Strategy question - My RB against his D, does it matter?

Postby mh34444 » Wed Sep 24, 2008 6:39 pm

Just to be clear, this isn't a sit/start question.

I'm reaching to my bench for an RB2 this weekend. One of my options is Thomas Jones, but the guy I'm playing against will play the Cards D (ARI @ NYJ). Does the high risk/high reward matter when playing my O-guy against their D-team? Or would this scenario make you consider playing someone else if the projections are similar?

You always play the best player available. Don't worry about it if he has the D. Doesn't matter.

To put it simply, no, it does not matter.

Thomas Jones isn't a guy you'd want to sit anyway.

Go with him and hope he runs wild against that D so your opponent gets even less points. ;-D

Not a factor. Start the guys you think will score the most points. The opponent's lineup shouldn't factor into your decision.
