Week 1 – RB – Start or Sit – Jonathan Stewart or Maurice Jones-Drew?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 11th, 2009 | 6 Comments

Question: Which RB do I start or sit in week 1?

Here are my RBs:

Ray Rice vs. KC
Jonathan Stewart vs. PHI
Maurice Jones-Drew vs.  IND
Steve Slaton vs. NYJ

I need to pick two. I was also proposed a trade of Jonathan Stewart and Steve Slaton for Andre Johnson and Ryan Grant. Do you think I should take it?


Ray Rice against Kansas City is a sure-fire bet, he’s your starter every week. You also have to go with Maurice Jones-Drew against Indy who is also soft against the run. You have to play your best players. Rice and MJD should be your starters every week regardinless of your matchup. Very nice group or RBs.

    id start jonathan stewart and MJD even against indie. as for that trade unless you have calvin johnson and larry fitzgerald which by looking at your RB i doubt you do I would do that trade.

    Pick Rice and Slaton and yes you should accept that trade that is a steal for you

    Probably Ray Rice at KC because their defense is horrible. The runner up would be Slaton versus the Jets.

    Yes, I would do that trade in a heart beat if I were getting Grant/Johnson. It’s an injured back-up RB (Stewart) and a small, likely to get injured RB who is now losing goal line carries (Slaton) FOR an every down RB (Grant) and a top 2 fantasy WR (Johnson).

    Do it and don’t look back.

    Rice and MJD.

    And on the trade, whoever gets Andre wins it big.

    Rice against KC. They will take about a 10 point lead and they will run the ball the rest of the game.

    As for the trade, I would do it if it is a PPR league. If not, stick to what you got.
