Week 1 Help: FLEX *WHIR*

Postby Soopaman Luva » Thu Sep 08, 2011 9:36 am

10 team H2H league, standard scoring [NFL.com]

Starters:

QB: A. Rogers
RB: MJD, S. Jax
WR: M. Wallace, B. Marshall
TE: O. Daniels
DEF: Eagles
K: N. Kaeding

Pick 1 Flex:

J. Addai (RB)
M. Ingram (RB)
M. Bush (RB)
J. Starks (RB)
P. Harvin (WR)
J. Ford (WR)
S. Rice (WR)

Worth starting B. Marshall over P. Harvin at WR2?! My flex is currently set to J. Addai, but that would mean I would sit P. Harvin for Week 1! Help me out! *WHIR*

I think at WR you keep Mike Wallace and Brandon Marshall. In your flex, I'm leaning towards Mark Ingram. His role in the Saints offense won't be huge right away but he still has a chance to pound the ball in the end zone. I actually think Peyton Manning being out will hurt Addai more than it will help. Addai may get more carries, but the defenses will be able to key in on Addai more easily with Kerry Collins under center.

I like Mark Ingram as your Flex.

no ppr, so touchdowns are key.... I like his chances of finding pay dirt.

I as well am also thinking to go with Harvin ... the saints have a lot of depth but they're also very explosive!

Addai is going to get targeted like someone else said, I dont believe he will do well this week at all ... not only because of the lack of Manning, but also because Houston's Defense has greatly improved, especially their front 7!

Best of luck!

Help a brotha out ...

So it seems that its split between starting Harvin or Ingram? :-o I've picked Addai for these past years now, and I really think he may be able to prove that he's still got something (especially since Manning is out). Harvin/Ingram are more favorable this week though, I just don't know which one yet. Although Ingram shares touches, even if he nets a touchdown, I may get more value in him than the rest. Looking for more help!

Yeah thats a tough one. its either Ingram or Harvin. Ingram can get you maybe 50yds and a td which is not bad but the upside of harvin is 100+ with a td. The safer bet is always the rb so if you feel confident in the rest of your starters producing then roll the dice with harvin. If you're not entirely sold on your lineup, plug in ingram.

I really Like Harvin but with a new QB I dont know about him first week Im starting to think Ingram will see a touchdown so I would lean that way in non ppr TDs are worth 60 yards

You've got to go with Ingram here. Always go RB over WR in the FLEX. Please help with mine.
