right after I posted the above, I see this on Twitter:

@BruceArians - RB Andre Ellington has "severe" hip-pointer. Probably won't practice this week; Hope he can go v #Chiefs; game-day decision

1st Round Pick
Need advice on picking a flex spot. I'm leaning towards Kelvin Benjamin, but with Cam's shoddy play as of late it has me concerned. Would you replace him with either Jarvis Landry or Mike wallace? Thanks.

All bunched together for me... literally.

Perhaps targets table in last 3 weeks will give you an edge? (RED = red zone)

Alfred Morris vs. NY Giants in NY
LeGarrette Blunt vs. Miami in New England
Eddie Lacy vs. Buffalo in Buffalo

Lacy is listed as Questionable due to a bruised hip and Buffalo's defense is really good vs. the run.
QB for Washington is probably RGIII so that might help take some pressure off Morris.
You never know what N.E. is going to do with their RB's so Blunt could be boom or bust.

I think Morris is the only one with a good matchup, I stay far away from NE RB's. Morris also does well with RG3 in, though he did help to lose me my first playoff game last week along with the Saints trio of Brees, Ingram and Stills.

I cut LaGarrette Blount this morning, picked up the St. Louis defense, and benched the Texans defense because I also have Andrew Luck and TY Hilton on my team. So the choice is down to Lacy or Morris. Morris has a better matchup but that team is a train wreck right now and defenses will concentrate on stopping the run until Washington can prove they can throw the ball consistently. If healthy I think Aaron Rodgers can take some of the pressure off of Lacy, Buffalo won't be able to stuff the box but the Buffalo defense is very good and at home. I think it will be a game time decision. If healthy I'll go with Lacy and if not Morris isn't a bad backup plan.

I'm in the semis despite an atrocious RB stable. It's a standard, non PPR league and I need 2 RBs out of the list below. I drafted Tate, Rice, and Ridley, so that explains the mess.

Morris vs NYG
Bell vs MIN
Bernard vs CLE
Stewart vs TB
Murray vs KC

I'm tired of waiting for Morris to have a big game. Bernard's done nothing since coming back. Stewart has shown life and Bell has had 2 good weeks in a row. But Murray is the only one I could see having a big game. Or he could do jack. Stewart and Bell look like the smart picks, but I may need a big game if Rodgers is mortal in Buffalo. Suggestions?

Bell - Should be a good play and he is hot.
Stewart - Been hot the last 2 weeks, primary RB with D'Angelo hurt and with Newton out the Panthers may run more to help out Derek Anderson. Bucs run defense sucks too.
Morris- Has a decent matchup and his primary backup (Helu) is out. The Giants D is not like the Rams so he will be back to his normal production. He did well against them last time.
Bernard - I would sit
Murray - A wildcard, the last time he exploded on the Chiefs with a couple of carries and he did well against the 49ers.

I'd do Bell and Stewart, but I believe Morris vs Stewart will be a wash this week.
