Nah, You need Rivers especially with the ability to put QB's in at flex. I'm guessing that is why your leaguemate wants Rivers so bad. I think you should be trying to get another QB.
Johnny Ringo: All right, 'lunger'. Let's do it.

Doc -

Could you do me a favor and explain why you feel so strongly that I should use a QB at my flex position? As opposed to say another RB or WR. I've included my league's offensive scoring rules to help you understand my league.

Pa2P - Passing Two-point Conversion 2 points
PaInt - Passing Interception -.5 points
PaTD - Passing TD 4 points
PaYd - Passing Yards 0+ PaYds = 1 point for every 25 PaYds
Plus a 5 point bonus @ 400+ PaYd
Re2P - Receiving Two-point Conversion 2 points
ReTD - Receiving TD 6 points
ReYd - Receiving Yards 0+ ReYds = 1 point for every 10 ReYds
Plus a 5 point bonus @ 200+ ReYd
Recpt - Reception 1 point
Ru2P - Rushing Two-point Conversion 2 points
RuTD - Rushing TD 6 points
RuYd - Rushing Yards 0+ RuYds = 1 point for every 10 RuYds
H2H, 1 PPR LEAGUE

6 pts per rush/catch TD, 1 pt per 10 yards rush/receiving, 4 pts per pass TD, 1 pt per 25 yards passing. -0.5 per INT/Fble.

QB - FAVRE
RB - RICE
RB - MORENO
WR - MARSHALL
WR - JENNINGS
WR - NICKS
TE - CELEK
K - FEELY
D - BENGALS
FLEX - BRADSHAW OR V. YOUNG

That scoring does even things out a bit. The good thing about QB's is they touch the ball every time! Well, except for the wildcat! In your situation now Benson is better in the flex than Favre. But you do need to keep a hold of Rivers. Favre just isn't going to get enough work with AP around.

If your league allows you to put a QB at a flex position then you simply have to start a QB there. Any QB in the top 20 is going to produce your 3rd best RB/WR.

If I were you I would move Portis/Favre for the best QB you can get -- especially in any league that rewards catches with points.

Youth -

Does that mean you think C. Benson is solid enough as my #2 RB?
