DJax, Wayne, or Gerhart for flex? WHIR!

Postby Vandy263 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 1:13 pm

First week PPR quandary given that Matthews is sidelined. Looking for a flex start:

Desean Jackson vs Cleveland
Reggie Wayne vs da Bears
Toby Gerhart vs Jacksonville

TIA! WHIR! Leave link...

Reggie Wayne. Most reliable receiver in Indy and they will probably be playing from behind. Help with mine viewtopic.php?t=517857

Gerhert - he will be getting 20+ touches and has been a great replacement for AP in the past. He is a solid pass catcher as well. Help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=517889

i will break the tie and say...Desean jackson! I think he's in for a bounce back year and playing against a terrible Cleveland team should be the right way to start things off. As long as Vick is healthy i think DJax should be a solid WR2.

ps: i do like all 3, but Wayne has a tough matchup and isnt as explosive as Djax, and Gerhart would be good if you didnt have to worry about AP playing, he was a good change of pace when AP was out, but i dont know about him carrying the load.

I think the OP is more uncertain than ever, three replies and three different answers. :-B

I like DeSean. CLE is going to struggle with McCoy, Maclin and DeSean and I think DeSean is good for 80 and a solid chance for a TD. I don't think much of Toby and he doesn't have a big PPR upside with his qb. Reggie is a great WR. Am anxious and hopeful Luck proves worthy against a solid CHI defense. I'm curious, but I still like DeSean better.

I'll place a second vote for Wayne. Indy should be playing from behind, Philly should get out to a lead early and lean on McCoy and IF AP plays then Gerhart's numbers will be hurt.

Tough decision to have to make.

Go with Toby. Get your touches at flex. Wayne and DJAX are "Possible" big games. Toby is a much safer bet for week one.
