My RB Suck

Postby packerboy » Thu Sep 08, 2011 8:17 am

Hey Guys,

I did not get any RB studs at our draft. Who would you start in a TD league.
RB: R Grant, R Mathews, F Jones, F Jackson. M Ingram. Leaning Jones and Mathews.

Receivers (we use WR/TE for any receiver slot): G. Jennings, A. Gates, M. Austin, J. Maclin, and B. Edwards, and G Little
What is the status on Austin? Will start Jennings, Gates, and most likely Austin.

WHIR
Thanks
QB Romo & Cutler; RB: R Grant, R Mathews, F Jones, F Jackson. M Tolbert. & C Williams; WR/TE used as same: G Jennings, A Gates, M Austin, S Holmes, D Keller; Kicker: M Crosby. TD League-bonus-100 yds rushing, receiving, & 300 yard passing.

I think you have some great potential guys on that squad, I wouldn't hate on your RB. Your receivers are decent, though I wouldn't start Austin this week over Gates or Maclin.

Anyways, I rank your RB in this order:

Mathews, Jones, Grant, Jackson, Ingram.

I like Felix a lot this year but the Cowboys have a bad week 1 matchup in the Jets' stout run defense. I'm wary of Grant in tonight's game as I'm not sure how many carries he'll lose to Starks. Same goes for Ingram and Sproles/Thomas.

Help with mine?

Completely agree. ;-D

I'd start Maclin over Austin. I don't like Mathews as much in a TD league because I see Tolbert getting goal line carries, but I still think he's your best option.
