Sproles or Brown? PPR- WHIR

Postby BearsFan65 » Fri Nov 23, 2012 2:51 pm

PPR scoring, all td's = 6. McCoy concussed, so my options at RB (need two) are:

Reece @ CIN - no worries here with DMC and Goodson still out
Sproles v SF - coming off the injury, and he should just go back to his usual role, but SF defense is a tough matchup
B Brown v CAR - better matchup, should be a three down back, but that Philly offense....ugh.

I feel like Brown might have some extra value with Foles at QB. McCoy caught more balls last week than he had in any game all year, so it stands to reason that Brown likely sees a few checkdowns too. He already had some of the goal line work, so now he gets all of it. Hard to tell how much usage Sproles will get first game back.

Who to sit between Sproles and Brown? WHIR, thanks!

id have to say play brown here
sproles broke his hand, his biggest value is catching and its his first game back against a great run D
that just seems like a lot against him

and with vick out, brown may be called on more and has a better match up

im usually weary of players firsts games back too

good luck

please help with mine

Reece and Brown
sit sproles for one more week until he proves himself
plus Sf looked great last week
Brees may look downfield more towards colston and lance moore

I would also vote for Brown. I am typically warning people away from Philly, but in your case, I think Sproles might be a little riskier this week.

Thanks for your help with mine.

Thanks for your help on mine.

I am personally real nervous about starting sproles. I would take just about any starter over him, even Ppr.

So, I would definitely go with brown. I agree with your analysis, but mainly just too much uncertainty with sproles.
