Week #3 and it's time to go for the throat. I'm going with the trends this week, instead of the no brainers. I'll either be a genious and a hero, or an idiot and a zero. I'm expecting most who read this thread to call me an idiot and expect me to end up a zero. You are probably right.



Bold moves:

Benching Ray Rice against Patriots 2.6 yards per carry and 62.5 yards per game allowed.

Benching LeShaun McCoy against Cardinals 102.5 yards per game. Philly offense looks sad this season

Starting Sprolles....Chiefs, need I say anymore?

Starting Doug Martin against Dallas' 4.4 yards per carry and 132 yards per game.

With the biggest gamble of the day, starting Mikel LeShoure against Tennessee's 4.2 yards per carry and 155 yards per game.

You be one bold Pirate, Jimmy! Couldn't do that myself, but we'll see which system works best this week: start your studs, or play your matchups.



I'd starting McCoy, Rice, and Sproles.

WOW...I was seriously wrong about Philly. I watched the Eagles/Browns game week #1 because the Buccs game was late. Philly looked awful. I am really high on the Browns defense, but they can't be that good. On further investigation, Philly has the #1 offense yards/game in the League. Smoke and mirrors? How can an offense look so bad to the eye, but be so effective in the box score?

OK, Josh Freeman officially sucks. I won't be starting Martin again unless bye weeks and injuries dictate. Josh Freeman stares down WR's worse than any QB I have ever witnessed, and therefore makes the entire Offense stale, slow, stagnant and unproductive.

Benching Ray Rice for Martin was an epic failure. Starting LeShoure for McCoy was a success. Tampa's Defense did exactly what I thought they would do to Romo, but as bad a game as Romo had, he still outscored Cutler. Cutler got me 11, Romo would have gotten me 15. Pretty much a wash.

I think there are times where being bold has its advantages, but sometimes, even with the chips are down and against a player, for example Larry Fitzgerald, I could not see benching him. In your case Ray Rice and LeSean McCoy, regardless of how bad of a season they are having are must starts every week.

Being bold and being smart are different. You are right, you could have been a zero or a hero and you probably fell somewhere in between this week. The bold move that did pay off starting Leshoure. Good job.
