This is pretty easy imo:


Look for Pittsburgh to bounce-back in a HUGE way against SEA, the Steelers' unfortunate future whipping boy whom Blitzburgh will undoubtedly take their aggression out on in a "statement" type game; mendenhall SHOULD be a big part of what the Steelers attempt to do offensively, and we already know what Mendy is capable of when PITT has the lead or is in a close game (1 score ahead/behind). Rashard IS STILL Pittsburgh's bell-cow and that won't change any time soon, I'm predicting that they take the SeaHags out behind the wood-shed and give them an old-fashioned ass-whipping.

With SJax side-lined, I like Caddy's chances at hitting paydirt and gaining somewhere in the 75-100yd realm, a feat that Hightower was able to achieve in an emotional week 1 victory against the G-Men, a defense that is STILL hurting with a mediocre secondary (no Prince) and a depleated pass-rush (No Osi or Tuck yet, at least). The new-look Rams no employ that spread patriot-style offensive scheme, and assuming Bradford is healthy and will play on MNF, Caddy looks like the Ram's main ball-carrier in an improving offense...

...meanwhile, Starks still plays for GB, a pass-first offense, and an offense that is attempting to ease veteran RB Ryan Grant BACK INTO the flow; Starks will at best share carries with Grant, and eventhough I believe that Starks will end up with main RB duties by mid-October (or perhaps sooner), it's just too early to give Starks the nod over Mendy or Caddy, especially this week.

I would rank them:

1. Mendy
2. Starks
3. Caddy

Mendenhall is in for a big game, that looks pretty obvious

I pick starks over caddy because Starks was on the field for nearly 3/4 of the GB snaps, CAR rush D gave up a huge game to B. Wells of all people in week 1, GB will be up big early, gonna pound it late.

Caddy. St.L is beat up bad. yes, Hightower had a decent game agaisnt NYG last week, but he averaged well less than 4 yards per carry. I don't like Caddy nearly as much as everyone else this week.
