Crayton VS Holmes? Gimmee a break on a 1 week matchup

Sometimes fantasy sports bring feuds even amongst staff. Mr Scott J Pachman (one of our writers) believes that this week….YES BOYS….This week only that Holmes is a better play then Crayton? As ya’all know I’m loving the Creaky, Creasy, Crayton. I realize he only put up 8.6 points in a traditional PPR league last week. But lets delve into the numbers. Last week Crayton played Tennessee. A pretty solid D if you ask me. Yes, I do realize that a player whose name I cannot even pronounce Seyi Ajirotutu  had 5 catches for 74 yards for SD. There is no way he repeats that feat. Especially with Naane most likely returning.

Let’s look at Crayton’s fantasy points the last 3 weeks: 8.6 (against TEN), 15.2 (against NE), 17.7 (against STL). Let’s look at Santonio Holmes fantasy points: 7.3 (against GB), 8.1 (against DEN), 7.1 (against MIN). This isn’t even close. Assuming that Holmes and Crayton are even CLOSE to the same player you have to defer to the QB. It’s obvious that Rivers is a top 5 fantasy QB. One cannot say that for a Mark Sanchez. Sanchez isn’t a bad QB but we all have to admit that he is a bit erratic.

This is of course a debate of a one week matchup play. We all know however how detrimental it can be to chose the wrong bye week replacement player. I’m all about matchups and even though Holmes has Detroit I feel that Crayton has the better matchup against Houston. The Lions are 16th against the pass and HOU is 30th. Crayton and Holmes are both the #2 WR on each team. That is if you consider Naane a true #1. When you consider all things – QB, Pass D, and the players fantasy play it becomes OBVIOUS that Crayton is the better play. Post in the comments and help my writer realize the error of his ways…

    Fluckie is wrong AGAIN.. He told you to Pick up A Gonzolez. Reports are he is done for maybe the year. He told you to Pick Up Kitna ( 4 INTS) over Fitzpatrick. Come on Fluckie I expect better for week 9.

    Gonzo was a sneaky play sexy…. cant control injury

    as for Kitna/Fitzpatrick looks pretty even to me. In standard PPR leagues Kitna put up 14 points and Fitzpatrick had 17 points.

    Been meaning to comment on this site. I found it by accident before and tried to find it again.

    I took your “expert” advice and started Crayton over Holmes despite his great matchup. I lost a critical game because of your advice. I will never read your dumb site again. I should have clicked away when I realized you can’t write for shit.
