Dunn

 

The qb's are about even. I think they both will do really well. My brain tells me Plummer but my gut tells me Palmer. I really don't think one will greatly out shine the other, so I think they are both solid starts, and will rack up 200+ yds and at least 2tds but I will say Palmer.

Int deductions make Palmer a slightly better choice and I think Cincy will make a run this yr similar to what the chargers did last yr.

 

Definitley Dunn--they love this guy and it seems they've been phasing out TJ on goal line carries; Bennett's a bit knicked up and I would rather have an injury-free player in the mix for week 1.

I have the same decison to make. I'm leaning towards Palmer.

I'd go with Dunn. Bennett doesn't see the ball inside the 10 (3 tries last year in 10 games) while Dunn sometimes does (21 carries over 16 games).

 

As for QB, I like Palmer's matchup better, although you've got a nice tandem there.

I wouldn't touch Bennett until he proves he can play four quarters without spraining or pulling something. As for the QB's I think Plummer is the safer veteran choice for the first week but I think Palmer has more upside. Close call.

THANKS GUYS...you all gave some good insight....one last question though

 

I'm starting C Johnson as well....does that mean that I should lean towards starting Plummer?

The problem with starting 2 players from the same team is that if it's a bad game for the team then both players scrub out. in this case though, I don't see a problem. While Palmer is no Peyton Manning, he could be at some point in his career, maybe sonner than later, and last year I had the luxury of owning both Manning and Harrison and had no choice BUT to start them both. When you own players that have the potential to put up large numbers like CJ and Palmer....

 

...let me put it this way...I would never tell you to sit CJ, you proably would think I was crazy if I did. Who's getting him the ball? If you are confident that CJ is gonna eat the Brown's D thaen you gotta be confident that Palmer will do the same. Follow your gut. I like Palmer Vs. the Cleveland D better than Plummer Vs. Mia. Cincy and Cle. shout have a big game and Chad still needs to back up his trash talking from last year.

Yup. Play who you think will do the best, even if they happen to be on the same team. You're going to face this dilemma all year unless you trade one of them. I'd roll with it. Don't forget, the broncos barely managed to get by the fish at home 17-14 last year. This time, the fish are healthier and at home (where Shanny is 0-6 against MIA). Given the aerial circus that occurred between the browns and bengals last year, there would be no way I could stay away!!

Everybody talks about that big "56-48 shootout" last year between the Bengals and Browns, but nobody mentions that they also played earlier in the 2004 season at Cleveland (as they are this weekend), and the Bengals lost 34-17, with Palmer managing only 148 yards, 1 TD, and an INT.

 

I've got Plummer and Palmer on my team too, and I'm going with Plummer this week. Palmer's upside is intriguing, but that's all it is at this point: Upside. Plummer's like a blue chip stock, where Palmer's more of a start-up IPO.
