Starting flex and RB advice

Postby mnman28 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 7:38 am

I'm in an empire league with standard scoring. Usually I'm a pretty decisive guy when it comes to picking starters, but this week has me in a quandary. I still need to confirm a flex and RB position, and here are my options:

Mikel Leshoure
Joique Bell
Reggie Bush
Dez Bryant

Reggie's been on my bench most of the year due to his underwhelming performance, but he has big-game potential and the Jags run defense is week. So he could have a big day.

Leshoure has been a TD vulture all year but hasn't been performing that well the last 2 games. Bell's carries and receptions are picking up, but he hasn't scored much. If I only started one of them, I'm leaning towards Bell.

Bryant has been a beast recently, but can I trust that to continue when he has a fractured finger?

Who would you start if you were me?

Detroit and Dallas are 4:00 games so that helps.

I remove Leshoure from consideration. I have watched every Detroit game and have not seen anything that special about him. Bell is your option in Detroit.

If Reggie Bush is healthy you plug him in at RB

I play Bryant over Bell if all was well, but Bryant is not well.

Wait until the last possible moment...If Bryant is the dreaded "Game Time Decision" you have your answer.

good luck
