Too many RBs! Agh! WHIR

Postby Mizou » Tue Aug 28, 2012 9:01 am

I have a lot of good choices for RB, but no clear-cut RB1 to start. Help me out, please.

Both are non-PPR, standard scoring. Team 1 takes into account return yards.

Team 1: Doug Martin, Kevin Smith, Toby Gerhart, Rashad Jennings, David Wilson. Choose 2.

I'm liking both Gerhart and Jennings to have good work replacing AP/MJD, but Martin is the "better" pedigree. But he might split with Blount. Kevin Smith is the clear-cut starter, but will the Lions run it enough to make it worthwhile? Wilson... is just behind this week.


Team 2: Isaac Redman, Kevin Smith, Toby Gerhart, Darren Sproles, Michael Turner, Beanie Wells, BJGE. Also choose 2.

Thinking Redman, since he'll get the work, and has run on Denver previously, and possibly Gerhart. But again, too many RBs that are all kinda similar in their matchup/abilities. BJGE, Wells, and Turner aren't being looked at currently.

Please help. Will WHIR.

Are they PPR or standard leagues? Without knowing that Ill give my best advise.
Team 1:
Martin and Smith, if its non ppr I might start Jennings in place of Martin seeing as Blount is likely to get goalline carries.
Team 2:
PPR - Sproles and Smith
non - Turner and Redman, if lawfirm is not healthy I would go with Smith.

Hopefully a few of these guys produce and you can use em as trade bait after the first few weeks. ;-D

My bad. I could've sworn I put that info in there. Might've been a different thread. Original post edited with the info.

Both are non-PPR leagues, with Team 1 taking into account return yards. Standard scoring.


Also, why Turner over the rest? So many are down on him and his abilities/workload this year, it's making me doubt him. What are your thoughts?

He is on a high powered offense and will get goal line duty for sure which in a non ppr drives his value way up. I like him alot in non ppr leagues still. Sure he is on the down side of his career but will still be top 10-15 rb non ppr.

IMO
Team 1: Kevin, Martin (Carolina gave up the 2nd most fantasy points to Running Backs last season, and TB do not want Cam has ball :-) )
Team 2: Michael Turner , and depend on week one injury report list, you can choose who K Smith or I Redman.

For Team 1 go Martin and Smith. Martin has won the starting position and the signing of D.J Ware means that they are probably looking to trade Blount, Witch means more goal line carries for Martin. Also he has a favorable match up against Carolina who were ranked 31st last season against the run. Mikel Leshoure is out…Jahvid Best is out…As long as Kevin Smith is healthy (and all reports are that he is), he will have a big day against a St. Louis Rams defense that allowed 152.1 rushing yards per game in 2011 as well 17 TDs.
