Fred Jackson or Mendenhall??? WHIR

Postby rclement3915 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 7:15 am

Ok so I have Ray Rice / Mendenhall/ Jackson / F Jones.

Rice is the obvious start, but should I roll with the hot Fred Jackson this week??
Or should I hope that Medenhall can finally breakout vs a pretty bad Colts D?

PPR scoring.

Thanks and leave link(s) and I'll gladly respond.

Tough to bench Freddy, but NE is better against the run than the pass, and Mendy should get at least 20 touches against the Colts.

I'd go Mendy here. I think that the Bills will be playing from behind pretty early, so that would limit Jackson's touches. On the other hand, the Steelers should be up 50 to 3 by the end of the first quarter, so Mendy will get a touch, and then another, and another, and so on and so on.

F.Jackson did help me win 2 game straight, but as flex.
just to be safe, start Mendenhall.

2 weeks performance is good indicator, but not definite, week3 should really show us if F.Jackson can be new top10 RB of 2011.
Mendenhall has already proved he is RZ runner with 2nd most TD in 2010, and it's against Colts.

i think most people would love to have a problem like this.

EDIT 2010 instead of 201, typo

Haha yea, I'm def not complaining.
Both teams have given up #'s to the RB position in both weeks so it's a tough call

I'm thinking mendenhall. Patriots are going to be able to stop the run this week I think.

Help me out:

I like Mendenhall here. The Colts are notoriously bad against the run and the Bills will need to pass to keep up with the Pats offense. Expect Mendenhall to score big in garbage time when the Steelers are up 30 points in the 2nd half.

Def go with mendenhall here...against an unsure week colts teams and the bills will most likely be playing from behind so they'll be asking fitzpatrick to play catchup with his receivers.

help with mine? :-D
