I would go Slaton, the Jets are missing two key components on their defense due to suspension. Haynesworth worries me for Jacobs. I would want to see how carries are shared in Bal before I would start Rice over either of these two.
Def go Jacobs in a non PPR...Slaton will miss out on goal line carries and like the previous guy said Rice (who I love this year) isn't a guarantee yet until we see a few games. Take Jacobs and the win.
Slaton was going in the first round in a lot of drafts, and suddenly everyone is down on him again because he might not get the goal line carries? When will this guy get some respect? Anyway, I think its a closer call than most people here and you should feel good that you could go either way. I think Jacobs might be a better bet for multiple scores and you might as well use him while he's healthy (then trade him if Rice starts getting hot).
