In a 12-team PPR league that starts two RBs.

Now that Drake has been traded to Arizona, should I start him (vs SFO) over Carlos Hyde or Adrian Peterson?

Yes, my team is that sad, but these are the cards I have to play. I am leaning to keep Drake on my bench this week because of new team and versus very tough DEF. Hoping he turns into a winning lottery ticket in a few weeks.

What does the Tank think?

Absolutely not. I would still roll with Hyde. Drake isn’t supposed to get a big workload. He could be a factor in the passing game but it would be risky starting him.

I have Hyde as my RB#1, would you start Drake over ADP given matchups and newness to team?

I think I would go with ADP. It’s looking more and more of a mess this week in Arizona as far as the RB situation goes.
