    [quote user="Morehead State"][quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="Morehead State"][quote user="DavenIII"]Yes to Flex
    [/quote] What the hell? The reason I'm anti flex is because I bought YOUR argument that having no flex was better for good players.[/quote]

    I don't know if I ever made that argument lol Matt was always against flex I was always for it.

    I like being able to choose 3RB's or 3WR's each week, Matt has this idea that Fantasy is still about the RB (it used to be) so when you allow flex everyone will choose 3 good RB's....this won't happen but that's what he "thinks" will happen.
    [/quote] I'm confused.....No flex would make the RB LESS important.[/quote]</P>


    </P>


    na makes it more important and it shows in the draft. Everybody tries to get 3 RBs, if u don't have the value then u may not try for 3 RBs. But then everybody reaches on RB depth as well</P>


    [/quote]

    just because people do it doesn't make it the right thing to do Matt.

    WR's and RB's are pretty much equal at this point, if it comes down to it I'm totally going to pick a WR before a RB if we are talking about picking up a #5 WR vs a #10 RB or a #25WR vs a #35RB

    everyone else can rush to get 3 RB's if they want I won't do that because although that used to be the way to go about it, it isn't anymore....even though people still follow the method.

    its what always happens and u'd be stupid not to. Thats why it makes the league less competitive.</P>

      i have to be honest, i think im starting to like the idea of 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 Flex RB/WR/TE, 1 TE best</P>

        The draft is obviously important, but I don't agree it's the most important, to me the most important part is being able to adjust to the injuries that are going to happen during the year, the best draft in the world doesn't mean jack if you lose your starting RB and QB and have no idea who to pick up or trade for afterwards....


        being good at recovering from the unexpected through FA and Trades is more important then setting up your team at the start...because you simple can not control what will happen through out the course of the year...the ability to adapt that's the biggest skill in Fantasy in my opinion.

        only because it made sense, right now WR's and RB's are very similar in terms of points scored, you want to ignore good WR's to get worse RB's just because of conventional wisdom....go ahead, I won't though.

          you'd be stupid to pick a lower value RB instead of a higher value WR....Value is always where it's at in the draft...look at "Reese" :P

          the 3 RB theory was key back in the day when every team had one work horse....that's not the case anymore and thus the theory no longer holds true.

            [quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="Morehead State"]Flex makes it easier. You almost always start a RB over a WR. A couple years ago I had Addai as a great flex guy. I just plugged him in every week. Then I had LT two years ago...same thing. Not much to decide really.[/quote]

            every year the NFL is becoming more and more Pass Heavy, WR's vs RB's is pretty much equal at this point....especially when you are talking about 3rd options.
            [/quote]</p>



            which is exactly why a 2 WR flex league would make it a RB league, because everybody would go RB heavy because there is so much depth at WR to plug in 2 starters a week</p>[/quote]

            I disagree, because it's so pass heavy the starting WR's for teams are now scoring as many if not more fantasy points then the starting RB's....even more no that all the teams are splitting RB carries.

              so u think being able to adjust to injuries with the flex is a harder thing to do? I just don't see how thats possible at all.</P>


              </P>


              Draft is the most important thing, making the decision between an RB3 and WR 2 isn't too hard especially once bye weeks start. </P>


              When would it not make sense to grab 3 RBs if u only have 2 WRs to start?</P>


              You said it yourself that NFL is a passing game so plug and playing 2 WRs wpould be the easiest thing to do. All anybody would do is just not draft 2 WRs soon.</P>


              It doesn't make anything more interesting or tactical, it make you draft 3 RBs if your able to draft 3 RBs that are worth it.</P>


              </P>


              Thats why I like the 3 WR and flex while keeping QB points at 6. I mean people just gotta build however they want</P>

                no you wouldn't because u may not get that WR next round but odds are you'll probably be able to find a comparable WR. Too many receivers out there getting points to just mandatory start ionly 2 WRs.</P>

                        No it's not adaptability is the most important thing.

                        When the WR you could grab is better then Any RB that's currently available? It's almost as though you see flex as Automatic RB start...RB's and WR's score pretty much the same amount of fantasy points now, there is no reason to start a RB over a WR in the Flex....(and vica versa) you should just start(and draft) the one who is the best value.

                        And adding a 3rd one into the Flex instead of a RB also makes sense!

                          #themoreyouknow[/quote]

                          you say that as if it means anything, I picked 3 RB's because they were the best players available at my point in the draft, if there was a better WR available I would have went that way...

                          the point is WR's and RB's are interchangeable....it didn't used to be that way but it is now.

                          Calvin Johnson and and Arian Foster are equal....as far as value, there is no reason to draft 3 RB's immediately whan you could draft 2 WR's and 1 RB and get better players.

                          people only do it because it's conventional wisdom...it makes no sense, you are deciding to vote against the flex because you think there is only way to draft if it is there because of some old conventional wisdom that no longer applies.

                          to be honest I don't care one way or another It just irks me that you are basing your decision off of something that doesn't make any sense.

                            Ok MMB question, 3rd round, Flex League, you have an option of picking.

                            Roy Helu or Mike Wallace

                            who do you pick.

                            I know I'm going with Wallace....but I suppose you would go with Roy Helu because you just "have" to get three RB's **** the fact that Wallace scores more points and will help your team more...he's a receiver so you can't pick him yet right?

                            you are ******ed....and the reason you hate the flex makes no sense...if it made sense I wouldn't care but it makes no sense.

                              yes you would because drafting 3 top flight receivers is better then drafting 2 top flight receivers and 1 mediocre RB.

                              it's almost as if you would reccomend starting a BAD RB in the Flex over a good WR in the flex just because...well it's a running back....which is ******ed...

                              the flex lets you start 3 WR's too if you want...so if the 3 best players you can get are receivers why not get them...why get worse players just because of their positions?
