Torian, Starks, or Morris? WHIR!

Postby Weasel_King » Fri Oct 21, 2011 1:57 am

Managed to snag Torian and Morris off waivers, now I have to decide between one of them at the Flex.

Ryan Torian @ CAR-Great matchup, but RB situation is very uncertain in Washington
James Starks @ MIN-Poor matchup, would probably conisder Starks the "safe play" for some guaranteed points, hasn't topped 11 points all season though
Maurice Morris vs ATL (assuming Best is out)- Intriguing play if Best is out, will most likely get majority of carries with Best out and proved last year he could fill in decently with Best out. Although, he has had a grand total of 9 carries so far this year and would say he is the least talented out of all the backs.

Which 1 would you start in a non-PPR league?

Thanks for the help on mine. I would go with Morris. It is pretty much a guarantee that he will get most of the touches out of the backfield. I have heard some rumors about Keiland Williams stealing short yardage touches, but that should only be an issue if they end up first and goal at the 1. Torain has a bigger upside, but who knows who will get the carries for the Skins against Car? And I had (up until recently) the other half of the Starks/Grant debacle in GB. They are both worthless as GB passes entirely too much for either guy to have value in that timeshare.

thanks for helping me out....

i agree with the guy above morris will get the majority of the carries. GB doesn';t have a run game really and with washington you never know how much of an impact hightower and helu will have on torain....

i agree with above posters

morris is the featured back this week where as torain and starks are in RBBC althoough i'd rank torain higher as he might actually get carries whereas packers RBBC hardly gets any

go with morris for this week

Was leaning towards Torian, after your responses ended up starting Morris, good call on that one ;-D So far Torian is 2 carries for a grand total of -5 yards.
