Greetings all.

In one particular league, I need some help with my starters.

This week I have:

Steven Jackson
Frank Gore
James Starks
Ryan Torain

Which two get the start?

Ryan Torain and Frank Gore.

Although, mums the word regarding the Redskins backfield starter. If for some reason Torain doesn't get the start then play S. JAX in place of him. Otherwise, Torain and Gore should do you proud.

I could use some more opinions here.

The rankings seem to favor Gore here,

but against detriot I am still skeptical.

I was thinking starks and torain, or jackson/torain.

Anyone else have thoughts?

Like last week, if someone makes a solid case for one or the other, I will listen.

I like Torain and Gore.

Starks is sharing carries with Grant SJax is going to be shut down against a strong GB run D.

While the RB situation in Wash is up in the air (or so it seems), Shanahan drafted Torain back in 08, so their relationship goes back a few years. Helu is not ready to carry the full load and Hightower says he is healthy, but I am not so sure. I think we will see Torain carry the load with Hightower acting as the third down back and Helu as a change of pace option.

Because of the non-PPR, I would go with Torain and Gore. I think SJax will be leaned on heavily, but more in the passing game.

Best of luck.

Please help.

Ummm.... I would still go with S. Jackson and Gore. I know Jackson has a bad match up, but since he is involved in the passing game, he will still post more than 100 yard from scrimmage. Starks is in a timeshare and who knows which RB will be the main guy in WAS.

help me. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=503904

With Steven Jackson as my alternate. Still dont particularly understand the Gore thing, but by majority rule- let's give it a go ;-D !
