In a spot where Sproles is on the BYE this week.

Have Frank Gore going in one spot.

Dropped Kevin Smith because he hasnt done anything the past couple weeks and is 3rd on the Lions depth chart

My question is do i go with Stephens-Howling who i picked up earlier in the week for Arizona. Says he's getting the start and did decent last year in his only start. Going against Buffalo seems like its worth a shot.

Orrrrrr i can grab Alex Green off waivers as of now. Packers going against that Texans Defense, Stephens-Howlings seems like the pick...any thoughts fellas?

Also have Danny Woodhead on the bench, everytime ive started him this year he's done something for me, but i dont like his match-up this week against the Seahawks.

Will answer your team questions as well....good luck this week.

I think a lot of people had to make that decision this week as well with cardinals backups vs. packers backups.

Green Bay has major O-Line issues. The best way to slow a pass rush is to run the ball and throw screens. Whoever gets the majority of the touches Sunday night well have a solid game. Fantasy notes say Starks is the better pass blocker. That could relegate Green to the bench, but I am starting him this week.

Too many questions on Arizona's RB core. I've seen a lot of Arizona RBs produce when given the chance. Likely a true RBBC, and I like Buffalo in that game.

Unless Woodhead gets a TD, he's not going to give you more than like 5-6 points. I don't like the matchup either, and New England's got 4 RBs now with Verheen in the mix on top of whoever the darn that Boldin guy is.

tough call. i don't trust green or howlings. i would roll with green and hope he doesn't lose too many carries to stark. buf has been embarrassed two Weeks in a row, i think they smarten up this week.

gl with what you decide.

I'd gamble on howling being the best matchup. Not much else to go on here. If the report is right and green doesn't block much I wonder how much he actually plays here. Gb best interest is keeping arod alive and watts is coming!
