    Post your dilemma's for week 5!

    Here is my dilemma: I have 3 RB's and 2 spots to play them.
    1. Willie Parker vs. Seattle
    2. Reggie Bush vs. Carolina (Eventhough the Saints O has been terrible, Bush should see increased reps with Duece gone for the season)
    3. Sammy Morris vs. Cleveland (Is Maroney going to play in this one?)

    Your tips and thoughts are appreciated.

    Parker and Morris. Parker is the no-brainer, IMO. I pick Morris over Bush because even with Maroney's return, Morris' north/south running style makes him a prime goalline vulture while Bush won't find any running room behind that awful OL, plus it's not like he hits the holes hard anyway.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Thanks Chris and like you said, Parker is the no-brainer. I am really on the fence between Morris and Bush especially since Morris will be facing the Browns D.

    I just can't get rid of this feeling that the Saints offense is going to make a statement this Sunday. But seeing is believing.

    Re: Week 5: Start/Sit Lynch Over Morris???

    I think that even with the possibility of Maroney's return, I'd still stick with Morris over Lynch. Lynch will be going up against the 7th ranked D vs. the run while Morris will be getting the ball against the 30th ranked run D and BB tends to give Morris the ball once they get near the goal line. I think the gameplan offensive gameplan for the Browns will be very similar to the one against the Bengals.

    You have a great flex player, I should know, he is my TE on my team.

    Now a question for you...
    For WR's I have TJ Houshmandzedah (on a bye this week), Hines Ward (injured and 50/50 chance to play vs. Seattle and Brandon Marshall has really stepped up in his place), Javon Walker (also injured and 50/50 chance to play vs. SD), Dwayne Bowe vs Jax, and Bobby Engram vs Pitt.

    That leaves me with 2 healthy WR's this week with very unfavorable matchups. Who do you think I should take my chance on Walker or Ward? I can't drop anyone because my league is full of vultures and they will swipe my guys away quickly and there is no one left (IMO) that is worth the calibur of player that I would have to drop.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    I can start only two at both RB and WR. Below are my available players that are not hurt (Steven Jackson) or on bye. The only thing that makes Maroney a more attractive option then Morris is that this league does not give many points for touchdowns (3) and some escalators for total yards per game.

    RB
    De'Shaun Foster vs NO
    Laurence Maroney vs CLE
    Sammy Morris vs CLE

    WR
    Randy Moss vs CLE
    Terrell Owens vs BUF
    Roy Williams vs WAS
