Flex Anguish! Nicks/Beanie/A. Brown/Helu/Tate?! WHIR

Postby RedBirdChica » Sun Nov 13, 2011 10:39 am

10 team standard league - with +1 bonus points for 100+ yards rushing/receiving and 40+ yard plays.

Nicks is my only afternoon player (eligible for flex) - so I am against playing Nicks as I'd have no replacement should he come up lame during pre-games. Watch the fantasy world bench him ... and score 30 points in sheer spite.

VJax has already put me in the hole with his 2.2 points on Thursday. Who gives me the best chance? Right now, I have Brown penciled in.

WHIR 100% with full analysis

QB: Ben Roethlisberger
RB: Chris Johnson (who I am going to trust this week. CRINGE)
RB: Rashard Mendenhall
Flex: ????????????????????????????????
WR: Vincent Jackson
WR: Dez Bryant
TE: Owen Daniels
D/ST: Bears
K: Kasay

BE Beanie Wells vs Philly
BE Hakeem Nicks vs SF
BE Antonio Brown vs Cincy
BE Roy Helu vs Miami
BE Ben Tate vs TB
BE Laurent Robinson vs Buf
BE Jake Ballard

Brown is a good choice, as is Nicks. Neither have a great matchup but have more talent than your alternatives.

In order
Nicks
Brown
Beanie
Tate
Helu

thanks for the help with mine.

Even with Nicks as a 50/50?? I don't know if I have the stomach to gamble on him - I have a tough matchup this week.

Thanks for the help with mine, great reply. I'd roll with Antonio Brown. He's been great for 3 weeks in a row and is a growing part of the Steeler's offense. No way I'd trust Nicks this week.

I would go with Tate. He will get his touches and I see 85 yds and a td. A. Brown isn't a bad choice, Ben throws a ton...but the wind is an issue today

Another vote for Tate who's on pace for over 1000 yards and 10 (I think) scores this season. The Texans should run on the Bucs all day and I like Tate's chances to score and post good numbers. I don't trust Nicks or the Giants offense today, and I Wells will be leaned on for AZ, so I'd go:

Tate
Wells
Brown

Help in return?

Thanks for the help.

I'm doing a similar thing as what you posted and going against the grain. I'd play Beanie. He's practiced all week which means he should see 20 plus carries. He's scored in 14 of 17 games he's started and had 15 carries or more. **Stats via Nathan Zegura (sp?) aka the fantasy consultant**

No on Nicks with no replacement option.
No on Helu wih Grossman now starting.
Brown and Tate are interesting. Brown is a #2 receiver who may catch 4-5 balls or may catch 0-1. Tate is great but the back up RB can't always go off....right? Right?

My vote stays with Beanie. Good luck!
This whole thing works better if you actually participate! HELP ME TO HELP YOU...

Thanks for the help on my post....

I wouldn't play Nicks at all...last I heard was he is out (or going to be out) either way I wouldn't risk that situation at all and have you be down in the whole bigtime!

I would actually go with what someone else said....B.Wells....(not cause I have him too...lol) but he has practiced all week, they said he looked real good in practice. When healthy (seems like he is getting there and probably the most healthy he has been in a long time) he can shred some Def so I see him dropping down some bigtime STATS today.

As for the others I would rank them in this order:

Wells
A.Brown
Tate
Helu
Nicks

Also saw you had L.Robinson (as my question was in regards too) so I would have added him into the mix as well and would probably rank him below Brown or Tate (Tate is a beast but you never know how much Foster will get and when they bring in Tate for cleanup so that's an uncertainty and I hate uncertainty's...lol

Good luck!

I'd go with Tate here. Even though Big Ben has handled it fairly well in the past, the wind is blowing hard in the Pittsburgh game. Otherwise, I would go with A. Brown.

Thanks for the help with mine!
