Final week help-- Lafell, Rice, or Heyward-Bey

3 posts in this topic

In my league, this is our last week before the playoffs. If I win this week, coupled with two other team's losses, I'm in.....ourr division is entirely up in the air, that's how tight it is. I've got my team pretty much laid out but I'm trying to put in the best option at flex right now and can't decide between our own LaFell (@KC), Sidney Rice (@Chi) or DH-B (vs. Cle). Any insight sans homerism....haha.

Do you have any rb options for the flex?

BLaf has the best chance of scoring a decent amount of yards and a TD, while someone like DHB could just blow up and have a huge game.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
