RBs: Rice, Leshoure, BJGE, or Rodgers? WHIR

Postby curtk » Thu Nov 29, 2012 7:58 pm

League info and roster are in my sig.

I think I know what I'll do, but would appreciate any advice. Leave a link for return help.

I have to choose two RBs of these four:
Ray Rice vs PIT
Mikel Leshoure vs IND
BJGE @ SD
Jacquizz Rodgers (plays shortly - probably not a consideration this week) vs NO

Rice is a must-start, even with the tough matchup.
Leshoure's matchup isn't bad...IND has allowed the 13th most points to RBs.
On the other hand, SD's given up the 13th fewest points to RBs and BJGE has only been good with a good matchup this year.
I like Rodgers and his matchup is great! NO's given up the 2nd most points to RBs. Although his role has increased the last couple of weeks, I'm not sure he'll get enough touches to start over the others. Plus, I just realized he plays tonight (about 1/2 an hour from now), so there's not enough time to get much feedback.

Please rank them and leave some rationale.

Thanks!

I like Rice and Leshoure here.

Leshoure has slowley been picking it up, I think 2 TD's back to back weeks, and Colts have given up 100yd rusher last 7 weeks I believe.

I'd start Rodgers over the Law-Firm and Leshoure but Mikel could surprise with a few TD's, which seems to be the only way he can produce consistently as he has a paltry 3.9 YPC

I almost started Rodgers over Leshoure last night. Whew. Dodged that one. Now I still have to decide between Leshoure and BJGE. I've heard that SD has injuries to their defense that would benefit BJGE. What do you think between these two for RB2?

I could drop Rodgers for another RB, but there's not much out there to choose from. Here's what's available:
Ben Tate @ TEN
Bilal Powell vs ARI
Daryl Richardson vs SF
David Wilson @ WAS

With Julio Jones coming up big small last night, I really need to make the right call here...
