Mendenhall vs Philly or A. Brown vs Cleveland?

Postby beezer » Sat Oct 06, 2012 9:25 am

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

I would go with Mendy. It is his first game back, but I think he will get over 15 touches. Brown will see around 7 touches.

I'd have to also say Mendy over Andre Brown, for the same reason...Mendy should have more touches. He's healthy, so I think I'd roll with him.

Help with mine?

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 would definitely go Mendy over brown bc brown is getting the shaft from Bradshaw. I think brown is the better back over Bradshaw but apparently coughlin doesn't agree!! Go mendy.....I am.

Yup. I even dropped Brown because of the lack of touches he'll get now.

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

I think Mendenhall will probably get more yards, but I think Brown is more likely to score.

I'd probably go with Brown.

Lend a hand?
