FLEX ??? Hillman or Blackmon? WHIR

Postby DuhToi » Thu Nov 22, 2012 11:53 am

Trying to decide who to start in my FLEX spot: Ronnie Hillman or Justin Blackmon. Standard scoring league, no PPR. I think Hillman will probably be getting upwards of 20 touches against a horrid Chiefs team, as the Donkeys will probably be up big all game. However, the chemistry shown between Blackmon and Henne last week can't be ignored. Thoughts?

Post a link to yours and I'll check it out.

Both have favorable match ups. I would actually go with Blackmon. The matchup is slightly favorable, and although RB > WR in flex most times, I don't think Hillman has the value everyone thinks he does. Like I said in my Week 12 Pick Six Waiver Wire article, the guy only averages 3.4 YPC. On the other hand, Blackmon has a Q he is comfortable with and who targets him. Blackmon goes off against the Titans this weekend. Finally, Hillman is smaller than McGahee - Ball and Mareno will see touches. Go with Justin this week; he proved himself last week by far. Wait to see how Hillman does.
