Felix would normally be my go-to for my flex position, but due to the fact that he will be running up against the Jets Defense, Im wondering if Buffalo's go-to reciever Steve Johnson would put up more fantasy points against the Chiefs....
This is my first year doing FF ... so what do you guys think?
I'd go wtih Felix. Early in the year, I think RB's are the way to go with Flex spots, as you just don't know how often Johnson is going to get the ball. You know Felix is getting around 15-20 touches, so he's the safer pick.
QB Romo & Cutler; RB: R Grant, R Mathews, F Jones, F Jackson. M Tolbert. & C Williams; WR/TE used as same: G Jennings, A Gates, M Austin, S Holmes, D Keller; Kicker: M Crosby. TD League-bonus-100 yds rushing, receiving, & 300 yard passing.
I'm not caught up with the Felix hype, but I can definitely see Romo doing more screen passes, and also allowing Felix to get a considerable amount of touches. I think the clear choice in this one is Felix Jones, without a doubt.
10 team H2H league, standard scoring [NFL.com] QB: A. Rogers RB: MJD, S. Jax, J. Starks, D. Murray, M. Bush WR: M. Wallace, B. Marshall, P. Harvin, M. Colston, L. Robinson TE: O. Daniels, J. Gresham DEF: Cowboys K: Sebastian Janikowski
I totally see everyones points for Felix; but I have had him too many times in the past seasons and gotten burnt b/c of his performance. I have major trust issues with him AND i am a cowboys fan; also, I had stevie johnson last year and lost my game sole b/c of that dropped endzone past; so I have history with both players; Jones has some risk as well; I could see a fumble coming from the jets d. Its the first week and I feel Johnson will do his thing and Jones is 40/60 - 40% chance hell be decent and 60 % chance hell get you 5 points. I say go with Johnson
