Week 7 Roster Advice


#1

When you have an embarrassment of riches it gets harder to make decisions. Recently made a trade to acquire Mixon and Alex Smith, now I’m faced with RB/FLEX questions:

QB: Alex Smith
WR1: Mike Evans
WR2: Michael Thomas
RB1: Lev Bell
RB2: ??
TE: Kelce
FLEX: ??

I need to choose my RB2 and Flex based on the following players:

Delanie Walker
Doug Martin
CJ Anderson
Joe Mixon
Adrian Peterson
Jaron Brown
Nelson Agholor

I subconciously listed those options in my order of preference so I’m leaning towards Martin and Walker but I’m looking for any additional advice.


#2

Should note, its a full PPR league


#3

I think Delanie is banged up. But if healthy I like those 2 guys


#4

Mixon could be a good play this week. I’d probably go with him and Martin, though Martin has a tough matchup. Agholor could be a good play too. Him, Mixon, and Martin would be my top 3 out of those options this week.


#5

I really want to start Mixon. I’m playing against 1 of the 4 other 4-2 teams and I need a win. I think that Martin is the safe play here. There’s nothing safe about playing Delanie Walker, I can be convinced to start someone else in the flex.


#6

I would not flex a TE when you have better options on your bench such as 4 starting RBs who could possibly all get 20+ touches. Walker would be in my bottom 2, he’s banged up and ques for the game. I’d definitely sit Brown too. Agholor has been a sneaky play this year and going against a banged up WAS D. AP would be a definite start for me, Rams are the worst against the run this year and AP is running with a purpose again now that he’s the lead back. And I’d probably lean towards flexing Mixon. Martin has a tough match up & CJ has slowly been losing touches.


#7

I personally lean Mixon and Martin. Anderson is losing touches to booker and charles, Peterson had one good game so I’m unsure if he can continue what he did.


#8

Wow, so many conflicting ideas. I was really hoping everyone would be like “You idiot, it’s obvious to start Player A and Player B”.


#9

I’m actually going to have to tell you to start Ahgolor in the FLEX. As far as RB2, I would take a chance with CJ Anderson, considering he’s playing a banged up chargers d. Doug Martin would also be ideal for a flex later down the road.
