There is absolutely no way Leshoure earns less than 6 points this week (barring early injury).

AND, Leshoure has better upside. I wouldnt be at all surprised if he poped 15+.

Felix's upside is 12 points, that's the best you could ever hope for with Felix.

That could very well be. I already said basically just pick who you think has the most upside and roll with it. i just don't like guaranteeing my advice like you apparently have no problem doing. It's all educated guessing, stop pretending like you know something everyone else doesnt.

There is absolutely a way leshoure can get less than 6 points. Do i think it likely? no. My guess is they both end up with about the same anyways. All i know is that I offered my advice, i stick to that but have said "this is what i'd do, here's why." take it or leave it and i wont regret giving that advice no matter what happens.



Edit: thought better of one sentence in there

I feel like Leshoure is the better bet here,

a) because the hypothetical downside is not as bad as it is for Jones (Leshoure will probably get, at the very minimum, 5 points, whereas it is entirely possible that Jones gets 3)
b) the upside for leshoure is much higher than it is for Jones- as someone else pointed out here, Seattle is going to focus on Megatron, leaving the run game vulnerable. More importantly, Felix Jones is injured, whereas LeShoure is all Detroit's got, for running.

There is a reason I have Tanner riding my pine right now, that's just how much I trust Jones. I say start LeShoure

Leshore. With Nate Burleson done for the season- Lions relying on a rookie (Broyles) and underachieving Titus Young to pick up the slack for the recieivng corps. This should be an uphill battle vs a solid Seahawks secondary hawking Calvin- running the ball and short screens is the best hope for the Leos at home. Leshore gets the volume of carries @ RB as well.

As a disclaimer- I have used Felix over the years and am wary about his durability and consistency issues.

Like LeShoure this week, Dallas o line is a wreck and Felix is an accident waiting to happen.
