They just went 2 and 3 in my dynasty draft. I would go with McCoy but I see such a minute drop off between both. I would keep Thomas. Rice is good, I like him to . But Mcgahee is still there even if he is headed out. Thomass' role is defined. He is in a good offense that does throw a lot but man, the TD's are there for the taking.
I would go with McCoy here.....better reception rate as well!
I would also keep Pierre (although he is already hurt he should be fine for week 1 and he is the legit starter. Rice has also been named the starter and I like him very much as well but he does have McGahee still in the mix and McClain even being the fullback will take some reps as well.
Standard H2H 12 Team 1 Pt PPR, Start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1 FLEX (RB/WR/TE), 1TE, 1K, 1 DEF
3.3 may not be solid at this point but remember their o-line is still gelling after making some huge additions plus he will play the Westbrook role in that offense for at least a few weeks this season when Westbrook gets banged up. Huge upside with McCoy so I would go with him as a back up rb right now. If you need someone to plug in the first couple of weeks though I would go with Brown cause he's already guaranteed carries. Drop Nicks out of those two at this point cause at least you know Bryant will be a starter and productive. Getting Rice for Thomas may not be as bad of a move as it seems, Thomas is already banged up and seems like their may be 3 hands getting carries in NO right now. I like it, especially if it is a ppr league cause Flacco seems to like that check down to Rice when no one else is open.
