Pick One--Michael Thomas or Clyde Edwards Helaire

PPR format. Need a flex option. Current starters are:

Fornette and Henry

AJ Brown, Mike Williams

Thomas OR Edwards Helaire


I was about to say “of course Michael Thomas”, but this is indeed tricker than I had thought. CEH has a nice matchup that could end up in another shootout, and while Jerick McKinnon looks like the pass catching back in KC, CEH might see some red zone opportunities once again.

Michael Thomas looked rock solid last week, but has a much more difficult matchup ahead against Tampa Bay.

I would probably go with CEH, simply because that game promises more scoring opportunities. But it’s a close call.

Yeah, I’d go CEH too. Michael Thomas waited until the final drive of the game to get 70% of his Week 1 fantasy points, while CEH is an integral part of the Chiefs’ new scatterpass offense (at least as long as the game is in question).
