2013-14 "Who should I start?" Thread

Larry Fitz vs ATL
Reuben Randle @ Philly
Josh Gordon @ KC

think with Gordon is that Campbell is starting and is gonna want to throw

I like Randle here. Manning will throw the ball a ton against Philly and Randle has been on fire getting TDS

that's what i got. atl has allowed a lot of points to receivers so i got fitz on the other side. i was just tempted to see how gordon performs with campbell.

Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall on byes, Martin hurt badly against the #1 team in the league.. Who to start?

At RB:
Mike James at Carolina
Ellington vs Atl
Joseph Randle @ Detroit
MJD vs SF

Pick 2 RBs and 1 Flex
Im leaning towards the first 3. But MJD and James is a toss up..

I can also pick up DHB and drop either Doug Martin or Heath Miller (I have Gronk). Since reggie wayne is out.

Since you have Gronk I would pick up DHB and drop Miller. Then I would start DHB as your flex. I think I would start James and Randle (assuming Murray doesnt play)

I dont trust Campbell and think he is going to be under a lot of pressure from that KC pass rush.
Rueben Randle @ PHI (Projected: 9.28pts)

or

Mike Wallace @ NE (Projected: 11.00pts)

I'd punt. But with those choices I'd go with Ponder. There has to be someone better on the waiver wire - no?

Randle

His best games have come against Philly, and the Pats secondary has been solid (not to mention Tannenhill has hurt shoulder, might not be able to throw the bomb).

Wow, your team looks rough if these are your choices...I'd say go to the waiver wire and pick up another QB (Pryor or Henne) rather than those three.

If you HAVE to choose, I'd say Ponder (he has weapons, just playing crappy; also, GB gives up pass yards, especially with Matthews missing). Buffalo will be running all day to keep Brees off field, and they have a strong pass defense in NO, while Geno will be without Kerley, leaving him with Hill and Cumberland to pass to (Cincy doesn't surrender too many points through the air).
I have Andrew Luck and he's on bye and this is a 16 team league. Those QBs I mentioned are the best available.
Ah, I lied! Chad Henne is available against us in London.
I'm surprised not more Thad Lewis fans in here...he's looked good last two weeks, going into New Orleans. They use him a lot as a runner. I thought he would have the highest ceiling.

I'm starting him this week in one of my leagues because he's the best there was out in the FA pool. I'm hoping for 20 points

Geno.

I have the option to go either Geno or Thad and I'm rolling with the Bills QB because he has the better matchup. Geno has been good but that Cincy D ain't no joke.
