This is exactly where I'm at, but still forced to start him unless I roll the dice for Miles sanders against NE or mattison's backup role. No bueno.
Funny, those are pretty much my options too. Looking at it (and asking Lundy), I may lean towards Sanders. It's not the best matchup but he has been getting receptions. With Alshon hobbled too, we may see a couple more go his way.
Difference maker for me is that this is standard. The receptions will give me yardage, but no extra ppr goodness. I dunno, it also seems like New England is worse against the jordan howard type than the sanders type.
