How is that a debate? You're going to sit a top 5 pick in favor of a guy that 90% of the leagues out there have available as a FA?

Mike Bell is gonna start vs the Lions Defense I grantee he'll rush for at least 90 Yards, Williams will share the load with J. Steward vs the Eagles they'll both rush for maybe 60 Yards each

Mike Bell:90 Yards
Williams:60 Yards

Mine are easy decisions but I have some tough matchups.

Chris Johnson vs Pitt- He probably won't do much but can you really sit a guy I paid 80 bucks for in my leagues FA auction.

Grant vs Bears- a tough matchup but I have to play him

My other rbs are all sort of reaches and not ready to start.

McCoy- Phillys rookie rb
Bernard Scott- Cincy

Then I picked up Maroney in the last round.

My WR are no brainers every week they are healthy:

Fitzgerald- Paid 100 bucks for him in the FA Auction

Colston- Paid 30 bucks in FA auction

Royal- Drafted in the 5th round=total steal. Someone actually took steve Breaston in front of him.

Mike Bell? Forgetting Reggie Bush?

And Stewart won't play much if at all this weekend. Bank on it. I've read a few reports today that he's still running too tentatively and isn't ready to go full steam.

Look at these rankings. It's not even close:

I agree that DWill and Stewart will share, and struggle a bit with PHI. But Bell is a total gamble. Pierre hasn't been ruled out yet, and you still have Bush to run a bit.

I think you have to go with DWill as Stewart is just a gamble of not playing much than Pierre is.

exactly!!!! You don't ever sit MJD regardless of team he is playing.

Just like I won't sit Chris Johnson just because he's playing Steelers.

Big name players get up for big time games on national TV. You draft MJD, or Chris Johnson because they are gamers and have that swagger.

I sometimes worry more when its an easy team. Good team gets up on them early, and then the bkups get a lot of looks.

Most coaches lean on there big time players in big games.

Bush and Pierre are Hurt I think that they won't even play any of them vs the Lions but; if they do start Bush i don't see him getting a lot of Rushing atms.

Besides Bell over MJD? thats just crazy. I'm not saying Bell won't make more points. Lions are bad he could get some scores.

But Bell= Little big play potential, on a team that has Brees and Colston. They will throw 40 times. Plus NO a throwing team, they won't change simply because the lions also suck at stopping the run.

MJD= big play potential on a team that likes to run the ball.

I can't even believe we are debating this, its a no brainer.

Bell gets 15 looks IMO, no more then that.

The playmakers are Brees and Colston, they will be going off IMO.

Plus Bell not real quick or fast.

The one thing in Bell's favor is that NO is likely to run up the score early, and then they'd for sure rest Bush. Given Pierre will be back soon, maybe NO decides to run Bell a bunch in the second half to see how he does.

ESPN is projecting Bell to have 90 yards and a TD. They project DWill to have 90 yards and 2 TD's

That's all fine and good, but don't start a thread and call it a dilemma if you are literally being outvoted 10-1 right now and insist on coming up with any and every excuse for why you are going to start "the other guy" (who so happens to still be listed 3rd on the depth chart behind two guys who are hurt).

You obviously made up your mind before you posted this thread.

And, for what it's worth, I've NEVER heard of a starting RB that was listed as "probable" on Thursday not starting over a 3rd stringer on Sunday. Questionable or Doubtful, sure, but not probable. Anyone with a bruise is probable nowadays.

Yea Heasselback is gonna be Good this year but it won't get them to the playoffs,Mcnabb and the eagles are gonna have a bad year i can feel it.

The Eagles barely made it to the Playoffs and they had a better team last year,The lost of Jim Johnson and Dawkins is gonna hurt that team A lot. Plus westbrook is getting old I don't see them doing any good.

Leaning towards Santonio

I actually like DeSean Jackson at CAR little more. Because, Holmes is not very consistent (I've had him last 2 years) and Tennesse's stingy defense will blitze Rothlesburger offen.

I think Jackson can get you something like 6-7 catches 80-90 yards and a td.

Stewart is banged up and hasn't played or practiced much all preseason. I doubt he gets more than 5-8 carries.

B Marsh, Desean Jackson, E Royal, or Antonio Bryant. I need to start 3. Really not sure about B Marsh. With as much time as he has missed I think he will have a minimal role vs Cincy. Having said that Antonio Bryant doesn't have anyone to throw to him. Jackson and Royal are fo sho starting.

Start 1 WR/TE out of Royal, Sheffler and Welker.

Moreno, Buckhalter, Addai or Donald Brown

I'd go with Buckhalter over Moreno because of his injury I think he's going to be used as a change of pace back so Buckhalter is the starter.

Over those four I'd go with Addai.

Bell a saavy pickup. I missed him someone else had waiver priority over me.

I'm just saying your studs like Chris Johnson, Matt Forte, MJD etc I feel you play every week as long as they are healthy. Despite a tough matchup.

Look for matchup advantages with your mid level players but play your studs.

Plyers like MJD could have a huge day any week. You don't want to miss out on it.

yeah so with standard espn scoring(6 per td, 1 per 10 yds.) williams had 13 points (3+4+6) and Bell had 12 points (14-2). So really not a big difference or anything to gloat over.
