Trying to figure out what to do as my RB2 and flex spot with Eddie Lacy likely out for this week in a PPR league.
Right now this is how I have my roster...
RB Doug Martin
RB Ahmad Bradshaw vs SF
WR Dez Bryant
WR Julio Jones
TE Jarred Cook
FLEX Ben Tate vs BAL
K Phil Dawson
Brian Hartline vs ATL
Eddie Royal vs CIN
Justin Blackmon SUS
Ben Tate has been averging a whopping 8.7 yards a carry and has looked like the better back in Houston but the problem is he has never seen over 9 carries so far. He is facing a Baltimore defense that has been pretty good against the run. I am considering starting Royal but I just do not think he will have the same type of game success he has been having the prior two weeks. Ahmad Bradshaw on the other hand is going to be facing a tough SF defense but I think he could get involved in the passing game. I am thinking about proposing a trade for David Wilson and shipping Bradshaw. It would be a risky trade but the question is will Bradshaw be healthy by seasons end? What would you guys consider. This is just what is going through my mind right now.
May want to start Hartline. Just going by matchups.
Atlantas secondary is hurting and they will have whoever there top guy is on Wallace so Hartline could see a lot of targets.
Meanwhile, Royal has been amazing but he will matched up vs Leon Hall in Cincy who is an elite corner.
I'd say its a coin flip between Hartline and Tate - maybe because its PPR you go Hartline - I have no clue thats a tough one. Go with your gut.
