    Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    I've got a playoff game this week after a first round bye. News just broke on ESPN that Tebow will be starting for the Broncos in place of Kyle Orton. I have Brandon Lloyd in my starting lineup. I picked him up after week 4...I started 1-3 and I finished 10-3, so I am reluctant to take him out of the lineup, but it is a tough choice with Orton starting. So for that reason, I'd like some input. Should I take Lloyd out for Maclin? Or trust that a young, inexperienced QB in Tebow will find Lloyd often enough and get the ball to him?

    Feel free to give any other input on my lineup.

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    I think I would go Maclin, I like Lloyd but he will already be matched up against Asomugha I am guessing and last time they played Oakland he only had one catch. Plus who knows what kind of game Tebow is going to have in his first start.

    Is Britt available or anyone else? I'm not so hot on Stevie Johnson or Lloyd. I would also put Maclin in.

    I'll put the best available WR below. Also, how much stock do you put into the points projections? Brandon Marshall, for example, was one of my draft picks and is ALWAYS projected in the 20s, but never delivers.

    Other info for consideration...
    1 point per 7 receiving yards
    0.2 Points per reception
    4 point bonus for 200+ Receiving Yards
    1 point per 30 individual return yards



    Top Available WR (List sorted by fantasy points scored)
    1. Danny Amendola, STL (155.6 points this season, Pos. Rank: 44)
    2. Derrick Mason, BAL (143.17 points this season, Pos. Rank: 23)
    3. Mike Thomas, JAC (132.18 points this season, Pos. Rank: 35
    4. Davone Bess, MIA (131.04 points this season, Pos. Rank: 43)
    5. Pierre Garcon, IND (125.07 points this season, Pos. Rank: 36)
    6. Brandon Marshall, MIA (124.49 points this season, Pos. Rank: 41)
    7. Mario Manningham, NYG (124.43 points this season, Pos. Rank: 31)
    8. Danny Woodhead, NE (121.46 points per season, Pos. Rank: 28)
    9. Nate Washington, TN (120.97 points this season, Pos. Rank: 34)

    Jacoby Ford, OAK
    Robert Meachem, NO
    Roy Williams, DAL

    I'm from Denver, and Broncos season ticket holder. You gotta go Maclin. Broncos will try to run the ball and protect Tebow by throwing short passes. I don't see Lloyd having a big game.

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    I have lloyd and I benched him. He can't handle double coverage.

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    Have a very similar dilemma this week in my fantasy playoff match-up. Have to bench one of Fitzgerald, Lloyd or Maclin.

    I sat Lloyd. Like you, this will be the first time I've benched him since picking him up early this year. Good luck (to both of us).

    I'd start Green-Ellis over Torain. Green-Ellis has been solid. I've got him in two of my leagues

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    play Maclin

    I didn't know Tebow was starting so I sat Vincent Jackson instead of Lloyd. I'm sure watching Denver play will be almost as fun as watching that A-hole go off on Thursday.

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    Well I have V Jax on my bench, so my advice may not be good. But with Tebow throwing the ball, I would probably do Maclin.

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    As a Vin-Jack owner who benched him (SON OF A!!!!), I would go with Maclin. Lloyd with Tebow? No way. Of course, I also started Dwayne Bowe on a zero point week, so, you get what you pay for :-)


    - You're from Cedar Rapids, how come you didn't go to U of I?

    - I already went to high school once.

    Re: Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Lloyd...help?

    Well, I benched Lloyd in favor of Maclin, which ended up netting me 1.69 points (18.86 for Maclin as opposed to 17.17. Unfortunately, I benched Steve Johnson and his 17 points for Pierre Garcon and his 7.

    Luckily for me, Vick had an AWESOME second half, Ryan Torian and Jamaal Charles each got me double digits (23.06 for Charles and 19.16 for Torain). It also helped that my opponent benched 28 points in Austin Collie and that Peyton Hillis had a pedestrian day. Janikowski got me 12 and I still have Gronkowski and the Bears D to play tonight and tomorrow. My opponent has Adrian Peterson tomorow and Welker and the Packers D for tonight. I'm up 139.25 (Projected:160.68) to 68.88 (Projected:102.54) so I am going to chalk up a win. That'll make it ten wins a row and I'm on to the league championship game.

    Thanks for your input; Look out for more posts asking for advice in the coming week!!
