Pick 2, Murray/BGE/Doug Martin?

Postby nobodeuno » Thu Sep 27, 2012 7:39 am

Having trouble...gut says go with the matchup which leads me to BGE/Martin but Murray is hard to bench as he's been pretty consistent even though he's not blowing up. Any thoughts?

The only thing is BGE is running against a Jac def that is giving up 3rd most points to RB's...Of course they did face Foster/Tate & Peterson in their first two games...

Id go bje/ toss up between Murray and Martin. Both have tough matchups. The skins seem like a cake D because they give up so many points, but they are only allowing an average of 75 yards per game to RBs. Gut says go with Martin though. I'm trying to decide btw Martin and Williams (v. Miami and wells is out), any thoughts? Good luck.

Thanks...gut says don't sit Murray but he's hard to start against the bears but then again they really haven't been tested against a good running back.

I am thinking you should go with Martin, there is a chance that Williams goes off but given the lack of history and his so so performance last week I'd go with the more reliable Martin...however that is just based on stats, I haven't seen Williams run recently so if you feel he is running good then its fair to go with him especially given they are likely to get ahead quickly and run the ball a lot...

I would go Martin no question and IMO the other one is a toss up. I'd personally lean towards BGE for two reasons. One, he has the better matchup. Two, I'm a cowboys fan and with Jason Garrett as our play caller it seems like we never truly commit to the run (which is beyond stupid but that's another story). At least you know that if the Bengals get into the redzone, or get up early in the 2nd half they will commit to feeding the Law Firm the ball.
