Psa: Don't Start Someone Playing In A Thursday Game In Your Flex Position.

If there's an injury to one of your starters, your option become much more limited. Make sure that WR/RB/TE is in his respective spot.

 

Yep, most experienced FF owners do that but it is good for new FF GMs and not-so-avid FF GMs to be reminded of this fact. :)

Wait, what?? I've never heard of this rule.  Please explain.

 

It is not a rule, it is a good strategy to play by.

 

If you play someone in your FLEX position on a Thursday night game, then if one of your RB or WR starters gets banged up, you don't have the option to manipulate the FLEX position later.

 

So, play the guy you wanted to play in the FLEX position in the regular RB or WR position, and keep the FLEX open should an injury happen to give you options.

Let's say you have Antonio Brown on your team and you start him in your flex spot on a Thursday night game. Then on Friday, Jody Nelson pulls up lame and is out on Sunday. Now you're locked in on having to start another WR in his place (your #3 WR Harry Douglas) when you could have played Antonio Brown as a WR and put a better TE or RB in the flex.

Oh that makes sense.  I will try and pay attention to that.

    • But if they were like me, they only liked one of the corners and wasn't a fan of Turner. So I'd look at it and say there's a fair chance the two guys I really liked that were left in that range would be gone.

    • @ADnum1     FWIW:   I’ve tried to reach out to you via private mail.  Currently your set not accept mail.   Nothing urgent.  Just a heads up. 
    • The great Willie Mays has died at the age of 93. What a great player he was! I wish I could have seen him play. Thankfully, I listened to sports radio in my teens and early 20s and learned from older fans who watched him and many of the great baseball players of his time. Willie Mays was the last living player from that Golden Era of baseball. I learned this week that Carl Erskine of the Dodgers died this year too. I think he was 98 or 99.   Rest in peace Willie and Carl.   https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/3070070/2024/06/18/willie-mays-obituary-giants?source=user-shared-article we lol wp   At times like this, I wish @Jay Kirkand some of the older baseball fans were still posting here. I hope they are all doing well.
    • Best wishes, Mr. I   Hoping for many more years of your leadership.  The Colts need you at the top.    One day at a time.   Hope to see you soon!
