    Hmm.. well Terrace West is probably not the starter in Baltimore as they re-signed Forsett... And Blount is a NE running back which means Bellichek may not even use him.

    I have to say, I'd go with Blount. But neither are very good options.

    I agree on Blount. With Forsett returning, West is definitely a sketchy play and may not touch the ball much at all. Neither are optimal, with Blount going against the Cardinals defense though.

    Default Foster, Matt Jones or Melvin Gordon

    I have probably the worst possible matchups for running backs this week, with Jones, Foster and Gordon all going against top 3 running defenses from last year.

    Sadly, I have to pick one.

    Anyone have insight on who they would prefer this week?

    Standard, I'm assuming? Go with Gordon.

    Hmm. Probably still Gordon. Jones is banged up a bit, and I'd wait a week or 2 to see how Foster is utilized imo.

    I think Gordon is the safest bet.

    I thought avoiding Jones this week was the best play, just wasn't sure on Foster vs. Gordon.

    Think I'll just leave Gordon and see what happens. My entire team has pretty rough matchups this week, so it will be rough sledding regardless of which guy is my #2 RB.

    Out of curiosity, who's your RB1? Your RB position appears to be incredibly deep.

    I'd go Foster. He was named the starter in a Gase offense that was pretty friendly to Forte. I drafted Gordon in a lot of leagues, but want to wait and see how he performs before I play him. Woodhead is going to vulture his TD's. I'd say Jones if he wasn't banged up.

    Blount. He's boom or bust in that offense, but West is just going to be a bust.

    Ingram is my RB1. That one was the easy choice.

    And yeah, I got very lucky in this year's draft. Jones in the 7th and Melvin Gordon in the 8th. Hopefully this year makes up for last year's disaster of having Dez Bryant, Alshon and Peyton Manning all on my team.

    That was my big conundrum. With Gordon going against a tough D, I was afraid Woodhead would be on the field alot for pass catching. Jones is simply a matter of waiting to see how the shoulder is for a week.

    None of my 3 options are great this week though. Literally the 1,2,3 run defenses for those 3 guys to go up against.

    Considering how badly Gordon burned me last year, fuck him. Go with Matt Jones. He'll probably score more points even if he doesn't play.

    I'm not sure if I should start Christine Michael against a shitty Dolphins D, or Hyde against a so-so Rams D behind a bad OL. I'll probably go Hyde, because this league makes us submit our final lineup before the first game, which is ridiculous to me since teams don't announce shit until Friday/Saturday.
