Two Wide Recievers from one team?

Postby tmfs » Thu Oct 07, 2004 12:22 pm

I was wondering what is the opinions on starting two wide recievers from the same team. Should you avoid it, or does it not matter that much. For example I already have Mason on my team and was thinking about picking Bennett against a weak GB secondary. Do you worry about one taking away chances from the other or do you think it's a good chance that one of them will get a score, so you go with both with a good chance to get atleast one score out of either of them?

It's not a bad thing if the match up is right and QB spreads the ball around. Though you better have a beast as your #1.

Must be a Titan's homer. I don't know who else would say Mason is the biggest beast of them all.

Nope, i meant R. Moss is my number one, because he is by far the biggest beast of them all. Mason is my number two. But are there any other opinions about two recievers from the same team?

It all depends on the matchup.... Against GB on Monday night, I would not think twice about having Mason and Bennett as my #2 and #3....

I have done this in the past. Moss and C.Carter. They worked out very well for me. The key is that one of the WRs have to be in the Top 10 IMO. In that instance, Moss was the stud and would always get a fair share of points but Carter was good enough to have big days without starving Moss. It also helps if the offense they're in is also Top 10.

Another ownder had the Rod Smith/McCaffrey combo and that worked out extremely well.

The combos I would consider starting right now:

Harrison/Wayne or Stokley
Bruce/Holt
Horn/Stallworth

With the offenses they're in there is almost no reason to avoid one of these guys simply because you have the other.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

I would also add D Jackson and K Robinson to that list.
