You absolutely have to go with Larry Fitzgerald, especially in a PPR. Dwyer is in a running-back-by-committee situation in PIT, sharing snaps with Mendenhall and Redman (as you know). Sure, Fitz has been stopped effectively all year and underproduced; but he's still put up double-digit production (PPR format) in half of his ten games this year. Dwyer has done that three times this year. And although the Browns are ranked #24 against the run this season, they have been quietly improving: the last three games they have held Ray Rice, Ryan Mathews, and Felix Jones all to less than 4 YPC and less than 100 total yards. One of Larry's double-digit production weeks this year was against the Rams, who he plays today. I would, without a doubt, start Larry today.

I echo what brosef jacobs said re: the committee in Pittsburgh. You simply can't play anyone in that backfield if you have a better option, and I think Fitz qualifies--particularly in PPR leagues.
