With Forte and F. Jackson going down (and A.hernandez) in the same leauge, it leaves me starting BJ Green ellis and peyton hillis.

I feel good with BJGE but I drafted hillis to sit on because I don't think charles will make all 16 games. But now I need to stay in the hunt.

would dumping hillis for one of them be a little too much too early?

If Bradshaw is out for a couple games i think A. Brown would be a good pickup, but I can see LeShoure staying in for the year.

And to make it worse, Hillis is against the Saints this weekend.

tough call but I like keeping Hillis right now. In another week maybe different story. A. Brown would be a good pick-up and you could probably get Hillis back in a later week.

I picked up Leshoure last week. The word out of Detroit is they're going to use him quite a bit as their running game leaves a lot to be desired and Kevin Smith isn't very durable. I'm starting him this week in a PPR league behind Ray Rice and over Roy Helu, Jacquizz Rodgers. *Michael Turner was busted for DUI early this morning, so Jacquizz Rodgers may be a better play for me.* We'll see.

I also was privy to that inside info on Leshoure last week and picked him up off waivers.By week 5 Leshoure will have the Lions RB1 position locked up IMO.Saying that,unless you NEED a Le`sure thing THIS week I'd go with Leshoure.KC's backfield is slowly turning into a 3 back rotation/commity,so I don't see Hillis having the upside long term.As a week 3 plug in Brown is the guy.Remember neck injuries for a RB can be tricky and Coughlin isn't going to risk losing Bradshaw long-term.I'd get the reports Wed afternoon on Bradshaw's condition and make my decision.

LeShoure will be in a time share with Kevin Smith and his coming off a terrible injury.

I hope it works out for you but I would not get too excited about any Lion RB.
