So this week is my first round of the playoffs and my team has been on fire lately(and I would like to keep it that way). PPR league with 1 point per 20 return yards. Team in sig.

I have 2 RB slots and a flex position to fill up. My options are Danario Alexander, Julio Jones, Darren Sproles, CJ Spiller, and Knowshon Moreno.

Danario - stud lately and has been getting the ball forced to him(although it is Rivers) but has a tough matchup
Julio - I really have no confidence in this guy and I doubt he sees my starting lineup ever again
Sproles - was a monster before his injury/Joe Vitt changed the offense. But he still looks like he'll have a floor of 10 points with huge upside.
Spiller - semi tough matchup against Seattle this week but should be good for at least 12 points
Moreno - has been nothing but solid and seems to get 3-5 receptions each week

I feel the safe play is to play all of the RBs. What do yall think?

$50 12 Team PPR, 11-2(2-0 playoffs, Champion)

QB: Philip Rivers

RB1: Arian Foster

RB2: Jeremy Hill

WR1: Megatron

WR2: Jordy Nelson

W/R/T: Jeremy Maclin

TE: Rob Gronkowski

Bench: Martavis Bryant, Shane Vereen, Isaiah Crowell, Josh Gordon, Kyle Orton

I like Moreno and Spiller and either Alexander or Sproles as flex.

Will Jackson looking like he will miss time Spiller is a must start. Moreno has looked really good so I think they need to be there. I would lean Alexander at flex because he is becoming the go to guy so he will get his looks. NO has so many weapons Sproles could put up a dud, but I still think he is a very viable option.

Agree with DX, Spiller and Moreno. Though if something comes up, then Julio is the next best.
