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?

W/R/T: Cecil Shorts III
TE: Jason Witten

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.
12 team, 5x5 roto,  3 keepers ( 1 year only for 1 round sooner than they were drafted. No 1st rounders can be kept.)

  C - Ramos
1B - V Martinez
2B - J Harrison
3B - M Cabrera
SS - Aybar
MI - B Miller
CI - S Pearce
OF - J Hamilton
OF - A Jones
OF - L Martin
OF - Trout
UT - Eaton
BN -   Trumbo (DL), Betts, Taveras

SP- CJ Wilson, Lackey, Iwakuma, Hahn, Arrieta, Duffy
RP - Holland, Melancon
BN- Verlander, Hughes

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