if SJax plays, start Cadillac anyway?

Postby scottaa1 » Mon Sep 19, 2011 12:02 pm

So I drafted SJax, and we all know that with SJax comes weekly injury concerns. I picked up Caddy after Jackson left the game last week. With Jackson listed as a game time decision I"m really hoping they just let him rest, give him another week to rest the hammy. BUT, if they do decide to start him, I wonder if it would be smart to start Cadillac anyway? In case SJax runs a few times and is taken back out for tweaking his leg.

paranoid second-guessing, or safe thinking?

I have SJax sitting on my bench with Caddy starting if that helps your decision at all.

He went from "will be out a few weeks" to "game time decision". I grant you he's a beast that plays through injury, but Caddy did a good job filling in, and I think that the Rams will not want to risk hurting SJax worse. I doubt he runs at all tonight.

It's similar to the Foster dilemma yesterday. He ends up playing, doesn't do much, aggravates his injury, and Tate gets all the work.

I would start Cadillac. Jackson might play, but it won't be many series if he does. I think Jackson just wants to play because the Rams haven't been on MNF in a decade.
