Which RB will have a better second half? My league gives points only for TD's. Will Johnson share carries with Corey Dillon? More importantly will he be the goaline back? Please any comments are needed.

i like d. davis, he is the unquestioned #1 back there, and as good as rudi's been, corey dillon is a very good back

Double D has Tampa and Tennesse weeks 15 & 16. However, he has Atlanta and Jacksonville weeks 13 & 14. The weeks the playoff picture is clarified.

Rudi Johnson appears to be on a better team, and getting 30 carries a game can be nothing but beneficial. I'd take him over DD by a nose probably. The next couple weeks will clarify things.

Will Dillon take away carries? More importantly will he take goaline carries? Also, will Mack take goaline carries from Double d? I need to know your opinion ASAP!

I dont see Mack taking goaline carries off DD. He only took them off him a few weeks ago because he was injured.

DD has proved he can get the ball into the endzone himself.

Its a tough call as I have both guys. DD has been nice and consistant Usually a lock for 100 yards combined. I would take that from a number 2 back every week quite happily.

Johnson looks to have the ability to pull out a monster game though. Dillon will still be in the mix for sure but Rudi is proving a valuable FF player right now.

Either is a good option and it may be worth trading one of them off to strenghen another area.

I think a valid point is made with an emphasis on SOS. Davis has to run against NE, Jax, Tampa, and Tenn. Davis has yet to prove he can run on anything but a sieve for a defense. His 100 yard games have come against the Jets, Indi, and Cinci. He does not have an easy schedule. Make no mistake about the Jags, they give up oodles of points but only one 100 yard rusher this year (S. Davis).

You've heard it here first. D. Davis is going to be a real poor play down the stretch.

I can't shout praises for Rudi yet either, except that he's had a ton of yards the last 2 games. Maybe he's getting into his groove but he hasn't exactly pounded on any defenses worth noting. I think he's shown more than Davis and he can probably be said to be on a better team. His schedule isn't a softie either here on out. There is that concern that he'll share carries with Dillon or that Dillon will start over him when he's 100% (according to Corey).

I probably wouldn't use either of these guys if I could help it. If I had both, I'd probably play it by matchups or if you can't decide and you know both will start, I'd probably go with Rudi.
