Who's got the edge??

Postby Will Herrmann » Wed Dec 11, 2002 12:48 pm

First week of the playoffs and I'm looking to start off strong. Finished the regular season in first place (6 man league) and I'm going up against #4 in the first round of the playoffs. 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE. 6 pts/TD, 1 pt per 20 rec/rush yds. Who's in the favorable position this week?

My Team:
QB: Drew Bledsoe (vs. Chargers)
RB: Priest Holmes (vs. Denver)
RB: Travis Henry (vs. Chargers)
WR: Hines Ward (vs. Carolina...unless his hamstring injury worsens)
WR: Joe Horn (vs. Minnesota)
WR: Keyshawn Johnson (vs. Detroit)
TE: Todd Heap (vs. Houston)
K: M. Grammatica (vs. Detroit)
Def: Baltmore (vs. Houston)

QB: Favre (vs. 49ers)
RB: Marcell Shipp (vs. Rams)
WR: Jerry Porter (vs. Miami)
WR: Laverneus Coles (vs. Chicago..will start if H. Ward is too injured)
DEF: Green Bay

His Team:
QB: Jeff Garcia (vs. Packers)
RB: Ricky Williams (vs. Oakland)
RB: Marshall Faulk (vs. Arizona..will probably switch to C. Martin)
WR: Terrell Owens (vs. Green Bay)
WR: Plaxico Burress (vs. Carolina)
WR: Peerless Price (vs. Chargers)
TE: Randy McMichael (vs. Oakland)
K: Jason Elam (vs. Miami)
Def: Philly (vs. Redskins)

So how am I looking for this week, and are there any players on my bench I should give consideration to? Hines Ward will be decided on later in the week. Probably Saturday. L. Coles will get the start if Ward doesn't look ready to go.

I think it's too close too call. It really could go either way. If anything I think he may have a slightly better team. Bledsoe is hot and cold. You have Priest which helps a ton, but the way Williams is playing it is pretty much a push. Your other back (Henry) and his other back (probably C Mart) will probably also score similar amounts of points. I like his receiving corp a bit better, although Horn has a great match-up. It should be an interesting match-up between you too. Good Luck.

Sorry to say, but it looks like his team has the upper hand here. Everything looks even until you get to the WRs. Hope you can pull it off.

I think the Rook has to change his name.....should veteran! I total agree with him, and I agree with starting Coles over KJ.
