Pierre Thomas or Marshawn Lynch WHIR

.5 PPR
It looks like Ingram will be out so Thomas will get goal line touches while Lynch has a tough matchup with Willis back.
Who should I start?
Lynch
or
Thomas

The projected score of the game will be 129.9 to 129.5 so its going to be close.

I'd take Lynch. I'm thinking about starting him because the 49ers are ripe for an upset, on the road in seattle on a short week. Atl unfortunately is tough against the run and Brees is trying to beat Marino's passing record.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=511671

I usually stick with studs, but it's a little discomforting to know know SF hasn't allowed a rushing TD this year.

I always bench RB's playing San Fran. However, Lynch is very active in the Offense.

Mendenhall actually did better than I thought he would against San Fran last week. It was Big Ben thay blew him any chance at getting close to the goal line because of Picks and Fumbles.

I think Lynch will definatly get yardage, but probably not a touchdown.

Thomas wont get yards, but might get a touchdown. That game has WR shootout all over it. NO will def throw the ball a ton against week ATL secondary.

In the end, I go Lynch because I think he has a larger active role in the offense. Look for about 90-100 yards. Probably more than Pierre's 25 yards and a TD.

this one is all about touches. lynch will run all damn day. brees will throw all day. I'd hope lynch can wear down the SF D and break that rushing TD streak. but you know the game will be close and lynch will get 25-30 touches.

I agree, I'd go with Lynch. He's gonna get the ball a lot more.

Thanks for the help

IMO it's all about the touches. I'd go with Lynch. Someone's gotta score on them for the first time this season. Good luck!
