Who to Start tonight- Greene or Thomas?

Postby calecalo » Mon Oct 17, 2011 3:25 pm

I'm driving myself crazy here. I'm tied w/ my opponent who has B. Marshall going tonight. Non-PPR league, standard scoring. I have 1 RB slot left, and Greene and Thomas available.

Greene's last game was encouraging (83yds rush, 1td), but his season and the Jets Offense overall has been SERIOUSLY suspect this year.

Thomas has looked great this year... when he's been on the field. If he was healthy and a guarantee to get the majority of carries, I feel like he's the choice hands down. But no guarantee how much he'll play/if he'll injure himself again.

It goes without saying that I need a win pretty bad this week... So who puts up more points than Brandon Marshall tonight??

Shonne Greene or Daniel Thomas?

Any help at all is much appreciated. Thank you.

I would say start Thomas if he plays. He's been doing quite well and the Jets are bad against the run.

I would start Greene either way. I think he's the safe play. (just threw up in my mouth)

I appreciate the feedback, guys... but it pretty much highlights my dilemma. One vote for Thomas, one for Greene.

I think the "New (possibly terrible) Miami QB", "stout Jets Defense", "Jets playing at home" and "Continued Thomas Injury Concern" have led me to a place where I'm going to start Greene.

And yes... realizing that I'm pinning a fantasy Win/Loss on the shoulders of Shonne Greene just made me throw up in my mouth, also.
