Starks for sure. He's already established himself as the top back to own in their backfield. The Bears have also been giving up a lot of rushing yards the first 2 weeks. And Beanie may not even play.

Help me out man?

I'm not sure I'd call Seatle's Run D stout..

that being said, I agree, you play starks, he's healthy. I think Chicago is a bit tougher run D but Starks is healthy and Beanie is banged up.

help with mine?

I'd go Beanie, he's ranked second in Football Outsiders DYAR (first in DVOA), the Cards o-line is ranked 1st, and I can't imagine that Seattle's abysmal offense will be making this game any sort of contest.

Starks. Beanie is a game-time decision. He hurt his hamstring in practice. Even if he does play there is risk. Starks for sure

Starks is the safer play

Beanie has the most upside


I'm leaning towards Starks since hamstring injuries are never good for a RB.

If not for the injury I might have said Beanie. But with the "game-time decision" status, I would play Starks.




any help would be appreciated
