Internet opinions basically have the two as a wash, does anyone have a compelling reason to start one over the other? Leave a link.

I'd go Jahvid. I think he'll get quite the load this game, they should be up a decent amount and should be running it quite a bit. Vikings run DEF isn't all that great anymore.

I'd go with Tate because it's a standard scoring league. Otherwise I would've said Best.

Please help with mine!

I would go with Best here. NO is good against the run, plus I'd see it being a more aerial high scoring affair. Tolbert and Matthews gashed the Vikings in the screens and dumps that suits Best.

Good luck!

Tate is the man here. This is the first week where he is going in as the main guy. Ward was week one and Foster week two. Look for over 100 and a score

Thats a tough, but good situation to have. My first thoughts were Best all the way...Best is just a monster in PPR leagues especially after seeing what Mathews and Tolbert did last week against the Vikings. But seeing as its a non-ppr Tate looks a tad more appealing. I mean, 2 straight 100 yrd games is hard to ignore.

non ppr, I'd go Tate, he's the guy getting goaline carries. Best had one rushing TD last week, but the Lions tend to throw in the redzone, so IF he does get a score I imagine it will come through the air. Best is much better in PPR, Tate will get all the carries with either Foster or Slaton spelling him from time to time. I'd imagine Tate goes 100+ again and is more likely to get a score then Best. If you have bonuses for reaching certain yardages this also would favor Tate.

That's really tough ... I lean towards Tate slightly though, especially non - PPR. That should be a high scoring game against the Saints and I'm sure Tate will be involved heavily.

Help me out man?
