There's no chance you start Williams over Richardson or Johnson, even if Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert don't even suit up. Don't over-think it. If you have to start one, start the stud: Trent Richardson. Denver's #2 defense against the run doesn't scare me here. Richardson is matchup-proof. He's #6 in fantasy points among RB's this year. The other two aren't even in the top 10.

I would start CJ for sure. Richardson has run like crap recently and been bailed out by some goal line work. I know it's scary to play CJ in your championship game, but I think you should roll the dice. Agree with above that DWill, Stewart or no Stewart, isn't part of the conversation.

Not to argue, but Trent Richardson's "crap" has been better than CJ?K.

Just to be clear: he's had better fantasy production for the entire season (196.9 vs 159.9), better over the second half of the season (112.4 vs 104.3), better over the last 4 weeks (65.0 vs 40.1), and better over the last two weeks (32.3 vs 24.1). The "slump" of four games Richardson has supposedly fallen into includes six trips to the end-zone. Richardson is the only real option for goal-line touches, and he gets them every week.

Likewise, fantasy Super Bowl is not the time to "roll the dice." Chris Johnson depends too much on big plays for fantasy production. Richardson is the stud out of these three and has proved it all year. Start your studs. Go with Trent.
