Taylor will be carrying most of the load. Musa will get a few carries, but only to take some of the work off of Chester.

I heard that Taylor will get the majority of carries, but that Musa may be the goal line back because of his size. I think this was from espn, but do not remember.

Frankly, I think if Musa was going to get any carries, they would have given him one before now. Taylor is your guy.

The only thing that could hold Chester back is his history of running for no gains on many plays before breaking a huge gain. If he strings together enough short gainers they may put Musa in there. But I think that Taylor will make good use of the big holes that his O-line opens up. H eshould be the main man.

If I had to guess right now, I would say Chester, put I am not counting on it.

Musa was the speculated starter before the season, he fits the J Lew type mold that makes him good for the offense. Taylor has gotten carries this year because he compliments Lewis well, there is no reason to use a similar type back like Musa. So right now I'm not positive as to how the situation will pan out.

It'll be Taylor. Everytime Jamal needs a breather, he's the guy in the game.
