Ray Rice or LeSean McCoy?

Postby Tireur » Tue Aug 23, 2011 4:31 pm

Okay so I'm in a 12 team keeper league. I finished last, last year, and thus given the first pick. After everyone picked their keepers, I'm left with the decision of taking one of these two guys.

1 full point per reception
6 points per rushing and catching touchdown
1 extra point for a TD rush of 50+ yards
2 points per 200+ yards rushing and or receiving per game.

So based on that:
Ray Rice scored 276.9 points last year (Projected by ESPN to score 306.7)
LeSean McCoy scored 298.2 (Projected to score 313.9)

Also up for consideration is Roddy White (318.2 last year / 294.5 projected)
Maurice Jones Drew
Larry Fitz
Peyton Hillis
Hakeem Nicks
Every Quarterback is available too. However we have -2 points per Sack.

I think you take Rice. The Eagles have so many options already, not to mention a second RB in Vick at all times. Rice tends to get plenty of looks and has historically done well in PPR leagues. Plus, I especially like him this year because of the addition of Vonta Leach. I've read on other threads that people are considering taking him #1.

I'd go Rice, I think this really is his year. This coming from a McCoy owner.

McCoy is an absolute beast in PPR, but so is Rice. I have Rice as my number 1 in PPR leagues, I would definitely go with him.

Go with Rice. Hes got a better Oline, possibly the games best FB in Leech, and McGahee is finally gone which will let Rice get more goal line looks

Urine Trouble League 6-7 (6th seed boooya!!!)

I've got the same issue although I'm not in a PPR league.

I'm still 50/50 between the 2 right now - don't draft for another week.
Most of the people replied in my post to picking RICE.

Thanks for the replies. Think rice will be the front runner. Draft isn't until september 4. We shall see if anything else happens in the mean time.

I have Rice ranked a spot higher than McCoy (5 and 6), but I have seen some sites have him as high as #2 overall now that McGahee is gone and the addition of a new FB. He's the choice for me.
