What do you guys think? Hillis would become my flex...
Non-PPR. 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 WR/RB, 2 TE, 1 D, 1 K Starters: QB: Aaron Rogers, Michael Vick, Ryan Fitzpatrick RB: Knowshon Moreno, Matt Forte, Beanie Wells, Ryan Mathews, Delon Carter, Peyton Hillis WR: Mike Wallace, Mario Manningham, Pierre Garcon TE: Jake Ballard, Jimmy Graham D: Jets K: Jason Hanson
Since you start literally 3 RBs, that's a hard decision to make. You'd have 2 star RBs in Forte and Ray, but thin at flex (although you could make a case for Knowshon with Willis out) and WR3. I'd still go for this trade though, especially since Matthews may be hurt.. Also, try to go for a WR with maybe a Fitzpatrick
Yeah, this is a fluid situation with Mathews' injury. With a healthy Mathews, I'd keep what you have. Hillis hasn't shown me anything all year ... I'd hate to have to depend on him (you can't count on Moreno or Carter to produce).
I think this is probably a trade you should make. Beanie has that knee injury that is going to linger all year according to him, and with Mathews' groin, who knows how much time he'll miss. Rice has been healthy and productive, I think you're getting a sure thing, and while it leaves you weak at flex, you're bound to run into problems at flex anyways this year given the injuries to Mathews and beanie.
