There's an added twist to my decision this week. Calvin Johnson is, by all accounts, playing, but after getting burned last week I'm a little wary, especially because he's playing in the late game. If I start Slaton or Moats, I can keep JMac in reserve in case Calvin can't go. But if I start Maclin and he's a late scratch again, I'm screwed (and I don't even really have anyone on the bench worth dropping).
So I'm leaning toward one of the Houston backs. My instinct says they'll give Slaton another chance to win his job back, though there's always the risk that he fumbles again. But I'm also not sure if I can really extrapolate much from Moats' performance vs Buffalo. I mean, it was Buffalo.
