Ponder or young?

Post by NextQuestion » Wed Nov 30, 2011 12:01 pm

I got ponder on my bench and Vick is out. Should I pick up Vince young?

Jenkins is out and Peterson might be too.

Yes. I don't anticipate Ponder doing very well against an aggressive Denver defense with a shotty line, crappy receivers (with one average "starter" on IR) and Von Miller on a tear. Young is coming off of a fine game, putting up 400 yards last week. Ponder might reach 400 yards passing in three games. Start Young with confidence.

How many do you need?

I'd order them like you have them. Some nice matchups there.

2 RBs.

Sproles is always good for points but Lynch and Blount do have solid match ups

non PPR.

tough shape? Yeah it really sucks having 3 solid RB options and lynch has 22 points for me in the first half alone.

Vince Young? That was horrible and he will probably be benched.

Hopefully you started Lynch. I was referring to your QBs, Ponder and Young, IMO, isnt a great couple to pick from. I personally dont like Sproles in fantasy, on a team with too many weapons, thats just me.

I did start Lynch. Young/Ponder isn't by choice as Vick is usually my QB

with Freeman out this sunday they will have to let Blount do this thing against the worst ranked rushing offense. I like sproles too but I worry about DET's D (even without Suh)
