Need serious help for WR,RB & Flex this week. 100% WHIR

Postby freshlesh » Fri Nov 04, 2011 12:02 pm

PPR, 1pt 10yd rsh, 1 pt 15yd rec, 6pt any TD

I've got some injuries and byes this week, so your help on a couple of my spots this week would be appreciated.

With Ryan Mathews hurt, for my RB2 I'm considering using Kevin Faulk, but I also have Daniel Thomas (injured?), Marshawn Lynch and Delone Carter.

For WR2 spot this week, I've got to choose between Julio Jones (injured?) and Jonathon Baldwin.

Any of these players can be used for my flex. Which way would you go?

I'm going to leave my opinions out in order to get some unbiased answers. Thanks in advance and leave a link!

I like Faulk this week. Just saw a report that BJGE is still gimpy. Faulk should be top choice for Pats.

Julio has the better matchup @ IND. Probably Roddy's breakout and, if they are up early, heavy on Turner, but I still think Julio is the better choice. Baldwin only operates well when there is a shutdown corner on Bowe. He is too sketchy yet to trust. Besides, I'd rather have Matty Ice throwing to my guy than Matt Cassel!

I don't trust Colts or Dolphins, so I would go Lynch on the Flex.

Also, Brinkley is on the wire. If he plays, should I take him? He was a beast last week when Mathews went down. I could see him taking a bunch of carries from Tolbert this week.

I don't like any of your options, almost all of your choices are banged up. Faulk has been limited in practice all week and I wouldn't trust him, Thomas is a game time decision and I expect Bush to carry the workload this week. The backfield is too crowded in Indy so by the process of elimination I'd go with Lynch.

Start Jones over Baldwin.

I'd go Lynch and Jones (if healthy) as well.

Thanks for your help on mine.
