Torain is a must start. Detroit has a terrible run defense. Torain is coming off two 100+ rushing yard games, pencil him in for the start. Start MJD, simply because he is MJD. He is going to get 15-20 rushes and catch a handful of passes too. With Garrard back, it should open up the run game. It's a tough choice between Jahvid Best and Marshaun Lynch. I'm from Seattle, and the O-line is pretty bad now that 1st round pick Russell Okung is out again with an ankle sprain. As bad as the Raiders run defense is, I think you go with Best. If you look at Lynch's numbers, they haven't been all that great since joining Seattle, and he still gives up about a third of the carries to Forsett. I'd go with Jahvid Best here, Washington's defense isn't all that great either, and Stafford should open up the field for Best to run. Go with Torain, MJD, Best.
Torain, Best, MJD. They're all feature backs right now, and like someone else said seattle's o-line is pretty bad. And aside from MJD's matchup they're all really good, just hope garrard actually helps out mjd for a change. Thanks for the help with mine
I like MJD, Torain for sure....I'm leaning toward Best for your 3rd. I like Lynch, but after what OAK did against the high power offense of the Denver Broncos last week, I'm not sure if Seattle will be able to run the ball much is they are trailing.
I think it's best that is the odd man out here. Mjd is a must start and I like Torain against the lions, he's coming off 2 100 yard games and I think he will make it three this week. Lynch is the feature back and has oakland. You don't need a good o line to run on the raiders, and the Seahawks have looked like they want to feature him.
