Who's the best running back out of these options?

Postby rocks dojo » Tue Sep 13, 2011 10:09 pm

I'm in a league that names only starters (no bench) and need to replace Steven Jackson next week. Which of these players would be the best option while Steven Jackson is out?

Cadillac Williams
Mike Tolbert
Cedric Benson
Tim Hightower
Fred Jackson

Caddy looked good in relief and I'd go with his teammate. You kinda have to remember they will rely heavy on him with Bradford banged up and Amendola gone.

Tolbert is the goal-line back for a high powered offense, so he'd be my first choice. Then probably Hightower, Benson. That's if you're looking long-term, if you want a short term fix....Tolbert, Caddy, Hightower, Benson. Hard for me to buy Buffalo after one game, but F-Jax is no slouch either tbh.
