Sit Leshoure in favor of Vick Ballard?!? WHIR 100%

Postby umvagia0 » Wed Dec 05, 2012 6:58 pm

Leshoure has been putting up decent stats, but the coach said Bell has earned some more touches. Now that Donald Brown is officially ruled out for Week 14, Vick Ballard against the worst run D in the league looks very good.

Thoughts? My other running backs are Lynch and Moreno, I don't see myself benching any of them.

Will help in return 100%

Thanks!

That is a tough call. Ballard has only scored 2 TDs all year, as Carter seems to come in at the goal line, however Ballard should get most of the carries there. Leshoure on the other hand scores a lot. I'd go with Leshoure, but it's a very close call.

Please help with mine:

I like LeShoure as well. Colts RB situation is a mess and as already mentioned ballard loses goal line looks.

I would go Leshoure, he gets some passes as well lately and goal line carries, I would be worried about Carter stealing carries from Ballard.


Help with mine, sbeaz

Thanks for the advice guys....making think twice about pulling any sneaky moves. Looks like Leshoure is less risky. Still not sure yet...hmmmmm

I'm on the opposite side here. I get that Leshoure gets goal line work, but you're talking about a guy averaging about three yards a carry in a pass first offense. Said offense now in disarray without a #2 wideout, and there's no way to tell how the Lions react to that. I don't see them all of a sudden wanting to pound the rock, and I really do see GB scoring points in bunches in this game. How many carries does Leshoure get when they're down by two scores or more? I'll take Ballard and the guaranteed touches. If Leshoure doesn't get a goal line carry or two, his value is pretty low, imo. Good luck!

I like Leashoure here as well. I have Leashoure in both my leagues and he's done well here lately.

BUMP

I am bumping this as I have the same question, but noticed no one mentioned weather. There could be snow on Lambeau when this game is played which could make this a messy game. I like Leshoure too, but with Ballard getting all the touches and weather is Ballard the call here?

I think i'm going with Ballard on this one now. Leshoure's numbers would be terrible if he doesn't get in the endzone. Still up in the air, but leaning towards Ballard.
