Facing the prospect of having to bench Julio Jones. In his place (as flex) do I start:

Danny Woodhead against Indi
Jermaine Gresham @ KC
Joique Bell against GB or
Josh Gordon @ Dal?

None of them.

You're welcome.


Sorry, I am just so frustrated with this question. This is now the 6th time I have started replying to this. I can see it going Gresham's way if he reaches pay dirt. Plus, Dalton may be targeting him in Arrowhead more often than usual. Finally, he had a great game last week. KC is middle-of-the-road vs. TE's.

Woodhead had production last week, but it came off of just one carry. He gets targeted in the pass game just as much as Bell, but my eyes tell me he's a more explosive playmaker than Bell is. But how do you start either guy when they each got just one carry last week?

Bell is probably the more dependable back for 3-4 yards, but that's a hard argument because Woodhead takes his minimal involvement and always ekes out like 7 or more points. Bell - by the way - is the pick of the experts out of the four. Weirdly enough.

Neither of them matter if Gresham gets a TD. If that happens, he will likely outscore both of them by 5 or more points.

Gordon is unstartable against the shutdown DAL passing D.

Gun to my head, I start Gresham.
