Yea, for some reason the steelers don't run very well. I would go with sproles. Bush is stuck behind Mcfadden. Sproles will get plenty of touches today.

Especially when the O-Line sucks and the shitty offensive coordinator calls almost all of his running plays up the gut instead of to the outside where Willie can utilize his speed.

Parker blamed himself for the poor running output lately, but I'm blaming the line and Bruce Arians. Willie's not a power back like Bettis was or Barber is -- he's got blazing speed and that's it. Hard to utilize that blazing speed when an ant can't even get through the "holes" they are creating.

I wouldn't start Parker until you actually start seeing some production out of him.

I agree with both points. That offensive line isn't making holes, and running Parker up the middle is a waste of time and talent. I would say the same thing about felix jones last week for the cowboys. Why were they running him up the gut?

Sproles for sure, especially if you get broke off for return points.

edit: if you start him as rb does his receptions count for anything?

I picked him up because I'm a little weak at RB. I've got Michael Turner, who has been lackluster thus far. I've also got Willie Parker, who I'm about to drop. I've also got Felix Jones, and started him and Turner over Bush this past week. Last minute change that worked out well for me, but I still lost. The dude I played had Chris Johnson.



Bush is a bust, but he's done better this year than Willie Parker. I think by week 4, Mendenhall will be the starter and Parker will be done.

Depends on the league. In my league, we do. We also get kick/punt return yardage as well, which most leagues don't.
