I would go with Hightower on this one ... I think he will be able to run easily on Chicago, especially for those inside the 10!

best of luck!

and thanks for the help!

i averaged out the rankings from 4 websites i visit (cnnsi, ff cafe, usatoday and yahoo)

and it has

best at 16 with high ranking of 12 and low of 19

greene is at 16.5 with high of 11 and low of 23

hightower is at 23.25 with high of 18 and low of 33

hightower seems easy to get rid of while best and greene better picks. best is the safest as he had the highest ranking and he faces a tampa def while green faces cowboys under an angry rob ryan.

best seems liek the safest pick in an offense that looks good early on while shonn greene seems to have more upside, but not much more than best.

personally i think best is the simplest choice with greene a second and hightower a far 3rd
please help with my team, WHIR

im thinkin greene and best dude, i have another team with greene on it, and ive been reading that he might go off. sanchez wont pull most of the weight, so im thinkin they might run quite a bit

Since it's the start of the season I think Shonn Greene would be the safest pick out of three followed by Best and then Hightower. Hightower's stock has been rising but I attribute that more to a weak offense in Washington than anything else. Best is an interesting back and a reasonable start as RB2 but personally I don't know if I trust him just yet.

Ya i agree hightower is out of the question. I would choose green with a slight edge but u should be fine either way!. I'm hopin best can start off HOT like he did last year until his turf toe injury GOOD luck!

Big on Hightower. I love Greene too, can't go wrong IMO, but gotta love that NYG matchup. Best just isn't an every down back, i expect either of the others to get more touches.

Good luck! ;-D I could use a thought or two...
