    You can't take a chance with Maroney - who Belichick will keep mum on till game time. Sicne its a 4PM game it will be too late to make a change (in most leagues)

    Rudi is still questionable- though it looks like he'll go. KC has been surprisingly decent defensively however.

    Lendale White has a tough matchup with TB, but I think I'd give him the start. And a slight edge to Rudi over Dunn or Leonard.

    If you hear Rudi is out or splitting time, go with Dunn instead.

    Believe it or not, I think White may be one of your better options for this week. The Bucs defense has been better than average, but their offense has trouble scoring or even staying on the field. Look for that to continue this week, and watch the Titans running game benefit. The only worry with White is how many touches will the other TEN backs get?

    Maroney seems like a coin flip to start or not, there's a chance he might not even take the field, so it's kind of risky. The same is true for Johnson, whom I myself am probably benching, but I'll wait and decide just before noon on Sunday. Leonard is a bad choice, as that entire offense is struggling and even against an injured Ravens team, no one on the Rams roster will put up huge fantasy numbers this week.

    That leaves Dunn, who has made some comments recently trying to shift the blame for his lack of production onto the playcallers. He has a lot of pressure to back up those words, and he will feel it every time they hand him the rock. I'm not saying he will have a big game, but he might have the greatest motivation of anyone on your squad this week.

    Bottom line, go with White and Dunn, but keep an eye on Johnson and Maroney. If either of them are upgraded and likely to start, they would be preferrable to Dunn. Johnson is the most likely for this to happen, his game is at noon Central and he is likely to be a game time decision.

    Good Luck.

    You're pretty much screwed. Rudi and Dunn are playing like garbage this year. LenDale White may be a good choice against the Bucs defense. Laurence Maroney, in my opinion, will have a better game than Brian Leonard.

    So I say go with White and Maroney

    Rudi Johnson has been hurt, but I would start him if he is going to play. You will have to check the injurty reports Sunday. Maroney has also been hurt and not very productive so sit him this week. White should be a good start vs TB. Dunn is the starter and will get the ball. Leonard is a bad option vs Baltimore.

    So I would start Johnson, if he is going to play, or Dunn if not and White as #2.

    I'd go with Maroney (is going to start) and White.

    Leonard has a tough match-up and Johnson isn't playing in favor of Kenny Watson. Dunn isn't the problem in the ATL, the Falcons are the problem there.

    Rudi has been upgraded to probable and he is a no brainer. I would go Lendale for back number two. I hate the Titans but I think they are for real this year.

    Willie Parker. What are you even conversing approximately? he's against Cleveland's undesirable protection. i might decide to have that project, yet i might attempt to commence Willie and LenDale the two. Willie has the terrific matchup for particular, LenDale runs for one hundred yards each pastime those days, he's surprising. And in case you nonetheless had a W/R slot, placed Fargas in there when you consider that he's playing my undesirable Bears this week. I even have Willie at 4 on my checklist, LenDale at 11, and Fargas at 18, he's basically above MJD.
