I start 2 RBs, NO FLEX. I'm already starting Ray Rice. Who should I start?
DeAngelo Williams: Still listed as Questionable. The Panthers have already noted that JStew will likely get the bulk of carries regardless of DeAngelo playing or not. Even if DeAngelo plays, will he be productive?
Marion Barber: Still listed as RB1 but has been splitting carries to two other backs. GB has a pretty stout run defense too.
I'd have to say Barber too, they're playing Green Bay, they may pass it a lot but Barber should still do pretty well. Unless they make it sound like DeAngelo is going to play, play well, and get most of the carries, I'd start Barber.
Williams is the most attractive play, but his health is a major concern. Barber has a tough match-up in GB, but I think he still puts up consistent numbers. 70 yards and a TD are there for him. Not sure you can say that Williams will do that for sure. Roll with MBIII.
if you want to play it safe, go with barber. he is still the preferred back but will share the workload. i dont think choice will get much work, the bigger concern is jones. but he wont get you huge numbers so if you need a win this week, roll the dice and go with dwill.
i have a similar issue as i am a deangelo owner...i am contemplating on switching him out for lynch as captain checkdown is back for the bills.
