    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.

    I'm confused.....No flex would make the RB LESS important.

    correct. and considering so many more teams are going 2+ RBs nowadays, that's a bigger decision than ever in fantasy.</P>

    Here's my assessment..........Good players don't like the flex. Marginal players like that crutch.

    Matt's point - Flex = 3 RB's for everyone all the time.
    My Point - Flex = more options for everyone every week.

    and while I may have said something to the effect of "you know you are playing in a deep league when you play X Receiver" that is completely separate from whether flex is involved or not...they really have nothing to do with each other, you can play a deep league with flex or without.

    Yes but the best players thrive with fewer options. It requires more knowledge and gamesmanship.

    Fewer options makes it simpler, I like having to choose between the 60th best WR and 65th best RB for my flex depending on the match ups instead of being forced to just put the 60th best WR in because there isn't a flex.

    limited options on "good" players because of more TEAMS makes a league more difficult, allowing the team roster settings to make the choice for you isn't making the league more difficult...it's making it simpler.
