Ridley or Tolbert? - PPR League

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Sat Oct 08, 2011 10:15 am

Which guy should I start this week:
Ridley vs NYJ
or
Tolbert at DEN

My other starting RB is Fred Jackson but I need to get points from this RB since my best WRs are either hurt or on bye week.

Thanks.

If its PPR I definitely go Tolbert. While not getting touches in the run game hurts him, he's still been fairly consistent for me in my PPR league, as he gets goal line and passing downs. While Ridley was a good pickup, let him show you that he's going to produce like that and that it wasn't just a fluke. Espeically in a shared backfield

Lend a hand?

Ugh I have to make the same decision myself this week...I'm rolling with Tolbert and praying he gets in the end zone, as I think that SD looks to give Denver a heavy dose of the run this week with a shaky V. Jax and no Gates...

Although one could make a perfectly good case for starting Ridley as well...

I have those two too on one team...my problem is I don't have Jackson, I have Mathews. Since you only have one SD RB to worry about, I'd go with Tolbert. (I'm half-tempted to start em both TBH) Especially in PPR they should both have nice days. Ridley needs a couple weeks to sit on my bench before I start him. i have a feeling eh may supplant BJGE and become useful later, but I'm not ready to rely on him yet, especially with Tolbert in such a nice match-up. Good luck! ;-D

Can I get a couple thoughts on mine? 8-o

Since its a PPR, I'd go Tolbert. Ridley will get some carries and should do well this week, but he has a low chance to score. Brady is keying in on Gronk and Welker in the red zone and with Hernandez possible to play, I dont see many chances of them punching it in from the 2yd line. Likely to see them scoring from the air before getting close enough to run it in. Maybe i'm biased as a Pats fan though ; )
Good luck!

Help on mine??

Thanks for help on mine.

I think you have to go with Tolbert here, and wait on Ridley to see if he actually produces for a second game. Good luck.
