Better fantasy year? Knowshon Moreno or Beanie Wells?

I have to keep one of these guys and I am leaning toward Wells but both are promising.
Is it a PPR league?

I considered keeping Wells in a league, but Tim Hightower scared me off.
i'd take wells regardless of Hightower. I just think Wells is the better back and will get more goal line carries. Plus I just don't trust anything Denver is doing and wasn't that high on Moreno

Moreno. Check out the stats last season - if Moreno hadn't hit the rookie wall - he would have easily reached 1100 yards. He still had 7 TDs after being injured for most of the Pre-season and playing injured in the first 2-3 weeks.

If it's a PPR league - it's not even close. Moreno grabbed almost 30 catches last season. With Marshall gone, I am expecting at least 45 catches from him.

Don't think you can go wrong with either of them. Wouldn't mind either as my RB2. Either one of them could blow up. I think the safest pick is Knowshon and Beanie IMO has the biggest BOOM potential. So it all depends on if you're a floor person or a ceiling person. Moreno higher floor, Wells higher ceiling IMO.

Beanie easily.

Wells didn't become a staple of the Cardinals offense until midway through the season, and he still finished with the same amount of rushing TD's as Moreno, and only 150 less yards.


Wells becomes extremely important for Whisenhunt and company, because Leinart sucks.

I think that Beanie Wells is a much safer pick than Moreno.

Josh McDaniels falls in and out of love with players quick, and he loves to trade away productive players.

Yep. And Moreno just "popped" his hamstring. Beware of hamstring injuries!!!!
In PPR, I like Hightower more than Wells.

It's ppr but not until after 5 receptions.
I just think Moreno is a little too injury prone. He seems to keep getting banged up. Wells is my vote.

How Ironic!
