Outside the top ten things could get iffy.  This doesn’t look like a great overall group this week.  Touchdowns may be the difference for many of these backs this week.  There’s plenty more starts comparable to the back-end of the top 24 sitting just outside.  It sounds like Bush will give it a go. But Bell is a good flex play.  Rice is day-to-day.  I think Pierce gets the heavier work load this week.  Andre Ellington could be a solid flex.  He may get the nod over Mendenhall in New Orleans.  Ellington found the end zone in week two and his value is higher in PPR leagues.
