Cant decide on Flex-Mendy, Spiller, Julio Jones, DJax-WHIR

Postby utility-hook » Thu Dec 15, 2011 12:17 pm

I know the saying, "stick with what got you here", but I have Mendy going against the #1 rush defense, VJax against the Ravens D, and Mike Wallace with the possibility of no Roethlisberger on Monday night. Should I stick with those guys or change it up a bit?

No ppr, no return yds, 10yds per point, 6 for tds
My lineup--need a RB or WR to fill flex spot
QB Eli vs vs Wash
RB Rice @ SD
RB Greene @ Phil
WR Wallace @ SF
WR VJax vs Balt
Flex ?
TE Gates vs Balt
K Gould vs Sea
D Cinn

Bench
Mendenhall @ SF
Spiller vs Mia
Julio Jones vs Jax
DJax vs NYJ

I could also pick up 1 of these guys to play at flex if need be
Kevin Smith @ Oak--may be back for this game
Keiland Williams @ Oak
Santana Moss @ NYG
Nate Washington @ Ind
Doug Baldwin @ Chic
Driver @ KC
James Jones @ KC
Gaffney @ NYG
Kevin Walter vs Car
Manningham vs Was

Thanks for help on mine.

JJ is the play here. He's hot.

SF is where RBs go to die, so no Mendy.
MIA is the #3 rush D, so no Spiller
Revis and company will be covering DJAX

I agree with Joe, start Julio Jones. When he is healthy and playing he is unbelievable.




Thanks for the help with mine.

All I know is bench Mendy for sure. Obviously he's been a bust this year. Add that to him getting stuffed at the goal line last week 4 times in row. Then add in that a lot better RB's have done nothing against the 49er's. Bench Mendy go with Jones.

I like Julio, too, though if Ben's out, I'd consider Julio at WR instead of M Wallace, and either play Spills or pick up K Smith at Flex. If it were me, I'd pick up Smith.

Help with mine?

Mendy has a terrible match up and has not been very consistent anyhow = bench
DJax is anything but consistent and trustworthy = bench
I like Julio slightly over Spiller due to match up. MIa has been tough on RB's

Help on mine?

Of your current crop, Julio Jones is the only option according to me. But he would have to have a long catch and run to give you the points...

I would be tempted to pick up either Santana or Gaffney from WAS from your waiver wire.. pick any one.. I believe Gaffney being the better play as the big target. NYG defense is bad as we saw last week and WAS has another easy matchup on Week 16 (Vikings). I think one of these 2 (whoever you think will be better) will serve you great in your playoffs.
