Who should I start, I have to chose two of the three in a non pts per reception league? My first thought is to go with Gore and Mendenhall because of the fact that Forte has not done well against a 3-4 defense this yr. What do you guys think?

I'd probably go with Gore and Forte.

Forte's biggest problems early were that the Bears were bound and deterimined to milk every last pass out of Cutler. They're now using him more judiciously and Forte has been the beneficiary.

Even in an off week Forte's worth 10 pts because of his pass-catching.

I think obese people on Rascals are funny.

The Bears OC is really doing his best to kiss Cutler's butt with these gameplans.

Even though they were down a lot last week, 5 carries is just unacceptable for a starting RB.

Look at the defense...

The book says, Gore and Forte over Mendenhall based on the defense.

http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/tools/projections?scoringPeriodId&&slotCategoryId=2

Look at projections:
Gore: 16
Forte: 14
Mendenhall: 10


But sometimes you have to go with your gut. Good Luck

Unless the skins can figure it out early they give up the 5th most points to opposing DST. The 49ers are better at 13th.

I only have 2 losses this year and both times I scored over 100 pts and my opponent had a D vs skins that got them 17 and 24 points.

With the entire country watching the Thursday night game Forte starting is a ust. He will show his skills.

Forte is pretty much the reason why I'm having a down year in FF.

I'd go with Gore & Mendenhall.

Well, 120 yds receiving in a week when his line couldn't make a hole for him at all. He was worth 18 pts in my ESPN league (+2 pts for going over 100yds)

Forte still looks shifty in the second level, he still has a lot to offer. It's just a damn shame that the Chicago line is completely incapable of blocking for him.

In a PPR league he's still a must-start. Even in a standard league there are very few instances where I'd set him down.
