Flex (Helu, Nelson, Edwards, Avant, Brinkley, Jones) WHIR

Postby Delhomme17 » Sun Nov 06, 2011 11:33 am

Roy Helu (SF)
David Nelson (NYJ)
Braylon Edwards (@WAS)
Jason Avant (CHI)
Curtis Brinkley (GB)
Taiwan Jones (DEN)

UPDATE: I dropped Brinkley and added Kevin Faulk

I need to start one of these guys at flex. Starting Forte and Rice at RB and DHB, Colston, and J. Baldwin at WR so I don't see any opportunities to start more than one guy from this bunch. Right now I'm leaning away from Nelson (Jets secondary, although Cromartie hasn't been great and Revis covering Johnson could lead to more targets for Nelson) and Helu (Shanny) and toward either Jones or Edwards. I'm unsure about the other two guys. Brinkley could be a good bet for a TD, but if he doesn't get one he'll be worthless. Avant has produced recently, but he's still the #4/5 option in the passing game behind DJax, Maclin, McCoy, and maybe even Celek.

Let me know what you think, and link me if you'd like me to take a look at yours. Gonna be stepping out for 40 min or so around 11:45 but I'll definitely get to yours before kick.

I'd go Avant. Bears take away deep ball and have been terrible against TE and slot WRs giving up underneath stuff.

I tried to post but apparently it didnt go through... my lean is towards Edwards here. Smith doesnt have a favorite option so spreads the ball around. I see Avant having a chance but theres just too many options out there in Philly. They did just announce Helu will start which makes me like him more but its a terrible matchup and you cant trust Shannahan with his RBs.

Avant is my pick. He's getting looks on a high-powered offense.

Help with mine?

Update: just grabbed Kevin Faulk from the FA pool and dropped Brinkley. Does this change anyone's answer?

Nope. I don't trust Belichek and his RB carousel. While Kevin Faulk got all the touches last week, who knows what happens this week.

Avant, with Edwards at No. 2.

Thanks for helping with mine!
