12 team PPR league

Only have one flex, who should I stater? I have Knox in for now.....

Knox (WR)
Lynch (RB)
J. Stewart (RB)
J. Simpson (WR)

WR's averaged the most FFB points aginast the Falcon last year, which is why I put Konx in the flex spot. Would love to hear everyones thoughts and ideas.

I'm leaning towards Stewart. I'm more of RB guy than a WR guy at flex, and while CAR scares me (I steered clear of Williams and Stewart this year) he's gets the ball and they're not gonna be able to rely on Cam. Knox is inconsistent (good upside, but unreliable), Lynch I like but Stewart is a proven performer.

Good luck! ;-D I could use a thought or two...

Yes, Stewart isn't Williams. But, they'll have to run and run and run to protect Cam, and they are built to run and have a proven record of running. Stewart will get enough work to make him worth playing, at least for the first few weeks IMO. I don't trust Lynch or SEA's o-line yet, I have him stashed on a couple of benches this year but nowhere near starting him until I see what happens the first couple games. I don't want anything to do with CIN yet either, I expect there will be some fantasy goodness from the Cincy WRs this week, but it's gonna be ugly with Dalton back there. And I like Bennet better than Knox in CHI right now. Knox just disappears a lot. Stewart is the one of that group I'm confident will touch the ball enough times to matter, CAR has an improved o-line, and a shaky, unproven, young QB with a solid, proven, reliable, healthy run game = yay; plus ARI is decent against the run but not great. I'm not saying Stewart is a stud, that's why I have him on zero out of 9 teams this year. I just think he's safest option out of those choices. Good luck! ;-D

I used to be dead set against starting "backup" RBs in RBBC teams...that was until last year and I had Jamaal Charles carry my team.

I agree, give Stewart the start this week.

Check out mine...

Thanks for the explanation monkiesatemybaby, you persuaded me. Im not as knowledgeable as u, but if you need help ask....lol.

Also do you think Devery Henderson would be a good pick off the waivers?

Here is my team.

QB: Romo, Cutler
WR: Jennings, Williams (TB), Knox, S. Rice, Meachem, Simpson
RB: J. Charles, Forte, Lynch, J. Stewart
TE: Olsen
D: S.D.
K: Folk

Again, thanks a million monkiesatemybaby, must appreciated.

With Meachem on your team, I think you can pass on Henderson for now...unless you want to drop Simpson.

I'd go Stewart here as well this week altho it isn't nearly as clear cut for me.

I agree. Henderson OR Meachem. For future reference, you'll get better replies to that 2nd question if you start a new topic in the correct forum. And I'm certainly no expert but you're welcome, this is a pretty helpful place! ;-D
