That's a good point. It probably diverges from the point of this thread, but most knowledgeable people probably aren't frequenting the "Who to start, who to sit" forum. I know I'm not, and I'm not that knowledgeable.
It doesn't seem like a very good forum because the people capable of answering the questions don't go there. Now, if it were merged with this one...but I digress
Unfortunately, the regression has begun.
Sorry to keep it going...
The reason I don't go to Who to Start/Sit or the Trade forum a lot anymore is because too many people post those type of questions in FF Talk! This turns me off to going to the other forums to help out...I have no problem helping people with their questions, but many times the questions are answered by the first poster. I don't feel like saying the exact same thing unless I can add more backing to the answer.
I also understand why a lot of people ask their questions in this forum. It is the most highly populated forum, so the chances for response are greater. But, posting these type of questions here generally angers the people who have been here for a while and makes them wary of actually going and answering questions in the proper place.
I went through the same problem last year when I was a "newbie" to this site. I appreciated whatever responses I could get in that forum (although I did do a decent amount of bumping). But, I still didn't go posting my start/sit questions in FF Talk! That's not what this forum is for.
The reason the forums were split up in the first place was because this forum was getting so filled with start/bench and trade questions that you couldn't see any fantasy news - the good player posts went off the front page in minutes!
I have mentioned it before, but I personally feel this forum should be renamed to something like "Fantasy Football Player News and Strategy." Hopefully this type of name would discourage people from just seeing this as a general forum where you may think any question could be asked.
I apologize again for hijacking the question, but I've been wanting to say that for a long time.
Onto the question - Until Cleveland consistently shuts down opponents that have viable rushing and receiving threats, I wouldn't think about starting them. Seattle is the way to go for now.
