Sit Wayne this week? WHIR

Postby wtr23 » Thu Dec 27, 2012 2:00 am

Hoping to win the Consolation Bowl this week :-D , I need a couple opinions. I got burned last week with Blackmon on the bench scoring 20+, meanwhile my starters (cruz and Amendola) scored less than 10 apiece, killing my playoff hopes. I'm the favorite to win this week but I don't trust the projections. The Giants are garbage in the second half of the season, and I wouldn't be surprised if Wayne was limited this week, since the Colts have guaranteed themselves a spot in the postseason. Is it too risky to take both my studs out (Wayne and Cruz) and Play Amendola and Blackmon? I plan on going 3 RBs so I can't flex one of them.


Please help me decide who to bench (sit/start 2 of the 4)

Wayne vs HOU - last meeting he only managed 3 rec for 14 yards and Colts are already locked in to the playoffs
Cruz @ATL - last meeting 3 for 15 yds (eerily similar to Wayne)^, but Atlanta may sit some players late giving Cruz a shot to score
Blackmon @TEN - shorts out? I like his chances esp in PPR
Amendola @SEA - Another PPR monster but disappointing game with a favorable matchup, much tougher defense this week.

I think I would go Wayne and Blackmon. Contrary to historical precedence, Pagano came out and said he is playing to win against Houston, and I doubt Wayne will put up the numbers he did last game against them. Cruz is riskier just cause he goes as Manning goes, kind of an uphill battle of late. But big play potential. Amendola is an almost guaranteed 6pts, but without the extra 5-10pts you'd get in PPR its hard to justify starting him over guys like Wayne, or even Cruz. Blackmon is kind of a darkhorse, big week last week and Tennessee is pretty bad, plus Shorts out as you said? I like those odds. Besides, consolation bowl haha, id be going high risk/reward status.

Actually it is PPR (check the sig), but that lousy game last week really has me down on Amendola. I held on to him throughout the injury, with ups and downs from Cruz and Co., but he hasn't produced like he was prior to the injury. I suppose its all or nothing anyway, can't really feel bad for starting any of these guys.

Started Cruz and Wayne as usual... didn't put up the numbers I was hoping for (last week) but Cruz found the endzone. Burned by Blackmon once again :-[
