mendy has the higher ceiling but it's too early to ask this question. i'd see how he looks in practice the rest of the week.
right now, i say sproles but part of that is because i think tomlin will play it safe and let mendy rest or keep him limited. TB's run defense is legit. a lot of that has to do with teams double teaming mccoy or bennett and foster having a near pro bowl season while rookies david and barron have really stepped up. sproles will still get his catches though and will probably be able to break off a big play or two.
in short....mendy is the higher risk/higher reward. sproles is the far safer way.
