    I can start three RBs in my league but I'm torn as to which ones.

    My RBs are:

    Steven Jackson @ Phi
    Willis McGahee vs. Cin
    Ricky Williams vs. NYJ
    Matt Forte @ Ind
    Kevin Smith @ Atl
    Ray Rice vs. Cin

    Jackson is a given. McGahee is starting but not 100%. RW is splitting carries. Forte and Smith are starting but are rookies. Rice will get whatever carries McGahee doesn't.

    Indy had one of the worst run defenses in the preseason. The NYJ were middle of the road. Cincy and Atl were #13 and #12 and Phi was top 10. But I have no idea if the stats were accumulated in the 1st or 4th qtr.

    Any advice?

    safest bet to me would be Jackson, Mcgahee and Smith... Smith is now the clear cut number 1 for at least this first game with Bell gone and Rudi probably not getting the offense that quickly... so he'll get the bulk of the carries and against a team they should beat easy, thus running the ball a lot late

    id like ricky, but you dont know how the split is gonna be with him and Ronnie

    Smith is probably the guy to go with. Mcgahee is still hurting from offseason surgery and I think rice will have his job soon, just not yet. Forte isnt a great matchup. Williams is in a time share, one that i think he will see the fewer carries while its a split carry system.

    Thanks, Mcgahee's injury is scaring me. I'm leaning towards Jackson, Smith and Forte. I don't think the matchup against Indy is bad and I think he's almost a lock to get a ton of carries and anything at the goal line.

    Steven Jackson @ Phi--easy
    Willis McGahee vs. Cin--if he's starting I'm not benching him
    Ricky Williams vs NYJ--even if he splits with Brown the Dolphins may end up running the ball 40 times.
