I have these 4 RBs and can start 2 this weekend. Who should I start?

Brian Westbrook vs. Tampa Bay
Chester Taylor vs. Seattle
Cadillac Williams vs. Philly
Maurice Jones-Drew vs. Houston

I am leaning towards Westbrook and Jones-Drew. I think Jones-Drew will get a lot of touches this Sunday and the Texans are horrible. What do you think?

Westbrook and Jones-Drew sounds right. Taylor gets all the touches, but Seattle's run defense has been pretty good this year.

Well, you didn't say who was at home.

I usually look at these criterias when choosing to start players:

1. How good is their run defense.
2. How has this particular player scored the past three weeks?
3. And if nothing else, I play whoever is playing at home. Guys usually perform better at home than on the road.
4. Lastly, if anything, play a guy who's not sharing the load with anyone else.

Add all that up, and choose your two players.

If I'm not satisfied with any of those, then I'll actually do some research and see how the player actually performed against this very team the past few games.

But, you usually can't go wrong with those criterias.

I'd play Taylor and Jones-Drew until I was sure that Westbrook wouldn't "tweak his knee" again in pre-game warm-ups or something. You don't want to wind up with a fat zero in that spot.
