Flex Help WHIR

Postby Game » Fri Dec 21, 2012 1:06 pm

Championship game like most of you. 14 teams h2h standard scoring. Please pick one out of the following four players for a flex spot. I really don't feel great about any of my options.

Edit: I just plucked Ingram off the waiver wire would anybody start him over the below options assuming Ivory is out.


D.Alexander vs NYJ - Goose egg last week plus a bad matchup.
T.Smith vs NYG - I like the matchup but may not play and inconsistent
B.Wells vs Chi - Tough matchup and unless the bears turn the ball over in the redzone I don't see him scoring.
B. Gibson vs TB - Pretty good matchup but hard to trust.
M.Ingram vs Dal

I would go with Smith, he has risk but he has the most upside out of the group based on his match-up.

Thx for your help with mine (Ballard)

Wells - you can't trust this guy. Since his return he's avg 2.8 yds / carry. 3 TD's last week is a fluke that will not happen again against the Chicago Bears D. Bench'em

T. Smith - concussion. He still needs to be cleared to play but he does have a favorable matchup against the NYG. Although I just don't know if you can pull the trigger on him. He's only had more than 4 receptions in a game 3 times and two of those games came back in weeks 3 & 4 with the other being respectively in week 12. At this point in the game I want a guy that is going to get the targets and the receptions. I think you bench Smith.

This leaves Alexander and Gibson. This is a TOUGH choice.

Gibson has a great matchup against TB, you couldnt ask for a better matchup. Just a better WR to go against this juicy matchup. He should net out around 60-70 yds + MAYBE a TD. I think you could safely expect 6-13 points out of him.

Alexander on the other hand, has a gross matchup against the NYJ but he's been a stud. Since you survived last week even with Alexander getting a big old goose egg leads me to believe that you have a very solid team otherwise. I really can't see him putting up another 0pt effort this week and I would think at minimum he'll get 60 yards but his ceiling supercedes that of Gibson. He could no doubt put up 20 points for you. In this case, I think he's your Flex starter.

I'd play Smith if he goes because he's the most consistent player you have. If he doesn't go with Gibson, Wells wont get much done and Alexander will probably be covered by Cromartie.

I'd go with Gibson IF Torrey Smith is limited or not playing. I don't like D. Alexander this week because Malcolm FLoyd is out, meaning Alexander gets Cromartie who has been lights out of late. Look how little action Kenny Britt got last week even with Locker throwing the ball all over the field.

Thanks for helping in my thread.

I'd go with Smith if he gets medical clearance, if not, I like RB for a flex spot even tho it's B. Wells against Chi D, Ari defense will pick Cutler at least once, which makes Ari a chance to keep it close in the game, besides they are playing at home.

Good luck.

Brandon Gibson. I'd question D-X, only cuz the Bolts are in disarray right now.
