Hey everyone, with Foster on bye this week I've got to make a decision between McGahee (vs. Jets), Jacobs (vs. Eagles), and Mathews (@ Bears) for 2 RB spots.
Here's some more information:
Jets are ranked 14th with most points given up to RBs this year at 19 points per game. They give up 109 rushing yards per game.
Eagles are ranked 6th with most points given up to RBs this year at 22 points per game. They give up 114 rushing yards per game.
Bears are ranked 26th with most points given up to RBs this year at 16 points per game. They give up 92 rushing yards per game.
According to rotoworld, the Broncos are now optimistic McGahee will play on Thursday night but do I start him with the risk he could get two carries and hurt himself again? If he starts, the Broncos will run all day and he will be the beneficiary. With Jacobs, he appears to be the feature back again this week and the matchup looks good on paper. With Mathews, it's a tough matchup by the numbers and he splits carries with Tolbert (although should see an increase this week). Mathews has the ability to get 8-10 points every week in fantasy because of his receiving skills but is probably the least likely to score a TD.
Need some help so let me know what you all think.
