Who to start at WR? (Edited 12/18/09 01:22PM by qtowndogg)
Well it's week 2 of my ESPN fantasy playoffs, and I need a little help at the wide receiver position.  I guess it's a good problem to have, but I have 4 WR's that are in ESPN's top 20 for Week 15's projections.  Steve Smith (Carolina), Sidney Rice (Minnesota), Miles Austin (Dallas), or Greg Jennings (Green Bay)?  I'm leaning towards Smith and Rice, but who do you think I should start?  This is a standard-scoring league with NO points-per-reception, 1 point for each 10 yards, and 6 points for each TD.

Here are each player's matchups:

Steve Smith, CAR: vs. Minnesota (Sunday @ 8:20pm)
Sidney Rice, MIN: @ Carolina (Sunday @ 8:20pm)
Miles Austin, DAL: @ New Orleans (Saturday @ 8:20pm)
Greg Jennings, GB: @ Pittsburgh (Sunday @ 4:15pm)

NOTE:  Smith and Rice don't play until Sunday night, but Austin plays Saturday night and Jennings on Sunday afternoon.  I will need to close this poll Saturday night for that purpose.

I would never start Miles Austin because I would never have a Cowboy player on my fantasy team.

I'm definitely gonna start Rice (he's Favre's go-to guy), but I don't know which one of the three to go with at the other WR spot.  The other 3 are all going against tough defenses, but each have the potential to bust a long play.  I'm leaning towards Smith, but when Austin's on, he scores a ton.

Start Miles Regardless, He Does At Least Score A TD If He Is On Lockdown For Yards. If He Doesn't Score, He Does Rack Up Pretty Good Yards.

Looks like you were good with everyone except Rice.

I started Rice and Smith, because Rice had been my most consistent performer up until this week.  I'm still poised to win this week, unless the other Steve Smith (from New York) scores more than 23 points against me.
