Adding a player slot to the SL

Postby Kareighuis » Wed Jul 06, 2011 10:51 am

As agreed to in this poll, we're adding a player slot to the Starting Lineup. Need to determine what type. Everyone's who's mentioned to date has preferred flexes of some sort, so didn't put any that weren't. Would you like that changed? Please say so.

Related poll- When should we start this?

What if I wanted a RB/TE flex?

jk.


No reasonnot to go R/W/T inmy opinion, especially since we have a year to prep for it.

Voted all 3, why not? I think it adds some spice, and lets teams who are strong in different areas work out different options. Besides if injuries hit, amongst bye weeks, starting two TE's, or 4 WR's could come in handy.

We have a winner. It's not what I wanted, but a R/W/T flex gets added starting 2012 season.

Why did you want just a W/T slot? We already start 4 total W/T to 2 RB and we have PPR lol

Because I think RBs aren't as important in the NFL as they once and so there's just a bunch of decent guys with limitations either in future potential (FJax, Tolbert) or near-term production (Spiller). Having the potential to start 3 RBs will tilt positional value too much to RBs, given the NFL's direction. WRs and move TEs (Hernandez) are where the higher-quality production will be, and even swiss-knife TEs like Pettigrew will have value- these facts will be overwhelmed by the perceived value of young pass-catching backs (this is a PPR) with significant limitations like Felix Jones.

If that's true won't most people just end up starting a WR or TE anyway? I just like that it gives a team options in case of injuries or bye weeks. I don't think anyone would want to start 3 RB's over a more productive WR or TE. I just think it helps the teams who are deep at RB and WR also, and doesn't change up too much how someone wants to draft.
