Newbie RB/WR/Flex help (yes really, all 3)

Postby efcmark » Sat Oct 08, 2011 10:07 am

I am new & playing our league winner for the past 2 seasons. Injuries or byes are robbing me of: Romo, Andre Johnson, Gates & Boldin this week.

This leaves me with Gore, Fred Jackson, Steve Smith (Car) & Jacoby Jones who should all start?

And if so, that leaves one from 3 for my Flex position:

Tomlinson vs Lynch vs Ridley

Any ideas?

For future reference more people will usually respond if u if you post who each person is playing against each week so they don't have to look it up and also if its PPR or not. For the flex you have to start either Ridley or LT. If your league is PPR then LT might be the better option but its close between both of them.

I'm not sure how many guys start at each position...

Not sure how many you start at each position... I think I'd start LT over Ridley this week, simply because I don't trust any Bellichek RB when they first show up. LT will get looks and touches and NE has a very suspect D. Is Redman still available? Please post how many you start and your format (i.e standard, ppr etc) and I'll try again... :-)

Good luck! ;-D

Can I get a couple thoughts on mine? 8-o

Hi guys,

Thanks for reply. I asked some guys in my league and they are saying we are a PPR league but only with 1point? Some guys said it was a "half PPR" league?

I have to start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, and a RB or WR.

I am next to no knowledge of Fantasy Football, or indeed the NFL, but would at least like to make my game close to try and earn some respect.

Redman is not available, and judging by how many regular starters I have missing, I think the flex needs to be someone who more than likely going to start/see some touches, than maybe someone who people think have "upside"?

PPR means point per reception and its usually a point or .5 per reception. For some help check out rankings at fantasy football websites such as rotoworld, kffl, and bleacher report. They post articles and rankings each week. Next time you post your lineups just post them like this cause its easier to view.

OK So you have no choice but to start Smith and Jones... Also Gore and Jackson start, so no issue there. Out of the remaining 3, I'd go with Tomlinson. I hate sanchez, but the ball will be in the air alot and LT will be there.

Thanks, I seem to be leaning towards LT too, even though I know the guy whom I'm playing is a NYer so a Pats player contributing anything would kill him!
