RB Help for Week 1! WHIR!

Postby jm968859 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 9:22 am

Hey so here is my dilemma- need to start one of these guys. Standard, non-ppr.

Toby Gerhart v. JAC
Adrian Peterson v. JAC
Michael Bush v. IND

I have Ryan Mathews on the bench (obviously hurt) and I am starting Rashad Jennings as my other RB...What do you guys think? So tempted to start AP but I know he won't see much action. Thanks!

Toby Gerhart for sure. He's the starter and will get the highest swing of touches.

Wait and see with AP ( I have him too) and Bush is a handcuff/desperation play.

Help with my WR dilemma?

I think i'd go with Gerhart until you see for sure AP is back. They will probably bring him back slowly and conservatively when they do.

I think you have to go Gerhart even if Peterson plays. The Vikings will probably play it safe with Peterson and limit the number of carries he has and Gerhart will still get enough touches to put up decent numbers against the Jags. I do believe Michael Bush will get some carries inside the 5 yardline and will at least get you a TD if not 2 but I think the safer play would be Gehart even if Peterson plays.

Gerhart without a doubt. AP will maybe get a few touches but they'll be taking it slow with him
