Who to Start Message Board
I wouldnt start Spiller just yet since Fjax is still getting the Lions share of the carries. I have Spiller as well and Im stashing him away until the idiot Bills coaching staff realizes that when they just give the ball to spiller they have a better shot at winning, and stop splitting carries. Id actually go with Ballard and Leshoure. These both will get almost all the carries for each of their teams and Jets D is terrible against the run and Eagles run D isnt much better. At TE Id start Celek, Lions LBs have trouble covering TE's
10 team, PPR
Nicks, Nelson, Lynch, Finley, Doug Martin
Arian Foster, Ben Tate, Brandon Lloyd, Pita
My new team:
WR:Lloyd (HArtline, Moore on bench)
RB:Matthews (Spiller, Ballard, Best, Green-Ellis on bench)
I like LeShoure this week, and as for your 2nd RB slot, i'd probably give Ballard a shot. The Jets are horrendous against the run, and Spiller's carries are far from guaranteed. Spiller may have the higher ceiling, but i'd go with the safer pick here, Ballard.
As for the TEs, i think it completely hinges on the match-up. Few teams give up more fantasy points to opposing TEs than the Lions, and few teams give up less points to opposing TEs than the Eagles. In a vaccum, i'd give Pettigrew the edge, but you gotta go with the better match-up here. Either TE could be startable in a 12-team league, but i think Celek has a good chance of being a top-5 TE this week.
and DEFs are too hard to judge, lol. Both are going up against poor offenses, both could easily be top-10 DEFs this week. That being said, I'd probably lean towards Miami. Bradford is absolutely awful without Amendola. we saw it last year, and we saw it last week, when he only completed 2 passes after Amendola left in the 2nd quarter. Add an injured O-line into the mix, and i don't think St. Louis will score double digits this week.
