    Fantasy Football Advice

    I would like some other people's opinion on who I should start this week for my #3 WR. I am torn between Coles and Chad Johnson.

    Johnson - Typically does very well against the Browns and had a huge game last time out against them. Also the Browns don't have a great defense. The bad thing is he hasn't gotten hardly any targets this year.

    Coles - Had a good week last week, and Arizona's defense against the pass is just average. However, he is questionable.

    Yahoo! has Coles ranked higher while ESPN has Johnson ranked higher. Johnson is probably riskier, but I'm thinking he might have a huge game. Thoughts?

    That is truely a tough call. I would go with Coles because Johnson hasn't done much this year and they have really struggled on O this entire season. It really is as close to a toss up as you can get, but I would go with Coles.

    I think I'd go with Johnson. It is risky because right now the Cincinnati offense is looking awful, but if there's a game that can spark them it's against Cleveland. Remember the 11-touchdown game last year when they met up. I think their offense, and specifically Palmer and Johnson, are due for a big game.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    Re: Fantasy Football Advice

    Who is this Chad Johnson you speak of?

    If you look at the statistics Arizona has given up 192.7 receiving yards per game and 2 touchdowns.

    Cleveland has given up 209 yards and 2 touchdowns. But there last two games were against Pittsburgh (bad weather) and Baltimore (Joe Flacco). When you look at the Dallas game, Cleveland gave up 321 passing yards and 1 TD.

    I looked up Johnson's stats against Cleveland last year:
    week 2 @ Cleveland: 11 rec 209 yds, 2 td
    week 16 Cleveland: 4 rec. 44 yds

    Cincinnati's offense looked better last week against the Giants (Palmer threw for 286 yds & 1 td).

    Also factor in that Cincinnati's & Cleveland's defenses are terrible so there is a possibility of a high scoring game.

    I would be inclined to go with Johnson.

    Of course since I recommended Johnson, Coles will have the better game.
