Sorry to ask again, but no responses before...

Flacco's been avg about 10 pts on the road vs 26 pts (I think) at home. Being on the road and at Pittsburgh I'm worried! Is Foles a better start or hope Flacco breaks his trend?

Currently starting Colston and Moore. Like Moore with DHB quite possibly out, but Colston's got Graham, etal (his fp's have dropped recently). Consider Nelson in a similar situation as Colston but with an added concern being his first week back. Should I consider Nelson (or VJax?) in place of either of them?

Thanks!

I would start Flacco. Granted he hasn't been great on the road but the Steelers are likely to be a much different team offensively. I could the Steeler struggling to put drives together which should lead to more series for the Ravens plus if they can't move the ball it could lead to improved field position for the Ravens.



I would be starting Nelson who gets the Lions in a game that has high score written all over it and Colston. The Raiders and Saints also have high score written all over it and the fact that DHB isn't likely to play could actually hurt Moore as the Saints will then just have to focus on him as the deep threat.

Agreed with Flacco - had thought about the Steeler offense and possibly more opportunities for him (though temper that with Raven's run D). Plus Foles being "green". Have Flacco starting unless another has a strong reason not...

Biggest quandry are my WR's. Streater seems to have done well at times, so see him filling in for DHB. Saints pass D has gotten somewhat better, but agreed could focus on Moore, let Streater/Myers be more productive, and not adjust for them. Still... Colston has Sproles back and talk is more emphasis on running (no ground and pound, lol!) so a bit wary of him. Tempted by Nelson, but 1st game back and shouldn't matter, but opponent has Rodgers starting (I guess only if Rodgers has a "less" productive game, can pick up ground with a different WR).

Any other thoughts?

Foles has the match up vs WAS, but I am not quite sure how much to trust him. He could turn in a good performance, but I am having a hard time slotting him as a starter over Flacco, who struggles on the road. I'll give Foles a few points since he does have weapons around him. Based solely on what Flacco has done on the road, I could see starting Foles.

At WR I start Nelson with Colston, hard to sit Jackson, who has been playing well, but he is the odd man out.

Thanks so far! Hard calls on all - Flacco is 0/4 on the road, but don't want to get "cute". With Foles being a pocket passer, hearing O-line might do better. With fp's allowed to QB's: Wash 26.9 (2nd best), PIT 15.6 (30th) and Flacco on road, now leaning to Foles, lol!

Hey TBH - you mention Jackson - did you mean Moore? VJax I figure was out to begin with. Any particular reason on not using Moore? Thanks for the insights!

No I could see starting VJ in front of Moore. Both have good match ups, Moore gets the advantage vs NOS. No. No real reason against Moore, he has been on fire the lst 6-7 weeks and is playing well. It would sound evil and malicious if I said, "because he is a Raider" huh?

Gotcha and lol, everyone's got their hated teams (Cowgirls for me), but not sure can factor in for starting or not! May toss a coin on QB flex - reading that Wash will throw all but the kitchen sink at Foles, but how effective of a blitz (don't have many sacks, though PIT doesn't either, but wondering about hurries, etc) do they have?

You are correct can't factor in the hate. I think Moore and Lloyd are both on par for similar stats this week.
