Ridley or Dwyer ? WHIR

6 posts in this topic

PPR format

Ridley or Dwyer? Ridley is getting carries but the HOU run defense it pretty good. Dwyer is the starter now and has good YPC and usually catches some balls (pause)

Got Sproles and Forte also starting

This question makes me feel good to be a Dwyer owner....Dwyer doesn't have a great matchup either and has performed nowhere near to the level that Ridley has...Dwyer also still has competition for carries and Big Ben may not be back limiting red zone opportunities....I understand Ridley also has some competition but I like him more as a better player in a more dynamic offense where he won't be the defenses first, second or possibly even third concern

I like Dwyer. Here's why: When I watch the Pats go against elite defenses I notice that Bellicheck really shows his creativity. In other words, people like Lloyd and Vereen and Edelman have big games out of nowhere. He spreads out the targets, carries, and schemes. That's just my observation, Ridley could end up with 15+ carries but Houston has only allowed 1 rushing td all year so that alone doesn't guarantee a serviceable day. Meanwhile, Dwyer is the starter and will be much more likely to get chances in the redzone compared with Ridley since he is the new Bettis and they are a more traditional short-yardage offense than the Pat's.

I was iffy towards Dwyer with no Big Ben but Batch looked pretty good last game, i will continue to let this marinate. Thanks for replies...

What if I throw Jacquizz Rodgers into the mix against a crappy Carolina DEF? :unsure:

i'll say ridley even though houstons only allowed 2 rushing TD's, both to detroit. hard to sit a guy who is now 7th in yards, 8th in attempts, 2nd in rushing TD's and has a 5 game TD streak. ridley put 151 on denver's top 5 run D so maybe there is hope this week against houston. question is, would we be benching comparable guys like gore, morris, richardson, charles?
