Week 13 Lineup Help
I'm having a hard time deciding who to start at flex and RB2. I have a bunch of players who are decent plays I think.
I'd like to start LeShoure because he has a favorable matchup against the Colts but I'm not sure if I should Sproles or Steven Jackson. Jackson has been good lately but its a tough matchup against the 49ers but he did do well against them last time they played. Sproles had decent production for coming off of injury and playing the 49ers, as a pass catcher he should be involved because this game should be a shootout. (Just looked this up. He lead the team in receptions with 7, lead the team in receiving yards with 65 and lead the team in targets with 9 this past Sunday. Sproles seems to be back to his role in their offense.)
Here's who I'm deciding between:
RB: LeShoure vs IND, S Jackson vs SF, Sproles @ ATL, R Bush vs NE
WR: D Alexander vs CIN
Here's who I am definitely starting, help me fill in the blanks:
QB: Drew Brees @ ATL
WR: Julio Jones vs NO
WR: Decker vs TB
RB: Lynch @ CHI
TE: Gonzalez vs NO
D: Broncos vs TB
We can probably start by tossing Alexander out, since Cincy is pretty good against the pass, and they have a pass rush which, against that offensive line, means Rivers is probably going to have a bad day. Again.
Of your RBs, I'm going with Sproles and Leshoure. You can move the ball against Atlanta, and Sproles looks like his old 100+ yards on 14 touches self. The Indy defense is suspect (but improving), and Leshoure will get goal line carries plus his regular workload.
It's true that Jackson is playing well and had a nice day last time out vs. the Niners, but I can't imagine that'll happen twice. And I don't trust Bush against a solid run defence and with Daniel Thomas coming on of late.
Thanks bro. That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking about those guys and who to start. I'm glad to know there's more than one guy out there who thinks this is a good idea. It makes me feel less crazy.

Leshoure is automatic for your RB spot. He's been hot the past 4 weeks and has a weak Colts run D at home. Steven Jackson should be your FLEX, but monitor his foot. If he doesn't go Sproles has the slight edge over Bush.
