I'd drop Ingram for Kevin Smith, and start Smith & Turner week 1.

Dont start AP, he may see a little work in week 1, but I doubt he will get anymore than 10 touches. The Vikes have a more than capable backup in Gerhert and wont be rushing their franchise player back faster than needed, especially with season another rebuilding year. Pickup Smith and start him with Turner for week 1, then keep an eye on AP and his situation and how much he plays week 1.

The rams are going to get slaughtered by kevin smith. Do that even for just this game. I think he did 38 points vs the panthers last year. Not saying that is going to happen again but still...

Danged if I don't have AP too and the decision to play him or not is killing me softly. In this case, I think we need to sit him and go with the best available alternative. If you can get K. Smith, then yes, he's looking like a good play. And let's just hope to heck that AP only gets those 10 touches and doesn't come back like the stud we know he can be.
Thank God for Football Season.

You should drop Ingram and pick up Smith.

However, you should start Turner and Greene.
