    Fantasy Question. Please Help Me!

    So I have Aaron Rodgers and Matt Cassel. Disclaimer is I'm a HUGE Vikings Fan. Do I start Rodgers against the Saints. Or do I start Cassel against the terrible Bills defense. Cassel will also be throwing to Bowe. What should I do. I really dont want to have to cheer for the Packers tonight. Idk why I drafted him haha. Skol Vikings.

    No emotions in fantasy football.

    Rodgers is a must start no matter who he plays.

    Easy call. Rodgers is an every week starter. Cassel is a matchup play at best. If you hate the Packers and Rodgers that much, then trade him for picks next year or players now.

    Start Rodgers every week he is healthy from here on out. Playing Cassel over Rodgers is one of the dumbest fantasy moves you could make. It would be like sitting Adrian Peterson for Cedric Benson because you are a Packers fan.

    You don't have to cheer for the Packers. You hope Rodgers throws for 400+ yards and 6 TDs and they lose 45-42.

    But you'd have to be an idiot to start Cassel over Rodgers. Rodgers might be the best quarterback in the NFC.

    Yep, you gotta go with Rodgers.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    If you don't have confidence in Rodgers, you should trade him to some sucker for Donavan McNabb.

    Also, Maclin or Boldin at WR? Maclin is coming off that illness in preseason. I'm leaning towards Boldin.

    Those 2 are almost a wash. Id probably go with Maclin, but you could make a valid case for/against either one.

    This isn't a legit question. The only time Rodgers should ever be out of a lineup is when the Packers are on their bye week.

    Cassel is a mediocre, start him only if you have to, fantasy quarterback. Even if he is playing the Bills. Plus isn't he injured and may or may not play this week?

    I'll pretty much agree with this being a wash but with Maclin vs. Rams D and Boldin vs. Steelers D, I'd personally go with Maclin. JMO

    Yup, especially if you are in a PPR league. Maclin should be solid.
