FFL Running back dilemna

This week is my first playoff game (had a bye last week). My running backs are:

Steve Slaton (home vs. TEN)
Steven Jackson (home vs. SEA)
M. Jones-Drew (home vs. GB)
LenDale White (@ HOU)

Normally, I would play Slaton and Jackson, but now with the news that Fred Taylor is on IR, MJD is going to get more carries against a porous GB run defense.

So if I play MJD, who do I sit? Slaton against a tough TEN defense? He went for 116 and a TD against them in week 3.

Jackson has just come back from injury and is facing a weak SEA run defense. Is he too much of a risk given that he is probably not 100 percent?

Which of 2 of these would you start?

Also, is there any reason to start Eli Manning or Cassel over Thigpen? I've had Thiggy in my line up the last 3 weeks and am really hesitant to make a switch.

Thanks in advance...

I'd start Maurice Jones-Drew since Fred Taylor is out for the year...

GB's run defense is terrible, hell they are in general. I'd start Stephen Jackson too

I've got MJD and Jackson in there now, so that's kind of the way I was leaning before this thread.

Any more opinions?

My opponent has Steven Jackson on his bench as of today and Ryan Grant in his lineup. I'm hoping he doesn't make the switch because I fear Jackson this week.

If I were you, I'd probably go with MJD and Jackson.

I've got:

Thomas Jones vs BUF (17th in yrds allowed, 12 TDs allowed)
Ron Brown vs SF (14th in yrds, 13 TDs)
Jonathan Stewart vs DEN (26th in yrds, 17 TDs)

I'm planning on starting Jones for sure. Stewart's been riding my bench all season, but I'm thinking about putting him in for Brown this weekend. Anyone have an opinion?

That's pretty much where I'm headed. I guess I just hate to bench Slaton. I've played him every week since I acquired him in a trade at mid-season. With Jackson going down to injury, I would have never got a first-round bye without Slaton.

That's a tough one. Brown has averaged more carries per game than Stewart all season, but Brown does not put up huge numbers. Stewart is appealing because of a big week last week, but the last time he had nice numbers (week 11 with 15 carries for 130 + a TD), he followed up with 5 carries for 15 yds and 4 for 56 (with a 41 yard run). Too inconsistent for my tastes.

I'd go with Brown just for the fact that he will get more touches. I don't envy your position.

Too many good matchups here. Any help would be appreciated.

D. Rhodes vs Det ( Addai is out)
Portis vs Cin
D Williams VS Den
LT Vs Chiefs

Wondering if Redskins will go up big and sit Portis due to injury issues. I doubt I can go wrong here but tell me who the top 3 are in your opinion.
