Flex help, WHIR! Reece, Young or Smith?

Postby crazymike0907 » Thu Nov 15, 2012 1:36 pm

Titus Young vs Green Bay
Marcel Reece vs New Orleans
Steve Smith vs Tampa Bay

All 3 guys are against pretty good matchups, I'm just not sure which to start.
Young is "projected" to get the most according to nfl.com leagues, but as you all know projections are usually BS. Right now, my 2 backs are ray rice and jamaal Charles and WRs are andre Johnson and Julio jones, so I could always sub one l them out also for the 3 listed above. So what do u guys think? Thanks again, and as always, WHIR

i see carolina playing catch up this game forcing them to air it out. smith has 1 TD but will get 80 to 90 yards a game. i think he is the more safe choice of the 3. however reece is the guy in oakland and is playing a horrible saints defense and also presents the threat to catch the ball out of the backfield. so if you need a game changer and willing to take a chance go with reece. but if your looking for stability go with smith..

agree with the above post, I'd roll with Smith but Reece is a really close option

Your league's scoring might affect it too. Are you PPR? Reece had 7 receptions but also 13 carries last week, while Smith only has 4 receptions and one carry in the last two games. Harder matchups, but still. I'm leaning towards Reece.

If it's PPR go with Reece, if standard go with Smith.

Oakland is most likely going to be in a shootout with NO so Reece will get a ton of checkdowns...maybe even 10+ catches.
