    So I’ve got a decision to make and I’d love to poll the RG community on the topic.

    A season long FFB Championship is on the line, $4K to the winner. My original starter, Luck, was injured several weeks back and I have been jockeying Cousins, Winston and Mariota based on matchups. Somehow it has worked out.

    The choice this week is between Cousins or Winston. Of course Cousins is coming off a monster game and at first glance, against the porous Eagles DEF you would think he is the play. But his Road vs Home splits are rather dramatic. Adding to the confusion is that this is a NFC East matchup with playoff consequences for both teams. I expect a tighter, more hard fought game.

    On the other side we have Winston – facing a CHI pass DEF that has in actuality been pretty good this season. However, they got torched by Teddy B. last week and the numbers indicate there has been regression for about a month. Furthermore, TB is at home and Winston passed the rock 50 times last week. Clearly, TB doesn’t want their rookie QB dropping back 50 times, but I see more of the opportunity for a back and forth “shoot-out” in this game than I do in the PHI vs WAS matchup.

    As of now I am “leaning” Winston and in most “rankings” these two are stacked pretty close to one another, with most experts leaning ever so slightly to Cousins….which I completely understand, but my gut tells me Winston.

    As we know, there is a game at 8PM tonight so I need to make a decision and I am really twisted over this. What say you all? Thank you in advance.

    I think TB could beat Chicago by just running the ball and playing defense, especially since Alshon Jeffry is supposed to be out. I would lean pretty strongly to Cousins for that reason, but you’re the one in the Championship. Good luck!

    Thanks dude…well, that is why I am asking! Because I truly am going back and forth on this one.

    That is a good point. But we do have Cutler on the other side who isn’t scared to take the rock and sling it, win, lose or draw.

    I forgot to mention the league rules BTW. QB passing TD’s are worth 6. Pass yards are the traditional 1 pt per 20 yds.

    I have a somewhat similar dilemma, i go with Cousins in this matchup, or roll the dice that Brees plays against a nice matchup at home against Jacksonville…

    Your dilemma on paper seems like a no brainer to go with Winston…However, if you look at his last 5 home games at what i think most would agree are not necessarily strong defenses….NO, ATL, DAL, NYG, JVille….he has a total of 3 passing TDs and 3 rushing TDs. not exactly good.

    So..I would go with Cousins based on that.

    Who’d you end up going with? Cousins has a hot start tonight
