    Kyle Orton or Drew Brees??

    Kylo Orton is killing and picking up on the fantasy rankings, and he's playing the 31st ranked secondary in the league ATL. Brees is playing against a tougher D against Oakland. Orton is on the road, brees is home in NO.

    whaddya say?

    I have the same problem


    Orton or Payton


    For you, I would go with Orton.

    Oak's D is ok.

    Atl's pass D is bottom of the league - 27 or something

    Orton for sure, for both of you! Peyton isn't doing much these days. Orton is playing like a freaking superstar (god that sounds so weird!). I have Orton also, and I'm wondering whether to start him. The fan in my is saying to keep the faith in Rivers though. I'm just going to keep Rivers in, Orton is only predicted to get one more point than Rivers anyways.

    i dont know though...Rivers hasnt been very productive against the NE "D". I think that the NE/SD game is going to be very physical and I have a feeling we will see our backup RB's running the ball like forrest gump...

    Id start Orton for sure over rivers this week if i were you...

    Ive made the call, and had a press conference already...Orton is in...Brees is sittin this week...

    I wouldnt start anyone but Brees!! Brees is almost guaranteed to throw for atleast 300 yards no matter who he is going against. And with Colston suiting up for N.O., and Shockey could be coming back as well I would put Brees on the field.

    I actually made that move last night. Looking at it objectively, I just had to put Orton in, especially with Atlanta's extremely weak secondary.

    Of course, with the luck I have this move will ensure that Rivers will have a 400 yard throwing day with possibly 7 TD passes.

    Win-win either way! :lol:

    The only problem I have with Orton is his inconsistency I mean with Brees you know what your are going to get.. Not to mention Forte will probably have a big game as well.

    This goes to show that we tend to over analyze football at times, especially matchups. Brees should start over Orton every week regardless of opponent.
