    Re: Fantasy football help

    I could also use some help picking 2 running backs:

    Ladanian Tomlinson (obvious #1)
    Rudi Johnson (@ SF)
    Selvin Young (@ HOU)
    Aaron Stecker (vs. ARI)
    Fred Jackson (@ CLE)

    Thanks everyone!

    Re: Fantasy football help

    Dayne probably won't play or if he does it shouldn't be much. I am having to bench him tonight. WR - CJ, TH and RB and I would use the Seahawks D.

    My league is in the second round and I have these choices.

    QB; Kellen Clemons, Eli Manning, AJ Feeley
    RB; Adrian Peterson-MN, Reggie Bush, Ron Dayne, Kolby Smith, DeShaun Foster
    WR; Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, Andre Davis, Randel-el, Devery Henderson
    TE; Greg Olson, Kellen Winslow
    K; Kasey, Rakers
    D; NE and KC

    Young may split time with Henry. The same with Jackson with Lynch.

    I'd probably go with Johnson...

    Cydar,

    Thanks for the advise last week by the way. I started Branch over Holt, and while it wasn't the difference, it was the right call.

    What makes you go with Jacobs over Portis? Just curious...

    And are you not sold on Roddy White this week?

    Thanks!

    I'd go with Johnson as well. SF shut down Peterson last week, but MN doesn't have the passing attack that the Bengals have. They won't be able to commit so much to the run...

    We only get two WR I have Henderson going over Davis, would you switch it? He just hasn't been getting the touches lately but the KR last week was nice.

    Blando, you need to man-up and pick your own lineup. What is this two weeks in a row. What are your knees buckling?

    Jacobs and Portis is a tossup as the numbers for both rushing defenses are about the same. The game is in the Meadowlands so I gave Jacobs the nod although Portis had a decent game there last year. The Redskins may lean on him more as Todd Collins will probably start.

    Tampa Bay has the 4th best passing defense in the NFL. I'm guessing that the team may be in a mess with Petrino leaving. And the game is in Tampa...

    Henderson plays Arizona in New Orleans. I'd probably go with Henderson over Davis...

    Westbrook all the way, he's been banged up most of the year but has still carried my fantasy team.
