You would be better off picking by process of elimination. You definitely don't want to play Addai. You DO want to play Hightower. That leaves Foster, Gore, and Wells. Get rid of one of them and play the other two. Gore has no timeshare and a favorable matchup. I think you gotta put your faith in him this week. Wells has no timeshare, the matchup isn't great, and he has a bad hammy. Foster has a timeshare, a terrible matchup, and a bad hammy...lol. All signs point to Wells.

Hightower
Gore
Wells

I think Hightower and Gore are your sure bets here ... and I would actually take the gamble on Foster, he should be back pretty good by now with all the rest, and even though he will most likely be splitting carries with Tate, I guarantee you he is going to play his ass off to make sure he holds on to that #1 RB spot on that Texans offense!

Just keep an I on his reports during the week to make sure there are no setbacks.

Best of Luck!

Help a brotha out …

Thanks for help with mine.

I'd go Gore, Foster Hightower.

I think Foster is going to be 100% this weekend and Joseph Addai just rang them up for decent yards and a score. Foster has upside there.
Likewise, I would start Gore on the premise that you never bench your studs and even though he's had a slow start, Addai and Beanie ain't studs. HOWEVER, keep an eye on how he practices this week and see what the situation with his ankle is. If it's not good or sounds bad I would go with Addai vs. Tampa. Not great but I do not trust Beanie Wells. He's injury prone and the Giants have chewed up a lot of players lately.

HIghtower is playing the scRams aka the worst run defense in the NFL. He will probably lose a lot of carries to Helu, but he should still put up some numbers.

Gore vs PHI
Foster vs PIT
Wells vs NYG
Hightower vs STL
Addai vs TB

Hightower for sure, good match too
Foster against PIT and has been sitting for quite some time...i'll
Gore failed me bad for 3 weeks already, i personally won't put him on
Wells have hammy issue, but no one to split carry with him, and his injury is minor
Addai is doing great when whole IND offense is failing apart, and pretty much have Addai run the whole game (see IND vs PIT weeks)

i'll actually start Addai and Hightower, then pick one out of Foster/Gore/Wells
i'll definitely not start Foster yet, and whoever is confident enough to start Gore can start him, as for me, i prefer Wells

so my picks will be Hightower/Addai/Wells
but Wells/Foster/Gore is pretty much the same to me, pick either one to start with Hightower/Addai


you do have every nice RB selection
