Pick 1 for Flex

Postby KeithJ » Fri Nov 04, 2011 10:29 am

I have to decide between the following three for my flex spot (no PPR):

Jackie Battle
Benjarvis Green-Ellis
Miles Austin

Romo is my QB this week.

I'm leaning towards Austin but he hasn't done a whole lot since he's been back from injury. Benjarvis' toe is beat up a bit and now Faulk is going to be stealing some carries. I like Battle but even though he's the best runner on the Chiefs, they're still sticking with a three back attack.

Any suggestions?

I like Austin for the reasons you stated, and based on the matchup. Seattle is a lot worse against the pass than the run, and Dallas is going to be looking to bounce back big time after last week, so I see some big play potential out of Miles.

The Patriots also have a good run matchup, but there is too much sharing going on in the backfield to make me confident Law Firm will get enough looks.

KC's matchup is ok, but Miami isn't terrible against the run, and I see Battle having an average but not big game.

Battle may be a safer bet, but I think you have a better chance of big points w/ Austin.

Help with mine?

IMO, Austin and Battle have the best match-ups this week, but I'd take Austin over the others.

KC though has become a passing team, which is why I favor Austin at home versus Seattle. Seattle's run defense is damn good, so I predict they somewhat stop Murray and go to the air. Advantage Miles Austin.

Good luck!

Granted KC has a three RB system, Battle got the bulk of the carries especially during the 4th Q and OT.

12 Team, Standard ESPN Scoring:
QB - Stafford, Fitzpatrick
RB - Peterson, Forte, Battle, McGahee, Tate, Addai
WR - Wallace, Smith, Breaston, Moore
TE - Gates
DEF - 49ers, Cowboys
K - Kasay
