Who to start @ RB for week 1? WHIR

Postby ken12580 » Mon Aug 27, 2012 1:36 pm

BJGE (injured foot) @ Baltimore or Pierre Thomas vs. Washington? I also have Roy Helu (bad achilles) @ NO and Jonathan Dwyer @ Denver. My RB1 is Ray Rice. Kendall Hunter, Evan Royster, Ronnie Hillman, and Daniel Thomas are available.

12 team PPR special teams yardage league.

Thanks in advance!

I would go with the Lawfirm.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

Pierre Thomas has the better matchup defensively.

Ravens are 3rd overall defense against the run, Washington is 17th.

Even with the gimpy wheel and tough matchup, BGE is your best play on talent and playing time.
Thank God for Football Season.

Neither will yield you many points, but thomas has the best possibility to do so.

I would go with Green-Ellis. He's the only RB on your list who isn't splitting significant carries. Pierre Thomas splits a lot of carries in a pass-heavy offense. Roy Helu is coached by Shanahan, who's known to be fickle with RB touches.

When you get the chance:
