Lost Kenny Britt, Need a flex start

Postby rstandi » Sat Oct 01, 2011 12:07 pm

First, let me say I have Drew Brees. I lost Britt last week and need a flex starter. My choices on the bench are Robert Meachem, Devery Henderson, Dustin Keller, Willis Magahee, and Torry Smith. Am I best to start one of the Saints and hope for the Double up TD's with Brees?

I would say start one of the saints, not to double up on TD's but because they're your best options. Maybe Torry Smith, but I think I'd want to see him produce in more then one week before I'd throw him in the lineup. Keller might be a sneaky play as it seems that Sanchez is finding him more and more, but I don't like his matchup at all. McGahee I dont like as he's going against GB, and Moreno might get some more looks this week as he's been practicing.

Out of the two Saints, I think Meachem is probably safer, but Henderson is a big play threat.

Help with mine?

Tough call. Don't like McGahee because Denver can't seem to run otherwise I'd go with him. Don't like Henderson or Meacham because of all the mouths to feed with Colston back in the mix... Don't like T. Smith's matchup and Keller is a Tight end... Don't really like the choices so if I had to pick one -
I think Keller is the safest bet of these three oddly enough so play him for guaranteed 5-8 points
... BUT...
If it were me I'd go for the upside and actually would play T. Smith. I think Smith is the fun play this week. That's all I can say here.

Agree with prophecy...Saint receivers are your best options, regardless of double-up benefits. Problem is, which one given Colston's return?
