Flex pain with Bye Week. Help? Gibson or Meachem? WHIR

Postby David592207 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 12:27 pm

H2H Non-PPR 1RB/2WR+Flex 14 Team League

QB- Romo,Stafford
RB- Hillis,Bradshaw,BJGE,Hunter,Hardesty
WR- White,Austin,Meachem,Gibson
TE- Daniels,Pettigrew
D/ST- Lions
K- Brown,Hanson

Starting: Romo, Hardesty, White, Austin, (Flex), Daniels, Hanson

Should I start Meachem vs. IND or Gibson @ DAL? Honestly, I'm not expecting much out of either one, but one of them has to have more "upside" than the other and I can't decide. Saints should be passing the ball all over the place against Indy. But it's a crap-shoot which WR will score a TD, especially with TE Graham's emergence as a Brees fave. Then with Lloyd's arrival at STL, he may take targets away from Gibson. Or he may stretch the field and draw double-teams, opening it up underneath for Gibson. No clue...

In situations like these I like to go with the consistent guy. Brandon Gibson has been the Rams most consistent WR and I think StL is going to have to throw alot to keep up with Dallas. The Rams have lacked a WR to stretch the field and open things up so I think it should help Gibson.

Thanks for helping me out.

I have Gibson and hes been disappointing. Looks like 5 recpetions for 50 yards is his usual line. That's 5 points. And Bradford Ive been reading some reports that Bradford can sit this week.

Meachem can score a short TD and outscore Gibson. Id go with Meachem.

Based off of past games and this weeks match ups i'd say start Meachem. Gibson is going up against Dal D and Meachem is going against Indi D which technically should give him the better odds of making bigger plays and more targets from Brees. But both players haven't been superb by any means.

I like Meachem more this week, especially with Jimmy Graham missing practice due to his ankle

I'd start Meachem. He's usually good for one or 2 catches and a TD.
