Hightower or Daniel Thomas WHIR

Postby dilhan » Wed Sep 21, 2011 4:15 pm

.5 ppr

Hightower vs Dallas
or
Daniel Thomas vs Cleveland
or
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.

Although Thomas may seem like a great start after his recent solid performance, I’d still go with Hightower. I think he is due for some solid weeks ahead.

Thanks very much for the help on mine!

I'm in the same boat, decided to start Thomas over Hightower. I think Thomas has a better chance of getting into the endzone than does Reggie Bush, a bit risky but more risk more return.

Also, Hightower against Dallas Defense makes me bit uneasy, especially after Leader Tony Romo played with a punctured lung, no excuse for that defense to under-perform now.

I'd go with Thomas. Both split carries, but Thomas is coming off a good week and Hightower gave up a lot fo carries and yards to the young Roy Helu, who I am high on. Thomas well get more "between the tackles" carries with Bush getting more receptions.
