Gore has been injured lately and has a tough matchup on the road. Lynch has been serviceable, and WAS is an average run defense. JAC's defense has been pretty good and Tate is the number two RB on that team. I know he's had big days in the #2 role, but that's risky anyway, especially since they have a backup QB now. They'll likely try to run more, but defenses know that two, and will probably play eight in the box all day, making running difficult, at best. Smith has talent, but he's bound to be targeted by a good defense after his big game.
Beanie Wells [knee] (@STL) is currently available, as is DeAngelo Williams (@IND). Should I add one of them and start him? If so, who should I drop?
Thanks for your help...leave a link and I'll return the favor...
EDIT: Beanie is no longer available. EDIT 2: D Williams is no longer available, either. EDIT 3: Sorry, I'm an idiot. I need to start TWO of them. Thanks!

I personally like Gore or Lynch here. Although Demarco Murray for the Cowboys couldnt seem to get much going on the ground vs. Redskins last week, doesnt mean seattle wont but ya never know. I think you have to go with Gore here. Ravens are hit or miss. And usually you would start Gore over any of the other RB's you had mentioned.
Thanks for the help. I'd go with Gore and Smith. The 49ers will succeed as far as Gore takes them and the Ravens run defense has been getting beaten up the past few games. Smith should have a decent game against the Packers, but don't expect last weeks numbers. Lynch would be my 3rd choice, but the Redskins have held D Murray and R Rice under a 100 yards the past 2 weeks. Good luck!
