RB: DeMarco Murray, Matt Forte, knowshon
I was all in for Forte, but it has been suggested that he won't get many touches, particularly if the Bears take an early lead. It would take some serious convincing for me to start Knowshon here.

    I Would go with DeMarco Murray against a Bengals Defense that is predicated on stopping the pass this year rather than the run. Earlier they were giving up 150+ yds a game to opposing running backs and with the weather conditions to be quite chilly this Sunday in Cincinatti, I would take Murray for a 85-90 yard game and 1-2 tds.

    What are your thoughts on it? I had Forte set as my RB2, DeMarco as my flex, and Colston on the bench (with Julio Jones and Welker as my receivers). I'm considering benching Forte, moving DeMarco to RB2, and putting Colston back in Flex. Thoughts?

    Thats an interesting situation.. Matt Forte will probably have fewer touches in the red zone this week and Michael Bush will vulture his TD production, so like I said I think DeMarco is a better fit for your RB2 slot. As For Colston, Drew Brees and the Saints as well as the Eli and the Giants both come off of heart-felt losses and will be looking to exact revenge on the opposing defenses. Brees will be firing bombs against the sloppy Giants secondary, therefore Colston is a good bet for a 15+ points outting against a medicore Giants secondary . Hope that helps!

    I'd say Minnesota's D is leaky, GB isn't a running team and they ran for 152 yards vs them. I'd play Forte and Murray over Colston, even though this site says Colston should have the higher numbers. NE defense is improving and they'll match up Talib vs Colston in all likelihood. Talib may have off the field issues and be a jerk in general, but the guy is a + db.

    I was leaning toward Murray, but NFL.com has Colston as start of the week against the giants. I still like Julio over Comston, but am torn on Colston vs Murray or Forte.

    Go w/your gut here. It's not like I have all the answers and have given you my 2cents

    Hey Just FYI I wanted to point out New Orleans is playing the Giants D not Talib and New Englands D....If RG3 can find ways to exploit the Giants D Brees will have an easy time finding colston down the seam.

    Forte should be the starter here. Followed by Murray. Moreno a good option but not up with those two.

    PPR or standard?

    Standard. I was in total agreement the other day with your recommendation to start DeMarco over Colston at Flex, but the new ESPN flex rankings have Colston, DeMarco, and even Knowshon over Forte, so I am considering bumping Colston up to flex and outing DeMarco as my RB2. Not likely but considering.

    I meant putting DeMarco as my RB2.
