RB - LJ vs. SD RB - Maroney vs. TB TE - Olsen vs. Cin
I would totally start Maroney this week. I saw on cbssportsline that S. Morris is not on the plane to London. Though if it rains before the game, I would have no qualms about starting LJ. The last couple of games in london, if the ground becomes a muddy pool, NE will pass a lot.
i go with maroney as well, after 2 RB´s got hurt in front of him, he finally gets the start
10 Team League QB : Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger RB : Cedric Benson, Jahvid Best, Darren McFadden WR : Randy Moss, DeSean Jackson,Mike Wallace, Demaryius Thomas TE : Vernon Davis, Brent Celek K : Rob Bironas, Dan Carpenter D: San Francisco , Tennessee
LJ has been unreliable, and Olsen shouldn't start over either of em. Maroney could have a decent day against that horrible tampa defense. however, starting maroney is always a risk. if you absolutely need a few points and can't take the risk, maybe go with LJ.
Maroney (because apparently Sammy Morris is hurt too. If he's not, then I no longer like Maroney) Olsen (he gets all the RZ looks, pretty much. I think the Bears are going to score on the Bengals too... a lot) LJ (I hate LJ and I don't try to keep it a secret. I wouldn't even have him on my team).
This is funny...I picked up Maroney in my league to fill in at FLEX because of bye week for 2 RB's and had him in my roster but just dropped him to pick up Olsen (my TE has a bye next week). The more I thought about it I couldn't get myself to trust the NE backs and Belichick and put Ocho in at FLEX. That being said on the surface it seem like a good idea to start Maroney and may work out big time but........ LJ is getting all the red zone touches ad might be a safer more conservative choice. Good luck in whatever choice you make!
