Is Faulk's injury a blessing in disguise for my team?

Postby brdmaverick » Mon Sep 22, 2003 10:47 am

Well, through the first three weeks of the season I have been starting Marshall Faulk and platooning Jamal Lewis with Fred Taylor. Well, as it has turned out, Jamal Lewis and Fred Taylor should have been the guys I started all along. They have outscored Faulk every week. Now I don't have to make the tough decision of putting Faulk on the bench, his injury makes it a no brainer. Of course, I would rather have the healthy, old Faulk that put up numbers the way Priest Holmes is now.


of course, the bye week is giong to hurt as well, because my fourth string running back is Amos Zereoue.

If you can get Lamar Gordon, that would be a blessing. He faces AZ next week.

I think it's a blessing in disguise. It's hard to actually bench Faulk when you know he is playing, but reason dictates you should have. I had the same problem with Tiki, Faulk & Lewis. I was THIS close to benching Faulk for Lewis, but I benched Tiki instead. I still made out with more points, but I just couldn't bring myself to bench Faulk even though I felt I should have.
