Time to bench Fowler?

Postby Defender » Wed Dec 06, 2017 12:02 pm

I started Fowler every week so far, and the sporadic big games has thus far made up for the handful of goose eggs(big play league). But as I look at the trend in his performance and consider the start of the post-season, I find my self wondering if I shouldn’t ride a hotter hand? My biggest fear is that the week I bench him he will but up 30 or 40 pts.

What are the thoughts of my fellow Fowler owners?
The standard is the standard.

He's never someone to be relying on. But without knowing your roster and the starting requirements, it's impossible to say you should or shouldn't be starting him.

With Addison and Ansah along with him in a big play league I have been back and forth with him so far, sometimes hitting big and sometimes missing, but am not planning on starting him this week. I would not say he is a much worse start than at any point though going into the game or really a better one. He could just as easily make a couple big plays or do nothing at all, basically no tackle floor like you would expect from someone playing more snaps
