Starting at Flex: Harvin, Floyd or LaFell

Postby pedigo328 » Thu Sep 20, 2012 3:40 pm

I'm stuck between two receivers who have proved themselves both weeks thus far, however, one having an obvious more thorough history then the other. Percy Harvin is playing a strong 49ers defense this week with a quarterback that isn't very strong, and so I worry his points may go down significantly. Brandon LaFell has been a huge target for Cam Newton, and Carolina is playing the Giants, a mediocre defense. Lastly, there is also Malcolm Floyd who has been a great target for Rivers, however, Rivers has also been moving the ball around quite a bit. He has scored 10+ points though in both of the weeks.

Harvin on many occasions with be the for sure starter, but are there any other insights or possible alternative opinions to one of the other guys?

Lafell, giants D is shaky so far and cam newton looks like he should be back in last year form (not week 1).

Harvin is second in the league (behind only Cruz) for targets/touches. He's got my vote.

That was something that I was also heavily thinking about which makes benching Harvin hard to deal with. However, don't you think the 9ers def will shut down him and/or Ponder quite a bit?
