    Re: WTS (Who To Start?): Week 2

    Okay, I have one more question. I drafted Dallas Clark in the seventh round of my 10 team draft and after his injury last Sunday night, I think I need to pick up another TE to cover me for at least this Sunday. Considering Rosario's big day for Carolina last Sunday I am considering him or Bo Scaife for Tennessee. Scaife is going against the Bengals, any thoughts?

    i'm thinking walter and morris.

    walter really did great for me in week 1 and i think he'll have a solid fantasy season...

    i'm not ready to give up on ginn, but he seems the clear-cut choice to head to the bench in this situation

    thoughts?
    I do agree you are in a tight spot. Like you stated, Walter will like give you less variance in his week-to-week starts, but I think Ginn has a much better chance of putting up some big weeks. You just have to decide how many points you think you are going to need from that WR spot, if you need a big day, I'd go with Ginn, but if you just need 5 points, I'd go with Walter.

    As for the Flex, I'm pretty sold on Sammy Morris. He's stealing a lot of carries from Laurence Maroney and he had a good week last week. I always prefer starting a RB over a WR at the flex unless I have no real choice.

    I'm assuming Fasano's not available? Pennington doesn't have a big arm, and will check down to the TE. I think Fasano will get a lot of looks.

    Not sure about Rosario or Scaife.

    Which 2 would you start out of this group:

    Reggie Bush @ WAS
    Earnest Gaham v. ATL
    Chris Jonson @ CIN
    Matt Forte @ CAR
    Ricky Williams @ ARI

    Bush / Johnson

    Definitely Ginn and Morris. No question.

    Scaife was a good (not great) option when VY was favoring him. Now, with Collins throwing the ball, I'm not sure how many touches he will get. In a ten team league, you should have better options on the waiver wire than Scaife and Rosario. What about Olsen from CHI, Scheffler from DEN, Miller from OAK?

    Fasano was available. In the end, I seem to agree with your rationale. I really only need a tight end for this week, because as soon as Dallas Clark is back, he will be in the lineup. But with Rosario only practicing a couple of times because of his foot, I think Fasano should put up better numbers. Plus, I'd rather have my tight end go up against the Cardinals than the Bears.

    Gosh, Caveat. I'd almost sit Bush and play Graham. He should have a great week against the Falcons, especially since Gruden said he will get him involved more.

    I also like players at home versus the road, and while I haven't checked, Bush can't be faster/better on grass, can he?

    After this week's effort, Graham is a must-play every week for me. He's just an impressive runner that never seems to go down on first contact and has actually shown a bit of explosion as well.

    I'll rotate in Chris Johnson (who I started this week), Matt Forte, and Reggie Bush based on the matchups.

    Even though I didn't draft a RB in the first 3 rounds, I really like the group I ended up with.

    As long as you avoided Tom Brady and Marques Colston in the first couple rounds, it looks like you ended up with a pretty good team.

    Too bad I had to draft LT who seems to be falling apart and Willis McGahee who can't stay healthy.
