10-team redraft. Normal scoring except PPR and 1 point per 25 return yards. We start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DEF
QB: Roethlisberger, Bradford RB: Chris Johnson, Hillis, Best, Reggie Bush WR: Calvin Johnson, Marshall, Welker, Holmes, Ford TE: Hernandez, Pettigrew K: Gostkowski DEF: Falcons
Picking up Sproles is tempting (especially with PPR and return yardage). Though there are limited options that I see. I could drop Ford, but only having 4 WRs when I have to start 3 feels like running a bit light - plus Ford figures to be involved in the return game (currently listed as #1 for kickoffs and punts), so his value is actually pretty high in this league. It probably comes down to a TE - but I'm unsure which one is actually better, and it would be helpful to see how their teams use them in real games. Or I could do nothing - maybe 5 RBs is overkill in a league where you can only start 2. Though there's something to be said for keeping value out of your opponents hands.
I don't see how you'd start Sproles over your other RBs on any given week (unless you'll have bye week concerns). If you really want him, you can drop Pettigrew. Backup fantasy TEs are/should be a dime a dozen in your league.

Thanks for the help. The question doesn't really matter - while I was debating whether to add Sproles, someone else did it And that's ok ... if I was really enthusiastic about getting him, I would've done it. No doubt Sproles is a great fit for many PPR teams. But this league is so shallow, and the benches so small, that I don't think I can justify carrying any RB who isn't their team's RB1. The waiver wire is full of handcuffs, injuries will happen, and there will be many more chances to get a RB if I so desire. With only 2 starting RBs and already having 4 RB1's who could be PPR gold, I didn't see the need.
However, I just saw another drop that does have seriously thinking - it's a WR this time, and experience with this league has taught me they're much more valuable. If you want to help, check it out: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=495447 As always, I'll help in return.
