RB2, Richardson or Jackson? WHIR

Postby Fuqyu » Wed Sep 26, 2012 12:12 pm

I have an issue at RB this week, albeit a good one. I have Fred Jackson, who has a "70 to 75 percent" chance of playing, according to him, and I have Trent Richardson. Who do I start this week? Richardson is in the Thursday Night game against the Ravens, while Jackson plays on Sunday against New England. Is it worth taking the risk on Jackson this week, or do I just keep riding Richardson?

League is Yahoo standard scoring, non-PPR.
My other RB is MJD, so I am assuming he is a must-start until proven otherwise.

I'd say play Trent Richardson, they may start off Jackson slowing sharing touches with choice. YOU KNOW the browns are going to look to give the ball to Richardson as much as possible even receiving if the ground game isn't panning out

I would keep Richardson in this week due to the fact that Jackson is just barely coming back from the injury and will still be slowed from it, and they'll be playing new england so there's a good chance Buffalo will have to be passing most of the day to keep up. For this week, I'd go with Richardson.

T. Rich, you don't want to go through the "oops, I'm sitting our and/or only getting 5 touches" type of game coming off injury.

Richardson, even if Jackson is back he may not get many touches

Id roll with Jackson. I don't think richardson is going to do anything this week vs baltimores d. He's already had a couple of dud games as well

Richardson..... no doubt. Browns have to use him as a workhorse to stay in this game.

Help me out ? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=522835#p3471412
