Wouldn't you rather have James get all the carries?
Stewie: [hitting on some co-eds] I must say, the most recent campus sporting event was quite spectacular.
Co-ed: Aw. Are you in a fraternity, little boy?
Stewie: Not yet, but I'm thinking of joining I Felta Thigh.

Personally I don't care which way it goes as I have both, but I need it to go one way or the other... I'll get killed if they do some sort of RBBC...

Well, we have a flex, so I suppose I could play Edge at RB with Q-tip and Rhodes at the flex spot.... That way I would atleast be assured of getting a good day out of one of them or a combined good day out of the two.... Hmmmm.... That might be a thought....

With my decision about Alexander last week, its nice to see someone else squirming about their starters. Luckily I made a good choice with T Jones to replace him.

Beat this.

I have Deuce as my #1 RB, he's definetly out for the week.
I have Edge as my #2, I've handcuffed him with Rhodes, no idea what will happen there.
I have Curtis Martin as my #3 RB, he's on a bye.
I have Dunn as my #4 RB, he's questionable for the week.

I need him to play bad. If he doesn't start, I will be playing

Aaron Stecker and either Bettis/Wheatley :~( . Dillon and Foster on the bye this week, so I'm pretty much guaranteed the loss this week now.

My fiance has Edge, Curtis Martin (bye), Corey Dillon (bye), Tatum Bell and she just dropped Jerry Rice to pick up Dominic Rhodes. We can only start 2 RBs each week and she decided to play Rhodes and Edge. I'm proud of her, that's exactly what I would have done. Hopefully, between the two of them, they'll get 20+ points.

While he won't start, Dominic Rhodes will likely split carries on Sunday.
That makes him a fine flex position candidate for teams during a bye week. Considering the Colts like to use Rhodes on the goal-line, he's a decent bet to score

and

Tony Dungy expects to split carries between Edgerrin James and Dominic Rhodes on Sunday.
"We're going to be smart," Dungy said. "It's one thing to play. It's another thing to play 85 plays and not get a break." Because it's the Colts playing a depleted Green Bay run defense, we see both player having fantasy value Sunday

I decided to play Rhodes and Edge unless Rhodes is named the starter, in which case it'll be Rhodes and Fred...

I'm playing it the same way Josebach's Fiancee is. I have Gordon, but I'm not chancing him against the Pitt D. I figure if I start both and both play, I've got it made for the week! ;-D
Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?

Edge cleared to start

Postby purestrength » Fri Sep 24, 2004 3:19 pm

Quick word from an Indiana observer:

Dungy said after Friday's practice that James should start, but that his PT will be limited and Rhodes is likely to play a lot.

Dungy said James looked good in practice again Friday, but they want to be careful. He added that things could change if any problems arise Saturday.

That's the paraphrased version of some knowledge I just acquired.
