Depends if its a ppr or not. Non ppr probably Benson and Tate would be your best play here. If it is a ppr I would go with Benson and Thomas due to the Saints always needing to pass due to their terrible defense. Also I would look to get a decent RB in a trade at some point. Don't know what the rest of your team looks like though. Consistent RB's are hard to find...that's why they still win championships.

Little help here too:

Ahmad Bradshaw is probably going to be doubtful for Thursday. Andre Brown might get majority of runs. Im not in a PPR league. Thoughts?

Problem with Brown is that he's nothing special, he's been cut 5-6 times in the last 2 years. Odds are Bradshaw will be out, and Brown may see the majority of the snaps, but Tate is by far more talented. I think Benson looked fine last week and is probably the most obvious of the backs listed. The second is the tough one, PT you never know with, they have Sproles for passing downs and Ingram for goalline. Andre Brown might be an okay option if we know Bradshaw is sitting, but I wouldnt be suprised if Wilson got a little more run this week, and he's by far a superior player IMO. Tate has the talent and showed that he can be productive even when given lesser workload. However, he could also not do much, and Denver has a decent run defense.

I think in trying to get players who are going to give you the best shot at producing, I'd go with Benson and Brown, though if Tate vultures another couple of scores he'll by far out produce either back..

Help with mine? its quite a bit easier

I did get Lynch so he is a for sure start and the two others are tough given the percentage starts with Brown. So Tate and Benson it is?

Tate and Benson are the best options available.
