Who to start at RB - WHIR

Postby Pl3onner » Wed Nov 30, 2011 3:19 pm

I have Turner @ Houston this week as my RB1. I really don't like the matchup but I don't have anyone else to play. Who would you start at RB2 out of these?

On my Team:
Roy Helu vs NYJ
Mendenhall vs CIN
Kevin Smith @ NO (Questionable at this point)
Darren Sproles vs DET

Waver Wire:
R Bush vs OAK
Green-Ellis vs IND
Pierre Thomas vs DET
Ben Tate vs ATL
Marion Barber vs KC
Peyton Hillis vs BAL

Also are any of these worth starting at Flex over Jordy Nelson (starter as of now), Dez Bryant or A.J. Green?

I can act on the safer side, I could take a loss and still possibly make the playoffs but I'm playing the last ranked team. I'd love some advice here, not just a name, but either way anything helps. May ask you questions, but I'll give thorough help back. Standard scoring, non-ppr. Thanks.

If your in a ppr league I'd go with Sproles, if nit I think that you start Mendenhall. I like Green Ellis match up vs Indy, but never sure what to expect out of NE rbs. Good luck.

I'd probably pick up BJGE and start him as RB2. I also might consider starting Sproles in flex over Jordy Nelson.

I like Bush off the wire. Tough match-up, but he's a beast and is gonna see a lot of touches due to the receiving corps being banged up. Mendy my 2nd option.

Help?

Do you think I'm talking about Michael Bush? That would be the obvious choice, but I'm talking about reggie

its a close call between mendenhall and green-ellis. cinci has the better D and NE does have questionable RB play. so its a risk either way. i think i'd go with mendenhall this week

Whoops- going too fast! I was thinking Michael but Reggie would still be in my top 4-
R. Bush- Oakland not so great against the run.
Mendy- scored twice against Cincy last time.
Matthews- has lost touches to Tolbert but is coming on strong now.
Green Ellis- super tasty match-up.

I'd probably roll with Matthews and Green Ellis.

Haha looks like you messed up again. Id def be starting matthews if I had him. Turner is my #1 option despite the crappy matchup. Thanks for your help though I may go r bush just for the consistency. Does no one like helu? He had the most carries of anyone last week. Also keep in mind as far as fantasy points go Sproles has the most this year. Let's keep it going.

Good lord I need to stop doing 10 things at once. Turner it is.

I really like what I've seen from Helu, but Shanahan is straight up crazy sauce. Ive been burned multiple times and refuse to play/recommend Skins RB's. I'd play Mendy before Helu, but am sticking with Turner/Green Ellis.
