Bryant or Cruz? WHIR

Postby Pl3onner » Fri Nov 04, 2011 1:21 pm

Need a flex guy for this week and I refuse to start BJGE. Standard Scoring, non ppr, 10 team nfl

I thought Bryant was the obvious choice but people are saying last week could be an negative indicator for him. Even with Nicks out I still think the Giants are going to be passing a lot, and Cruz is a new favorite target for Manning.

Also have Mendy but it's an awful matchup. WHIR 100% just leave your link, thanks.

I'd go Mendy. I know it's a tough matchup, but he's guaranteed a bunch of touches--- which you can't say about the other two. If the two WRs, I'd go Cruz. They are saying the coaches aren't happy with Bryant's preperation.

Cruz will be a good start with Nicks doubtful.

Mendy is an iffy start due to the Ravens D. I'd say it's a tossup between those two.

Completely agree, I am leaning towards Cruz though especially since Hicks is doubtful. Just an awful matchup for Mendenhall.



thanks for the help with mine.

With Nicks out I go Cruz against the Pats. approx 100 yds, and a possible score are reasonable expectations. Dont like Mendy vs Ravens, and Dez is hit or miss right now. Plus i see Romo trying to get on the same page as Austin this week to get back on track....i think he has a bigger game.




Help?

I have to agree with Cruz, I don't like Mendy's chances against Pit's defense, and with Nicks out he should be a good option.

If Nicks doesn't play which he most likely wont I like Cruz.

Yep, with Nicks banged up I'd go with Cruz.

Cruz has a favorable matchup against one of the worst passing defenses in the league. I'd expect he and Manningham to get more targets/receptions with Nicks unlikely to play.
