View Full Version : Who to start at RB this week

Ok, I can start 2 of these 3 players: Marion Barber, Knowshon Moreno, Ray Rice. Barber has the injured quad but should play, and he is going against KC so its probably the best matchup. Plus I expect Dallas to be highly motivated and playing with a chip on their shoulder. Knowshon should get the bulk of the workload against New England with Buck possibly missing the game and he has really looked sharp and is a complete back. Rice is splitting carries, but coming off of a 100 yard rushing game where he also had about 50 receiving yards. Rice goes against the Cincy defense and has had double digit fantasy points in 3 of the 4 games.

I like all of my options, just not sure what 2 guys should start this week. I'm leaning towards Barber and Moreno (i'm a homer, when all is equal I will play the Bronco). What do you guys think? Obviously I will be monitoring Barber and if he gets scratched that makes the decision for me.

I would go with Barber and Moreno out of gut instinct. Buckhalter is hurt and I think we'll see Moreno getting more carries this week. If Correll fully participates in practice, might be a different story, but that's what I'd go for based on current injury reports.

Id go with Barber and Moreno

If its one thing this offense does well, its run the ball
