Pickup Shorts or F. Jones? PPR - WHIR

Postby mjhokie » Sun Nov 04, 2012 10:23 am

My RB corps is.....

LeShoure
T. Richardson
Dwyer
Sproles

My WR corps is.....

Cruz
Maclin
Torrey Smith

TE Graham

We start 2 RBs/2WRs/TE/Flex each week......PPR LEAGUE

Should I pick up Cecil Shorts or Felix Jones??? Chris Ivory is also an intriguing option (given Sproles recent hand surgery)

I would be more inclined to pick up Shorts because he gives you the better chance to start for you the rest of the season, whereas Jones is temporary while Murray is out. Plus Jones has a nagging knee injury which may limit him for the next few weeks.

Thanks. Given Sproles news today of out 4-6 weeks, should I drop him for additional RB depth (maybe even a flyer on Ivory) or stash him in hopes he will be back for week 15 and 16 playoffs (I am currently 1 game back in WC)????

Don't drop Sproles. I would look to drop someone else from your roster. Ivory wouldn't be a bad bench player to have for the next few weeks.
