Flex spot. J. Ford or R. Bush??? WHIR

Postby lefman66 » Thu Sep 08, 2011 4:46 pm

So I can't decide to play as flex Bush or Ford. I don't see Bush running up middle on Wilfork and Hanyseworth. And you know The pats will push the outside for contain. My only concern is lack or catches for Ford.

Please help. WHIR if I can.

I would go with Bush. D.Thomas is nursing a hammy, so Bush will get plenty of work without anyone to timeshare with. He will also get a lot of dumpoff passes to get him out of the middle.

I understand that RB is the way to go esp a starter. I am just concerned about the pats def. But I guess its safer with a starting RB, than an ok WR with a so so Qb.

I'm not sure if your is PPR or not but I like Bush as well because he doesn't have to just run up the middle he has the quickness to get outside as well as catch balls out of the backfield. Daniel Thomas may take a few carries away from him, but i dont see it as a big deal. Ford could turn out great, but i wouldn't start him week one.

go with Bush,there both " big play" players, but Bush will at least get a good # of touches, Ford may not, especially considering hes coming off of a broken hand.

help me out with my wideouts:
