Wait on Thielen or start Gibson

Here’s my conundrum, I have Thielen, Kupp, and Ridley. In that league, I have Gibson, Henry, and Jacobs. With Gibson playing on Thursday, do I commit to playing him or just hope Thielen plays?

This is a 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 W/R/T flex .5 ppr league.

Is this for the flex?
I would start Gibson, for two reasons:

  1. Assume Thielen won’t start
  2. If he does start, I personally would start him over Kupp because I like his usage more than Kupp’s

So Gibson in the “flex”, Henry/Jacobs in the RB and Thielen (Kupp)/Ridley in the WR

I agree. The match up is dicey for Kupp. I like solid running backs over receivers as well. A solid running back gives you a better floor with break out potential, i.e. Gibson.
