Fantasy football question (who to start?)....

Fantasy football question (who to start?)....

With Brady being my QB and obviously out for the season, his backup was Bulger (garbage).

I took a gamble on Kyle Orton a few weeks back and it paid off HUGE (30+ points vs the Lions last week).

But, Kyle Orton, is well, still Kyle Orton.

With a new coach and Bulger given the start the rest of the season, can he overcome the shitty offensive line and put up big numbers this week?

So what, I need to know from the fantasy football nerds, is Orton or Bulger?

Re: Fantasy football question (who to start?)....

I had Bulger and dumped him a few weeks ago even when he was starting.  I can't see him doing much against a much improved Redskins defense that gets back Jason Taylor this week.  Bulger does not have time to throw because of a terrible offensive line.  Now, Orton has quietly become one of the best passers in the league and a top 10 fantasy QB.  You can't afford to not start him this week based on recent play.  He may not have a big game against Atlanta, but the key to fantasy football is going with the numbers, and not taking risky chances like betting Bulger to come out of a slump.  Further, this game is in a dome and favors a deep passer like Orton who has a proven arm, and Bulger is playing outdoors this week out of his comfortable dome.  Believe me, I have been there and I luckily have a few good QB's this season, so I am not in trouble this year.  However, you can't sit Orton and start Bulger, period! 

I may eat crow for even giving you advice on this, but 9 times out of 10 you will be safer going with the proven starter, not a hunch.

Hope this helps!

Marc Bulger (at WAS): Bulger is back as the starter for the Rams, which is a good thing for the rest of the season. But he's not worth starting on your Fantasy team this week. The Redskins are only No. 20 in pass defense, but Bulger playing outdoors hasn't worked out so well recently. He has less than 200 passing yards in six of his past seven games outdoors with three touchdowns and 10 interceptions over that span. The Redskins are banged up in the secondary, and the Rams are coming off a bye, which should help Bulger. But St. Louis has too many problems to count on Bulger right now.

I don't know shit about fantasy football but Chicago is a top Hilton pick this week if that means anything to you.

Going to start Orton. Can't play Bulger until that offensive line does something.

You got anyone else good on your team? What is the prize in your league? Is it some big ballers league where you win a Porsche?
