Need Major Flex Help (BJGE, Hightower, Marshall, Wayne)

Postby deputy » Sat Sep 10, 2011 9:09 am

So, here is my tentative lineup thus far:

QB: Tony Romo (@ NYJ)
WR: Brandon Lloyd (vs. Oak)
WR: Mike Williams-TB (vs. Det)
RB: Ahmad Bradshaw (@ Was)
RB: LeGarrette Blount (vs. Det)
WR/RB/TE: ???
WR/RB/TE: ???


Here are my choices:
- Brandon Marshall (vs. NE)
- Reggie Wayne (@ Det)
- Tim Hightower (vs. NYG)
- BenJarvus Green-Ellis (@ MIA)
- Derrick Ward (vs. IND)


This is a .5 PPR league with 10 yards rec/rush = 1 Point and All TDs = 6 Points.

If you feel any of these guys should be in over my slated starters, please let me know that as well.

Thanks!

Hightower will get touches vs a beat up/broken NYG D and NE will be milking thier lead and running with BJGE. Those are my two starters.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

QB: Rivers
RB: Murray, Matthews, R.Bush, D. Brown
WR: Julio Jones, Colston, VJax, Garcon

I like this one, I go Wayne and Hightower. Even without Manning, Wayne is still the #1 WR there and they will be playing catchup against the Texans all day.

Hightower and Wayne is a good choice, for the reasons people stated above. But I do think Houston will 'try' to shut him down with J. Joseph, who's a lot better than people take him for, and I dunno if with Collins you can still consider Wayne a WR1.
Brandon Marshall on the other had has been impressive in the preseason and will be looking to bounce back after last year's disappointment. Plus Chad Henne throws to him A LOT.

Seems like it's a Wayne vs. Marshall question.

I will say Wayne and BGE. BGE was very good against the fish last year (75+ yards a game and a td in each game).

Wayne is a must start no matter what. I'd go him and BJGE. Thanks for the help on mine.

I would go with Marshall and Wayne. Both teams will be playing from behind all game, and Henne and Marshall have a good connection going already. Wayne is proven for being able to catch the ball, even if they put J. Joseph on him all game, Wayne is known for comeback routes. I am not sold on Hightower taking the bulk of the carries in Shanahan's system. He usually mixes things up, and with Torrain in that backfield, who proved himself worthy last year, i think they go more RBBC early this season to see who develops in that system.
