I like Starks over Felix, and also Meachem over Burleson may be another move to consider if Lance Moore sits again this week. If not, I'd leave Burleson in there. Tate won't be worth much since Foster is expected to return.

I dont see benching Felix. He did good against allot tougher Defense last week. To me the question is what to do with Beanie/Starks.

I'm in the same boat but with Fred Jackson in the mix. If I were sans Freddy J I would start Starks. He looks to get alot of garbage yeards as the Packers are likley to score early and the game will be out of hand meaning both Grant and Starks will chew up Yards. Beanie will likely do well but the Carolina D is just so bad.

I'd definately do Starks, and probably take Wells over Felix this week. I got caught up in the Felix breakout hype and have now decided to just wait until he actually looks like he might be somethiing more than 12th best RB before I think the hype might be right.

I'm not sure I follow your logic on Felix. 12th best numbers on an RB 2 sounds about right esp against the Jets. I do think Beanie is a consideration but just dont follow the logic as to why your voting felix down and Beanie up. Please ellaborate.

I think Felix did pretty damn good considering the match up. Also Starks is said to get more carries this week and Im sure the 2nd half of that game GB will be running the clock............Starks and Felix are clearly the better options.
