Man this is a tough one. You never know who to expect to be "the guy" in the backfield when it comes to the Redskins. They may say Helu is the starter, but somebody else gets the majority of the touches. So in my opinion it would come down to Decker or Greene. Jets & Patriots game is expected to be a shoot out. So if u feel the Jets can hang with the Pats offensive-wise, then I would go with Greene. In my opinion, Greene is more reliable then Mark Sanchez. As for Decker, i'm not exactly sure what he has done since Tebow took over at QB, nor am I positive on how the Chief's defense is. Odds are though, Tebow will do the usual and use his legs more then his arms. Tough choice here, but I'd go with Greene

Tebow hurts Decker's ppr value although he may get lucky and catch another td pass. I want to say start Helu but nobody really knows what to expect out of him this week especially when you consider Shanny's history with backs. With all that being said I'd go with Greene the jets are a run first team that are going to look to manage the clock against a potentially explosive offense in NE.

Well PPR I think you and I both know the answer. How can you ignore Helu and his 14 catches last week. Im not saying it will happen again but there is a good chance at 7-8 I would say.

I think you go with Helu. With Grossman back under center the D will at least have to consider that the skins may be passing the ball, so more lanes should open up for him. Plus he's shown he can catch the ball

Thanks for the help

It's a tough call. I agree Helu's a gamble because of the way they use RB's-but I'd still put him in. Good Luck.

Tough. I would say not Green. Jets are going to have to throw.

Problem is Decker's production has been limited (Tebow), but he has caught a TD pass the last two days. If a WR is going to score on that team it is probably him. Who knows if Helu will catch close that many passes in his second game, but I'm guessing he won't go from 14 to zero.

I would play Decker conservatively, or maybe play Helu (with more upside and risk) if you feel you need a lot of points out of that position to win today and you are willing to take a risk.

thanks for the help

i think Helu has the most upside but you never know with Shanahan, Shanahanigans could happen here. But I would go Helu. I don't like greene and I don't trust Tebow

hope this helps thanks for helping with mine

Especially in a PPR - Helu is your man.

Decker's value comes from the potential of hitting paydirt - he's a three or four catch kind of guy with Tebow under center. Shonn Greene has been killing fantasy owners for two seasons now. I agree that the Jets will have to air it out against NE ... and he isn't that reliable of a pass catcher.

Take a look at mine?
