    Need advice with RB! Playoffs this week. PPR League

    So here's my team. PPR league. Team rank in fantasy points allowed in parenthesis.

    QB1: Tony Romo @ Tampa Bay (25)
    RB1: Ray Rice @ San Diego (14)
    RB2: Beanie Wells vs Cleveland (24)
    WR1: Roddy White vs Jacksonville (2)
    WR2: Wes Welker @ Denver (25)
    WR3: Laurent Robinson @ Tampa Bay (15)
    TE1: Vernon Davis vs Pittsburgh (14)
    DST: 49ers vs Pittsburgh (11)
    K: Matt Bryant vs Jacksonville (3)

    So I have favorable match-ups at alot of key positions. Only one skill position player is playing a top 10 defense, and it's Roddy White who I have faith in. But where I do have questions, is at RB. I have the following on my bench:

    Felix Jones @ Tampa Bay (32). Dead last vs the run. Fresh off giving up 4 TD to MJD. But having 3 Cowboys on my team would scare me.

    Maurice Morris @ Oakland (28). Bad vs the run. He was putting up very productive games in PPR lately until the injury. Even though he came back into the game it still scares me.

    I'm leaning towards sticking with Beanie. Ray Rice ran for 200 against them 2 weeks ago. But I'm really thinking hard about Felix Jones. He'll get nearly every touch against a team that just got absolutely torched by MJD. But the thought of starting 3 Cowboys is a bit scary, even though last week all 3 of them put up excellent numbers.

    So what would you guys do?

    • I'd go with Felix like you said he's the only man standing against the worst D in the league. I see what your saying about 3 players from the same team, but they don't cancel each other out, it's not like your starting DEZ Miles and Witten that would fight for the ball. Your starting the QB which actually doesn't really count against you, cuase every time he passes to Jones he'll get points too. Also Wells has been struggling and yes CLE gave up 200 yards, but that was to Rice with a far better team. That CLE/ARZ game is going to be real sloppy, punts galore not to many points scored
