week 3! flex help.

week 3! flex help.

i have best and peterson in my running back spots and i have four other running backs. Reggie bush? Ben tate? Sproles? or Lynch? which one?

i appreciate the help
I will tell you that I personally am starting Tate in a flex spot this week. Back to back 100 yard games is nothing to turn away from. On Monday morning at Gary Kubiak's presser, he made it sound like Tate is not going anywhere, even when Arian Foster returns healthly. In fact, it sounds a lot like Houston is flirting with Running Back by committee from here on out between the two.

This week though, Foster is still hurt, and the Texans may decide to rest him on gameday a little more than last week. So even if Arian plays, I would still start Tate this week because he will eventually take the workload and finish the game off.
Tate. Absolutely Tate.
Tate. But Sproles is also a good option.
Who do you have starting at RB,


Maybe Sproles and tate starting?

Yeah that
I'd go with Tate as well. Look for the Texans to give the Saints a healthy dose of Tate, especially early on, to try and keep the Saints' offense off the field for as long as possible by controlling the clock.
Assuming it's standard scoring I'd have to say Tate. If you're a PPR league change my vote to Sproles.
