You needed an 'other' category. I don't think Moreno will be the starter week one, but I am not convinced McDaniels will start Hillis, even though I think he should be. So, I picked Hillis, but I think he will start Jordan or Buckhalter week 1.

As long as Moreno is healthy and ready to go, he is going to be the starter IMO. Hillis should be backing him up though at #2.

It's going to take both Hillis and Moreno... and a lot of it.

as much as i like Hillis, no way will McDaniels start him. if Moreno is healthy week 1 he is our starter. Hillis will play his way into more carries, but he isn't going to start.

I love Hillis, but Moreno is more of the NFL RB type, this guy in his limited number of carries is extemely quick out of his 1st cut. He stays low to the ground with that slight twist to his upper body while running, which for one helps him become a smaller target to wrap up, and two, allows him to create the hit with that lead shoulder, instead of getting hit. Like I said, I only saw a few carries, but that running ability along with no injuries could be a beautiful thing to watch.

Moreno if healthy will start otherwise Buckhalter should start with Hillis and Jordan behind him.

Jordan didn't look bad on Friday.

I'll be happy regardless if this question is relevant at any time, because I fear it won't (injury)

Where is the Smash and Dash... Thunder and Lightning option?

We could call them Arabian and Clydesdale.

Both will be in the backfield, both will create matchup nightmares for defense. Win win.

Hills should be the #1 back until Moreno is healthy, and then they split carries evenly. Very simple, imo.

I like how everybody knows everything about the RBs and who is going to start. It makes it so much easier than to wait until the preseason is finished. Also, I am sure McD appreciates it. I mean he doesn't have to coach, make decisions or do anything because everyone here knows exactly what needs to be done.....

I picked Hillis just because everyone else here would take Moreno because no one thinks McD will start him.
