Pick one! WHIR

Postby iLoveTD's » Sat Nov 24, 2012 9:21 pm

Please help pick my flex spot. I have to win the week and am already in a very close matchup.

James Jones vs NYG (like his matchup and good td threat)
Vick Ballard vs Bills (great matchup but doesn't get goal line work)
Jacquizz Rogers vs Tampa (been pretty consistent in PPR getting around 10-11 points)

This is a tough one.

James Jones vs NYG (Jennings is back which hurts Jones)
Vick Ballard vs Bills (Splitting time with Brown and Carter)
Jacquizz Rogers vs Tampa (Behind Turner, Buc's have a tough D)

Jones is the biggest risk or gain.

I'd go with Ballard since Buffalo can't stop the run, but it's really a coin flip for them all

I'd go with Jones(Jennings isn't a sure starter yet & will be limited if he plays)

I'd go with Jones? Jennings is likely to be severely limited or possibly inactive. If ur not feeling that then go with Ballard over jaquizz. I have jaquizz as well and although he has been consistent in terms of small production he has yet to break out for a meaningful game.

Help please

Quizz isn't even in the conversation.

This is a really tough one.
On the one hand, Jones' targets have fallen off as of late (only 4 last week!), and with Jordy back in the mix, he'll only be in snaps with 3 wide-out snaps. But with the Packers, that's like every other down practically. The targets are of concern, but what is favorable is his probably match-up against Prince Amukamara. Jones is only an inch taller, but Prince (and the entire NYG secondary) have shown themselves burnable on a regular basis as of late. Jones may be down on targets, but he's a touchdown scorer.

Ballard seems to have a good matchup on paper, but there are variables to look out for. For example, Delone Carter has been getting the goal-line carries in Indy. Also, Donald Brown is healthy; and although it seems Vick has the starting gig, you never know if last week's featuring of Ballard was due to Donald's weak knee or a true demotion.

I wouldn't feel completely comfortable with either, but if I would have to choose I would go for James Jones against a terrible Giants pass coverage. A probably shootout between Eli and A Rod in primetime, I'd say Cobb, Jordy, and James all get into the end-zone.

Good luck.
