Flex and maybe a WR **WHIR**

Postby prophecy135 » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:33 pm

Need a flex in a PPR with 2 point bonus for 40+ yard plays, 3 point bonus at 100 yards, 2 at 150 yards. Options are:

DeMarco Murray vs. TBB
Steve Smith vs. NYG
Antonio Brown @ OAK

I think its an obvious no, but would you start Smith over AJ Green @ WAS or Julio Jones @ SD?

I think Steve Smith could have a big day against a weak giants secondary but could see a lot of double coverage forcing cam to look elsewhere. Murray looks like a better option as I see the cowboys bouncing back from a bad week and looking strong. The bucs made Andre brown look good, so I think Murray looks better.

I agree with your no with not starting smith over green or jones.

I like Murray here too. All three could be argued. Brown is heavily targeted but can't seem to find the end zone, Smith has a good match-up, but Murray should lay waste to TB.

Murray should have a big day. A. Brown will have a big first quarter or two until the steelers are up 28-3 at half and they rush the rest of the game. Steve Smith will be the one to get your bonus points... i think they will have to throw the ball all game against NY bc itll be back and forth. I say go w S Smith 7 catches 110 yds and a TD.

Wish I could give you a different perspective here, but I agree with the previous posters. I'd go with Murray. He's the kind of back that can take a few hits for a loss and then bust one for 40 or 50. Real home run potential against a suspect Buccaneer defense. I like him, a lot!

Thanks for helping me with mine! ;-D

Like others have mentioned, I'd go with Murry even though Smith is always a monster due to the match-up. Thanks for the help!!!

Alright, I'll do it. I'm going to say start Smith over Murray at flex. I really like this matchup and Smith is putting up big yards. All he needs to do is put it in the end zone. Murray should also bounce back with a big day, but I think Smith has better odds with receptions and yards while it's about even that either one gets a TD.

Thanks for the help!

I like Murray at flex. I think Giants will key in on Smith.
