Torain or Battle for flex start

Postby dayblade89 » Sun Oct 23, 2011 8:43 am

Standard 10 team yahoo league

R. Torain @ Carolina
J. Battle @ Oakland

leaning towards Torain against the bad Carolina run D. Any thoughts appreciated.

I think Battle is a better start. Torain was "suppose" to have a solid game last week and we saw where that got us... I dont know if that was a fluke or if that run game is worse then we thought

Now Battle gets a full load in KC against a forgiving OAK run D. His coach has already said they are committing to a feature back and Battle is the guy.

Hightower will be the starter leaving Torain in a limited role. Battle will be the feature back so he is the better play.

I really do not trust any of Shanahan's running backs, but Torain might be a better start than no productive battle.

Battle is already confirmed to get bulk of carries against a bad run defense. No idea if Torain/Hightower/Helu will get the bulk against Carolina. Go with the sure thing

Last week was an anomaly. Torain will have a superb day . . . . 120 total yards 1-1/2 TDs

Dont leave him on your bench.
