Torrain is unproved and had a bad game last week though.
Torain is pathetic in pass protection and doesn't catch the ball particularly well. Not a good recipe for a new QB. Carolina will load up vs the run and make Beck try and beat them. I see a RBBC at best, and more inclined to see Hightower on the field a lot with Helu on 3rd down.
New Orleans will come out with all guns blazing on a Sunday nighter after losing last week. Sproles is the only back they have that allows them to run their full offensive package, and will continue to dominate the snaps. Indy has also had issues in kick coverage.
Sproles is a much safer play imo.
