Help! Which Redskins RB do i start??? WHIR

Postby nkgangew » Sun Oct 16, 2011 12:59 am

About half of my team is on bye this week, and because of it, I have to play my Redskins RBs. Now because I own Hightower, I also picked up Torrain. I'm going to be starting Torrain at my RB2 spot. However, should i start Hightower at my flex or Helu at my flex. Yes, these are my only 2 options. At least i know that one of them will have a big game, and ill be playing 2 out of the 3 Redskin Backs.
Hightower seems like the obvious pick, HOWEVER, his injury report STILL lists him as Questionable. Also, there's reports that he's currently in Shanny's dog house. However, he's they're best 3rd down RB.
BUT, helu has been known to run well when he gets his touches, which seem to be 5-10 a game. So my question is, should i play Helu over Hightower because of Hightowers injury status and because he's in the dog house? Or stick with Hightower in case the injury status is a ruse and incase he wins back his starting job.
Leave a link, and ill help in return!!

Ouch, what a decision. I think you still have to go with Hightower and Torain to have the best chance of a big game. Both have demonstrated they can do it when given the touches. Helu has to some extent but Shanahan hasn't given him the opportunity.

Two quick ones: Pick 2, Pick 3

Even though there is no "official" statement naming a starter for the Skins this week, I have almost no doubt in my mind that it will be Torain. Hightower participated in a limited portion of practice on Thursday and Friday. He's still recovering from a shoulder injury. So Torain is gonna be the guy.

Beyond that, I don't think anyone but Mike Shanahan knows which is why I would avoid Helu & Hightower both. There's gotta be a better play on your waiver wire. I am sure of it. You're considering a change of pace back to start... Trust me, go to your waiver wire for a better option.
