    Giving Advice ...

    This is my 3rd year playing fantasy football, i play in a $50 league with top prize of $450 ... so far I have 2 championships and am going for my 3rd. So if my advice means anything to you, answer my question and I will answer yours.

    Who do I start this week, Dwayne Bowe vs. SD or
    Manningham vs. Arizona

    • Dwayne Bowe is up against a tougher pass defense, but Manningham may lose some targets due to the resurgence of Hixon.

      SD will lead, and Bowe/Cassel will catch up. It seems more likely for Bowe to hit pay dirt here. KC doesn't have as many options as NYG, so Bowe is my pick.

      On the flipside, NYG vs. Ari could easily turn into a high-scoring shootout resulting in Manningham getting buckoo points.

      Hard call, but I choose D BOWE. I am using him this week as well, so I gotta keep the faith. lol

      So, there ya go...

    • I would probably go with Bowe. San Diego should build a lead here, and I wouldn't be surprised to see KC spend the whole day trying to play catchup. As far as I know, Bowe is healthy now. The Giants' passing offense is turning into New Orleans North...we are never sure who will be getting the targets from week to week, plus Hakeem Nicks is emerging as yet another mouth for Eli to feed. Bowe is the unquestioned #1 on his team so he should see more targets, and I'm not incredibly worried about Cromartie or Jammer, whoever San Diego lines up against him.

      Sorry about the length...should I go with Pierre Thomas (MIA) or Marshawn Lynch (CAR)? Ordinarily PT no-brainer but the matchup gives me pause.

    • I would most likely roll with Manningham.

    • Manningham. I'm more of a blue guy.

    • OK - I am undefeated and want to stay that way! Do I start Warner against my own defense (Giants) or start Favre against the Steelers?

      Thank you!!

      • Thats a tough one ... the Giants are gonna be looking to bounce back after last weeks embassment ... Warner has been solid this year but not great ... I think the steelers will also look to key in on stopping Peterson which should give Favre a chance to rack up some stats. I gotta go with Favre here. You didnt answer mine tho ... who should I start this week Bowe or Manningham!!
