Which RB would you start
 
So which running back would you start and why.

I am having an issue, I have both Slaton and McFadden. Right now I have Slaton starting this week b/c the Raiders are playing the Chargers.

However:

The Chargers no longer have Merriman but its still a divisional game and the Raiders have a slew of backs other than McFadden. But, McFadden didn't look at that great last week and of course, the Raiders suck.

The Texans however are playing the Ravens, anther really good run D.

I have Mendenhall but I just don't see him getting a lot of playing time.

Johnathan Stewart is available in FA but I just don't know how much time he will get in front of Williams.

So anybody got any advice?

I would start Slaton. I think he will get alot of touches and the texans O will be much better at home. Well, I hope so...

I'd pick up Stewart, and drop Mendenhall.....

Stewart is a hoss.......

Mendenhall will be, but not right now.

Have you seen him play? What is his role as the #2?

Is it more like a 1a 1b situation with him and Williams?

Tough choice but I would go Slaton. I think the Chargers front 7 will take care of the Raiders running game.

But maybe Slaton will get a few reception points for you.

I would start McFadden or see if Sproles (SD) is avalible.

I'd go Slaton over McFadden at this point.

if Carolina was healthy on the OL I would take Stewart, however LG Travelle Wharton (sprained left knee) & back-up Geoff Hangartner (Illness). McFadden is injured to what degree nobody knows so a healthy Steve Slayton along with OL that will be improved is going to have bigger role in the game plan this week, therefore should get the nod :twocents:
