This week i have a dilemma. My options for my flex include derrick henry, Ty Montgomery, and somewhat injured WRs kelvin Benjamin and devante parker. Also for that flex position im actually considering TE austin sefarian jenkins. Am i crazy? Regardless help and advice appreciated.

Hmmm...  I would go with Ty Montgomery.  I do not buy into, at least, all the Aaron Jones hype.  With Hundley now at the helm, I think the Pack is going to want to give him that receiver-type running back to be able to fall back on and dump the ball off to.  That is Montgomery, not Jones.  Also, I think the Packers-Saints game is likely to be high-scoring.  Moreover, the Pack may find themselves having to play catchup (late in the game), in which case those are Montgomery downs.  My second choice would be Henry.  I think Tennessee blows Cleveland out, and they will be running the ball a lot.  With Murray not quite 100%, that likely means a big dose of Henry.  After that, I would go with Parker over Benjamin and Benjamin over Jenkins.  Good luck!

Ironically, I think the emergence of Jones keeps Montgomery on the field...  What do I mean?  The success of Jones gives Montgomery reason to suck it up and stay on the field.  It also gives the Packers less reason to worry about the possible loss of Montgomery to (re-)injury, in perhaps a further irony, especially in light of, and NOT in spite of, the fact that they are headed into a bye week.
 
ALL OF THAT HAVING BEEN SAID, if Murray sits, Henry is your play!  Monitor that situation and hold off on making your decision to the last possible moment!

Well, it looks like at the proverbial end of the day, you did not have any good options, Mansfieldofnightmares,... except for that Sefarian-Jenkins guy.  Looks like you were not that crazy, after all.  Ugh...
 
That said, while, granted, I am just playing armchair coach here, I think the Packers with Hundley under center would be well advised to do a bit more of this...

Hundley needs that quality outlet guy out of the backfield to dump the ball off to.  Jones, while apparently a high-caliber runner, does not seem to be a particularly good receiver.
