James Starks or Mike Tolbert as my flex rb?

Postby htan21 » Thu Sep 15, 2011 7:45 pm

2 QB Yahoo Standard Keeper League:
QB:Matt Schaub
QB:Jay Cutler
RB:Adrian Peterson
RB:Ahmad Bradshaw
WR:Hakeem Nicks
WR:Desean Jackson
TE:Jimmy Graham
W/R: DeAngelo Williams
W/T:Percy Harvin

DST: Detroit Lions
K: Mason Crosby

Bench:
QB: Kerry Collins, Blaine Gabbert
RB:James Starks
RB:Mike Tolbert (Recieved in trade for Matt Hasselbeck)
WR:Jimmy Knox
WR:Jordy Nelson
TE:Dustin Keller

Decided to bench DeAngelo Williams who has a horrible matchup with GB this week, who should I go as my 3rd RB, Mike Tolbert or James Starks? Green Bay doesn't run it as much but I'm thinking the Pack might blow the game wide open leaving Starks with some garbage time touches, so I'm actually leaning towards Starks at the moment plus NE run defense ain't half bad. Thoughts? Thanks!

The Chargers vs. NE game will be a shootout, which means tolbert will be catching a few passes but more likely than not, not running the ball as much.

While Starks is in the opposite scenario. The pack will probably blow the game open early on and will likely start running the ball more.

Since its non-ppr I think Starks is the better option

I would go with starks here. pack will be able to run on the panthers, and he should have plenty of scoring opportunities. but close call.

I would go with Starks. The packs looked good last week. Plus Carolina d is well less than desirable. I think you will see a decent amount of touches.
