Foster injury = major chaos. WHIR

Postby drhanl » Fri Sep 07, 2012 8:09 pm

PPR League, 12 team league

QB: Eli
RB: Foster vs MIA
RB: Sproles vs WAS
WR: Bowe vs ATL
WR: Blackmon at MIN
Flex: Jennings at MIN
TE: Gronk

Bench:
Garcon at NO
DEM. Thomas vs PIT
Hayward-Bay vs SD
Redman at DEN

I have been struggling with this decision all week, even before the Foster injury. I am considering sliding Jennings into RB2 and starting a WR at Flex. I have lots of good options at WR, but they are all boom or bust type plays.

Advice appreciated. Leave links for WHIR.

I'd use Garçon as your Flex.

Most upside for a big game IMO vs the saints secondary. Redskins are gonna have to throw often.

If Foster is a go I'd stand pat with your line up. But if you have to move someone up to flex I think I'd go with D. Thomas. You know that Manning is going to try to develop a rapport with him even with the tough match up.

I agree. Put Garcon in your flex spot and promote Jennings to RB.

I'd also bench Blackmon for DHB, but that's just me.

I have the same issue.. having Foster my 1st overall draft pick having injury issue from the week 1...
I personally have Foster on the flex spot at the moment to keep him and if needed switch him out with Demariyus Thomas myself.

First, heck of a draft for a 12 team PPR. Nice to have these tough decisions.

I really like Sproles in PPR so I leave him there.

I do like Garcon getting balls from RGIII over Blackmon getting them from Gabbert. So I would make my WR2 Garcon and then you decide between Blackmon or Jennings for your felx. I think it's a toss up but the tie-breaker is to put a RB in the flex vs a WR. So keep Jennings in at Flex

Wow, all 3 WR have their pros and cons. Garcon is a question of the QB, Thomas and H-Bay will depend on who lines up across from them. Personally, I would probably start Thomas simply based on the QB and his need for a go-to receiver. H-Bay depends on which Palmer shows up. Just my 2 cents...
