I strongly disagree. Even your #1 and #2 picks don't always have Studly games. Without checking the numbers. I'd be willing to bet that most #1/#2 RB/WR finish out of the top 20 on a given week more than they finish in it. But there "boom" counters those average weeks.
The only downside is if/when you pick the wrong week. But I'd bet the numbers say you have ATLEAST A 50/50 shot.
With that said. I would never bench AP/AJ/Fitz/Moss or Calvin. AND unless I have a Schaub or Palmer with a great matchup. I would never bench Brees/Brady/Manning
