Flex Spot and RB Help.... 100% WHIR on Every Post... Cheers!

Postby etl1692 » Tue Nov 22, 2011 4:31 pm

Main Concerns This Weeks Starters!
:
1. Beanie Wells: I have to sit him because he will hardly get any touches.
2. Jackie Battle hasn't been doing Sh*T, but unfortunately I dont have another RB to replace Wells. Instead of Battle waivers is this... Kevin Smith (RB) vs. GB; Dexter McCluster vs. Pit; Toby Gehart vs. Atl (AP is hurt)
3. Flex Spot Start? Plaxico is always a huge target in the endzone and against the Bills Defense (divison game); Denarious Moore is hit or miss and against the Bears defense; Torrey Smith has looked pretty good from time to time and playing this thursday against a hard nosed 49er Defense; Steve Breaston not too hot on against the steelers defense; Fred Davis redskins suck but who knows against seattle.......

Thanks so Much! Leave a Link I will Respond!!!

My Team:
QB: Tony Romo
RB: Beanie Wells ; Fred Jackson

I would leave Beanie in and put Plaxico/Smith at flex.

I know Beanie has been horrible since the knee injury but he has had tough matchups at the same time. He is still getting the touches and I would bet he puts up a decent game against Stl. Maybe not RB2 worthy but flex worthy and better than the WW options.

Flex spot is based all on homerun ability. Either one of those guys is probably going to be boom or bust so I would lean towards Plax because of the matchup like you said.

I'd go with Smith instead of Beanie Wells. GB is actually pretty miserable at stopping the run. At the Flex I'd have to go with Plax. Def worth a touchdown, look how the Bills d did last week. D Moore is probably going to be inconsistent as a rookie, and Breaston just doesn't have a good QB anymore (maybe Orton soon to come? I think I might say Torrey Smith if it was any other defense besides the 49ers. They're offense-embarrassingly good this year.

I'd drop someone (Breaston) for Kevin Smith for sure, and play him over Beanie (or with, if FJax can't go). I like Torrey for the flex, SF's secondary is beatable.

I agree with dropping Breaston for Kevin Smith. But, I would stick with Beanie Wells against the Rams. They have the worst rushing defense in the league. At flex I would go with Plaxico. Like you said, he's a big target and gets the redzone looks. If not Plaxico, I would maybe take a chance on Kevin Smith if you can get him but Im just not sold on him yet after 1 big game.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I agree with adding Kevin Smith, although I think this week will be a tough matchup for him. GB isn't that bad against the run, but their opponents usually have to abandon it early to keep up. Plus, after last week, GB will key on him. I added him mostly for future weeks. However, I think he's your best option at RB. He can get some targets in the passing game, too. I'd drop Breaston for him. I had considered adding Beanie, but he's still healing and his carries might be limited. If you could wait until Sunday to hear that Beanie is doing ok, that'd make it different, but Smith plays Thursday, so you'll have to decide early. I'd rank your RB options: Jackson, Smith, Wells, Battle.

For your flex, I prefer your WRs in the flex spot, in this order: Moore, Smith, Plax. Moore and Smith are both "homerun hitters" and Moore has a slightly better matchup. Plus, with DHB's and Ford's injuries, he looks to get plenty of targets.

Hope this helps!

Beanie has a fantastic matchup and is the only legit rb in AZ. Then I'd gamble between Plax and Moore, I would go Plax but it's your call.
