Do I start Sammy Watkins?

 

I have Calvin Johnson but he is on bye. This is going to be a rough week for me as a lot of my players are on bye. 

 

If I don't play Sammy, I have to drop him to fill his spot because of the above. Available WR is Pierre Garcon against what could be a blowout (garbage time) against New England.

 

Sammy is scaring me with talk of taking plays off if his ankle starts bugging him and not doing any crazy moves (just running in a straight line) after catching the ball. My head tells to stop being a homer and pick up garcon at the cost of watkins, my gut tells me Sammy's going to have a great game against the fish!

What do I do? (Please no Sammy trash talk)

If he's active I would start him. Especially if not starting him means having to release him.

I think I will. I don't have much of a shot to win because half my team is on bye or injured.Better than dropping Watkins and still losing! 

 

My lineup vs my opponent:

 

Me

Rivers

Ingram

McCluster

Diggs

Amari Cooper

Delanie Walker

Sammy Watkins

Gould

Steelers

 

Bench

Roethlisberger

Forte (Injured)

Calvin Johnson (Bye)

Kelce (Bye)

Cardinals (Bye)

 

Opponent

Tom Brady

Woodhead

Peterson

Jeffery

Cooks

Eifert (28 points  :sick: )

Allen Robinson

Dawson

Vikings

 

Bench

Carr

Vernon Davis

Sims

Hyde

John Brown

 

I gave up Riddick to pick up McCluster, which I now think was a mistake since I don't think I can win with Eifert's 28 points. Riddick was decent, but on bye, and snatched up quickly.  (DeAngelo Williams, Langford, and CJ Anderson all picked up before me on waiver since I'm in 1st)

Yeah, you're probably toast this week. Keep Sammy around. If healthy, I view him as a solid WR2/flex play for the rest of the season. Point has been made...I expect him to get his targets.

Thanks, I agree. Just needed the vote of confidence  :beer:

Just coming back to say great advice! haha. I will probably still lose, but I'd feel like an idiot if I had dropped Watkins. 

 

Only down by 7, and need Rivers/Gould to outscore Alshon Jeffery, and Danny Woodhead by that amount. A tall order I know, I am just glad my team showed up today!

I'm glad it worked out in your favor. Seems like you have a fairly decent chance. I think Rivers and Woodhead both have huge games. Jeffery is a ? for me, as SD seems to have a pretty solid secondary. Gould might be the key to you pulling out the victory.

I am in a similar situation this week. I am currently up by 12 points (standard scoring). I have Robbie Gould, and my opponent has Malcolm Floyd. I'm feeling pretty confident, but you never know.

Sounds like you have a good shot, with Keenan Allen out Rivers is going to key in on someone, but I bet it is Gates and Stevie more than Floyd. Even with Floyd and no ppr, you have a solid chance.

Ok as we all know, Sammy has not been getting the ball these last two games, but Rex has said they need to! So with that under consideration and the Chiefs allowing the 2nd most average fantasy points to wide receivers, do I start Sammy Watkins? This is a must win for me. My other wideouts are:

 

Calvin Johnson (locked in at WR1 Thank God)

Stefon Diggs @ATL

Amari Cooper @TEN

 

So basically pick 2 of the 3 WR's for my WR2 and Flex.

Weather is gonna be crappy. I don't see it.

Then again, rex knows that Reid knows that rex plans to run the ball, so obviously I should not choose the glass of wine in front of me...

Unfortunately because of the weather, and Sammy's past two games, I didn't  :wallbash:  but I still won!

 

Now the question is Sammy this week against the Texan pass rush. I think I have to start him.

Me too, but it's either him or Stefon Diggs against Seattle. I like Sammy's upside better
