Pick 2 of these 3 RBs - WHIR

Postby tracyjesq » Sat Sep 08, 2012 4:49 pm

PPR League. Starting Chris Johnson and need to pick 2 of these remaining RBs - Trent Richardson, Ronnie Brown, and Kevin Smith. Right now, I'm leaning towards Ronnie Brown and Kevin Smith because I'm just unsure of how much TRich is going to get used in this first game. Thoughts appreciated and will help in return.

Kevin smith and Trent Richardson.

Eagles LB still are unproven. Richardson could break a big run.

I would go with T-Rich and Smith. Ronnie Brown will not receive a big workload, and he has limited upside.

I agree with Smith and Richardson. However the eagles d added a bunch of help this year. Should be a much better d this year. I also think the eagles win by 30.

K smith for sure.

And, I would probably favor brown over Richardson. I would have a hard time starting a rookie rb that has had 2 knee surgeries in the offseason who will be running behind a terrible o line. Not crazy about brown, but I like the matchup and intangibles better.

Thanks for the help.

Like Smith (as long as he's healthy) and while I don't like either of the 2nd choices, I would go T-Rich as I think he'll get the majority of the carries whereas Brown (regardless of what his Coach says) will share the load a bit.

Is this 3rd spot for the flex? If so, is there a WR you can use? Especially in a PPR?

Im going Smith and brown. T-rich should be every week starter soon, but I would wait and watch his knee. Unfortunately the browns offense should be putrid this year.

I am not sold on Brown. T Rich and Smith. Both should be good for a score and Smith should pick up a lot of clock running carries.

Good luck
Please help.
