Jackie Battle?

Postby Vixen » Thu Oct 04, 2012 8:11 am

Would anyone start Jackie Battle this week?
My RB situation is all kinds of messed up
I've got Trent Richardson, Michael Bush, Fred Jackson, Mendenhall, and Battle

Im starting Trent and can't figure out who to start as my number 2.

Any help is appreciated

I like Battle, he's the starter now, and NO is last against the rush. He will get at minimum shared time against the Saints D, and they are giving up 186 yds/game. Enough to start him as RB2 even if Matthews takes some of his touches.

I don't think any of them are sure things, Battle probably has the best match up so I'd go with him but there is always the possibility that Mathews breaks out against a bad NO D

I'm starting Ryan Matthews. I have Battle on my bench. I think the coach was just punishing Matthews last week for all the fumbling he did in the previous weeks. I believe Ryan MAtthews had learnt his lesson and will start. I would use Battle as a flex option. That's just my opinion.

I am starting Battle, but I don't have much of a choice since 2 of my starting RB's have a by this week. He does have 4 TD's but he's likely to be hit or miss unless his new starting position gives him the majority of carries...should be interesting.

this is exactly what my boyfriend said and I believe it, but I don't have many options at RB , Fred Jackson is playing the 49ers, mendenall is coming off of knee surgery
so it pretty much comes down to Michael Bush or Jackie Battle and I don't feel very comfortable with either of them.

I see Battle and Bush with comparable numbers this week. That being said, I would probably go with Battle due to the matchup being extremely favorable. I could see 40 yard and a td from him.
