1 at NY Jets
2 Miami
3 Baltimore
4 at Pittsburgh

6 at Cleveland
7 Denver
8 at Tennessee
9 Dallas

10 at Washington
11 Pittsburgh
12 Cleveland
13 at Baltimore
14 at New England

16 NY Giants
17 at Philadelphia

I would not want to start Rudi on any of the bold weeks. Especially weeks 2 through 9, Rudi only faces one defense that's bad (Cleveland). Miami, Baltimore, Tennessee, Dallas and Denver all had top 10 rushing defenses, and I think Pittsburgh's was like 11th or 12th. Then at the end of the year you've got the Patriots and Bills who have very stiff D.

This schedule is just brutal. Avoid Rudi.

Rudi (and the Bengal offense) also did not establish that he can get yards through the air. Cincy does not appear to utilize the RB's in the passing game as a strong part of their philosophy. At least not with Dillon, no track record with Johnson last year, and this year remains to be seen. Iffy 2nd Rounder in my book!

KG, you are more optimistic about that schedule than I am :-o

Dallas only gave up 7 rushing touchdowns (Tampa and Baltimore had 6), and had the best rushing defense in the NFC. I don't see how you could have missed them.

I would hardly call that schedule a pushover. Hes facing like 4 of the top defense this year. Tennesee, Buffalo, Denver and Pittsburgh aren't too easy either. He may be good against Cleveland though. :-D
