My RBs are Holmes, M. Faulk, Staley, and Emmit. My question is should I start Smith over Faulk, because Faulk is splitting time? I'm not going to start Staley, until he learns the Pittsburgh offense a little bit more.
Due to injuries and bye weeks I started Emmitt weeks 4 and 5, and am starting him this week as well.
He was undrafted in our league and I picked him up after the draft. It has really worked out for me.
Let's hope he does well again this week. My other back is S Davis. I'm telling you, I can't wait for Jamal to come back. I also have Onterrio, who was a WW pickup. I may start him over Davis when he comes back.
Not sure how the leading rusher in NFL history is underrated. But yeah.
He's had some good games. Take away that throwing TD and he's not even a top 20 RB. With the TD he's 17th. Not exactly a huge sleeper. Being that he's 54 years old, I'd wager he won't be able to match this production the rest of the year.
It's usually a bad idea to chase points, espically when the RB is 54 years old. But if he's your 2nd best RB, you're probably last in your league anyway so go nuts.
