QB and RB help needed.

Postby robotninja » Fri Oct 11, 2013 1:01 pm


Probably going with Stafford at QB but if Megatron sits his Stafford worth sitting in favor of Terrell Pryor against a tough Chiefs defense?


CJ Spiller has been terrible, is injured, missed practice, and apparently flew to Oakland at some point this week?

Should he be riding the pine in favor of:

Ridley: Also has not been good and battling injury but seems to have more upside and the Saints arent the best Run Defense. Might be clear #1 and obviously has the talent but Belichik is the new Shanahan.

Pierre Thomas: Over achieved last week but with Ingram out he is only fighting for carries/catches with sproles. NE without Wilfork in the middle and could be high scoring.

Zac Stacy: Rams RB was off to a good start last week (yes against Jacksonville) but practiced all week and is a clear cut #1

Leave a link WHIR!

I think Stafford will be a good play.... Kansas Defense is going to be tough at home for Pryor...

I would go with P thomas..but Brees like to spread the ball around...except for Jimmy graham...

I'd stick with Stafford and Spiller.

Spiller scares me but he's the best you have.

I'd stick with stafford also he's always good for getting yards even without Johnson but it looks like he may still play. I wouldn't go with spiller even if he does play Jackson is getting majority of touches I would go with Stacy it's looking like there putting him rb1 for rams and he'll get a lot of snaps.

Go with Stafford. And because of injuries, go with Pierre Thomas. No really high on him, but he's what you got. Keep an eye on Stacy though, he's a solid add.

Thanks for the help.

Stafford regardless. KC's D is just too tough.

I'd go Spiller here. He didn't fly to Oakland, that was his teamate Stevie Johnson for a personal matter. He's not 100% healthy, but even with limited carries I like him better than the rest. Look what he did last week, he only played a handful of snaps, yet still took a 60 yarder to the house.

It depends if Calvin plays. Stafford and the rest of Detroits weapons suffer greatly without him in lineup. Just look at last week. Cleveland plays good D and that leaves Joe Haden to shut down Durham/Broyles... Pryor could use his legs a lot this week. Fitzpatrick ran for 50 yards vs KC last week and another QB had success on the ground as well. If Megatron plays, go with Stafford, if not I would go Pryor.

I like Thomas this week as well. Spiller still hurting and Jackson getting a lot of touches. Who knows what is going on in New England. I would sit Ridley until I see something.
