Week 5 Flex (WR/RB) Position help needed please

Postby efcmark » Thu Oct 06, 2011 9:34 am

With a team being decimated by injuries and byes I'm having to start Steve Smith (Car) and Jacoby Jones as WRs, with Frank Gore and Fred Jackson as RBs.

This leaves me a choice of Marshawn Lynch, Stevan Ridley and LaDanian Tomlinson for the flex position. I'm thinking Tomlinson, but any thoughts would be welcomed please!

Well if Ryan is not talking out his backend like usual and actually sticks by his words and goes back to a "Ground and Pound" game style like they played in Sanchez' rookie year then I like Tomlinson a bit more ...
BUUUUT knowing how he likes to talk a lotta poo ...

I like Ridley's upside

Ridley = High Risk/High Reward
Tomlinson = Steady but Low production

little help

I benched Ridley last week, which hurt, but like you said, Tomlinson is more safe, and considering there are injury concerns to Gore and Jones already I'm inclined to play it a bit more safe.

I know to the US/NFL/Fantasy Football so still learning the ropes - so any insight is appreciated. I would offer to help in return, but honestly, I'm clueless!
