E. Graham or R. Torain (PPR league) WHIR!!!

Postby enasnidx » Fri Oct 14, 2011 2:14 pm

Who should I put at FLEX this week: Earnest Graham or Ryan Torain?

I'm torn because Graham appears to be a guaranteed start and should get the bulk of the carries plus a handful of receptions; Torain should be the feature back and he is going against the worst run D in the league, but you just never know w/ Shanny.

In a ppr league I would go with Graham, like you said he's guaranteed to get the majority of the workload and could end up with a goaline td or two. Torain has more potential then Graham but who knows how Shanny will divide the workload.

I'd usually go with the safer play in Graham because he should be pretty much an every down back and even if behind will catch balls. But Torain does have potential, medium risk/high reward as opposed to low risk/med reward in graham. I'm a risk taker so I'd go Torain. Hell I think you just convinced me to start Torain over Sproles. :)
