Sorry I don't understand. This is a must win or Denver risks losing the first round bye. Sitting players isn't in the cards (with the exception of injured players like Orange Julius, Juwan and, possibly, Hillman to help get them healthy for the playoffs). Play your best players. Don't overthink it.

Anderson is an oddity. Second string back on a mediocre Cal team. Until this season he last had a starting role in his sophomore year at Cal and for good reason: poor vision, mediocre burst and power and significant passing game deficiencies. He has improved his game significantly and had the benefit of the marginal Montee Ball failing to improve. Hillman has superior skills but size will always limit Hillman's usage.
I won't reach for Anderson and others likely will. It will be interesting to see if the Broncos use a mid round pick for another back. Thompson has limited potential and Ball, despite good size and power, seems to have the chronic Wisconsin back lack of vision.

I dislike both. The Lions have a horrible matchup and have played softer lately. Atlanta has the advantage of both a horrible matchup and a horrible defense. Look elsewhere.

Behind by 50-60 all day. Now after Wilson I'm down 9.5 with Anderson tomorrow night. Maybe this will be a double win season. Unreal luck.

2 big games, but his upside has been limited by being WR4 on a team with high octane weapons. The theory is no Hilton, limited snaps Wayne plus the poor Dallas pass D= big Moncrief upside. I prefer Moncrief over VJax

Edelman plays such a different role that I doubt LaFell's prospects change much. Still, in standard scoring I like LaFell: solid matchup, quality offense. TATE for WR2 in standard. LaFell Jeffery in PPR.

Agreed. Plus I doubt he plays well. Marshall Faulk and T.O. who had the very same injury graphically demonstrated why he doesn't figure to be effective coming back this soon: can't effectively pass block, catch, pass protect, stiff arm or break your fall on being tackled without excruciating pain, and added risk of re injury and fumbling. I'm extraordinarily pleased my opponents in all 3 of my leagues have and are starting Murray without Randle on their benches. We will see.

I would play Joquie over Murray without hesitation. Watch the NFL network and see what Marshall Faulk, TO, et al and others who have had the very same injury say about trying to play through it this soon.

I, too, would play McCoy, but I have no doubt Greg and I are solidly the minority view. There is a huge group who believe Murray can be effective with his broken hand.
