Can you ever Bench Ray Rice?

Postby joheshy55 » Wed Nov 23, 2011 12:08 am

heres the scoop, if there is ever a chance to bench Number 1 RB would this week be the week. SF has not allowed a rushing TD all year. Im in a 12 man auction Dynasty league and we start 5 key players.. 1-3 rb, 0-4 wr, 0-4 te .5 ppr 1 point per 20 rush/recieve yards.
heres my list of players to choose from and can i afford to bench rice?

Rice
Foster
Blount
K. Smith
Maclin
Plax
Decker
M. Williams-TB
Laurent Robinson
Jason Witten
Vernon Davis

Thanks for the input.

Not entirely sure how the league works. So basically you pick the five best players? In that case assuming Maclin doesn't play I would go with:

Foster
Rice
Witten
Blount
Robinson

With the players you have to choose from I don't think you can afford to bench Rice. Thanks for the help with mine.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I'm not sure how your league works, either, but I wouldn't bench Ray Rice. Yeah, SF is #1 against the rush, but they've had the softest schedule in the league when it comes to rushers. See the "Defense Analyzer - Week 12" for details: viewtopic.php?t=509107

The last chart (Rushing) shows SF (SDF) as #1 against the rush, but the number in the far right is the toughness of their schedule so far: 32.

SF will not go all year without allowing a rushing TD. Ray Rice is a stud. You gotta start him, regardless of format.
