im starting jordan todman vs buf over ? (1 Viewer)

I picked him up and am debating on starting him over Bush, L Bell , Stacy and Tate. I have a lot of options and know whichever I choose will probably burn me. I'd love to start Bush but his calf scares the hell out of me.

 
Mulling him over Pierre Thomas as well.
I know thomas is ranked highly on several sites this week but his lack of td opportunities plus no frequently going pass heavy limits his upside imo
Thinking the same thing. Add to it that any given week Ingram and Sproles could eat into his production and I'm not sure why he's rated so high.

I'm leaning Todman over Thomas.

i'm starting stacy w/confidence :2cents:

 
One of these guys will also start beside Todman:

Chris Johnson

Greene

Gerhart

Mendenhall

BJGE

Daniel Thomas

Special thanks to Doug Martin and McFadden.

 
Joique Bell, Ivory, Gerhart

Would probably go with Gerhart if he was 100%, assuming ADP doesn't play of course. But the hamstring is concerning. Also sucks that Detroit plays Monday night.

 
Considering plying him over

BJGE vs PIT to go along with Gore

What I keep on thinking is that there are numerous backup RBs in the past that has had breakout performances at the end of the season. I'm hoping that this kid is one of those statistics

I agree, that's one of the reasons I have plugged in Todman. With Sproles looking more spry each week, plus Ingram getting carries, it's hard to know which NO RB will produce.

 
I got Fred Jackson and Jennings, Todman on the bench need to start one, I really like Fred for one TD this week, but have to go with Jennings as the Raiders love to run the ball. Can you really trust Todman in the playoffs

I don't trust the Saints rbs, donald brown, or Rainey vs a stout def. I do know jax is playing better, playing a soft run def who may be missing their best lb, at home, and todman is going to get most of the carries. He has shown flashes in preseason and during the year. Why not?

.lNice this makes my decision of starting Todman over cj2k easy. This guy constantly has made horrible calls all year.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have quietly turned their season around, winning three straight games and four of their last five to escape the AFC East cellar. If they're to continue that progress, the Jaguars are likely going to be without running back Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) this week against Buffalo.

With Jones-Drew looking iffy, coach Gus Bradley would turn to backup Jordan Todman, a relative unknown who spent much of his first two seasons on practice squads. Todman has gotten more involved in the Jags' offense in the last three weeks, but can he do enough to warrant consideration in fantasy football leagues?

Overview: Unheralded back poised to start if Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) can't go this week against Buffalo.

Background: A former sixth-round pick of the San Diego Chargers in the 2011 NFL draft. … had been a career practice squad player prior to this season, playing in just one game since being drafted. … had begun to see more playing time over the last three weeks, all of which were Jaguars wins. … ran the eighth-fastest time (4.40) at the 2011 NFL combine. … was named the Big East's offensive player of the year and earned second-team All-America honors after rushing for 1,695 yards and 14 touchdowns as a senior in 2010.

2013 stats: 43 carries, 138 yards, 2 TDs; 8 rec., 55 yards, 1 TD in 13 games.

Numbers and trends: The Jaguars have made a concerted effort to get him involved in the offense late in the season, with 23 carries (for 76 yards) in the last three games. … recorded just 20 carries in his first 10 games. … has managed three total touchdowns (two rushing) as a part-time player. … his NFL draft scouting report suggested he couldn't take the consistent pounding that comes as an NFL starter. … was described by Jaguars guard Uche Nwaneri as possessing "excellent speed," according to the Florida Times-Union.

Strengths: Great vision and speed are both in the scouting report for Todman, who has persevered to reach this point in his NFL career. … while his numbers (3.2 ypc) don't pop, Todman hasn't gotten many opportunities playing behind Jones-Drew. … even before MJD's injury, the Jaguars were committing more touches to Todman, which bodes well for his playing time down the stretch. … the remaining schedule is favorable, too, with Buffalo in Week 15, followed by Tennessee and Indianapolis.

Risk factors: Todman is slightly built and inexperienced, which doesn't inspire great confidence in his abilities as a starter. … Jacksonville ranks last in the NFL in rushing offense and second-to-last in rushing average (3.2 ypc), suggesting there are issues that go beyond the running backs. … Todman is dealing with a shoulder injury and has been limited in practice this week.

ESPN ownership: 1.3 percent.

Verdict: Week 15 could set up perfectly for Todman; a quality addition in all leagues against a Bills defense that has allowed five rushing touchdowns in its last four games.

 
Sorry....Starting Donald Brown over Todman.

A lot of experts don't have Todman ranked very high.

But I would start him over Ray Rice that's on my bench.

starting Todman over P.Thomas....its all about touches and hes the guy THIS week...im guessing he will want to make the most of it.

What have you seen in the Colts running game that makes you want to start brown? After all their talk of making Brown the starter they gave trich more carries. The week before if not for the final drive Browns stats would have been awful. Not really a knock on brown, I just think the oline blows and the coaches don't know what they want to do...bad situation. he does not have close to the upside todman has this week

Why over Rice?
I would guess because Rice has been awful this season besides the Defenses that were bad against the run like CHI. Rice did well against them but DET run Def is top 5, and before you mention McCoy and the Eagles tore them up, that was a total outlier. Besides Rice hasn't been the same this year, and McCoy is much better than Rice IMO.

The only one i thought about leaving off my list was cj2k. Thats a tossup imo and twist my arm id probably start cj

 
shady, you really think this guy is capable in making a great run the last games of the season?

i have no clue about next week. No name rbs seemingly come out of nowhere every year in the ff playoffs. All i know is jax has been playing great, mjd has been solid, now this guy steps in and will get all the touches vs a porous defense who may be missing their defensive roy. I think hes a no brainer rb2 and is a lock for 10pts +. Im not saying hes gonna be some savior.

Gotcha. Makes my decision easier knowing this guy is getting all the touches rather than BJGE who might get 10-12 and maybe a TD
 
You guys realize that Jacksonville is dead last in total offense, right?

Henne is beyond pathetic, they give up a ton of sacks, and Buffalo leads the league in sacks. Lots of carries for a RB doesn't necessarily help when he's facing 8 man fronts and getting buried in the backfield.
