Ray Rice week 3 starter? (1 Viewer)

I noticed that Ray Rice is ranked number 22 on the week 3 cheatsheet, above the likes of LJ, LT, Ronnie Brown, and Lendale White. Am I missing something?

Baltimore homers, I need your input.

 
Beat writer Mike Preston guesses that Ray Rice will start in the Ravens' three-man committee this week.

Analysis: Preston believes that Rice could be Baltimore's feature back of the future, but also says that among the three (also Willis McGahee), only LeRon McClain is built to be a 25-30 carry runner. The Ravens are going to run it a lot going forward and the plan is to let all three guys "complement" each other.

 
The Ravens ran 40+ times against Cincy and they've said they'll work McGahee in - which means he's not the primary ballcarrier this week.

My best guess, assuming 40 carries:

Ray Rice 18

McClain 10

McGahee 12

 
uggg what a mess, was looking forward to willis in camerons offense this year. No clue who to start, still having a hard time buying that mclain and rice are going to get more carries than a healthy willis.

 
Im glad I have TJones and Bush, but im 0-2 despite being 2nd in the league in pts (and 2nd in pts each week), this situation is really frustrating me that much more

Yes, if I knew I had a healthy McGahee who would get 20 carries a game, it would make my WDIS decision harder, but knowing something like that allows me to make a trade

Seeing as how he was my 3rd round pick, this is starting to piss me off a little. I guess well see how they distribute the carries tomorrow, but I dont like (and dont understand) why you dont give Willis at least 60% of the carries (assuming hes 100% or close to it)

I dont think anyone wants him right now, but if he busts out tomorrow, WHAT DO YOU TRADE HIM FOR???

I don't get that. Did he watch Rice in college at all? I would agree more if Rice was one of those quick, skinny scat backs, but he's not.

I'm thinking that maybe Willis has been a 25 carry guy too.
