2nd RB position help WHIR!!

Postby oe14203 » Mon Aug 27, 2012 9:53 pm

I am trying to decide between AP at home v. Jacksonville or Reggie Bush at Houston for week one. I'm just not sure with AP's reduced workload to start him or if it would be wise to change my first thought of Bush. Thanks y'all

You're sort of screwed either way.

In Bush's case, he's facing the Texans, which have the 2nd overall ranked defense vs rushing, on top of the fact that any opposing team knows that he is miami's only real offensive weapon. They're going to stuff him.

If AP were 100% he has the better matchup (jacksonville is ranked 9th overall against the run), though not by much, and he's going to be limited in touches.

Overall, you're not looking at a great matchup either way.

Who are your backup RB's? Even if they are less productive overall, they probably will gain you more points for week 1 in this case.

Yeah that was kinda what I was afraid of...my #1 RB is R. Rice, obvious starter. My #4 RB is P. Hillis or I could get Rashad Jennings, but really not looking to start dumping people on week 0!

If Rashad Jennings does in fact start over MJD, he has the better matchup against the Giants as opposed to Hillis against the Falcons.

Even when factoring in short yardage/red zone (which hillis would be handling), the giants (against jennings) are the better matchup.

Honestly it all depends on MJD in this case. If he starts and is going to get touches, you'd be better off with Hillis, if not Jennings.

Keep in mind, in the worst case scenario, if MJD starts, Hillis won't be worth much against the falcons run defense, but 5 points is better than 0.

I'm honestly liking Jennings off the WW to be your starter. However, he's against Minnesota, not NYG, as someone said. Either way, if MJD holds out, Jennings is the guy. AP is still kind of gimpy, even if he plays, and Hillis is the change-of-pace and red zone guy.. not worth as many points.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=516658

Jennings is the week 1 starter in JAX, pick him up!

AP vs R. Bush? R. Bush for week 1. I would be surprised if AP gets more than 10 touches in week 1. He went through a major knee surgery late last season.

Jennings all the way. How is he even on the waiver wire? Roll with him until this MJD thing is worked out.

Help me?

pick up Jennings. If you don't get him off the WW then go with Hillis. Like him to get the short yardage and goal line touches. Bush has tough matchup and AP is a NP until we see him at full speed
