Who as my flex week 3: B. Lloyd (WR) or A. Brown (RB)?

Postby JRThon » Thu Sep 20, 2012 4:29 am

Hey - Really hope I can get a bit of input on this. Here goes:


My two starting WRs are:

Julio Jones & Brandon Marshall

My two starting RBs are:

Ray Rice & Marshawn Lynch


Now as my flex I have been doing my head in with whom to start week 3:

Brandon Lloyd (WR) against Ravens or Andre Brown (RB) against Panthers.


Since Bradshaw has gotten injured and Brown did a good job in round 2, I picked him up on the wire. He should be guaranteed a lot of touches this week IF he can keep his shit together and his game level as high as he did in round 2.

Lloyd on the other had is, imho, bound for a break-out game soon and with Hernandez injured for Pats, it could be this week. Big thing about Lloyd in my mind is, that he is going up against the Ravens D, and he hasn't yet put up big numbers.


What do you guys think?


Cheers from Denmark

I'd go with Lloyd. He may not get as many plays, but the plays he does get will be long and deep.

Cheers for the reply. ;-D

New development: Lloyd has reportedly had limited practice wednesday. No idea whether or not he is dealing with an injury or not.. Brown is starting to look better and better.

I'm still open for more thoughts, if anyone has an opinion.

I say go with Brown... His value is probably limited to this week so go ahead and use him while it is still there (I also have him).... Bradshaw will come back and Wilson will earn trust back and he is the superior talent....

I think I'd have to go with brown on this one. There are just too many options in NE, especially with them re-signing branch and signing Winslow, whereas brown is basically the #1 back with Bradshaw out and the other guy (can't remember his name) not looking so hot so far this season

Id go brown. Should see touches and facing a great matchup.

Lloyd hasnt hit the homer yet, and I agree he's bound too one week. But facing the ravens D, I don't love the matchup.


help me?
