TE, WR, RB NEED HELP beating the Ruxin

Postby grumpymike » Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:56 pm

You know the guy, the loud mouth conspiracy free agent theory guy? We're both 8-2 in a 12 team league in different divisions. Everyone wants me to beat the "Ruxin" to shut his mouth. My problem is mostly at RB but I'm starting to overthink my other 2 positions. This is standard (non- PPR) scoring. We start 1 QB 2 RB's 3 WRs 1 TE 1 K 1 Def.

QB Peyton Manning
RB1 Doug Martin
RB2 ???? (James Starks, Chris Ivory, Isaac Redman)
WR1 Calvin Johnson
WR2 Eric Decker
WR3 ???? (Torrey Smith, Michael Crabtree)
TE ???? (Jason Witten, Greg Olsen)
K Connor Barth
Def 49ers

My conundrum and original thinking:
RB-I was liking Ivory until Sproles playing. I'm thinking Starks now with the RBBC in Pittsburgh???
WR-Torrey Smith seems like a no-brainer but theyre saying he stinks on the road. Crabtree? He's been playing good...
TE-This shouldve been easy with Witten but now Olsen is hitting his pre-draft capabilities.

(I have Lynch as my RB1 on a bye this week)
Please help me beat Ruxin.
Thanks in advance,
GrumpyMike

I'd go Olson at TE, TB pass defense is TERRIBLE. Starks at RB, and definitely Smith over Crabtree. Chicago defense will shut him down.

Sorry for the short answers, but this is my last post of the evening:

RB2 - Ivory (but it's VERY close)
WR3 - Smith (Crabtree too unreliable)
TE - Witten (go with the hot hand)

Hope yer doin' a nice Shiva blast by Tuesday morning! BEAT THE RUXIN!

G'night and G'luck

I can't comfortably disagree with that. I feel there is enough argument to go around for starting either Ivory or Starks.

Starks will be getting a majority of the carries against a good run D. While you cannot expect too much, you never know what Rodgers will donate.
If the 49ers move Crabtree around the formation he will find success. If not, it will be a long day.
Witten is Romo's bro. No Romo on that one,,,
NOW GO SHUT "RUXIN'S" MOUTH!
