Two Chargers RB starters, am I crazy?


#1

My current full PPR lineup in a 14 team is
Rivers
Kamara
Ekeler
Thielen
Keenan Allen
Eric Ebron
Spencer Ware

My opponent is vastly inferior in lineup for this first round of the playoffs and if I play it safe points wise I should have an easy win. Would I be crazy to start Justin Jackson over Ware to pretty much guarantee Chargers RB value against the Bengals or stick with Ware and start Ekeler??

Thats a really good question and clever thought process.
Ekler played the vast majority of snaps last week, even though Jackson looked better. Even if the timeshare is more equal, that tells me Ekler has a longer leash and will get the primary opportunity. I think the riskiest situations is if you play both LAC RBs and they don’t use both. So, because I think Ekler should see at least 50% opportunity, and Ware is THE guy on KC, I think the safest play is to keep what you have.
