    It might help to know who your RBs were in order to figure out who you should start. Depending on who else you have, I might say "start 'em both".

    Your conundrum is the reason I stayed away from both of those guys in my draft. If it has to be one or the other, I would go with Dillon for now. Better to stick with the known quantity - but it's really almost a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation. ;)

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't see the poll at the top of the page. You have a very difficult, nerve wracking decision to make..!! Brown and Chester could have monster days - or give you nothing at all :D

    I always go with clear starters vs. backs that split carries. With dual RB you run the risk of the other getting hot in a game and getting most the carries. Or one RB getting good yards then the other getting the receptions and TD's. If I had Maroney and Dillon I'd wait until one has a huge game, trade him because his stock will be high then keep the other as a backup.

    well yah, that and the raiders o seems to be my biggest problems.

    however, im thrilled it appears the pats will split carries, I've been a huge supporter of that since the season started.

    Dillon is way to valuable to not give him 10-20 carries a game.

    Agreed in real life, not fantasy football


    WRONG!!! If Dillons gets 2 ypc in the first quarter, while Maroney is getting 4-5 ypc then Dillon only gets 5-10 touches in the game. These two are interchangable they aren't separate role RB's. I love both these guys but they are terrible fantasy options unless they are your backups or you're desperate.

    When i said he was too valuable to not give him 10-20 carries ii was referring to his performance against the bills and not fantasy football.

    He looked like the dillon in 2004 who ran people over and always fell forward.

    I like him in there more than Maroney.

    Wow, this is a tough one. I avoided Dillon and Maroney like the plague due to the fact they are splitting carries. That being said, I think I like either of them better than Lamont Jordan.

    Why does ANYBODY draft a guy in a split backfield?!?!?!?!? Well, okay, in a big league you have to. But still.

    Ronnie Brown and Chester Taylor are the locks. Anybody can have a bad day any given sunday, but these guys are "the man" in their respective offenses. Lamont Jordan too, but I can't bring myself to believe he's not vastly over-raided. Heh.

    Still not sure what group to go with, I am leaning heavily towards Dillon, Chester Taylor, and Ronnie Brown.

    Does any of the Saturday crew have any thoughts on this?

    If i were you i would start Steven Jackson and frank Gore.........
    Tiki's playin philly, he loses goalline carries.
    Gore was a monster and Jackson was great. They are playing each other.
    I would go out to a bar and watch my runningbacks play each other, and get wasted. :D

    Then i would start Mcallister and Alexander.
    Deuce gets way more carries than jacobs, you can't just hope that he gets lucky and gets a goaline carry, and then hope that he gets a td.

    Go with the guys that will be gettin the ball for the majority of the game.

    Now will you please vote?
