flex help..Heath Miller or Blount/ WHIR as always!

Postby 16FAC » Thu Oct 18, 2012 10:57 am

1pt/20 rush and rec......6pts/TD....non ppr
I've got Jimmy Graham in my lineup and he will stay there as long as he plays. With that said, my league allows a TE in the flex. So, I was thinking of rolling with Heath Miller seeing how he has been on top of his game lately. Add to that PITT plays Cincy and Ben always has good days against Ohio teams. Also, Mendy is banged up and Redman probably won't play so I see more over the middle stuff going Millers way.

Ok, Now Blount, he has seen his carries increase and is the obvious goal line back. Plus, NO is terrible defensively so his TD streak may continue this week. Its alot to hope for but I have my entire RB core on bye and am currently starting Felix and Ballard so why not throw all caution to the wind and hope Blount crosses paint again this week?

Thoughts?

Miller. I am a little scared of the Martin/Blount switcheroo

thanks for the help with mine

tough call here I would roll with miller though... TB could be playing catch up and martin may be the back on the field almost all of the time... maybe post your line up and maybe there is even a better option somewhere? or better option on the WW ? With these two options though I think I go Miller

Be careful....it doesn't look that great for Jimmy Graham this week. He might have the dreaded high ankle sprain, so you might need to start Heath in your TE spot and Blount in your flex....what does the WW look like??

Cincy has given up quite a bit of points to TEs this year. Add in that Pittsburgh has been throwing a TON this year, and I see Brown and Wallace stretching the field, leading to quite a few check downs to Miller. Also, with Mendy and Brown banged up right now, the Steelers could throw more in goal line situations this Sunday.

I think with Blount sharing carries, his risk/reward is a lot more. You would basically have to hope for a TD in his limited carries, which can be done against that terrible New Orleans D, but that's personally not something I would do.

I would say roll with Miller here.

As heavily weighted towards TDs as your league is, I would gamble on Blount.

Miller could have a great day in any other format with 6 rec/80 yds and still end up being a dud in your league.

I think you're right to like Blount against the terrible Saints run D.

Waiver Wire is void. My Lineup is horrid with all RB's of value on bye. Add to that, I just put Hawkins up in a waiver claim for Josh Freeman because Stafford scares the heck out of me this week.

My Lineup
QB= Stafford or Freeman
RB= Felix Jones and Ballard
WR=Dez Bryant and Randall Cobb
TE= Jimmy Graham
flex= Heath Miller or Blount...Hawkins a possibility only if I cancel Waiver

Ryan Williams

I guess this is mostly unrelated to your question, but you could drop Ryan Williams for Freeman unless you're really down on Hawkins. Williams is done for the year.

I have no idea why I put Ryan Williams I meant Ryan Mathews!

I'd go with Blount. He's got a good upside in your league format.
