Id start by saying you should shop 1 -2 of these RB's for a top QB, WR, or TE (and a lesser RB) than can make a difference for you. You literally have 5 starters like you said. Guys on the bench = zero points and having to choose each week makes it tough to start the optimal lineup. By trading 1-2 you will make the decision easier.

If you stay put Id start Gore, Run DMC (pitt injuries), Morris. The reasoning is Gore should do well at Minny, Run DMC is your #1 and eventually he will get into gear, and Morris because Wash should be up in the game and might pound out a lot of yards. Ridley and BGE vboth have players potentially coming back that can take carries from them (Vareen, and Scott)

I'm in a similar situation with Ridley and BJGE...at the moment I'm going with Ridley because he is the more talented runner. I really don't know about the matchup...in the past I would have benched Ridley right away if I saw he was playing the Ravens. But so far this year, the ravens run d hasn't been the best and both BJGE and McCoy had pretty good games against them.

help with mine?

Go with Ridley. Patriots finally have a solid RB that they are running. I don't think Vereen will see much action.
