Need to pick up a TE, and maybe a flex, good options on WW

Postby Warhawk » Thu Oct 18, 2012 6:53 pm

Less of a "should I pick this guy up and who should I drop" thread as much as it's a "what would improve my team from this list" thread. Need a TE since my only one (Tony G) is on a bye. Also might need a flex (right now I have Antonio Brown, Brandon Lloyd, James Jones, and Steven Jackson for 2 spots, 1 WR and 1 Flex). Non-PPR league, standard NFL.com scoring. There are a couple good options at RB on the WW, but I'm already pretty solid at the position.

Basically, here's my roster (italics on bye this week - have to start 2 RB/2 WR/1 Flex):

QB: Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton
RB: Ray Rice, Ryan Mathews, Jamaal Charles, Stevan Ridley, Steven Jackson
WR: Victor Cruz, Greg Jennings (probably still not playing), Brandon Lloyd, James Jones, Antonio Brown
TE: Tony Gonzalez
K: Greg Zuerlein
Def: Arizona

Here's what's available on the WW:
WR: Brian Hartline, Andre Roberts, Andrew Hawkins, Randall Cobb, Mike Williams, Josh Gordon, Jeremy Kerley, Sidney Rice, Nate Burleson, Brandon Stokley, Davone Bess, Kendall Wright, Donnie Avery, Santana Moss
RB: Shonn Greene, Mikel LeShoure
TE: Heath Miller, Scott Chandler, Jermaine Gresham, Brent Celek, Martellus Bennett, Greg Olsen, Dennis Pitta, Fred Davis

So, obviously I need to pick up a TE - so who should I drop? Should I pick up either of those RBs, even though my roster is pretty good at the position already? Are any of those WRs an upgrade over what I have? And who should I start this week at flex anyway?

I would pick up Miller for your TE. He has had a pretty solid year so far and Big Ben likes to target him especially in the red zone. I would say for a possible flex (depending on the scoring for your league) R. Cobb could be a great option, he always gets good yardage on returns plus he has been making more of an impact on receiving too. They are going against a tough D with the Texans though this week. I would personally say drop Maclin. I just don't see the Eagles being a consistent team for scoring many points.

Just realized I actually don't have Maclin on this team. :-B
