    Posted: 07 Nov 2013 at 12:45pm
Here's the decision I'm facing:

Hakeem Nicks @ Oak
Andre Ellington @ Hou
Pierre Thomas @ Dal

I want to put in Ellington since he's coming off a great week and but has a tough matchp.  Nicks against Oak is a better matchup but lower upside. Thomas vs. Dal could be a big score but I'm up against Brees so the points are somewhat negated. 

I need to put in an RB2 and a Flex from these guys...

Anyone have anything to add or is this just as tough as I think it is? Luckily I'm not considering anyone playing tonight so there's some time to choose. 

Thanks team!

I go with Nicks, and it is just a hunch. His rec. yards have been okay this season, he just isnt finding the endzone. I think he is going to break out soon and have a big game. But of course, most of his problems are really Eli problems anyways....

i avoid all New Orleans backs like the plague, so i guess i would go with Ellington. Only problem with him is the fact that Mendenhall is going to get the bulk of the carries inside the 20. Still, i think there is enough potential there to edge out Pierre. And the Houston defense is not that great. I think it is a favorable match-up for any running back

Thanks for the insight astrofanatic! I tend to agree with you but it's so tough going against every ranking out there that puts Thomas over Ellington. Conflicting info about Ellington & Mendenhall's split on the number of carries; some saying Ellington will get the majority and some agree with your analysis that Mendenhall will. It's only Thursday night and I think I've swapped Ellington and Thomas 10 times in the past 2 hours.

Anyway, thanks for the reply. Good stuff to think about.
