Flex: A.J.Green or B.Jacobs? WHIR!

Postby Haba13 » Fri Nov 11, 2011 4:24 pm

Standard scoring. I need to pick my flex starter from A.J.Green and Brandon Jacobs. Both got pretty tough match ups this week. Opinions? Thanks!

Jacobs is who I would roll with. Bradshaw is out for the game and Jacobs gets the goaline carries as well. I really don't like A.J. Greens matchup this week and expect bigger numbers from the #2-3 WRs Cincy has in Caldwell and Simpson. Ike Taylor (CB) for the Steelers has consistently held opposing #1 WRs to average or below average numbers all year.

SF shuts down RB's period! And Jacobs, the last I checked, is pretty old and averages about a yard a carry. He had a good game last week. I expect him to have no more than 50 yards this week.

I would definitely go A.J., who has been unbelievably consistent. Guy scores nearly every week. Matchup not great, but much better than Jacobs.

They both have horrid matchups, so you gotta go with the better player who is def Green. Jacobs did well but only against the pats, let's seem him do it again against the best d instead of the worst. Green is still a threat to score.

AJ 100%. Neither has a good matchup by any means but SF is stopping everyone. they haven't even allowed one rushing td.

Oh boy. This is a tough one. Green is a good redzone option and there's always that chance the Steelers will slip up and give up a long ball. Jacobs on the other hand is going to get shut down. He's a one dimensional runner and the 49ers D will control the game. Stick with Green here.
