Who Would You Start - Week Five?

Unread postby waborat » Sat Oct 04, 2008 9:27 pm

Out of the following, which 2 would you start this week (PPR league)?

Houshmanzadah (If Palmer starts then I'm going with TJ)
Roddy White (against a depleted GB secondary)
Steve Breaston (in a pass happy ARZ offense)
Bobby Engram (finally back and Hasselbeck has to throw to some one right? Tough D though)

If no Boldin, gotta consider Breaston. I don't care how good Buffalo's secondary might be. Warner will chuck it 40 times again.

And is leading both leagues in points scored, anyway.

We had a guy who sat both Favre (51 pts) & Schaub (49 pts) last week for O'Sullivan (18 pts)...we play in a PPR league

Both Buffalo & Green Bay have secondary issues this week

Another wrench was just thrown into my plans...the guy that I'm playing is now starting Hasselbeck, so I'm thinking about starting Engram just to offset his points (if he throws to him a few times)...argh

Hate that plan. Always start the guy you think will score more and never be influenced by your opponent.

I hear ya Pup... I did that a few years ago and it killed me

All in all it ended up good for me today...I started Housh, White & Witten and here's how my WR's stacked up point wise:

Housh 24
White 20 (all in the first half)
Witten 14
Engram 11
Breaston 10
...and I had THolt on a bye...it looks like my WR's are finally shaping up

I've already beat the guy that I was playing today and I still have Brees left tomorrow night
