Start Sproles and Pierre...Am I Crazy?

Postby FattyMcButterPants » Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:15 pm

My RB's are not too good, and I honestly have a strong dislike for Knowshon Moreno....That being said, would starting Pierre Thomas AND Darren Sproles against the Bears be a bad idea? I feel like I don't really have any other quality options (Maybe Julio Jones on a big stage could be nice?).

Let me know, thanks! WHIR!!!!! Leave a Link

I'd take Julio Jones and hope that he gets a lot of looks with the defense keying on Roddy White.
Between Pierre and Sproles you'll probably get productive stats out of one of them, but there's a real chance that the other will lay a dud...I seriously doubt that both of them are going to put up 70 and a TD (but hey, I guess it's possible).
Moreno's injury scares me too much to consider starting him at the moment.

As for Sproles/Thomas...I think I'd take Sproles if you get 1 PPR, but Thomas otherwise.
