The "Who should I start" thread
 
Didn't see this one, so here goes. Try to give as much info as possible

I have 1 flex spot open on my team. Here is who I can choose between:
Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts against Houston Texans (away)
Joseph Addai, RB, Colts against Houston Texans (away)
Ryan Grant, RB, Packers against NO Saints (home)
Percy Harvin, WR, Vikings against SD (away)

I think you have to go with Wayne regardless of if Manning plays. Even if Collins is throwing to him, he should still be the #1 target and get plenty of chances to score points for you. Grant would be my second choice after seeing the Saints run D in preseason.

agreed on Wayne.

I'm on a fantasy football website called fantasysharks.com and I think it's one of the best sources of info out there. There are some good articles, but they've got forums with player news, who should I start, waiver/free agent moves...anything. A lot of information comes from people in the NFL cities so there's a little more in-depth info than I find on some sites.

Not spamming...just letting you all know about a site that's helped me quite a bit in the fantasy football realm.

Oh... It... We... have no response. That was perfect.

Here's my dilemma for a W/R/T flex spot:

Starters:
QB: Matt Ryan (Atl - QB)
RB1: Ray Rice (Bal - RB)
RB2: Michael Turner (Atl - RB)
WR1: Roddy White (Atl - WR)
WR2: Vincent Jackson (SD - WR)
TE: Zach Miller (Sea - TE)
DST: Chargers

Flex:

Marques Colston (NO - WR)
Ben Tate (Hou - RB)
Greg Olsen (Car - TE)
Fred Jackson (Buf - RB)
Reggie Bush (Mia - RB)
LaDainian Tomlinson (NYJ - RB)

I'm leaning towards Reggie Bush, but I'm willing to take suggestions :)

Edit: 1 PPR

PPR? Wayne or Harvin.

Non PPR - Wayne or Grant. Probably Wayne though. Even though our defense was revamped, our corners are still young and can be had.

Again, PPR or no?

I would go with Olsen. Cards gave up 242.6 passing yards per game last season. They lost DRC but gained Patrick Peterson. Also Newton will probably use Olsen as his safety valve alot.

NE is good against the run so Bush isnt that attractive, unless its a PPR league.

Fred Jackson is going @ KC who is middle of the pack against the run.

Bottom line: I would go with Olsen or Jackson if you are afraid of Cam Newton.

Re: The "Who should I start" thread
 
My turn.

League 1: PPR flex: Bush @ NE, Wells vs. CAR, S. Moss, NYG, Britt @ JAX.

League 2: Bradford vs. PHI, Kolb vs. CAR

I would have a hard time keeping Tate out week one. Probably a riskier play but could pay huge dividends. If not Tate I would go with Bush.

League 1: I'd go with either Moss, or Wells. I'd be taking a wait and see approach to see how Britt Gels with hasselback, and I think New Englandwould be a bad matchup for Bush this week.

League 2: Kolb vs. Car. Bradford will be throwing at Nnamdi, DRC, and Asante Samuels

It's 1PPR, so I have Bush in there right now. The concern with Olsen is that he has to compete with Jeremey Shockey for targets, so I'm not sure he will get enough attention. AZ is a crappy defense though, so maybe he is worth it...

I like Wells @ Carolina and Kolb against Carolina. I don't expect either team to have much defense, so it could be a shootout. Fitz is bound to get some TDs against the Panthers.

I still try to figure out my 3d WR - I have Steve Smith (Car), Plaxico Burress and Devin Hester. What do you guys think?

TheDrifter 09-08-2011 08:21 AM

Re: The "Who should I start" thread
 
Okay,

WHO SHOULD I START???

PPR, 1 point per 10 yards, 6 for TDs.

Mark Ingram or Derrick Ward?

Do individual players get return yards?

If not, I'd drop Hester from the conversation. Bears are weirdly devoted to Roy Williams.

Yeah they do get return yards - but not as much points as for receiving yards (I think 10 return yards equal 1 receiving yard).

Re: The "Who should I start" thread
 
My current top three backs are Ray Rice, Rashard Mendenhell, and Darren McFadden. I clearly went RB heavy in my draft. Rice and Mendenhall are my initial starters and McFadden is my flex.

I also drafted Ben Tate to get him out of the hands of the guy who grabbed Foster, but now I have this rather tough problem on my hands. Let's say Foster and Ward both sit against Miami...

Which 3 of the 4 do I start?
Ray Rice @ Tennessee
Rashard Mendenhall vs Seattle
Darren McFadden @ Buffalo
Ben Tate @ Miami

Wow, that is quite a dilemma, but a good one to have. I think you must start Ray Rice and DMC given their production this past week. RR against the Steelers for 30 points means he should do just about as well against the Tits. Tate or Mendenhall...

The Bills allowed 6 YPC against the Chiefs this past week: NFL Team stats

The Dolphins 4.8, but the Pats didn't run much.

I'd go with Tate just for the Texans sake :)

Re: The "Who should I start" thread
 
I have a question regarding WR's. Which three should I start?

Brandon Marshall vs. Houston
A.J. Green @ Denver
Braylon Edwards vs. Dallas
Robert Meachem vs. Chicago
Jacoby Jones @ Miami

I'm thinking of going with Marshall, Meachem & Jones, but I wanted some advice first.
