RB2 for Week 12? WHIR

Postby Drift Monkey » Mon Nov 21, 2011 7:51 pm

Mathews, Smith, or Tate?

Mathews has Denver...the same Denver that allowed McKnight a combined 121yds.

Smith has GB, should be a good matchup.

Tate has Jax, one of the tougher matchups.

Probably gonna roll VJax/Dez/Nicks again at WR/Flex, unless anyone can talk me out of it. Hard to sit VJax after this week, but he has champ Bailey next week...the most underrated CB IMO. Considering Rolling Smith/Mathews at RB2/Flex, thoughts?

I will go with Smith, because GB Def dont like RB, check when GB play with SD, Chicago and Min :-)
Mathews share with Tolbert, and they are up and down.

I think I would go with Mathews, even with Tolbert around he gets the majority of the carries and usually makes it worth while.

I want to wait another week to see if Smith is for real. Even if GB defense hasnt been good they have been good against the run and I dont think McCarthy will be worried about Raji's snap count this week and he is the heart of the run defense.

Tough to make the call on Vjax, even though he had a huge week he has not been good against great corners and like you said, Champ Bailey.

Thoughts on mine, some of the same questions.

Insurers, wait and see with smith. I say Mathews, and hope he goes endzone.

I would stick with Smith at RB2 and play VJax at flex. I do not trust Mathews against the Denver D that has played well as of late. good luck!

My choice got easier, Mathews hurt his knee again, so I'm doing Smith @ RB2 and VJax @ flex.

Thanks all! ;-D
