RB bye week blues (desperate)...WHIR

Postby GeneralTsou » Sun Oct 14, 2012 8:04 am

12-team PPR

With Sproles on a bye week I have to start either Alex Green (GB) @ HOU or William Powell (ARI) vs. BUF. Not sure how carries will be divided in either backfield

Being that green will get some catches and McCarthy says he gets first crack...I start him. Powells line is awful even though it is the bills.

IMO, I would go with Powell. The Bills have one of the worst run defenses. The Texans have a good run defense, and GB will be throwing most of the game - Green is not an option in my opinion.

Best of luck

<--- Bills fan. Start Powell. I guess spending millions of dollars gets you one of the worst defenses in the league, ugh...

With Larod Stephans-howling getting the start and majority of the carries, according to Bealcher report, I would have to go with Alex Green. If he pulls through early, would be getting majority of the work. If he flops.....then you'll be struggling for even a 7-10 pt. fantasy game. Houston is a tough D, but GB is going to have to attempt to establish the run, or even AAron Rodgersw magic isn't gonna work.

Houston has a good run D, but remember that Cushing is now out. That's a huge hole for them to fill. I'd say to roll with Green.
