Starks vs Hightstower??

Postby snixx79 » Tue Sep 13, 2011 11:54 am

12 team H2H, standard yardage pool, 6 pt all tds.

I own Brady and am looking to trade Freeman for an RB. I have LeSean McCoy starting, but have Moreno as my RB2 and not much behind him. McGahee is already owned, tho i may be able to sneak him away in another deal. Question is, for Freeman, would you rather have Starks or Hightower? Or are either of those guys enough for Freeman? The guy that i am trading with has Bradford and Colt McCoy as his QBs at the moment.....

Id def go after Hightower without a doubt over starks.

Hightower is the lead back for now, and Washington actually runs the ball.

1. I personally think Josh Freeman is worth a little more than Starks or Hightower but not by a whole lot.

2. Starks is a RBBC, he's splititng carries essentially with Grant which is never a great thing.

3. Hightower is getting a full workload at Washington.

4. Overall I think Starks may be slightly more skilled and is also going up against a bad Carolina D but he's splitting carries and Hightower is also going up a fragile Arizona defense. The safer bet is Tim at this poin. Unless of course we hear something from Shanahan saying hes tired of Tim or some news on Stark relating to him getting more of a 65/35 split or at least the starting spot may help make Starks a better play.

I'd take Hightower over Straks right now for Freeman. Hightower is the main rb there and Starks will be splitting carries all year with Grant. If it is a keeper league then I may lean towards Starks for next year when Grant is gone. Good luck.
