Hi there, new to the board and first year playing FF ...

10 Team League

Not a PPR

Starting roster positions: QB, WR, WR, RB, TE, W/R/T, K, DEF

I won in week 1

I have questions about who from my current team I should be starting for week 2 in four of my roster spots.

Would you start Newton (at Buf) or Pryor (Jax) at QB this week?

Would you start Bowe (Dal) or Edelman (NYJ) at WR2 this week?

Would you start Cameron (at Bal) or Winslow (at NE) at TE this week?

Would you start Forte (Min) or Bush (at Ari) at W/R/T this week?

Here's my full roster if it helps:

PlayerTeamSlotOpponentYahoo Proj. Pts.

C. NewtonCARQBat Buf18

V. CruzNYGWR1Den10

D. BoweKCWR2Dal9

A. PetersonMINRB1at Chi14

J. EdelmanNEWR3NYJ10

M. AustinDALWR4at KC7

R. BushDETRB3at Ari12

S. VereenNERB4NYJ0 (injured)

K. WinslowNYJTE2at NE5

Lastly, I guess I should drop Vereen since he'll be out 'til week 11 now ... not sure who to get in his place though.

Thanks so much guys!

Hi Josh and welcome!

Thank you for the details in your question.

I would drop Vereen. He is no use for you to keep until week #11. Just don't drop him until you can find another back that will produce.

I would start Newton against Buffalo, Bush against Arizona, Bowe against a very confused Dallas secondary, and Cameron who has way more upside than Winslow.

Even though I like Edelman, the Jets might stick Cromartie on him. He is more suited in a PPR matchup than a standard one. I think Bowe might have a big day against the Cowboys at home. You might want to get more opinions on this start though.
