RB Help Week 14

Postby JMTrio » Thu Dec 08, 2011 2:09 am

As usual, I am having trouble deciding who to start as RB2. My RB1 is Lynch.

8 team league, win locks up a playoff spot, probably #2.

Pick 1:

Mathews @ Buffalo
McGahee vs Chicago
Helu vs NE
M Bush @ Green Bay
Greene vs KC

I have been loading up on RBs since I spent half the season ravaged by injuries!

Which one, and why?

I would go with Mathews, feature back and has the best matchup.

McGahee may be hurt and has a rough matchup.

Bush is probably going to be dealing with McFadden coming back this week. Not a great matchup against Raji and Co.

Helu plays on a bad offense and chances are they will be behind and throwing a lot to keep up with Brady.

Greene, is well Shonn Greene. Even though he gets the carries it typically doesnt go very far.

Help on mine?

Still trying to decide. M Bush vs Green Bay seems like a good matchup, but I worry that they will get behind and abandon the run.

McGahee is tempting since the Defense will be more worried about Tebow, and most likely will be on the field all day, wearing down at the end of the game.

Shonn Greene is coming off a MONSTER week (30 pts! in my league) and goes against the Cheifs...

Mathews is the Chargers #1 back, and they're fighting to get into the playoffs. With all their recievers back, I can see them scoring early and getting ahead, letting him run a lot. Downside is Tolbert gets the TDs.

Lastly, Roy Helu looks to have an awesome matchup, and with the tight end out on suspension, they gotta throw to somebody, and he gets a lot of carries and passes.

HELP!

Thanks for the help with mine.

I'd go with Matthews. He's getting the majority of the touches over Tolber and has that break away ability. I feel it's the best match up you've got. Good luck!

Go with Mathews..I'm tempted to say Helu but they will have to throw and that's a roll of the dice as to Helu getting a lot of action in the passing game. Mathews at least will get the touches.

Help?

Thanks for the help. I am tempted by helu but I think Matthews has the best matchup. Hopefully Tolbert won't steal the goalie carries.
