Newton or Rivers

7 posts in this topic

I have a tight matchup this week in FF and I'm climbing up the win column. For my QB's, I have Cam Newton and Phillip Rivers. Rivers has been on a tear the last 2 weeks, but I started Cam against NYG and obviously he put up big numbers. Homerism aside, I have a +2 line in my FF game; should I start Cam in AZ or Rivers at Oakland? My worry with Cam is he can be inconsistent and the AZ corners.

If fantasy football is more important to you than your team go with the projections.

Although he has played well, I wouldn't trust Rivers.

 

 

Newton is a top 5 QB, roll with him.

Fantasy Football should have nothing to do with "your" team.

 

Cam won me a league in FF his rookie season but I passed him up in drafts many times since.  He is one of the few Panthers with a relevant FF presence but you can't reach for him on draft day just because he is your guy, especially in leagues full of Panther fans wanting him also.

 

AZ defense is no slouch.  WR's will be covered, they will keep a LB as a spy on Cam all day.  Their game plan should be to make our running game beat them, limiting Cam's fantasy potential.

 

I don't trust Rivers either but his matchup with the Oakland defense is marginally better.

 

Vick against Giants D sounds like best option.

 

Second-guessing department;  I hate divisional matchups for big fantasy numbers because both teams know each other so well.  Panther offense has improved each week, they have had bye week to prepare, no big home field advantage in that stadium (not loud).  I'd have to take Cam

I love me some Cam, but I just feel Rivers is going to shred Oakland.

Can't make my own thread.

BUT I benched Julius Thomas for Jordan Cameron in both my Leagues this week. Brian Hoyer's injury really screwed me. Maybe Manning will choose to throw to his Many WRs for TDs this weekend to make me feel better?

Ahhhh, who am I kidding. Julius Thomas will pick this week to repeat or top his week one performance.
