fantasy football question

Hey I am not sure if this is the right place for this or not but I have a fantasy football question. I need to play three RB's this week. My roster includes:

1) Ryan Grant
2) Marshawn Lynch
3) Tim Hightower
4) DeAngelo Williams
5) Clinton Portis

Lynch is suspended so he is out the top three point scorers in week one were Grant, Hightower and Williams, but I am considering sitting williams or grant in favor of portis, thinking he is gonna have a good game.

any sugestions?

Sit Hightower against Jacksonville. Grant should be good for ~1 TD against Cinci, and Portis could go for 120 this week.

Re: fantasy football question

+1 on GTripp's notion.

If you can avoid it, don't sit Williams, especially now that Delhomme has forgotten how to play QB. They are going to lean heavily on Williams and Stewart.

And while you haven't said anything about point structure, if you get points per reception, I'd consider keeping Portis on the bench and starting Hightower, as Warner feels pretty comfortable getting him the ball out of the backfield.

Re: fantasy football question

sorry we get points for rushing and reciving yard as well as touchdowns. based on the above advice and further thought I am leaning toward portis, williams and hightower


of course given my fantasy history I can safely assume what ever decision I make will undoubtedly be wrong

Re: fantasy football question

Potris, Williams and Hightower. Beanie Wells is still a non-factor in AZ.

I am self proclaimed fantasy expert, with too few championships in all my time playing to truly be that. But, your situation is easy. Ryan Grant is a stud and healthy, Portis against the Rams has a huge upside(non-skins fans agree), And DeAngelo Williams was often drafted this year as a top 5 running back. If you sit him in week 2, you're crazy. And Hightower is going to continue to lose carries to Beanie. Beanie by week 5 will be the td vulcher in 'zona.

Just because Jake Delhomo turned the ball over 5 times against the eagles doesn't make the eagles the greatest D in the world, it makes JD look like garbage. Go with Brees.

I BET PEOPLE IN CAROLINA WOULD LOVE CAMPBELL RIGHT ABOUT NOW

Philly is stuck with Kolb this week and Brees has the WR guns to still do some major damage. I wasn't impressed by SD Monday night, but still Brees has the WR corp and I don't think Kolb is going to get the job done, so Brees might be on the field quite a bit. IN a tough decision like this, just stick with your star.

Re: fantasy football question

I played DeAngelo, Portis, & Freddy Jackson this same week.

i escaped with 1 TD from RBs. we give .1 per Rush Attempt too so im always in good shape with CP as a workhorse 15+ carries.
