Forum Question: Which QB would you start in Week 15, Eli Manning (vs.Was) or Tony Romo (@TB)? (view post by mjht)
FST_Brent: When Eli stated he should be considered in the same class as Brady before the season started everyone laughed – but quietly he is on pace to break Dan’s passing record along with Brady, Rodgers, and Brees. He is playing the best football of his life and if anyone watched the Skins/Pats game last week it was clear the Skins have given up. The Skins might be one of the worst tackling teams in football so any pass Eli makes could go to the house.
FST_Dustin: This is a coinflip, but I give the slight edge to Romo. I think the Cowboys are going to put up a lot of points against the Bucs, and Romo should have a big game.
FST_Mike: I think both are solid starts this week, but I would go with Eli at home against the Skins. The Skins have been torched through the air lately and this could turn into a shoot out.
Forum Question: Which QB would you start in Week 15, Eli Manning (vs.Was) or Matt Ryan (vs.Jac)? (view post by kalog13)
FST_Brent: So I love both as written about in the start/sit post but out of the two I think the play is Manning. He is having the best season of his life and I think the Skins don’t care anymore. Teams break tackles vs them as if they were a high school team. I would go Eli as anyone (and Manningham is finally back) can break tackles and take it to the house at anytime.
FST_Dustin: Eli has been an awesome fantasy QB this year and I think he has to be your play. The Jags have a pretty tough D, and I think the Giants/Redskins game could turn into a shootout. Eli already has a career high in passing yards for a season, and I think he will add at least another 300 yards against the Skins.
FST_Mike: Both are nice starts this week, but I think you have to go with Eli. He torched the Cowboys last week and I expect a repeat this week against the Skins.
Forum Question: Which QB would you start in Week 15, Matt Ryan (vs.Jac) or Cam Newton (@Hou)? (view post by roccotherook)
FST_Brent: I love Ryan vs the JAGs this week but in the playoffs I don’t think I could sit Cam who got me there….I would go Newton as I would not have the guts to go Ryan.
FST_Dustin: This one is a total coin flip for me. I want to say Newton is the safer play, but his matchup is a tough one. Ryan is at home, but he has a somewhat of a tricky matchup against the Jags. The Jags are a little banged up on D, but they are still going to give the Falcons a hard time. I know Ryan is on a short week, but that doesn’t really effect my decision because the Jags D is on a short week as well. This is a coin flip but I am going to give the tie breaker to the home team. My vote is for Matty Ice at home.
FST_Mike: Tough call here. I think Matt Ryan is a nice start this week at home against Jacksonville. However, Cam Newton may still be the safer play because of his rushing ability and I typically go with the safer play in the playoffs.
Forum Question: Which QB would you start in Week 15, Tony Romo (@TB) or Cam Newton (@Hou)? (view post by Tewhitte)
FST_Brent: Wow this is close – Cams legs make him the safer play but based on the game Romo is coming off of and the match-up I think you have to go with him here. It is a must must win game for Romo and the Boys so no letting up – they will score as many points as possible.
FST_Dustin: Newton has a tough matchup and Romo is coming off his best game of the season. Newton has been great this year, but Romo is my pick. He has the easier matchup, and more weapons on offense.
FST_Mike: Cam has a touch matchup against the Texans, but should still get it done on the ground. However, I think you have to go with Romo here. The Cowboys have a full arsenal of healthy receivers and are competing for a playoff spot so they should be playing with some motivation.
Forum Question: Which QB would you start in Week 15, Tim Tebow (vs.NE) or Matthew Stafford (@Oak)? (view post by itsrichardbd)
FST_Brent: Insane that you just grabbed Tebow off the wire. But, I would still go Stafford here – he has a nice match-up as well and I think has a higher ceiling than Tebow. Gut call here but at least two TDs to Calvin this week.
FST_Dustin: In some cases I think Tebow is worth the gamble, but not in this one. The Raiders give up a ton of yards and points as well as the Pats. So I say go with the safer pick in Stafford. Trust me when I say I really want to pick Tebow in this one, but it’s just too much of a gamble in my opinion. Good luck this week.
FST_Mike: Tim Tebow has a nice matchup this week against the Patriots horrible secondary. However, Stafford has a decent matchup as well and is a much safer play this week. You definitely want to try to limit risks, especially in the playoffs.
