    I have a pretty solid team (Eli, Turner, Roddy, Foster, Floyd). My flex position is the week link. I need to play two of these: Ivory, Ochocinco, Tamme, Ajirotutu, James Jones. Any help appreciated. I realize all are going to produce about the same, maybe a coin flip is in order.

    @Pete I would go with Tamme first of all. It doesnt matter who is on the feild, as long as peyton manning is there the receivers will flourish. as seen last week Tamme put up good numbers in his first start in IDK how long-64yds TD. He goes up against a Philly D that allows 200+yds a game so look for him to get you some good numbers. Number two look to Seyi Ajirotutu. I mean its more like a shot in the dark but il be tsking it along with you, im also starting him. Hes playing on a team where there best receivers are out including there top receiver Antonio Gates who is Doubtful for sundays game. He is going up against a team that allows 300 yards a game throught he air, and a QB who will definetly deliver to him. I see him getting over 60 yards and some tds. Your next best option is Ocho but i would go with Jacob Tamme and Ajirotutu.

  3. Sam

    Question, since Woodhead is listed as both a RB and WR, where would he place on this list if used as a WR?

  4. Consigliere

    @Sam:

    I would put him in the low to mid 30′s. The receptions will be there but there is no way to tell how many times he will carry the ball.

    The law firm received a bulk of the carries in the last game although i think that could be a fluke. Either way i wouldnt feel very safe relying on Woodhead to perform as a big time contributor on my team.

    I would expect 3-8 fantasy points so i dont have the highest expectations but for a WR he would get a little extra value bc of the carries

  5. Consigliere

    @Pete:

    I would go with Tamme and ochocinco.

    I have never been big on the one week flier/sleeper guys. I have been burned by it before and there is nothing worse than losing a game bc you over think your starting line up.

    Ochocinco should get 3-5 catches and has a decent chance to score. I think James Jones could be a better option if you are willing to take a little bit of a chance.

    Jones has proven himself to be a solid target and Driver is out this week.

    Ocho is ole reliable, Jones is a risky play but i like it and Ajirotutu is a total shot in the dark. If you want to gamble i would go with Jones. Play it safe with ocho and go crazy with Ajirotutu
