Week 5 RB help in the flex WHIR

Postby WhiskeyHotel » Tue Oct 04, 2011 10:45 pm

I currently have Tomlinson (vs NE) in the flex and I'm thinking about putting Hunter (vs TB) instead.
OR...
Should I trade Tomlinson for Redman (vs TEN) or Ridley (vs NYJ) and start HIM in the flex? Thanks!

man, this is a tough one ... I have some similar players as well. I actually went out and picked up Redman, but thats primarily because I am a Mendinhall owner, and I think Redman will do much better than Mendy anyways!
But I also have a feeling that LT could have a really good game against the Patriots!

Do you have anyone else you on your roster that you dont need that you can drop for Redman? I think Redman is your safer play here, he is going to be the only back in that game, so he is guaranteed a bunch of touches! and the steelers just re-signed Starks (tackle) to improve their O-Line ... But I also think that LT is playable this week.

Maybe post up the rest of your squad and who else your starting.


Best of Luck!

Thanks for the help, much appreciated! I was thinking the same thing about Redmen/Mendenhall, but didn't know if i should pull the trigger. All I know is that I'm 0-4 and I'm willing to make just about any reasonable change there could be. Here's my roster:

QB - Kevin Kolb (vs MIN) (I like the match up he has)
WR - Larry Fitzgerald (vs MIN)
WR - Victor Cruz (vs SEA)
WR - Jacoby Jones (vs OAK)
RB - Chris Johnson (vs PIT)
RB - Joseph Addai (vs KC)
TE - Greg Olsen (vs NO)
W/R/T - Kendall Hunter (vs TB)
BN - LT (vs NE)
BN - Ryan Torain (Bye)
BN - Denarius Moore (vs HOU)
BN - Nate Washington (vs PIT)
BN - Rex Grossman (Bye)
BN - Tony Tomo (Bye)

After this week, I plan on dropping Grossman and Kolb since Romo will be done with his Bye. Thanks again for the help!
