You could have picked him up last week when I told you to, but here you are reading this and lamenting that you did not heed the advice.
Well, what are you waiting for? Put in a claim for Leshoure! Bet a big chunk of your FAAB budget if you have to.
If folks in your league did not race to get him in free agency last week after news of Michael Turner's DUI broke, try to nab Rodgers before it's too late.
While Turner actually had a nice game against the Chargers, he remains at a molasses-level YPC this season. The Falcons got 'Quizz involved more this week, getting him 15 touches after he had just 12 in the first two games combined.
Turner may not see a suspension for his DUI, but Rodgers will have a nice game or two if he does. Besides, he is the most dynamic back in that backfield.
Daniel Thomas/Lamar Miller
Reggie Bush's knee injury appears to be minor, meaning he will likely be back this week against the Cardinals. In what capacity remains to be seen.
Thomas was already having a decent day before Bush was knocked out against the Jets, though, having vultured a goal-line touchdown away from the dynamic starter. All in all, Thomas got the vast majority of the playing time over Miller despite the latter's offensive output in Week 2.
Still, Miller is the more talented back, and he should eventually overtake Thomas once he can learn the offense.
The walls are closing in on Shonn Greene, whose ineffectiveness has hampered the Jets offense for years.
Greene once again averaged two hot pockets and an old shoe last week against the Dolphins while Powell rushed the ball 10 times for 45 yards. Let's see...divide 45 by 10, we get "Powell should be starting." OK.
It's come to this.
Fred Jackson is on the mend. C.J. Spiller's injury is so minor that he might play this week. Will you choose Choice over other viable waiver wire pickups? Unless you own Jackson or Spiller, or you are in an extremely deep league, the Choice is wrong.
Others to Consider
It appears that Kevin Smith is no longer currying favor with the Detroit Lions. Mikel Leshoure is suddenly the work horse and Bell seems to be the backup—he played 17 more snaps than Smith on Sunday. Worth considering, especially if you picked up Leshoure.
It took him a while, but Hillman finally climbed the depth chart to be the No. 2 running back behind Willis McGahee and the third-down back. If he can hang onto that job, he has some nice PPR value.
