Sproles or Torain??

Postby ogaley » Thu Oct 13, 2011 6:12 pm

I've been riding Sproles ever since Jamal Charles went down and he has treated me well. Should I sit him for Torain this week or stick with Sproles? I think Torain has a higher ceiling just having trouble figuring out the risk of him being Shannahaned...

Yeah I would play Sproles too. It would be just like Shanahan to watch Torain go out and fumble on the first drive and bench him for Helu for the rest of the game.

There are reasons people avoid Shanny's RB's people. Hes NOTORIOUS for stuff like this.

Go with Sproles. Shanahan still has not decided on a RB. As soon as your start Torain, Helu will get all of the carries. :-t

Hightower/Helu/Torain could all either be studs or busts any given week, no way to predict at this point in the season unfortunately. Sproles definitely.

help out?

I'm gambling and riding Torain. He impressed Shanny - not that this means much in FF. Torain is my choice here, bucking the trend!

Torain has potential to tear stuff up, but he's a gamble.

The safer and wiser choice in my opinion is definitely Sproles. Torain is nice and all, but with Shanny RBs you just never know what will happen, specially considering that it seems Hightower, Helu and Torain take turns.
