Who to start at RB/WR/Flex for week 3? WHIR

Postby Apoplectic » Tue Sep 18, 2012 12:11 pm

I'm wondering who to start week three for RB WR and Flex. I've got two RB slots, two WR's and one flex. PPR league.

Here are my RB's:

DeMarco Murray
Michael Bush
Darren Sproles
Mikel LeShoure
Rashard Mendenhall

Here are my WR's:

Wes Welker
Percy Harvin
Miles Austin
Stephen Hill

I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with Murray and Bush at RB, Sproles at flex and Harvin and Austin at WR. I'm just not sure if I should risk either Welker, LeShoure, or Mendenhall at flex. Welker could actually get some targets for once this week with Hernandez out. With Jahvid Best out LeShoure could get some quality touches, but who knows how he will be after the suspension? I could go with Mendenhall since Redman and Dwyer has been fairly disappointing so far, but who knows if he's 100% and if he can keep his knee OK through the game?

I'd agree with most of your picks. I might switch out Miles Austin for Wes Welker though (more looks for Welker now that Hernandez is out). As for your flex, stick with Sproles. Leshoure won't get that many carries (1st week back from injury while averaging ~2 yards per carry in the preseason). Mendenhall won't even suit up this week.

Welker over Austin in ppr. Everything else looks right.

Welker for Austin, like everybody else. Other choices look good, let Leshoure prove himself first since you've already got solid options.

Sproles is a must start at RB in PPR, not a flex filler. Murray and Harvin as well. The only real question should be for WR and Flex: Austin, Welker, or Bush. Of those three, I like Austin and Welker best. I think Bush has potential since Forte is out, but he is only averaging 3.7 yds/carry and while he may get the goal line look, I'm not convinced he's a lock to get a TD. He got two TD's in week one, and zero on Sunday...

If you don't like sitting Bush, then sit Austin.
