I get starks, have to give up hightower.
I have Ray Rice, Shone Green, Ingram, M Lynch as my other backs. Non ppr , standard scoring.
Watching that game I saw Starks on the field an awful lot. Looked faster, stronger and smarter then Ryan Grant. In that high powered offense no one will pay attention to starks and I think he will get some average yards, coupel catches and the occasional TD. He is out on third down and seems more intune with the passing game. Seems good for a backup. But I worry about Grant getting his legs and taking a bigger stake in the job.
Im not sold on Hightower. I think he will put up solid backup numbers against easy defenses. I just worry that the whole offense will not be good enough to put Hightower in good situations or they might be down in many games. Shannahan is known for mixing it up and we can just as easily see Helu or Torain be the main back for a few weeks then back to hightower.
I do not feel either are very special players, and I feel similar about what they can do. All things being equal I am leaning toward taking Starks becasue he is on the better team. Have to decide tonight, and with my luck hightower will go off tommorow.
Also, if I keep hightower. Who do you think is the better start. Hightower or Green.
