Lance Moore

Week 3 – WR – Start or Sit – Marques Colston or Lance Moore?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Should I start Lance Moore or Marques Colston in week 3.  My other active WR’s are A.J. Green, Mike Wallace, and at Flex Stevie Johnson in a PPR league.

Answer:

Marques Colston is listed as questionable with a foot injury, so you may want to put Lance Moore in the starting lineup. If you find out right before kickoff that Colston is going to be playing, then I would insert him in your lineup as he’s a more consistent producer compared to Moore.

Your other wide receivers and flex should do plenty of damage this week. A.J. Green @ WAS, Mike Wallace @ OAK, and Stevie Johnson @ CLE are all quality starts this week due to their favorable matchups and should put up big numbers this week.

Good luck!…

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Darrius Heyward-Bey or Lance Moore?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 14th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: I have a WR dillema for week 2.

I have 3 WR spots and a WR/TE flex spot this week. My WR’s are Wes Welker, Roddy White, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Lance Moore? Who would you sit?

Best answer:

I would go with Lance Moore. The Saints are playing the Panthers this week, who don’t have a very solid defense. Brees will be throwing a lot. Although Moore is Brees’ 4th option after Jimmy Graham, Colston, and Sproles, Brees still likes Moore who had 120 yards last week and 1 TD. Darrisu Heyward-Bey had a decent week 1, but I would go with Lance Moore who has a better matchup and a more impressive week 1.

Who To Draft: Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski? (2012)

Posted by in Who To Draft on August 27th, 2012 | Comment »

Jimmy Graham vs. Rob GronkowskiWhich TE do I draft first? Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski?

I expect Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski to go in the beginning of round 2. I think these players do deserve to go where they’re getting drafting. A lot of people are saying these players are getting overdrafted. I disagree. After Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Julio Jones, I put both Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham over any other wide receiver. Both will have over 1,200 receiving yards and at least 8 TDs.  In 2011, both Graham and Gronkowski had over 1,300 receiving yards and over 10 TDs. Gronkowski edged Graham out in both categories: 1,327 yards and 17 TDs compared to 1,310 yards and 11 TDs.

2011 Statistics

ROB GRONKOWSKI (16 games)
90 receptions, 1,327 yards, 17 TDs (124 targets)

JIMMY GRAHAM (16 games)
99 receptions, 1,310 yards, 11 TDs, (149 targets)

2012 Fantasy Rankings

NFL.com’s composite rankings has Ron Gronkowski ranked #13 and Jimmy Graham ranked #15 with Julio Jones in between. Yahoo has Jimmy Graham ranked #11 and Rob Gronkowski #13 with Larry Fitzgerald in between. Very interesting.

2012 Fantasy Outlook

The bottom line is you can’t miss with either of these guys with an early second round pick. You have to take them over the top WR and RB in the next class after the top 5 RBs, top 5 QBs, and top 3 WRs are off the board. If you’re sitting with the #14 or #15 pick in your fantasy draft, if Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski are there, you take them. I have them ranked #10 and #11 after Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson followed by Larry Fitzgerald and Julio Jones.

You can even make the debate that one of these guys is …

Week 7 – RB – Matthews, Jones, Jacobs, or Ivory?

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 23rd, 2010 | Comment »

Question: Who should I start or sit in week 7?

RB:
Ryan Matthews vs. Patriots – Start
Thomas Jones vs. Jaguars – Start
Brandon Jacobs vs. Cowboys – Sit
Chris Ivory vs. Browns – Sit

My instincts tell me to start Ryan Matthews and Thomas Jones. Ryan Matthews is going to be at home against a team that is ranked 20th against the run. If Chargers can put up some early scores, they will run the ball a lot more in the second half. Ryan Matthews has been averaging 5-6 yards per carry the last two weeks despite his low scores. Thomas Jones is up against the Jaguars at home, who have played poorly against the run, enough said.

WR:
Larry Fitzgerald vs. Seahawks – Start
Deon Branch vs. Chargers – Start
Kenny Britt vs. Eagles – Start
Lance Moore vs. Browns
Jabar Gaffney vs. Raiders
Davone Bess vs. Steelers

TE :
Vernon Davis vs. Panthers
Benjamin Watson vs. Saints
Tony Moeaki vs. Jaguars

Answer:

I would play Thomas Jones and Chris Ivory. Ivory actually plays against the Browns tomorrow and Jones plays the Jaguars. Those are two of the easiest match ups you will ever get. Keep your WRs as is. Vernon Davis at TE obviously. That’s not even a question.
