I got one room in my roster for a RB and I might have to use someone this week off the waivers. Who should I pick up Peyton Hillis or Pierre Thomas? Who would be better for week 12 and Who would be better for the rest of the season?

Leave a link and I'll get back as always!

Peyton Hillis...but P.Thomas could have more long term value.

Week 12 - Hillis
Season - Thomas (though it depends on the Deuce suspension, obviously)

I think this is how I see it. Both these guys are tough to call, as their positions on their respective depth charts aren't very secure. Hillis is the man in Denver right now, but with Deuce and Bush fragile, I could easily see Thomas having more long-term value--especially because "the man" in Denver changes pretty much every week. I could easily see Pope becoming fantasy relevant before the end of the year.

long term the best choice is pierre due to deuce's suspension, stecker on the ir and bush not being healthy. pt put up 20 last week

short term fix is hillis

peyton will get phased out once young gets healthy and bell gets comfortable

Tough call...but given Shanarat's history of doing the RB shuffle, I'd probably take the chance on Thomas; guy coul dbe big down the stretch assuming the suspension occurs, and taking into account the fragility of Bush.
