Good morning,

Start/sit question:

10 team league/1 pt per 10 yards rushing/receiving/6 pts for rushing/receiving TDs/0 ppr

DeAngelo Williams vs. Titus Young vs. Justin Blackmon at a flex position.

Thanks!

Williams. I know he's facing competition for carries, but I doubt Cam monopolizes red zone TDs the way he did last year. I also don't believe in the Bucs' run defense at all. In PPR, I'd start Blackmon, as I'm buying the Gabbert improvement and like the Vikings' secondary about as much as I like the Bucs' run defense.

I suspect I'll say this a lot this year, but start any Shanahan RB at your own risk.

Bradshaw. I don't love either Brown or Hillis, partly because of matchups. Of the two, I slightly prefer Brown.

Hah that's almost the same as I've got - I've only got Thomas and Rodgers to choose between though. I went for Rodgers because I get points for KR yards, and I'm guessing his touch count will be less variable than Thomas. I only did that cause I'm favoured to win my head-to-head, if I wanted to gamble a bit I'd go Thomas.
