Question 1. Asked by @gibbyp2
@BigJim_SFL Laurent Robinson WR (JAC) or Justin Blackmon WR (JAC)?
I love Blackmon in his first ever pro-game. He has vaulted to the top of the depth chart in Jacksonville and had some early chemistry with Gabbert in the preseason. Minnesota allowed the third most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers (25.1 points per game) and I think that Gabbert will be able to move the ball reasonably effectively. Robinson’s success last season was at least partially due to the Cowboys offense and plethora of quality wide-outs to draw coverage from the defense. I do not think he will be Gabbert’s favorite target or the highest stat-producer because he is at the top of the depth chart currently and this will draw attention and double teams. Robinson won’t crack my top 50 until he proves that he can handle being the #1 guy, which I don’t think will happen.
Question 2. Asked by @Skinny7878
Start Rivers or Cutler? Someone/anyone HELP!! #FantasyFootball #FantasyFootballForLife
This is one of the few tough questions I’ve faced so far this week. To get right to the point, I say play Cutler. The Bears offense is going to be productive this week. Yes they are going to run more than usual, but the connection between Cutler and Marshall is legitimate and these two guys WILL be connecting throughout the game. Rivers on the other-hand has a pretty weak receiving corps and is facing a better secondary. Rivers IS the more talented of the two but I just don’t see him as the better play this week.
Question 3. Asked by @TheRealDVance
@BigJim_SFL Trade question for ya sir. I’m wanting to get Willis McGahee but he is wanting Jordy Nelson. He is also throwing in Lance Moore.
This is simply too high of a price to pay. I like McGahee and I think you can talk him down off of Nelson. He knows that he is asking too much and is just fishing for a great deal. If he is serious and won’t talk more reasonably… just walk away. McGahee isn’t going to suddenly become a top 10 guy now that Peyton is in town and you can just wait a while and play the waiver wire lottery in the mean time. Or look to another team to make a trade.
