RB Desperation! Battle, Woodhead, or Johnny White :-( WHIR

Postby CSimmsSU » Fri Nov 25, 2011 2:09 pm

12 team PPR.
Well Fred Jackson going to the IR has devestated my run game. I have Blount as my RB2 and bench consists of:
Hillis
Johnny White (maybe not this week since Spiller will start but see some potential here down the road)
Jackie Battle (against Pitt)
Danny Woodhead (against Philly)
My lean was with Battle but KC just doesnt score and against Pitt, I don't see Battle getting more than 30-40 rushing yards. Woodhead is potentially my next best option and hope for a couple carries and some receptions, maybe a score. Thoughts?
Trade deadline is past, Hillis remains out, and absolutely nothing on the waiver wire.
Thanks and post your link and I will responsd.

Based on it being PPR I would go Woodhead. I do not trust Battle going against the Steelers and I think White is too risky. good luck! ;-D

u gotta go battle, atleast hes the starter and will get the touches.. woodhead is good for 5 carries and a catch or 2 so your hoping he gets a td, which he has yet to do so far this season.. yea battles matchup sucks but play the odds. he should get more yards and possibly a td with the 3 - 4 times more touches than woodhead.

and definatly not white, but hold onto him for when spiller goes down

Tough spot, no doubt. But Woodhead may end up with 4 touches. Battle will at least see alot more than that and Pitt run D isn't what it used to be, can't trust White yet.... ;-D

If DJ ware is out there pick him up. Bradshaw is out and he should give you more points....

I guess you have to go with Battle as he'll probably see the most touches but last week he split carries evenly with Jones and Mcluster. Once the chiefs fall behind Mcluster most likely will be in for most of the snaps. Woodhead and White are too risky although I wouldn't be surprised to see White get a fair amount of snaps when Spiller starts to struggle.
