RB Help - Benching Jamaal Charles? WHIR

Postby Cheesypoofs73 » Wed Oct 31, 2012 10:15 am

My RB match-ups this week stink!
Plus I have no idea what KC is thinking all of the sudden, bringing in Peyton Hillis for Jamaal Charles (5 carries).
Charles was only the leading rusher through Week 5. "Hey, let's put in Hillis!" :P
Way to take responsibility & throw it on the offensive coordinator. KC just seems to be falling apart offensively.

So in light of that, thinking of benching JC over these 3...
Chris Johnson vs. Chicago (I know it's Chicago, but any given Sunday, right?) - also he's been averaging decent points the last 5 weeks & 1 week was 141 yds against Houston!>
Mikel Leshoure vs. Jacksonville (although they subbed in Joique Bell for some reason 4th quarter?)
BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs. Denver (he's been getting a lot of carries though, just not much yardage & no TDs)

I only have 2 RB slots & a FLEX, so I don't have to use 3 RBs - I have these 2 WRs available also...
Denarius Moore vs. Tampa Bay
Miles Austin vs. Atlanta

Help me out, and of course *WHIR*
Thanks to the guys last week btw, on my FLEX. :)

I think that i would stick with JC this week, also if i had to pick a number 2 it would be chris johnson. CJ2K is finally playing to his potential this year. if youre still hesitant to start JC i would say Leshoure is your next choice with a very favorable math up with Jacksonville. I like both of those wide outs in your flex spot, if it is a PPR league then you have to go with Miles Austin but if not then Moore is your guy.

please help!

Charles just has too much upside to consider benching.

Keep an eye out for news throughout the week regarding why he only got 5 carries, if nothing just roll with him.

I'd be fine with it, except I don't love any of your other options this week. If it were me, I'd roll the dice again with JC b/c he's the only one who could single handedly win you the match up.viewtopic.php?f=19&t=528178
