RB problems

Postby pfeiffdogg » Thu Oct 03, 2002 12:50 pm

All three of my RB's have either been a dissapointment or are inconsistent. Which two do I start this week?

Cory Dillion
Antowain Smith
Travis Henry

Thanks for the help!

Dillon against a still questionable defense, and Henry.

normally i agree with kashikis, but now is a rare time I can't...I say Dillon and Henry. Smith is in the doghouse and Bellichek will keep Tommy Boy throwing...

Well, these stats might help. Miami always seems to play better defense in the friendly confines of Pro Player Stadium. You can tell this by taking a peek at Smith's stats for his two games against Miami last year. In Miami, Smith rushed for 47 yards and 1 TD. In New England, he ran for 156 yards and 1 TD. Well, basically thats saying a. smith would be a bad start. Now lets look at the lo down on dillons outlook. The Bengals' star RB will be facing the terribly thin run defense of the Indianapolis Colts. They're ranked in the bottom third of the league against the run and do not present an imposing threat to the Bengals' offensive line. Well, that says it all. I dont know much about henry, but, he's going against oakland, so, He would be a good start. START DILLON AND HENRY!!!

This is a tought call because Henry is going against a pretty solid run D in Oakland, then Smith is going up against Miami and you saw how they kept Holmes bottled up last week, but I think after getting torched by the pass last week and knowing what brady is capable of, that the Dolphins concentrate on pass D this week. So I think Antwain Smith (a late starter anyway) will have a pretty decent (not necessarily a break out)game. I would Start dillon as well against a traditionally weak, indy D, and besides the bengals are going with their third qb in as many weeks, dillon is all they got.

So Dillon & Smith.

Dillon is a no-brainer start. The reason i say henry is cuz he is hot and i see him continueing his hot streak. I just dont think a. smith is involved (enough) at all in the pats offense. Cuz Tommy Boy is going to pass pass pass.
