RB options WHIR

Postby Bigpop » Fri Sep 14, 2012 11:20 am

Hey all. In one of my leagues I have a small log jam at RB. I can start 2 RB and 1 at flex, so I can get 3 of the 5 in. I just can't decide who to bench. What do you think?

Det. Smith
NE. Ridley
Stl. Jackson
Cin. BJGE
Bal. Rice

So the obvious pick is Rice starting. As of this minute I have Ridley and BJGE as my other 2. That leaves Smith and Jackson out. I'm not so caught up about Smith, his production probably goes way down this week and moving forward. But Jackson is a number 1 guy who is gonna get all the caries/reception out of the backfield. I'm not sold on Ridley producing at the same level as he did last week, all year. But can I risk not playing him when Jackson didn't have a great game last week? It's a nice problem to have but man, I just can't decide.

Well of course Rice no. 1
Then I would go with BJGE....playing a horrid Cle. Defense. Then, I would go with Ridley who has the better matchup in my opinion! I guess your scoring format may help to fine tune it or adjust. Like in a PPR, I like Jackson better than Ridley!

Thanks for the feedback, apologies about forgetting the scoring, it is a normal scoring and NON PPR league.

Like you said Rice at no.1 no questions.

Ignore Smith since hes playing that 49ers run D. Hell I'd ignore almost any RB against that D.
Start Ridley, I like what he did last week against the Titans and I'm fairly sure he can do it again against Arizona.
And also start BJGE, I like his match-up against the Browns over Jacksons match-up against Washington.

I agree. Rice, Ridley, Law Firm. Jackson close but they will get behind and abandon the run.
