Week 8 Lineup Questions

Postby zjk924 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 3:14 pm

Hey all,

So I'm trying to decide who to put in, and I can't decide between a couple guys for my flex spots. I'm in a non-PPR league. There are two flex spots, one which is W/R, and the other which is W/R/T.
As of right now, the positions in question are:

RB: Mikel LeShoure vs. Seahawks
RB: Vick Ballard @ Titans
W/R: Alex Green vs. Jaguars
W/R/T: Dez Bryant vs. Giants

The bench players that I'm considering are:
Felix Jones (RB) vs. Giants
Martellus Bennett (TE) @ Cowboys

Dez Bryant continues to disappoint me, but Felix Jones is dealing with a leg injury and probably won't do too much either. I could go incredibly risky and have Martellus Bennett in, instead of either Alex Green or Dez Bryant, just because Eli Manning has been throwing to him a lot, and he averages about 7-9 points a week. OR do I take out LeShoure, due to the tough matchup. To complicate matters, Donald Brown may be back this week, which makes Vick Ballard ALSO risky, so I could put either Jones or Bennett in for him.

Leshoure is in one of the flex spots for sure.

As for the other, I like Dez the most. The giants dont defend receivers, especially big ones like Dez, very well.

I wouldn't fault you for going with Alex Green, as its possible he puts up decent numbers.

For the love of God do not put Felix in your line up. Even if he was 100% healthy, he is terrible and the cowboys O-line is terrible.

I was leaning towards Leshoure, Bryant, and Green, but that leaves one flex spot. Do I go with Vick Ballard, or Martellus Bennett? It's kinda crazy to even consider Bennett, but a) he's been a reliable 7-9 points pretty much every week, not bad for a flex b) Donald Brown may be back, which really throws a wrench into the whole 'Vick Ballard' thing.

Based on what you are saying I'd pick Bennett to finish it out. He's playing against his old team and I have a feeling he will have something to prove. Please don't start Jones, you'll regret it.
