2 of 3: CJ Spiller, Chris Johnson, Doug Martin

Postby galacticat » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:38 am

I am fortunate to have these 3 backs, but it's a tough call this week on which 2 I should start. I think I have to go Johnson vs. Jacksonville no matter what. I'm leaning Doug Martin over CJ Spiller since Fred Jackson may vulture in the red zone. Then again, Martin could be less effective if TB is playing from behind against ATL. Thoughts?

Not only could Fred vulture scores from Spiller now that he's back, but Spiller is also listed as questionable.

I wouldn't worry about Martin: he's averaging about 24 carries per game. You will get production out of a guy like that. Much like Arian Foster in Houston and Adrian Peterson in Minnesota, Doug Martin is a guy who won't ever be ignored, even when Tampa Bay is playing from behind, because he's always one cut or one missed tackle away from breaking off a homerun play.

I agree that starting Chris Johnson against Jacksonville is a solid move.

Start Johnson and Martin.
