Help at WR/Flex, WHIR!

Postby joegoody41 » Wed Sep 07, 2011 12:05 pm

I've got Chris Johnson and McCoy at RB, and Bowe and Wayne at WR.

There's also a RB/WR flex position, and I'm trying to decide between the following:

Best @ TB
Marshall vs. NE
Tobert vs. MIN
S.Moss vs. NYG
Lynch @ SF
Jacobs @ WAS

I'm leaning towards Best, because Marshall has a somewhat shaky QB situation (though so does Wayne). Tolbert has a decent chance of scoring a TD as the goal-line back in the SD offense. Lynch and Jacobs are not really options at this point. I could also sit Wayne in favor of Marshall, and go with Best at the flex. Still trying to decide, so any advice folks can give is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Leave a link, and I'll help you out.

I'll go with door number 3 ...

Sit Wayne - no Manning, and Kerry Collins with 2 weeks of Practice :-t
Insert Marshall - Henne is looking to prove to people he can do it ;-D
Run with the BEST of them - I think it's a good idea to use Best early, before injury hits him again!

i agree with the wayne/marshall choice... the Texans must be chomping at the bit to get on top of Collins. They are going to want to get a great start to the season against their big divisional rivals so I think they will go all out to get the advantage.

I had Best last year and was highly disappointed in his performance... obviously.

But this year the Lions are a different team and Best has some pressure taken off him so perhaps this will be his breakout..... go for it.

thanks for helping on mine :)

Thanks for helping me!

I have been saying all day to people go with Best! I think he is big as long as he is healthy. Look at how he started last year. 15.6/41.2 fantasy points against Chicago and Philly. When he isn't hurt he is going to be great!

I'd sit Wayne for Marshall, both shaky QB but Marshall/Henne have had more than 1 week together like Wayne/Collins have. Marshall is also much better Physically at this point.

I'd go Best, he should be nice n fresh so use him while ya can.

Best is the option for sure.

As for Marshall/ be leaning towards Marshall as well. Dont know if its PPR, but if it is, makes it a no brainer for me this week. NON PPR you could get away with starting Wayne potentially. He did post nice numbers week 3 preseason with Painter at the helm...and Im thinking Indy will be playing from behind here...Collins is a deep ball thrower.
