Felix Jones or LeShoure? WHIR!

Postby curtk » Fri Oct 26, 2012 12:46 pm

My roster and league info are in my sig.

With Rice on a bye, I have to choose between Felix Jones and LeShoure for my open RB spot. Felix is home against NYG and LeShoure is home against SEA. Felix has a better matchup, but is injury prone. Plus, he didn't do much with his good matchup last week. LeShoure gets a lot of good "press," but he has only scored double digits once all season and has a tough matchup.

What are your thoughts?

Leave a link for return help...thanks!

Thanks for the help.

I think I'd go Felix man. Yea he's a little risky but he could bust out some good runs like he did 2 weeks ago. LeShoure hasn't proven much and the Lions are just not clicking. And even if ALL that weren't true, he's got a tough matchup against SEA. I'm saying Felix.

Nice helmet ! I would go Leshoure here.yes it's not a good match up but he is All they have. I think he has a good chances for some goaline work this week due to the backups fumbles last week. I dislike Jones for the same reasons you stated.he hasn't done much with good match . Good luck!

Man, pretty much a coin flip. I'd go with Jones I guess. Lions look all out of sorts.

Worst advice ever! LESHOURE FOR SURE!

Felix is terrible & has a bruised knee, Leshoure is good.
The cowgirls O-Line is terrible!- Even Arian Foster wouldnt be top 5 with the cowboys offensive line.

The Seahawks gave up a ton of rushing points last week.

Matthew Berry & many experts have Leshoure as a top 20 back this week, miles ahead of Felix.

Also, the only thing the Giants defense does well is stop the run! Their pass rush is terrible, their secondary is terrible! Cowboys will run a total of 18 times this game. 14 of them go to Tanner!

Leshoure got over 5 yard per carry against the Bears. Experts predict the Seahawks to do exactly what the Bears did, take out megatron. I PROMISE that the Lions are scheming right now to take advantage of the big run lanes which the Seahawks will GIVE them so they can take out megatron.

A ton of rushing points LAST week but are stingy as heck overall.
The giants arent slouches either and detroits O-line is week too.

It's a toss up. I wouldnt really regret going with either.

Felix may very well earn absolutely 0 points this week.
