I would still start Lynch since he is the one with the guaranteed touches with proven production. Yes, his yards per carries sucks but he is the goal line back (scored a TD the past 4 games I thiink). K. Smith was a monster but it was against CAR so I would take it with a grain of salt. Looked good though. I would maybe consider K. Smith because of his upside, but not Blount. His floor is too low for to take the risk (ie if they play of behind, Blount is never involved).

Help me please. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=509353

All I can say for certain is not Blount. Not in a PPR league. He will be slain by someone doing a 14 catch Roy Helu impression.

I like Smith, mostly because I feel we are going to see something not unlike a game of Madden tomorrow.

Lynch might have a better floor, but I like Kevin Smith's upside. There isn't a ton of new film on him having been gone for so long and he has a chance to pounce on a biiig stage.

Thanks for the help with mine !

I will rule out Blount in a PPR... Lynch has scored six out of seven.. but hey, as you said, he is still Marshawn Lynch ! The matchup isnt that great either.

If I had a choice, I will run with Kevin SMith... not 3 touchdowns for sure.. but decent yardages, a handful of catches and possibly a TD... hopefully the game turns out as high scoring as it is being hyped.. best of luck!

I'm leaning toward Smith now too. I'm in a similar boat and have Blount in my lineup, but Smith may be fun to play this Thanksgiving.

Thanks for your help!

Def Smith.. I wish I could start him. I missed him on the waiver. He should have a big game along with Nate B.

Lynch is the safe bet, and Smith is the risky play. How badly do you need to win/how good is the other team? I'm going Lynch with the same dillema in one league but I've already clinched the playoffs. I'd say go Lynch, if you're feeling ca-razy go for Smith. Blount is a risk you don't need to take.
