIR 100%

Postby JimiRayThunderaxe » Sat Dec 08, 2012 6:03 am

Stafford has lost Burleson, Young and Broyles leaving him with only one reliable receiver which makes me very nervous. I realize they could get J Bell and Sheffler more involved, but I dont really have a lot of confidence in the coaching staff. Throw in the fact that the forecast is a 100 % probability of "snow and rain"? Seems very risky.

Dalton may not have the yards Stafford does, but he does have more TDs. He also has more total fantasy points and is playing in better weather. Concerned about Dallas's D and especially the loss of Sanu. Dont really like Dalton in the end as I have heard his stats have been better then his play but I am really scared of Stafford.

Big Ben is also available but he seems very risky coming off that injury.

Tough choice here, but I am expecting the Cowboys Bengals game to be a ground and pound type game with good defensive play. Not expecting great fantasy stats here. I think Stafford should be fine with his CJ, TEs and whoever they plug in at WR2. I mean didn't Shaub throw for 5000 yards a couple years ago with Kevin Walter as his WR2. I wouldn't worry too much about the weather unless it is expected to be very windy. and Big Ben is as tough as nails. I think he would be a quality start. It would be between him and Stafford for me, but I would lean Stafford. ;-D

Any other thoughts on this? I don't think there is an rock solid answer so any thoughts appreciated.

Tough one but, I would go with Dalton since Stafford didn't do much against GB a few weeks ago.

Dalton is probably good for up to 250 yds and two TDs. Stafford will throw the ball a bunch, even in bad weather, and CJ is going for Jerry Rice's single season receiving record. Stafford didn't play well against GB, but I think he has a higher ceiling in this matchup.

I think Stafford will have a very good game. Start him with confidence. I smell a shoot out and he's too good to sit at this point.
