Hightower vs Dallas
Daniel Thomas vs Cleveland
James Starks vs Chicago
My starting 2 backs are turner and mccoy, need to select a flex option. Normally I would go with Hightower here, but I'm worried about Helu taking away his carries.
WHIR of course
both of your other backs split carries also. i think you need to play the defensive matchups in this situation and get the RB most likely to see the red zone touches. Dallas stuffed Gore but i think that was more a function of the ineptness of the Niners. (Niner fan) but they also held Green & LT to under 50 yds. Hightower will get the touches and looks. i think Shanahan is gonna try to grind this one out. hard to sit Hightower. he still had more touches last week than Starks or Thomas even with Helu's 10 carries.
all that said, i would start Thomas over Starks & Hightower. Cleveland's run defense stinks. based on last week he will see more carries than Starks. my worthless 2 cents. good luck. viewtopic.php?t=498271
