I'm also wondering what to do with thomas, but in my case I'm considering starting him over hightower. So I would not hesitate to start him over McCluster. I think McCluster is going to be really inconsistent (perhaps Thomas too) and until he shows me he can actually put up ff points I am not going to play him. Meanwhile Thomas looks to be taking away carries and touchdowns away from bush and might grow into a legitimate fantasy running back.

Thomas all the way. He will get most of the carries in Miami. I wouldn't touch a KC running back with a 10 foot pole.

I wouldn't say inconsistent with Daniel Thomas, he hasn't really shown what he can do yet and he looked great this past weekend. So its not really inconsistency but rather uncertainty. Plus Thomas is playing the browns...which gives him the perfect opportunity to show what he can do. If he doesn't get it done this weekend, I let him ride the pine until he does. But for some reason, this week, I've got a gut feeling that Daniel Thomas is gonna explode (not literally but statistically :-) )

I love Julio but I always go RB for my flex. Only if Julio really starts putting up big games and scoring touchdowns will I consider him over a RB at the flex position.
