Big RB trouble, playing my wife in playoffs! Help!

Postby Twlong223 » Wed Dec 05, 2012 6:20 pm

My RB woes cost me a first round bye and now I'm playing against my wife in the first round. McCoy going down was brutal and my winning record meant a low waiver spot so she actually got Bryce brown instead of me. So now I'm stuck with these four options at running back:

Mathews, DMC, marcel Reece, and Alex green. None of them are good choices, but I have to play two of them. I wish there were better options on waivers, but there aren't. So which two are going to be the least crappy options?

Leave a link and I'll help as well! Thanks for the advice

Well they do suck, but here it goes. You have to play green (apparently Starks is out for the season). I think you have to play DMC if he plays, if not go Reece. That said I have heard Mike Goodson might be back this week and if DMC is out I know Goodson was no 2 on the depth chart. Might just have to monitor who is going to start for tomorrow. Matthews, well he is just unreliable and shouldn't even be owned in a league.

I worry about DMC because they said they wanted to ease him back in, and Denver totally shut down Martin last week. It's likely they will be playing from behind. If so, does this give more weight towards playing Reece?

Maybe avoiding both Oakland backs is a better idea and I should start Mathews and green? Ugh
