2 flex spots, 7 guys I'm thinking about starting. WHIR

Postby Jaymun » Tue Aug 30, 2011 4:19 pm

6 team league, rush/rec td = 6, rush/rec yd =1/10, rec=1

Right now I have Reggie Bush and Kenny Britt as the starters, but here is who I have to choose from:

Reggie Bush
Kenny Britt
Fred Jackson
Danny Amendola
Lance Moore
Tim Hightower
Percy Harvin

I LOVE amendola in PPR this year, but I don't think I'm going to risk using him week 1, I want to see what kind of targets he gets before I start relying on him. And I'm almost in the same boat with Reggie and Hightower, despite my starting Bush for now.

Drop a link and I'll try to help you out.

It would be easier with the matchups listed. A lot easier.

Because it's PPR, I think I'd go with Reggie Bush and Hightower. I think that Henne will be pressured a lot and do what he did last year: look short. R Bush could see several dump off passes thrown his way. Hightower could be in the same boat. Each may be limited in rushing yardage, but could get enough looks to make them worthwhile for you. If you don't like one of them, then I may lean towards Moore. The game against GB could be a shootout, although you never know who Brees will target the most.
DISCLAIMER: I've never played in a PPR league, so take that for what it's worth.

Reggie Bush vs NE
Tim Hightower vs NYG

Lance Moore @ GB
Kenny Britt @ JAC
Fred Jackson @ KC
Danny Amendola vs PHI
Percy Harvin @ SD

Help with mine?

I'm always a fan of starting RBs in the flex unless you have a stud WR, because they are guaranteed to get touches. That being said I vote Reggie Bush and Fred Jackson. Bush has had a nice preseason and I can't see how the Dolphins could trust Thomas with much as of now. Jackson might not get you as many catches, but he is still going to get his carries. Hightower, honestly, I'm just not a huge fan of him or his situation. I would wait and see how Shanny uses the RBC in Washington.
