Which RB to start? - WHIR

Postby thebirds » Wed Sep 07, 2011 11:51 am

Not sure which 3 to start, obviously depends on if Foster can play, but right now I'm thinking Foster, Forte and S-Jax

Pick 3 from the following:
Foster (vs. IND)
Tate (vs. IND)
Forte (vs. ATL)
S. Jackston (vs. PHI)
Hightower (vs. NYG)

League is 10 team, standard PPR scoring

Thanks!

Foster if he plays, if not Tate (I actually have Tate stashed on my bench in hopes Foster goes down at some point)

Forte - I think he is going to be hungry this year since he is in a contract year

and I like Hightower in Shannahans zone blocking scheme and for the fact that SJax is up against Philly with their nasty Defense!

thanks for your help

Here's how I would rank them:

Foster (if he plays) - he tore up Indy last year, so if he's playing, you can't sit him
Forte - is a factor in both the running and passing game, and usually stars the season well
Jackson - still the focal point of that offense
Hightower - for now is the #1 back, but who knows would could happen
Tate - even if Foster is out, there is still Ward to worry about in that backfield

It's a tough decision between Jackson and Hightower, but Jackson has more potential to make an impact as a receiver. Hightower might be more likely to score a TD. I'd say go with your gut on this one.

If you get a chance, help me out:

I would say Foster is your best choice, then Forte. Its closer between Jackson and Hightower but I will go Jackson who is still important in the Rams offense. good luck!
help me please?
