On my team, he would get my flex spot, but I benched him in favor of Laverneous Coles.
I have KJ and Portis as my starting RBs so flex would be the only place for Jordan.
It's not that tough a call for me. Jordan will ride the pine until he's needed as a bye-week replacement OR until the Raiders turn it around (yeah right - then again the only direction they can go is up)
RIDERS OF THE STORM QB Vick RB Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte, Lesean McCoy WR Brandon Marshall, Kenny Britt TE ? DEF Flavor of the Week K ?
I would start Gore over Jordan. CLE isn't a bad defense. They should have beat BAL last week.
KC, however, is a top passing defense. If SF is going to win, it will be through Gore. Regardless of his fumbles, Gore is still a quality back, a great receiving back, and has had the right attitude about the whols situation. The coaches still like him, and I wonder if they might not give him one more chance to redeem himself.
Goal line carries or not, he's still a good bet to outperform Jordan.
It's time to put down the crack-pipe and step away from the keyboard.
I'm considering playing him over Maroney this week. This is a good matchup for him, and with Walter playing, they should give him the ball 25-30 times. You'd think with that many touches he'd be able to get at least 100 total yards!!
Ok the raiders offence SUCKS!!! But they did play 2 of the best Ds in the league the first 2 weeks. if he played Cle and the Jets the first 2 weeks we'd probably be saying Jordan is a god right now. Like others have said, you didn't draft Jordan in the first round to sit him against CLE at home.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
I've got a choice between starting Lamont or KJ, and i'm going with KJ. Oakland's offense is horrid and Jordan unfortunately is a victim of it, or maybe he has lost a step, either way he's not a good option.
