    I am in two leagues.

    My question is...
    the RB's for one team consists of:
    Addai (vs Jax)
    C. Johnson
    McFadden (vs Buf)
    Fargas
    Morris

    I am going to start Johnson and contemplating whether or not I should start Morris over Addai this week IF Maroney and Jordan don't play against the phins.

    RB's on the other team are:
    Barber
    Graham (vs Chi)
    C. Johnson (vs Hou)
    Morris

    I am definitely starting Barber but who should be my other starter this week?

    Barber/C.Johnson

    Easy.

    I agree, Indy's offense has looked pretty bad, but you've got to go with Addai anyway, he's too talented to bench.

    For me I'm back to my QB problems.

    Delhomme vs Minn
    Schaub vs Tenn
    Hasslebeck vs. STL

    I'm leaning toward Hass again even though he's got no WRs because I think the Rams are just that bad, and Minny is OK on D and Tenn is real good.

    I'm also between Julius Jones vs Rams or Thomas Jones vs SD, again I'm leaning Julius because of the Rams' D, though Thomas may not be bad seeing how bad the SD D has been so far.

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    Go with Delhomme. They won't be able to run the ball well and will have to win the game in the air. Go wih JJ.

    Addai, even though Indy can't run the ball with that line and Peyton being banged up and Johnson.

    Barber and Graham.

    Thanks Whiskey, although now I've got a tougher choice on my hands than I thought! The Rams look epically bad through 2 weeks, that would be the only reason for Hass.

    I'm surprised you'd pick Graham against what looks like a rejuvenated Chicago D over Johnson getting to run against the Houston D that gave up about 350 yards to Willie Parker week 1.

    Gotta start Delhomme based on the fact that the Double S is back this week. Steve Smith is going to be looking to redeem himself, and Delhomo will be the one helping him do just that.

    JJ vs. the Lambs is the safe bet IMO. TJ is garbo.

    1: Steve Smith vs MIN or
    Lee Evans vs OAK

    2: MJD vs INDY or
    Thomas Jones vs SD

    I'm leaning towards Smith and MJD. Although Lee Evans has me intrigued because of his matchup (although on paper it looks bad, in reality it's cush)

    Yeah, I would go with Smith and MJD, especially since Bob Sanders is out.

    Smith and MJD are the plays.

    The Dolts are soft up the middleh and even with a banged up O-line, MJD should be able to carve them up a bit.

    Smith is as close to a lock as you will get this week for 100+ and a TD. He's gotta be in your line-up.

    If you guys had the chance to pick up Kevin Smith (Det RB) in place of Todd Heap (I also have Heath Miller) would you do it? My other RB's are Barber, Graham, Johnson, and Morris.

    Absolutely. No need to carry two TE's (especially medicore ones). Drop Heap like a bad habit and pick up Smith. Your RB stable can never be deep enough in FFB.

    Thanks, so I ended up doing it and now my dilemma at RB has changed a little.

    So I am seriously considering starting Morris (since Maroney and Jordan probably aren't going to start) over Graham who is facing Chicago and C. Johnson who is facing Houston. But now I have Smith who is going against SF.

    What to do... what to do...

    I’m having a hard time sitting CJ vs. Houston. Willie Parker carved them up real good in week one.

    Word on the street is that Maroney will play today. That's going to hurt Sammy's value. Miami's run D# hasn't been too bad this season ether (Believe it or not) they are only giving up 3.1 YPC, and 96.5 YPG. That's good for 12th in the league.

    I love Graham (drafted him in most leagues), but im getting a little nervous because his stats have been inflated both games due to him breaking off one or two long runs. If not for the big plays, he would be looking pretty mediocre right now. I’m sitting him vs. the Bears in leagues where I have better options.

    Smith is an interesting play vs. SF. But don't forget about that beast Patrick Willis patrolling the middle of the field, and Detroit is only averaging about 55 ypg on the ground.

    All things considered. I think Chris Johnson is the best play here.

    If Maroney is out, I would rank them...

    Johnson
    Morris
    Graham
    Smith

    If Marony plays...

    Johnson
    Graham
    Morris
    Smith

    i could use some last minute advice

    We do get ppr.
    1pt-every 10 yards rushing
    1pt every 15 yards recieving
    also get 1 pt for every 25 punt or return yards.
    6pts for touchdowns
    1pt bonus for 100 plus rushing or 150 yards recieving.
    We also have 1 flex position

    Here is my team
    QB:
    McNabb or Derrick Anderson
    RB:
    Thomas Jones, Chris Johnson, Reggie Bush, Brian Westbrook, Jonathon Stewart
    WR:
    Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquon Bolden, Roddy White

    My thoughts were to play
    McNabb-QB
    Bush-RB
    Westbrook-RB
    Chris Johnson-Flex
    Andre Johnson-WR
    LArry Fitzgerald-WR

    I just do not know if I should try to get Bolden in there somewhere, but if I do, who do I take out?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.
