My choices for the flex spot are as follows: T. Jones M. Lynch B. Obomanu LT S. Smith (Car) R. Moss S. Breaston
I honestly have no idea who to start. I'm leaning towards Jones, but I'm having second thoughts. Maybe I go with Lynch vs an average ATL def or Obomanu with the possibility of a blow out and SEA having to pass. Or Smith vs a bad 'Zona D. I know this is just a flex spot, but it is the playoffs and the guy I'm playing is the total points leader. I need every point I can get.
Thanks in advance for your help and I WILL help in return.
Do NOT start Lynch. Atl isn't an average defense. They happen to be the 4th ranked defense vs fantasy RBs. The SEA offense is garbage, and Lynch is matchup immune . . . he has a hard time breaking 50 yards regardless of how terrible the opposing team's run defense is.
IF Cassel plays I think you start TJ and hope Cassel can keep the defense honest. If Croyle is in, run for the hills and start Obamanu.
Williams will likely draw the toughest defenders, and fortunately for you WRs aren't penalized for INTs. SEA will definitely be throwing because I think they will definitely be behind.
This is a tough one. Id have to say roll with Jones though. Best chance to score a td and gain decent yards. Definitely do not start Lynch. ATL run def is actually pretty good and I just dont trust Lynch.
Go with Jones, whatever you do stay away from Lynch. Seattle will fall behind early and abandon the run, not to mention Atlanta has a very good and underrated run defense. You may want to consider starting Steve Smith. He's definitely a sleeper guy on your bench. Arizona has one of the worst defenses in the league, Carolina is playing at home, and you know Carolina will be able to run which will open up the passing game. I'm just not sure how much of a risk you want to take. I don't think Jones' ceiling is very high, whereas Smith is a high risk/high reward type guy. But if you want to play it safe, go with Thomas Jones, but if you want to hit a home run and go with a sleeper guy, play Steve Smith.
Here's another vote for Jones. Worst case scenerio, he's got the best chance of all those guys of getting in the endzone. Best case scenerio, he splits touches equaly with Jamal and sees 80-100 yards plus a TD
Thanks for the help on mine. I know Jones seems like the no-brainer at first, but I stay away. He's been terrible lately, and the uncertainty on Cassel doesn't help. I also think KC has been saving Charles all year, and here's where they start to "unleash" him, so to speak, at TJ's expense. Of all people I say Obamanu. Hasselback has actually not been that bad, other than the INT's. I don't really like any of them, but I think Obamanu is the guy.
