PPR league. We start 3 WRs, 2 RBs, and 1 FLEX. This is what I'm thinking, please advise:

WRs - Demaryius Thomas, Danario Alexander, Cecil Shorts

RBs - Foster, Sproles

FLEX - Chris Givens???

On the BENCH: David Wilson, Torrey Smith, Justin Blackmon, James Jones

I'll replace Shorts with Blackmon, if he's still concussed. Torrey Smith has been a disappointment and has Champ Bailey on him (or will Champ be on Boldin?). James Jones has disappeared.

The big question for me is whether to play Givens. I did last week (when Amendola was out) and he didn't get the receptions he did weeks prior (PPR bonus). This week, looks like Amendola comes back. If so, who fills the FLEX? Do I go with the high upside in David Wilson (shootout or blowout, he should still get a bunch of snaps)? Take a chance on Torrey? Jones? Or start Shorts & Blackmon if Shorts is good to go? Just don't know...

BTW, analyzer has the flex filled as: 1) Givens, 2) Blackmon, 3) Torrey Smith, 4) James Jones, 5) David Wilson

Tough call. I like you started Givens last week and managed to get through the first round of the playoffs even with his 3 catches. He did have 10 targets, Bradford just didn't throw the ball very well last week. Givens is still the choice with your other options.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D
