Flex help Sutton?

I need to start 1 RB and 1 Flex and I’m really torn on who to start.

.5 PPR
Joe Mixon @ LAC (18 Opponent Rank)
Gus Edwards @ KC (31 OPRK)
Jaylen Samuels @ OAK (23 OPRK)
Courtland Sutton @ SF (27 OPRK)

  • Mixon worries me with injury and overall Bengals offense
  • Gus in theory has a great matchup but they don’t use him in the passing game but the Ravens have been going very run+def heavy play.
  • Sutton with Sanders out feels like he should be a target machine but they’re coming from Keenum and might be able to just run the ball all day
  • Samuels seems like a must start but not sure how the split will go with Ridley


Probably Sutton. They can’t run the whole game. Passes have to go somewhere. Gus, Dixon is a much better RB. He’s going to lose that job more this game and next week likely for good.

Mixon likely ok floor. Samuels, not the time to start experimenting unless desperate.

I’d go Sutton and Mixon but I don’t see any of your options killing it.

Am I overly worried about Mixon then? The fact that he was already injured this season and this foot thing makes me worry about his floor a bit
