And 10-4, Rusty. I sense a consensus building here.
Yeah, I am shocked NAS made a decent point about football for once, even if it is about fantasy.
You'll be kicking yourself if Rodgers has a good game. At the end of the day, each he and Roethlisberger may put up similar numbers, but it's hard to ignore Rodger's upside as opposed to Ben's. Each has lost key WRs, but Jordy Nelson is good to go. I also don't trust Asmaougha in the nickel, to be honest. The 49ers seemed insecure annnouncing he won the nickel job after Culliver blew out his leg. Something smells there.
There has to be concern with Baluga down and Aldon Smith on whoever their LT is, but I think they just give him help on Smith.
PLus, Week 1s, tend to be high scoring because teams have gameplanned for that opener for weeks, if not months.
Agree. Also need to keep in mind the rushing yards Rodgers might get if pressured and forced out of the pocket (it might not be a lot, but in fantasy terms, it can make a 2-3 point difference).
