Lol, I knew this was coming.

I have him on the bench..but I still won pretty easily over my opponent. I need him next week though because my flex back (edge) is on bye. I like his chances against the Skins to get a TD. Any skins fans that can tell us if your starting DTs are still out?

I started him in one league where I was getting blown out and his output made no difference.

Sat him in another league where I could have really used these points. Also benched McNair in this particular league :-P I would have blown out this guy if I had started them both.

I'd say that if anyone was depending on a backup goalline vulture RB to win the week for them, your team has other issues.

It would have been tough for anyone to predict that MB3 would have a multi-TD game tonight. People who started him should get a ;-D . People who didn't don't necessarily get a :-t though. But I can see why you would :~( .

In TD heavy leagues he has a decent amount of value. In one of my money leagues, He's in the top 5 in terms of overall points now for RBs.

Obviously not knowing what your team looks like, but I have to agree with the others. I would never have recommended starting Barber against a decent defense over someone like Lundy (who you could have snagged off waivers this year) against a horrible Tennesee defense. It really comes down to what your bench looks like when your main players are on bye.

Yea, I can see what you mean. But tonight was a bit of an aberration. No one would have predicted such a lopsided win for the Cowboys, which contributed to the extra carries MB3 got. My statement was mostly for people this week.

I suppose there's gonna be a mad scramble in a lot of leagues tomorrow looking for Marion Barber III though, lol.

I dunno..He didn't score a TD last game..but prior to that he had a 4 game TD streak. Parcells plugs him in at the goal-line quite a few times per game. As long as he gets goal-line carries, he will produce. (Well, TDs at least)

Well I had Portis, Betts, and SA out this week, and I started Tatum Bell so I had to choose between Jacobs and MB3.
