Sports Fantasy Leagues/Who to Start in Fantasy Football


Hi George,

I'm not sure who to start with my flex option. This league is not Points per reception league. These are my options:

(RB)Ryan Matthews at home vs HOU.
(RB)Eddy Lacy at SF.
(WR)TY Hilton at home vs OAK.
(RB)Ben Tate at SD.
(WR)Kenbrell Thompkins at BUF.

Thanks for your time and opinion.

Hi Dan,

This is a tough situation for you because the favorable #1 backs are playing brutal Run Defenses.

I would take a shot with Lacy who is the clear #1 back in GB, just because it will be a close game and they will need to run as much as pass and he'll have a chance of scoring.

Ben Tates match up is great but he is not a #1 back so you are taking a big change on pay dirt.

Good Luck!
