This is the only roster decision that has me scratching my head a bit. The scoring is PPR - otherwise pretty normal. I can only start 2 RBs. This season is frustrating, because without fail every single week I bench my RB that ends up having the best day. Which 2 would you pick?
McCoy (vs WAS) Forte (@ NYG) Bradshaw (vs CHI)
I also have Jahvid Best, but I feel very comfortable in planting him on my bench this week and not worrying about his injury status. And his matchup (@ GB) isn't so hot either.
So far, McCoy is my favorite ... seems like a reasonable matchup, and hopefully Reid will get him more touches. But I don't know what to do with Forte vs Bradshaw. Forte has the better matchup, but Bradshaw is the better RB. Though it is PPR - any RB can score well if they get half a dozen dump-offs and/or screens.
What do you think? Leave a link and I'll do my best with yours.
I would go with L. McCoy and A. Bradshaw. I think L. McCoy will benefit from an extremely favorable match up. The other two are close, but I think A. Bradshaw is the safer play, as he is no longer losing any carries to B. Jacobs. M. Forte's production really seems to depend on how he is utilized in the passing game.
I'm on the Forte and Bradshaw wagon. I think McCoy is going to get lost in a blood game against WASH and McNabb. Forte is Martz's new Marshall Faulk and this is as good as any game for him to see a bunch of looks. Bradshaw will be running against a bend-don't-break DEF, so whether or not he gets in the end-zone (he will), he'll still put up some nice yards.
