should I start Cedric Benson or Ben Tate or Toby Gerhart or pick up Isaac redman? I currently only have Benson but am wondering to drop him for the other?

Ben Tate, MJD, and Michael Turner. Need 2 out of the 3, can't decide which to go for. Turner is my only easy decision, knowing he'll play all game.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Should I take a chance on Richardson or start Deangelo Williams in his place?

I would go MJD and Turner, at least MJD is a 3rd down back according to HC Mularkey

All right I need some last minute advice on who to start in my WR/TE flex spot. It's a PPR, 1 pt/10 yards league.

WR-Titus Young (STL)
TE-Fred Davis (@NO)
TE-Greg Olsen (@TB)

Right now I have Davis starting but feel Young could have a great game with less receptions.


Greg Olsen

I would go McCoy & Martin. The other two will get limited touches because of the other RB(s) in the rotation. Or in the case of MJD the fact that he's just coming off a holdout so his carries will be limited.

I'd start Tate over Benson and Gerhart. Likewise Tate and Turner over MJD. DeAngelo Williams over Richardson. McCoy and Martin over Sproles and MJD. I think Tate should have a big game. If Foster doesn't go, he gets the whole workload in a game that shouldn't be close and if Foster does go, and the game isn't close, I can see them limiting Arian's touches once it gets out of hand.

Everybody add your scoring for your league in your posts it helps because as you know there is a difference in starting say Darren Sproles in a ppr league than in a standard scoring league. MJD and Turner. Watch the morning reports Arian Foster has been dealing with a knee injury and was ,I think, questionable so he could sit at the last minute. If he did sit Tate and Turner. Heck being that Foster is a bit dinged I expect Tate to get 10 to 15 carries anyway if you like to gamble he could be the better play outright as I think MJD will get light work today(10 - 15 carries also but not in football shape yet).

Tampa Bay run defense last year was the gift that kept giving. And from what I heard they haven't improved. DeAngelo is a talented back and with the J. Stew questionable if not out outright I go DeAngelo.

I like Gerhart today. AP is going to be monitored closely and Gerhart proved himself to be a legit back in this league. Also I wouldn't drop any back you have for Redman. I believe Dwyer will have that job soon.

Stewart is out, Foster is likely to play.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

Anybody think Tate will still see touches today? Foster is playing I know but I could see him being limited in his carries

I'd keep and start Benson. The Packers have no other running backs. Srsly. Starks blew it, Grant is gone. Saine, Green? Not likely. Even though I feel Benson is overrated and possibly past his prime, I can't see him not being the man there. Tate has great upside today. Foster is playing, but I suspect Houston will keep him on a short leash given they're playing Miami. Tate at a bare minimum is splitting carries. Toby is going to be the man in Minny soon. If not sometime this year, it will be next. AP has been the beast for awhile, but isn't going to last - just ask LT. All 3 of these guys have upside. Redman is not going to usurp Mendy. He's a placeholder, at best, and might not make it past week 2.

Ben Tate, MJD, and Michael Turner. Need 2 out of the 3, can't decide which to go for. Turner is my only easy decision, knowing he'll play all game.


Tate. MJD may not get any play time out of spite. Tate will get much more, and is on a far better offense.

Should I take a chance on Richardson or start Deangelo Williams in his place?


DeAngelo. Not only have they paid the man, Stewart tweeted he doesn't look to play today. Stewart tweeted it, not analysts. Trent is still questionable, and given last years debacle, I can't see the Browns not playing it safe with their future back.

Start two RB from these: LeSean McCoy , MJD, Darren Sproles, Doug Martin


McCoy and Sproles. You know what they can do. MJD is a question mark for me this week, and Martin is unproven. I never leave a game in the hands of a player that has never played in an NFL game. Preseason doesn't count. If he does good this week, then you know. If not, then you'll feel like every one who drafted Daniel Thomas last year.

Can't decide whether to start Ben Tate or Foster. Ugh.

I have Tate, Demaryius Thomas, or Boldin for a flex play...

If I'm wrong, don't curse my name too much. But I think Tate is the safer play here. I don't think the Dolphins have any shot in this game. If that happens, Tate should wind up getting the majority of touches - including scrub time. I can't see Houston risking further injury to Foster if the game becomes a blow out.

Thomas. Crazy, but I think Peyton will light it up to prove a point. Boldin plays a Cincy secondary that I like. I love me some Tate this week, but man, Thomas has so much potential in this game.

Pick two : Ronnie Brown, Doug Martin, Frank Gore, or Ben Tate.

I'm leaning towards Martin and Gore, but Brown is interesting with Mathews out. The same goes with Tate regarding Foster's health.

Lynch. Again, I can't start unproven backs in week 1. Moreso, if said back played for Utah State and blew his knee a year ago (or two, can't remember).

As a Niner's fan, I love me some Gore. That said, Jacobs is going to leach the Hell out of Gore's touches. Especially with Harbaugh suggesting going easy on Gore this year. Brown I think is the man this week. With no Tolbert, I'm not sure who else to trust there.

For me, I'd go Tate/Brown.

Haha. I played Tate over Thomas and my opponent played Foster...Not a great start (tho I'm only down 7 right now)


However, Michael Bush with 16 points off the bench? What a shock!
