Best and Julio using up my flex position-help

Postby cooker » Sat Oct 22, 2011 12:22 pm

Two situations at hand:
1)In one league I have Julio/Best in an 8man league that are starting to stretch me out here now that Best is out indefinitely and Julio has just said he doubts he’ll be back before week 10 and who knows if that holds. Looking ahead I’m almost covered if both came back by week 11 but could be in a pickle via injury/bad matchups. Two RB’s avail are Murray/Morris and both have good schedules. Jones has a great schedule and situation but D.Thomas could break out in Denver. Also avail WR’s are Manningham/Little/James Jones, etc. but have a feeling on Thomas. Something has to give here quick since it’s about winning right now in 8man leagues especially using best talent on hand. If Morris has a good game he’s gone and I’m screwed with Best indefinitely. Murray similar thoughts. Would you guys sit tight or move both? Don’t like this feeling and need to hang on to first place here.

2)Have Julio in another league but could dump him gambling on James Jones or my thought…Demaryus Thomas! This is all that is left in this 12man league and I’m in 9th of 12 in this one. Could be okay here with Julio again but hammy concern at least thru week 10 and again have feeling on DThomas but maybe not this week! Thoughts?

Thanks guys!

Its ok to drop talent if there is good stable talent to replace them with.
For Q1: post your roster (with byes)
Q2: Need roster (with bye week info) and FAs.

I can only drop position for position in both leagues, trades are out and must have two te's, kickers, defenses. My weakest links on my team are Julio and now Best with his situation. Here's my team if it helps with byes unless done already:
QB: Vick7/Tebow
WR:Austin,SSmith(Car)9,Maclin7,Julio8
RB:Forte8,Mendy11,Daniel Thomas,Best9
TE:Jimmy Graham,Gates
Kicker:Hanson,Kasay
Defense:Philly/Dallas

I"ve already mentioned the best FA's in scenario#1 and in #2 the best WR avail is probably James Jones/Crabtree/Demaryus Thomas who I have a feeling on but not this week.

Could grab Crabtree to fill in for Julio. He had a great game against the Lions and will be the number one wr from here on out. Could he possibly finally be the WR that everyone thought he could be?

He actually has a pretty good schedule and will lose some looks once Edwards is back but he has the talent if he can stay healthy. The passing game seems to be picking up as well. Agree with the upside thought. I've owned him in the past and it seems you chase his stats but a strong consideration since Julio hammy will linger through week 10 and could all year. Hammy issues are big in the NFL this year.
