6 players with 3 spots to fill.. Who to start??

Postby freebag02 » Thu Nov 03, 2011 1:09 pm

Byes are hurting me this week and I need rb/wr/flex help. I play in a PPR league and have 6 different options for 3 spots to fill. Here's my linep:

RB1: M Turner
RB2: ?
Flex: ?
WR1: L Fitzgerald
WR2: ?

Options:
RB's: Green-Ellis, J Battle, P Hillis (quest)
WR: E Decker, J Avant, D Hester

Who do I start?!! Thanks!

I think you have to go like this:
RB2: Battle
Flex: Hillis (practiced in full today, monitor practice tomorrow)
WR2: Any of the 3 WR.

If Hillis is out I'd probably go Decer/Avant... but that is mostly because I'm a Packer fan :)

Thanks for helping with mine.

I'd say RB should be Battle, he's getting the carries and gets MIami this week.

WR should be Avant, unless there is anything else out on the waiver. I don't trust any of those WR's, but Avant probably has the best matchup and definitely the best QB

Flex, Green-Ellis. If NE gets out to a lead, and I suspect they will, Green-Ellis is the guy who gets the rock the most. Bush ran for over 100 yards on NYG last week. If he can do it, anyone can.

It's a 12 team PPR league with 8 bench spots and a flex.. so the waiver wires are pretty dry.

Only other WR's out there worth a crap are Jerome Simpson, Laurent Robinson, Torry Smith or Jon Baldwin.. none of them really jumped out at me either.

My normal WR is Steve Smith so this is the only week all year I've got this problem.

You think with Faulk back in the mix that BGE is about done for the year? Thinking about trading him for a decent WR while I still can..

Thanks!

RB - Battle, he will get receptions too which helps in PPR

WR - Decker, I know he had a rough week last week, but the Lions are a pretty dominant D and sacked Tebow a bunch. I don't think that happens again as badly this week

Flex - Hillis for sure, almost put him as RB but really doesn't matter. It sounds like he is a full go and Hardesty is injured so should be a big workload for him.

Thanks for the help on mine.

Thats a tough one but I think you start Battle, Law Firm, and Decker.

Opinion based solely on upside as I dont think any of those recievers have big days but Decker has a chance. Battle with definitely get touches and hopefully BGE is over his toe injury and Belicheat doesnt go back to his man crush on Faulk.

Thanks for thoughts on mine.

I would go with Battle
BJGE depending on Hillis status
and I like Avant because Tebow can't seem to throw a spiral

Battle/Hillis if he plays and Avant. Cant play Decker with teabag throwing or not throwing I should say... And Hester is just not that great of an option. Hell of a return guy, possibly the best ever, but below average WR.

I'm thinking BJGE, Hillis, and Decker. I think Decker has the most upside to score you more points, but also has a lot of risk attached with Te-blow throwing the ball.
