    My RB situation is crowded, so I'm forced to play matchups every week (which is always a painful exercise). My league format allows me to play 3.. who would you start?

    W. Parker vs. CLE
    M. Jones-Drew vs. BUF
    T. Jones vs. NE
    J. Jones vs. SF
    R. Williams vs. ARI

    Wanted to pass along to Ryan Grant fantasy owners that he may be inactive this week because of a hamstring problem. The team is likely to sit him because they're playing the Lions. Seriously.

    I say Parker, MJD, and Julius Jones.

    Here's one for you guys: LaDainian Tomlinson is listed as questionable. Do I start him and hope he makes the game, or do I bench him for Matt Forte?

    i think he'll play, and even if he only takes half the snaps he could have a big game.. tough call

    as for the other debate, i'd say parker MJD and T Jones honestly... julius, i just dont trust him on that injured offense

    Dumb as it sounds, I'm leaning towards Forte unless I hear that Tomlinson is starting.

    I also have a running back issue in a second league: I've got Marion Barber, Willis McGahee, Chester Taylor, Ray Rice, and Felix Jones. Thanks to Hurricane Ike, the Texans and Ravens aren't playing, so I can't start McGahee or Rice. I've moved Taylor to the starting lineup, especially since he's up against the soft Indy defense, but I'm kind of tempted to start Felix Jones too. Any thoughts?

    I am taking the chance on Tomlinson in another league.

    In the 2nd league I would give Jones a shot.

    Same here. To bolster any possible drop in LT's production, I have.... his former backup Michael Turner...:tongue2:

    I need two of these 3: Jacobs, Addai, or Forte? Who should I start?

    Jacobs definitely. As for Addai and Forte, if you think Addai can do something against the Jags, go with him; otherwise, Forte.

    I'm staying away from Tomlinson this week. I've got Turner and Forte, I can afford to bench LT, especially after last week's debacle.

    Alright, I have a couple of tough decisions to make this week. I'd appreciate any advice:

    Jake Delhomme @ Minnesota, or Ben Roethlisberger @ Philly?
    Chad Johnson @ Giants, or Patrick Crayton @ Packers?
    DeSean Jackson vs Steelers, or Darren Sproles vs Jets?
    David Patten @ Broncos, or Matt Jones @ Colts?
    Roddy White @ Chiefs, or Santana Moss vs Cardinals?
    And, finally, NYG's Steve Smith vs Bengals, Robert Meachem @ Broncos, or Kevin Walter @ Titans?

    It's amazing how close all of these matchups are. Either I have great depth or my teams suck. :lol:

    Delhomme. Big Ben's hurting and you gotta think the Eagles will tighten things up against the pass after Monday. Delhomme's getting his top WR back and the Vikes have been pretty poor against the pass. Indoors too.

    Crayton is just not getting many looks and is really an up and down player. Ocho Cinco and Co. may have problems but you gotta think they'll bounce back sooner or later and you can't really dismiss a guy like 85.

    DeSean Jackson. He's becoming McNabb's primary WR. But keep an eye out on Sproles. If you get return yards or if LT really can't play, then start him. Else, Jackson.

    David Patten. It could be a real shoot em up against the Broncos and Patten is Brees' #1 WR right now.

    I'm going with White because Pat Surtain's out and the Chiefs are fielding untested rookies at CB's. They also aren't doing a good job getting to the QB or handling the run.

    I'd probably go with Meachem just because of that NO offense but those just don't look like very appetizing options. Titans D will put the hurt on Schaub and Smith doesn't exactly get many looks.

    Thanks, always helps to get outside views.

    Here's two more for you, both involving Aaron Rodgers.

    Rodgers vs Cowboys, or Kurt Warner @ Redskins?
    Rodgers vs Cowboys, or Donovan McNabb vs Steelers?

    I agree with what Reagan said. White and Moss is a tough call but you should be ok either way.

    The first one is tough bc I'm not sure about Newman for Dallas. Washington's D as a whole looks terrible so I'm inclined to go with Warner.

    The second I would say McNabb.

    Whatd you guys think about the Arizona D? I'm thinking of starting them over Minn (they play Car, Ari plays Wash)

    I'm also all but sold on John Carlson (plays Stl) over Chris Cooley for this week.

    I dropped Seattle's defense for Arizona in one league. I definitely like their matchup this week, and I think they're an overall improved unit from last year.

    Those are my opinions based on what I'm assuming is ppr leagues w/ return yards included.

    Guys, one more for you; LT is listed as questionable but it's reported he'll start on MNF. I have him, Michael Turner, and Matt Forte. Do I bench him? I'm leaning towards yes.

    Yea I would. No sense in gambling when you have two other solid options (they might both outproduce him even if he starts) in Turner and Forte.

    I benched LT with less stellar options then you. First time I ever get #1 pick, and it hasn't helped me at all.

    Still a gametime decision. I think Taylor will get more touches than AP.

    Yeah, Taylor is going to start even if AP plays. I'd bench AP.

    Nothing wrong with Lynch or Gore. Chris Johnson is a great injury/bye fill-in. I drafted Matt Forte for that very purpose, rather than as a full-time starter.

    If you really can't find a way to get Johnson in your lineup, though, you might want to trade him to improve another position.

    Yeah one problem ive been doing that and don't really know how much better i can make this team.

    QB: Big Ben
    RB: Lynch, Gore, MJD, C. Johnson, Hightower
    WR: Marshall, Megatron, Holt, Colston
    TE: Dallas Clark, Carlson
    K: Folk
    DEF: Dallas

    I know i could upgrade Ben but don't really know how much i want to give up. Same with my D..not sure worth trading someone for a better D...maybe Hightower if he keeps getting TDs

    Kinda of a toss up for me...i would most likely do Morris just because i think he'll have a better chance at some goal line carries
