BYE causing Flex Chaos

Hi everyone, I’m in a .5 PPR 12 man league.

For my flex this week, I can play Buck Allen off of my bench or attempt to pick up any of Richardson, Kupp or Crowder. I have no idea what to do as none of them have a matchup that stands out.

I also face a TE dilemma again this week as choosing between Engram and Brate is difficult. I would like to go Brate but Engram has that upside.

Any opinions would help and I would love to answer any questions you guys might have about this upcoming week!

Thanks guys.
