Lil' WR advice for a longtime lurker

Postby Meatwad » Fri Sep 10, 2004 2:28 pm

The big question for me is who to start @ reciever. I'm in a leauge starting
1 QB
2 RB
3 WR
1 TE
1 DEF
1 K
with scoring of 1pt per reception and .1 pts for each yard gained.

My team consists of Trent Green, Deuce, T. Henry, Q Griffin, O. Smith, W. McGahee, Steve Smith, J. McCareins, Reggie Wayne, Brandon Lloyd, Nate Burleson, Drew Bennett, Dallas Clark, Tennesee and Martin Gramatica.

My big conundrum is who do I start @ receiver besides Steve Smith, considering I didn't start Reggie Wayne last night.
I think McCareins is a definite # 2, and I'm just not sure who then to start b/t Burleson (@ home against the 'Boys) or Lloyd (@ home against a weak ATL secondary and could be a high scoring game).
Yes, I know my recievers aren't great...the league was extrodinarily and unexpectedly bullish on receivers. The top 20 were gone by my pick in the 4th round, which is why I took Q Griffin, hoping that I could upgrade my receivers by offereing either he or Henry further down the road.


Also, I drafted T. Henry in the 2nd, and picked up Griffin in the 4th b/c he was the best available. I'm looking @ starting Q against the Chiefs this weekend rather than Henry vs. the Jags...tell me that I'm not totally crazy.

Thank you in advance. Hope to post some more now that the season's started. thank god for football. Sorry, please move to the correct forum...I mean, what do you expect from a newbie??? :-)

I think the Henry/Q call is tough. I would personally go with Henry...but when in doubt follow your gut. McCariens should be a good start for you.

wrong forum. should be in the "Who to Start"...

I wouldn't complain about starting Griffin over Henry. I think your instincts are good there. Lloyd vs/ Burelson is a toss up imo... ATL's secondary is nicked up, and Erickson should throw the ball...

Lloyd?

I thought you were asking whether to start McCariens over Lloyd....start Lloyd over Burleson, he will have the Boldwin (gotta throw to someone) factor going.
