Which WR to start?
This is in my other, non RZ, league...with Moulds possibly out *again* this weekend I need to fill his spot with a different WR. Which one of the following would you choose?
I know many are Cleveland fans around here so please don't pick Northcutt out of loyalty. :laugh: :evilgrin:
Northcutt or Shaw. Shaw would probably see more playing time. however, since Kevin Johnson has been cut, Northcutt's the number 3 reciever, not number 4. Northcutt is a pretty good punt returner, and stands a chance of gaining some yards there (the catch to that is the Browns have poor blocking of him). of course, by next week, Andred Davis could be the 3rd reciever and Northcutt back to 4th. though Shaw will probably gain more yards recieving, i don't think he'll have as many catches (don't know how scoring is set up in your league).
1 pt. per 10 yds
6 pts. per TD
PS - Quincy Morgan *and* Andre Davis are available off waivers...are either "better" than Northcutt? I selected him, as you stated, b/c he returns kicks and he seems to get more receptions per game than the others.
Morgan is the actual number 1 reciever. last year he led Cleveland in receptions. he's also the Browns secondary kick returner, including a 40+ yard return last week. Andre Davis is great, and has all kinds of talent. he and Northcutt had over 100 yards receiving last week. Davis is the primary kick returner for the Browns and averages about 20 yards a return. he'd benefit from doing something other than running straight up the middle of the field.
here's this years numbers for this year. Kevin Johnson is still the leading reciever, Northcutt is second. White is Jamel White, he's the 3rd down back. he'll probably rush about 20 yards against the Steelers next week.:
