Flex Help ! WHIR

Postby crockies99 » Sat Oct 13, 2012 6:34 pm

I am in a 12 team PPR league, my team is below.

Who would you start in the flex position?

Doug Martin (RB), James Jones (WR), Owen Daniels (TE), or Vick Ballard (RB)

I keep on wanting to start Owen Daniels over all these guys. The only thing that keeps me from doing so is I think Martin could break out against the Chiefs. Or Jones could be in a shootout scenario or Ballard could be big against the Jets defense.

Who would you go with?

Leave a link and I'll post on yours as well.

QB M. Stafford, C. Palmer
RB M. Forte, M. Lynch, Demarco Murray, Lamar Miller, M. Bush, L. Bell
WR L. Fitzgerald, R. Cobb, TY Hilton, K. Thompkins, J. Blackmon
TE J. Cameron, H. Miller
D Steelers
K P. Dawson

I would go with Martin. He will likely touch the ball the most and he's playing against a suspect Chiefs team. Ballard might be an OK choice for the same reason, but Indy will likely throw more because, well, they have Andrew Luck. Jones will fight for touches and Daniels has been fairly unimpressive this year.

For me it would depend on how you see your matchup. If you are going up against someone who you think is likely going to beat you, I'd swing for the fences with Vick Ballard and see what he can do against an unimpressive Jets D. If its a game where you are likely to win or have it be close, I'd probably start Doug Martin simply because of touches, but really, its hard to pick between the remaining 3. I unenthusiastically support Martin due to Blount likely taking goal line touches away

since it's a ppr league, daniel is the safest pick, he's been consistent with 4-5 catches per game. but if u r playing aggressively, u wanna be the winner, go with martin. after all, i guess u drafted him pretty high hoping that he can win you the league right? so give him a chance.

That's a tough one. I would go with Daniels. More consistent. Jones could be intriguing with Jennings still out and Nelson is not doing much. But against a scary match up.

Please help.

i would go ballard... probably going to get a majority of carries on a spongy jets D, and probably should see his share of target out of the backfield too.
