Anyone benching Brees today? (1 Viewer)

Am I the only one considering benching superman Drew Brees this weekend? Anyone else concerned about the weather?

 
No Bush and that offense takes a dive. No ability to stretch the field the same way. Combined with the London mud, I'm looking elsewhere.

Brees out, Garcia in.

 
So it's dry now...what about the 2nd quarter when the damp filed turns to mud? Remember last year? Combined with winds. Skeptical this game has 300 combined passing yards.

 
Colston owner - was curious about the weather and field conditions also, hopefully we hear something soon.

Didn't it rain last year? From Rotoworld...According to weather.com, the forecast for Sunday's Chargers-Saints game at Wembley Stadium projects temperatures in the low 50s and only a 20 percent chance of rain.The sky will be partly cloudy with winds from 8MPH, which won't greatly affect passing. The pitch is still a concern and the game threatens to be more low scoring than a normal battle of such potent offenses, but there's no reason to consider benching your best fantasy players in this game.
 
I am starting him over Schaub...and praying. Long thread about the weather and field conditions over the pond is around here somewhere. Shouldn't be as bad as last year so i am hoping Brees lights them up.

 
NFL network Phil Simms reports damp field, messy conditions are expected. There will be scattered showers, and the filed will be torn up. Wembley stadium is in a wind zone; huge gusts. Prognosis negative for the passing game.

 
This is a constant concern whenever there is rain/sloppy field.

Why does everyone assume passing game is gonna be hurt by a sloppy field? I would think this would actually help the offense as the d-back has a harder time covering and the d-line has a harder time pass rushing.

Because last year Eli Manning in the same stadium went 8/22 for 59 yards. He actually ran a touchdown in that game. Granted the conditions were worse but the players said it was like "playing on ice".

:thumbdown: Weather.com is showing 20% chance of rain, currently winds are at 8 MPH and partly cloudy.

Better weather link in the longer thread; not so optimistic either. They precict a fair amount of rain. Weather is sometimes unpredictable, and people seem to be disagreeing. Brees will have a better chance than most, but 160 yards, 1 TD would be generous.There are better options on my 12 team league waiver wire.

:thumbdown: This is not a normal NFL field by any stretch...trace amounts of water will play havoc. Use Brees at your own peril.

One thing the skeptical people are forgetting: Last years sloppy mess in London involved a then-slumping Eli Manning and an atrocious Dolphin team led by Cleo friggin Lemon. Needless to say, NO & SD have infintely more talent to endure weather conditions. Regarding Simms' comments on weather, I think Ill rely on sites that, you know, exist for the purposes of informing people about the weather.

Oh yeah, and it was against Miami, who at the time was considered the worst team in the league and that week Manning was a top 5 qb play.

Excellent point about Manning continuing his slump in this game and Cleo♦ Lemon being, well... Cleo Lemon.I had Manning last year and had to watch them play in slop, I have Brees and would feel like I was taken if I did it again this year!!
 
I'm considering starting Jason Campbell against Detroit.

EDIT TO ADD: I just plugged in Campbell. :fingerscrossed:

Almost put Colston in over TO, but left TO in, (also have Steve Smith). I'm just leery of this offense without Bush, Colston putting up a goose egg last week, and now concerns about field/weather conditions.

Brees will do better than that today. :popcorn:
 
This is why you never bench the #1 QB in fantasy... just stupid to. He looks amazing. People over-thik and out coach themselves all the time

Oh, Brees is in my lineup along with LT and Steve Smith. My first attempt at an old school "Kee-Rock" (For the old timers!)

$$$$$$

 
Hey, I'm the one that started the thread and benched Brees. DOH! But Campbell has played solid, and at least I got one thread right today. Started Santana Moss in all my leagues. $$$ 1 out of 2 ain't bad. ;)h

 
Yes I think so...but weather concerns were possible valid. Misinformation helped my opponent bench Moore in our $500 league. Brees is a machine, and this offense is perfect for him.

 
You want a link? Didn't feel it was appropriate to clutter the thread. No BS...tell ya what; I'll PM you. THE VALUE OF THE KEE ROCK!!!

No matter you did you acted like a tool. Giving bad responses in a thread to intentionally spread misinformation is toolish.

Ok, "Ookie". Sorry I "spread misinformation" by making it sound like the field would be a mess. I trust everyone was hanging on my every word...it's an exercise in reverse karma for my own benefit. Years back there was this guy, named "Kee-rock", and he.....oh nevermind. Sorry you read my posts and played JT O'Sullivan or something. It's a hobby.

Believe.
