Who to play in my flex WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Thu Sep 08, 2011 8:59 am

Starting Roster:
QB - Matt Ryan
WR - Roddy White
WR - Mike Williams (TB)
WR - Greg Jennings
RB - DeAngelo Williams
RB - LeGarrette Blount
TE - Jason Witten
WR/RB/TE -

Bench:
Knowshon Moreno
(Den - RB)
Johnny Knox
(Chi - WR)
Daniel Thomas
(Mia - RB)
Stevie Johnson
(Buf - WR)
Marshawn Lynch
(Sea - RB)
Miles Austin
(Dal - WR)


Who should I play in my flex? Miles Austin, Knowshon, or Stevie Johnson? Assuming I should start Mike Williams (TB) at WR. We get .5 point PPR.

Thanks for the help with mine. I would have to say go with Knowshon. I usually prefer a RB at the flex as they are likely to get more touched. Austin is still questionable this week as he plays a tough D and is not 100%. Stevie Johnson is not a bad option either, but I think I would stick with Knowshon.

I'd go Knowshon against Oakland. Fox is giong to try and run the ball a lot there. I'd keep Williams (TB) in your lineup as well.

Please help with mine:

My only concern with Knowshon is the "MCGahee factor" just vulturing touchdowns away...but I still say thats your best option!!

Good luck.

Can you look at mine?

Although M. Austin is quite attractive for Week 1, I would honestly go with Moreno for Flex this week! Be wary that Moreno will most likely lose GOAL-LINE touches, which rack up a significant amount of fantasy points for most leagues.

Definitely Moreno. Safest to put a RB in flex.

Knowshon Moreno. I believe new head coach John Fox when he says he wants to run the ball more. The matchup is favorable, and he should get a decent workload. The lack of goal line work will keep him from putting up RB1 numbers on a week to week basis, but in .5 PPR he's a solid RB2/Flex play.
