It's a standard 10-team H2H league (1qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1rb/wr, 1te, 1k, 1dst)
Need help deciding which RB to start at my "flex" position. (I already have Forte and Hightower starting at the RB positions).
I have Slaton and I have the combo of Westbrook and McCoy. All my bench wr's are either hurt or have a bye, so I need to use one of these three rb's at the flex.
Westbrook: it looks like he has recovered enough from the concussion to play Sunday, but we don't know if he is 100% yet and we don't know how much playing time he will actually get.
McCoy: With Westbrook back his value clearly drops, but it sound like he might still get a sizeable role this week even with Westbrook in there. This helps McCoy's value a bit while simultaneously hurting Westbrook's.
Slaton: He's the real wild card. After getting benched last week for fumbling on his 1st carry, there is just no way to know how much...if any..playing time he is going to get. Especially since Moats filled in and kicked butt last week. My biggest fear is that Slaton will play, but that Moats will come in as a vulture back at the goal line and steal all the TD's.
So, who do you think is the safest bet out of these three? I have a feeling that one of these guys will have a good week and the other two will stink...I just cant figure out which guy will step up. Please help!!!
Of course, WHIR!
By the way, this decision is all the more painful knowing that 2 weeks ago I lost the game because Westbrook was injured after his first run....and last week I lost my game because Slaton was benched after his first carry...and of course I could have won both those games if I just decided to play the ever-reliable (though rarely spectacular) Hightower.
