Flex Position (Who should i start)

Postby icedmofo » Mon Aug 27, 2012 3:10 pm

Currently in a 12 team PPR league. I have a WR/RB/TE flex position that i need to decide who to start.

I have steve johnson as my WR3 and would normally start him, but week one the bills play the jets, so he'll be on revis island.

This is who i have left over for the RB/WR/TE flex position for week 1:

Stevie Johnson (vs. Jets)
Kendall Wright (vs. Patriots)
Michael Bush (vs. Colts)
Alfred Morris (vs. Saints)
Titus Young (vs. Rams)
Kyle Rudolph (vs. Jaguars)


Right now, with Johnson set for Revis Island, i feel like the strongest option would be Michael Bush, but i'm also toying around with the idea of putting in Kendall Wright for week 1 since he has solid chemistry with Jake Locker, and Kenny Britt likely won't be playing.


Thoughts/opinions?

I'd probably go with Kendall Wright, it's PPR, and he has looked solid so far. Plus the Patriots pass defense isn't exactly scary.

I'm hesitant about Wright bc even though NE's pass defense is almost worst in the league, he's got a rookie QB throwing to him (another rookie), so its doubly unproven.

Whereas Michael Bush is up against the Colts, who have a rush defense not more than 3 ranks better than NE's pass defense, plus i know he can produce, even if its just short yardage/goal line work.

That's definitely a good point. This is indeed a tough one, it comes down to which one feels better in the gut.

I think i ultimately have to play it safe with Bush until the Locker/Wright connection proves that its there beyond the preseason and effective against 1st team corners.

At worst i have a sleeper on my team that will develop over the season.
