These are my 4 choices this week and you've pretty much nailed it as far as my thoughts on their matchups this week. I've been tempted to start Forte and Best in my PPR league but the matchup with Minnesota has me second guessing all week. Can I really sit him after his 2 week start? I'm in a wait-and-see approach with Williams. He'll probably be on my bench until he shows me something. That narrows it down to either Bradshaw or Best as my second RB. Bradshaw is probably the safer play but the thought of sitting Best only to see him blow up again isn't appealing either.Ahmad Bradshaw – He wasn't bad in NFL terms with 17/89 last week but owners were expecting Arian Foster like numbers and again I mentioned for you to not chase points. I also broke the game down from week 1 and mentioned that a lot his damage was done late in the 4th and when the Giants had a lead. I expect Bradshaw to see plenty of action in a good close game this week but Brandon Jacobs is frustrated right now and it will be interesting to see if Coughlin gives in a little bit and tries to get Jacobs more involved in the game. Jacobs had chances in week 1 but didn't cash them in.
Jahvid Best – I doubt an owner in any league the rest of the season will sit this guy. He moved to RB1 status in 1 week. I would temper some enthusiasm ad Philly's defense has not looked real good to this point but Best showed why so many owners wanted him. Something like 5 TDs in 2 games will have that affect. The Vikes only allow 3.7 ypc on the ground. The percentages are with me this week so I'll say that Best will be hard pressed to find the end zone this week. Vikes cannot ignore Calvin Johnson but they will make it a priority to stop Best. Somewhere in the 12-18 range for him this week.
Matt Forte – The only reason he is an auto start each week is that he is involved heavily with the pass offense. He isn't running the ball particularly well but he manages to gobble up receptions and has scored 3 TDs thru the air so far. 2.9 ypc but 12 receptions/180/3TDs so far, guy has absorbed Mike Martz offense beautifully. I would look for more receptions for him. He's on pace for 96 receptions and about 1,500 yds receiving plus 24 TDs…I know it won't continue but the numbers are pretty shocking.
DeAngelo Williams – If Fox weren't such an awful HC I might green light DeAngelo again this weekas Cinci allows almost 5 yds a clip on defense. And since Clausen is a rookie and since the Bengals secondary is pretty tight, you have to assume the game plan is attack attack attack that front seven with everything they got. I would run a 2 TE formation and run it right at Cinci all day. If Carolina could somehow establish the run they have a chance for a mild upset in this one.
