Flex decisions for week 8
Andy Behrens and Tank Williams run through a few flex options to consider in week 8.
ANDY BEHRENS: It is time, right now, to turn our attention to the flex position and our built to serve picks, brought to you by Ram Trucks. They're redefining what a truck can be and do every day with plenty of power, capability, and durability. Each week, we're picking players that align with these quality traits that can lead your fantasy lineup into a winning position.
I'm going to start with my capability pick, here. And I'm going to go with Tyler Boyd. Tyler Boyd, in his last two games, has seen 15 targets. You want to talk about capability, he's caught 14 of those. He's got a couple of hundred yard games on the season. We've seen him score long touchdowns.
He's tied to a quarterback, in Joe Burrow, who is just absolutely scorching hot right now. They get a matchup this week on Monday Tonight with Cleveland. Cleveland is allowing 7.5 yards per pass attempt. That is among the worst in the league.
And I kind of buried the lead here. Ja'Marr Chase, not going to play in this one. He's got a hip injury that may cost him multiple weeks. That is going to mean additional attention, additional targets for Tyler Boyd. I think he's an easy start in this one, a high end wide receiver two for me. Now, Tank, Russ, talk to me about durability.
TANK WILLIAMS: Oh, yes. Hello guys, Russell here again. D'Onta Foreman, durability, durability, the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage. Durability is earned over time. Countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears. Countless hours of making sure you outwork your opponent, you out work yourself. If aliens really do exist, you out work them, too. That's just how we work.
Was was I talking about again? Oh, D'Onta Foreman, yeah. Chuba Hubbard is out so D'Onta Foreman should get a lot of work in a good match-up against Atlanta. Let's ride. Let's ride. Let's ride.
ANDY BEHRENS: Oh, my pick for power this week is going to be Brian Robinson Junior. Now, I'm not going to make any promises about his efficiency. He hasn't necessarily been the most efficient back. But he's coming off a game with 20 carries and workload matters. It matters in a big way. Brian Robinson is getting fed. He's playing over 50% of the snaps.
Antonio Gibson, kind of a nuisance right now. But J.D. McKissic is not. And Brian Robinson is a guy that they lean on when they get in goal to go situations, when they get inside the five. So I think, Brian Robinson, in any given week moving forward, he's been a great story this year, really good chance to find the end zone. And, again, he is just absolutely getting fed.
He's not going to be much help in a PPR format, right? He's not running a lot of routes, not catching many balls. But man, he has been absolutely bankable around the goal line. And, again, he's just getting a lot of work. We chase workload. Sometimes. This stuff doesn't need to be that hard.
All right, get those guys in your rosters and be sure to check out the entire game changing RAM lineup at ram.com
