Had BShaw/Hillis for RB2..Need another option now.WHIR!!

Postby futbol57102at » Sat Nov 05, 2011 3:27 pm

The title says it all. I'm in a nonPPR standard scoring league and am deciding between the following players to start at RB2 this week. Assuming you like Battle as the best option, please choose your 2nd best option, as I might not be able to get Battle.

Battle(clears waivers Sunday AM, so I might not be able to get him)
Ogbonnaya
Ringer
Any Colt RB [Addai,Brown,Carter] (not even clear who will play here :( )
Faulk (might not play? Hasn't practiced last 3 days)
Knowshon (looks like mcgahee will play so probably not a good idea)
LT
Starks
DJ Ware (right now it looks like Jacobs gets majority of carries if BShaw can't go

Also, if BShaw decides at gametime to play, would it even be a smart move to play him?

Thanks for your help-Leave a link and I'll get back to you.

Battle would be your best option, but since you'd have to wait then I'd go with Starks. He gets more carries than Grant and has been the better back of the two. I think he's the best option.

Ogboyanna - Risky fantasy option. Haven't even seen him play.
Ringer - I don't expect Chris Johnson to rebound, but if he does, Ringer would lose nearly any value he had.
Colt RB's - I don't like any of them, but Carter is the best option of the three.
Faulk - Law firm and Ridley.
Knowshon - Nothanks.
LT - See Greene, Shonn.
DJ Ware - Gamble play.

I would choose Ogbonnaya over Battle, Ringer or any Colt RB. Reasons are two-fold. Browns can't rely on Colt's arm to win the game so Ogbonnaya will get his carries. Plus, as a UT grad I saw him run, he was never the featured back but always a hard runner and got a lot of goal line carries. Figure that he's worth about 80 yards and a TD tomorrow.

Help with mine?
