Bench Jordy Nelson to play Gates or Little? WHIR!

Postby liono123 » Sun Oct 23, 2011 9:21 am

Simple enough! Do I bench Jordy Nelson this week (@MIN) to play Antonio Gates (@NYJ) or Greg Little (SEA) at the flex spot?

Jordy Nelson had a great game last week, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this is gonna be an off week for him and that the balls are going to land in Jennings and Jones' hands...

I also feel like the Jets will be motivated after the poor showing on MNF last week, and they'll want to give LT the win against his former team. Gates will be needed at the goal line to keep the Bolts in this one.

Greg Little, on the other hand, is the clear WR1 for an offense where the QB is on track to throw the most passes in QB history. Sure, they're not being thrown deep, but you gotta like the upside there. The SEA secondary is garbage as well...

Let me know what you think. PPR league, with HUGE bonuses for 100 yards or 6+ receptions. WHIR!

I would stick with Nelson. Of those three I feel he has the best shot at going for over 100 yards.

I would play Gates, i think the Packers will have such a big lead by half time that their will be no need to pass in the second half.
