    Bradshaw is now the man but also have Wilson and Bell. I'm looking at plugging one into the flex spot.

    The Giants brought back Brandon Jacobs which does not bode well for Wilson in the short run. Bell is probably a safer pick.

    I still tend to lean to Wilson...I think he bounces back this week and is the most talented...Well except for his hands...

    I'd be nervous starting Wilson this week, for a number of reasons. Obviously the big one is how many carries will he even get due to his fumble-itis? And if he does get the bulk of the carries, will they trust him with the goal line carries (I doubt it)? Then there's will Peyton go all Peyton on em and force them to abandon the run anyway?

    Way too many question marks for me personally. So if this were my decision I'd be looking at Bradshaw and Bell. With Bradshaw you have a starter who should get the bulk of the carries. With Bell you have a backup who scored almost 20 fantasy points last week and should remain a respectable part of the offense, especially on the goal line.

    I think Bell's upside is higher, despite being a backup. So that's who I'd go with. But I really couldn't blame anyone for going Bradshaw. He is the starter.

    These are all the things dancing around in my head too.

    Richardson ran for only 47 yards against the Fins at home. I'm not convinced Bradshaw is going to have a lot of room to run.

    The Cards only gave up 63 to the Rams last week and Bell might not see more than a few snaps.

    I'm over-thinking it as usual. :gaah:

    Just to follow up, I went with Wilson who gave me 1.7 points.

    If I'd gone with Bradshaw, I'd won this week with his 14.40 points. Bell put up 7.20.

    I wish I could tout my superior fantasy knowledge and say how you should've listened to me. But I'm the guy who started Luck over Vick this week.

    It's alright... I started Russell Wilson over Vick which is way worse.

    I forgot I even had Vick and I can't pay enough attention to all my leagues. If I had known, I would've made the switch because I knew Wilson wouldn't do much against the Niners.

    No hindsight... I would've gone with Bradshaw. I started him in a couple leagues over players who are better than Wilson and Bell.

    I think Wilson and Bell are emergency plug ins only - dude to bye weeks or injuries. Bradshaw is much safer.
