Week 1 Rankings: QB | RB | WR | TE
I’m a Philly homer so i need advice on starting Ertz or Cameron? I’m thinking Ertz, but then again being a Philly homer…
My receivers are Demarious Thomas / Cruz / with Maclin in flex spot. But, its hard for me to leave Jordan Matthews on the bench for same reasons stated above!
While I’m at it, I’ve got Forte and Bush as RB’s with Sproles and Pierre Thomas on the bench.
And lastly, I’m starting Foles over Cutler but reading Cutler’s going to have a great year?
I feel both your “pain” and excitement with the Philly fandom, but all that said, you’ve gotta leave your allegiances out of your start/sit decisions.
I can get behind Foles over Cutler this week, no problem. But as for Mathews, Ertz and Sproles, I’m likely taking a wait and see approach to see how this offense pans out.
Ertz has a bright future ahead of him and should be a valuable piece in Chip Kelly’s offense, but Jordan Cameron is going to be the focal point of the Browns’ passing attack. He’s the choice in week one.
