Pierre Thomas??

Postby giantss88 » Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:04 am

With the Sproles injury, it is assumed and expected for Pierre Thomas to pick up a majority of those 10-15 touches. He is a good pass catcher and runner which makes him the lodgical candidate to benefit from the Sproles injury.

Do I start him this week against Philly monday?

RB1- McCoy
RB2- LeShoure?
Flex- Hakeem Nicks

do i play Thomas over LeShoure or Nicks with the Sproles injury? I mean Sproles always had good production on limited snaps.

help. Leave a link WHIR. Thanks in advance.

I would put Thomas in over LeShoure for this week. Mikel has shown nothing and rumor has it Detroit wants to focus on the passing game even more.

Good luck and please help viewtopic.php?f=19&t=528543

:-)

EDIT - I missed Nicks. I am sitting nicks this week. looking a bit scraped up and this is going to be a hard game. Low scoring Put Thomas in your flex

Replace Nicks with Pierre. Leshoure has a juicy matchup and is almost a lock to give you 10 this week at a minimum.

Bump..

Nicks can go off at any time. But my WR1 and WR2 are Aj Green and Percy Harvin, dont think I can bench either of them.

Pierre Thomas is gonna get his normal touches plus an extra 5-10 of Sproles touches.
LeShoure has the nice matchup and with Calvin Johnson being limited it could give him more touches?

I would put Thomas in over Nicks. LeShoure should get a lot of carries this week against a bad Jax team.

I'd play Pierre over Leshoure. Just too inconsistent.

Lend a hand?

I really like Leshoure this week. JAX has one of the worst run D's in the league. I think he will be very solid this week. I would play him over Pierre

I also really like P. Thomas. My guess is that those 10-15 touches are split something like this: 5 to Pierre, 3 to Graham, 3 to Moore, 2 to Ivory, 2 to Ingram.

So, yes, I think it gives him a bump, but not an exponential one.

Everyone saying that Nicks is going to go off, what is the evidence of that? PIT still gives up the 7th fewest points to fantasy WR's. Yes, he might go off. but, I really don't see any evidence suggesting it.

Having said all that, i would still play Nicks. NO matchup isn't great either. And, Nicks does have more upside.

If I usually have players for prime time especially a monday night game like this one, I'd start Thomas and no leshoure. Bell will steal his carries and they are going to throw a ton!
