Desperately need a win, FLEX help...please WHIR

Postby David592207 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 1:29 pm

Here is my roster and league parameters:

H2H Non-PPR 1RB/2WR+Flex 12 Team League

QB- Rodgers,Locker
RB- Forte,SJax,BJGE,Leshoure
WR- Welker,Lloyd,Harvin,Decker
TE- Tamme,Rudolph
D/ST- Lions,Cardinals
K- Bailey,Tucker

Forte has a BYE, so here is my starting line-up:

QB- Rodgers @ HOU
RB- BJGE @ CLE
WR1- Harvin @ WSH
WR2- Welker @ SEA
TE- Rudolph @ WSH
D/ST- Cardinals v. BUF
K- Tucker v. DAL

My FLEX choices in order of best to worst (in my opinion) are: 1) Decker @ SD, 2) Lloyd @ SEA, 3), Leshoure @ PHI, 4) SJax @ MIA, 5) Tamme @ SD

I play an opponent that's starting P. Manning and R. Mathews. His overall starting line-up is just slightly favored over mine. To have a good chance to win, Peyton has to struggle a bit. If that happens, maybe Decker doesn't get his. Am I betting against myself to have him starting? Or should I hedge my bet and keep him in the line-up, so if Manning goes off, Decker stands to reap some of the rewards. I wouldn't be so wacko about this whole thing if Rodgers wasn't going up against a great Houston D without Benson/running attack to keep them honest.

Lloyd is due for a break-out game, but I'd be surprised if it comes against a tough Seattle secondary. Leshoure is tempting choice, but had 2 inconsistent showings in his first 2 games back before the BYE week. I would like to see more before I roll with him confidently. SJax @ MIA looks like 20 touches for 35 yards type of game. Tamme busting out would be a complete surprise. Thanks for your help!

It's a tough one between Decker and Lloyd... It's like a coin flip in my mind

RB- A. Morris, L. Bell, A. Ellington, C. Ivory, M. James, D. Martin

Since it's a non-PPR...I would go with a RB in my opinion. So a coin flip between Leshoure & SJax.
QB - RGIII
WR - R. Wayne, A.J. Green, Antonio Brown, L. Moore
RB - M. Forte, Rashad Jennings, D. Murray, R. Mendenhall, J. Dwyer
TE - J. Witten, A. Gates
Flex - T. Richardson
K - R. Gould
DEF - Bears

Only because it's non ppr, I would go with LeShoure. Philly's Defense isn't strong against the run and we saw LeShoures potential when healthy.

Thanks for answering mine. I like Decker vs. SD even if the other guy has Peyton. Good matchup and I think with SD being tough on the run but soft through the air, you'll get more mileage that way than your other matchups which are pretty tough. If peyton throws a td to decker, you won't benefit by having some other player started.

I tend to side with the RB guys, LeShoure will get touches. Decker is the better option year round, but you never know when a receiver will get shut down.
