Week 9 Flex? WHIR

Postby Drift Monkey » Tue Nov 01, 2011 8:01 pm

My roster is kinda shaky with Nicks and Beanie injured, but I'm starting them unless something goes terribly wrong in practice this week.

My real issue is at flex. I could start Battle, Thomas, Manningham, or Neslon here. Manningham sticks out the most here, IMO.

  • Manningham did a decent job at flex for me last week and gets a tasty match up v the Pats this week. He'll get a go at the WR spot if Nicks can't.
  • Battle plays Mia, which isn't as great as a match up considering The Fins have been decent against the run.
  • Nelson is a gamble as usual, but SD isn't that favorable anyway.
  • Thomas is a question mark. I'd start him if he can show he's healthy, but clearly he hasn't been, and his production is hurting from it.

Thoughts?

I'd probably rate them
1: manningham has caught 5 or 6 passes last 3 weeks and pats pass defense blows
these two are close but i would go the following order

2: battle will get double digit carries this week so he'll have a greater chance to do somthing than jordy; who will maybe catch 3....though as you insinuated one of those 3 could be for a touchdown.
3: jordy

I always favor RBs over WRs. My heart says Battle. Manningham has struggled up until last week, but he is up against the worst pass D in the league. If Nicks can go, I'd also start Manningham. Nicks and Manningham on the field at the same time is valuable. If Nicks can't go, Manningham will see extra coverage, and I'd go with Battle. So, see what the news is on Nicks Saturday and go from there.

If Nicks can't go...I'd be left with Manningham or Neslon at WR. I'd probably play Manningham at WR and Battle at flex at that point.

I suppose I overlooked that lol. If Nicks can't go, then Manningham in WR, and Battle in the flex.

I think your best chance of winning comes from getting Battle in there. He is going to get plenty of touches and miami has been bad enough in all phases that KC should be able to win the game.

If Nicks goes obviously he is the best choice as the true #1 but Manningham should be an adequate fill in. For fantasy purposes I think that Nelson is too boom or bust especially with Finley already in your starting lineup.

Thanks for thoughts on mine.

Manningham for sure. If Nicks can't go, I'd play Battle at Flex but wouldn't hesistate to play Jordy Nelson here either.

Help with mine?
