This guy or That guy? Week 10! WHIR

Postby patriotsbeatz » Wed Nov 07, 2012 3:31 pm

16 Team ESPN Standard - QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/WR/TE/FLEX/K/D + 4 Bench

Pick 1 TE:
Hernandez BUF (Opponent starting Gronkowski)
Gresham NYG

Pick 1 Flex:
Hawkins NYG
D. Richardson @SF
Vereen BUF (#2 RB, Bolden out as of now )
Hernandez BUF
Gresham NYG

Buffalo has the worst run def in the league at least in terms of surrendering fantasy points. Last time NE played Buf, NE racked up over 250 yards rushing and that is why I am leaning Vereen for the flex right now.

I think Hernandez @ TE.

As for Flex - Wow! Yuck! I know it is a 16 team legue so premium is thin, but there has to be somebody better on the WW! Is Reece from OAK available? DMC is out. Maybe Emmanuel Sanders from PIT with Antonio Brown out.

If these are the only choices, I'd go with Gresham as he is the only other starter. They all have brutal matchups or somebody else in front!

Thanks for your input, I responded to yours.

I was #15 on the WW priority and I needed a QB so... plus all those guys you mentioned are already on rosters or were taken WAY ahead of me on the WW.

I like Gresham, too... though I am leaning Vereen b/c of how terrible Buffalo is & how many yards were racked up on the ground by NE last time the two teams played this season. But, I guess Gresham is the safer choice. I'm on the fence btwn these two.

Gresham and Vereen are your best options in my eyes this week especially with buffalo's history against the New England run.

thanks for help with mine. I like Hernandez and Gresham here as well, with Hawkins being my 2nd choice at the flex spot. I try but I am just not comfortable starting any pats RBs in a team that is so pass heavy. True, they did score big the last time they played Buffalo, but I believe this was a game where Hernandez was sitting out and that forced them to rely a little more on the ground game. If Hernandez isn't cleared to play Vereen is a decent reach, but it's looking like Hernandez will suit up this week.

I'd have to say Hernandez...then probably Gresham with Hawkins as a close second. Thanks for the help on mine!

Thanks for the help guys.

It's looking more and more like Hernandez & Gresham. Hopefully not setbacks for Hernandez.

I think that Hernandez and Gresham are your best options as well. They both get lots of targets. ;-D

"Hernandez (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday against the Bills, NFL.com reports."

This is concerning :-t Hernandez is unlikely to play, the pats activated Shiancoe yesterday and will probably roll with him this week. Looks like Gresham and a toss up between Hawkins and Vereen.
