RB Help Please! WHIR

Postby TJRLSU » Sat Sep 17, 2011 5:20 pm

PPR league

Felix Jones @SF

or

Frank Gore vs Dallas

Constantly going back and forth, I am leaning towards Jones b/c of the matchup and receptions expected. Please any input, the more the better.

Leave a link, I'll help ya.

Hmm.....kind of a tough call, but I think I would go with Felix as well. Gore didn't look so good last week. Good luck! Thoughts on mine please:

Felix Jones.

Usually I don't condone sitting a guy you surely took with your second round pick, but the 49ers offense was stagnant against a poor Seattle Seahawks defense in week one. Additionally, in two career games against Dallas, Gore has totaled only 68 yards rushing and 11 yards receiving with no TD's.

San Fran's offense will get a little better as the season wears on, and when you have a great alternative like Felix Jones, you can afford to let Gore ride the bench for a week.

They both get rec...Last week Gore had 22 carries for 59 yrds 2.7 yards per carry and 3 rec for 19 yrd.
Jones had 17 carries for 44 yrds 2.6 ypc--he did have a TD though. also had 3 rec for 22 yrds...I'd say its pretty close but DAL has more weapons in there passing game than SF does so more of a chance for Austin,Witten,or Bryant to score. I'd go with GORE.

Good point with Gore being THE guy on the offense as opposed to Jones sharing touches with Witten, Austin, ect. I am just afraid of DAL putting 8 in box and Gore continuing to struggle.

I need some more input PLEASE!

Hey I think Felix with Dallas..just a bigger threat with a bigger offense...I dont trust anything San Francisco does...esp its offense...hope this helps

How about your thoughts..
viewtopic.php?t=497271
Jacobs vs the Rams

Tolbert vs Pats

Woodhead vs Chargers

Turner with ATL is my first back...i need a second back and just cant decide..i would go with Tolbert but for some reason Jacobs at home playing vs the Rams is catching my eye and Woodhead with Brady always seems reliable

Any advice??

As you will see from my question, I am not a felix believer. SF was 6th against the run last year. Gore will have a better game this week than last, I would think anyway.

I would go Gore, but I'm biased.

I am going with Gore for this one. The only one that will get close to 25 touches. GL

Even though Tolbert had a huge game last week, and your expectations for this week cannot be that high, I still like him this week. He will definitely get A LOT of touches, and you can't say that about Woodhead or Jacobs.


You guys have me leaning towards Gore after making some good points about his workload and SF rush defense.
Any more input would be GREATLY appreciated.

Yea Man gotta go with Felix here, they way I see it, who has the worst defense?
I think Dallas will go up quick in this game and then run the clock, whereas SF will have to revert to the passing game to catch up... PPr or not, id go with Felix

So much easier this year without Marion Barber in the picture
