RB help. Torain or Graham

Postby Vincent Gabriele » Sat Oct 15, 2011 11:05 am

I'm in a deep league with ppr. So I've been playing Ernest Graham almost every week because I haven't had great depth at running back this year, and he catches a lot of balls out of the back field. I picked up Torain after his big game, much like a lot of you.

This week Graham is going to get the bulk of the touches with Blount out. Torain is coming off a big game and will most likely start and get the bulk over Hightower. I think the upside might be higher with Torain, but also he is probably going to be hit or miss.

Graham vs. New Orleans & Torain vs. Philly

What do you think? Thanks a lot.

I think your read on the situation is correct. So it think it comes down to your matchup vs your opponent if you feel you are equally matched then i would go with the more sure thing in Graham. If you feel you are out matched and need a homerun type performance then go with Torrain.

Help with mine?

I agree with the honeybadgers. If you are looking for a safe play then go with Graham, if you need the upside play (with the Shanahan risk) go with Torain. Torain could have a huge week, or he could watch the whole game. I am leaning towards a huge week. Shanny has loved this guy since they were together in Denver. I think he always looks for a reason to play him.

Good luck.

Please help.
