I do agree that he's a solid flex player ... Im just worried about him getting shut out by the Jets D. Steve Johnson is not only the Bills #1 reciever, but he did great against KC last year! ... I just dont know ... I think its going to be a last minute decision. I have Felix in that spot as of right now.

My Starters:

QB: Jay Cutler
RB: L. McCoy
RB: R. Mendenhall
FLEX: ? ? ?
WR: Santonio Holmes
WR: Dez Bryant
TE: Vernon Davis
D/ST: Eagles
K: N. Keading

I also have Meachem on my bench, but he's playing tonight, dont think I have the cojones to put him in right now! lol

Definitely have to go with Felix Jones here. Stevie Johnson doesn't have Lee Evans to draw the double teams this year.

Felix should have a solid game, roll with him.

Another vote for Johnson. He was a very good find last year and with Felix facing a tough Jets D I think Johnson is worth more than Jones for this week!

yeah, I'd roll with Felix Jones. Odds are you drafted him first, and you have to roll with your studs.

That is a good point, yes I did draft him before Stevie! And I agree that Felix is the better player, Its just the matchups that are worrying me! lol

I agree with alot of what has been said. The Jets D is nasty and Romo isnt going to be able to throw down the field that easy with the jets lock down corners. They also bring alot of pressure on the QB so i can see Romo throwing screens to felix and hitting him in the flats for quick plays.

Steve on the other hand, KC's defense isnt that bad. Could he have a big game, yes. Do i trust him to, NO! I have him on one of my teams and hes my biggest concern on my team at the WR3 spot.

Go with the proven. We know the Jets arent gonna let Romo throw for big yards so Felix is my pick.
