WHIR! RB HELP!

Postby ilovedapats » Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:51 pm

Starting Matt forte at RB1, but who to start at RB2???
This is a PPR league.

Michael Bush vs. IND: I know that IND is terrible and there may be enough to go around, but I have Marshall and 3 bears is a lot to start.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis @ BAL: No suggs, lewis is older, reed is older and new team for BJGE that feeds their RB's in the redzone. Last year Benson had 2tds in one game vs the Ravens but didnt go over 51 yards rushing either time. So confused over this play... I start BGE weekly with no hesitations, but the Ravens are so good defensively.

Rashad Jennings @MIN: Regular season game may be faster than preseason for Jennings. Everyone says he had a great preseason, but I can name a ton of guys this year and past years that had good preseasons and it didnt translate to the regular season. If he starts off bad I'm scared MJD is the horse before the second half especially if the game is close. Jags would be stupid to turn on their franchise player for wanting to get paid.

Last option I have is to play two of these guys. One at RB2 and the other at my FLEX position over Desean Jackson.
I do not think this is so smart, but if you persuade me otherwise I am not against sitting D-"DUD" from 2011...haha

Would you start Bush if your didn't have the other two bears? If so, then give serious consideration to starting him here. Obviously he will get the same number of points. Unless you are worried about the entire Chicago team washing out....

Otherwise start Jennings. He should have good numbers this week.

PPR makes this a bit of a tougher choice, IMO. The way I see things in Chicago is as follows. Chicago will use Forte in order to get those yards, however the heck they can. Whether it would be the run game, or the passing game. Once they're close enough to the end zone, out will come Bush and smash it in and get the touchdowns. I really don't see him gaining any yards, so it seems a bit of a risky play. However, this risk is offset by the fact that Indy is horrible, as you said. This could mean two things: Forte will be able to punch in the TD's or Chicago will be more inclined to use Bush a bit more in an effort to keep Forte safe from injury. Seems like a risky play to me still.

On the other hand you have BJGE, whom I think will actually get a few looks through the air to ease Dalton's job a bit, since they are playing Baltimore after all. They've historically had a great defense, but with those aging players, and no Suggs, I don't know, I'm not convinced they'll be the same D they've been in the past. Cinci has no qualms with running the ball near the endzone either, so it seems like an appealing choice.

TL;DR: Bush could get points but seems risky, BJGE seems safer.

I would personally go with BJGE, but wouldn't blame anyone for taking the risk on Bush.

I would have to go Law Firm here. I kinda have a feeling that MJD gets at least half the touches, so I'm not keen on starting Jennings. and, I couldn't start a backup over, a starter like BJGE even though it's ppr.

thanks on mine.

I'd go with BJGE solely because he is the starter and will get carries no matter what.
Wouldn't expect anything special, but hopefully he gets a few receptions out of the backfield, 50-60 yds and a GL opportunity.


Help me out with my week 1 TE?

Law Firm. He is in line for a lot of carries with Bernard Scott banged up and Brian Leonard only a 3rd down back. Plus he will get those red zone carries.

Don't really like any of them week 1, but I think you have to go with the starter. He's going to be in there with the most chances to break one. I agree with the others .. go with the law firm. GL

Help?

Thanks for the help on mine. It's between BJE and Rashard Jennings. I would roll with Jennings b/c the match up is nice and last that I heard, he's going to get majority of the carries.

Edit: Might I add that this is the reason why you got Rashad Jennings in the draft. For his value in the beginning of the season.
