League 1...

Eddie Lacey for sure. He's a solid running back tied to a great offense. Not a great matchup so I wouldn't expect him to blow up but should provide serviceable #s.

I also like TY Hilton vs Oakland. I expect Luck will spread the ball around more this year and not lean on Wayne so much. Great matchup.



League 2...

Bradshaw vs Oakland. I always prefer an RB (provided he's a starter) in my flex spot over a WR unless I have some ridiculous depth at WR. Great matchup here


Thanks for the help with mine :)

Thats just the thing with Bradshaw, hes practicing with the 2s so not sure if they will be easing him into the season. I still expect him to get decent carries but wouldnt be surprised if he only gets 12-14 carries, and gives me 50-60 yards without a TD. Especially if Pryor throws a few picks early and the Colts get ahead they might give Ballard more of that garbage time work in the second half

Ah I was under the impression Bradshaw was starting.

In the scenario you described... I would expect them to keep the ball on the ground to keep their offense on the field longer so even with split carries he'd do well.

But since he isn't the clear cut starter, I'd go with Vareen vs the Bills... I wouldn't be surprised to see him lining up all over the field... not just in the backfield... especially with Gronk out.
