TNF need quick help, whir!

Standard scoring league.

Team is in my sig:

Im thinking of starting

QB: Freeman
RB: Rice, Brown
WR: White, Jackson
TE: Graham
Flex: Smith
K: Gostkowski
DEF: Seattle

What do you guys think? I need to make a decision on Brown by tonight... its probably between him and .. Sproles?

Brown's pretty safe for tonight, but I'd definitely consider Welker, Sproles, or maybe even Matthews over Smith in your flex spot...

I'd actually give some serious thought to Matthews. Higher risk, but higher reward against a pretty bad Def that gives up loads of points to RBs...

Yeah i know, i just see Welker vs SF as a problem but you never know with stupid NE... every week is different. Sproles is intriguing but then again every game is different with NO as to who gets the ball. Mathews is probably a no? But then again he could actually do great this week.

Cam and carolina have been on a tear lately and against SD it feels like a good matchup... bah i hate these decisions.

I consider Welker and Sproles both better options than Smith this week in your flex

good luck

I'd take the Mathews risk over Brown. And I'd probably go Welker over Smith.

You have flexibility because you have some good options at RB, but I would keep Brown in there over Sproles.

I'd start Welker over Steve Smith as well.

I think ive decided to keep Brown in, its between Welker and Mathews for the flex spot now. Man do i wish NE wasnt playing SF this week this would be a much easier decision. Welker is the better option but has a way worse matchup.

I'd have a hard time trusting Matthews if I were you, even with the favorable matchup. Welker is just too good to bench, regardless of the matchup, and even more so since it's fantasy playoff time.

I'd leave your lineup the way it is. Mathews has a lot of potential but I like to play it safe in a do or die situation.
