(1) pt per (10) yards rushing and receiving

(6) pts per TD

Already starting Ray Rice but unsure who to start as my # 2:

Darren Sproles-@ the Giants. He seems to be a forgotten asset. Perhaps thats due to the injury and slowly working him back in.....but he didn't even see a rush this past Thursday. He seems to be an all or nothing play right now as he got me under (6) pts this last week. Also with the Saints season basically over from a playoff standpoint I wonder how intense they will really play going forward.

Fred Jackson-Home against the Rams. I know he had a solid game this past weekend but that maybe more due to the Bills having a very large lead and Jackson getting the bulk of the second half action. With Spiller as the starter I'm not sure what to make of Jackson's value.

Jonthan Dwyer-Home against San Diego. He's the start now but if he even fumbles the ball once during a game does he immediately go to the bench? He finally got a touchdown and with Big Ben looking to come back this week perhaps they lean on the run even more to protect Big Ben?

Marcel Reece-Home against the Broncos. All indications are McFadden is coming back but we also thought that last week. If McFadden is announced as active I can't see anyway I start Reece given my other options. However, if he does start and with the Broncos likely to put a good amount of points that could lead to Reece getting plenty of check down passes out of the backfield.

Who would you start? Perhaps news that will come out over the course of the week will help with my decision.

Sproles at the Giants. FJax, Dwyer, and Reece all have match ups against teams that are stingy against the run. Hopefully the Saints coaching staff will look at the tapes and see that the NO O is much better with Sproles in the backfield.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D

12 Team PPR League 0.25 pts/completion 1 pt/rec 1 pt 10 yds rushing & receiving 6 pts TD, 1 pt 25 yds/ passing 4 pts passing TD, -2 fumble, -2 int

I go with Dwywer then Sproles second. Sproles has been so hit and miss this year. He is like the Lance Moore of running backs.
