Start Damien Harris or Leonard Fournette

Start Damien Harris or Leonard Fornette?

Or bench CeeDee Lamb to start both Harris and Fournette? Full PPR

Both RBs have good matchups, as both their teams should see positive game scripts, that should lead to a lot of work on the ground. Fournette sees more targets than Harris, which gives him an edge over Harris in PPR.

I’d not consider flex-starting an RB over a WR in a PPR league. However, if you are ahead in projections and aim for a safer floor, rather than a higher ceiling, you may still consider it. My projection for Lamb is a lot higher, but the Cowboys’ offense can be random at times, leading to their studs disappearing completely. Exhibit A - Lamb’s production last week.

In short:
Ceiling: Lamb > Fournette > Harris
Floor: Fournette > Harris > Lamb

ZakHH - Thank you for your excellent thorough analysis. I have a tough match-up this week so I now lean toward Lamb > Fournette > Harris based on your advice
