Start Malcolm Brown with Akers out?

Would you guys start him if you’ve got no flex for this week?

I couldnt personally put trust in a guy coming off surgery to his pinky finger to handle the ball.
But please elaborate on “no flex” theres gotta be someone on your bench or waivers you could throw in as a desperation play

He’s not an awful play, I am staying away generally though. Even with Akers out the backfield is super unclear two weeks in.
