Week 4 – Start or Sit – Kendall Wright, Robert Meachem, or Dexter McCluster?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 29th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I need to decide who to start in my flex spot for a standard scoring league.

Kendall Wright @ HOU
Robert Meachem @ KC
Dexter McCluster vs. SD

Or do I drop one of those guys to pick up Nate Burleson vs. MIN, but I’m limited to 12 add/drops for the year and already used 3.

Answer:

I would go with Robert Meachem, who has a pretty favorable matchup against the Chiefs. He’s also a deep ball threat, so maybe this week is the week that he cashes in that 40-yard TD to put your team over the top.

Kendall Wright has the toughest matchup against Texans defense that doesn’t give up a whole lot of points.

Dexter McCluster is too inconsistent for me to put in my starting lineup. I think you go Meachem here.…

Week 1 – Flex – Sit or Start – Maurice Jones-Drew or Ronnie Brown?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 4th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which player should I start in my flex in week 1?

I’m in a standard league that has 3 flex spots.

Here are my players: Maurice Jones-Drew, DeAngelo Williams, Ronnie Brown, Kevin Smith, Kendall Wright, Robert Meachem.

I’ve pretty much ¬†locked in DeAngelo Williams and Kevin Smith. I’m wondering who should start in the last spot.

Answer:

Expect MJD’s carries to be limited this week against the Vikings. The guy ended his holdout just a few days ago and may not even play. If he plays, I expect Rashad Jennings to get the majority of the work with MJD getting just a few carries. With MJD’s carries limited, I wouldn’t trust him in my starting roster.

I really like DeAngelo Williams this week. Tampa Bay’s defense ranked 32nd against the run last season and Jonathan Stewart is still recovering from a sprained ankle that he suffered in the preseason. DeAngelo Williams is going to have a monster game.

Kevin Smith is the other no brainer with Michael Leshoure suspended and Jahvid Best on the PUP. Kevin Smith will be getting all of the carries for the Lions against a Rams defense that is very poor against the run. I’m expecting a monster game from DeAngelo.

In the last spot, I am between Ronnie Brown and Robert Meachem. Check on the status of Ryan Matthews. He may have to sit week 1 out due to his broken collarbone. If Matthews is a scratch in week 1, Ronnie Brown is your man. If Ryan Matthews is set to start, I would take a shot on Robert Meachem and hope that he burns the Raiders with the deep ball from Philip Rivers. I need to see what Kendall Wright is all about …

Week 6 – Flex Spot – Braylon Edwards or Earnest Graham?

Question by Bear Down: Week 6 Sit/Start: Flex Spot?

Who should I start in my flex slot for week 6?

Braylon Edwards vs. NYG
Earnest Graham vs. TB

Both obviously have their flaws. Edwards has sucked and so has Derek Anderson for that matter which doesn’t help. I hesitate to start him and see if he finally has a good week vs. a solid Giants defense.¬†And Graham is splitting carries with Dunn and is playing a very solid run defense in Carolina.

I also have Tim Hightower, Robert Meachem, and Steve Breaston but I’m thinking either Edwards or Graham would be better options but let me know if you think Breaston will break out in Boldin’s absence or something like that. So I’m in a dilemma and your opinions are appreciated.

Best answer:

I would definitely go with Breaston since Boldin is out. As far as Graham and Dunn splitting carries, Graham gets them in the redzone so he can easily get 12-14 fantasy points as long as the Bucs use him near the goal line. Good luck this week.
