Mess @Flex, WHIR!

Postby lugmetric » Tue Sep 06, 2011 11:24 am

Alright, so plenty of mediocre flex options, 0.5 PPR. 3 pt bonus @110+ yards.

B. Jacobs @WAS-not the best run D, has looked really good these last few games, goal line TDs. (leaning towards him)
A. Collie @HOU-secondary can't be THAT much better-kerry collins will be looking for safe throws/underneath routes/etc (injury concerns me a bit)
R. Meachem @GB-moore w/ groin injury-brees will be slingin, if meachem starts i think he could be in line for some serious work. (boom/bust pick?)

Let me know your thoughts, as always, will help in return.

I would lean to Jacobs as well, with all things being pretty equal I always go RB at flex.

I too like to use a RB @ flex, albeit a starting RB. In Jacobs case though, I think he is the safest play. He should get a decent amount of carries especially if the Giants get a good lead. Plus, he is the goalline back and should find the endzone.

I hear Collie is questionable to play because of a lingering foot injury:

Who knows with Meachem, I'm wondering the same thing about him. I think I'd start Jacobs because he is guaranteed to get you some points.

Help?

Use your flex for an extra RB unless your WR has a crazy good matchup. A second rate RB will out perform a second rate WR every week. Go with Jacobs.
Thank God for Football Season.
