I sat miles austin yesterday, thinking i'd start snelling at my flex, but now i'm hearing snelling gonna be out...so what do i do?
should i start Brent Celek, cedric benson, or jason snelling at my flex, looks like i might have to start te, or should i start one of the backs and just hope for anuff carries....the wire is closed till after this week, so i'm stuck with one of these guys at flex.
Standard scoring: 1 point for every 10 yards rush/rec, and 6 points per td.
My roster: QB Drew Brees WR Marques Colston WR Wes Welker RB Frank Gore RB Ryan Grant TE Jermichael Finley W/R/T Jason Snelling BN Brent Celek BN Miles Austin BN Cedric Benson BN Brett Favre K Lawrence Tynes DEF Cincinnati BN New York

Toughy man, i also sat miles like a dummy. And i also have snelling in 2 lgs i planned to use him in. This turner bs is a real wrench in my spokes in 2 lgs i really needa win for any shot at making playoffs (been a crap year). I would have to say you should just wait it out til sunday, try to keep up on injury reports as much as possible. You know how NFL teams like to screw around. For example....yest morning stafford was "doubtful" @ 9am. I was going to game, and buddy and I stopped at a bar by stadium cuz we were a tad early (around 11:45am)...and it said he was playing! i was like wtf??? Calvin too. Not that either mattered.
Point is, Turner has played injured before. I personally see no benefit to him or atl by him playing against TB. I'm sure its a start snelling/ the team could easily handle, why risk him when you're gonna need em in much tougher matchups, and possibly beyond. Like guy said up there if he does play he may be limited. But then you gotta worry bout norwood too. If turner AND norwood are active, it could be a pretty mediocre @ best day for snelling. This goes for benson too. If he plays he would probably be limited and share some time with scott and maybe even larry. Keep up on injury reports up til kickoff see if anyones ruled OUT, or any real evidence of a timeshare is shown. If Turner and norwood are active AND benson is active, I would almost have to go with benson. I also have benson in the 1 lg and this may be what i will do as well. Gut feelin @ that point.
Far as celek goes, id chance it on benson or snelling b4 startin him. He has redskins this week who have been very good obv against the pass, but also very good against TEs. And i believe last time he played em he didnt do squat.
Snelling for sure... and Turner isn't necessarily the one you're worried about. Reportedly Norwood is ahead of Turner as far as playing this weekend. He will still get touches even if both play, and that's more than you can say for Celek. No way do you start him. If Benson starts, then definitely start him. He's a game time decision, but right now, Snelling is the play unless something changes for Benson and he miraculously plays and starts for Cinci...
Way they made bensons hip sound @ first....it didnt seem all that serious, later on it was called a "strain"...so i dunno, if he goes id venture to guess its cuz he can, and not cuz he thinks he can, and he will start. Like i said up there, you never really know whats going on for sure.
Based on what we know today, I'd start Snelling at flex. Based on what we might know 20 minutes before kickoff Sunday? If Benson plays, he's a must start. If he doesn't, Snelling is still your guy even if Turner does play. Good luck!
