Week 1 – RB Start/Sit – Chris Johnson, DeAngelo Williams, or Shonn Greene?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 9th, 2011 | 4 Comments

Question: Which RBs should I start in week 1?

Chris Johnson @ JAX
DeAngelo Williams @ ARI
Shonn Greene @ DAL

I am leaning towards DeAngelo and Shonn Greene because I am not sure how many touches Chris Johnson will get in his first week back. Tennessee’s coach also said that Johnson will be limited in his first game back.

Best answer:

Why would Chris Johnson be limited? I would play him since Jacksonville’s defense if atrocious. In the second RB spot, I would go with DeAngelo Williams since Arizona has a poor run defense and the Cowboys run defense should be pretty solid this year. Bench Greene this week.

    Easy. Johnson and Williams. I’m not too high on Green, as Tomlinson is still in the mix.

    Chris Johnson and DeAngelo Williams. I don’t know what you mean when you say “I am not sure how limited Johnson will be when he comes back” but he won’t be. Jacksonville’s defense is a disgrace and he has repeatedly tore them up in the past. DeAngelo should have a huge game. Arizona’s defense is also below average and have the tendency to get into shoot out’s.

    Chris Johnson- 150 total yards 2 TD’s
    DeAngelo Williams- 120 total yards 1 TD
    Shonn Green- 75 total yards 1 TD

    I’d still start Chris Johnson. Even with limited carries, he’ll probably still out perform Green. Its hard to not start a superstar. From watching pre-season, it looks like Dallas is having some health issues on defense, so Green might not be a bad bet either. I have Johnson and Green. So I will start those two.
