Are you starting Mendenhall?? WHIR!!!

Postby Bronco_7 » Thu Nov 15, 2012 9:08 am

Daniel Thomas vs Buffalo or

Rashard Mendenhall vs Baltimore

If Mendenahall is healthy he would be my choice. They say he is going to play but I need to decide today as Daniel Thomas is playing Thurs night.

What would you do??

Yeah but I am wondering how much Thomas is going to play with Reggie Bush getting carries. Any thoughts? That is why I am leaning Toward Mendenhall!

yeah he will split carries but goal line is all thomas. mendenhall will be splitting carries as well though so its a double edge sword. maybe flip a coin?

I actually have Mendenhall on my flex (currently). May change it, but it's quite intriguing.

In the same boat with Thomas kinda. Go with Thomas in this case, healthier of the 2 choices.

I just posted same question!!! I am leaning towards Thomas as a "safe" choice. He's getting goal-line carries and has more touches than Bush the last two weeks. Oh and yes he's playing vs the Bills. Not sure how the carries will be split for Mendy, Redman, and Dwyer either. That being said, I'll be ripped if Mendy has big game!!!

Well that didn't work out so well!!! Apparently the Bills now have a stifling run defense!! Thats why you just can't read too much into matchups!! Just play your studs!! I should have started Mendy :-P

I went the other way. Given Thomas' crappy track record I benched him for Mendenhall's potential. Looks like a good decision!
