Been anxiously awaiting Mendy's return, but not sure what to expect from him in his first game back against a stout Philly run defense. I'm very tempted to start Brown against a soft Cleveland run defense even though he's behind Bradshaw. He could at least get short yardage/goal line carries. This is in a 14 team PPR. Thanks. WHIR
QB - Rodgers, Palmer RB - Mendenhall, Ridley, A. Brown, D. Thomas, Vereen WR - Nicks, Cobb, Lloyd, Broyles, Hankerson, Hixon TE - Hernandez, Olsen K - Hanson D - Cowboys
I was going to say Brown until I found out that you weren't referencing the Pitt WR
Mende is a risky play this week until we see his burst the load of work Pitt is ready to give him in the offense. He could have a breakout week like AP did in Wk 1 or be a total bust. With Brown I'd say the floor is a bit higher than Mende but doesn't have near the upside now that Bradshaw healthy again.
i'd go with andre brown, i think his upside is actually higher than mendenhall's this week. eagles d is good against the run and i don't really expect mendenhall to do too much against them. giants should get up against cleveland have be able to run a lot, so maybe andre brown steals a touchdown or something. thanks for the help too
