Who to start in Week 17? Aaron Rodgers or Alex Smith?

Posted by in NFL Week 17 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on January 4th, 2012 | 2 Comments

Question:

Week 17 feels like a bye week, it’s very weird. Normally this would be a no brainer, but should I start Aaron Rodgers or Alex Smith? Rodgers might rest quite a bit like he did last week, and at least Smith will play the whole game and it will be against the awful St. Louis Rams defense.

Also, what about Larry Fitzgerald. I know it’s “rest ’em” week, but I have a feeling he’ll get more playing time than is assumed. Or maybe I just need him to. Maybe I can “will” him to play. I’ve already had to sit Vincent Jackson and play Devin Aromashodu in his place, and my other options are Dwayne Bowe and Josh Morgan. Which is why I still have Fitzgerald in there. I’ve also had to sit Tony Gonzalez and sub with John Carlson. I’m assuming that Indy will sit their defensive starters, too, so I’m going to take a chance with Fred Jackson. Any advice on the QB and WR situations, though?

Who in the world would have a championship game in week 17 anyway?┬áMy other RB is Chris Johnson, so I’m good there.

Answer:

I would probably go with Smith given the uncertainty of GB players resting. I would also go with Bowe for the same reason. I would rather take my chances with players that will play the whole game then get screwed because a team decides to rest their players.

    GB has been quoted as playing the full game to win no matter what so rodgers would be the smart choice. I wouldn’t play fitz because more than likely the game will be meangingless and even if it does mean something GB has a strong D
