Need help...what position is better to add: rb/wr or wr/te

Postby kimmer » Sat May 09, 2009 8:36 am

We are going to add a flex player to the starting line-up. My question is.
Which combination is better to add to the starting line-up.
RB/WR OR WR/TE - AS A FLEX POSITION.

We now start: QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DE
My thinking is if someone has a 3 great RB they are going to have an advantage.

Is this for a PPR or non-PPR League?

It's a non-PPR league.

In all the leagues that I am in with a flex, it is usually RB/WR/TE

The larger the league, the more depth you'll need from FA's so RB/WR gives you more options. Smaller leagues it matters less and WR/TE works about the same.

Adding a flex spot is tough as it does give a decided advantage to those with 3 starting RB's. INcluding a TE as an option is fairly irrelevant as a TE will only be started when they have to.

I would make it inclusive to all 3 positions and draft lots of RB's.

I'm assuming you can't have a flex player that is RB/WR/TE.

In a non-PPR, it doesn't really matter IMO as to whether or not someone could get an advantage by having 3 stud RBs (I'm not sure that I agree with that anyway, but let's go with it). If everyone goes into the draft knowing the rules and they draft with a plan, then everyone is on equal ground. Everyone plays by the same waiver wire rules.

Injuries are going to be a huge factor, especially in the RB position. Almost no one will have the same flex player at the beginning at the season that they will have at the end of the season.

Personally, I would go RB/WR since trying to put 2 usable TEs on a team is more difficult and that might deplete the TE availability on the waiver wire for those that need one due to injuries or bye weeks. Especially if this is a 12-team league.
