Rice vs bears or Nelson vs Gman? PPR?

This is a tough call, especially for a ppr league. Yes Chicago has been horrible against the run, but Rice has been even worse at running it than the Bears have been defending it. The thing with Rice is that he seems to have lost a step (sad for a 26 year old) or he's playing through an injury (although he's not been in the trainer's room after any recent games indicating he is healthy). He lacks the burst to get past defenders and doesn't make people miss like he has in the past and doesn't break any tackles anymore. You can say what you want about the offensive line problems in Baltimore, but Rice looks below average right now. His 2.5ypc is legit and he's not had a longer run than 14 yards!! He's also only averaging 3 catches per game this season. I'd go with Nelson who I think has the bigger upside this week despite playing with a rookie QB.

I'd also roll Nelson. He should be able to produce with any QB and I think his resume has proven that if there is a WR to trust in GB it'd be him. Rice has been bad on paper and even worse to watch. I wouldn't think about starting him until he shows otherwise.
