Flex: Wells/Hightower/FJones/Harvin WHIR!

Postby RedBirdChica » Sat Sep 10, 2011 1:31 pm

Right now, I have Beanie and Hightower as a complete tossup. Carolina may be one of the former Buckeye's best matchups. That being said, I know how powerful Timmy Time can be ... and with a banged up Cassel, there may be even more quick screens and running plays.

Felix Jones may see a larger workload this week because of the Jets secondary? The Cowboys make me nervous and this matchup is rough - but everyone keeps sayin I'm crazy for not starting him.

What a tough decision.

Harvin has a decent line for this week, too. And should maybe even be my WR 2 over Dez. I anticipate Revis to spot himself on Miles Austin ... but he could easily flop back and forth.

WHIR, as always.

Well Hightower has had a good preseason, but I would have to go Wells considering his matchup.

I wouldnt shy away from Felix even though its a tough matchup.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

Jones is the safest option because he is on the best team. However, I do think Hightower will have a good game against the banged up Giants. What I like to do in these situations is to play the guy that is on Monday Night Football or Sunday Night Football. It makes the game way more interesting and there is nothing more thrilling to see your team down by 20 points and have your team pull off the epic comeback.

Wells is getting hyped up alot this week as the number 1 back. I would go Wells or Felix.

Who is hyping Wells as the number 1 back this week? Most are saying Jamaal Charles is this week's number 1 back. I think Wells is too risky of a play this week to start him.

Sorry not hyping as number 1 back overall, but main number 1 back in arizona. He is gonna be the only one touching the ball. Yahoo has him ranked 9th this week.

Looks like there's still quite a division. Surprised that it's mainly between Wells and FJones ... no Hightower love.

I am nervous about Felix this week too, and I wouldn't start B. Wells no matter what the matchup. I like Hightower this week, and moving forward. I would play him.
