Alfred Morris or CJ Spiller

Postby Rufio » Thu Sep 13, 2012 12:49 am

I'm guessing I should be afraid of keeping morris. Just picked him up on WW and figured i'm going to get the best value out of him by trading to spiller right now. What do you guys think?

To me, they're in similar situations. It depends on how long Jackson is out. 2-4 weeks, or longer I'd guess. So Spiller has the starting job for the time being, and maybe for the year.

Morris is going to start in the same time frame, in my opinion. I know Shanahan and his rotating backfield are a concern, but if he keeps putting Griffin in Shotgun and Pistol, I think he makes the most of his carries when the linebackers don't know what to do on a given play.

So, essentially, it's almost a toss up. Personally, I'd go with Morris. I think he'll be the most consistent based on his team's strategy. Spiller had a hellava first game, but I don't think Buffalo has enough weapons and that he'll be keyed in on more plays then Morris.

Also, roster would help in this situation.

stick with morris. you have a pretty solid group with guys like brees and mcfadden and welker who all will give ya good points. morris will be pretty reliable point wise unless something totally changes (which with shanahan i cant say is out o the question) but there are far less questions with the morris situation than with spiller

Thanks. What do you think about Scott Chandler over Fred Davis this week? Chandler facing a horrible KC defense that ate it at the hands of kolb :P. I feel like Chandler is going to get more red zone targets and targets in general.

tough call,id lean toward Chandler for the reasons you said and because of the injury to Nelson. they will have to find ways to make up for nelson and chandler is a solid option

Davis is clearly the better te. We just don't know how they will use him. Chandler is more of a blocking te. I would prob go with Davis another week and see what happens.
