WHIR - Pick 2 - Wells, Hightower, Sproles, Bradshaw

Postby Vandy263 » Sun Sep 25, 2011 7:53 am

PPR format. I'm leaning toward Wells and Hightower, but Wells is questionable and I don't want to be left out in the cold. If i go Wells and Hightower and Wells gets scratched, I'll have to go with Dwayne Bowe in the flex position.

Wells (Q) vs Seattle
Hightower vs Dallas
Bradshaw vs Philly
Sproles vs Texans

Help!!! WHIR - leave link

I would say Hightower and Bradshaw ... I do not think Wells plays up to standards today, any time a RB has an issue with Hamstrings all week it's almost certain they get a little rest on sundays.

if you leave him in and he get's scratched you have to play Bowe, and KC is looking absolutely horrible right now.

Considering the fact that Wells is listed as questionable, why not go with Hightower and Bradshaw? Bowe is simply out of the question when you have RB's like that. The RB committee for the Saints makes Sproles a risky start throughout, although he is having a better season than Ingram and Thomas.

I'm in the exact same boat except I don't have Beanie.

I'm going Hightower and Sproles. Bradshaw looks like he has a good matchup on paper but he has never had a good game @ philly so I'm sitting him in 2 leagues. The Giant offense has not looked good and they have a lot of key injurys at WR so I think Phlly will be loading up on the run and relying on their stud corners to shutdown Eli and the depleted WR corp....could bite me in the ass but o well.

HIghtower is shakey with Helu getting all the work in the second half but you never really know whats going on in the rat's head so I'm affraid the first time I bench him is the game he blows up for 2 scores and he should still be getting the goaline work.

Sproles is really underated in that NO offense hes getting 9-10 targets plus a few carries every week and redzone work so I'm ridding him in a highscoring offense till I see otherwise.

I'm gonna bump this and try to hijack your thread a bit. I have the same question except I have Tate instead of Wells this week. I thought the comparison might still be useful

Right now i have Tate and Bradshaw in and am really thinking about Sproles in Bradshaws spot. Something about that NO offense makes me really nervous about playing him though.

You have to go Tate here. With foster out, he's the only game in town. I've all but ruled sproles out. Right now I'm running with Bradshaw and have Hightower in. Will get complicated around 2:30 when they announce for Wells
