Obviously, this would hinge on AP playing at all. If not, it's an easy decision.

The word is that AP is going to be limited if he plays, so that is the hiccup. I picked up Ronnie Brown off waivers since Ryan Mathews will be out, but I'm not very confident in the play, even if it is against the Raiders.

So, what do you think? A limited Adrian Peterson vs Jax or Ronnie Brown vs the Raiders?

Ronnie will do great. I'm not sure why so many are down on brown. He was my number 1 last year and Mcgahee was my number two. Ronnie should ball out! He is guaranteed to get at least 15-20 touches and catch some passes out of the backfield.

Interestingly enough, that's what my two starting backs are going to be this week haha.

AP will easily be limited. They don't want to mess up his rehab. Go with Ronnie.

You must not have done very well last year if Ronnie Brown was your No. 1 RB.

Honestly I'd just try and pick someone up. I doubt Ronnie Brown will get a lot of touches, Rivers will probably come out with something to prove and throw it all over the place. Plus Brown is in a rapid decline, he only had 136 yards last year and 1 TD, not good at all. He's just living off of his name at this point. If he's available, I think Alfred Morris would be a great pickup. Shanny likes to ride the hot hand and I like the way he runs in that zone scheme. Helu and Royster are pretty good too but Morris is the biggest back and will get the goalline touches more than likely.

Lol, I hope you didn't actually start Brown over AP.
Regardless of his injury he is one of the best backs in the league. He got me 20 points for my teams where I have him.
