RB2: Peterson, Gerhart, Green-Ellis. WHIR

Postby smoothitron » Sun Sep 09, 2012 10:57 am

8 Team, standard scoring except TD = 6 and INT = -2

QB - Matt Ryan
RB - LeSean McCoy
RB - Toby Gerhart
WR - AJ Green
WR - Brandon Marshall
TE - Tony Gonzales
W/R/T - Steve Smith(CAR)
K - Jason Hanson
DEF - Baltimore
BN - Adrian Peterson
BN - BenJarvus Green-Ellis
BN - Antonio Brown
BN - Reggie Wayne
BN - Miles Austin
BN - Robert Griffin III


Heard it on ESPN that Peterson will start over Gerhart, and the word seems to be that they will split carries rather than Gerhart getting the majority. Green-Ellis has the job to himself, but has a poor matchup this week.

Who would you start? Leave your link and I'll try to help.

It is a coin flip between Gerhart and Peterson. I would lean towards Peterson.

I'd definitely rule out Green-Ellis against Baltimore. I do think they'll ease AP back in, so maybe roll with Toby.

I have the same issue on my team and I'm benching LawFirm and playing Gerhart. It's a calculated guess but I feel like they won't press AP week 1, and Baltimore Def isn't all world anymore but still really tough

I'm personally playing Gearhart over Peterson. I don't like that AP hasn't played in preseason, and 10-15 carries feels like they're just giving him work to get work.
Here's mine, if you can help.

wow...I really really can't see AP getting anymore than 8-10 touches today. I'd roll Green-Ellis regardless of the matchup. Both Gehart and AP I'd avoid like the plauge today.
