Standard League Quandary: Blount, Green, or Powell

Start, sit, who to acquit? My QB just lost a finger, wuss, who should I pick up?

Standard League Quandary: Blount, Green, or Powell

Postby ghastlyghost » Sun Oct 14, 2012 5:55 am

After very boldly trading away Jordy Nelson and Darren Sproles for a beleaguered Andre Johnson I'm having a helluva time deciding between Powell, Green & Blount as my flex this week. Starting to maybe regret the trade but it is what it is. I have faith that AJ will play better, just my gut... I was at least fortunate to swipe all three RB's off the wire last week after losing Benson, who is toast (fortunate is a relative term as my RB situation sucks now)--->>> *Roster in signature.

Anyway...

I'm leaning toward Powell as the Bills run D is atrocious at best, even though he is entirely unproven and will "split" carries with Howling. I expect Howling will play more of a Sproles-like role, not to mention he just can't run the ball as it is. I'm just afraid of the even more atrocious Cardinals O-Line even though they are matched up against BUF...

Green is much more of a feature type back but I think his fantasy worthiness will be proved in the following weeks. Starks may get more looks due to experience but he sucks in a Howling kinda-way, and neither likely will do much vs. HOU's stout D

To me, Blount has the most TD vulture appeal but that's about the limit of his appeal. He could end up with more points than the other two with half the carries.


Please give me a definitive back to roll with! I don't want to question myself any further, haha. If you're wrong I won't blame as I've been helped royally by advice from you and it really is a crapshoot :)

Cheers!

Oopha, that is quite the predicament. I'd go Williams/Green/Blount if I were ranking them but the line would be thin. Give Williams a shot.

Williams is code for Powell? ;)

Ha, yeah. Didn't you get your Razzball decoder ring from your box of wheaties this morning?
