Hearst Starts.

Matt Maiocco, Press Democrat

Running back Garrison Hearst will start Sunday against the Chicago Bears, 49ers coach Dennis Erickson announced Monday. But expect to see a lot of backup Kevan Barlow, too. Hearst and Barlow will likely split the action from series to series, Erickson said.

Thanks again, G Pup, for another informative tidbit. As a Barlow owner I have dreaded this news, but now I know and can start one of my stud WR in my flex position.

Hey mooch, I was dreading this too. I hope that Barlow can progress throughout the year and eventually not only start, but get the majority of the carries.

I have both Hearst and Barlow.......and A-Train also to choose from as my No. 2 starter back. I have Portis as my No. 1 RB. Who do I go with as my No. 2 fantasy back? I was leaning towards Hearst this week because of him being named the starter and likely getting more redzone shots because he is still the old man Barlow has to push out of the way. Any thoughts. Obviously this is a week by week thing.

Thanks

yes, Hearst v. A-Train

I have the same dilemma. Hearst or A-Train for the #2 RB? Who to start? Priest is my #1 guy...
Thanks for the help!

I would also start Hearst. A-Train will have to prove it to me before I would risk a starting position on him. i can't see Hearst keeping the job all season. Barlow will probably take over once Hearst gets nicked up, say week 6-7.

as a hearst owner, i still don't know why there is such a fantasy bandwagon for barlow. true he is younger and more explosive, but there is one major reason why he WON'T be seeing alot of PT....he doesn't block and the coaching staff knows it. they will not let garcia get killed b/c barlow missed a blocking assginment when hearst is a superior backfield blocker and offers greater protection. another interesting note is that apparently beasley and barlow do not get along, and you can't ignore the significance of your lead-blocker disliking you.....

I drafted Barlow in the 7th round of our draft AFTER I took Canidate & Hambrick. Pretty much figured it would be another year of the sharing with Hearst B.S. However, I did like him in the 7th round in case Hearst goes down or they finally see the light.
