    Bryce Brown or BenJarvus Green-Ellis?

    tough call - any thoughts?

    • I am feeling good about starting LF since I can pretty much not worry about the 8-12 pts he will probably get me.

      I think Brown might be a better upside play but on Thursday night, I'd rather start with a solid performance than roll the dice. Brown has all sorts of things going against him like fumbles and an out of control game whereas LF can only be ineffective if somehow the eagles get up big which isn't likely to happen.

      I think LF is your answer.

    • I just put Brown in and I'm feeling a little better about it.

    • I'm in the same boat here. I got Green-Ellis in right now, but now that McCoy has been ruled out I'm considering putting Brown back in.

      You think about it and Brown can't have as bad of a game as he did last week, but with Foles at QB for Philly they will probably be down score-wise and forced to pass the ball more late in the game meaning Cincy will run it with Green-Ellis. Both defenses are good against the run.

      Player wise Green-Ellis never fumbles and Bryce Brown does. Now I'd say a Bryce Brown TD is more likely than a Green-Ellis TD, but he's also more likely to have a real #$%$ game like last week.

      Let me know what you decide.

      • Brown was lights out the 2 weeks prior to playing the toughest run defense in the league so that being said, do you want a guy that will give you 10 points or someone that will get you, at the very least, 5 points. Brown could win your playoff game singlehandedly with a monster game? BGE has finally come around at the end here with no monster games and Brown has stepped up 2 out of 3 games and is playing for his livelyhood. Philly's rookie QB has done enough with the passing game to keep the defense honest so to me it's a no brainer. Brown all day long.
