I obviously drafted Mike Wallace a lot earlier than Kenbrell Thompkins, and I'm a Dolphins fan so I would love to start Wallace. However, the Fins are playing the Browns week 1 (who I think have a decent secondary) and you know they're going to try and keep Wallace out of the game completely. Thompkins is the #2 receiver right now for NE but they're playing Buffalo, and I just feel like he's going to be getting more looks from Tom Brady. What do you guys think?

It's really one or the other. My WR1 is Brandon Marshall and I have three starting RBs so one will take up my flex. This is a PPR league.

Week 1?..... Wallace no question about it. Just evaluate going forward. Miami is a team that is intriguing to me.

Please give me your thoughts. Just finished drafting: http://forums.rotowo...howtopic=363751

Thanks for the reply. Initially I felt it was Wallace no question but I've just been hearing so much about Thompkins.

me too, and he got stolen from me in a later round lol, right before I picked. It's a situation to pay attention to. If you're looking at benching Wallace though, your other WR must be pretty good.

Well like I said, I have Brandon Marshall as my WR1 so it's either Wallace or Thompkins at WR2.

As a Bills fan, I say Thompkins. Our secondary is a joke and Brady could throw for 500 yards.

10 team, H2H, 2QB, PPR Yahoo league. Standard scoring.

The play is Wallace.

Until Wallace falls flat on his face, you should start your WR's the way you drafted them. I know Wallace hasn't seen a lot of good press, but you can't bench him for a rookie who's had a good preseason.

I think those of you making a case for Wallace definitely succeeded. Goin' with Wallace week 1.
