View Full Version : Help me pick 2 of 4 RB

This is for the championship; I need to pick 2 of these 4 tricky RB to start:

Westbrook @ Wash
Steve Slaton @ Oak
Pierre Thomas @ Det
Kevin Smith home v NO

I'm tempted to not start Westbrook this week seeing as he nearly cost me a title game berth last week. Maybe that's a bad idea, though.

Pierre Thomas for sure..then I'd probably go with Westbrook or Slaton. Tough decision. I'd lean more towards Slaton. Teams are still going to try and take away Westbrook, I would assume. But with Slaton, they'll first try to stop the passing game and obviously, if Sammy Morris can run for over 100 yards, I'm sure Slaton can do it..

Westbrook and Slaton w/o hesitation.

you'd be nuts to not start Thomas right now. Dude is ON FIRE!

Thomas for sure. Tough call on the other one (Slayton/Westbrook), Westbrook would probably be my choice, he has so many touches it's hard not to start him. You can't go wrong with Slayton and the favorable match up either.

Go with your stars - you can't sit Westbrook at this point, IMO. Plus Philly is desperate for a win, so he has a good chance at getting plenty of touches.

I'd pair him up with Pierre Thomas against the pathetic Lions.

Thomas and Slaton.

I'm still not convinced that I should start Westbrook. Yeah, he has the potential to go off, but when he doesn't he costs owners games. From my point of view, if I start Westbrook and he goes off, then I win by 15 points. If he doesn't go off, I lose. Alternatively, if I start Thomas and Slaton, which is my plan, then I win by 7 points or so; they just have good matchups this week.

Thomas (100 percent, lock) and Westbrook.

Westbrook and Slaton. Easy. They're both double threat guys. Also Detroit has been respectable recently.

I'm in a similar situation once again...picking between Thomas Jones (Seattle), Steven Jackson (San Francisco), and Michael Turner (Minnesota). I sat Turner last week, and almost lost because of it...but I really believe that Jackson is a player who will turn it on in garbage time. I thought Jones would do more last week...as Jackson was a good play. Any thoughts are appreciated...I don't mean to hijack it's just not worthy of another thread.

This is hilarious. The Saints have scored three rushing touchdowns, none of which were by Pierre Thomas. Meachem, McAllister and Mike Bell have scored. Its a conspiracy to defeat me.

Vonta Leach gets a goal line carry over Slaton? This is horseshit. If I lose it will be because random dudes get goalline carries over featured backs.

I should have gone with Kevin Smith :banghead:
