I know Richardson is a stud and that I should probably start him, but he is playing Pit, who has been playing pretty good on D lately. Hillman plays KC who is terrible against the run. Who should I start?
QB- D. Brees, J. Freeman RB- M. Lynch, T. Richardson, R. Hillman, D. Brown WR- R. Wayne, M. Colston, L. Moore, J. Gordon, A. Brown TE- A. Hernandez, K. Rudolph, B. Myers
I would be tempted by Hillman, but if it's PPR I would definitely go with Richardson. He will still get a lot of the ball, and a fair few receptions. More potential for TDs too, particularly if Hardesty gets more carries and gives the Steelers more to think about. Also, are you looking for solid or a big score? I just feel that TR offers more reliable value.
Hillman...McGahee has been a workhorse for the Broncos all season, averaging well over 100 total yards in his last six games. Hillman will be the starter, with Denver relying on him on first and second down, as well as near the goal line, so fantasy owners can expect 75-100 yards of total offense from the new Broncos starter. He is another player worth owning in all formats, and starting as he will have an immediate fantasy impact, one that will continue for the remainder of the season.
