    I think CJ is unstartable honestly. maybe in the flex.

    he did get me 18 points last week tho. Forte is my number 1 obviously but I play in a 2 back league. My other rb is Moreno but broncos spread ball around so much and with loggains Cj gets his touches.

    He is very startable. He just comes with massive risk.

    I'm 7-4 in the particular league (also a $25 buy in), and it is set up to where only the top 2 make it (because we are spit into two 8 team divisions - so 2 teams from each division make it in).

    I lost last week by 2 points because Reggie Bush was awful (and a mixture of other bad luck). I fell to 3rd place. I'm playing the guy in 2nd place, and if I don't beat him I will essentially be eliminated from the playoffs because he will move to 9-3 and I will fall to 7-5. He will have the tiebreaker on me.

    So I don't know that I can risk playing CJ this week with Zac Stacy back from bye playing an awful Bears run D and Andre Brown playing the Cowboys who give up the most FF points to RBs.

    I'm rolling with Bush, Stacy, and Brown. Final decision. Will they end up being the best combo of the options I had? Probably not... but they're the safest.

    The guy in first has AP, Megatron, Peyton, and Demaryius, so there's probably no hope anyways.

    Ty Hilton, Eric Decker, Victor Cruz or Josh Gordon. Pick 2. I am leaning Gordon and Cruz. Gordon because I feel like anyone can throw on the Steelers and Cruz because dallas can't play D to save their lives.

    Hilton is probably a no to me because he will probably draw Patrick Peterson

    In the same league I have Zac Stacy, AD, and Andre Brown so I could sit one of them for a third wr

    I actually would go with Hilton and Decker. I am starting Hilton myself in my league, wish I had decker. The thing about josh gordon is , who is throwing him the ball? Cruz is also a good option as well. This is tough but just some advice from my perspective.

    Glad I stuck with my gut on Gordon. 204 and a touchdown.

    Josh Gordon with 237 and a td. The dude can be one of the best if he can get a good QB

    Thanks for trying to screw me and tell me to definitely start CJ and Rice! ;)

    I ignored that advice and left them on the bench. I did end up choosing correctly - for the most part. Vereen ended up with 2 more points than Bush, but I'd be stupid to bench Bush in a PPR league.

    I would've lost if I played CJ and Rice over Brown and Stacy for sure. That would've been 19 points less.
