Standard fantasy article intro/disclaimer: Just because a player is listed as a “Start” doesn’t mean you should necessarily play them over a player listed as a “Sit”. Sit/Start is written to supplement the weekly rankings (and to undermine Doc’s fantasy expertness by sort of disagreeing with him occasionally!), so that noteworthy players aren’t just lost in the middle of the weekly rankings. I’ll try to hit 2 or 3 in each category, but as always, feel free to ask questions about players not covered here.

Quarterback

Sit —

Matt Ryan @ PIT — OK, test case #1. I like Matt Ryan a lot. I didn’t love him last year, but I can see him making a jump this year. Doc has him ranked #10, and I don’t really disagree with that — so why list him as a Sit? Because I don’t think this is a great matchup for him. Pittsburgh’s defensive rankings from 2009 are somewhat misleading because of injuries. Take a look at their defensive numbers when Polamalu is healthy, and suddenly this looks like a tougher nut to crack.

Joe Flacco @ NYJ — Just in case your significant other Tivo’d over Hard Knocks with her favorite Work That Room with Christopher Lowell episode (I don’t even know if that’s how Tivo works, I still own a VCR), Darrelle Revis is back. Yes, Flacco has a whole new unkindness of Ravens (look it up) to throw to, but this is Week 1 — and the operative word when discussing new, talented receivers is “new”. Uncertain chemistry + the world’s greatest defensive back = A slow start for Flacco.

Chad Henne @ BUF — No, I’m not convinced Buffalo is great is stopping the pass. But they are so terrible at stopping the run, I don’t see any reason why Henne will need to throw much at all.

Start —

Jay Cutler vs. DET — Speculation on Cutler is running wild in all directions, but regardless of his actual NFL success this year, the bottom line is that Detroit should still be a bad pass defense (Suh’s presence may add a little pressure, but he can’t cover the WR’s), and Mike Martz can still design an offense that churns out plenty of passing yards.

Kyle Orton @ JAX — Brady Quinn, Tim Tebow, who cares. Orton’s looked in-sync and decisive in the preseason, and unless Denver’s defense is markedly (and inexplicably) better than it was last year, they’ll need to pass early and often to keep up with the Jaguars.

Matt Cassel vs. SD — Okay, like Orton, not a starter in most leagues. But maybe you snagged Roethlisberger late and need a fill-in for a few weeks. SD took steps to improve their defense but there should still be plenty of yards to go around, and Cassel could benefit from some yards-after-catch from dump-offs and screens to Charles and McCluster.

Running Back

Sit —

Cedric Benson @ NE — Reputations are hard to escape, and the Patriots defense has long been considered an old, crafty, “bend-but-don’t-break” unit. The reality is that they have used the last couple of drafts to get much younger and faster in the middle of the field. Benson should be fresher than he was as the end of the 2009 season, but carries may be limited as the Bengals try out their revamped passing offense.

Shonn Greene vs. BAL — I like Greene, but the Ravens run D should remain fairly stout, and the Jets may be inclined to give Tomlinson more carries than he deserves.

Justin Forsett vs. SF — Julius Jones was released. Forsett was named the starter. Yay! Jones was re-signed. Carroll said Forsett was named the starter because someone has to run on the field for the first play, and carries may still be evenly split. Boo! Carroll’s making a play to surpass Kubiak as the most hated fantasy coach before the season starts. Toss in Patrick Willis and a tough SF defense and this is a shaky situation.

Start —

Jamaal Charles vs. SD — Go re-read what I wrote about Cassel, and just replace the “passing” words with “running” words. Err, and ignore the part about Roethlisberger. And McCluster. Just focus on the part that says the SD defense is probably still pretty bad.

Ricky Williams @ BUF — Nobody needs to be told to start Ronnie Brown, but I think Sticky Ricky is a worthy flex play in most non-PPR formats. The Dolphins will want to keep Brown as healthy as possible for as long as possible, so I expect Williams to get more carries early in the season, and that’s a good thing against Buffalo’s run D.

Wide Receiver

Sit —

Anquan Boldin @ NYJ — Everyone hates Boldin and I’m a sheep. Doesn’t have Fitzgerald drawing coverage, doesn’t have Kurt Warner’s gloved fingers delivering bread-basket spirals, <Sportscenter voice> and-oh-by-the-way </Sportscenter voice> there’s that guy named Revis. Start Boldin and enjoy your 4 catches for 46 yards.

Brandon Marshall @ BUF — Yes, you should still start him over just about over any WR on your bench, and you can’t argue with his annual production. But Miami remains a run-first team, and they’re facing a terrible run defense. Keep expectations low.

Start —

Santana Moss vs. DAL — I think McNabb could do wonders for Moss’s numbers. Jason Campbell was serviceable but his strength was short throws to TE’s and RB’s…not hitting speedy WR’s in stride in open space downfield. If McNabb can stay upright, look for some big connections.

Malcolm Floyd @ KC — Gates can’t catch everything, right? And they probably don’t want to run a rookie RB 25 or 30 times in his first game, right? I can write this whole blurb in rhetorical questions, right? I would play Floyd over bigger name guys like Ochocinco. (Damn.)

Hines Ward vs. ATL — Mike Wallace is the big play guy, but I expect Ward to get more looks with Dixon under center.

Tight End

Sit —

Owen Daniels vs. IND — Health. Who knows if this is the real Owen Daniels? If you’ve invested heavily, you may be stuck with him, but I consider him a big risk in Week 1.

Chris Cooley vs. DAL — What was I going to write about Cooley? ARRGH. So frustrating. I had it ready, I could see the sentence in my head, and then I decided to write about Owen Daniels and his uncertain health and possible loss of skill after losing significant time last year and this past offseason and how you may not want to rely on him in Week 1. Oh well, I’ll think of it eventually.

Start —

Heath Miller vs. ATL — What Hines Ward doesn’t catch, Heath Miller will. Good hands, safe option for Dixon.

K(eep on scrolling, because no one needs kicker advice)

No, really. Nobody needs kicker advice every week. My guidelines: I want a guy on a league-average or better offense, facing anything but a Top 5 defense. Why? I want enough offense to avoid getting shut out entirely, and as long as it’s an average or better offense, any particular defense doesn’t really scare me (FG’s instead of XP’s? I’ll take it!) unless it’s a really studly Top 5 or better defense that could really clamp down on any scoring opportunities.

Defense

Sit —

CIN Bengals @ NE — The Bengals should be a pretty reliable defense, but it may not look great in Week 1 against the Patriots. Brady is entering his second year after knee surgery, Welker is back, and Moss is possibly angry and motivated (unless he’s angry and sullen).

SD Chargers @ KC — Have you picked on my hints that I’m not terribly high on the Chargers defense?

Start —

TEN Titans vs. OAK — The Raiders are getting a lot of buzz, but let’s be honest: Jason Campbell is not a tall cool glass of Purple Drank like Jamarcus Russell, but nobody was scared of starting a defense against the Redskins last year either. Oakland’s not about to start dropping 40 points on anyone, least of all the Titans.

  1. Calogero says:
    (link)

    Pick two: Knox (Det), Wallace (Atl) or Felix (@Was)

  2. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @Calogero: I’d take Knox and Wallace in Week 1 — I want to see how Felix is used before I rely on him.

  3. Calogero says:
    (link)

    @mgeoffriau: Oh, also include Hightower in the discussion – you still like both WR more than him?

  4. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @Calogero: Tougher call, as I feel a little better about Hightower’s situation in Week 1 — I think ARI is more committed to giving him 8-12 carries (and possibly more depending on the game score, QB play, and Wells’ health). I’d still lean WR, but it’s closer.

  5. stumanji says:
    (link)

    Who to start:
    TE: Celek or Zach Miller?

    WR2: Jacoby Jones, Kenny Britt, McCluster, or Naanee? (ugh, I’m going to hate asking that every week. Must upgrade)

    D/ST: Have Vikings @NO. Pick up Bears vs Det or Titans vs Oak? I’d drop Larry Johnson.

  6. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @stumanji: Celek for now, Kolb looked for him a lot in his starts last year. WR2, ugh, no kidding…I’d lean Naanee but Britt’s an option as well. D/ST, depends on RB depth but if dropping Grand Ma Ma is no big thing, I’d roll with the Titans.

  7. stumanji says:
    (link)

    @mgeoffriau: LJ is behind Mendy, Knowshon, Foster, Spiller, Bradshaw, and Buckhalter on my team. I basically grabbed him in the last round on the chance Portis goes down, but I have no problem cutting him loose.

  8. 3rd Period Points says:
    (link)

    Good stuff. I feel better about rolling with Sleepy Floyd now.
    Need some help in my 16 team PPR:

    Stafford (@Chi), Garrard (Den), or Dixon (Atl)?

    Ahmad B. (Car) or Knowshon (@Jax)?

  9. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @stumanji: Yeah, I’d dump him…if he was a last round pick, you shouldn’t have any trouble picking back up. Really the only risk (albeit a distinct risk) is if Portis manages to damage himself in the first game. Then you’d be sad.

  10. Trevor

    Trevor says:
    (link)

    Do you think the steelers will come out with the win against the falcons?

  11. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @3rd Period Points: Garrard and Bradshaw. Want to see CHI’s defense before I’d risk Stafford, and Dixon…blech. Carolina couldn’t stop the run last year and I doubt they will this year either.

    @Trevor: Err. What kind of league are you in? Just kidding…I’d lean toward ATL for the straight up win, but all bets are off if Polamalu’s hair is in mid-season form. I mean mid-season when he’s still playing, not mid-season when he’s hurt and on the bench.

  12. Trevor

    Trevor says:
    (link)

    Ha. i got ya. I’m in many leagues actually but the reason i asked is just because of my pick-em league… gotta win as much money as i can. can you blame me.haha

  13. Sifl says:
    (link)

    I have two qbs – Flacco and Ryan (clearly I didn’t pay attention to week 1 schedules when drafting). I’m leaning Ryan, what do you think?

  14. timsti says:
    (link)

    @mgeoffriau: Beanie has me nervous and i don’t have much RB depth as i went a lil WR crazy in my .5PPR. If it comes out he’s not playing start Fred Jackson or Ladanian Tomlinson as my RB2 to go alongside MJD?

    Also, is CIN droppable in a 12teamer for TEN or just roll the dice?

  15. TheEvilEmpire says:
    (link)

    2 RB, 2WR, 1 Flex – PPR league.

    I’m starting Turner, Felix, Sims-Walker, Roddy, and D.Mason.

    Bench is Boldin, R.WIlliams, Hightower, Naanee, Dixon, M.Thomas.

    Anything I should do different? Perhaps sit Felix for R.Williams?

  16. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @Sifl: I’m with you, Ryan’s the play.

    @timsti: Jackson, I’m not an LDT believer. I tend to believe any defense is droppable, but yes, I wouldn’t be concerned about losing CIN (TEN should be a fine play in most weeks).

    @TheEvilEmpire: Yeah, I’d play Ricky over Felix. I’d consider Hightower over Mason at flex if it looks like Beanie’s a no-go on Sunday.

  17. TheEvilEmpire says:
    (link)

    One other Q. I have Marshawn Lynch sitting on my bench not expecting to ever get off it. Been thinking of dropping him but the RB’s on the wire are notably thin. The only one that gives me pause is Keiland Williams. I could definitely see the Grumpy Old Men (LJ andPortis) going down during the season and Williams getting an increased role. Him or Green-Ellis.

    Thoughts?

  18. TheEvilEmpire says:
    (link)

    That second Q was for my second team. :)

    Thanks for the speedy reply MG!

  19. TheEvilEmpire says:
    (link)

    One last Q!

    Where’s the most reliable and up-to-date source for injury news and starters?

  20. Fresh says:
    (link)

    ppr

    welker or floyd

  21. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @TheEvilEmpire: Meh…Torain would be in the mix in WAS if both Portis and LJ went down (he was signed to the practice squad). I’d hold on to Lynch for a bit.

    @TheEvilEmpire: Twitter. :D Seriously, if you’re not on twitter yet, sign up, then follow all the Razzball writers, then start looking at the people that we follow — you’ll find a lot of beat writers, NFL reporters, and otherwise connected people that will break news faster than any website.

    @Fresh: Keep an eye on Welker’s status (he looks like all-systems-go, but this is Belichick we’re talking about) and go with him if he plays.

  22. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:

    Speaking of twitter, I’m generally away from a computer during the evenings, but you can almost always reach me on twitter, and I’ll try to respond promptly.

    I would recommend if you want a quick answer, try to include all pertinent information (league type, opposing defense when asking for player recommendations, etc) — if I’m just on my phone it’s harder to look up the info quickly so every bit of context helps.

    My twitter name is @mgeoffriau.

  23. DSimms says:
    (link)

    For my week 1 flex – hester, santana moss or take a shot with dexter mccluster?

  24. mapwheel says:
    (link)

    Fantasy baseball nut trying to get into football here.

    0.5PPR – Who do you like best for this week? Hakeem Nicks, Santana Moss, or Hines Ward? I know you have them in that order for your week 1 rankings, but I just get a good feeling about McNabb-Moss this weekend.

  25. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @DSimms: I’d lean Moss. McCluster is an unknown, and I want to see how the looks are split up between Knox, Aromashfadoids, and Hester before relying on him.

    @mapwheel: Yeah, I think I’m a little higher on Moss than Doc is — I think he could be a really good value this year. He’s not the same player he was years ago, but it’s also been years since we’ve seen him with a QB that could consistently deliver catchable balls downfield (Campbell would do it occasionally, but then he’d freak out and check down to the RB on the next 6 passing plays in a row). Can’t really argue against Nicks, but I’d probably take the risk and try Moss.

  26. Titan says:
    (link)

    I’m playing Flacco over McNabb in one league and Flacco over Alex Smith and Garrard in my other league….He may have more dump offs to Rice because of Revis, but I think he surprises everyone that is scared of Revis. My two cents…

    NO PPR Pick one:
    J-Stew @NYG
    Felix @Was
    Berrian @ NO

    I’m leaning Stewart…no particular reason…lol

  27. charlie batch says:
    (link)

    whod you rather start in ppr at flex: ricky williams, cj spiller, or felix jones. I was leaning towards spiller but this article makes me pause

  28. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Titan: I would lean Stew as well.

    @charlie batch: I agree with Mark, but I would still go with Spiller.

  29. Doc

    Doc says:

    Be sure to join us above for a live blog of the game. I will be drinking Whiskey so it may get interesting.

  30. Titan says:

    Jameson on the rocks for me as well…enjoy Doc!

  31. HL says:

    I have Shonn Greene should I play Jerome Harrison instead?? I would appreciate your feedback.

  32. Don says:
    (link)

    I’m starting Flacco this week, Orton is on the waiver list.

    Would you drop any of the following players to pick up Orton and start him over Flacco this week?

    Ben Roth
    Kenny Brit
    Robert Meachem
    Jacoby Jones
    Brian Westbrook

    I think the only reasonable option is westbrook, but I have a hope that if Frank Gore gets hurt that he could be productive. Whats your call?

  33. Dukes says:
    (link)

    Right now I have Randy moss and malcolm Floyd going… Trying to pick between Brandon Marshall or TO fory third reciever in week 1 who would you take??

  34. Titan says:
    (link)

    I say play Flacco! He will be decent with dumpoffs…lol (ie. hopefully not “dump” on your team…

  35. Pound Sand says:
    (link)

    Seems that if you read this site, you’ll end up not knowing what to do. Previous post, Cooley is ranked in the top 10 for TEs week 1, next post suggest to sit Cooley. Hmmm who to believe…

  36. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @HL: Yeah, I’d probably go Harrison…who’s your other RB starter? I don’t like Greene’s matchup but he’s still startable in most leagues.

    @Don: I’d hold with Flacco, I do like Orton’s matchup better but the difference between them isn’t enough to warrant dropping Westbrook in a RB-scarce league.

    @Dukes: Marshall, I want to see TO’s role in the Bengals offense before I’d start him.

    @Pound Sand: That’s an example of me trying to undermine Doc. No, seriously, you have to keep in mind there are different writers here. I think Doc and I tend to agree on most things fantasy football, but there are always players and situations that we’ll see differently. I tend to be risk-averse with players returning from injury. Plus, Fred Davis may have earned more playing time with his performance in Cooley’s absence, and there’s a new QB who may not be looking to throw short as frequently as Jason Campbell did. I’m just saying I don’t love Cooley for week 1 — but if you drafted him as your #1 TE, then he’s probably still the correct play over someone you’d find on the waiver wire.

  37. Don says:
    (link)

    Ah thanks for a quick reply, here’s a little bit of a harder question.

    I also asked Doc, and i’ll let you know who ends up being correct haha.

    10 team PPR league

    Rb1- Ray Rice
    Rb2-

    WR/RB Flex-

    WR/TE-Miles Austin
    WR/TE-Desean Jackson
    WR/Te-

    The options to fill these slots are as follows

    Rb- Knowshon Moreno
    Rb- Jonathon Stewart
    Rb- Ricky Williams
    WR/TE- Wes Welker
    WR/TE- Tony Gonzalez
    WR/TE- Kellen Winslow
    WR/TE- Jacoby Jones (just throwin it out there)

    Please fill in my roster(don’t be afraid to move a starter to flex spot).

    I am completely stumped as to what to do, sorry for the long question.

    thanks in advance, this site is awesome.

  38. GT says:
    (link)

    Gutsy call to give a recommendation for starting Ward. Any Steelers receiver should be a borderline start at best as long as Dixon is throwing.

  39. Nick says:
    (link)

    Would you guys still start Greene/McCoy over Hightower, week 1 ?

  40. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @Don: Yikes. Tough one. WR/TE is easier…Welker assuming he plays. RB…I’d probably lean Moreno just because he shouldn’t have to split carries like Ricky or Stewart.

    @GT: Sure, I agree with that. The point of bringing up Ward is that I think he’ll be affected the least by Dixon’s presence — I’d be more scared if I was relying on Dixon to hit Mike Wallace downfield.

    @Nick: If Beanie Wells sits on Sunday, I’d play Hightower. Should have a lot of touches against STL.

  41. DW says:
    (link)

    Flex: Darren McFadden or Marion Barber?

  42. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @DW: I’d go Barber all day…I need to see something from McFadden before I’d play him over a reasonably known quantity like Barber.

  43. sneeker says:
    (link)

    I’m torn between Darren McFadden (@ TEN) and LeSean McCoy (vs. GB). Suggestions?
    Thanks!!

  44. herschel says:
    (link)

    @mgeoffriau: 12 team PPR league. who to start at flex? ricky williams, darren mcfadden or santana moss? as of now, leaning towards ricky…

  45. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @herschel: Ricky, Moss, McFadden in that order.

  46. Dukes says:
    (link)

    Cadillac Williams or Mccoy(phi) in a two RB no ppr league

  47. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:
    (link)

    @Dukes: I’d probably go McCoy…I just trust his talent a little more.

  48. Don says:
    (link)

    Ah thank you, I had been leaning towards stewart as my rb2, but both you and doc are giving the go ahead for moreno.

    Now what about the my RB/WR flex spot, thats the real humdinger. Remember my TE’s can still be used.

  49. DW says:
    (link)

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I was thinking maybe McFadden would put up decent points since he won’t be splitting with Bush for a while, but I think I like Barber this week too.

    A friend turned me on to this site not too long ago. Great stuff.

  50. Dazed&Confused says:
    (link)

    I know I drafted Michael Turner to be a starter. Would you consider starting Arian Foster over Turner this week?

  51. Steve says:
    (link)

    Seriously….asking to “fill in your roster” seems a bit much…just my $.02.

    Standard PPR league, need a flex player from: CJ Spiller, LeSean McCoy, Cadillac Williams or Malcolm Floyd.

    My thinking: McCoy’s got a tough matchup…between Spiller, Williams or Floyd. I believe in Floyd and he has the EZ matchup, but RB’s usually generate more pts….

    What do you think?

  52. Steve Mc says:
    (link)

    Need to start 2 of these at Flex spots in PPR league

    Bradshaw, Sims-Walker, Driver, Floyd

    Thoughts?

  53. drpepper says:
    (link)

    What’s going on? Question is which 3 would you start in this bunch: Benson, Mendenhall, Hightower, McCoy, and Cadillac?

    And also, is there any hope for my WR’s. W. Welker is my #1 followed by Maclin, Garcon, Massaquoi, Jacoby Jones and Nannee….

    Thanks

  54. Joel says:
    (link)

    Need to start 3 out of Best, Foster, Bradshaw and Barber. who would you bench?

  55. ilikestuff says:
    (link)

    I’m in a return league (25yd per point) – who should I start as my #2WR:
    – Josh Cribbs (don’t laugh!)
    – Devin Aromashodu (Chicago – my #1 WR is Johnny Knox)
    – Laurent Robinson
    – Lee Evans
    … Or I could pick up Devin Hester

  56. Wiles B Freely says:
    (link)

    Jamaal Charles (vs. SD), Ronnie Brown (vs. BUF) , or Cadillac Williams (vs. CLE)?

    Charles is probably safest but Brown and Caddie have great matchups and who knows if Thomas Jones will steal away from Charles potential.

    Hines Ward (vs. ATL) or Donald Driver (vs. PHI)?

    Hines has Dixon at the helm which should hurt the PIT offense but potentially increase Hines’ looks? GB offense is insane, but will Finley, not Driver, be Rodger’s safety valve?

  57. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Don: I like both Ricky and JStew. I’m leaning Ricky.

    @DW: Thanks for reading! Good luck!

    @Dazed&Confused: I’m leaning to Foster.

    @Steve: I like Spiller.

    @Joel: I would bench Barber.

    @ilikestuff: I’d go with Cribbs for his for sure return yard points.

  58. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Wiles B Freely: I like JC of the three. Going with Ward.

  59. John Reedy says:
    (link)

    Week 1 only
    Rank the following receivers please
    H. Nicks vs CAR
    L. Robinson vs ARZ
    M. Wallace vs ATL
    J. Knox vs DET

    Also, Ahmad Bradshaw or Tim Hightower?
    Thank you

  60. Nathan says:
    (link)

    Who do I start in week 1?

    QB: Matt Ryan or Derek Anderson

    WR: Dwayne Bowe or Wes Welker

    Thanks!

  61. TK says:
    (link)

    Speaking of return yard leagues – What about Dez Bryant vs. Cribbs? Bryant doesn’t return kicks (only punts), but I’m thinking he is much more of a receiving threat.

  62. ilikestuff says:
    (link)

    Another question:

    I’m in a league that only has 5 bench spots, yet starts 13. I’m weak on WRs (as you could see from my earlier question, Johnny Knox is my #1 WR), and I can pick up Sidney Rice off of waivers.

    I’m reading he won’t be back in game shape until approx week 11 or week 12, so that means I’d have to reserve a spot, just for him to help me in the playoffs.

    Do you think that he’ll be a true WR1 by Thanksgiving? I could sorely use some reliable WR help, esp. come the playoffs.

  63. Hitts1 says:
    (link)

    I need to start 2 rb’s & 2 wr’s or 1 rb and 3 wr’s. Who should I start between A Foster, J Best, C Williams at RB vs. R White , B Marshall at WR. I figure Foster and White start for sure. But should I take advantage of Best or William’s matchup at RB vs. Marshall’s matchup against the Bills?

  64. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @John Reedy: Hightower

    Nicks, Knox, Wallace, Robinson

    @Nathan: Ryan and Welker

    @TK: @TK: Yeah, I would lean Bryant unless you get a ton of points for return yards.

  65. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @ilikestuff: With that few bench players I wouldn’t worry about Rice. You’ll end up dumping him by week 6.

  66. Joel says:
    (link)

    Thanks Doc! I really appreciate all your great analysis. One more Q:

    would you go Arizona D or Cowboys D this week?

  67. Joel says:
    (link)

    I forgot — another Q: I have Clinton Portis as my RB 5, but only Austin, Nicks, Gaffney and TB Williams as wrs. What do you think of Portis? would you trade him for Johnny Knox?

  68. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Joel: I like Dallas. I would give Portis a few weeks to put up some numbers then trade him. His value isn’t great.

  69. bman says:

    Alright I have a couple of in the middle guys that I would like to see who you would start. First at quarterback, I have Donovan McNabb, and Matthew Stafford. I like that McNabb is playing Sunday night but it is against the Cowboys who he has not seem to have played well against. Where Matthew Stafford plays Chicago who he has played well against. Normally would start Mcnabb but under the circumstances thinking Stafford. Who would you start.

    Next I went heavy on WR’s so I am stacked with Andrea Johnson, Marcus Colston, and Larry Fitz. But I sacrificed for some in the middle RB’s. I have to start 2 of the following 3 RB’s. This is how I have it buut I would like to know which to you would start. Tim Hightower and Ricky Williams are in my line up, but I have Felix Jones on the bench. Would you put him in over either of them if so why ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Bman

    @bman: I would keep Jones benched and go with McNabb. Stafford is too risky right now.

    @dedalus: Going with Moreno
