Flex Help: Jordy Nelson, Rashad Jennings, Beanie Wells , Darren McFadden
Jordy seems like the clear cut answer but Greg Jennings is coming back. Who should I start at flex.

    First, let me say that if this is a PPR league, then stop reading and start Nelson. If its standard, then....

    Its either Nelson or Wells. Jennings sucks ferociously and McFadden is coming off an injury, is a notoriously slow healer, and will be the backup to Reece (at least to start the game). With the options you have, you defintely can afford to wait to see what DMC looks like.

    Jennings sucks so bad. Sorry. Had to mention it again. Its a disgrace how bad he was with MJD out. And he had some awesome matchups in that time. His matchup this week is nice, but he hasn't taken advantage of it yet, so why this week. Someone in my league is starting McFadden over Jennings this week. And the Wells owner passed up the chance to add Jennings.

    Okay....Nelson vs Wells. Beanie's matchup is nice. Thats really the only reason to consider him here. His team sucks. His QB (and thus, his passing game) sucks, and his OL is so, so bad.

    On the other hand, Rodgers and Nelson ALWAYS follow up bad games with great games. And long TD aside (which went a long way in helping me win my game), Nelson had a bad game. He had 2 catches. The long TD was blown coverage. Nelson is also at home, where he usually dominates.

    As for Jennings coming back, it didn't hurt Nelson's production last year. Here's what happens....Jennings operates out of the slot mostly. This draws a safety in, leaving Nelson in one on one coverage. A QB as good as Rodgers doesn't miss that when it happens. Now, with Cobb around, Jennings will probably stay outside most of the time. So now, defenses have to decide to put that safety on Cobb, or shade him to Jennings side to help out there. (the other safety has to cover Finley). Again, leaving Nelson in one on one coverage.

    My point? Dont fear Jennings return. Nelson is a stud. Beanie is....um....not a stud.

    Good luck

    Jennings will help Jordy get single coverage. I am starting him with confidence.
