Flex Help

Hello all,

I am in a league with PPR and 100-yard rushing/receiving bonuses. We have a roster format that includes two RB/WR positions (Flex). I have the first Flex spot decided, but the second is not so much. My options at Flex2 (as I call it) are:

RB Felix Jones (vs. NYG)
RB LeSean McCoy (vs. NO)
WR Earl Bennett (vs. PIT)
WR Pierre Garcon (vs. MIA) (yes, I am a fellow Anthony Gonzalez victim)
WR Patrick Crayton (vs. NYG)

Right now I've got Felix slotted to start (simply because I think even with the tough matchup, he will rebound quickly from his opening day disappointment; that and special teams value, I think he could score this week), but if somebody gives me a good reason to start someone else, I'll listen.

Thanks.

I'd stick with Felix. All of the other guys have a good chance of putting up nothing, whereas I think Felix is likely to at least put up some decent numbers. Although I heard he hurt his groin during the TB game so you might want to make sure that isn't going to effect him.

Since it's PPR, I'd go Felix and Bennett. LeSean has a good matchup but the Saints will stack with McNabb out. Pierre is not AGonz and is sharing duties. Crayton is boom or bust. Bennett got a lot of targets last week and plays about where Polamalu used to stand.

I already have Darren McFadden as my first Flex starter, so it's either Felix or Bennett, not both. I've decided that I'm going to go with Felix at this point.
