Its better to start a RB over a WR, most of the time.
Stewie: [hitting on some co-eds] I must say, the most recent campus sporting event was quite spectacular.
Co-ed: Aw. Are you in a fraternity, little boy?
Stewie: Not yet, but I'm thinking of joining I Felta Thigh.
I've got a question for you. According to your post you play 2QB, 2WR, 2RB, 1 TE 2FLEX and a K and D? Man that's a lot of starters.
Anyways normally it's better to start a RB in the Flex positions, but it's all about who you've got on your roster. For you obviously Green and Dillon are the RBs, followed by the obvious WR in Holt and Jackson. From there you need to fill those two flex spots. Quite honestly you don't have a lot of depth at RB after Green and Dillon, so in your case Toomer might be a good option for at least one flex spot.
Now between Wheatley, Bettis, and Gordon it's hard to tell. All of them are in a RBBC as of right now (Gordon may break out of it once he learns the system) so it's hard to say who to start out of those guys. I'd say Bettis for the time being (he may get goaline touches.)
If you can though I'd try and trade for another RB. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck!!
RB's are generally always drafted first due to the scarcity of elite backs. There are only a handfull of feature backs inthe NFL with RBBC (running back by committee) taking over on alot of teams in the last year or two. Thus making a player who is going to get 25-30 touches a must have.
Wr's get their points but the difference between the #10 Wr and the #25 Wr is not that drastic.
This year was little odd for me when drafting. with the new crop of unproven RB talent generally going in the seocnd round it is very possible to take a top 5 Wr instead of grabbing your #2 back. If you have a pick in the top 8, you must take one of the RB's... after that it was a gut call for me.
Yeah.. depends on how many good backs you have, or how many good receivers you have. If you have a good extra wr, that will usually put up numbers than the rb you'd throw in the flex, go ahead and use the rb. I'd use rbs tho most of the time If I could
It really comes down to the talent of the players on your team.Even though RB's usually get the flex spot more,you can't start a subpar RB over a decent WR just because he's a RB.Dante Hall is most likely going to have a career year,especially since return yds count in your league.Because you lack depth at RB after Dillon and Green,I would also go with Hall and Toomer in you flex positions.Good Luck.
