WEEK 3 DILEMMAS: WIDE RECEIVER

WEEK 3 DILEMMA: WIDE RECEIVER Mario Manninham or Johnny Knox?

Hmmm?

Of the 2 defenses those WR's are facing, I would have to say Seattle has the best passing defense of them - not giving up a single receiving touchdown YTD not to mention they are 2nd in fewest passing yards allowed. So for me, that would give Mario Manningham the edge over Johnny Knox So far this season, Manningham is 4th among all receivers and Knox is 16th.

When you consider that a touchdown and 47 yards is all that separates that gap, it comes down to who has the better match-up since both are capable of big plays.

Although in my QB dilemma I opted for Eli Manning vs Carolina I also see the possibility of NY taking an early lead and running on Carolina for a majority of the game.

On the other hand, I think Seattle and Chicago will be a high scoring game with 35+ passing attempts by each team. I don't see Seattle being able to run the ball against Chicago. With that said, I do think Knox will get more opportunities for receptions and I feel pretty good about him finding the end zone at least once on Sunday.

So there it is,

Johnny Knox @ Seattle


or


Mario Manningham @ Tampa Bay



My pick would be Knox vs Seattle in this DILEMMA. What say all of you?

WEEK 3 DILEMMAS: WIDE RECEIVER

I would go Manningham and only for one reason and that is he has had two solid weeks to start the year off and Knox is still a rookie.  Just be patient cause Knox could be what chicago was looking for.
