Need help finalizing my lineup especially FLEX!!

Postby Naps621 » Fri Sep 07, 2012 4:28 pm

I have 2 leagues that I am playing in. Both are standard scoring. I am mostly torn at the Flex option but I will obviously take any advice on tweaking my line-up. I am new to the cafe and fantasy so go easy on me lol

League One:
QB - Mike Vick
RB1 - Frank Gore
RB2 - Stevan Ridley
WR1 - Calvin Johnson
WR2 - Brandon Lloyd
TE - Jared Cook
Flex W/R - Jeremy Maclin
Available Bench:
RB - Ronnie Brown
RB - MJD
WR - Lance Moore
WR - Mike Wallace
WR - Robert Meachem
QB - Joe Flacco

League Two:
QB - Mike Vick
RB1 - Leasean McCoy
RB2 - Darren McFadden
WR1 - Julio Jones
WR2 - Percy Harvin
TE - Vernon Davis
Flex W/R - Toby Gerhart
Available Bench:
RB - Darren Sproles
RB - Rashard Mendenhall
WR - Jeremy Maclin
WR - Michael Crabtree
WR - Antonio Brown
WR - Lance Moore

Like I said any advice again would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Welcome to the Cafe ;-D
I think you picked the right guys in League 1. Wallace will go against Champ Bailey, and MJD will not see many touches so it is best to keep those guys on the bench. In league 2 I would start Sproles at flex over Gerhart.

I dont see anything I would change in either, looks like you got a ton of WR depth in the first league.. Might try to make a move for an upgrade RB is all I can say.. looks like you're fully on board the Vick train, you have a good back up in 1, but I would try a 2 for one deal to see if you can upgrade somewhere and then grab a Locker/Dalton/Flacco if available to back up in 2.

I agree, I would leave both as they are.

Yeah I have gotten a lot of criticism from friends for having Vick in both leagues. I actually really didn't want him but there was a run on QBs in the first and second round of my drafts and I actually ended up taking in in the 5th and 6th rounds respectively. That late in the draft I just couldn't pass him up lol

I know I definitely need RB depth especially in League 1. There just wasn't really anyone available, and as you can guess, by looking at the first draft that I picked relatively late hence my lineup not being very strong in 1. I figure that I can try and grab someone off the waiver wire or trade but I don't think I really have enough talent to trade for a top RB. i grabbed MJD in the 4th round figuring he is a steal at that round and hoping that after this week he becomes the back he usually is. Same idea with Mendenhall in league 2 I got him in the last round.
