Post I'm starting him.
I'm starting Berrian this weekend in my fantasy league.

He's gonna tear it up! Count on it!

ha. good luck. i have him on my squad as i got him very late. i want to take your side on this...i really do. i want berrian to step up and prove all his critics wrong. i really do. but i'm losing patience. not only did i not start him on my fantasy team, i'm borderline wishing he didn't start for my "real life" team! :spanking:

Well i benched Berrian for Mike Williams(Buccaneers)..Hope you're right for our Vikings sake.I still can't believe the vikings are paying him almost 7 millions for overrated Berrian.

Love Berrian, but Mike Williams is a sleeper pick all the way through the season, and I don't blame you for starting him. I got him soooo late...lucky me! :)

I may do the same. I picked him up since he was undrafted. I'm considering putting him in the flex spot this week.

lol no. He's usually a pretty legit wide receiver. I like how he's scrappy in the red zone, and how he can beat guys over the top. He's just been my favorite since he's come to Minny.

Scrappy?

Don't get me wrong, he has his share of positive attributes but I don't think scrappy would be one of them. Beating guys deep with his pure speed, yes. Scrappy, not so sure.

I don't know, he seems to fight for yards whenever he's in the red zone, and he's not afraid to get thrown around down there.

Fair enough. Hopefully this perceived scrappyness will translate into a couple of scores for the Vikes (and your fantasy team) on Sunday. :beerchug:

I started him last week. How stupid of me.

I'm on the verge of dropping him, but I know that as soon as I do that (or just benching him) he'll have a game with 100+ yds and a TD.

me too. :x and to make it worse i had collie on my bench scoring points like crazy. so i switched them now so you guys will be happy to know that berrian is going off this weekend! and if you have collie started i'd reconsider as he'll likely not do anything this week and most likely get hurt....

:wallbang:

hehe, i dont even think berrian is on a team in my main league, but then again not many minnesota fans in it so not surprising I guess.

My opponent is starting collie this week so thinking and hoping week 1 was his best week and they'll put him a notch higher on "things that concern our defense against the colts" and shut him down!

Well there are not enough #1 WR's to go around in most leagues. So either you would be pretty thin at WR, or you would have to adjust your strategy, if you did play. :lol:

There are 32 teams all of which have a #1 WR and most fantasy teams have 12 teams (though some have more) with two WR slots (though some have more). Realistically, unless you got out-drafted, you should have two WRs that are #1 for some team.

Even with injuries in most leagues there should be plenty of WRs to go around.

Berrian isn't the #1 for the Vikings ... he's filling in for the #1 and there is a pretty sharp drop in production from him to Rice.

I don't think it's a "bad" idea to start Berrian ... but until he shows something it's definitely a risk.
