Ray Rice VS J. Charles who to take???

Postby mciv » Tue Aug 23, 2011 8:10 am

I have the third pick in a 12 team non PPR. I have to draft in 4 days and if CJ signs I might take him. However, if he is still out I don't even want to deal with that situation so I want to know if I should take Rice or Charles? I have had Charles for the last 2 years and he has been good but he has a tough run schedule and T. Jones is still around. Rice should get all the work but I am still not sure any help would be great.

I hope/expect big things from Rice this year. I don't know where I pick in any of my drafts but I am hoping for the 4th position so I can take him in a couple leagues.

This is with Chris Johnson holding out...but Pop quiz first!

In your opinion, off of the top of your head without doing any quick research, who has the better O-Line? KC or Baltimore?

I would bet most people would say Baltimore does but look at the Stats below after comparing Charles and Rice. These stats dont lie and thats why I have Charles above Rice. I think he's simply the better RB

1. AP - he's All Day, no one has proven that they can claim the #1 title yet

2. Foster - I read somewhere that he had a higher YPC without Leach in front of him

3. Charles - he's going to get more touches this year, 230 att @ 1,467 yds (6.4 avg), 5 TDs + 45 rec @ 468 yds, 3 TDs , and he's going to get more TD's this year. This guy is an animal and KC needs to let the leash out a little further

4. Rice - Im still not sold on putting him any higher, he had every opportunity last year and he didnt produce at the level Charles did. Charles is a better back in my opinion. 307 rushing attempts @ 1,220 yds, 5 TDs (4.0 avg) + 63 rec @ 556 yds, 1 TD

Such a tough call. Look at the schedule and Charles wins even though I like Baltimore's offense and Rice as a RB better too. I'm hoping CJ signs tomorrow and looks good in whatever preseason action he gets so I can take him instead...
