Need a Bye Week RB

PPR league. With the Broncos and Seahawks on byes, I can't play Moreno or Jones in my second RB slot. Thus I need to pick one of the following:

Jerome Harrison vs GB
Tashard Choice vs Atl
Felix Jones vs Atl
Derrick Ward vs NE
Beanie Wells @ NYG
Justin Fargas vs NYJ
Jamaal Charles vs SD

Charles has a great matchup, but rarely gets touches. Maybe Fargas would be good with Kris Jenkins out for the Jets?

Could certainly take a chance on Fargas. I have trouble believing that losing Jenkins will turn the Jets D into the Rams, but still. After that, Jamaal (if the KC coaching staff suddenly gets a clue) or a Dallas RB (if you can figure out which one is going to get the most touches).

I still have a feeling about Choice, especially in PPR. If you don't have that feeling, Fargas is probably the only other guy worth starting this week.

I'd go Choice and then Fargas.
