Need help picking QB, RB2, and Flex. WHIR.

Postby cals51 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 3:40 pm

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I'm in a bit of a conundrum. I have to set my lineup tonight for Thursday's game because I have two midterms tomorrow that will last me through kick-off.

PPR league otherwise standard scoring.

Josh Freeman (MIN) or Philip Rivers (CLE) at QB?

My RB1 is Ryan Mathews. For RB2 and Flex my options are Alfred Morris (PIT), Doug Martin (MIN) and Stevan Ridley (STL). I'm stumped here. I'm leaning towards Morris and Martin, but having two Bucs play on Thursday night worries if they don't play well. Am I overthinking this? Any input would be appreciated. WHIR.

edit: I also Mike Williams and Kenny Britt as options for Flex, but I doubt I'd be willing to start either over any of my RB.

Rivers, Morris and Martin. I have Ridley myself and he scares me more every week, I'd be happy to have an excuse to not start him. Minnesota is a tough matchup but Martin should get some PPR love. Morris is a borderline stud and Pittsburgh's D doesn't scare me this year.

This guy has broken it down as I would.

I would go with Rivers, Martin and Morris.

Thanks to those who told me to start Martin. I last second put him and Freeman in and scored 55.5 pts between the two.
