week 1 flex help

Postby deathjester25 » Mon Sep 05, 2011 12:08 pm

Hi guys im just looking for a little help with what to do in the flex spot week. Flex can be wr,rb,qb or te. Scoring is 6 for td across the board .25 carry 1 ppr plus yards and bonus for yards.
Im thinking of running Beanie Wells as flex since he has a good matchup and im not sure if Maclin is in game shape yet.

QB Big Ben
RB Ray Rice
RB Mojo
WR Larry Fitz
WR Mike Wallace
TE Brandon Pettigrew
K John Casay
D eagles

Bench
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
RB Beanie Wells, BenJarvis Green-Ellis,CJ Spiller, Ricky williams
WR Jeremy Maclin, Anquan Boldin
TE Jared Cook

Heck, if all TDs count as 6 points and you can start a QB at your flex position, I think I would roll with Fitzpatrick. My second choice would be Wells. Good luck! Thoughts on mine please:

If you can use a 2nd QB in your flex, I would almost always go with that option. No player is guarenteed to get the ball every down except the QB. Even with PPR, I would explect Fitz to get a smidge more pts total than your other options. If you do want to use Wells thou, he has a good matchup.
Thank God for Football Season.

Running 2 qbs just worries me. 2 INTs and fitzpatrick is looking at negative points for the week. TDs are worth 6 but INTs -3 fumbles -2 and its 1pt=30 yards. I will give it some more thought though
