Carson or Fournette for flex?
Everyone’s predicting this to be Carson’s breakout game against the Colts but I’m having a hard time benching Fournette. Thoughts?

Can't sit Fournette vs Jets.

Eta: Btw, I'm driving the Carson bandwagon too.

Also, Fournette is a top 5 back so far and should continue to have a huge workload. Carson is an unproven back who runs behind the league's worst offensive line. He's poised to breakout into top 20 territory this week, but not in the same discussion as Fournette to this point. How is this even a question?

Because besides his great Week 1 he has been pretty pedestrian if you take away his late TD's in the last two games. I get it that he has played great run defenses the first three weeks and that he gets a ton of opportunities but I was just thinking maybe Carson could be the play since they are playing the Colts at home. And yes I know that the Colts have a better than expected run defense this yr. Maybe I'm just overthinking it.

Why don't you give Chris Carson the same kind of downplay? He's got 11 and 13 points the past two weeks. He's not exactly David Johnson out there.

Fournette will get the touches, and has performed in fantasy all season. His lowest performance is 14 points. And they've been in blowouts on both sides. He's getting run no matter what

You are way over thinking this.

oh I def do. Guess I could have made that point. I was just thinking Carson had the easier game this week. Jaguars are playing on the road this week after playing in London last week. I know I'm overthinking it and I'm just gonna play Fournette this week.

Jags were back in the states by 10 pm last Sunday. There's no jet lag. The jets are the perfect team for their ball control offense to run against

12. It's my biggest money league with several older guys who love taking QB's in the 1st rd. I just sit back and laugh inside. I'm actually 2-1 as I lost last week by 3 points due to the stupid defensive scoring we have in this league. I picked up Cincy's def this week so I should have rectified that issue. They have a great schedule coming up with regards to their defense

Nothing crazy with how your backfield played out in the draft. Adp for each:
Bell early 1st
Fournette late 2nd
Hunt 5th-6th round before injuries made him the clear #1 (2nd-3rd round after)
Carson late round flyer or not drafted

Looking at it now makes it look like robbery considering they all look legit now but it was a very easy combination to get in most 12 team drafts.

And I agree with the poster who said you should trade a RB to land another WR. I'm not opposed to trading Bell to get a top 5 WR either considering your RB depth.
