Ugly RB2 decision.... WHIR

Postby freshlesh » Wed Aug 29, 2012 11:00 am

1pt 10 yd rsh, 1pt 15 yd rec, PPR, 6pt any TD. 3pt bonus over 100yd rsh or rec

They way my draft worked out left me with a strong team, but with a weakness at RB2. I drafted a bunch of backup/low end starting RBs hoping that one of them will start for me by the middle of the season. My top two choices for RB2 are Cedric Benson and Peyton Hillis. Normally I would start Benson, seeing as he is going to be the starter for GB to start the season. But they are playing SF and that can be a daunting task for any RB. Hillis is splitting carries, but he is going up against Arizona, so his fewer touches may be more productive. What do you think?

Also, on my bench I have: Donald Brown, Jacquizz Rodgers and Mikel Leshoure (suspended two games).

Thanks for your help. WHIR

I would start donald brown knowing he will get touches and could get a good few dump offs with the rookie QB. Otherwise hillis is more likely to me to get in the end zone than benson. Just my opinion.

I've been considering Brown. I could see Luck dumping it off to him four or five times. Great for PPR.

By chance is Dwyer available to pick up? If he is I would pick him up and start him.

However, if he is not available you should start Hillis.
